However his dedication to the diving industry does not end there. Hj Syed is also Vice President for the Malaysia Scuba Diving Association, PADI IDC Staff Instructor, an active member of the PADI Youth Advisory Committee and recipient of many PADI awards over the years including Outstanding Contribution to the Youth Diving Education.

“I am actually very honoured that the Government via the Ministry of Tourism extend the opportunity for me to contribute to my country, Malaysia,” says Hj Syed.
