SZB - FIFA World Cup™ Trophy Tour 2014

Recommended Posts

Time flies as our coverage for the trophy plane 4 years ago in this thread at KUL --> http://www.malaysianwings.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=13956&hl=world was still in my mind.


Ong was busy and unable to attend this event. At the very last minute, WT Liew and myself was on leave to cover for him. :pardon:

Many thanks to MAB, event organizer and the PR company and their teams to allow us to cover the event.


I will let the photos do the talking from here.


Media arrival at 1400 at SZB VIP lounge at Gate 38



We were greeted by the lovely ladies at the entrance



More ladies at the registration counter



Here's the main stage for the event inside the lounge



Emcee did announce that the aircraft is slightly delay.

Event started around 1500 with speech by Mr Argustinus Gunadharma, Franchise Director of Coca Cola Far East Ltd Malaysia



Another short but hilarious speech by YH Dato' Sri Subahan Kamal, Senior VP of Football Association Malaysia



At around 1525, we were invited outside of the lounge to greet the arrival of the "star" for this event

Dwight Yorke as FIFA Ambassador giving a speech



After a short Q&A, The trophy is reveal to all. Guest can take a photo with the trophy with handphone camera and no DSLR allowed :pardon:



For me, I was out in the tarmec with the aircraft :clapping:



Dark clouds are forming in the background .....



Heavy rain started at around 1700 and the AC is on tow to Transmile hangar in the rain



Concluded my coverage for the event. Perhaps Liew have more shots to show when he is free.


Many thanks to Mike Tayaa, David Ong-Yeoh & Koh Mayanne both from PR, for making this a memorable event for the start of 2014.


FYI, the above aircraft will depart SZB 6 Jan 2014 Mon 0900 to CGK.
