Tioman..tioman..
Hmm.. it was undeniably a last ditch trip.. since it was unplanned, November is approaching and east coast waters is having monsoon already.

At one of our teh tarik session earlier, Sheik and Snafu made the suggestion, which I thought was a joke of course thinking about the season. But somehow the topic went serious and at one point sheik said we should just do it, ‘last kopek’ thing .
I like the idea but didn’t give a yes first. Called my-all-time buddy, Mr HoleMaster to get him on the boat as well but due to some prior engagement he cant make it. Next time buddy! Then after thinking and more thinking, I decided to join the last kopek trip after all…

Departed for Mersing on Thursday eve (2/11). Me, Sheik, Snafu and Bubblebunny. We chose Rocky Backpackers to overnite. The place is very cheap and clean too. Cost us RM10 pre pax per night. Seademon, Nazadel and Leafbug arrived later to join us.

Early Friday morning (3/11) we took the first boat and head to Kampung Tekek. I could feel my excitement grows we approached Tioman. The clear calm waters…an awesome anticipated view. We were fetched by Tioman Reed Dive staff at Tekek jetty and went straight to Babura Resort (the long house type) to prepare for our dives.
 
Day 1 dive summary :
1st dive           Tiger reef. I can say that this is a warming up dive for me, after so long in dry land…hehehe. Vis was just ok,     between 8 -15m. Depth max 21m.

2nd dive          Pirate reef, OK

3rd dive           Soyak reef, OK.

Day 2 dive summary :  
We had 2 more divers who joined us, Deepblu(Izwa) & Derrick(Spazm)
1st dive            Sawadee wreck, awesome dive

2nd dive           Labas ,OK

3rd dive            Golden reef, first time there but gud dive site. The vis was quite poor but it’s a good dive site.
 
Hmm.. overall,
Dive centre
TIOMAN REEF DIVERS – staff very friendly, excellent service and clean too. Hot drink available foc after each dive. Can check them out, http://www.tiomanreefdivers.com/
Divers - Myself, Sheik, Snafu, Bubblebunny, Seademon, Nadzimkecik( Nazadel), Leafbug, Deepblu & Derrick
Cool crowd … thanks guys  :)

One lesson I learnt while at Sawadee Wreck is I have to be more conscious and self discipline. Special thanks to  Snafu :)
Sorry la bro u had to bear with me-gua otak lembab sikit dan cepat gelabah!  :P
I just realize there is more and more to learn of diving stuffs and I am up for it.  ::)

Errrrr.. it was Sheik's idea, not me, I just follow.

Bro.....U got talent as a writer, do write more.

As for Sawadee wreck or any dive site... we need to have self discipline & awareness, let us all be a safe diver & learn from eachother.

DIVE MORE TALK LESS
