"A Weekend Dive" Pulau Dayang by bpacker

Pulau Dayang Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 127 photos

Come every weekend, hordes of Singaporeans like myself run off to the sun-kissed beaches of Malaysia and the tepid waters of the South China Sea to dive. As my luck would always have it, I always land up in a big diving group where there are few or no gals at all. Here's one such trip where I dived with some hunky chaps from the S'pore Army. Oh, and the hunk beside me in a dark blue wet suit is hubby. All of us were on a weekend dive trip at Pulau Dayang, the farthest offshore island from Mersing, Johor. Read more about my sleepless nights (!) with these fellas. Robertgaz got so amused to wrote a couple of hilarious stanzas. Here it is, for all to enjoy:

Snore wife and hubby,
With some army dudes,
Were sawing gourds together.

But from lack of rest,
Snoring with the best,
Luckless Glen reached the end of her tether.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Clear viz, beautiful white beaches
  • Cons:Nothing to do but dive here

    I always have this problem in remembering things I see, especially underwater. Probably due to the nitrogen. Gees. The only thing I remembered about Aur was the school of parrot fishes during my 1st open water dive. Amazing.
