Update: for a hilarious report on the trip visit Kennysia.com, for an Indonesian perspective of the trip read Ollie, who also has this photo of Enda and Unspun pretending to be Austins Powers amid a bevy of Air Asia flight stewardesses at LCCT, Kuala Lumpur (photo grabbed from Ollie’s blog).
Elephants can fly and Unspun can be invited by Air Asia on an event they sponsored.
Improbable as it sounds Unspun was actually invited by Air Asia to spend ASEAN’s 42nd Anniversary in Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok – all within a day.
Aug 10, 2009 – This post is filed under English, Ideas, Social Media The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) celebrated its 42nd birthday on Saturday with a difference. It took to the skies for an event that took in three ASEAN cities in a day. Maverick Network dispatched our Technical Advisor Ong Hock Chuan as his alter ego, the vinegary and skeptical Unspun, to cover this event. This is his report.
It is ironic and unsaid, but Unspun suspects he was invited to the ASEAN’s 42nd anniversary celebrations on Saturday because he’s been critical of Air Asia in several postings in the past.
One thing you have to admire about the Air Asia guys though, is that they take criticism in their stride and rather than go into denial, they take on board the criticisms and engage their critics.
