|Prepare for blastoff!|
It's not like I'm extremely busy or anything, it just seems like everyday, before I realize it, it's time to sleep. Don't know if that made sense, but it's just how it is!
Last Friday my friends wanted to try the reverse bungee at clarke quay. I gladly obliged to go along for dinner, but no way in hell I'm paying money to scare the shit out of my pants. I've never been fond of amusement rides, mainly because I have motion sickness and all the unnecessary movements is literally hell for me.
They're (my friends) are a crazy bunch of people because they took both rides, 1 that shoots them up directly, and another which swings them from a ridiculously high place.
videos will be up when my friend finish editing it or something.
As you can see, they are shot really high up in the air spinning at the same time.
Then they took the swing, which has this really long ascending period.

The interesting thing about this ride is that the person riding has to press the trigger to go down. They described it as: "Because you're facing down, you're only supported by your seat harness and it feels like you're gonna drop out anytime." Damn, I get the shudders just thinking about it.
As they press the release they swing violently from the top to the other side, which is hard to describe or photograph, so have fun waiting for the video. (p.s. all these are snapshots from the videos)
We then went to Saizeriya at Liang Court for dinner and some of them were acting like drunkards even though not a single drop of alcohol was in sight.
This was an interesting outing with new additions to the group, I look forward to more of these.
