First Skydiving Experience
After doing the highest bungee jump in the world in Macau, I want to do something more daring and what could it possibly be other than the adrenaline rush and heart-stopping skydiving!!!!! It was one of the highlights of my tour that time.

I chose Tandem Cairns for my first Skydiving. This was the cheapest with good reviews based on my research and I booked this before going to Cairns, so there’s no turning back!
And so the day came and I was ready for it. Bring it on!
We went to the skydiving site, registered and gave us instructions. I’m on the last batch and have to wait for the first batches to finish first.
I noticed there are two batches of skydiving instructors, they take turns every flight. So when it’s my turn, I guess my instructor was already tired. I just hope he doesn’t forget to pull out the parachute in time! Haha.
the worst feeling I had. Just thinking whether you’ll still be alive after this or not. Haha just kidding.
After waiting for few hours, it’s now our turn to skydive! I’m so excited and a bit nervous.
They first interview me for the video compilation purposes..
On my way to the plane..
This is what it looks like inside the plane..
This is my partner, he’s in charge of my life at this time.
I was already feeling a bit nervous this time. I can already see that we’re already high above the ground.
I can already see clouds. Oh my, I’m about to piss my pants off!
My instructor told me that we’re only half way through. I just laughed off the nervous feeling building inside me.
Okay, they’re telling us to get ready because we’re almost there. I now got my serious trying not to piss or shit my pants off face.
At this time, If I remember it correctly, I was about to tell my instructor that I’m backing off, but then I thought I will look like a fool if I did. So what the hell, let’s do this!
There comes the first diver. OMG the transition was like only 5 seconds for the next one to go after.
Alright, We’ll be the third one to jump. I’m ready!
And it all comes to this.. I can’t feel anything by this time. Just my heartbeat pumping really hard.
And there we go..
For few seconds, my heart stopped.
How awesome is that!
After around 45 seconds of having adrenaline rush from the free fall, the parachute pops out..
I was supposed to land at the beach side but there were no slots left for that jump. But hey, this view is still an awesome view!
After the skydive, I could not remember much of what happened and I had that adrenaline feeling vibrating through out my body for few minutes.
I was really happy doing this challenge for myself and for the extraordinary experience.
I’ll definitely going to do this again!
