I had an epiphany while I pressed my tongue against the roof of my mouth. This would make a great Slurpeelicious contest entry!
(but first, a flashback)
The last time I did an entry about Slurpee, I had to walk 1,000 miles to do it. Okay, maybe that’s a wee bit of an exaggeration…I took a boat, and it was only 463 km. The only reason I went there was to drink Slurpee. Seriously. There are no 7-Eleven outlets in Sibu, so the nearest place I could go was Kuching.
I snuck off work early on Saturday (please don’t tell my ex-boss) and took an express (boats in Sarawak are called “express”, not buses) down to Kuching, where Irene picked me up. I was hunting for Mystery Flavor 1 and Mystery Flavor 2 and went to damn near all the 7-Eleven outlets in Kuching before I finally found one that has it.
I went there solely for the Slurpee post and had to catch the boat back the next morning. I nearly missed the cursed express to boot! I calculate that I spent more for that trip than I earned in the advertorial but that’s not the important thing – the important thing is that I enjoyed doing it!
(flash-forward to today)
I only had to walk 5 meters to 7-Eleven this time coz I’m living in Petaling Jaya now, but I still had to…er, brave the rain. Okay, the drizzle! There was a very slight one. Honest!
The Slurpeelicious contest is all about you waltzing into your friendly neighborhood 7-Eleven and taking a photo of yourself in a Slurpeelicious moment and submitting it to Slurpeelicious@nuffnang.com
The Slurpee can be of any size and flavor e.g.
This here is the rare and mysterious Yellow Raspberry scented with Vanilla Melon Slurpee – a concoction produced by mixing Yellow Melon and Vanilla Raspberry. Trust me; it tastes better than it looks. Layered properly, it’s quite a refreshing drink indeed.
The Slurpee must take up 40% of the entire photo size. I’m not sure how to calculate that but I gather:
There’s 6,000 smackeroos in cold (geddit?) hard cash up for grabs if you snag the first prize. To the best of my understanding the prizes are:
Cash prize of RM 6,000 and 7-Eleven Gift Certificate of RM 100
Cash prize of RM 3,000 and 7-Eleven Gift Certificate of RM 100
Cash prize of RM 1,000 and 7-Eleven Gift Certificate of RM 100
3 x Consolation Prize
7-Eleven Gift Certificate of RM 100
You can opt to furnish an anecdote of your Slurpeelicious moment with your entry like the haiku here:
The Mariner says
Water water everywhere
Not a drop to drink
Had he lived today
Away from the seven seas
He might have wrote this
Land Ahoy, let’s chill!
My Slurpeelicious moment
Be it land or sea!
