ADEX 2006 Asia Dive Expo Report

>> [home] [gear] [travel] [photo contest results] [fins night] [misc photos] <<

Originally planned as a Wetpixel get-together, Lena planned a dinner at Jumbo on Saturday night, which ended up ballooning out into 21 people. We played musical tables a couple of times before getting our food, which was quite good. After dinner, the Scubazoo boys (Simon Christopher, Jason Ives, and Matthew Oldfield), Peter Mooney, Tony Wu, Stephen Wong, and Jim ended up at a bar in Clarke Quay. I've been asked for the photo of Peter Mooney falling off of a bench and onto the sidewalk outside (while losing a shoe), but I missed the moment. He was, however, nice enough to re-enact it for me, and the resulting photo is below. :)

I had a great time meeting everyone out in Singapore, and I definitely want to go back to ADEX again.

There were lots of media folk at ADEX as well, including magazines, film crews for hire, and websites.
