One of the best thing about moving to Sydney is that my family in Singapore is that much closer now, a fact that I didn’t truly appreciate until this past week, when 12 friends and family flew over to celebrate my grandpa’s 90th birthday in style – by skydiving! 17 of us jumped out of an airplane to accompany my grandpa’s 4th attempt, and for 11 of us, it was their first time!
1. Long weekend in Kiama – we broke out our Oru kayaks for the first time, and in bigger news, my brother proposed! Jeff and I were there to help capture the moment (so was my mum, with her powerful zoom from a few hundred meters away!)
2. On Saturday, before driving down to Wollongong to skydive, Jeff, my aunt and I headed over to Curl Curl for the sunrise. Hehe it’s my favorite beach, and I managed to get most everyone to visit (albeit on different days this week)
Half our skydiving group
3. We also went whale watching, just outside the Sydney Harbour. It was a relatively calm morning, but about half our group succumbed to sea sickness. A couple actually declared that they would rather jump out of another airplane than board another boat…
