Last night I had the pleasure to meet some interesting divers from MalaysianUnderwater.com. The TT(short term for teh tarik session or in simple english, meetup)place was at Pelita Restaurant, Jalan AMPANG. Bobo briefed us on DAN asia pasific, on the insurance package and stuff. Other chats were on various topics mainly focusing on scuba diving activities. Was a fun sharing knowledge especially it was my 1st experience around real divers.
