ECL : LOL!! Oh yes, you really have to get well before going for diving. I was so panic that my mouth piece dropped off & I called for SOS to go up before coming down again. haha.. but that was my first experience mah !! :)

Mariuca said...

Wow Janice! I've never tried scuba diving, too scared but everything looks beautiful down under! :):):)

PS. NO fair! You have hubbs' pic up but still can't see his face mah! ;)

J@n!ce said...

Marzie : I think you will be scare cos we both belongs to those panicky type. It needs a lot of courage to go down there. I'm shaking all over you know.

Hubs requested not to show his face, so this is the best I could do. Sorry lady ;p

Hi Jan!

Wow! Nice waters. With all the fish around it's just like when I was in Maldives!

J@n!ce said...

Karen : Nah... maldives water should be clearer & cleaner. The water there was somehow getting milky after abou 10 mins into the water. My vision got blur & I cant see clearly underneath. Luckily those photos was taken before it got worst :) :)

Blur Ting said...

So cool!

J@n!ce said...

Blur Ting : Indeed, its cool & cold too :)

kegler747 said...

Wow! i love your pictures... I went scuba diving lessons before here in Puerto Galera, Philippines and I love to do it again. I'm not yet a certified diver but I want to maybe by next year. Hope you can try it here in the Philippines. You have 7,107 islands to choose from :)

J@n!ce said...

Carlo : I'm not an adventurous person. This diving trip was a BIG step for me into doing something adventurous. I am a timid person by nature. I don't think I dare to try it again although it is really enjoyable down there. I am very poor at the breathing co-ordination required below waters. I need a lot of assistance beside me... LOL :)

Wow! Scuba diving!!! Never tried before...i want i want...

Hmm...i can imagine how it feels like touching fishes! =)

J@n!ce said...

Nafa : I should try if you have the courage to do down. You will not regret. The ocean is really beautiful. With corals, fishes everywhere :)

The fishes are smooth to the touch, some bite my fingers thinking they are food... LOL....but they are not painful just a tweak of ants bite only :)

Roger said...

That must have been a blast :D

J@n!ce said...

Roger : Its an awesome experience :)

Health Freak Mommy said...

Ooooo... that was certainly an experience of a lifetime, awesome!

J@n!ce said...

Shireen : Beautiful scene !! :)

Judy said...

They are lovely photos. My friends have been asking me to do diving but I am not that brave.

I like to see photos of under the sea though but not be down under the sea myself! :P

J@n!ce said...

Judy : I'm actually like you too. This experience was really a ONCE in a lifetime to me as I don't think i will go down there again. I was on vacation with my hubs & really bite my teeth to go down so as not to spoil the mood & accompany him. I'm shivering all over. It was really beautiful down there :)

J@n!ce said...

YeeKit : Going down the ocean like that for some fun only & not the actual learning do not require to know how to swim. There are a total of 2 instructors & a cameramen to help in this whole expedition which last for about 15 mins. But of course you will pay for their assistance, equipment & other stuff like the boat... :)

Scuba diving! Nice... It feels really great to be in the sea with the fishes lor right? I remember the first time (and only time) I did it I was very nervous..lol.. keep telling myself not to cough or sneeze underwater, and to sorta blow air thru the ears to balance the pressure..lol... I really miss it..
