It was so nice not having to wake up at 530am in the morning for the dives today. Am I on a holiday or what?! We'd only dive in Mabul and Kapalai today so the first one started at 830am and only 5 minutes boat ride away from the rig. I love being this close to the dive sites. I didn't even need to pop my anti-barf pills! 
I love the house reef in Kapalai. We saw a lot of lion fish, nudibranchs, even a huge group of jacks! Same with Mabul. Literally a few hundred metres away from the rig and good diving. Since we only did 3 dives today. We finished quite early and I did another dive under the rig to finish my rescue dive course. It was kind of a scary dive because the current was strong and it was getting dark. We ended up ascending about 50 metres from the elevator and failed to swim towards it due to the strong current. Finally we gave up and decided to swim towards the ladder at the other end of the rig. So we got up through the back, and the kitchen and compressor area with our BCDs and all, shivering at the same time. So glad we made it back to the rig safely. Phew!
