Myra here.

It is Tuesday once again. Time for Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. Letter this week is H and so I share photographs from our recent Helmet Diving Adventure while we were in Boracay a month ago.

H is for Helmet Diving

When I chanced upon a good friend while in Boracay, she mentioned how much fun she had helmet-diving. Naturally, we had to check it out for ourselves. The idea of being underwater with all the fishes and corals seemed really exciting.

My husband, however, suffers from motion sickness. The boat ride alone which led us to the helmet-diving spot made him quite dizzy.

My eleven-year-old daughter thankfully took after me. She never had any issues with heights or depths or traveling for that matter. And so she enjoyed being around all the lovely fishes underwater.

While it proved to be a not-so-pleasant adventure for my husband who had to stay back at the hotel all day nursing a huge headache, I am still glad that we did this together as a family.

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Singapore. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she serves as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads or meeting up with her book club friends, she is smashing that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life.
