In the end we did the TAR Park for two dives. Quite really when diving in the park I don’t expect much. Nonetheless I put down some 80 quid for a cheap underwater camera (really just a cheap camera with a case). It was so cheap it still uses negatives. I’ve yet to process the negatives, and in many ways afraid of processing them because they’ll show how I forgot how to use a manual film camera that requires winding after each shot. Read More »

Free interwebs in KLIA. Fantastic.

171 Unread items on my feed browser. Fantastic. Got my work cut out for me to read each and every item.

It has been interesting, visiting people, the grave, the temples, the friendly faces.

Now to go back home and create new memories.

Nice to be out of town and out of touch. I just wish the ASS FUCKERS BACK HOME would stop telling me what they’re doing every night. As if I don’t already know ba kan kima

I tried looking at a pair of matching shirts, but none come in the sizes I want. Ah well? Mind me while I go back to whatever I was doing here in KL.

Since I’m on a roll, I might as well explain the current plan. I’m planning on going diving with some others on the 30th of January. Thats what, the 5th day of Chinese New Year?

There should be 4 of us (any 5th or 6th person want in? Any random person that might be interested in diving with potential strangers? :P) heading off to Pulau Mengalum for two dives. Should be fun stuff, place is relatively untouched.

After that, we’ll have them drop us off on Pulau Manukan and stay there for a night. You know, chalet, barbecue, the works. Assuming we rented our own equipment and tanks and the place even has a compressor or some shit, I feel like I might be up for a shore dive there. Admittedly I have no idea what to expect there and the thought of lugging around the dive tank, and fins, isn’t exactly the most fun bit with regards to shore dives. Touch and go that. All else fails it’s a morning of frolicking on the beach.  I’m happy with that.

Should note, it is tentative, as I don’t know how much it’d cost exactly for them to drop our asses off at Manukan for the night. For the divers, it’s RM420 for the two dives. I’m assuming inclusive of gear and transport and other misc shit.  From then on it should be like even more extra once we factor in the cost of renting the chalet, park entrance fee, etc. Hence why we have the other crew who can’t dive but want to go to the island go to the island frolick and play at Manukan while we dive at Mengalum. They will help alleviate some of the costs, and hopefully bring the BBQ shit.

Then we have fun, have some eating, and hopefully it becomes an awesome trip. Like cap off my stay in town with a fucking bang. Of course, again this is all like, still planning. If I find out tomorrow that it becomes prohibitively expensive then fuck it, I just wanna dive.

The gist of why I have rarely if ever post anything while I’m back home, in list form; Read More »

So so so, my return to KK looks and feels like it’ll be a lot earlier than previous years. All goes well, I should be back within the first week of November. Fun stuff. It also means that should I need to go back by February I’ll have 3 months home, but if nothing bad happens I’ll only really need to go back in March, making my stay 4 whole months.

That means, I’ve got a bit of planning to do. I do plan on doing a bit of diving in Sipadan, but thats only if I can get a dive partner. And if weather permits.

Otherwise there’s the trip to KL. That’s a sure thing, it’s just a matter of when to go. There is also talk of visiting Penang this year. In all likeliness I’d have to shove that in with KL, and would require a whole lot more planning (if anyone else wants to tag along, how to get there, etc).

Sounds like fun. To think I’ll be back in under 3 months. Time flies rather quickly these years.

Lots of shit went down. I can’t be arsed to give a full chronological rundown of what went down; I do expect that along the way I will fully explain what went on and in all likeliness, unintentionally do it chronologically.

The gist of it is that Raimi and Gan popped into town, and we did what we could to show them a good time in Melbourne. Read More »

The more I do things unrelated to the internet, the more I realise how easy it is to live without it. How I live without this. Granted I will have many many more stories to tell after this round of adventures.

But when they go, what will I have to fill the void.

Somewhere along the way though, there will be a video of people playing Wii Sports. Because it was just hilarious watching them punch towards a tv.
