40 hours countdown2 Sipadan Scuba Diving Paradise!!!

I woke up this morning and thought... "OH F@#$ I missed the plane!!!" Then I realized its still the 9th...

Only just 40 more hours before I arrive at Sipadan. This trip is being organised by Wendy.

The last time I went - it was good! See the photo of Jo there.

Got my new pair of fins from Marcus... 2nd hand Atomic Splits. Looks cool. S$130

Haven't yet packed. I couldn't find my scuba diving bag. I guess I will have to hand carry the fins with me. I'll look stupid lugging the things around but at least I won't have to put anything in the cargo.

Had to finish some important work this afternoon. Plugged in the figures, did the calculations (since last night), just about to mail it off and then WHAMP, WTF??? The power went dead. The switchboard won't turn on; I looked at my meter and it looked black and screwed. I asked my neighbor whether they also had a power failure... nope... OH CRAP.

It looked way too coincidental. Maybe its the proverbial Hand of God trying to stop me from going. I actually sat down and started praying. It'll take way too long for the electricians to fix the problem. And if I don't send this in, there will be hell to pay.

I called my friend Nick and he told me not to sweat it. Just turn off all the power and see whats the matter. As I was doing that I noticed that my washing machine, which I had turned on 20 minutes ago, had drenched the power wire. ... ^.^ ... I turned that off and all was cool.

Sent off the work and I'm all ready to pack!! But first some dinner.

Ahhhh.... I can't wait to go. I hope I can get along with the other divers in my group, I have not met the other 2 fellahs yet.
