Have you ever fed sharks before?Well, if this piques your interest, try your hand at it @ Pulau Payar. This island has the friendliest fish I've ever seen in my life ! Schools of rabbit fish, shark pups literally swim up to you when you feed them. Don't worry, they're very tame.

Just don't throw your entire lunch packet at the poor fish or an unsuspecting diver or make a big scene when you see sharks swimming up to you. Sigh, when I was there, scores of delighted snorkellers clapped their hands and kick the waters in delight after a particular fish feeding session. I wonder if they knew they were agitating the shark. On top of that, I got smacked in the face by one of those stupid lunch packets! Just my luck..
