Wayne's Birthday Party!

IMG_4999 - 1st photo

*Photo Intensive post! =P*

It was our good friend, Wayne’s 30th birthday and his wife threw him a surprise birthday party! So she chartered a boat for a day and invited us to celebrate with them. It was a great way to spend an afternoon and everything was prefect, from the boat to the food to the company. I’ll let the pictures do the talking! =)

Yummy Food in Tioman

tioman3

Hello!

Had another short break in Tioman AGAIN! Went back there to log more dives & eat the SATAY!!!! Love the satay there! It’s succulent, juicy & has the right amout of sweetness to it.

tioman1

tioman2

So far this satay is my all time favourite!

Rating: 9/10 (-1 because of the few plates we had over the few nights there one plate was not as soft & juicy)

tioman5

The other thing that I missed so so much in Tioman was it’s Sambal Stingray. The stingray is delivered fresh daily to the BBQ seafood place and it always comes, soft and slightly burnt with no fishy smell cos it’s so fresh!

Rating: 8/10

Ok, the main reason we went back to Tioman is to dive but I was sooooo craving to eat the food I had the last time. 😛

This time we tried a new item on the menu – Otah. This Otah is a speciality from Muah and I loved it!

tioman8

Sorry for the bad photo but it’s the only one I have of the Otah. It tastes a lot better than the photo! heh…

Rating: 8/10

Tho’ I don’t drink beer because I’m allergic to it, I thought this sign looks damn retro!

tioman7

Caught this beautiful sunset in Tioman.

And that’s just me strolling on the beach after a day of diving! Dived a total of 9 times over 2.5 days there! So Happy!

BTW, all these yummy food is at Paya Beach Resort, Tioman. It’s cheap & good!

XOXO

Hello!

I recently took the plunge and learnt how to dive! Finished up my open water in Tioman and continued on to dive there for 2 more days – it was great fun! I’ve always wanted to be close to nature and marine life, this is something that captivated me since I was a kid watching Discovery Channel programs on TV12. Now with cable TV, I’ve progressed to Animal Planet, Dicovery Channel, Nat Geo Wild, History Channel etc. My facination with the world and it’s inhabitants and outer space always kept me wondering how all these things came about and adapted through time. (I’m a true Science student!) I guess if Singapore has Veterinary Studies as a degree I would’ve aimed to graduate in that field. But knowing that it is only available overseas and it will be a financial burden to my parents I never really toyed with that idea. Guess diving is a good alternative for me now!

I saw plenty of interesting life forms underwater like Nudibranch, weird looking sea cucumbers, broadclub cuttlefish (which are really big! about 50cm!), hawksbill turtle, black tip reef shark, pufferfish etc. Previously, I satisfied my curiousity for marine creatures through aquariums, but now I’m able to be “inside” a natural aquarium! And we have a whole ocean to explore it. I can’t wait to dive in other places but for now enjoy what I took underwater.

XOXO

Our dive instructor – Funny. She’s a Japanese lady but she can speak Japanese, English, Cantonese, Malay very fluently! Simply amazing! I was shocked when she picked up her handphone and conversed in Cantonese throughout!

Hello everyone!

Here’s the spread Nat & I took in Club Med Bali & had a ball of a time there. Shooting is always fun and working it overseas is an added benefit! It’s a very different feel from the previous spread I did and I really like this one too… I’m glad we were given the opportunity to do this shoot together.  Do U think we can look like a newly wed couple? 😛

XOXO

Jessica

Thought this is a very interesting statue at the Ruins… Hmmm… I wonder why it’s there and why she’s posing like this! 😛
