My Water Moments

Do you have a Water Moments? The moment where you really indulge yourself in water and have fun? Well I do.

My Water Moments are during my first actual diving experience. It was 2 years ago in Pualau Tenggol, Terengganu during my Open Water Diving (OWD) test before I can get the actual license.

Anxious, thrilled, nervous, are the three words to describe my feelings as we gathered at the Jetty in Dungun on that beautiful morning. There were six new students (including me) who are scheduled to do our OWD test. Our 4D3N trip was joined by 12 other certified divers.

We reached Tenggol around 11am after a long 1 and half hour journey by boat. After listening to the briefing by the resort operator, checked in and had our scrumptious lunch we quickly kit up and get ready for our first dive!

Being the underwater “virgin”, we failed to adjust our buoyancy accordingly and most of the time lost our control and fin our way clumsily. As a result, we successfully created, "the underwater sand storm". Most of our time spent underwater filled with the attempt to find the right buoyancy.

That's me (in white shirt)! getting my gear ready for the next dive :)

The OWD test is carried out on our 8 dives!We were required to do mouth piece & mask clearing, buddy breathing, ditch & don, as well as buoyancy control. Although we were quite nervous, but all the long hours spent in the pool with thorough training really pays! We made it…

Since that was our first experiece diving, naturally we want to TAKE A PICTURE! But since non of us (the new diver) have a water proof camera, we have to take turn take pictures.. so there were not even a single picture of all 6 of us in the water :(

The photos could have been better if I had a water-proof camera like the Sony TX5. We would be able to capture a few precious moments in the water together.

Do you notice that most of the pictures (all of it actually) were taken from the boat? How I wish we had a camera that I can carry down to the water and take a better pictures.

Since I really-really enjoy water sports like diving & snorkeling, I really wish to have a water proof camera.

Here is what on top of my wish list. Cyber-shot TX5 by SONY. The features of the camera are so impressive.
