Saturday, February 09, 2013

Where do I begin? Wokay let’s begin with I gotten the invitation to join Krabi TSDayout Special Edition organized by Tourism Selangor. Indeed it was a moment that I never forget. I thought I have to restrain myself from travelling to save up for my bigger travel in 2014. All thanks to Tourism Selangor for making this trip possible. Going on a road trip to Krabi is something very fun and adventurous to do!!
Do you know what is TSDayOut? if you follow some of my previous post I’ve join 2 TSDayOut and if you had read my post then you already know what is TSDayOut by now. For new reader, welcome to my planet and let me share with you what is TSDayOut.
“There’s so much Selangor has to offer but not many are aware of her beauty. So this is where #TSDayOut comes in.
With the help of social media, we engage with our fans and followers via twitter and Facebook; bring them to explore and experience Selangor first hand with us.
This is also our way of getting to know those who’s been supporting us as well as thanking them for all their effort.
So what do we expect from #TSDayOut? A trip you can have fun!”

So if you want to join in the fun please follow @TourismSelangor in Twitter and their FB Page at Tourism Selangor.
I wake up as early as 5am to get ready to arrive at Tourism Selangor Office by 6.30 a.m. Well off course I went for a breakfast with my Darling before I leave him alone for the weekend!
