I DID IT !!!

FEAR !!!
Nothing but mind numbing … muscle freezing fear !!!

It’s 2pm on Saturday and I’m driving to pick up Dilly for our challenge at Sunway Lagoon.

We’ve been doing challenges as part of our “Red FM 60K Music Takeaway” campaign and for the final “Gone In 60 Seconds” challenge … the bosses picked THE BUNGY @ SUNWAY LAGOON !!!

OK … so I call Dilly to tell her I’m picking her up … she says she’s not ready … that’s not good. I’m already so nervous … it’s amazing I can still figure out which pedal does what in my car !

So … she’s NOT ready !!! WHAT DO I DO ?!

I head to Sunway Giza … and puke my guts out !!! Butterflies in my stomach all taking a “porcelain cruise” right now … and do I feel better ?

HELL NO !!!

So … I pick her up … we drive to Sunway Lagoon … and meet up with all the listeners who won all-area passes (thank you Sunway Lagoon) and we head to the …

EXTREME PARK !!!

… we’re walking … and walking … and then I see the suspension bridge … and then … I SEE IT !!!

THE BUNGY PLATFORM !!! … I CAN’T DO THIS !!!

But I’m not gonna chicken out as well !!! No way am I gonna give Terry bragging rights !!! … so up the stairs I go to the suspension bridge … and you know how they say “once you get there … you’ll be fine” … that’s all a load of BULL !!!


We sign in … get our weights … and strap in and who goes first ?

DILLY !!!

Before the Red FM group … we see other people jumping off … and it doesn’t seem real until Dilly steps unto the ramp and then …

5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … BUNGY !!!

… and her head disappears below the bridge and then I know … THIS IS FOR REAL !!!

… all I can hear is Dilly’s screams !!!

I’m freaking out here … who’s next ? It’s Terry and Aly in tandem … she’s freaking out !!! Not helping my nerves I tell ya !!! … and they jump … Aly screams hysterically !!!

AND I’M NEXT !!! O … M … G !!!!

They strap me in … and I say “I want water” !!!

WHAT AM I SAYING ?!?! … it’s weird what comes outta your mouth when you’re freakin’ out !!!

… and then I’m standing on the ramp … DAMN IT’S HIGH UP !!!

… and then they start counting … WHAT THE **** AM I DOING HERE ?!?!!?

… 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1 … BUNGY !!!


… and I jump … I see the Sunway hotel … I see a the Red FM listeners … I see water … BOOOM !!!


I’VE DONE IT !!! I’M SOAKING WET … BUT I DID IT !!!

What an experience … now I wanna do it again !!! Wanna join me ?
