This was just the other day.

had quite good visibility in Tiwoho and Cha Cha 2 point.

In the middle of the movie, there is a fish who got gray color head and red body, this one must be one of the version of  Firetail Dottyback, Labracinus cyclophthalmus (Müller & Troschel 1849) I guess.

I've seen similar one many years ago but just very quickly on the reef at Timor point, but not sure if it's same one or not.
In more than 20 years of diving here, this maybe the second time I saw this one. normally they are hiding deep inside coral thus does not come out at all.   wow.. very very rare fish!!!
I could not go any closer because they are very shy, but you can see at least it's swimming! Amazing.. never seen them swimming before.

Life goes on.

This morming, we had news from staff that our youngest dog "Brexy" gave birth to some puppies last night.
Brexy herself is still too young to have puppies though.. (she was born last year on "Brexit Day")


from a death, new life start again...

only a week ago, we lost our oldest family(dog) and great grandmother "Chin chan" .
She was really great mother of all doggies we got now.

we hope she was released from all pain and running around with joy again with her younger brother Gonzo together in beautiful place.

Thank you, Chin chan, we never forget many wonderful memories of many years (
almost 13 years) with you.


Thank you to all friends and guests who gave her lot of love and support.
