I is moving on (at last)

Map of Semporna

This time tomorrow I’ll be in Semporna and on an EFR (Emergency First Response) course. I finally caught Vincent early enough in the day to get it all booked up. I just need to ensure I have a seat on the overnight bus and somewhere to stagger into at 4:30am when I arrive.

Not a lot else to report. I had fruit for the first time in ages yesterday after a walk to the central market for some lunch. I gave up asking prices when everything turned out to be “one ringgit“. Rose apples, star fruit, watermelon, oranges, bubble tea… Good stuff. I also intended to use the restaurant downstairs for dinner, but they were closed (it being a Sunday) so I won’t challenge you too much to guess where I ended up instead.

I gather Semporna doesn’t have a KFC. This is a good thing.

So to all those I’ve been nattering to on MSN until the early hours, I’ll catch you again when I do – use my email instead! The current plan is to return to Kota Kinabalu once I’ve done my Rescue Diver and (hopefully) been amazed by Semporna. But you know how my plans change… The only other thing that’s looking likely is a return to Vietnam around the middle of September to visit Hanno who’s working at a Primate Research place near Ninh Binh. Dependant on availability (of good weather and tourists), I may also work as a tour guide in Hanoi for the remainder of my visa.

We shall see!

  1. Cool you’re going to do the EFR course! I will be diving in Malta in October and am planning to do 4 specialties after which I will try to get my EFR in the next holiday (hopefully Oz). Sounds like you’re having an amazing time, are you planning on coming back ever???
    Just a quick (practical)question: my norton anti virus will expire tomorrow and I was wondering if you could recommend a good anti virus programme, which preferably is free 🙂

  2. No plans to come back, but still a lot of Europe to see so I guess I’ll have to manage it at some point.

    I’m currently in a room by myself with the EFR study material and I’m meant to be working… I have done quite a few specialties, but don’t have them certified as I did them as part of other courses. D’oh.

    And the answer you seek is at http://free.avg.com – just make sure delete Norton properly beforehand, and that you keep telling the web page you want the free version and NOT to trial the full one.
