My 2016 Dive Diary

Nothing special for the year. I still couldn't achieve more than 2 dive trips for a year. The same usual group we had, except there was one impromptu trip we went off Tenggol island along with a wedding we attended in Kerteh.

April 2016 - Tenggol Island

4 pax trip. Small yet enjoyable company. Our intention was to attend a colleague's daughter wedding in Kerteh. It was my very first Malay wedding ceremony I have attended in my life. It was meaningful, and we enjoyed the food and journey to the East.

Tasty food served
After the ceremony, we drove to Dungun for our 1 night homestay before heading into Tenggol island the very next day. Upon checked in our stay, which is situated above shoplots, we headed off for tea time.

We brought along picnic mat for our beach stay. We had a spectacular afternoon over at Pantai Teluk Lipat The sky were blue and there was huge kites and balloons seller at the beach.

That's me and angry birds
Our 2D1N dive trip at Tenggol Coral Beach Resort. Stay and dive was pleasant, we had much fun except for the fact we had got salty drinking water served. Quad shared room was not bad, except for the compressor sound over the afternoon. At night was alright.

I didn't bring my GoPro underwater over this trip. Since it was just a 2 dives trip. It was leisure, diving was pleasant as we didn't hit to those strong current sites.

Our journey off Dungun while on the way returning home, we needed detour Kuantan for another friend's flight down to Kiasuland. With such opportunity (which was rare), we had our food exploration in Kuantan itself. I brought them to otak-otak and Satar place at Tg. Lumpur, as well as Hai Peng (Kuantan) Kopitiam for iced coffee!

May 2016 - Perhentian Island Bubbles Annual Trip 

Bubbles Dive Resort

Being an annual trip means we have been to the resort for than 2 times! It's now in our annual group trip with new discovery! We are all certified as PADI Nitrox Diver! yay! I couldn't remember our maximum dive altitude, but definitely more than 25Meters. It was a great experience, couldn't believe it affected one of our friend most, who went super "energetic" after the last dive!

Believe the group may have another "enhancement" in dive experience this year, 2017! *finger crossed*
