Goodbye to August 2014

It's the last day of August 2014 and as tradition on this blog has it, it's time to say goodbye and look back at this August edition.
The weather was really good, lots of sunshine and sunny days and just occasionally some rain. An excellent August! Almost as good as they come. There were also exceptional good dive conditions in case you are a diver, whale shark sightings at the beginning of the month and great viz right now!

Koh Samui

For me it was a very busy month, which started me still being in South Korea for a PADI IDC, PADI IE and specialty instructor training. It was my second time in Korea and I really enjoyed, again!
After having been home for just 3 days, I was en route again and am currently on Gili Air in Indonesia, having just completed a PADI IDC, PADI IE and am now in the middle of Specialty Instructor training. Next month I will be running my first ever race in Indonesia, 7th September the Bromo half marathon is on my schedule!

Due to the busy schedule, the only dinner I had on Samui was at Kobori in Maenam, an excellent Japanese restaurant. Well worth a visit!

Thanks for checking in this month and hope to see you back in September! I should be spending some time now on Samui, until mid October and am looking forward to it.

French boy, 5, died on Koh Phangan after box jelly fish sting

By now the news has gone around the world about the French 5 year old boy who died on Koh Phangan's Bottle beach after being stung by a box jelly fish. It's terrible sad news but I do hope that this will be a wake up call to the General Managers of hotels around Koh Samui and Koh Phangan and the local authorities, to put up warning signs and vinegar stations on the beaches around the islands.
A Thai work group, with whom I met in 2010, have immediately come down to visit the islands and help with dealing with the issue and hopefully they can convince local authorities on how to proceed with prevention and raise awareness.

Over the last few years I have on a regular base written about box jelly fish, and this post from 2012 has been the most popular and most visited post on my blog. More than double the amount of visits compared to my 2nd popular blog post. On my dive blog, I have also made various posts about box jelly fish, please visit here to read more.

It's not about 'scare mongering' but awareness can go a long way and hopefully help prevent situations with such a tragic outcome. Stinger suits and vinegar go a long way. Although the use of vinegar is under discussion at the moment, it's still the recommended way of action for immediate on the spot treatment.


Box jelly fish treatment flow chart

IN CASE OF A BOX JELLYFISH STING:

1. Begin CPR if required and call for medical assistance
2. Immediately pour vinegar over sting area for at least 30 seconds
3. After using the vinegar, place cold packs or ice on the wound to ease the pain and reduce skin damage
4. Seek medical attention

OTHER JELLYFISH SPECIES:

Bluebottle (with single main tentacle)- Remove tentacles, immerse sting area in hot water or apply cold pack*, do NOT use vinegar
All others - Remove tentacles, apply cold pack to sting area

the morning glory plant found along the coast throughout the tropics is at best a mild analgesic and not recommended.

once the vinegar has done its job and the threat of envenomation ceased, the pain can last a few hours and can be managed locally with ice packs.

once the pain has subsided there is a risk of infection so the sting should be treated much like a burn.

depending on the approach you want to take, cortisone based cream, vitamin e cream, calendula, pawpaw etc could all be good in keeping the wound clean, avoiding secondary infection and aiding healing of the scarring.

The vinegar will not stop the the venom already in the wound but will immobilize any other stingers and prevent them from discharging. Try to rub the remaining tentacles off your body with a credit card like object, not with your fingers!

Any reports from box jelly fish sightings in Thailand or the South East Asian region can be reported to DAN Asia Pacific who are keen to collect information about these stings in Thailand. Please contact John Lippmann through their website.

Another good source of information is the box jelly fish in Thailand blog.

To prevent your children from box jelly fish stings, get these stinger suits

It's still dark on Koh Samui this morning but a fairly sunny day is expected with scattered clouds. Current temp at 5am is 27C

It's going to be a busy day for me today, we're about to leave Sacheon-myeon in South Korea and dive further up North, towards the 38th Parallel, on Namae-ri beach.

Yesterday some a fairly cloudy day around Samui with some rain towards the end of the afternoon. Max temp reached 31C

Gangneung, South Korea

Yesterday evening we strolled along the busy beach in Gangneung for the third time during our stay and had some great seafood dinner there. Gangneung is the bigger city near Sacheon-myeon in South Korea where we are staying and was Olympic city in 1988

The forecast predicts sunnier days and a lot less wind and rain for the next 7 days. Hope you will be able to enjoy it!
