SINGAPORE: Unfinished Business with GMAX

With no Melaka on my itinerary, I really did not want to go all the way down to Johor Bahru from KL. It does not make sense when you can simply land in Singapore and cross the border and voilà! Legoland! Legoland was the main destination. Singapore was really jut the stopover, but I had to do something, otherwise my budget and itinerary post for Johor would be too bloated if I charge all the transit expenses there. Fine. There is this one unfinished business I had with Singapore, and that is the GMAX.

I think I chickened out the last time, but to my defense, I think it was more of depression rather than fear. That is what I get when you put me face to face with a body of water, okay! And the Singapore river qualifies as such. Wicked was also the primary reason as to why I went there the last time anyway. Excuses, lots of them! And so to settle the score, I decided to do the reverse bungy after getting my supply of JLPT review books from Kinokuniya. And so, how was the experience?

As is common with most thrill rides, the build up of paranoia takes longer than the ride itself. Once the maintenance guy tells you “Bye bye!” and pushes the button that launches you like a rocket, you will realize that it is just a few seconds of gravity defying excitement. What comes next are a few tumbles here and there, which might hurt your neck, and a minute or two of fresh air and an awesome view. Goodbye SGD45. Done with my unfinished business, I went back to Matchbox to retrieve my things and hopped on a bus to Johor Bahru. See you again next month for the JLPT, Singapore!
