Leong also mentioned which destinations the contest winners can look forward to:
We will be giving away 10 return tickets to destinations such as London, Paris, Tokyo, Seoul and Hong Kong to the winners.
MAS MH370 Debris Search Continues
In the meantime, the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 continues. Mohd Harridon Mohamed Suffian, from the Universiti Kuala Lumpur says that more debris will help the investigators determine the exact location of the missing plane in the Indian Ocean.
Using marine ecosystems analysis, comparing samples and recorded marine data, scientists can determine where the restudies originated. With more of the wreckage found, scientists would have more data, and more data means better chance of analysis accuracy.
MH370 went missing in March 2014, with little to indicate as to why and where. The search went on with little success until a flaperon was found on Reunion Island, east of Madagascar and south-west of Mauritius.
