Sunny Days At Last?.....

The Sun finally revealed its face over the weekends after a week of downpours. :O)

I was so worried that I am going to miss my guiding and intertidal trip with all these rains.

Anyway, with the sunny weather again, went for my first Chek Jawa guiding for this year on Saturday. Managed to see quite a number of stuffs such as Biscuit Sea Star, a big Brittle star and Horseshoe crab. And guess what? I bumped into my Open Water dive buddy during the guided walk. I was bringing my group to the coral rubble when someone called out to me and asked if I remember him. I was happy to see him again but because I was guiding, I did not catch up with him much.(Mmmmm...wondering if it was all the talking about Chek Jawa to him during our course that made him come to visit CJ?) :O)

Unfortunately, the day did not end happily for me as Man Utd LOST 3-1 and to Man City some more! :O( (Alex, the team needs a GOOD defensive midfielder and Darren Fletcher is not the answer.)

The next day was Wildfilms trip to Sentosa. Initial plan was to Pulau Hantu but due to the low signup of crews, we decided to switch to Sentosa. We had a small drizzle at first but the sky eventually cleared up. It was a sea slug day for us where we got nudibranchs in term of phidiana militaris, jorunna funebris, discodoris boholensis, gymnodoris sp and armina sp. There were also lots and lots of other leaf slugs on the seaweeds. And I did not bring my camera!!! Too bad then.

Just hope that the sunny weather will continue. Next trip will be to one of my favourite islands, Pulau Sekudu on Chinese New Year day. :o)

You may want to come and see for yourself. As one person's liking may not be someone else.

And you have done the right thing of not going to CJ when you are not feeling well.:O)
