Bali Endless Surprise Walk

Day 1 - 14th July 2012

We arrived at Bali's Air Port Denpasar about 12pm, and I found my name was write on a board with a man holding it. He is our driver Mr Isa. I deal with him over the internet about our 4 days schedule & pay for the car rental. It's a good price he offered, Rp 700,000 for 4 days (24 hours per day) divide by 4 of us

After we gather with Wai See (different flight with us who arrived at 2.30pm), we straight heading to Uluwatu Temple 

We need to pay the entry fees Rp 30,000

Here is famous with the sunset view & monkey >.<
And we scare monkey as its too crafty to us
They robbed peoples belonging and attack people sometimes

We decided to not stay for the sunset as the monkey is everywhere over there


To show our respect, we need to wear salong when we enter the temple
No short is allowed 
But how about the singlet?

Although the view is nice, weather is good, but we lost our patient to stay longer

What a coincident that I met an old friend in Bali
De Xing, my senior when I'm study Civil Engineering in Polytechnic Port Dickson (9 years ago)
What a small small world~

Dinner time: 1830 

Bali's have early night compare with Singapore & Malaysia. The sky are completely dark at 6.30pm. 
We had our dinner at Jimbaran Bay, which everyone highly recommended place


The weather was bad at our dinner time
Rain showering while we all have sat at outdoor table

But the food not bad, Rp 750,000 for 2 set meals (we shared as the portion is huge) 

Day 2 - 15th April 2012

We were suggested by the driver to visit this workshop for coffee

Finally I bought some coffee as souvenir for my colleagues

Satay on the street
Boss said they made only while customer need, so, I'm offer my help in order to get my satay

 The Royal Temple in Bali

 I do impressed by their paint

 We purposely came here for the sunset

Later we will go there, ok?

This place will face the high tide in 20mins later 
There is insecure on the edge of the walkway 

The sunset is began 

After the sunset, we are about to leave for our dinner 

Is here, the famous Pork Rib restaurant in town

Souvenir shopping time ^.^

Day 3 - 16th Apr Tulamben Wreak Ship Dive

My diving day today

It's a sea house there >.<

This is a real wreak ship, but, just along the shore of sea
I have no idea how its sank previously but it made the home for the corals & fish

I have been chasing this fish for a while, finally I took him a picture and realized that it's doesn't really look beautiful 

1st real stone fish in my life

Dive in Tioman

Over last weekend I joined a dive trip to Tioman Island (Malaysia) with my colleague Ivy

It's liveaboat journey, which mean we lived in the boat & visit every dive site with the same boat as well
We boarded at Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal on Friday evening 7pm and start our journey from Singapore straight to Tioman Island.

We stayed on boat 2 days & 2 nights. Half of the passenger on boat are having seasick during the dive trip, lucky, I'm not one of them ^o^
I'm quiet enjoyed the wobble 

After the welcome speech by the young South Africa's Dive Instructor, we been leaded to our own room
I stayed with Ivy and a diver named Jo
All rooms are incredible small

It does remind me a backpacker lodge's room

This is our's dive boat

Plenty of marine life in Tioman Island
They are all same as the residents on the land, darker skin color & tiny sizes

Don't close to the Sea Urchin, it's poisonous

I have been stopped for 1 dive after my 2nd dive in Renggis Reef as I caused myself nose bleeding 
This happened when I was force equalized when I'm down into the sea
I need to admit as I had stop diving after I get my dive license 2 years ago in NZ
I came for this boat dive as I need a refresh course before my Bali's dive in Tulemben at July next month
I have no idea to a force equalize can cause a nose bleeding until Marnus (Dive Master) told me that my new recovered from flu was the culprit of my nose bleeding

As nose link with ears and mouth, I had blood clot in my right eye and I swallowed some of the bloods from my nose

Nothing to worry since I knew what cause this happen to me and I will fully recover after a few days
It's just like a normal wound will recover by it's own

I have been stopped for 1 dive only and I continue to dive after 8 hours resting time
Well, it's still bleeding when every time I went up to the surface, but I don't care at all
As long as this sea have no kill shark, I'm safe for dive

Dessert after dive~

Renggis Reef, the dive site which I have my nose bleeding >.<

According to other divers, there's famous with rich marine life down here. Unfortunately, I has been stopped in the half way of dive T.T 
No fate with the creatures here~

This is our notice board for dive site information, located in our kitchen on the back cabin

I can't recognized myself with this taken photo
Don't worry, although the background is black, but I definitely not having a night dive
Probably was Ivy forget to press the flash

Wrong dive position slow down my speed and affected my buoyancy

Duncan, the Australian who taken the rescue course

The dive at Tiger Reef (which I have been banned for dive) wasn't a good dive for all of us. The surface current is too strong and without a good plan and well communication before the dive, no one actually enjoyed on this dive site

Some of us gather in the cabin for movie when night time, but most of them were still gather at the sundeck for chatting.
All latest movie they played in the mid cabin, I watched , , and
I have just a few glimpses on those mentioned movies, what you think?

Me and my dive gear at the dive deck~

I went to the front deck on last day (Sunday) as I have no movie in the cabin and felt not tired at all as we only have 2 dives on Sunday morning.

Total 5 dives for 2 days stayed on the boat, we came to the end of journey on Sunday night. I still need to back for work tomorrow early morning but I arrived at home on 12am after the trip T.T

Packing my holiday mood and restart my working spirit for my battle field tomorrow~
