Earlier this year, sometime around summer, Axe held a a global Facebook contest where they selected 60 winners from 19 countries to come together to party on an exotic island they named the ‘Axe Anarchy Island‘.
The campaign was held quite differently in every country. I heard the guys from South America had to play a Facebook game and invite friends to win. For Axe Malaysia, contestants were asked to send in their best beach photo. That’s easy… but in order to win, you (and your photo) must really had to stand out . The winner gets to bring his best buddy to party on Axe Anarchy Island with me and 20 Axe girls! Everyone knows I’m fun to party with 😛
10 guys from Malaysia were shortlisted by Axe and I got to the final winner…
David’s photo fit all the criteria – 1) he chose a photo of him on the beach, 2) he’s already rocking a tan, 3) he’s obviously spent some time in the gym too. He looks ALL SET for Axe Anarchy Island. Not to mention I think the Axe girls will love him too. The best part about winning is he gets to share a free vacation with his best buddy!
Nuffnang held a blogging contest for this campaign as well, check out who and why Sha won! Sha brought his lovely fiancé, Suwen, and I finally got to meet David and his homie, Shen (both originally from Malacca), at Kuala Lumpur airport just before we all embarked on this trip together.
It was a long flight to our final airport destination in Belize, but we made the most out of it and took the chance to get to know each other a little better. We shared a lot of laughs and silly jokes. They were a fun bunch to travel with!
We made it to Belize after more than 30 hours traveling from one airport to another. Phew! The last time I was in Central America was back in 2008 when I did my first backpacking trip to Guatemala. The weather was all the same – tropical and sunny. Just like how it is near the equator. I can’t wait to get my tan on!
From Belize airport, we boarded a smaller plane that took us to ‘Paradise Resort’ in Placencia Island where we spent the night so we could recharge before going to Axe Anarchy Island the following day. I was so glad to jump in the shower and sleep on a proper bed. Everyone was quite amazed that I could sleep throughout pretty much the entire flight, but my body was aching everywhere. Nothing beats proper sleep on a bed with fluffy pillows.
The next day, Suwen and I explored a bit of Placencia before heading off to Axe Anarchy Island.
We were joined with other winners from all parts of the world from Thailand to Trinidad. Like I said, 60 guys and girls from 19 different countries! The guy to girl ratio? 5 : 1
This trip was a treat especially for the Axe men!
Ever heard of blobbing? It has got to be one of the highlights that evening…
We had this huge air bag called the blob. Sit on one end of the blob and get someone to jump on the other end. The bigger the impact, the higher you’ll get launched up the air!
Here’s a video (taken by Sha) of me on the blob!
Jet lag started to creep in as the sun went down but most of us were having too much fun to care. After dinner, the chaos continued with a game of beer pong, initiated by one of the guys from the UK.
This video sums up the whole evening…
Our next venture on Axe Anarchy Island lurks around the corner. Stay tuned!
