So I finally did it! It took me one full year to be mentally prepared to do this… seriously!
When I learned from my friend Shaun Ng there is static line jump in Segamat, Johor I decided it’s time to go for it.
Immediately, I blasted a text message to all of my friends I thought would be interested on my iPhone. And only Nic answered my crazy skydiving offer. (he had a lot of second thoughts and ‘what ifs’ but unlike me, he sure didn’t take a whole year to prepare!)
So we both went for it. A couple of weekends prior to the skydiving activity, Nic and I went for theory training at the instructor’s house in Cheras. Learned how a parachute functions, what to do in case of emergencies, briefing on exiting the plane, working the parachute and landing on the drop zone, etc. That took about 6 hours.
Thus 16th April, Saturday came. And off we go…
I felt like Iron Man so to speak LOL okay seriously, I felt like I’ve conquered a new mental barrier and it was a personal breakthrough for me.
After the two successful jumps, all of the skydiving participants – 9 in all – received the certificate for completion of training and our own skydiving license!
This is something I’d love to do again in the near future. 🙂
