Remembering 2010: Marking 102 Dives with video

Probably the best investment I made this year was for a decent underwater video camera. I accumulated over 42GB worth of raw underwater footage and I must say that documenting my dives is easily the most rewarding experience this year, perhaps ever! As a volunteer for WWF Philippines I also donate all my videos to their coral triangle efforts.

So here they are, my top diving vids for 2010:

*Viewing advice*
Watching all of these videos could take a while. If you have time to spare, do grab a bag of chips and a drink. Enjoy!

Do you like this Pawikan? If so,

My friend Andrian Lee runs the backend for the WWF’s donations. For those of you thinking that donations can only be done via credit card, you will be surprised to know that they also accept deductions from your Bancnet ATM, a more viable option since not everybody has a credit card. You can opt to do a monthly recurring donation (you can specify the amount) OR you can do a one time donation.

Donors do get special benefits — passes to film showings sponsored by the WWF, first dibs to events such as cleanup dives, coastal cleanups and the like.

If you think this Pawikan is cute, why not donate a few pesos or so every month? If you don’t donate, you’re probably an evil person with no friends. This Pawikan will also die. By your hands.

A convenient way to win 2 highly coveted tickets to Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”

I was floored when I got a call from C&G asking if I would like to take part in promoting this event. I’ve seen him work his magic on the Internet but it will be quite different when you see it in person.

So here’s the deal. I have two extra tickets to Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth this coming June 8 2010. See him live. Listen to him talk about global warming. Maybe have a photo with him. Post it on Facebook. Get comments.

June 8 2010
SM Mall of Asia
4:00 PM

(Remember that June 8 is a weekday!)

These tickets are expensive, so I’m giving these away to two individuals who can do the following:

  1. Go to this post.
  2. Read it.
  3. Leave a reaction. Leave many more. The two people with the best insight and can converse with me there win. Also make sure you leave a valid name and email address or contact number.
  4. Yes, I know the “best” is relative. But so are the tickets. They’re relatively expensive. If comments don’t get approved quickly, please be patient as I am usually out during the day.
  5. I’ll close the conversation before midnight, this Monday, 11:59 PM May 24 2010.

Good luck and see you there!
