Travelmania 2013 kicks off at BRIDEX


What are you waiting for?

Mind me with the low resolution pictures below as these are taken through smartphones and send through Whatsapp. The Travelmania 2013 just kicked off at 9am this morning at BRIDEX Hall and as usual, there are already plenty of crowd at the event. I am currently not there as I’m in Singapore right now. So thank you to my buddies who are now feeding me pictures while I’m updating it from Singapore.. Ah, it has been a while since I do this kind of coverage as if I am in a parallel universe.
Anyway, I just quickly recap what’s happening at BRIDEX today until Sunday. During the Travel Fair, visitors have the opportunity to take part in various promotions. Every booking or purchase made during the fair will earn you a chance in the lucky draw to win a Sony VAIO E-series, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2 sets) and B$200 Shopping voucher (2 sets). There are also Return Business Class tickets to Melbourne, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur, sponsored by Royal Brunei Airlines, up to be won.
