It's Easter break for Leslie and Tiffany, so one more time we are on the road. First was the week-end in KL for the 10th birthday party of travelblog. On Monday we first queued for 90 minutes to get visas for Leslie and Tiffany, than we spent our day at the Sunway amusement park, going through the wildlife park, the amusement park as well as a waterpark. Nice to get busy for few hours, but really not much to write about. And by 8.30pm, it was time to get on the road again. First a taxi to PWTC bus station. There, we met Jo one last time as she was going on another night bus to Perenthians. For us, it was first the little town of Dungun (Terrengganu), before boarding a speed boat to Pulau Tenggol. ... read more

Whale Sharks! - Nature's Biggest Fish In 7 years of diving, I've missed more whale shark sightings than the average diver - with something like 700 dives completed, I've never seen one. I'd stopped believing. Each season on the Perhentians I'd miss the whale shark, either being on a visa run, taking a morning off, or the boat would be broken - I missed seeing these beautiful creatures time and time again. Until now. Now I believe! We'd been told that a couple of friendly whale sharks had been seen regularly at one of the dive sites off Tenggol, so we dropped in, and waited - patience is a virtue and in two out of the three dives we tried at this point - the whale sharks turned up. Saturday - 16:30 - first attempt - ... read more
