My Vios TRD with Dive Flag

Seafood @ Portuguese Settlement, Malacca


Your journey to Mallaca will not complete without having seafood here at The Portuguese Settlement, Ujong Pasir, Malacca. This place is just near Banda Hilir and Dataran Palawan Melaka. From Dataran Pahlawan Megamall on Jalan Merdeka, use Jalan Parameswara towards Ujong Pasir. When you're on Jalan Ujong Pasir, look for a sign on your right, indicating Portuguese Settlement. Turn right and about 500 meters you will enter the pivate car park with only cost you RM1. Look for row of restaurants with fantastic view or Straits of Malacca. This place was rebuild with new jetty and building with lots of recreation space and parking. 

The Portuguese Settlement, Malacca
This place is crowded every night and will be more happening with colourfull lights during Christmas. The seafood is good with variety of choice and there are 10 stalls for you to choose from all serve with portuguese seafood. I choose stall no 8 (De Costa's). You shold try the special dine here- the crab and ask more details about the menu because some of them will be a bit different from your understanding. Plus it's very CHEAP (Crab sambal, butter prawn, baked sotong, lala soy sauce and kangkung belacan) and my bill just came out only RM75 for 2 person.

      

50 Places to Dive before I Die..


From the book of 50 Places to Dive before You Die - here are the top 10 places in the world where i would like to dive within this 10 years. I already complete 1 of the location (Sipadan) and 2 more for coming next year. With The PADI National Geographic Diver Cert and other specialties (underwater photographer and videographer) i will be able to complete my documentary and conservation project with help of my crews and LUCK! Please support us and funding now. Donation can be made at the right side of the page. Even a small contribution can help to save our oceans and marine life. Thank You - Dare to Dive!

1. Australia - Great Barrier Reef

 



The Great Barrier Reef is the very definition of exotic diving. Stretching some 1,500 miles off the northeastern tip of australia in the Coral Sea, it is the world's largest coral reef system. The region is home to 400 species of coral, 1,500 species of fish, seventeen species of sea snakes, six species of turtles...




The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven wonders of the natural world, and pulling away from it, and viewing it from a greater distance, you can understand why. It is larger than the Great Wall of China and the only living thing on earth visible from space.



2. Bahamas - Grand Bahama



There are few places in the world where you can interact with large sharks all day and all night. Grand Bahama is one of the northernmost islands of the 700 island Bahamas chain. Found in temperate and tropical seas the world over, tiger sharks take their name from the stripes that ornament their sides.


Diving in Grand Bahama is spectacular. It is famous for its "Blue Holes" and spectacular azure portals in the reefs. Grand Bahama has the second largest underwater cave system in the world. You will find a full array of dives available including reef dives, cave dives, wreck dives, dolphin dives, shark dives and lots more.

3. Fiji - Bligh Water




The republic of Fiji consists of some 300 islands situated nearly 3,000 miles southwest of Honolulu. Only 100 of the islands are populated and most of Fiji's 918,000 residents lives on the 2 largest islands.



Fiji's and Bligh Water coral reef system is a complex web of barrier reefs surrounding large lagoons and islands. Coral growth and fish action are most robust on those outer barrier reefs. Marine life is especially concentrated within the reef passages and channels that link the lagoons with the deep ocean. But the barrier reefs are remote and vast - a long way from shore bases - so only the best-equipped live-aboard diving vessels can access these locations.



4. Indonesia - Nusa Lembongan



Oceanic sunfish or mola mola are occasionally seen by sailors of fishermen as they "sunbathe" at the surface. A small island southeast of Bali, mola mola congregate in considerable numbers, allowing divers an excellent chance to interact with these reclusive creatures.


Bali is the best known of the islands of Indonesia, thanks to its popularity as a tourist destination. Its steep volcanic mountains and pristine white and black sand beaches are the picture of tropical bliss.  The waters around Nusa Lembongan boast healthy reefs and even opportunities to observe fine macro life, and the island's proximity to strong flows and deep water make it a regular stomping ground for manta and eagle rays, white tip and black tip shark, and tuna.






5. Malaysia - Sipadan




Sipadan is a small island situated about twenty miles off the northeast coast of Borneo in the Celebs Sea. The island is run by the nation of Malaysia. Its location in the heart of the Indo-Pacific basin make it one of the world's richest diving habitats, with more than 3,000 fish species and hundreds of coral species.

A reef rising 600 metres (2000 ft) wall from the seabed surrounds the entired island, and every place along the wall has interesting things to offer, whether it's gigantic gorgonian coral, immense schools of barracuda, legions of green and hawksbill turtles, or a huge group of outsize bumphead parrotfish that go thundering by like a herd of bison.




6. Maldives



The Republic of the Maldives consists of 26 coral atolls and 1,200 islets, roughly 400 miles southwest of the southern tip of India. The average elevation of this nation of atolls and islands is just north of 3 feet above sea level, making it the world's flattest republic.




The Maldives serve up excellent biodiversity, with upward of 700 fish species and more than 10,000 invertebrate species. A diving spot called Manta Point is considered manta ray heaven. Giant specimens go by with 15-16 foot wingspans. For serious divers a live-aboard is the only way to go.




7. Mexico - Isla Guadalupe



Isla Guadalupe is located roughly 210 miles southwest of San Diego. It's a volcanic island that's 90 square miles in size.  Sharks are very common in Guadalupe. A large number of sharks were coming up and taking 200 pound yellowfin tuna right at the boat off anglers' lines.




Great white sharks are the undisputed apex predators of the ichthyological world, only killer whales, humans and other white sharks pose the creatures any danger. Great whites can be found through most of the oceans of the world, sometimes swimming to depths of 4,000 feet.




The cages that make Isla Guadalupe shark diving possible are designed of one inch by one inch aluminum bars, with a 5,000 pound crush strength. They're built to withstand the impact of a curious great white who decides they need a closer look at you.



8. Mozambique - Inhambane




Inhambane town rests on a peninsula off the coast. One guys says: "I'm always amazed at the energy and lust for life the local people have, considering how little they have in material terms. You can mix freely with the locals, which adds another dimension to the trip." The nation of Mozambique lies along the Indian Ocean in southeastern Africa, bordered by South Africa to the south and Tanzania to the north.




The fish that you can see off Inhambane are the fully grown specimens. You'll come upon brindle bass that are seven feet long and potato bass that are nearly as big and manta rays and whale sharks. You don't go to Mozambique for the reefs, but for the fish- and for the sense that you're a bit of a pioneer, as relatively few people have been there.




9. Myanmar - Mergui Archipelago




The Mergui Archipelago consists of some 800 islands off the southern coast of Myanmar, stretching north from the Thai border nearly 200 miles and encompassing over 14,000 square miles of marine territory, much of it unexplored.



The islands- blanketed with a mix of rainforest, mangroves, and white sand beaches- are largely untouched by the imprint of mankind. There are inland reefs that offer incredible species diversity, offshore reefs that offer better visibility and more robust coral; and pinnacles, which have the potential to attract large pelagics.



The Myanmar Sea Gypsies, also known as Salons, are members of the Moken ethnic group of Myanmar and Thailand, and sustain themselves hunting and gathering the riches of the sea. Sometimes you can run into them around Mergui Archipelago.



10. Palau- Republic of Palau




The Republic of Palau consists of 200 plus islands, on the southern edge of the Philippine Sea, roughly 600 miles east of the Philippines and 400 miles north of New Guinea.




Below the surface, a constant supply of reefs and walls, more than 1,300 species of fish- and a handful of wrecks- provide steady stimulation. Blue Corner is the site that perhaps best defines the Palau experience. It's a magical place where everything seems to eventually pass by, going up or down the reef with the tides.




The Napoleon wrasse is a favourite fish for many visitors. They are approachable and large in size, up to 6 feet long. They're a big and jowly green creature, remarkably friendly when you feed them hard boiled eggs. It is also a place where u can find a thresher sharks.
