Hi All,

Just got back from a quick soak in tioman (3D2N) during malaysia day... quick trip to soak my really dry fins..

here's some photos i took... not much, only did 4 dives.

and a video of the dive master feeding urchins to puffer fish... i do not condone this but there is mixed views about this action but lets leave that discussion elsewhere.

tioman is so full of urchin. I don't mind the DM feeding that urchin to the pufferfish. Lazy pufferfish!!! need to pointerfeed.

perhentian has much more urchins compared to tioman... i remember when i did my owd, my instructor purposely chose a spot with many urchins to "encourage us" to do our pivoting properly.. go down but control so it doesnt go too low...

my next trip is march 2014 to tioman... still a long way to go :( i long to wet my suit again. feel like a dried salted fish...

That guy treats girls differently. When I returned to perhentian to dive, I saw how he teached a group of female owd learners. He was so lenient on them :(
