Thanks to this awesome bunch of #womendivers 

A few weeks ago, fresh back from Japan, I was desperately seeking some dive buddies to get back underwater. I remembered heaps of women who had dive tickets, but couldn't find any who had been diving in the last few years (mostly due to motherhood). And so our group, 'Mama Divers' was born!

With Hama offering a refresher for those whose skills were a little rusty, we were soon back on track and back in the water - with a weekly dive for women, at our local reef, Flying Fish Cove. Then, as a coincidence, I discovered that PADI were having their annual 'women's dive day' event and the timing was just too poetic to ignore.

So we invited a bunch of Mama Divers to get together to celebrate Women in scuba for PADI Women's Dive Day 2018!

Congratulations to Arfah Omar, Farzian Zainal and Marnie Bell for coming out of diving retirement after years and years with no dives!!! They all slipped back into the water with no dramas and had an awesome dive. Great to see you back under water ladies!!

Thanks to everyone for coming. Hope we can make this a tradition that sticks! 

See you again next week!! Lin :)
