A Memorable Trip

It was 10 o’clock when we were in the plane. After much waiting we finally boarded the plane to Thailand. This was going to be one of the most memorable trips of the year. We, the students of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Kota Kemuning, were going to do Scuba Diving and Snorkeling on this trip. It was the first time the school had taken any class for water sports. The students of class 4 Science 2 and 4 Science 3 were going together for this trip. The first day in Thailand went off smoothly. We relaxed on the beach and just generally chilled out. The next day we went for snorkeling on the beach. Though we had an expert along with us, we were still quite worried about doing this sport. We entered the water with a lot of fear but we emerged with the memory of an experience that would be etched in our minds forever. It took a while for us to get used to breathing underwater, but we all finally got the hang of it. We saw many kinds of fish in the water along with different types of corals. Some of us even held a sea cucumber in our bare hands and we almost forgot to breathe. Scuba Diving was on the agenda for the next day. Our anxiety levels were up again. In snorkeling we were on the surface of the water, but now we were going to reach the sea bed. We were going to the bottom of the sea. That was a whole new ball game altogether. Again breathing was a problem. But the instructors guided us very gently.

Once we were on the sea bed, we took in the sights around us. We looked and marveled at marine life. It was so beautiful and peaceful. Our experience was marvelous. I actually felt like I am an intruder in this silent world. At the end of it, I would like to thank to all of my teachers for taking so much care of us. This trip left us with an unforgettable memories. We had the time of our lives. I'm certain no other trip will match up to this one ever. This is indeed an memorable trip.
