No MATTA Fair for me

The first of the twice-a-year MATTA (Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents) Fair 2010 is on this weekend, from 12th-14th of March 2010 (10am to 9pm) at Putra World Trade Center (PWTC) Kuala Lumpur. I wanted to go and get a good travel deal but with no clear idea of when and where I wish to visit this year, it is no go for me this time.

Since it turned out this way, I just have to be contented with sitting at home and looking through our previous travel photos. Here are some photos from my 3-day Copenhagen trip from 3rd-5th of October 2002. We went there because our airmiles were going to expire so we used them instead of wasting them.

We stayed at the Ibis Triton Hotel, room 518. The above photo shows the view from the main door.

It has a very big bathroom.

We did not get to try the famous traditional Danish open faced sandwiches, "smørrebrød" because we were too full from dinner when we came across them but we managed to take a photo of them. They looked delicious so it was really a pity we did not get to taste them.

I am standing in front of the Kronborg Castle in Elsinore. This castle is the castle mentioned in Shakespeare's Hamlet and we spent a fair amount of time looking through each room in the castle. We also visited the Frederiksborg Castle but did not pay to go inside as there was not enough time to do so.

We went on a river cruise and admired the little mermaid from the boat. We did not manage to visit the Tivoli Gardens because it was closed during the 3 days that we were in Copenhagen.

As we went on our own, we spent most of our time walking to the castles from the train stations so we were very, very tired at the end of each day. But looking back now, it was a memorable short trip.


  1. Wow!! It looks memorable alright! I love your hotel room! It looks cozy!!

  2. So what's next Mun? Seems that you have been to most of the famous city in world!

  3. How I envy you! At least you have been to so many places already...Hehe! Another year for me to stay put and no holiday...sob sob...

  4. GerryMoon, it does look cozy, doesn't it? :)

    sdovelly, I have to discuss with my travel companions on where to go next. Got to consult the pocket too. ;) Can't seem to be able to reach a consensus so don't think I'll get to go anywhere this year. :(

    Jennifer, when you have completed your Masters, then you can reward yourself by going on a long holiday to your dream destination! The time will come for you!
