Wreck Diving Labuan


Wreck Diving
Labuan offers ideal diving conditions all year round for beginning, novice, and seasoned divers. Crystal clear waters and an opulence of shipwrecks have made Labuan the region's center for wreck diving. Four shipwrecks have been discovered so far. Two were sunk during World War II and the other two were commercial vessels that sank in the 1980s. Diving expeditions can be arranged to Labuan's four major wrecks: American, Australian, Blue Water, and Cement Wreck.

Located southwest of Pulau Rusukan Kecil, the American Wreck is the USS Salute, which is a minesweeper built in late 1943. It was sunk by a mine in 1945 and now sits on a sandy bottom at 33m. The Australian Wreck site lies approximately 23km from Labuan and southwest of Pulau Rusukan Besar. The identity of the ship is still uncertain. It was a freighter built in Rotterdam in 1900, captured by the Japanese in 1942, and sunk by the Royal Australian Air Force in 1945. Hence it was aptly named after its foe. The Cement Wreck is the MV Tung Hwang. It was a freighter, which hit a sandbank in 1980 while carrying cement for the Sultan of Brunei's new palace. Located east of Pulau Kuraman, it sits upright in 30m of water and its masts are 8m below the surface. The Blue Water Wreck sits approximately 34km offshore Labuan, northwest of Pulau Kuraman. It was the MV Mabini Padre, a Philippine trawler that sank in November 1981. Being further offshore, this wreck usually has the best visibility. Among all the wrecks, the Cement Wreck is the easiest to dive and is usually used for wreck-dive training. The American and Blue Water Wreck are for experienced divers only.

Labuan Beaches & Islands


Beaches & Islands
Labuan and its neighbouring islands are a sun-seeker's paradise with breathtaking panoramic views of the South China Sea, secluded white sandy beaches, and lots of tropical sunshine. The remote islands of Papan, Kuraman, Daat, Rusukan Besar, Rusukan Kecil, and Burong have plenty to offer. Visitors can spend the day exploring the beaches or the dense jungle inland, which is home to a variety of plants and animal. There are also a variety of water sports, such as jet skiing, wind surfing, scuba diving, fishing, and even wreck diving. The crystal clear water offers a window to the rich marine life of the South China Sea.

Kampung Ayer (Water Village) in Labuan


Kampung Ayer (Water Village)
There are a few stilt villages that can be found on this island. Kampung Patau-Patau and Kampung Bebuloh Laut are two fine examples. Clusters of Malay-styled wooden houses on stilts are built out over the sea and are connected to the land by raised walkways. Currently, efforts are made to ensure that these scenic water villages are not bypassed by the rapid development that is transforming the island. A modern water village complex has been built to cater to thousands of visitors. It is facilitated with seafood restaurants, shopping malls, and a boardwalk. Visitors can also stay in waterfront chalets or enjoy a host of water sports activities.

Labuan World War II Memorial Park


World War II Memorial Park
A beautifully landscaped cemetery, the War Memorial is located at Tanjung Purun on the outskirts of Labuan town (formerly Victoria Town). The memorial is the final resting place of fallen Allied soldiers. Maintained by the Commonwealth War Commission, it is a poignant memorial to the 4,000 Australian, New Zealand, and British Allied servicemen who had lost their lives during the World War II. A section is also dedicated to the Indian Soldiers of the Punjab Regiment who died fighting alongside their comrades. Many visitors, especially those from Australia, often return annually to pay their respects to lost friends and relatives.

Trivia about Putrajaya


Putrajaya is a planned city, located south of Kuala Lumpur, that serves as the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. The seat of government was shifted in 1999 from Kuala Lumpur due to the overcrowding and congestion there. Nevertheless, Kuala Lumpur remains as Malaysia's national capital and also as the commercial and financial centre. Putrajaya was the brainchild of a former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad who was in power then.
PUTRAJAYA word is came from Malaysian Prime Minister named Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra. in Malay "PUTRA" means KING while JAYA means "GOOD".

I really love to explore the nature most of the island in the Philippines I explore already. One time my best friend told me what to do for his birthday, I told him we explore the island that lot of caves because he and I love adventures, and then He invites His another friends on his birthday we explore the island with lot of caves.

What kind of life i have?

40 Days of my mother
12/23/2009 11:53 AM

Today is 40 days later after my mother is died I’m so sad I can’t see her anymore she is now in hand of God with my father and my one brother they are now both in heaven. I feel now I’m alone even if I have brothers and sister still living, because they have already their family. For me I want to start my own life but I think I’m in a wrong pathway of life. All my brothers and my sister don’t know where I am and what I’m doing, they don’t even know where I living and whose I’m living for? Since my mother is gone I don’t know what to do in life I feel so very empty, but thank for the one person that really loves me for what I am this kind of person that I’m looking for to love me is here always in me and never leave me whatever happens in my life. Before, I told to my self that I won’t give love 100 percent to other person, but now I will give more than 100 percent because I found the real love to this person. I’m so blessed that I found a kind of person like this.

Last Christmas

Last Christmas!

As I remember during previous Christmas happens in my life step by step I will refresh it.
First is in Agpangi in my auntie every Christmas I and my cousin will go to their place because my auntie gives us a Christmas gift. And that was happen when I was in my grade school.
Next Christmas that I remember is in Caibiran at the Letran family as I remember that was the first time that I eat ice cream and grapes because I told to them that in my whole life I didn’t able to eat ice cream and grapes and I am 14 years old at that time. They had a lot of foods and fruits they cook spaghetti, cake, and fruit salads they are so very happy. We put all our foods outside the house in one table and in their traditions they will exchange foods to their neighbors that also have their tables of food outside their backyards I am so happy at that time even if I’m far away from my family. I serve the Letran family as a houseboy at the age if 14 years old. They give me also a Christmas gift a new dress I’m so very happy at that time. Compare today I’m so lonely I’m just alone far away from my brothers and sister and also I celebrate Christmas that fatherless and motherless because they are already in hand of God.

Tuloy tuloy pa din ang pasko Pero baka bagong taon ma postpone

Tuloy tuloy pa din ang pasko
Pero baka bagong taon ma postpone

O bakit kaya tuwing pasko ay
dumarating
Ang bawat isa’y para bang namomroblema
Hindi mo alam ang regalong ibibigay
Ngayong kay hirap na nitong buhay
Merun pa kayang karoling at noche buena
Kung tayo naman ay kapos at wala ng pera
Nakakahiya kung muling pagtagoan mo ang iyong mga inaanak sa araw ng Pasko
Ngunit kahit na anong mangyari Ang pag ibig sana ang mag hari, Sapat nang si Hesus ang kasama mo, Tuloy na tuloy pa rin ang pasko Mabuti pa nga ang pasko noong isang taon Sa ating hapag mayroong keso de bola’t hamon Baka sa gipit, Happy New Year mapo-pospone At ang hamon ay mauuwi sa bagoong!
