Koleksi Dari Laut Merah

These are some of my favourites collection of photos during our scuba diving trips for the last one year here in Red Sea off Yanbu, Saudi Arabia. Since then, the number of Malaysians taking up this hobby has been increasing. Currently, they are 9 Malaysian licensed divers in Yanbu including my 2 girls. So far, we have not ventured any other site but around Yanbu. There are still lot of dive sites yet to be explored by us. Since getting my diving license in Tioman, it has been a dream to dive in Red Sea where some people refer it as a diving haven. Underwater photography is one of the module offered in the advance course for open water scuba diving which some of us are planning to enroll soon. So, enjoy the photos ...
Suka tengok nemo ni... macam tau-tau je aku nak amik gambar dia.


Ikan cantik ni termasuk dalam kumpulan ikan 'butterflyfish'. Ada macam-macam jenis...

Ini pulak dipanggil Regal Angelfish

Berbagai jenis coral/karang di Laut Merah. Aku masih belajar untuk mengenali jenis-jenisnya.

These are my girls ... most probably they are the youngest Malaysian girls ever to dive in Red Sea off Saudi Arabia...
