Matta Fair 2012

Going to Matta Fair has been our annual event.  Actually, we seldom buy any holiday packages from Matta Fair.  Our main objective was just to go there and look-see-look-see.  I like to see what are the new hotels and the promotions that they offer during Matta Fair.  Last time, we used to purchase the local hotel stay but after a while, these hotels rates seem to be going up and up the hill.  Prices of hotels have gone up a lot.  Five years ago, I remember we were able to steal some good deals for RM80 nett per room for a 4 start hotel in Penang.  Recently, there are no more hotels under RM100.  

We  love to collect brochures from all the countries that have booth at Matta Fair and read about their country.  Well, this is what we normally do when you don’t have the $$$ to travel ^__^.   This time, besides collecting the brochures, we also managed to collect some freebies.  Anlene had a  booth there and offered free bone analysis.  Upon completing the consultation, we were given a small pack of Anlene chocolate milk. 

 The event was from 10am to 9pm and the entrance fee was RM3 for adult and kids under the age of 12 are FOC.  We spent almost 3 hours browsing through all the booths. 

Here are the brochures that we collected from the fair plus our freebies ^__^.  The Taiwan Tourism gave is a water proof paper bag which I find it very useful for travelling use.

The Indonesia tourism gave us a serai soap.  It was nicely pack in a small box.  This is the first time I saw a serai soap and the smell is so nice!


  1. Lotsa goodies ya....with kids, I never been there even once.

  2. Mummy Ling,
    Thanks! Yes, I agreed with you, it was kind of difficult to bring the kids there. They don't have patience to walk booth to booth!

  3. wah, so many freebies. I love freebies too but just can't make it this time round.
