Diving Day Twelve

So… last full day of diving today. πŸ™πŸ™

I am still battling the sore ear but it would be unfair to leave Richard in the clutches of the Japanese folk… We don’t want any international incidents… Some headlines come to mind..

(Headline were removed in final editing – Sorry) 

Did you know that Olympus are bringing out a new range of cameras for the Japanese market?

Olympus I am Really Sure This must Be The Last Shot

Olympus In Your Face Shot (this can be upgraded with the Kick Up The Shit Extension Kit) 

Olympus You’re Really Getting On My Tits Shot

Olympus Be Everywhere, Take Everything Shot

With the view of making this blog interactive and whilst we are on the subject of cameras, I thought that a competition might be appropriate… 

Some of you have been hear (typo but left it in for effect) but for those of you who haven’t, here is a couple of pictures of the camera room… 

Here is our stuff… (stick with me on this, it could prove funny)  

You may notice that apart for our stuff it is almost empty… almost…

Just to be sure… Here is a picture of the other side of the room… 

Now where do you suppose the Olympus camera charger has been plugged in?

Answers on a postcard…

DIVE 38 – Tanjung Kubur

Great dive on Lembeh Island by the cemetery. Just us and Detmon. The Hawains and the Japanese with Nomsix. 

We saw lots and took lots of pictures.

Chromodoris nudi

Pickachu nudi

Two large brown stripey nudi.

Banded sea snake

Sexy shrimps

One of the Japanese ladies surfaced away from the boat, and the rest of the party.  She swum back to the boat on the surface and then went under the boat to the ladder rather than swimming round.  In fact she was so close to the bottom of the boat that it reminded us of Jen’s spiderman impersonation. πŸ•·οΈπŸ•ΈοΈπŸ•·οΈπŸ•ΈοΈπŸ•·οΈπŸ•ΈοΈ

At breakfast, there was no little packets of butter. This has happened twice now and although it really isn’t an issue, Richard was asked by the staff to go to the office to complain. As I was coming back to the hut he went to the office door, I heard him knock and open the door, shortly followed by many young women laughing very loudly. Now, I don’t know what he said, or if indeed he said nothing at all, but from a distance he looked very pleased with himself.
So I’ve considered this and as a newly married bride I think  I should try this at home… So every time he walks into a room, I am going to laugh, no not just laugh, but fall about in a fit of the giggles… Let see how that works for him…

He on his way back now, time to try it out…

Hmmm… Think I might need to work on my giggling technique. I doesn’t come naturally, more sinister than charming.  I was thinking Tinkerbell but it was more Vincent Price… 

Me… πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

Richard… β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜πŸ˜•πŸ™πŸ˜¨πŸ˜°πŸ˜±

Anyway, he calmed down enough to come diving with me…

Had a quiet word with Hany before the dive and he did an excellent job of making sure that everyone was catered for. No pushing in, no shit kicked up.

Very enjoyably dive muck dive. 

We saw crazy shrimps and beautiful nudis.


DIVE 41 – Jahir 1

I am pleased to say that we both did the four dives today, so looks like my ears are on the mend.

Completely shattered now!

Dinner and bed calling…
