We had a weekend trip from Manila to Sabang in Mindoro, Philippines and I had two dives with South Sea Divers. Here is something what we saw on the dives. 

Tiny anemone crab.
Same crab.
Big puffer.

There was lot of small reef fishes in some places.

Our second dive spot was The Hill. Before the dive we heard the place is good for muck diving and there should be lots of small staff. 

Striped catfishes hide between in the corals. 
Pistol shrimp keeping the nest clean and goby as a door man. 
Feather coral.
Seahorse on the bottom. 
Same seahorse.
Flabellina nudibranch.
Two nudis.
Same nudis.
Another kind of nudibranch.
Blue-spotted stingray hiding. 
When you go close enough this happens always.
Few trumpet fishes.
Fire clownfish. 
So I did two nice dives in Sabang area. Especially the second one was interesting, because the dive spot was new for me.
