Sabah Episode 3: King of the Trampoline

I think it the light of the Olympics, and seeing how the men gymnast did the trampoline, I decided to try my hands on a smaller and rounder version of the trampoline while I was at the Kinarut Adventure Park...
It was a fun day out with the gang going on the high rope challenge as well as doing the flying fox before we take a joy ride along the beach on ATV (All Terrain Vehicles) and ended the day with kayaking in the sea.
Beginning with the high rope challenge, it kinda freaked me a little me out since I have some issues with wobbly ladders as well as height so I braved myself, amongst the many ladies and went up to the top to start my "routine". We had all sorts throwing our way and I was most freaked over the planked bridge that has this see-saw that you have to go up and down in mid air to cross over... Though that was, to me the hard one, I loved the rest of it as NS had prepared me for the worst...

The strap is so tight, look at how it squeezed my ass out.

Then the flying fox. I don't understand why we can't take a lift up but have u climb up another wobbly ladder... It's pretty scary as the ladder is swaying from side to side like some coconut tree in the Bahamas while I climb up steadily... As I arrived the top, the guy pulled up the bar for me to hold before I "fly" down...
Guy: Sudah Bersedia
Me: Belum...
Took me a round 15 seconds (only) to get seated and be pushed off the ledge and soar pass the trees... It was fun no doubt and I, the cam whore took millions of pictures of me coming down and doing all sorts of poses Ala America's Next Top Model 5 where they did the superhero shot.

My superhero pose... Without the Mia Ferrow haircut that is.

Cassandra dear... you learned from the best...


Once we are done with all things high, we go even higher. Being as thin as a rake, slim and slender, nice and tender, I don't have much upper body strength (albeit lower body body strength), I don't really have faith that I could climb up to the top of the rock climbing wall. But being me, I must try and guess what, I reached the top and I was more than glad... but that was the simple one when I got the the moderate one, I got only half way up... My nerves got the better of me... again...


So we then had time to kill while waiting for the ATVs to be prepped, I jumped onto the trampoline to have a go at all my poses... As I landed in Sabah, the gang has already named me the posing king and so I showed them what I could do on a trampoline... Before you know it...
All of them came up for a try out to beat me...

Best pose yet...

More of my fabulous poses...


Cheh... Betul...
After a round of 15 minutes on an ATV... Mine rosak halfway, we went kayaking in the sea and we even saw one miserable Jellyfish... But the best part was to kayak out into the open... You really feel sorta liberated....
And before I left...


Very Mary Poppins kan...
