In conjunction with travel 3Sixty°’s magazine 10th anniversary, we held a 3-day carnival at Fahrenheit 88 in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. There were musical performances, talks and fun games held at the event. AirAsia’s Fun Team was also there along with Assraf, the flight attendant who made global headlines with his dance performance inspired by Britney Spear’s Toxic music video.

We also gave away fantastic prizes that included flights tickets to Hawaii, free hotel stays in Bali and many more!

Here’s what went down at the 3-day event.

DAY 1

The magazine revealed an updated look that is more modern, sleek and reader friendly. Day 1’s event was officiated by the travel 3Sixty°’s publisher, AirAsia Berhad Executive Chairman and AirAsia X Group CEO, Datuk Kamarudin Meranun. It was also announced that the magazine now uses a lightweight matte paper that reduces its weight by 20 percent, which helps save jet fuel.
