Yeah… I read it from the newspaper few days ago. Our Sabah’s Minister of Tourism, Datuk Masidi Manjun urged us to vote Sipadan Island as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Although we have not heard any good news on him getting the price of Kinabalu climbing down, I think we should support him and our government vote for Sipadan.
Head to New7Wonders website, fill up some form and cast your vote for Sipadan. You have one voice and seven votes, in which you cannot vote for the same place for all your votes. It has to be different places. Otherwise they will ask you to cast your vote again.
I have done my part on voting. Personally, I voted the places that are nearer to our country and neighboring countries, so that I could easily visit the places if they ever be selected.
As a support, I am also putting a voting widget in my sidebar until the voting process ended. The voting will continue through 2010 and 2011. However, to get Sipadan to qualify for the next stage of voting, it needs to be at least 11th place in Group B (Islands) by July 7, 2009. At the moment of writing, Sipadan is at 17th place. So please cast your vote now!
While writing this post, I found a nice writing on Sipadan diving experience here. A nice read for scuba junkies.
P/S: Good news for Facebook junkies. You can become a fan of New7Wonders inside!
