Hey

I am planning for a scuba certification trip anywhere in Malaysia, Thailand or Indonesia.

If there are some people intrrested then I can arrange the whole trip a the help of my friend. The trip could be 5-10 days long in which 5 days is for diving and rest could be for party. Please e-mail me at ashok.jaiswal@gmail.com

If this works out we can plan more frequent and more adventrous trips.

Looking forward

cheers

sounds like many people wana do it...oh well I 26 years software engineer here...i like swimming, tennis, squash, inline skating, working out, dancing, drinking n stuff...

so jane26 is already certified and can come along (while we go for theory lessons u can get drunk:P ) and seems Lilian is not certified so welcome abroad...

I was to go for certification on this weekend but a boat sank and my trips got screwed (don get scared people....people die even on the raods)...

so les come up for a date somewhere in the next month...1 of my friend organises trips...so once I have some people and date fixed he can plan it for us real cheap deals...

ohhh btw...any of u wana come in for skating someday..

cheers

woow..that is really great response..well its kind of cheap. I was going for the certification course which included meals, transportation, course material, equipement rental and accomodation for $550 (there were 5 open water dives in it at Tioman, malaysia)

it seems most of the people repled are certified already..since I am not certified yet so if there are about 5-6 people ready to go diving for let us say 5 days or say in malaysia, I think it should work out at about 400-500 or may be lot cheaper.

ok now all you want to come in just drop me an e-mail, once we have more than 5 people I would find out complete details.
cheers
