they said they have a place ready for the divers buuuuuut uh i always got panic when c lots of divers hanging their gears.
things can "mix up" pretty easy especially dark color gears.
just check the place out before storing it. If you see the place sorta like "accident can happen", better just bring ur gears to your room.

yeah lah on boat with 8 divers i already "lost" my mask....if dozens are around, how to find? or get a mesh bag and zip-tie the 2 tabs. dont let a happy outing turn sour...

i oso bought a white acrylic marker pen to mark my dive gear. if u see L and R on a pair of Jetfins...huh thats me. short term memory lah.

raffidi, myself and whole bunch of others will be at Semporna or else i will also jump in.

Sign up first, worry later...it would be cool if we had a number of MUWians at this event as well.

im sure some of them already signup. MUW have so many members. 95% of MUWians are silent members or MIA members :p
only 5% are the talkative ones

Thats right, gavstang. We signed up without even thinking about the leave application, flight booking etc. and deal with it later when we got the confirmation of being selected!  do hope we can meet as many as MUWians during the event.  If not of the mass dive in Semporna, me and Fish Hunter would have signed up for the whole 7-day feat.

I just got back to Malaysia and saw this watching TV and since I haven't masuk air for so long, just jumped to the opportunity. It's for a good cause anyway. I'll be doing the later dates though 9-13th (?)

It'll be good to meet up anyone from the forums...from what i can read I really gotta tag my gear kaw kaw then...

p/s : calling divers in kuching, roger roger me coz i baru balik and cari other fins to swim with :/

I just have a question regarding to the Astro Kasih Beautiful Malaysia registration...
What if I had did more than 20 dives however I didn't practice writing a single piece of log. Then how should I may able to submit my registration?

You're stuffed...thats why you should have kept a proper log book instead of being lazy and relying on your dive comp!

Sorry Jeff..in all honesty I dont know..why dont u contact the organisers to find out?

Jeff-K: Same here. All i did was snap a picture of my padi dive card as proof.

If i was the organizer i go for divers with Logbook.
Dont get me wrong but this thing is like a certificate of acknowledgement saying that you have done a few number of dives.
After every log, we request the DM or instructor to sign our logbook. Their licence no that precious to us.
Some dive centers accept by reading the Dive comp log, some need to see the logbook, some just dont care.
i reckon those divers that snap their dive card might as well be a EFR/DM/AI/I

The min. requirement is only 20 dives. Most AOW divers should qualify.

I don't think without a logbook is a big problem. Me myself don't log any dive anymore. (But for my case is different story.)
