Skiing and Snowboarding at PerisherSunday, July 29, 2012
We had our first ski trip ever at Perisher on Snowy Mountains not too long ago with a group of fun-loving friends. It was so much fun in spi...
Haha, yes, I'm very optimistic indeed.
Anyway, here's presenting the wonderful people who embarked on this amazing journey with us. There were 3 skiers and 4 snowboarders in total. We didn't know one another very well prior to this trip, but I'm glad we all got along pretty well.
Check out the spectacular view and our snowboarding friends in the foreground!
I would love to try snowboarding one day, but the fear of falling accompanied by the physical pain thereafter really scares me. I really applaud our snowboarder friends for their perseverance and courage. LOL!
The lessons on the 2nd and 3rd day were significantly better and before long, I could ski, not without some trepidation though. I guess I'm generally more risk averse, so speeding down a slope is not really my kind of thing. I love to be in control, so I guess you could call me a control freak.
That said, JW still prefers rockclimbing, but I would love to ski again some time. How I wish I could ski in Singapore, but alas, you and I both know that it'll only happen in our wildest dreams.
We also took the opportunity to explore the rest of the ski resort by taking the ski lift right up to the top!
The slopes at the top are not meant for skiing but wow, the view was absolutely breath-taking. We literally felt like we were on top of the world.
If you thought that was it, you're wrong. The blackouts continued for the next 2 days and the frequency only increased with time. We finally decided to throw in the towel and moved to another house provided by the real estate company.
Well, no regrets, until JW decided to frighten us with his remarkable apple-slicing techniques.
We took turns to cook breakfast and dinner everyday, but girls and boys, this is a negative demonstration of how you should slice an apple, so please do not try this at home ok? I have no doubt that JW will chop off his fingers one of these days, or even kill someone with that knife, but let's move on to happier thoughts now, shall we?
