Diving Encouter With The Great White

By Terence on Travel Postcards It was hunt number 3 for the monstrous beast. Hunt number 1 failed due to bad weather. We checked in to the backpackers and they told us the weather wouldn’t permit for the next 3 days. Undaunted, we rescheduled as we had more than a week left. Then the day […]

From city to the salty sea

Nerve wrecking as it may be, I managed to gather my guts to Pulau Payar. It’s been a year or more since my last dive. This one was really a challenge. I had my doubts, fears and definitely what ifs but I was determined to get it done. After all a license to dive is […]
