Sipadan Island

Sipadan Island, Sabah

Sipadan is the only oceanic island in Malaysia, rising 600 metres (2,000 ft) from the seabed. It is located in the Celebes Sea east of the major town of Tawau and Semporna and off the coast of East Malaysia on the Island of Borneo. It was formed by living corals growing on top of an extinct volcanic cone that took thousands of years to develop. Sipadan is located at the heart of the Indo-Pacific basin, the centre of one of the richest marine habitats in the world. More than 3,000 species of fish and hundreds of coral species have been classified in this ecosystem.

Normally, rare diving scenes are frequently seen in the waters around Sipadan: schools of green and hawksbill turtles nesting and mating, schools of barracuda and big-eye trevally in tornado-like formations, pelagic species such as manta rays, eagle rays, scalloped hammerhead sharks and whale sharks.

A turtle tomb lies underneath the column of the island, formed by an underwater limestone cave with a labyrinth of tunnels and chambers that contain many skeletal remains of turtles that become lost and drown before finding the surface.


Getting there requires some effort. Most visitors fly to Tawau from either Kuala Lumpur (3 hours) or Kota Kinabalu (50 minutes), continue by minivan or taxi to the port town of Semporna (1-2 hours) and from there to Sipadan itself (1 hour by fast boat).

One of the many white tip reef sharks in the waters surrounding SipadanSipadan claims to be the world's best dive site. While this is a big claim, the diving here is certainly world class. Sipadan used to have resorts but to protect the environment these were closed around the year 2002. To dive on Sipadan you have to stay somewhere nearby, such as on Mabul or in Semporna, and take a boat onto the island.

Because Sipadan is now a protected site, only 120 dives are allowed daily (as of 8/26/08). It's best to try to dive as early as possible to beat the crowds and increase your chances of getting on the roster to dive.

From the main beach of the original resort it is a mere 20m wade over the reef to reach the top of the reef wall dropping 1000-2000m. Sipadan is surrounded by very rich reef life consisting of both hard and soft coral as well as all manner of reef fish. Sea turtles and white tip reef sharks can be seen on almost every dive and hammerhead and leopard sharks can also be seen at times. Visibility ranges from 10m to 30m and above.

Note that a barge accident on 15 May 2006 did some damage to the reefs at Sipadan, crushing a portion of reef on the old pier and Barracuda Point and dumping its cargo of gravel in the area. This was not one of the best dive areas, but cleanup operations and other repercussions did restrict diving in the months since.

The rate for three dives at Sipadan is around RM560. Rates vary slightly among different operators. Boat transfers and packed lunch are included. Permits are limited to 120 per day and are typically obtained by the dive operators. You should verify that the diver operator you choose is diving at Sipadan with permits, as some companies have been caught diving the island recently without permits.

Fahrin bukan SUPERMAN

Fahrin Ahmad - aku bukan superman

Hot actors and host who is loved by many women, Fahrin Ahmad also have hearts and feelings. His emotion scratches easily. Fahrin so disappointed when his name and dignity stepped. As as in the song  of The Lucky Laki, Aku Bukan Superman.

His manly hearts want love and are loved by women, but Fahrin did not think his teman tapi mesra mock his reputation. Sadly shocked when read reports from his former lover, Linda Onn overthrow reputation, dignity Fahrin feel his manly soul really challenged.

That is why not surprising why the press conference announcing he would sue the popular Suria FM radio presenter who is also the ex-girlfriend recently, Fahrin tears fall in front of journalists. Fahrin too sad with Linda actions as he deems excessive.

For him, what is done by Linda can not be accepted even though his actions to sue Linda is hard decision to do. Perhaps because of that his manly soul crying even he sneakly shed his tears.

The Secret 2012

This.. I wrote, based on my readings

There is a time when you need somebody to hold you tight late at night, when you feel so longing and vulnerable. Then you start to think about everyone in your life, who they are, what are they doing and most of the time you keep asking yourself whether they have the same feeling as yours.

Your secret

As your mind still wondering around the skies above, maybe you questioned your heart about those people. Are they had became the person or friends that you ever wanted? What is it that makes you keep stick to them? Are they worth enough to your precious relationship? Maybe.

This is much more like diagnosing yourself. But one thing you must remember is you are GREAT! Nothing and nobody can judge you. Be yourself. When do we start winning our own life? When you start to believe in yourself then it is time of yours. You control everything surrounding you. The chemistry between you and the climate of your life is become more stronger than before. Physically and spiritually.

Lyric: Somebody Me - Enrique Iglesias

You, do you remember me?

Like I remember you?
Do you spend your life
Going back in your mind to that time?
Because I, I walk the streets alone
I hate being on my own
And everyone can see that I refell
And I'm going through hell
Thinking about you were somebody else


Somebody wants you
Somebody needs you
Somebody dreams about you every single night
Somebody can't breath without you, it's lonely
Somebody hopes someday you will see
That Somebody's Me [2x]

How, How could we go wrong
It was so good and now it's gone
And I pray at night taht our paths will soon cross
And what we had isn't lost
Cause you're always right here in my thoughts

Repeat chorus

You'll always be in my life
Even if I'm not in your life
Because you're in my memory
You, will you remember me
And before you set me free
Oh listen please

Repeat Chorus

This Love

Kadangkala perkara tercantik dan terindah di dunia ini tidak boleh dilihat mahupun dipegang. Hanya HATI yang boleh merasai kehadirannya..

Love is not there to forget.. but to forgive
Love is not there to see.. but to understand
Love is not there to hear.. but to listen
:ove is not there to let go.. but to hold on

Dont you ever leave your lover just because the one you like and admire, because somehow the one you like might be leaving you for one they love. Seek for someone who call you BEAUTIFULL instead of HOT.

Who calls you back when you hang up on?
Who is stay wake up late night to guard you when you are sick and just to watch you asleep?
Who is kissing your forehead early morning?
Who is holding your hands in public?

Wait for someone who keep reminding you how much he care and how lucky is he to have you..

I Believe

I myself been thinking most of times, what or who I want to be in my life. Yes, there are always somewhere I have been facing obstacles to pursue what I've been dreamt of. But I keep saying to myself somehow that there is chances and opportunity for me to fullfill and prove to the world I'll be the one myself.

Your beliefs made up who you are and where you are in life. If you want to change any part of your life, you have to change your beliefs about yourself in that area. The starting point of unlocking your potential, and accomplishing more than you ever have before, is to challenge your self-limiting beliefs.

A friend of mine was telling me about 'THE SECRET' which is explain about the Power of Mind Control, I never read the book or watch the DVD but I do believe that human mind do control most of our behaviour. Did you ever felt that what came to your mind actually did happens in reality?

That's it! You are what you believe. Your mind controlled yourself. So be confident and happy for who you are. I read a book on psychology written by Maxwell Maltz, a plastic surgeon. He noticed that most of his patients personalities changed after cosmetic surgery. Many people changed from being depressed, negative and with drawn to positive and happy people after their surgery. He knew he didn’t operate on the brain, so he came to the conclusion it was the belief, the self image of oneself that was shifted. Watch what happens with kids. With a word of praise they do fantastic things and why a touch of negativity, even in your facial expression dims the light. What ever you believe about yourself, will end up affecting what you do and how you do it.

Each one of us has feelings of inferiority because we feel that we are not good enough. We think that we are not as good as other people, and we felt that we are not good enough to acquire and enjoy the things we wanted in life. Often we feel that we don't deserve good things. Even if we work hard and have some achievements in our life, we often feel that we are not really entitled to our successes.

The Universal Law of Belief says that whatever we believe, with feeling becomes our reality. We don't believe what we see; instead, we see what we believe. Our beliefs form a screen as to how we see the world, and we never allow any information that is not consistent with our beliefs to pass through it. Even if we have beliefs that are totally inconsistent with reality, we won't let them through because our beliefs have become true for us.

The fact is, you deserve every good thing that you are capable of acquiring through the use of your talents. The only real limitation on what you can be and have, is if you lack the desire. If you set a goal and want to achieve it badly enough, nothing in the world can stop you from achieving it, as long as you're willing to persist long and hard enough.

If you consistently act like the person you want to become every day and in every situation it will begin a chain reaction. Your attitude will change and become more postive. This will then build stronger and more postive beliefs. And your beliefs will then, exert a positive influence on your values.

You have no limitations on your potential except for those that you believe you have. Successful people are not extraordinary or special in any way. They are not different from you or I. But, all successful people do have the unwavering belief that they can accomplish anything that they really want in life. You are a good person. From this day forward, see yourself as the very best you can be, and refuse to accept any limitations on your possibilities. Once you develop that belief in yourself, and you act in accordance with your beliefs, your future will be unlimited.

You know there are people, beautiful people. You just wish they could see you in a different side, different place.. Instead of what you are, what you've become. But most of all, you wish you weren't such a pussy for wishing for things that'll never change.

Generally speaking we believe what we are programmed cumulatively to believe from the day we were born. To meet the goals and desires of your life you must continue to program you sub-conscious with positive thoughts that will help you reach your goals. I like Earl Nightingales saying, “A goal is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.” Your goal is your goal and all we can do is help facilitate it with you. Write this down, talk to your manager. Have a great year.
