Muljadi Pinneng Sulungbudi (Indonesia)
After finishing my PADI Open Water diving course in 2004, I did my 6th logged dive at a very famous diving spot in Alor called ”Kal’s Dream” and that was when I knew I had fallen in love with Alor and it’s underwater beauty. Two months later, I bought my first underwater camera and have since never left it behind when I go diving. Living in Kupang is an advantage for me as I get to explore all the diving sites in Nusa Tenggara Timur (East Nusa Tenggara). I have done more than two hundred dives all over Nusa Tenggara Timur and more than half of them were in Alor. Exploring the beautiful waters of Indonesia from the East as in “Raja Ampat” to the far Western point of Indonesia, “Pulau Weh”. I always try to record the underwater beauty of Indonesia in frames and photographs, but I realise that mere photos can never capture faithfully the true paradise we have in Indonesia.
