For those of you who are frequent visitors of this blog, you are probably right to guess that one of the adventures I love to indulge in is diving (and of course, food, but you know that already). It is a hobby that started out some 8 years ago and really got intensified in the last 3 years or so.
So far, I’ve dived at Tenggol, Redang, Lang Tengah, Pulau Sembilan, Sipadan, Similan Islands, Bali, and even KLCC Aquaria. The experiences in diving are especially rewarding, the tranquility underwater, the island life, and above all, the sense of adventure that comes with it.
After all, there aren’t many activities where you get to see some of the most magnificent animals in their natural habitat up close and personal, I always remember how the manta rays performing their mating rituals right in front of me in Bali, the beautiful leopard sharks resting on the sea floor in Lang Tengah, the curious sea turtles at Sipadan, and more.
Earth is after all, 70% covered with water, and if you stick to not ever getting wet, you’d be missing out quite a lot.
Sharing your adventures and looking for new inspirations if you’re running out of one used mean looking and browsing blogs and your friend’s facebook feeds, but now there’s an easier way.
NESTLÃ‰ DRUMSTICKÂ created the Home Of AdventureÂ Facebook application especially for this purpose, and I urge you to check it out.
The aim of the application is twofold – allowing user to share their adventures, and others to browse and get ideas on what they are and most importantly, where they can do it.
Best of all, these adventures are all right here in Malaysia. The adventures are categorize in Water Extreme, Thrill Seeker, Food Travels, and Nature Quests category.
To view the adventures shared by others, simply access the application, choose either East or West Malaysia, then click on the Adventure pins created by other users. You can read about what they are and check out the pictures or videos uploaded in each of them.
If you want to add your adventure on the same location, you can do so immediately too.
To share your adventure of a new location, click on the Pin Your Adventure tab, choose a state, and then click on the location of your adventure.
After that all you have to do is select a category and describe the adventure in 50 words of less. Optionally you can also upload photos or videos associated with your entry, and viola, it is done. It is simple as that.
As if sharing adventures to other fellow thrill seekers alike isn’t a good enough motivation, doing so might also net you some cash prices!
NESTLÃ‰ DRUMSTICK is giving out a total of RM 35,000 based on the creativity of each user submission. Winner walks away with RM 500 each, so be creative!
The contest runs fromÂ 5th Nov â€“ 23rd Dec 2012, so get your submissions in already. Good luck fellowÂ adventurers!
