Mabul Marine Week 2011, I Should be There

This is a contest.

I was skeptical whether I was able to join or to even qualify for a chance.  How can an airhead blogger with minimal tech-tech know-how is able to blog the fascination and beauty of this place.  I Can't!!

WRONG!!  I CAN...... just give me the opportunity to visit this place, and I CAN!!

Though CC have not visited Mabul island, the buzz and beauty of this place have long serenade with its famous cousin, Sipadan.  Just where are these islands?  Here:

The distance between the cousins is just a 20 mins speedboat ride.

What is so unique about Mabul?  Have you heard of the term "muck-diving"?  And did you know the term is believed to be first used here?  I'm not lying!!  Scuba-Junkie said so. You should reeeaaal-ly be visiting their website.  Its full of everything you need to know about diving in this part of the world.  Here's a pic I took out from its site:

The many-many diving sites.  Hmm???........Where's CC point??
Good, now that I've covered the introduction part, let's now reason why I should be there?  CC should be there becoz of:

Its MABUL MARINE WEEK 2011 SmileySmileySmiley

Not knowing much about this awareness effort, CC did some walking, i.e. fiddling the mouse searching websites with my fingers la.  Very very interesting o.  According to sabahtourism:

An annual conservation program which includes the clean up of the sea and its reefs, coral transplanting, exhibitions and various conservation activities to promote marine awareness among villagers, stakeholders, divers and the public. Come join us and become an ocean ambassador to protect our marine life.

Oooo, that sounds interesting..... an ocean ambassador.... I CAN do that!!  Here are some of the pics I found from Scuba Junkie's facebook on this program:
