Although I’ve filmed in Kuala L, Malacca Penang, and hung out in Langkawi a bit, I do find my way off the beaten track. Who would have thought that I could find my way to this off the beaten track? Jalan Taman Tasik in Taiping? What’s there to do, you might ask. Well you stare at the mountain until you can’t take it anymore. You then stare at the lake. If that doesn’t rock your boat, sit on a bench and count how many cars pass in an hour. Or you do what makes a lot of sense and eat. I’m a sucker for satay. - @bobbychinn

This marks the end of my takeover on @natgeoasia. Thanks everyone for following along! #bobbychinn

It’s a little different when you are growing up watching a person on your TV to find yourself working together. And I can honestly say, he’s the exact same guy he is on tv as he is when he’s filming a tv show 😂 I can’t make this stuff up! It’s like marriage is the number 1 cause for divorce... Seriously I liked him on TV and even more in person. @davidroccosvita needs an interactive show! A true gentlemen with a gentle soul. - @bobbychinn

Tonight is the FINALE of #CelebChefEastVsWest on Nat Geo People - in which I'll be starring as the guest judge! Don't forget to tune in at 9:20pm HKT, 8:20pm BKK/JKT!

Outside Brickfields Flower Market. The cool thing about shooting a travel cookery show, is visiting the markets. Any market. It’s the fast track to getting to understand a people and a place) it’s all generally unscripted. However, just for safety, we get a brief instruction from director extraordinaire - ‘have fun we got 45 minutes so go do your thing’. So we do. We do everything parents tell their children not to do. We touch, we play, we move things around, we wander off, we smell, we put stuff in our mouths that we have never seen before with an undying urge to figure out what it tastes like, somehow we get praised for it. It’s nice to be a chef!

It’s not a typical day for me to take a couple of grown men to a flower market. However these aren’t your typical alpha males. It’s like hanging out with brothers from a different mother. But don’t them smiles fool you, as this is their downtime with me. They are highly competitive professionals. This is the culinary TV worlds version of #serenawilliams vs #venuswilliams.

Thanks all for the amazing week here with you! I look forward to all the great oceanographic exploration you will all get up to in the future. Its been a wonderful week to share on instagram story with you from the Melges 24 World Championships! Sailing is an incredible way to learn how dynamic the wind, waves, and tides are on our earth. To me, the ocean feels like the biggest, most complex and fascinating personality on earth. Share stories of your own experiences - this planet is ours together. Signing off for now, and to keep following along with your favorite submarine pilot, keep in touch with me! @theerikabergman .

Happy world oceans day!!!!! We love the glass sponge reefs of Howe Sound, British Columbia. Here, there are reefs made of silica, the same thing as glass! They are 4-5 feet tall, decades or centuries old, and filter bacteria as nutrients. One small reef can filter enough water to fill an Olympic size swimming pool in 60 seconds!
On this dive in the Stingray 500 we found lost and abandoned prawn traps in the sponge gardens. It's a bummer to see so much waste in our natural underwater habitats, but there's good news! Every time we find a new bed of sponge, we can try to protect it with "no-take" zones. This keeps the reef healthy and productive.

My favorite part of being an explorer and submarine pilot is learning how to be a mentor to young women who want to grow up to be marine engineers or submarine pilots! That's why a few years into being a sub pilot I started Girls Underwater Robot Camp, it's 3 days of soldering, acrylic welding, mission planning and ROV piloting. I've learned so much from the girls who come to the program. For 3 years we've run our biggest program for underserved youth @hillsboroughcountypublicschool among programs around the world. I can't wait to hire these youmg women on day as my co-pilots. Check out more @theerikabergman and @thegeecs. These girls are rad!! .

Ever wonder what it's like on a submarine dive? On one special dive in our sub, the Stingray 500, an enormous school of perch came rushing out of the darkness right at us and suddenly we were surrounded by the flashing scales of hundreds of these little fish! It's dark underwater, so fish, sharks, and other sea creatures often use our big, bright lights to hunt in.

It's like an aquarium in reverse! The fish are free to wander and the three of us in the sub are stuck in the "people tank" :) .

Goodbye Surface World! Hello ocean.
My name is erika, I'm a SUBMARINE pilot @aquaticasubs and I'm taking over for the next few days to share stories from the deep! Today is International World Environment Day so get ready for some fun facts - the ocean isn't always blue! On a submarine dives in Howe Sound, B.C. we find that there is so much plankton in the water that it turns emerald green!
