Last week, I faced off against other bloggers in a battle of cultural and geographical wits!
We were playing a live gameshow quiz at UOB Plaza, in line with the launch of UOB’s travel insurance promotion.
A savvy traveller is one who knows the importance of having travel insurance to ensure a worry-free and enjoyable holiday.
Besides making necessary preparations or trips, a savvy traveller is also one who expands his horizons with knowledge of the vast and fascinating world around us.
And thus the basis of UOB’s new Travel Savvy online game, where you’re tested on your general knowledge of flags, foods, landmarks and traditional costumes from around the world. It’s not dumb fun but actually very interesting and educational I must say.
Select from 2 choices the correct answer for the picture
My fellow contestants for the game were Brad (ladyironchef) and Christabel (representing thesmartlocal).
In the first round, we each teamed up with one of our followers to play. The winner that I selected from my participating followers was Jeelene, a sweet young graduate. Was lovely to meet her :)
Deep in intellectual discussion on the finer points of difference between the Hungarian and Norwegian national dress
The funny thing was that Brad’s challenges were ALWAYS food photos! Ohhh organizers, make it a bit more difficult for him hey? :P
Jeelene and I were so close to beating Brad’s team; too bad they hit the buzzer faster than us for the last question!
Good fight nonetheless Jeelene ;) Thank you for coming down to participate with me, I hope you had fun with us!
Half an hour later, was our *drum roll* blogger face-off challenge. Just us. All. Alone. With. No. Help.
Indonesia or Cambodia? Germany or Portugal? Things got pretty tricky at some parts.
Once again, I was through to the very final question. But this time it was a tie-breaker with Christabel… and it’s too bad I didn’t hit the buzzer first. Ahhh, total deja vu.
But it’s okay, it was all good fun together! :)
Throughout the day the public also had the opportunity to take part in the game and walk away with many travel prizes.

My sister came down to support, muacks.
Was happy to catch up with Melody again (Brad’s pretty fiancé!)

The Travel Savvy game goes on for another 2 weeks, so don’t miss out!
It’s really simple (or not) to play.
**WARNING: Highly addictive
Simply pick the correct answer to the picture shown. Your aim is to get as many questions correct consecutively and in the fastest time possible. Be careful, one mistake and the game ends.
Some questions are really easy, but they do throw a curveball at you once in a while. Which makes it all the more exciting.
Once you’ve proven your travel savvy greatness, remember to register when prompted to qualify for the prizes.
One way to increase your chances in the Grand Lucky Draw is to buy Insure & Travel Enhanced
You can also find Insure & Travel Enhanced on the game’s website, plus there is an ongoing 25% promotional discount now on their variety of plans to suit your every need!
It’s definitely a good idea — you get coverage for your overseas holidays, while getting one step luckier to winning those SQ tickets :)
When I travel I always make sure I have travel insurance - It’s better to be safe than sorry. I really don’t want to deal with the nightmare of lost luggage, flight delays or medical emergencies all by myself and out of my own pocket.
Why travel insurance and Insure & Travel?
1. Get insured even before you actually travel! For instance, it covers trip cancellation.
2. Unlimited coverage for emergency medical evacuation & repatriation. For instance, UOI has engaged International SOS to provide emergency medical assistance worldwide.
3. Up to S$300,000 for Medical, Dental & Other Expenses incurred overseas. For instance, you meet with any unfortunate event overseas and require medical assistance while you are still overseas.
4. Up to S$250,000 for Personal Accident
