A pilot once ask me "Why would anyone want to jump out of a perfectly fine airplane?", implying that skydiving is just crazy. Or is he too chicken to try?
Then, I wasn't sure what was I thinking when I agreed to tried tandem jump. As I brought the news home to the girls, I was thinking they will probably chicken out and maybe provide me an excuse to reject the invitation. To my surprise I was greeted with multiple "YES!" with the utmost enthusiasm, Uh Oh...
This actually happened 3 years ago, there were Faye, Zoe, Yee, Kristy and me. Zoe and Yee are my sisters-in-law, Kristy is our common friends. 4 girls and 1 guy, and I'm the only nervous wreck, so embarrassing.
Anyhow, we did it, you jump, I jump, we all jump, and we survived. Did I regret it? No, it was actually kinda fun! The adrenaline rush and the thrill was a totally new experience. Would I do it again? Errr...let just leave it at "It's too expensive!"
Yee's video was chosen for this post because hers was the most interesting jump of us all with the craziest tandem instructor. A back flip exiting the plane, rotate right(can't even count how many times), rotate left(more?), followed by a perfect landing. I'm just glad I didn't have the same tandem instructor, I will probably puke my guts out if that's the case. By the way, you won't see Faye and I in this video because we were on the next plane up.
Anyway, it was Yee mentioning something about skydiving prompted me to dig out this 3 years old video. As I was watching this video, I pretty much relive the whole experience and wonder why didn't post this? Well, that's because I don't have a blog 3 years ago, ha!
*Edit - Added the same video on the blogger server because Vimeo server is a bit slow for some.
