A Short Getaway.....

to Pulau Dayang for diving over the weekends. Went together with Cynthia (fellow Wildfilms crew) and her friends. And I discovered how small this world can be. It happened that one of her friends was a primary school mate of mine and another is my brother's platoon mate. A small world indeed.

Anyway, back to diving. It was dives with lots of finning (or maybe I am too used to the slow pace diving in local water) and not much chance to stop and wonder around to observe things (this is what I feel for someone who is more into macro stuffs). But overall, still enjoyable with great company of dive buddies.

So here's some pics that I have taken :



A giant Clam.



Fishy, Fishy, Fishy.



One of the many colourful Christmas Tree Worms.



Pretty Flatworm! I find it a bit mimic of the nudibranch, Discodoris boholiensis .

And this trip, I managed to see more slugs as compare to the previous trips here.



This is Chelidonura amoena. They seen to be in season and with some of them in mass orgy.



Some Phyllidia



Lots of Phyllodesmium briareum.


And this one which I am still ponder whether it is a Glossodoris sp or Hypselodoris sp. Anyone would like to help with the ID?

**UPDATE (29th May 07) : Finally found the ID of this nudi. It's neither a Glossodoris sp nor Hypselodoris sp. But it's from the same family of Chromodorididae. It's a Noumea crocea.

Last but not least, a Granular Sea Star (Choriaster granulatus)



It looks so huggable! :O)
