It’s a bird!

It’s a plane!

It’s… it’s….

It’s Super Mimi! :D


This photo was taken in July 2006 when we were on holiday in Bali with a Canon IXUS 55. When this photo was taken, there happened to be a plane flying past (on the right hand side, just a bit above me). Excellent timing, huh? ;)

My friend signed me up for para-sailing and I was too chicken to tell her that I was petrified. But I was glad I went ahead and did it because I ended up having the best time of my life.

The moment I got over the initial feeling of fear and just let go, I felt complete and utter peace, which reminded me of the same calmness that envelops me whenever I go snorkeling.

Look, Ma. No hands!

It felt exhilarating as I soared like a bird, looking down on the island and the deep blue sea.


See the tiny speedboat pulling me down there? I was linked to it with a huge rope. I thought to myself, in the worst case scenario of the rope snapping off, I’ve got the parachute to slow down my fall…and if I fall, I’ll fall into the sea and swim… so why worry? ;)

Special thanks to DH for keeping an eye on the twins while their mama was off flying! There were only 6 months old back then.
