Come Join The Malaysian Travel Bloggers Second Meet Up!

IMG_1696

It’s been a year since the very first Malaysian Travel Bloggers Meet Up in 2012 by the wonderful people of Sedunia Travel, and since then it has been a very exciting journey bonding with like minded bloggers who share the same passion. The reason why I decided to attend this first meet-up was also to learn more about the blogging world from experienced people such as Illya (Wonderful Malaysia)David (Malaysia Asia) and Dian (Tourism Selangor). At that time I was slowly starting to be active in the local State Tourisms’ activity and meeting them gave me more insight to travelers behaviour, tips on utilising social media as well the technical aspects of blogging.

This is where it all started!

Despite that, I do feel that meeting new people has been the best thing that has ever happened within a year and here are some photos to prove that. Here are some of the photos of what took place a year after the first Malaysian Travel Bloggers Meet-Up.

      Hi Hannah,

      I met you even BEFORE Malaysian Travel Bloggers Meet-up during the MITBCA dinner two years ago?
      When you told me about having a meet-up for the blogging community, I thought it was brilliant. What better way to meet connect people together through the same interests. Sedunia Rocks!

      Cheers.
      Fie
