A Batfish Stalked Me!
Once during my swims, a fish followed me and when I looked at it closely, I accidentally kissed it and poof! It transformed into a dashing prince with abs.
16Hours at Sea (within 24Hours) ~ Pirates of the Indian Ocean Feels
It was a month before the lockdown started when we had a chance to sail. I don’t know why I only remembered to blog about it after more than a year, but anyway, here’s that 16-hour sea adventure.
A Peculiar Encounter with a Curious Shark
It was one of those afternoon swims with my colleague when we encountered a curious blacktip reef shark. Halfway through our swim, I saw two blacktips coming our way. I looked at where they were heading, and they went straight into that school of black fishes. They swam around the school. And me being the…

Day 10 to 14 – What Now?
Day 10: Ebe Dancel’s Music I couldn’t sleep that night. It was already late. But since I couldn’t sleep, I took my phone and started searching for Ebe’s music videos on youtube. So random. His songs are timeless. And as I listened to song after song after song, I felt different emotions. Heartbreak, joy, hope.…
Boracay: On a Personal Note
For those who know me personally or have been reading my blog for some time now, you would know that I’ve been working in the Maldives since 2016 and my thoughts on my Boracay visit would (probably) be interesting.

Needless to say, this post will contain images which will show why Fushifaru is a super instagrammmable resort in the Maldives. But before we proceed with all the photos, let me give a brief description of the resort. Like, really brief.
