Guys! Trust me...Sheila got photos of SpongeBob & Patrick in every imaginable positions! And not to forget the videos!!! They are a must watch...

On 2nd thought, we could have used the adjacent ice box...together with the ikan & icy cold water  :D

All in all it was a really fun trip. Wonderful company (but could be whacky at times, esp during the long SI  :) )

Well, this is what I scared most...

read below
==================

Divers carry pathogens in their wetsuits

Better hygiene could squelch transfer of disease to corals.

by Helen Pearson
Nature News

Scuba divers could inadvertently be carrying coral disease from one reef to another, say scientists who have shown that bugs stick to wetsuits like glue. But a quick rinse in disinfectant can stop the spread.
Around 60% of the world's corals are thought to be under threat from warming seas, overfishing, pollution and coral diseases. Researchers have wondered whether ocean-hopping divers are playing a part by shipping disease-causing bacteria from an infected spot to a pristine one.
Diver and microbiologist Kay Marano-Briggs of George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, decided to investigate. She and her colleagues snipped swatches of material from wetsuits and bathed them in dilute solutions of bacteria for 30 minutes, the length of a typical dive. They then looked to see how many bugs had stuck.
The bacteria latch onto the wetsuits, the researchers found. This was true for Serratia marcescens and Vibrio carchariae, which are both thought to cause types of coral disease.

Dirty diving

The human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus proved equally tenacious. The researchers studied it because of reports that surfers were passing around the bugs from shared wetsuits. "I wouldn't want it on me," Marano-Briggs says.
The team then tested whether divers were likely to transport these bacteria from one dive to the next. After a dive, most divers leave their gear to dry out or give it a brief rinse in fresh water, so Marano-Briggs and colleagues mimicked this.
Vibrio carchariae actually multiplied after one hour's drying — the time it might take to travel by boat between dive spots. Drying for 18 hours or washing in tap water removed some, but not all of the bugs: rinsing cut the levels of S. marcescens, for example, by about 75%.

full report taken from HERE

careful when putting things to Corals or do we have to? Please consider...
;)

Anyway its a good way of report writing....
