[Check out my earlier blogpost about this year’s NDP Funpack! Lots of goodies inside!]
Besides the NDP rehearsal, us bloggers got to experience a ride on the Rigid-Hulled Inflatable Boats (RHIBs). These crafts can go at such speed (40miles per hour, it was said) that my false eyelashes were at danger of being blown off at any time. And when they create ‘waves’ with their maneuvers, you’ll definitely get drenched if you’re sitting on the ‘wrong’ side.
Daddy Blogger, Andy Lee, who blogs at sengkangbabies, took a video of the ride. Check it out:
I had the “fortune” of sitting on the side with the “showers of blessings”. We did the same ride multiple times because it was a rehearsal after all, and everything had to be fine-tuned. The first time the ‘splash’ came, I was unprepared and my camera got wet. Thankfully, it was sturdy enough to withstand the soaking.
For the next 4 or 5 times, I would use my body as a shield to prevent the water from getting onto my camera. 😀
It was definitely a memorable joyride. Many thanks to MINDEF/SAF! 🙂
