SD... I dont think the trip will happen, after all Mr. Katak Pink have not reply & Mr. Plongeur are MIA.

Best is to organise it yourself with few of the Twin Tanks Diver in MUW, I think the last they did Twin's was during the course   :o ... which is LAST YEAR!!!!!! ... maybe should stick to the POOL first  :D

;D

Are you asking about Sipadan, Langkayan, Mabul, Kapalai, Roach Reef? Or are you asking about the wreck of the Repulse, PoW, Banka etc etc?

Either way,all those places you can use single tank. No Problem. For the wrecks, no tank also you can dive.

Something like that...like I wasn't the first Malaysian to jump off the KL Tower. But I was the first using a parachute. The rest just freefall.

No la..here it's not like in the US. In the US you get arrested for doing a BASE jump for two reasons: 1) illegal trespassing of a privately-owned building, and 2) not having a "cargo-drop permit" from the FAA.

Here, you can get arrested for illegal trespassing but the Department of Civil Aviation has no jurisdiction over activities that do not affect flight operations. For normal parachuting you need to apply for a NOTAM at least 2 weeks prior to the jump, but for BASE jumping, as long as you have explicit permission from the person in charge of the building, you can jump off the building as long as it's not for committing suicide. So when I jumped off the KL Tower, I wanted to be the first Malaysian to do a BASE jump. That was in conjunction with the 3rd anniversary of the KL Tower.

I've also jumped off the Menara Telekom (that tall tower they call REBUNG) off Jalan Pantai Baru with 5 other friends including an American. It was still under construction. We asked the guard for permission, took the lift/elevator and got to the helipad. This was at 2am.  We jumped off, avoided the high-tension pylon and landed right in front of the Pantai Police Station. At that time the flyover wasn't there yet.  Several policemen came to us and my American friend wanted to run away. But when the policemen told us how they enjoyed it and asked us to do it again, this friend of mine just got on his knees and cried. All he could say was," There is a God in heaven. In my country I would have been arrested already!" ;D ;D ;D
