Diary Entry from 10 November 2014
Crazy Crazy Crazy fair ride… oh my God! My heart is still thumping. My first ever fair ride – let me tell you how it was.
I wasn’t so sure that I wanted to try out that big hulky rotating mechanism. But then because these guys thought let’s do it for fun, so I thought why not? Let’s try and see.
I tell you from far it looks really innocent like baskets full of cheering people are just moving at a lazy speed… Even when I decided to climb into it, I thought it wouldn’t be so bad after all.
The first round.. the first slow round.. was ok.. Height.. some wind whistling in the ears… Nuvem road and the church sprawled in front of my eyes…
Then as the wheel picked up speed… My God I swear I thought my heart would fail with every dip it took. I dare not to look around incase the heights made me more dizzy.
If Flygirl wasn’t in that basket with me, God knows what I would have done… died on the spot with an heart attack maybe..
I saw Shub’s basket below us – Shub was completely flat on her seat, almost as if passed out. I shut my eyes and tried to take some calming breaths. Maybe if I didn’t clench my heart so tight, it wouldn’t get throttled with panic.
So in the middle of it all, I let go. If you don’t think about it, it doesn’t scare too much. Then suddenly the wind came rustling back in and I couldn’t stop screaming..
Finally, the beast slowed down and my heart calmed down… solwed down… calmed down… slowed down… down… over.
My first giant wheel ride done.
When I came out my legs were a little wobbly and tummy was little queasy.. Other than the giddiness, crazy fair ride successfully accomplished👍
I don’t know if I’m going to ever try this again once more but this one ride was an experience!
