Woo Hoo! The Malaysian International Dive Expo is at the end of this month, July 30 – Aug 1 2010 at the PWTC in KL. I have attended this expo once…Exciting! It is like the PC Fair, only this time it is about anything and everything about Scuba Diving. It is also the time for meet & greet community-like feeling. The last time I was there, I've subscribed to the Asian Diver magazine and was qualified for the lucky draw at the end of the expo. Damn! If I knew I was going to be so lucky, I would have stayed back to claim the prize…which was an expensive watch. Kanasai! I didn't stay back, oh well, hopefully this year, my lucky star will shine brightly too.
The last trip, I bought myself a tray and arm for my underwater photography. This trip I'm going to check out the strobes! Inon D2000 or Sea & Sea YS-110α(Black). I am leaning towards the Sea & Sea YS-110A strobe which you see here.
