Our Best Stories of 2006
Happy New Year from John and Ching! Here are the funniest and most fun things we did in 2006... click on the link to see the full story.
1. Our Bungy Jump
"You booked the tandem one?" asked the lady at the AJ Hackett Bungy counter. "You're crazy."
2. Fox Glacier Heli-Hike
Fox Glacier Heli-Hikes are billed as a once-in-a-lifetime experience. That’s partly because after paying our tab we were too broke to consider a second go. Kidding aside, the glacier was amazing.
3. Our Scary Bed and Breakfast Stay
There was a huge closet in the bedroom. It was large enough to hold a person and I was afraid to open it for fear that it did.
4. Capoeira, Football, and the Standard Chartered Marathon
We did a lot of sports this year - Ching sparred with Brazilian guys on the sidewalk on Orchard Road (imagine that), while John played football with Pirates FC and finished the 42K Standard Chartered Marathon for the second year in a row... despite swearing after last year's marathon that he'd never do it again.
5. Trekking Toa Payoh
Yes, I know... suburban Singapore isn't exactly the height of death-defying adventure. But given the scarcity of mountain peaks and ocean depths within walking distance from our apartment, beggars can't be choosers :)
Many more stories and a ton of pictures are up on my blog at makati.blogspot.com
May you all have a great 2007! Keep in touch!
Ching and John
