Week of Ups and Downs...

What a week it has been... Was gearing up (literally and figuratively) for diving in Singapore tomorrow, but it is not to be~~ The whole lab is landlocked with a temporary suspension of all diving activities organised by lab, thanks to a case of DCS (decompression sickness aka bends for the un-initialised) so nobody gets to dive for a while... Prof is trying his best to get this removed since just about nearly EVERYBODY in lab needs to dive (in varying degrees that is) Poor Wai was kinda walking around looking rather depressed and worried (and a little stressed) today since she was banking on tomorrow's session at Raffles' to finish what she could not do on Tues... Do hope that all this gets sorted out soon. Not fun having everybody (including Prof) stressed and low morale...

And on to the "ups"... Got my basic gear (minus the wetsuit, since I am borrowing Jani's in the meantime...) on National Day eve~~~ *bounces* Spent just about all the leftovers of my 'ang pow' money on it, so poor Martin had to count the rather many notes.... *toothy grins* Also had quite a bit of fun copying some of the Chek Jawa cartoons that Ria did onto my mesh bag ^^ Now just need to sit back and hope to hear good news soon~~~ With the gear shopping, it feels like Absolute is turning into my third "home" (after my actual home and lab), at least for this month... Went last week to check out gear, this tues to collect gear, earlier today with HX, and next tues to try out a wetsuit that Martin managed to scout out. Funny how he called me on my handphone just as HX and I realised that he was not back at the shop... And I definitely would be in the shop at least once next month since HX and I are planning to do Underwater Navigation whilst saving up for Advance in Dec....

Why does the whole lab kena when someone gets the bends?? It's not like it's bird flu or anything...
