Surprise of the week

Wx-very hot and very fine for past 3 days.

No posts on previous 2 days because we do not want to bore you with the same story (no hammerhead sightings). Until today that is. we guess we are beginning to develop the same syndrome as all the divers that come to Layang Layang (hammerheads or bust).
Main gripe is no hammerheads means no good dive, no good divemaster and want their money back. Get real ladies and gentlemen, we don't have a secret switch for the hammerheads, we do not have a contract with them that says they must perform when YOU are around, we do not have a line to god either. We are only human and our job is to divemaster, show you stuff we know and can control. HAMMERHEADS, THRESHER, WHALE SHARKs, MANTAs are not bolted down in the water. We know you pay a lot of hard earned money to be here, WE WANT to show everything you expect but...........

Praise be to god (in normal circumstance, we are not that religious), there are a lot of other divers that do not have that mentality or expectations. We thank them for making us happy just to know them as happy people. Hip Hip Hooray.

On a lighter note. Have you notice the sunset when you are in Layang Layang? They can be so spectacular. We heard tell that some people will travel all over the world for a beautiful sunset. Hey, the stars are great too. makes you small when you look up and try to count them.
ps. we welcome you all with open arms regardless.
