Gold Coast: A tick off the bucket list – Skydiving!

Skydiving in Gold Coast
I don’t even dare to take the rides at theme parks, so I don’t know how I found the courage for this impulse purchase – a skydive! My travel partner has been wanting to skydive for a long time, but everytime he was booked to do one, it rained. So he was understandly excited when he saw skydiving being one of the suggested activities in hotel guide at Halcyon House. Fate has it that Mauro, the hotel’s charismatic General Manager, was just as enthusiastic about skydiving, and promptly booked us for a skydive with Gold Coast Skydive.

Fear didn’t strike me until the moment they suited me up and got on the plane.
Me: Is this the height we gonna jump?
My tandem partner Tom: Nope, this is only 3,000 feet, and we are going to jump at 12,000 feet. This is only a quarter of the height we gonna jump.
At that moment, I was praying real hard. What da f*** did I just get myself into, I said to myself.

The scariest moment of my life came when we started to jump one by one. There was no turning back.

The freefall was quite cool, and I felt like Superman. Tom was awesome and uber experienced, and made it more fun.

Taking a moment to enjoy the scenery from above. I got to control the parachute for a while, though I got a little dizzy from the spinning when you pulled only on one side.

My first thought when I landed on the beach: “I’m hungry.” Good, I am back to normal LOL. The parting humor at the skydive centre left a smile on my face. No doubt this would be an experience I will remember for the rest of my life. I am SO happy I checked this off my bucket list! :)

Iceland – Aurora Borealis in Akureyri

Aurora Borealis in AkureyriI have heard so much about it, and witnessing the Northern Light (Aurora Borealis) in person for a first time was nothing sort of surreal. It was my first trip to Iceland, first visit to Akureyri, first night chasing the lights, and first time lucky, woohoo! The lights were so strong we could clearly see it dancing in the sky right in front of our naked eyes. I was freezing to death (blow wind, blow!) but this one-in-a-lifetime experience was worth every strand of standing hair on my body. More photos to come…wish me luck :)

xoxo from Iceland brrr…

i Light Marina Bay – Celebration of Life

i Light Marina Bay - CELEBRATION OF LIFE

CELEBRATION OF LIFE
JUSTIN LEE WITH DORIER ASIA PTE LTD
Part of i Light Marina Bay
Celebration of Life is a playful commentary on the role and value of traditional culture in our contemporary society, Through the use of Pop-art as a playful medium in this work, this installation celebrates Asian values in our modern society through a tongue-in-cheek manner. In this 3D projection installation for the ArtScience Museum, Justin playfully blends traditional Eastern iconography with modern-day symbols of our global capitalist culture. This approach suggests cultural resilience – the ability of Asian culture, to survive, to withstand, to endure, and to adapt to the changing contemporary society.
