Adlington’s confession truly surprised me. I’m completely the opposite of Adlington.
I love sea, I cannot get enough of sea and ocean.

Luckily, I live in Indonesia, where the sea and ocean water are warm, and as an avid scuba diver, I am even more lucky as Indonesia has the world’s top diving locations.

Oh, and I love eating fish and seafood too .. 🙂
