Pulau Sipadan Part 1

~ This blog was migrated from my old site ~

This wasn't the 1st time, but it was different from previous trip. we din go to the island on the same day. instead, we stayed at the jetty area, which the resort is similar concept like PD Avilion i.e. water chalet wit "open" bath room... but it is way better than Avilion, at least the water is not milo color...

Anyhow, if u happen to stay thr in the future, b prepared to get out to hv your own bfast... the included bfast is only roti bakar + kopi, which is nice to me but quantity only can cover my throat, stomach still empty...

Dun say i bluff u, talk cock bull shit, we saw manta ray (in case u dunno wat is manta, click here) at jetty, even b4 we dive!!! but we were not excited, instead damn tulan (angry) wit what we saw! look at photos below, taken when out for bfast:

Kanneh, jin yausiu (vulgary~)... those were illegal fishing!! Not 1 manta, but tens of them!!! Our powerful dive instructor was veli upset n would do something (o oledie did something) to report this, she got "connection" to some authority. Just wonder how effective those authority bosses would take action... u'd know la, this is msia, the bulleh land, not anywhr else in the world...

Anyway, it's just the begininng of the trip, so we tend to forget it... let's back to the trip.. we got a warmth welcome by the boss at the resort, we dun even need to carry our bags to the jetty, got a VVVVIP svc tat the boss ride the boat rite in front of the resort to pick us up, thumb up!!

Arrived at the platform ~11+am... n immediately got our chk out dive (o orientation dive) underneath the platform... yoohoo~

This was also the 1st time I took photo underwater, hope to see improvement in 4 days time...
