I have always known about scuba diving but I never had a chance to learn about it. Until finally one day I had been invited to have a DSD session with a few other friends conducted by Mr Sanjay Vaghasia. After that 1st session, I got addicted and so I sign up for the course Open Water.

Finally after all the training at pool, it was time for the real Open Water experience at sea at Payar Island Langkawi, I was so excited about it. This was because not only it would be my 1st open water scuba but also it was my 1st time arrived to Langkawi.
I sign up for the course as Assistant Diver and did my 2 OW dives from 24th ~25th Nov 13 at Pulau Payar, Langkawi Malaysia using the facilities under East Marine Dive Center.

The day I got my OW card - I thought to myself "yeay finally I can dive!!!"
The day I got my AOW card - No longer restriction for me to dive at certain deeper dive sites.
The day I got my Rescue Card - might as well learn something about safety.
