I can’t believe it. Highlight of my Philippines trip and I forget to put the pics here.
This was after our dive where we saw the seahorses I think…
Got up onto the boat, then our boatmen were like ‘whale shark…’
me: orh.. ok -so uninterested-
boatboy: WHALE SHARK!
me: but i can’t see it.. T_T
boatboy: THERE. THERE. -points in a distance-
me: -puts on my mask because I’m blind without it… -oh.. wow-
get this. in the mean time, everyone on the boat (well except Fabrice) has jumped into the water ok WTF.
fabrice: GET INTO THE WATER NOW
me: but i don’t wanna put my equipment on! I just took it off! I can see it from the boat
F: MASK. NOW!!!
And F jumps into the water and i’m like OKOKOK WAIT FOR ME YOU GUYS!!!
HOLY SHIT IT IS BREATHTAKING I CANT BELIEVE I WAS HAPPY LOOKING AT IT ON THE BOAT WTF.
Here’s a video!
Well after it went away, we came back onto the boat. then it came back, and F and I jumped back into the water! The other boats had left by then, so it was the two of us.
I has no snorkel, so I was basically bobbing up and down for breaths, luckily I can hold my breath for a bit hurrr. Also, swallowed sea water but in my head I was all “SEA WATER IS WORTH IT LOOK AT THIS ADORABLE THING”
It was about 5m long, so it’s an adolescent. So it came swimming towards F and I, so it knew we were there! And it kept coming closer and closer, I was honestly afraid that it’d nudge me and I’ll transmit my germs to it. It stopped about maybe, 3m away from us, and started to turn.
in my head: fuckk it’s def gonna bitchslap me with its tail…
BUT IT DIDN’T. somehow it figured that one tailwhip could kill us both (lol I kid) and it just wanted to parade itself in front of us I guess. I wished I could touch it but yea, self restraint…
Anyhoo, I was like.. TIME TO SELFIE!!
So that’s it. I HAVE A SELFIE WITH A WHALESHARK. Suck on it. I’ll get a better one next time. -cuddles the whaleshark in my head-
soooo adorable. can’t take it. with it’s tiny eyes at the side of its head.. hehehee
