4. Enter a Video Contest – completed! (31.3.2013)
When I made the first video about my 33 things to do list, I entered it into a video contest. It was a contest organized by Joinmethere.tv. What I didn’t expect was the video would win 3rd prize! It was definitely a very pleasant surprise. If you haven’t seen the video yet, click here. Oh, and now is a good time to subscribe to my YouTube channel! 🙂
32. Try go-kart racing – completed! (27.7.2013)
So last Saturday I tried go-kart racing for the first time. I didn’t know what to expect but I must say I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the place was very well run. They had electric go-karts (pollution free) and a modern facility. The staff were not very helpful but I think it’s because of language barrier. Luckily my friends were able to explain how to drive a go-cart to me. They mentioned about a turbo button on the steering wheel which when pressed, will turbo charge the speed for about 10 seconds. I didn’t get to experiment with it since I felt I was going fast enough without hitting the safety rail. Ok, to be honest, I sucked. I was the slowest driver. You can see the race results in the picture below. Anyway, it was still fun. I already made a mental note to myself that next time I will not be such a wuss.
