Jahat,Pemanggil,Aur,Dayang,Seri Buat - Live-On-Board (Part 1)-Finale

Today, I decided to continue write on my last trip after I've made thru the toughest part of my days last week. So, here you go..

Saturday (9th Sept)
I woke up that morning and I felt seasick; dizzy, stomach-ache, feels like to puke. What an annoying feeling on the fascinating-day-trip like this one and yet I missed my dawn dive on the early bird. But it's ok, sleeping much better. Huhu

My Sifu asked to do deep dive this time, we would be going into 30 meters heart beats like a drum does whenever heard of the depth..hehe! Well, I was anxious but not panic. First time try?! Anyone? Sure you can..30 meters just about the same as 5 meters won't feel a bit different except you will run out of air quickly than usual. But some of divers will suspect narcosis in that depth, you'll feel high like as high as you smoke joint. That's why during Advance Course (Herein after will be called AOW), you'll be going down 30 meters and need to write down your name and IC number on the given board. Just to make sure you still thinking normally. Scared? Don't be..diving is fun.

Such pain in the arse, I suddenly have to went up during descend at 8 meters depth. Just about 1 minute underwater my headache was not gone yet. What a great miss at Pinnacle One, Pulau Aur. I was told that was the best dive site even 30 meters depth you can even see way up to the surface, a school of yellow-tail-barracudas and every kind off marine life, you name it! Poor me. Soon I'll be there again someday. Wait for me Pinnacle One.

After others had completed their surface interval, down we went again at Captain's Point dive site, Pulau Dayang. This time I had made sure I am perfectly ready for the dive as I am going to do my navigation underwater as partial of the AOW course portion. Just took a few minutes to complete then we continue our tour until we had to bump into other group of divers. I think they are Singaporeans coming to dive at Aur. Macam pasar malam tuhh, just like underwater party. I was enjoyed the dive like nobody's business.

On the night they were down again around Aur as the boat sailed for awhile. I wasn't coming due to limited torch-light. Darn, next trip I will definitely buy one for my own. There were two other boats sailed at the same area as our boat did. They were night-diving as well. As for the Perampok, they must let other boats make their way first before going merampok underwater, that's the rule they have to follow. That was all for the night session. Nothing more interesting except chatting on the top of the boat while the boat made its way to Pulau Seri Buat, slightly down under Tioman towards Tanjung Gemuk where I was doing my last dive there.

Life is a fair game..but you play it unfair! (Part 3) - Finale

Early this morning I finally finished my be exact at 4.30am. I was sleeping during the job done,hehe! Let's see the fact below:

20th Sept, I arrived at office 10mins before 8am. From this time thereon, the only I did was working until early this morning at 4.30am.
  • Lunch, once on 20th Sept (one hour)
  • Sleep (6 hours), 4 hours from that was this morning while waiting the job finish. So, the night before, I slept only 2 hours.
  • Way to office and home during this duration (total of another one hour)
  • Toilets, Smoking, snack break, pray, etc (maybe 2 hours top)
Total of the above is 10 hours and total of my non-stop working duration was 44 hours and 20 minutes (for one job). 44 minus 10 is 34..OMG, I was working non-stop for 34 hours and 20mins. My name should be recorded in Malaysia Book of Record for 'The Longest non-stop Working hours'. What a job!!

Life is a fair game..but you play it unfair! (Part 2)

Darn..Today I am working all day long, almost 24 hours now. I woke up yesterday at 6.45am, get ready and straight to work. Arrived at office 10 minutes before 8am. And now 4am in the morning but I am still doing the same works from yesterday.

I sleep a while at 2.20am just now until Hisham wake me up at 10 minutes past 3. What a day! Yet the works still not finish as I expected. Problems and problems keep coming on and on. Hope this nightmare will over by today. Should start to find another works now...I think I should! or shouldn't I?

Life is a fair game..but you play it unfair! (Part 1)

I'm not in the mood to continue my writing on my last LOB trip.

I’m sucked big time now..I should begin to find another place to works. Here definitely not for me anymore. Shit..this time it makes me uncomfortable really bad..I can't think normally, I can't eat satisfied-ly, I can't even breath. Oh god, please help this naive person YOU sent to earth. Maybe this is the punishment YOU early-judged to me for all of my sins I have done so far. If that so, please forgive me! I'm your humble servant seeks forgiveness for the bad deeds done.

I know, I did a lot of sins during my works salary always didn't go to the right place..It always used for my sins, it was always been. Lately I have realized and stop doing the bad things with my money..I will not do that again.

I will change..I promise YOU

Unfortunate Events!

I returned to home at 4am this morning after wandering around with Yasir to watch some illegal racing downtown. Mingle around, surfed net a while then bump to bed to get some sleep. 5.30am my maid called me..I was 'what the *&$%', bothering me around this moment even my dream not even started yet..Once again I was 'What the fook'..she told me my car isn't at the place where it should be. Just one and half hour ago I saw her there..Damn car has been stolen! Bloody hell! Fucking bastard thieves! I aborted my sleep and outside I went..its fucking car was not there no more!

Sob sob..So much unfortunate events had happened to me lately..First my Nokia 6280 then my car. Before this, its been 3 times already she had been screwed and now, she may rest in peace. Till then..I wanna get ready to lodge my report at the police station. ciao..

Jahat,Pemanggil,Aur,Dayang,Seri Buat - Live-On-Board (Part 2)

My actual second dive commenced after lunch around 2pm kot..can't remember, have to refer to my dive log. The boat then made its way to Pulau Pemanggil as soon as they finished the second dive and while we were eating lunch.

We've been told by Comrade that this dive site got wreck at 5-6m depth. I was excited to put myself into the blue immediately when I heard that. Rupe-rupe nye, indah khabar dari rupe..The so-called wreck does not look like one at all, it was badly broken and pieces strewn all over the place, even I was hardly identified that is a wreck. It must been into the ground very hard. We made our tour into the deeper site then after frustrated with the wreck. Nothing spectacular found during the dive.

One thing I like the most during the trip was food. Everytime after diving, foods were already served whether at dining floor or at cylinder area/kitchen. Its 'goreng pisang' was the best heh, as Zarir always reminds us all about the deliciousness of the 'goreng pisang' while eating them. Anyway I like the 'cengkodok' the most, huhu! Thanks to Kak Zakiah, the resident chef that made us felt like home by her cooks. That's because they called me 'MT' I guess, because of the delicious food that forced me did the Man-has-to-do-what-man-has-to-do thingy on the boat. Only those on the boat knew what is 'MT' all about..keh keh keh!

After a while resting and enjoyed our surface interval, we went down again about 8pm for commencing the night dive. This time only six of us dived at the other side of Pulau Pemanggil before the boat made its way to Pulau Aur. I was invited by HollowMan to do the dive after getting approval from my sifu Jim. Sifu Jim went as well. We started at the anchor line before going further down 11m depth into the darkness. I brought underwater torch-light borrowed from Zarir. Now I realized that not so horror to go diving at night and yet going down with Para Perampok. Can't tell you what Perampok means is. It a divers' secret, become one then you'll know Wink. That was such a memorable one during my involvement in scuba diving. Till then..I continue later..

After 2 – 3 months certified, my instructor had invited to join his 'gang' for LOB (Live-On-Board) trip. It was 3 days 2 night on board – no land..just a big boat, seasick, and the most important is dive..dive..dive..unlimited dive! I was awed with the invitation until I keep counting days for the day trip.

Thursday (7th Sept)
6.30PM was my arrival time at the KLIA from Bintulu on the trip day; fetched by my girlfriend at the airport then rushed home to get ready for the trip. Such a tiring day that day, just got back from Bintulu and then immediately gone on trip. Sempat lagi kene marah dengan ibu, she was mumbling "dok ghajin nok nampok muke..kejap2 takdok kat umoh". Hehe!!

Finally, we were at the wharf at Tanjung Gemuk, Kuala Rompin at 4am in the morning the following day. We stopped twice, first at Seremban R&R, waiting for everybody to gather and then at Muadzam Shah to release all the tense while driving there. Drive to Tanjung Gemuk from thereon was good.

We have to be transferred to Wavebreaker (the boat we going to stay for 2 nights) using the tender as well as fishing trawler as tide was out. But we were entertained by the view of the partial lunar eclipse that night. Around 4.30am we were underway to our first dive site. I was sleeping as soon as we were on the boat. Dive operations immediately commenced when arriving at the Pulau Jahat around 8am. Visibility was not that great and the current was not so strong. As for me, I was underwater for 17minutes at around 14m depth cause my tummy got sick suddenly. Went up to surface escorted by dive master trainee (herein after will be called DMT) Baby. My first dive was spoiled. On the boat got seasick some more, asked for pill from Kak Ana then sleeping which caused me missed the second dive.cry

Everyone at their best on the boat (group photo)
