EK Adventure

Last Saturday, my friend Nikka had her birthday celebration on EK. Ironic how she celebrated her first official year as an adult in an amusement park! And how everyone was so game and so excited about it! Glad to have friends as childish as I am. Haha. So anyway, our EK trip was long overdue, something we planned 2 years ago over pizza. There's something about me and my college friends. Our plans hardly ever happen so I was really excited for this! Anyway, it's such a challenge to put to words all that has happened that day. It started when the sun was beating down on us and I promised myself not to ride water rides then found myself in the Jungle Log as first ride, looking for aircon as our refuge, the lunch, the games, going crazy over Rio Grande rain or shine, backing out of Space Shuttle ride, the feeling of losing your heart on EKstreme, being dragged and pep talked for the Space Shuttle ride, actually riding it (!!!!!), the fireworks and all the serious/funny/happy stories in the car on the way home!

 Hi Franciiiiis! :">

 Just a side story, all my friends now that I am a scaredy cat so it's no surprise that I backed out of riding the roller coaster for the first time even though I had prepared myself for it already. Four of us stayed behind and watched about 10 sets of roller coaster rides while deciding whether to go for it or not. And since it's such a shame that I have never tried it before, I decided to give it a go and ask my friends to drag me into it the second time. It was dark already when they decided to ride it again and I was so ready to back out (again) but after some dragging and lots and lots of pep talk I actually did it! *pats self on the back*

 First batch of brave souls!
 Hahaha faces guys! :))

 The magic ziplock that contained all our treasures aka wallets and blackberry's and iPhone's and cameras 

 It's my second time already to ride the EKstreme so I was braver this time! This is when we were still all brave and happy and smiling....
 Then we started to regret our decision...
And it all ends with the "oh my gosh I'm shaking" moment! 
 Yay, we did it! 

 Space Shuttle pep talk happening at the back! HAHA


Love, Paola <3
