What friends are for


John, Rene and Larry were indeed happy boys in Truk with Tech Asia last week. Larry, always thinking about his friends knew that Malcolm Ward would be here while he was not, so he cunningly arranged a new beautiful new regulator case for Malcolm. I think the “Hello Kitty” regulator case could be a big hit in the tech diving community!

Computers delivered to school on Verde Island.


Allan, Rhuby and Paul went over to Verde Island to deliver a nice gift for the school. EL Galleon/Asia Divers have been doing several projects at the school and this was the latest one. Daniel Ninofranco,  ANTONIO Gacusan,  Joshua Dolotina and Julio Endara owner of Volenday  kindly gave the computers to the San Agapito high school. Julio is a member of the B&B Manila which is where Allan and Paul met him. This will be a huge benefit for the kids and the teachers.
