Ever want to feel like you’re flying? Well let me introduce you to the Flying Fox. This is an exciting activity that challenges you to a different stage of fear that you probably have never personally experience before. Flying fox is located in Loola Resort and is like an upgraded version of the normal zip line you may have seen. Instead of just hanging until the people help you get down, you’re landing straight into the salty pool that’s been filled with ocean water. Although the water may seem cold, the heat from sensation of ziplining will surely warm you up. On the first look, you’ll freak out, but trust me, you do not want to miss this activity. Everyone who tried would agree that this is one nerve wracking activity. As I climbed up the ladder and looked down, it was pretty frightening. In my opinion the worst part was standing on that platform and telling myself its time to jump. The cold, windy air didn’t seem to help either. But when I finally did that leap of faith I couldn’t forget the experience. However, if you’re afraid of getting hurt, honestly don’t be. Take risk and challenge yourself. Because if you’re geared up and you have listened to the instructor carefully, all you’ll be worrying about is not being able to go twice.

“AHHH!” The students scream lingered across the clear blue ocean surrounded by small islands. The Boom Net activity is something you do not want to miss out, because it made my friends and I real close. When I mean real close, I mean real close. Boom Net is when you’re jumping off a platform into the empty water, but don’t you worry, there’s a net that will catch you from being pulled away. The Boom Net activity has two level, which you’ll have to do level 1 on the deck before going to level 2, where all the fun happens. It’s located in the middle of the ocean, which you’ll be brought to by a smaller speedboat. They have picked a pretty good location for your safety because for sure you do not want to jump into rocks. To be honest, the experience made me felt like a fish from being caught in the net, but in a good way. It was pretty entertaining watching everyone get stuck together in that net. As the boat stride across the ocean, all of us were being pushed against each other. Some of us were holding onto each other and the end of the nets, while some of us were being pulled away to the other side. What’s great about this activity is the unlimited turns, and you definitely would want to go as much as possible before the time is over.

Let me introduce you to Changi Airport. In my opinion it is one of the best airports in the world. It is located in the amazing and very well developed country of Singapore. After those five days of mentally challenging yourself, you can finally shop and discover the stunning airport with your friends. The scenery is indescribably stunning with all the trees, and air with not even a single speck of dust. The airport itself is pretty overwhelming to be honest, because I can’t make up my mind where to go first. It’s filled with shops that people can die for and the outrageously delicious aroma of food is unbeatable. I won’t be surprise if it were to be in the top ten airport around the world, because it’s clean, modern, and very spacious. In my opinion, it was a work out trying to get to wherever I wanted to go. So far, it has to be in one of my favorite places out of all the places I have been too. Students really enjoyed their time at the airport because we were all suffering from Bintan’s heat. Therefore it was a great way to relax, cool down and have fun. Singaporean citizens are quite lucky to have this heavenly airport. Enjoy and spend your time wisely here because by the end of everything, you will not want to leave one bit.
