    Were you renting a competition boat? $120/hr seems on the high side.

    Oh, it's jelly fish season now too...

    When you carry your own tank of breathable air with you..... Fish chasing, no problem. Whale Shark chasing, no problem. Sea Turtle chasing, no problem. Your near drowning is due to a very common mistake everyone goes through.... you bend your head too low, causing the snorkel to dip below the surface

    Your pictures speaks for you, not your camera.

    But you're right, Scuba diving can be fun. It's just that one can only have that many hobbies (especially those that will make you BBB like crazy)...

    Also, I forgot to mention... man those sea urchins at the see bed really gives me creeps! (*brrrr!) It doesn't help when your goggle makes them so damn clear!...

    Where do you normally scuba anyway? Tioman?

    Normally... its what you can't see that would really 'hurt' you.... Stonefish, Scorpionfish, Jellyfish, stinging coral.... etc.

    I dive any where I can afford.... Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia... etc.

    Anywhere that has clear blue sea, huh? What about clear lakes? I've seen documentaries of beautiful clear lakes that have really green grass growing on the lake beds... simply mesmerising!

    I know these are the common tyes of expensive hobbies that some Singaporean people have :
    Fishing - popping, luring, bottom, and jigging. Both rods and reels are expensive and not to mentioned charting boats.
    Cycling - high end road and mountain bikes are expensive, costing more than $10,000.I'll avoid them on road while driving
    Guitars - can cost about $10,000 a piece. Not even diamond studded, can't understand why but sound very good.
    Golfing - gears are expensive too. No idea what the top end cost and session cost is expensive also.
    Sunglasses - can cause thousand dollar plus for Oakley Carbon frame. Can't understand why so expensive too
    Stamps - can be in the range of 5 or 6 digits ! Better make sure to close all windows while admiring it and not let it gone with the wind
    All of the above items are normally classified as small items but how that cost evolved is amazing.

    I love cycling and fishing

    You must be refering to deep-sea fishing right? Do longkang or lake fishing require such expenditures? Not entirely familiar with that hobby myself.

    No lah.... I'm a public transportion worker... need to protect my eyesight, driving during the day. Plus good to wear one pair when on my Scuba trip.... wear onboard the boat against bright sunlight.
