A year after my first visit to this island south of Manila, I returned in December 2000 with Ambrose Mong and Judy Wong, who have also undergone the BSAC Sports Divers course at Kg Glam diving club. During our five-day stay at Pisa resort run by Josie and husband Paul Evans, the sea was rough, the wind strong and my heart faint. Being a natural-born coward, I managed only two dives while Judy and Ambrose enjoyed all the other dives available.
On land, the breezy weather was invigorating, and I read through Virginia Woolf’s Second Common Reader. And like Rumi’s Poems which I read during last year’s stay in this island, every passage in the book was so underline-able.
