Saturday Snapshot - 4th August 2012

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

Below are the photos I snapped when I went for a holiday in Mabul Island, Sabah. An island known for its proximity to the splendid diving and snorkeling spot, near to Sipadan (one of the best in the world). My stay at Mabul Island  was made memorable by the picture perfect island, the humble and friendly people and also the amazing underwater creatures. The island was so far remote from the hustle and bustle of city life that time basically stood still. Hope you like the pictures posted below:

This is the lodge that I stayed for the night in Mabul Island, perched above crystal clear green water =)

Tranquility that's hard to describe, thus a snapshot to remind me of that very moment and place that was picture perfect

Plenty of corals and fish 

Sun set observed from our lodge, Billabong scuba

More pictures are in my newly started travel blog, Happy Saturday to all.


  1. What a beautiful area. I love the colors in the one with the green water. That does look like such a peaceful place.

  2. Never heard of any of the place names you mention! I am definitely geographically challenged. Those photos depict a gorgeous setting however, and I am extremely jealous!
    I'd love it if you would stop by and come see my pic for today.

    1. The island is part of Borneo, Malaysia. =) If you love diving you really must go there. Its awesome. Thanks for dropping by.

  3. I love that sunset, so beautiful and peaceful. It must be wonderful to look back on!

  4. Looks like there's a storm rolling in in that second photo. That would be quite an experience.

    The water is beautiful, and it looks like a place you could easily spend forever.

    Here's my Saturday Snapshot. Happy weekend!
