MSS 2011 Day 1: The Launch of My Selangor Story 2011 @ The Mix

9 10 2011

On the 28th September 2011, I participated in a five days trip called the My Selangor Story 2011 or MSS 2011 for short. MSS 2011 is a tourism blogging project created and organized by Horizon Communications to promote the many places of interest in Selangor state through social media. Hence, a handful of local and international bloggers were selected by the organizer to join the tour and more importantly to blog and promote the event throughout the entire five days trip.

The trip kick started at Holiday Inn Kuala Lumpur Glenmarie where bloggers, partners and sponsors congregated for a press conference at The Mix.

The press conference started at around 4:30 p.m. when Amelia Tan who represented Horizon Communications gave a short welcoming speech.

This was followed with a rousing round of applause for YB Elizabeth Wong (EXCO for Tourism, Environment & Consumer Affairs) who addresses the fellow bloggers and elaborated on the objectives behind MSS 2011 which is to promote Selangor’s cultural diversity and rich tourism resource to travelers around the world.

Ms. Dian Azura Muhammad Ghiathuddin was also invited to the floor to share her experience on winning the past MSS 2010.

Here are some of the candid pictures taken during and after the press conference.

And here are some of the pictures of all the bloggers who were qualified for the MSS 2011. Congratulations to all of you!

On this note, I would like to personally thank our sponsors and partners for supporting MSS 2011.
