    I also worked with quite a few Filipinos when I was in Singapore.

    https://www.metasport.com/sugarcane-triathlon-club/

    They formed the Sugarcane Triathlon Club, evolving from members of a swimming club.

    Interesting discussion about swimming...

    Here are some still shots from the GoPro vids of a friend - these pics are not mine.

    Thanks david48 for the reposts.

    I don't dive either. Those underwater shots were taken while snorkelling. I enjoyed snorkelling this time, by just using my swim goggles and surfacing once in a while. Last time I tried snorkelling, I used a snorkelling mouthpiece, and couldn't get the hang of it. A friend brought a full face mask snorkel and I tried it for a time - I liked using that better. You just look like one of Darth Vader's soldiers in pics. It's also a bit bulky to bring and I like to travel light, so I'll stick to my swim goggles.

    Edit: the full face snorkel mask was bought via Lazada, was ~20 USD.

    Btw, I saw dive courses available in Puerto Galera. During that time, a one week course was 16k pesos or a bit over 300 USD.

    We bought a couple of those full face snorkel masks, but didn't like using them.

    I now just use a TYR HYDROVISION GOGGLE.

    Slightly larger than the tiny swim goggles, but still small enough to take up no room while travelling light, and also provide better peripheral vision.

    I think may have been, putting the tube in her mouth, biting down and sucking, that was confusing.

    ^heh.

    That's why it's best to always be careful of what you say/write here on TD, because it can be taken against you later on.

    @tizme - those goggles look interesting, and yes they'd provide better peripheral vision. Cheers.

    Back to the pics. For Day 3, my group had a smaller boat (max 10 ppl), and we had it to ourselves. So yay, no joiners!

    Saw these 2 ships: a cruise ship and the 2go passenger/freight ship.

    saw another buoy

    Btw, how do you guys pronounce "buoy"?

    I've always pronounced it in the same way as "boy" because of the soap Lifebuoy. Then I heard it pronounced in a docu as "boo-wee".

    Is it a US/UK thing, similar to "to-may-to" and "to-mah-to"? I pronounce it as to-may-to, 'cos I'd be given weird looks here if I said it as to-mah-to.

    For Day 3, we took Tour C1 and it was just to 3 destinations, but which were farther away. It took 1.5 hours to reach the first island in the tour. The boat crew...

    this island was inhabited by villagers, not for tourism

    Approaching Malcapuya island

    The boats dock on one side of the island. Then you'll have to take a short walk to the other side, where the nice beach is.

    I use Boy because I worked on quite a few ships and that was what most Captains called them. To be fair, a few of them also said boo-we though. It's just one if those words like Caribbean where it's not uncommon to hear it said 2 different ways, though I'd like to hear from someone who's been to the Caribbean on how the locals pronounce it...

    I always thought the boo-ee was just used in America, and the real world pronounced it boy.
