I never expected. You'd never expect. I exercised.

I went to East Coast Park to run on Saturday night.

Then i grabbed my laptop/wallet from the car,
Sat myself at McDonald's and enjoy a relaxed salad dinner,
Watched 2 episodes of Battlestar Galactica,

Scuba Dive Pulau Aur, 22-24 Aug 08

Would you skip/postpone diving just 'cos it's the 7th month in the Lunar calender? For these divers... "no way!"

On every weekend this month there were few divers but those who went diving certainly enjoyed it loads! Just take a peek at the happy divers in these photos from my last weekend up to Pulau Aur...

Bumphead Parrotfish galore this weekend; 6 Bumpheads on 3 divesZebra Lionfish galore too; 3 this weekend

Dive LOB MV White Manta, 15-17 Aug 08

Not even 4 minutes into our last dive of the weekend, while descending towards Pinnacle 1 at Pulau Aur, i look up and sight a shark-like silhouette. I sound the horn 'cos a shark had not yet been seen on this trip and i thought the others might be interested... then i look up again and "WHOA...! Isn't that... a.... WHALE SHARK?!"

My very first Whale Shark sighting! She was at least 10-15m long! The graceful sweeps of her tail propelled it so elegantly through the water with dozens of Remoras (and an unidentified fish) in company...

45 minutes of Whale Shark company!

Oh... and i was stung by a Lion'sMane Jellyfish (wrapped its extremely long tentacles around my legs) but the pain and irritation of the sting paled in comparison to the Whale Shark experience!
