“Teman” – Sickle-Butterfly fish (pictorial recollections after snorkeling in Bali!)


"My friend Teman"

My first solo-trip abroad (outside of India) was at age 21 to the beautiful island of Bali!

One morning, after spending a lovely morning lazing in the sun… I took a snorkeling trip in Padangbai – and our fella here was my first visitor from the sea! I kept bumping into him as I snorkeled around for the couple of hours and so decided to keep him in my memories for ever. This is probably not an accurate drawing of the fish, but what I could recollect after coming to shore! Could someone suggest a name, for my friend here? ¬†Wikipedia tells me that (s)he is a Sickle-Butterfly fish, but I would much rather name him/her ‘Teman’ (meaning ‘Friend’ in Bahasa)

About Chiteisri: The Gypsy Diaries

Its a Fair Warning to all =) While there may be some things about me that everyone knows ... There will always be something about me which nobody can or ever will, figure out! But for a typical introduction - I am a former Law student from India, who is a writer and traveler at heart. I am 27 and have been to 28 countries (and counting) and this blog is a humble attempt at taking a part of my life, experiences, holidays, learnings and dreams to another world of imagination in cyber-space. I know that the world has its fair share of problems, and there is plenty to despair about out there. But I truly believe that this world can be diverse, plural and inclusive and yet one entity - humanity. I am the Dreamer, a lost soul - slowly finding her way back home i.e. to herself! I write. I read. I paint. I dream. I learn. I listen. I empathize. I travel, and no matter who or what I become - these I shall always do! https://chiteisri.wordpress.com/2012/04/11/defining-a-me-at-23/
