Anyway, as I said, it's one of those things I wanted to try once. The main wakeboarding park was a large circular lake where you basically choose to wakeboard kneeling or standing and you're supposed to go around the lake again and again until you fall off. I could already imagine falling off, then having to swim to the side, and worse, walking back to the main area carrying your wakeboard. There is no easy way back, except not to fall off. Well, that's surely a challenge. So as soon as I saw this, I kinda changed my mind and thought of going to have a massage instead, hahaha.
But lo and behold, there was now a beginner's park, which basically holds a slower line and inclusive of an instructor. And as if calling me, despite my quick turnaround, there was a class starting at 7:30pm in the evening, just less than an hour from now. Okay, now, I think this is a sign. I must try it, otherwise, I'll regret it. I already came by once before on my last trip and also chickened out. Instead, we just went to the floating obstacle course, which I know now, having tried wakeboarding, was a bigger challenge. Anyway, that story later.
|Try #1. Fail! Did I leave my wakeboard behind? Hahaha|
Fear always gets the better of me, and if I trust myself more and just simplify things, then I can actually overcome that fear. I think part of what drives me to do this is that I want to prove to myself that I can overcome my fear. And little by little, I get to do it. Well, I'm glad I did it! It was great fun! Would I do it again? For this, I probably would, haha.
After a hard day's work, we headed to the cafe to try the popular Laing Pizza. It was yummy!
This time, we stayed at the container rooms, basically rooms made of old shipping containers. It's brilliant! Basic but comfy. There's even airconditioning and TV. CWC is a great idea, one of the creations of an ambitious young government leader. Wish we have a lot more of these people. This way, we get to boost tourism, which in turn benefit the communities directly.
