SEPANG, 21 August 2017 - Creative director Emalina Aimi Edris along with her three travel buddies emerged as winners for AirAsia X Ultimate Xventure Challenge final held at Sunway Lagoon Extreme Park on Sunday. They won a grand prize of a four-day and three nights trip to New Zealand after defeating three other teams in the challenge.

"It came as a surprise as we thought we did poorly initially. Happy that AirAsia X had organised this contest. I didn't know that AirAsia X flies to New Zealand before this although AirAsia is my choice of airline because it flies to exotic destinations. New Zealand was in my bucket list last year, and it is happening this year," said Emalina who found out about AirAsia X Ultimate Xventure Challenge through her friend who heard about it via Fly FM radio.
Emalina is one of the winners who made it to the final of the challenge which is a collaboration between AirAsia X and Sunway.
