Assalamualaikum korang! I know, dah lama berteman sepi blog ni haha. Poof poof (tiup habuk).
Nevermind, saya just nak bagitahu yang i've been planning a holiday trip to South Korea for months. Korea has always been on top of my bucket list. It has a mix of modern and traditional culture.
Tu tak sebut lagi part minat lagu K-Pop dan drama Korea haha. Cuma bila usia dah menginjak 28 tahun ni, dah kurang la sikit part kipas-susah-mati tu.
Tentatively me, hubby and lil Haneen who's now ~1.2 years old will be leaving for Korea in mid September 2015 by Air Asia X. Masa tu masih early autumn, so please expect daun-daun merah dan oren tak keluar lagi. Sad. Tersilap percaturan.
Btw, kalau korang nak melancong ke Korea masa peak of autumn, sila pergi at least akhir bulan September to October ok? Now Farah, please please move on.
Have you ever heard of Korea Plaza? It's situated at the Ground Floor of Menara Hap Seng, Jalan P Ramlee, Kuala Lumpur. Korea Plaza ni menempatkan Korea Travel Organization (KTO) Kuala Lumpur office.
Sekarang dorang tengah buat "Discover Korea Your Way" Giveaway Promotion. For Malaysians who are planning to visit Korea this year starting from July to December 2015, KTO is offering their Coupon Booklet with great deals inside together with the Big Bang T-Money worth 8,000 Won!
So apa tu T-Money? Kalau di Malaysia T-Money ni ala-ala Touch n' Go la. Sangat berguna di Korea, di mana kita boleh reload dan guna di mana-mana convenience stores and just swipe bila nak naik subway train, public bus, taxi dsb.
T-Money dijual dalam pelbagai bentuk; kad, key chain and cell phone charms.
Penggunaan T-Money ni lebih jimat daripada kita beli ticket each time nak naik public transport sebab ada discounted price. Jadi kenapa bayar lebih?
Tambah lagi, this T-Money worth 8000 won bersamaan RM24, inclusive of 3000 won credit (RM9). Boleh la cover 2 subway trips. Kalau redeem 2 T-Money; satu untuk diri sendiri dan satu lagi untuk spouse, tak ke dah jimat RM48 di situ. Berbaloi-baloi!
Kalau tak habis pakai sebelum balik Malaysia pun kita boleh spend kat airport buat beli makanan or whatnot.
So, macam mana nak dapatkan free T-Money from KTO ni? All you have to do is to answer the survey at their website and provide them with the particulars listed below to redeem:
I did the survey last night before going to bed (semangat!). The survey was mainly about our trip to Korea i.e. which part of Korea we'll be going to, where do we stay, either at a hotel or guesthouse etc.
So hari ni pada waktu lunch, saya terus bergegas pergi ke Korea Plaza sebab nak redeem the T-Money and Coupon Booklet. Of course, all the documentations jangan lupa, nanti tak dapat free gifts tu pulak.
Let say dalam your flight itinerary ada the name of your spouse, he also must do the survey to get his own T-Money. But for the redemption process, one person can redeem for others as long as the documentation is complete.
Btw, saya dapat T-Money dalaam bentuk cellphone charm! Hehe. Kalau tak silap, if this type of T-Money out of stock, KTO akan give away card-type T-Money bermotifkan makanan Korea pulak.
Korea Plaza on the other hand is an interesting and helpful place i must say. You can ask for Seoul map and Guide Book for you to refer to. They might come in handy when you're travelling to Korea.
The rest macam booklets and pamphlets you can just take them from the rack. Juga ada buku panduan untuk Muslim yang melancong ke Korea. Yep, they're free of charge! Yeay!
You can even try out their traditional clothing i.e. Hanbok for free. KTO also provides Korean food cooking class, K-Pop dance class and Korean language class for you to join.
So nak tengok ke macam mana rupa dalam Korea Plaza tu? Let the pictures do all the talking. ^_^
P/s: Btw, i did ask them about the status of MERS currently. And they said it's under control now. Dengan nama Allah, kami bertawakal. Amin.
Till then! Salam!
