Bungee jumping has been on my to-do list ever since I thought about the said list. I never actually wrote down the list; I just know the things that I want to do. So I decided that Macau be the first place that I will and have traveled outside the Philippines, because if going to bungee jump, I should jump from the highest. And I did. 17th September 2008, 338 meters high… I conquered Macau Tower.
At the view deck of the tower.
I would be lying if I say that I never felt any nervousness before I plummeted in the air. Just the glass-elevator ride going up the view deck of the tower is enough to shake one’s knees. Yes, fear is relevant – actually, that is what you need to conquer for you to finally take the plunge and experience that, more or less, ten seconds free-fall. A lot of people have asked me how did it feel during that seconds of free fall; it’s hard to put into words what I felt but I can clearly recall the thought that I had as I scream: m@*#f***er, those people who jumped off a building to commit suicide are so damn brave.
Given the chance that I find myself visiting Macau for the second time, I’m sure I would excitedly jump again. Here’s a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bttp3CacseE

wow,, super scary.. but i admire you for conquering your fear and made the leap from the tower.. i would love to visit macau someday.
thank you. i hope you’ll get to jump once you visit. 🙂
i don’t think so, hehe, i’m afraid of heights..
oh, i’m sorry to hear that. i was afraid of heights before… years ago. i got dizzy looking down from the 5th floor in our school. good thing i was able to get rid of it. 🙂
me too, i get dizzy whenever i look down.. well, maybe i would be able to conquer this fear in the future just like you..
Good for you! It takes a lot of courage to face one’s fears! 🙂
My bucket list doesn’t carry any such admirable things on it. I wish you well, however, in your endeavors. Having watched bungee jumping on the news and other programs on TV is quite alright with me. I can only imagine what would become of my torn rotator cuff upon reaching the bottom of the cord. OUCH!
i’m sorry to hear about your torn rotator cuff (that sounds serious)… but i’m sure your bucket list got wonderful things too. i wish you well also… thank you very much!
Not for me! But you obviously enjoyed it, so that is fantastic!
thank you. it’s pure awesomeness… you should try it! 🙂
