“… Sea Gypsea? Bajau laut? palauh? Those are the names referring to the same ethnic. This ethnic group occasionally move their ‘homes’ and usually near the waters of Sabah. It has been a great attraction to tourists in Mabul island when professional photographers see them as rare subjects for their shoot. Mabul island is ‘heaven’ for professional photographers as it always portrays its unique genuine authenticity of its people’s culture and lifestyle.

I believe with sharing the beauty of the amazing under water life, it would (at least) sooth anger, spark love and also spread the love to the world and also among people….” – scuba Jeff
