With low season coming, dive shop business is also slower. Fighting boredom, I soon started using spare parts in all kind of creative ways.
That was the signal that I needed a change in my life...
So I decided to go on a dive holiday. Well, my plan was to go on a Blue Bike Inauguration trip. But soon after I started I noticed that I got pretty dirty. That was annoying. And then my bike failed. Brutal force and fire were required to get it going again .
And when, after crossing two oceans and driving for several hours, my butt did not feel attached to the rest of my body anymore, I gave up. But I still managed to make exactly one picture of the amazing scenery
And then I decided I had enough and needed a holiday. So I settled down in Dauin, Negros and went diving. What a surprise, not?This is serious diver territory. No corals and big fish, but many funny critters
So here we go again: underwater pictures. Let us start with a swimming frog fish, you can look right through its body
And here we have a yellow ornate ghost pipe fish, with perfect buoyancy control
And look at this Crinoid shrimp and the Pink Punk Crab
And a nice moray eel...
that was chased by these speedy flat worms
A midnight (strange name, i saw it during the day and the animal is not dark) snapper
And this is where i came for: the common (depressing adjective) seahorse
And then a Flying Gurnard, pretty special
and a nice nudibranch and the prehistoric looking devil fish, equipped with the optional antennas
And finally, we found a frog fish that celebrate the Netherlands-Italy slaughter with us, by wearing the appropriate colors...
Encore: The president of the Philippines, Arroyo, walked past our dive shop and went on a (heavily overweighted, I do not mean here, I mean she had too much weights, I do not want to be arrested) dive in Alona
