Of all the villages in Tioman, we resided in Tekek, a minute one but yet the most civilised one. Choosing to stay over there isn’t merely coz of the its development of course, but to realise my 3 years steadfast dream to –be a diver, before i graduate. 

Tekek is one of the villages tat provides most diving activities by few of the diving centres located at around that area. Its a 4 days 3 nites course by Tioman Dive Centre  affliated under PADI(Professional Association of Diving Instructor).

We stayed in Babura Seaview Resort which located just a stone throw away from Tioman Dive Centre, but there’s one more adjacent to it which is Swiss Cottage which located a stone blow away from it. Babura offered us a more economy price than the latter.

For the 4 days, we were attached to Tioman Dive Centre, a small cottage, well i didn expect tat to be tat small, operated mostly by Caucasians who believed in their quality they provied more than the price. Well, i wouldn’t disagree.

IMG_5082aIMG_5080aI wouldn’t ever forget this place, the birth of my passion for diving. Orange shirt guy is Gordie btw..posing..

The 4 days, me n Christina were packed with the schedules to complete the course while TekJee and Gordon were there for their leisure dives. We filled our days there upmost important to stay away from our books by doing filling ourselves not only with diving but some other leisure activites. I’ll let the pics to do more elaboration.

Just like driving lessons, we kicked off our course with listening to the theoretical lessons..which bored me to death. It reminds me of the CSU videos very much..

While me n Christina were suffering from the boredom, the other 2 guys seems to be in extreme joy and fun with with diving and…hehe eh hem hem, mind me to introduce our new friends majoring in marine science from UKM doing their electives for 2 months, on the left Keat, and right from up to bottom Rachel, Alice Siew Ling, and Michelle ( mind me if there’s mistakes with spelling).

One of the night view of the Marina Bay…Where we met someone interesting.

IMG_5272a

His name is Leo, and he’s been sailing since 2007 after his retirement from NewZealand.  His first catch comes to us when we were asking him where’s he from..He answered, “I’m from this ship”..He’s been practically staying on his ship for the past 2 years doing what he is passionat about – sailing. He shared loads of interesting stories with us and as youngster, he really opened our eyes to the world.

One of members, Giddy Buttock Gordie Pang unfortunately sliped down gracefully on one of the stairs during fishing, fortunately he doesnt go for another skin diving. Gotta dressed up in Klinik Kesihatan. Latest update, he is as fit as fiddle, diving as swift as dolphine underwater. Cool..cool..lol

About yenwee

There's nothing much i can bout myself, coz i think i've known myself much to the depth that i love myself more than anyone. hehe. Feel free to log into my previous blog which can be linked from here at 'My previous one' under He/She Blogs Too. In addition to those bla bla bla bout myself, i think now i've grown more ripe by age. World today seems to be more of making decision of either good or not that good. I cud felt that i'm nearer to what i want to achieve. Its jus bout few steps away from now before i reached that point..
