PADI Certified Young Man!

So handsome my son

He passed it! He passed it! Phew!

He didn't do much of reading of his manual and I was worried how he would fare at his exams. I told him that if he failed, he will have to pay the THB12,200 himself! He was nervous, I tell ya.

I was so glad and really proud of him. He passed and the instructor said that he is a confident diver. Of course lah! My son. I was almost pissing in my pants, earlier.

I think scuba diving is a very special experience and he is very fortunate to be able to experience that at a young age. I hope he will become a serious diver because it gives him many opportunities to see the beauty of God's creation. Who knows he might even pick up a career related to scuba diving.

Well done, Joel! I am proud of you. My son.

Well done and congratulations Joel. When you can tell me more about your experience. How did it feel to see the ocean from a totally different perspective?
