Conquered my first rock climbing expedition! I accompanied Darren to his video interview at SAFRA Yishun Country Club over the weekend, and had an opportunity to try out their different activities at the one-day Open House. Boy, did I have fun!
Activities available at the club include rock climbing, Canopy Challenge Walk, Indoor Air Weapon Range, bowling and a gorgeous swimming pool. On normal days, one needs to be a member of the various sports and shooting clubs and pay equipment rental fees, but these were waived during the Open House at a nominal entrance fee.
Darren doing his video interview True to himself, he’s still full of crap on TV lol
Blooper He looks so cute even with a blooper :)
Now my turn to have fun! I was particularly looking forward to check our the shooting range since I was in the school air rifle team many, many, many years ago. I wondered if I had lost my touch after such a long time; I wouldn’t be surprised if I can’t even remember how to load a rifle!
I better not lose to these young girls and uncle. Stress.
Sexy shooting. I may point my rifle the wrong way.
Will I be able to hit the bull’s eye?
Pellets and Target Board
My Arnold Schwarzenegger loading his pack Will he be able to protect me? Or will I be protecting him instead?
Aim, and shoot! We were give 6 pellets per round
Getting back my ‘report card’ Trepidation filled as I awaited my target board to come back
I think I found my next profession – hired killer LOL I was pleasantly surprised at my results – all bull’s eye! Looks like I haven’t lost my touch, haha. That said, think they must have tweaked the level to the easiest for the Open House. But I am still happy with this ego booster!
We went to check out the rock climbing wall and canopy walk next
The 25m wall is as tall as the trees. Glurp.
A lady climber made it to the top! Pose for photos!
The victory sign is a must
I think I saw Spiderman
My turn to climb the wall! This was my absolute first time, and as the station was closing I had no time to ponder, or pray since I recently broke my arms. I quickly scaled up the wall after this shot.
It was quite easy at first – maybe cos’ I chose the kids wall haha. Halfway up, I stole a peek downwards and momentarily got jelly feet. After that I was plastered to the wall like a moth for a good 3 minutes, deliberating whether to carry on or give up as I got lazy and found lesser grips as I went higher. And my poor nails!
I made it to the top! Not forgetting the victory sign
“Aunty, can you come down already? We want to go home.” Now you know why I made it to the top. I had 4 men including Darren screaming “Come on! You can do it!” below. It would be so embarrassing to give up. So I gritted my teeth and carried on. And broke two nails haha. I didn’t dare to tell Darren cos’ he will definitely slap me for being such a princess. But I am glad I did it!
In addition to rock climbing, the Adventure Sports Centre houses 2 sets of obstacle courses. They look fun but the queue was so long we didn’t want to wait.
The Cargo Net Bridge looks fun
A ‘Singing Rock’ harness – how cute!
Kudos to this lady on the Elvis Walk She was screaming all the way “My hands are very tired! I cannot anymore!” until everyone got worried she would fall. She made it across in the end, and I am proud of her! Wish I had a chance to try it…maybe next time
Someone obviously enjoyed himself :)
I wished we had brought along our swimming gear, cos’ the sunny weather was simply awesome for a cool dip in this gorgeous pool
We had a fun and healthy day out! It’s nice to have something healthy to do other than stuffing our faces silly with food. If we carry on with this, I have no doubt we will be gorgeously svelte creatures in no time heh :D
