Day in the Life of Candy
Hi, Candy Girls!
Do you remember my blog about my BDG? Just wanted to share that I’ve finally fulfilled one of my lifelong dreams, and it surpassed all of my expectations!
The Partner in Crime: One of my best friends, Blanche
She was a little iffy about doing it originally. But since she’s a big thrill-seeker like me, she agreed to do it! (Can you see her scaredy-cat smile in the photo? She did the jump before I did so she was really nervous.)
The Support Group: Our high school kabarkadas, Tin and Leigh
These two were part of our reverse bungee posse in Singapore, but they could not imagine plunging headfirst down the tower. (Who could blame them?) During the actual jump, they took lots of videos and photos of us which I am eternally thankful for.
Unlike my friend who was aided by a friendly Pinoy, some sungit guy helped me with my equipment. I guess I should thank him for helping me forget about my pre-jump jitters (I was momentarily distracted by his crankiness). Plus, he was really concerned about keeping me alive, so safety—not niceties—came first.
I was crooning to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ “Free Fallin’” weeks before the jump, so I tried humming it to clear my mind. However, the observation deck’s thumping music was so loud that I couldn’t complete the whole song. In hindsight, it was a wise tactic by the tower because the party music easily masked the screams of the spectators as the bungee jumpers took the leap (which made it less scary for us, haha!).
Outside I was all smiles, but when the cute Aussie guy started counting down “Five… four… three… two… one…” behind me, my heart nearly jumped off my chest!
The fear lasted as quick as the scream I let out once I jumped off. (See my actual jump here.) It was instantly replaced by the bliss of floating in a silent abyss. I didn’t even close my eyes when I was descending down the tower because I wanted the moment to last. Of course, this experience lasted for only a couple of minutes, but the thrill lasted more than a week.
It was ultimately an awesome experience worth repeating. I wonder where I can do it next…
