Dear jikass, actually no special reasons lah...cos here they provide accomodation...at fremantle...im not sure. its not stated in their website. maybe you can ask Taufik in this forum? he just came back few months ago...

regarding the medical, i went back to Miri(my home town) to do it...Dr Cheu. I live in KL, but im not sure if there is any doctors recognized by ADAS. i HEard there is one in ipoh...and another one in labuan...dr. daud...perhaps you can mail the diver training centres to ask for current recognized drs in malaysia? i did that also too

cheers

I got my list of ADAS panel doctor list in Malaysia from ADAS, it only mentioned the one in Miri, Ipoh and labuan... and closest not in Malaysia is in Singapore.. but since I am from miri too.. i did mine with dr Cheiu..

TUTC lagi best esp the january class.. it's not that cold... and instructor is alright.. they take their time teaching u, tak kalam kabut, and accomodation also provided. cuma kena kerja keras to get ur ticket jer.. yg malas2 depa sure tendang.. in our class alone ader 3 orang kena sepak keluar.. 2 malas nak blajar, and satu lagi buat rescue dive kalam kabut until sendiri pun injured dier nyer ear drum.. tak boleh equalize.. nasib bukanj org malaysia..

Dear Zircon, since I became a CD, I went to many Clinics for my medical checkups in a year. What can I suggesting to u all hah, get ur Hyperbaric Med approved by IMCA i.e Flinders Hyperbaric in Spore, then u have to take another Medical C/Up for Offshore Med approved panel for Petronas, then it will be easier for u to apply Smart Card through Divin Companies..........then "campakle ur CV to Dive Com".............GD Luck

Hopefully we could finish our class before our visa run out zircon... am afraid the shipped us via cargo plane pulak.. hahahaha! but looking at the lack of instructors that we are facing now.. either we extend until night or shorten the bottom time and maximize our surface intervals for repet dive.. kan?

Ok lah.. i see you outside i want to grow some cancer cell first... adios!
