Macau Tower Jump: Would you do it?

Here’s a post to celebrate FEARLESS FRIDAYS!!

my fearful face

Once upon a time I promised someone in a letter that I would do the Macau Tower jump with him. I never thought that day would come, but it did.

don’t be fooled, I was far from happy. More like losing my mind

Actually, I cheated. I went all the way up there and chickened out of the Bungy, so instead I did the Skyjump which meant I was just lowered down from the top.

We were so lucky with the weather that day we couldn’t NOT do it. After all my three companions registered, I backed out and said I wouldn’t do it. We had to go eat lunch first downstairs before I actually gathered enough courage to go through with it. By that time the queue had increased and they told me I couldn’t do the jump until 6pm – but everyone had to take the ferry out by then.

Registration guy wouldn’t let me jump with my friends at the same time. What a dick!! I mean I know I was technically cutting the line but all my friends already registered and we were all paying more than HK$2,500 each to do the damn jump. The least you can do is let us jump together, right?!

Thank God for ANTHONY, the Kiwi Relationship Manager who made it happen. Look out for him, he’s got a black fern tattooed on his arm since he got sick and tired of people thinking he was Australian. I guessed it right before he told me, and that’s probably why he helped me out.

I couldn’t even bring myself to step off the damn platform out of my own free will, I was too scared, so they had to hang me like a mother carries kittens by the neck

How much is it? It’s NOT CHEAP. For a few seconds of thrill, you need to shell out HK$2,000-3,000 depending on which jump you do, and if you want the complete photo and video package. And of course you would want that, right?! Imagine going through all that shit with no proof that you actually did it -_-
