Hahahaa... Chinook... there are no words that can describe the feeling.. you'll need to experience it for yourself... out of this world... hehehe... how to know you in trouble?... when you are in a really small boat bobbing all over the place in a windy and choppy sea, and you have 15 people in front of you taking their own sweet time getting off the boat..!!!!.. hahahahaa....

hahaha... thanks raffidi for recommending me this site.. took me months to register though.. hehehe, i have not dived since Redang.. still recovering.. the meer thought of diving or the smell of the sea or even the exhaust fumes from a diesel engine will make my stomach turn.. still recovering i guess.. hehehee.

Ikan wadi... like what raffidi said.. it was a before, during and after experience... i suppose if the sea condition was favorable, maybe most ppl will only puke after the dive.. but both raffidi and me had the honour of getting the full package.. hehehe

finding grouper.... yeah the med does help a lot, but i still managed to puke after taking the med though... hehhee, but i've heard that some ppl get disorientated in the water after taking meds.. i'm not sure how true it is, but there's this one time i took a different brand of travelling sickness med which knocked me out entirely during a flight from Amsterdam to KL, i couldn't even get up to eat... took me another 24 hours to recover, that's one brand divers should not take.. or else you'll be visitng davy jones's locker.. hehehee

Hey Dan....I'm trying out "travel bands" next Monday at Tioman and will update you after that. It's suppose to press on some pressure points on the wrist. Read some reviews but will see if it works for me or not. Use it on a 30mins choppy boat trip recently and it seems to be effective but I want to test during my diving. Keeping my fingers crossed! And I never tried meds for I don't intend to sleep with the fishes...
Oh and Dan, I love Tioman....was there last month and this is a returning trip. Wanna join me?

Ha..haa...sounds funny too. When it comes to tht sick, it's really troublesome huh!  ;)
Anyway good..good! You still dont giving up even puke cause you upside down but you still carry on with this 'interesting world' (scuba diving). Thumbs up for you! Mostly when i heart tht those ppl with this kind of problem, they wont go anymore to the sea@boating as well. Try and search until you get a solution or at least minimize you 'mabuk laut'. Then you will enjoy more later.  :)

Raffidi... i've heard of those bands before, but never had the chance to try one out yet, do let me know if it works.. so that i can get 4 (for my hands and legs... to make sure no more puking.. hehehe), i heard tioman is nice and i would like to go there coz i heard you can do shore dives (perfect for pukers like me.. hehehe), when are you going again?.. if the timing and budget is right, i might just join you.. hehehe.... and another thing lay off the meds k?.. i still need a puking fren.. heheee

ikan wadi.... it is quite funny actually (especially when it happens to the other guy... hehehe) lying down on the deck praying to god to end it all.. hehehe, well i have no choice actually (paid good money for the certification) so like it or not have to carry on la.. anyway once you are in the sea it's all worth it.. the experience is awesome (beats going to aquaria hehehehee.....)

Will have to find a way to overcome the puking or at least learn to recover quickly.. but it'll be a shame to remove puking altogether.. coz that's the only chance i get to get "mabuk" percuma... hahahahahaha....
