Bad Weather

Wx- Raining cats, dogs, mice and elephants. Sea- Choppy

Weather currently very bad due to the typhoons passing by in Philippines. If you notice the weather in Southern China, we are also getting the tail end of it. Go to and you will know what we mean.

As for the Photo Competition, the response was very positive and almost every contestant won something. In fact 1 of the diver that was here on holiday entered for the fun of it and won a Sony Powershot using his own Sony camera with the plastic housing and no strobe. Some of the photos were very good. We are sure you will get to see them in Asian Diver and some other magazines in the next couple of months. Can't get our hands on the photo to post it, maybe better luck next time. As luck and mother nature would have it, the weather during the competition was sunshine and calm seas.
You would never believe the amount of macro stuff you can find in Layang Layang. Even the Dms were surprised with some of the macro creatures.
Our 2 bit comment on the photo competition - not all judges are alike in their taste. Some have better natural talents than others. But all in all very well behaved and abided by our diving rules.

Guess not many friends of Layang Layang out there interested in a get together. Anyways, we still have some time to see what the response is like. If you are too lazy to sign up with bloggers but would like to give some suggestions, you can always write to our blog writers email address (that is if you know who we are).

The marine life since the competition until now have been mobulars, mantas, jacks, whale shark, marlin, couple of Hammerheads and the regulars. Bye.
