This is sooooo boring. Some people are away over on the east coast doing long weekend dives. And I am stuck here in the Klang Valley breathing lead….and Indonesian firewood. 12 days to hit the water.
Good to know that the Sea Hunters filmed the two former British capital ships back in June 2005. They were on the MV Grace. They plan to go back to the two wrecks next year between March and April.
Last night I met some divers at one of the places divers in Kuala Lumpur normally hang out. They were talking about going to Tioman next month. The return date clashes with my wife’s departure to Beijing. So last night, I discussed with the wife, and she is all excited about her Beijing trip, but said that since my return will be on the day she leaves for Beijing, then it would be okay for me to go to Tioman for the dive.
Haha! Tioman, here I come!
Wahlao! Just two days ago him and the President of his party were calling each other names.
Let’s face it. Politics is just the same as direct-selling or multilevel marketing. If you are good at selling, people will buy your ideas. There’s no point in pointing fingers and trying to tell people that the other person is no good. If what they say are true, then the people have chosen the wrong people during the last general election.
Although a big percentage of our body is water, we’re still land creatures that have the ability to venture into other worlds. The victim ventured into an area where the shark was, and probably still is, and like walking in the wild, you are a potential bite victim.
For the parents to not want the shark to be hunted an kill, is the right thing to do. We are always killing animals senselessly, destroying their habitat…we now know there are two compassionate human beings.
I salute them.
Okay, last December a surfer was killed by a Great White some 1km from where this present attack took place. According to local fishermen, there are lots of Bronze Whalers and Great Whites in that area.
Would you have dived this area?
The first time I dived Perhentian was in March 2005. Having heard of it from others so many times, it didn’t disappoint me, that I went back there again in July 2005. The divesites I’ve done there are D’Lagoon, Sharks Point, Vietnamese Wreck, Seabell Rock, Tokong Laut, Secret Reef, Terumbu Tiga, Tanjung Basi, Batu Nisan and Sugar Wreck.
I just hope to go back there soon. It’s a lot more peaceful than being in the office.
