Day of Adventures at SAFRA Yishun

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.

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?

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.

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!

Day of Adventures at SAFRA Yishun

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

Day of Adventures at SAFRA Yishun

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

Day of Adventures at SAFRA Yishun

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
