Redang Kalong 6th May - 8th May 2010

the dive trip that i have been waiting for. it has been postponed a few times... at last... it materialized! our journey started at 10.30pm. 1 hour delay from the original plan. 3 cars convoyed to kuala merang. amazing, it took us only 5 hours from gombak to kt.... can you imagine that?? :P i was in the car with SA and Sam. tried to sleep but cant really sleep... biasa lah.. long journey.. reached kuala merang just after subuh azan. we stopped at the mosque for prayer, and slept for a while. had breakfast near the jetty. i really enjoyed this trip. it was different. there were 12 of us... i get to know new people :) and .. jeng jeng jeng... i get to use nikon d60 the whole trip. hehehe :D jakun :P breakfast was like ice breaking session. though some of us still shy shy cat :)
our boat scheduled at 10am.. i think.. cant really remember lah. and since breakfast, i was the assigned paparazi :) best giler.. the few pictures, i was still struggling with the camera.. and i became better along the way :) i am not a pro, so dont expect pro pics la kan... i just snap :P ahaksss... but then again... just enjoy lah. 

6th may 2010: 1st dive was at 11.30am. as usual, it was tough for the 1st dive.. my left ear hurts so bad.. ouch.. :'(  didnt enjoy it.. maybe i was still tired from the journey. next dive was supposed to be at 300pm... LS and i, dived... in bed! hahahah :D we were too tired. our night dive was changed to the next day.

7th may 2010: 1st dive was at 8.30am... just took a piece of nugget for breakfast. saved maggi goreng and tomyam for after dive. i dont really wanna eat that much, and i dont want to dive with empty stomach - so that explains the 1 piece of nugget :P the dive was okay... was starving when we got out.... i rushed for my maggi and tomyam soup. shared with sam and LS. 

next dive at 11.30am.. enjoyed the dive... but my buddy vomited on the boat after the dive.. alamak!!  kesian dia... he doesnt look that well after that.. :( could be because he dived with empty stomach and stuffed himself with the food... angin la kut.. and with the pressure and all... there goes... :O

lepak for a while.. had lunch and got ready for our 3.00pm dive. then.... night dive.. at 7.00pm. was i afraid? yes.. :P... was i nervous? you bet!! but after the 3rd dive for the day.. i was excited for the night dive. and guess what?? i really had fun!!! enjoyed it very much - and i wasnt scarred :) it wasnt like the first night dive that i did last year. baby sharks!!! more than 5 of them were swimming by the beach. didnt take their pictures because i was getting ready for night dive.

this trip, we dived min 50 mins up to 60 mins..!! not bad huh.. ;) we are getting better! that night, SA, LS, Sam, AZ and i lepak at the jetty... there were loads of stars.... beautiful!! amazing!!

my review on redang kalong, i would give them 4 star. room was clean and nice. food was okay for me, not excellent (for me) but acceptable. the kitchen crew were sweet and wonderful. the rest of the resort crew were very friendly :) beach was nice and clean.. thumbs up for sharon, ab, michael (for helping me) & the rest :)

Day 10 - warded

today marks the 10 day i am being warded at the hospital. i don't know if this has got anything to do with my incident back in maldives in january but what i know i have vulnerable lungs at this point of time. although i tried so hard not to get myself sick, somehow the environment is not helping people like me. or was it work stress? or too much thinking of what is next life has for me? i know for sure it is somewhat about AH. hmmm too much on that. i should deviate my focus on other things - things that we/i are more certain and i can control of. 
i should just get back on track on getting really healthy. really try to do something else to distract my frustration on not having be able to do the usual exercise that uses my strength so much. so, right now, definitely no weight training, no full zumba teaching, no swimming hmm what is left? yoga?? i really need to get the time with maria.  
as i am writing this now, i just had my minor procedure to jab steroid on my right ribs for…

Shellambak @ HangOut Bukit Antarabangsa

it started when i got the advertisement on my newsfeed. memang dah lama teringin nak makan shellout ni tapi kalau nak pergi kat Enjoys Desa Melawati sure kena beratur. and dari lapar nanti jadi kenyang and lapar balik. so, i decided to ajak my zumba sisters if they wanna try this new place found called Shellambak. and of course i bring my prince along although he was upset for awhile when he knew my zumba sisters are coming. i dont know why lah. sedangkan dia pun ajak kawan dia. aparaa..
and so, yeahh i also saw the short video clip about this Shelllambak.. sila cari di fb ye.
date of visit: 27 Jan 2018
location: Hang Out, Bukit Antarabangsa. [Cabin Style next to Petronas Gas Station] Tel: 0183636726
place & decor: simple and nice ~ relaxing for lepak. it's like food truck environment but better seats, but perhaps not wheelchair friendly so much due to the steep way up.
cleanliness: 9 out of 10. [for the whole area]
restaurant service: friendly chef, reasonable waiting time.

Tragedy 28 Jan 2019

what is with 28th of the month? this morning on March 3rd, 2019 when i woke up, i realized something scary. i was admitted 'again' to the hospital on 28 Feb 2019, just 1 month after i was admitted at the hospital in Maldives on 28 Jan 2019. yes, twice in 2 months and on the same date? what a coincidence.  how do i start? it happened on the 2nd day of my dive trip, and on the 2nd dive. it was just like any other dives. i wanted to have a separate posting on this incident in maldives. but as the time goes by, i get quite tired of irresponsible people who spread stories about my condition after the incident. 28 Jan 2019: happened on the 3rd day in maldives and 2nd dive for the day. 2nd dive site was at Miyaru Kandu, one of the most famous dive spots close to Alimatha Village in Felidhoo Atoll, Maldives, a great place where you can observe big pelagic fish. In fact “Miyaru” is the Dhihevi name for “shark”, so it is of no surprise that Miyaru Kandu is a great dive spot for catchin…
