First time ever (actually second time if I count my discover dive), diving in the ocean. Where I could see clown fish, algea, jellyfish, anemons, and coral...yuuuhuuuu!! It was a thrilling sense mixed with excited feeling, the unknowing become gradually know about diving and underwater life. I couldn't say anything more except "FANTASTIC" (visibility only 2 meters? still fantastic!:D) I finally make my old dream come true! Hell yeah it's an emotional experience for me:D Though I came back with bruishes, nose bleeding, and sunburn...but my first time diving is a FANTASTIC journey^^.
