It’s been while since I got wet as well as posting on the blog again.

This time we went to the double wreck  SS Dee Why and Meggol (ex HMS Wexford, SS Doomba and HMAS Doomba).

It was quite exciting as there are few penetration and 2 different wrecks on one dive!  We spend most of time on SS Dee Why and swam over to Meggol to have a quick look. I also tried Dive Rite Gator and a camera housing and both worked fine, so I will take my camera and start taking few shot and video next time.

Dive Data;

Max Depth; 48.4 metre

Dive Time; 62 minutes

I was on my rotation day off. Most of people enjoy the sleep in for your day off, but I was up quarter to 5 this morning getting ready for a dive on the SS Birchgrove Park.

Weather was perfect, picked my buddy up and arrived at the boat pick up point Little Manly at 6am. Gear up and suit up for a 6:30 pick up, talking with other divers about the dive, 6:45 still not sign of the boat, keep talking, 7:00 still not, everyone start wondering if the trip was cancelled. 7:10 finally boat arrived.

10 divers total. Everyone knows everyone even new Tec diver like me knew most of them.

4 in my team, dive was great. It was my first dive on this wreck, so I was trying to picture myself which part is which. Did I success? No. I was so excited and went in where ever I could get in and just had fun.

It was over 40 metre dive so I didn’t take my camera but one of my team member took Sony Cyber Shot with 40 metre rated housing with him and saying it’s been no problem. I might take the housing only next deep dive to see if it works. If it’s OK then I can take photos on those wrecks around Sydney!

Coolooli again!

I realized I haven’t been diving for more than 5 weeks. Last dive was the last training dive for my DSAT Tec Deep Diver course. It actually was at Coolooli.

So I booked 2 dives on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was with my buddy AB and Sunday was with guys from my course.

Both days happened to be Coolooli again. I was expecting somewhere else on Sunday but end up the same.

But you know, I like Coolooli!

I enjoyed both dives.

So what’s next?

Yum Cha 飲茶

China Town

I went to China Town for Yum Cha 飲茶 with my share mate last weekend.

Where is the photo of the foods?

Sorry I was so hungry and all foods were gone by the time I remember about camera. It has been a while since I had Yum Cha last time. I think I got to have more often.

After the Yum Cha, we wondered around Darling Harbour for a while and saw this Unicycle performer. He talks a lot of jokes which wasn’t a good one but performance wasn’t bad.

Last Thursday

And I found my first Snow Pea! Yee Hah~~~! …….but I can’t make any meal out of only one Snow Pea. Umhuuuuu…
