      Hi Mrs Pip,
      Thanks sebab singgah kat bog ni. Ya, I think the kids were happy from morning till evening they were given special punya attention by the sponsors. They enjoyed it. Wah, you are a diver too? Awesome. Ada ni satu trending bah, the mermaid free diving di Terengganu. I badly want to try it lah. hehehe.

      1. saya ambil open water course saja, nak upgrade ambil master dive tu mahal dan tak cukup syarat lagi … tapi lama dah tak dive, & saya ni cuma akan dive with my husband. haha, he is the only person I trust to dive with … lagipun kalau diving ni, mmg kena ada trusted buddy … muehehe… bagus juga kalau ada free diving, tapi kat Terengganu la pula …
