Sabahan shortlisted for “best job in the world”

Jackie Miao from Sabah has been listed as one of the top 50 candidates for the best job in the world. The job is to explore Australia’s Great Barrier Reef islands and report it back to the internet through the use of a blog, with pictures and videos. The job lasts for 6 months and the selected one will also ” feed the fish, collect the mail, and clean the pool”.

This is a publicity stunt by Tourism Queensland to promote the islands.

Taken from the Star, it reports on Jackie “Ever since she was 11, Miao had tagged along with her father on numerous island and reef cruises as he owns a tourist company, the Coral Island Cruises”.
