free fall

Well, I've always wanted to try skydiving. After all, free fall is supposed to be an amazing experience.

Last Friday, I got to try it for free. ;) On a flight back to HK from Malaysia, we hit an air pocket as we passed by all the tropical storms in the Philippines region. The plane dropped about a thousand feet. Everything went into slow motion for about 30 secs.

Food went flying everywhere. Luckily I was belted in. My sister floated up and hit her head - but she's ok. It was pretty scary. A couple of the stewardesses were badly injured.

I might have to give skydiving a miss after all.

Perhaps they should give magnetic boots to the stewardesses. ;) Say hello to Steph for me!

c'mon you big (err, little?) sissy! what's losing a thousand feet at 30kft? now losing a thousand feet _from a thousand feet, that's a whole different story.
