A New Hobby

Having grown bored of the land, it's only natural that I feel the itch to explore the world below.

I am picking up a new sport - scuba diving.

Having passed off wonderful diving spots like Similan Island in Thailand last year because I didn't have a license, I've decided enough is enough.

Five days with Kuching Scuba Centre, RM950 and some layers of sunburnt skin later, I am now a proud certified PADI open water diver.

Getting a dive license means a lot of thing. First and foremost, it means I can now insert a long hard tube into my mouth all day long without feeling gay about it.

I found Nemo!

Unregistered

You have been really busy, dont you?

I started to wonder if you have teeth, Kenny. Smile is not bright enough without those lil white teeth... Your smile is always somehow cunning-looking to me... like "ah i hate to pose to the camera but i had to..." and guess you've figured out your "camera angle" hahah..

Unregistered

Unregistered

Better see those reefs before they're all gone mate. You can email me if you want to know all the best dive sites in Asia and the world.

Don't worry me not a dive operator!

Unregistered

Scuba diving is an awesome sport. Haha, PADI diver, my instructor says that PADI stands for "Put another dollar in", while NAUI (Which I am certified under) is commonly known as "Not another underwater idiot" :P

P.S. You don't insert a long hard tube into your mouth. At least not directly! :P

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

http://www.oceanxplorer.com.my/

check out this site. maybe you can dive with them once

Unregistered

Kenny,

since you got alot of fan that dives too, u should organise a dive trip with all of us meh. It always fun to go in a group to lepak and chase shark!! to snap pic lar not for their fins..Go take your advance before going to sipadan. If not, it will be a waste as you can't go for any deep dive or night dive..

p.s. behind neme(clown fish) is sea urchin. you should avoid this damn sea rambutan at all cost as it irrated yur skin kau2..

Unregistered


iSn't Nemo suppose to have a 'lucky fin'

Unregistered

dude, u made me wanna scuba dive...

Unregistered

What underwater camera or underwater casing did you use to take those underwater shots?

Unregistered

hey Kenny... cool hobby dude!

Unregistered

I heard Lombok Island and Manado Island in Indonesia is nice for diving. I am not into it though I really wanna see the scenery down there. I am just too afraid of the sea.

Unregistered

oh my goodness..! Scuba diving is so damn cool!!

Unregistered

ha~ diving indeed is a very very nice sport~

and ur bday is one day b4 mine!! hahaha

Unregistered

haha..typical kennysia entry..yaloh, kenny, why your boss so kind hah? you seem to be getting lots of leave leh..

Unregistered

Cool!! I am also a certified scuba diver. :)

Haven't dived for a long time already though.

Unregistered

Hey Kenny, just noticed something strange on your cert. Why does it have icons for M and F??? I hope your dive instructor is not illiterate!!

Unregistered

Kenny some fucker locked me out of the chat box...pmc

Unregistered

OMG, Kenny is younger than me!

Unregistered

looks like you've been going non stop kenny !

Unregistered

i didnt know that nemo was so dark wan leh
are you going to have him for dinner ?
i heard he taste nice in sweet and sour sauce . .
yum yum...

Unregistered

thats not nemo..nemo is a Clownfish, and the one u took is a tomato fish. anyway,its kwel~

Unregistered

wow! scuba diving is love! =D

Registered

yeah.. you should take up more sports that involves being in the water...

that way you won't be so concious that you're fat... and it gives your back a break too.. supporting all that weight in a day takes its toll...

LOL

Unregistered

Nemo~! I love it too`! But too bad its too difficult to keep as a pet as it is a marine fish. Any easy tip to have such fishes, anyone? =)

Unregistered

Kenny, how come u like hv so much time on ur hands and so much money? Can go here, go there. Do this, do that. Buy this, buy that. As we all know, u're working IT Manager, rite? Can be away from ur work so often ah?

Unregistered

aiyo, that isnt Nemo lah... i mean that isnt a clown fish also.. u need to take up another course. "Underwater species 101" hahahah

Unregistered

Unregistered

That's not Nemo. Nemo has more than one white stripe

Unregistered

Planning to take up advance diver license!

Registered
