What the driest beautiful weather will bring to us near future?

CNN.co.jp  news said "There is a possibility of the strongest "El Nino" in the history we might have in this year".
Beautiful weather is good for the business, but little bit scarely news for near future...?!

Wire Coral Crab

We had quite strong south wind for few days thus many boats went to dive and snorkeling at east side of Bunaken Island.
to avoid crowed dive site, we decided to go to "Raimond point" (one of my favorite dive/snoekeling site) and found this very colorful orange crab call "Wire Coral Crab" or sometimes "Spider Crab" mimic a whip coral.


water temp. was 26 degree, it's 2 degree colder than usual Bunaken water temp.  umm... COLD!!!

Total Solar Eclipse 9th March 2016


I found interesting travel tour in Japan for Total Solar Eclipse in Indonesia March next year.
strange enough Manado is not included in their tour, but they were saying "more east you go is better to see this total solar eclipse", so why not to come and see it in Manado/Bunaken...??
