Wanderlust

wanderlust

I travel around quite a bit. I tend to season my vacations with a healthy sprinkling of adventure since I’m a huge adrenaline junkie. I’ve gone bungee jumping, skydiving, snowboarding, and cliff jumping in various parts of the world and I pronounce it GOOD. :)

However, it’s not just the things that raises your heart rate that appeals to me – I love immersing myself in culture and experiencing new things. That is adventure to me as well – novelty seeking and wanderlust.

underground

I often find myself planning for the next trip as soon as I come back. I’m pretty sure that I’ll be off somewhere when you’re reading this.

Hell, I’m going on a road trip tomorrow and another one this weekend so chances are I’ll not be at home. The wanderlust is never sated in me. :D

stonehenge

I update a lot while I’m away as well (much to the chagrin of my wallet) – anything from the usual social media suspects to sending an MMS of Stonehenge to my bff. Yes, I actually did that.

You know how data roaming can be a bit tricky at times?

adventure

I’ve got a question for you:

1. You’re in Australia using your postpaid line to stay connected on Twitter, Facebook and your blog
2. There is a 3 hour time difference and you’re flying off early tomorrow
3. When do you deactivate it?

I’ve always wondered – do you get charged for another day when the clock strikes 12 midnight in Malaysia or Australia local time?

It’s a Cinderella conundrum and something I plan to find out once and for all with Hotlink’s Prepaid Data Roaming. They’re the first in Malaysia to offer international data roaming while you’re on work or vacation somewhere else in the world. They’ve got 150 countries covered and counting!

script

I reckon it’ll be very useful while traveling. You know how much I love doing that.

Hotlink is running a contest called Bloggers without Borders where bloggers are divided into three categories – Food, Adventure and Fashion and we’ll get the chance to go to Manila, Bali and Bangkok respectively.

However, we have to earn that privilege and here’s where you come in. :)

Vote for me and suggest an activity you would like me to do. I’ll be heading down to Bali so there’s a lot of water sports going on there.

Here’s my video. I had a lot of fun doing it – enlisted the help of a random stranger who wanted to borrow my phone coz he forgot to bring his, behind-the-scenes stuff, driving with no hands (don’t try this at home) and other shenanigans.

haircut

I even got a haircut before making that video. ;)

I’ll be constantly updating and will be in touch if I get chosen to go to Bali so vote for me! I promise you, I’ll be game to do anything. Heh! There isn’t much I wouldn’t do actually.

Want me to jump of a plane without a chute and do a tandem harness in midair? Just ask me to. (Really, please, I would love to do this)

Want me to jump off a cliff? Yes, sir! (or ma’am)

Trust me, if you vote for me, you’ll get the chance to ask me to do stuff and see me tweet, Facebook and blog using Hotlink’s Prepaid Data Roaming JUST FOR YOU. No one else will be as fun and adventurous as me so you might as well get your friends to vote for me as well. ;)

You can vote for me here. :D

    • Heh! Thanks Anna! :)

      Hmm…there is no direct link to the video but just surf over and you’ll find my video in the RED circle on the bottom left on your screen.

      Thanks again for the support! :D

    • Cheers bro! :)

      I actually had even better footage – I was driving down that steep incline behind Jalan Semantan just holding on to the iPad while my friend did the videography and steered for me.

      Unfortunately, she pressed the wrong button and I didn’t realize until I got home so I had to refilm that bit.

    • Heh! I thought that was a hilarious sign too.

      It was taken in London – can’t remember which airport though, it’s either Stansted or Gatswick coz I use those two hubs to get around Europe.

      I think it might be the latter. The signage’s imagery is a bit overboard (pardon the pun) so I snapped a photo of it. :)

    • Thanks Kim!

      I was running around town to film it and decided to leave in some behind the scenes stuff.

      It was a lot of fun shooting it. :D

    • Thanks mate! :D

      I need all the votes I can get. Heh. There’s only 1 winner per bracket and I’m in the Adventure one.

      Appreciate the vote buddy! :)

  1. voted! i thought it was a good idea to cut your hair first before the swimming pool scene.. haha.. so that when u get up from the pool, your hair wouldn’t cover your eyes.. =D

    • Thanks Jovis! :)

      Haha! Yeah, my friend told me to cut my hair first before doing this video so I thought it would be funny to make THAT the start of the video.

      I actually had my hair cut already by the time I did the swimming pool scene.

      Cheers for voting mate! :D

    • Thanks Michelle! :D

      Yeah, I’m the type that’s always seeking constant sources of novelty. I guess in a way, that’s a good thing. :)

    • Thanks Eiling! :D

      Haha! Yeah, I don’t mind jumping off anything, as long as it’s survivable. ;)

      It sounds like a lot of fun.

      Cheers for the support! :)

  2. actually i think the most challenging thing for you to do, would be to sit quietly in a hotel room in bali and not move the whole time. i’d pay to see you do that. ahahaha but i voted for you anyway lah since you got a haircut.

    • HAHAHA

      Actually, come to think of it, that would be rather challenging to do especially when you know there’s so much fun to be had…and you’re forced to stay inside. :x

      w00t! I knew the haircut would come in handy, didn’t know it’ll work for swaying votes though. :D

      Thanks Fresh! <3
