Scuba diving Spratly Islands - Hammerhead Shark school

Swimming inside a Hammerhead Shark school from Yauming Ymc on Vimeo.

Pardon me for not blogging. I've been fairly busy. I was scuba diving in the southern Spratly Islands - at a resort called Layang Layang. We encountered many hammerhead sharks. On the last dive there I swam inside a school of hammerheadsharks 40 - 60 of them. The deeper you went, the more you could see. The visibility wasn't great as there was a coral bloom - the sea was quite cloudy as a result. :) Visibility was around 20+ meters. Usually its 50 -80m.

Swimming surrounded by sharks I felt no fear just an incredible feeling of awe, wonder and humility that these mighty predators were allowing me into their ranks as if I was one of their own.

I'm at Marina Bay Sands

I'm staying at the Marina Bay Sands while my house is being renovated.

The best part is the Infinity Pool. My Canon 5D Mk3 was with me on the day and made some new friends.

I had some small complaints about MBS - the toiletries are cheap, the key card is faulty. But don't look down, always look up. :)
