DIVING WITH THE HANTU BLOGGERS!
Well, this blog is LOONNGGG overdue...but it's better late than never right? Ehehee....
On the 6th of Feb, Sunday, I had a sudden ITCHINESS to go diving. So I went along with the HANTU BLOGGERS
an email and after some trouble 'cos I lost my phone and was uncontactable, we finally managed to confirm this and that!
And I was on my way...to MY FIRST EVER OFFICIAL LEISURE DIVE IN SINGAPORE!!!!!!!! WOOOHOOOO!!!!!
There's a LOT of FIRSTS in these two dives that I made at Pulau Hantu with the Debster and the Seahounds!
time going so deep in Singapore waters: 21m.
gorgonian shrimp EVER:
And then my SECOND and THIRD one later in the day. In total, we saw FOUR gorgonian shrimps!
allied cowry EVER:
NICE! HEART STOPPING!! It was SOOOO TINY!
When I saw this fish, I thought it was a MORAY EEL. Turns out, it was even BETTER! It's a COMET! According to my videographer friend, if you see one of these fellows, you're really lucky! Amazing stuff at Hantu! And he can't wait to video it!
I also saw my FIRST
Dead...feather star (commatulid crinoid)...
Sigh... sad huh...
Well, I also saw this REALLY nice nudibranch! PRETTYYYYYYY AIN'T ITT.....
All in all it was a MAGNIFICENT DIVE! And what's better, 'cos the bloggers are so familiar with the area, it's like having EXTREMELY great guides with you who, for one, not only KNOW the reef, but also what and where the reef flora and fauna are.
It's not just the diving, but also the insight that the Hantu Bloggers can give you about Singapore's reefs (in particular Hantu's reefs) and about being an environmentally and ecologically aware diver (as all divers should be).
CHEERS, MAN! CHEERS TO GREAT DIVING! CHEERS TO PULAU HANTU! AND CHEERS TO THE HANTU BLOGGERS!
