This week’s 6 of the Best comes from Sam Forrest, Director of Global Communications and Content at KamaGames.

I got to disappear for 4 weeks over last Christmas and visit South East Asia. I managed to get to Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand with the highlight definitely being a tiny island between Malaysia and Thailand called Koh Lipe. A very chilled out spot with great diving and cold beer – what else could you need!?
Wearing shoes upon my return was definitely a challenge as was dealing with going from a 30 degree to a -2 degree climate. Needless to say flights are already being researched for next Christmas although a couple of weeks on the Croatian islands between now and then would be a bonus!
I honestly don’t have one as there are simply too many choices to pick. That said, a staple on vinyl, CD, MP3 and Spotify in one way or another over the years are Raising Hell by Run-DMC and Licenced to Ill by Beastie Boys.
Best sporting experience
It’s was definitely my first visit to Twickenham years ago to see England vs Scotland. Sadly, I don’t actually remember most of the game due to being in a “very sociable” section surrounded by gentlemen who insisted on sharing hipflasks, but needless to say it was a great day, with a great atmosphere… apparently.
Tricky as it really depends on mood. I am a real action and sci-fi fan so 13 Hours and BlackHawk Down are going to be up there but I think good old Alien is going to win this one.
Lightening by Dean Koontz, a fantastic book. I’ve acquired several copies over the years and normally have a copy with me when I am away on holiday. Oh and I also have a version on my phone just in case. After all, who doesn’t like time travelling Nazis.
Well it should have been at this year’s Grand National with Ucello Conti at £100 to win which would have meant a rather pleasant rest of the weekend for yours truly. Then of course, the 3rd fence from the end changed a night at the Hawksmore to a night at AbraKebabra…. So, a great bet, but not a great result (these were not the calm words I chose to use at the time I hasten to add).
