You might’ve thought that after my bungy jumping experience in Macau, I wouldn’t dare do anything extreme for awhile. However, when I visited Kuala Lumpur a month after our Hong Kong trip, I was able to do another bungee jump at Sunway Lagoon in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I don’t really have any wishes to die early but blame it on my adventurous personality when the opportunity presented itself to me. This time I got to dip my head in water which was another treat.

Sunway Lagoon, Petaling Jaya
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
We were at the Sunway Lagoon theme park when I saw a banner of their bungy jump attraction. I was excited but I didn’t really go crazy about it since the bungee in Macau already put my pockets to rest for quite a while. I thought that it would cost me an arm again. Upon further inquiry, I was really hyped since I realized that it’s not as expensive as I thought.

Others might think that the height of the jump is already a piece of cake for me considering that I already did the world’s highest bungy at 233 meters. However, I was trembling more during this jump because I had more time to think. At 21 meters, it’s still not something you can just easily shrug off.
I started shaking.
The Extreme Park is just one part of the overall theme park attractions in Sunway Lagoon. They also have a Scream Park, Water Park, Amusement Park and Wildlife Park – surely you won’t be able to finish the rides in a day! Guess which one was my favorite?

Price Rate of the Bungy Jump
130 MYR – around 1,820 Php (at 14 conversion rate)
The price was still expensive because most of my savings were spent during our trip in Hong Kong and Macau but I just had to do it. At least we had the fortune of taking pictures and recording the jump on video without any added expense.

I’m so glad and thankful to Jao and Cindy for documenting the whole scene as well as for keeping up with my behavior in doing this bungee. I forgot to bring my board shorts so pardon the skimpy clothing. By the way, No need to comment on the obvious. hehe.

When I was on the edge, my hands were really shaking and I was having difficulty standing straight. I had more time to contemplate and it wasn’t done in a rush. However, I got more nervous here because I was still going to free-fall and just the thought of pushing yourself was still scary.
remember to breathe
All the while, Final Destination movies were racing through my head; making me think of the worst that could happen. What if the rope breaks or what if I choke myself to death because of the cord wrapping itself around my neck after I bounce back. So I jumped again…
and I dipped my head in the water. The feeling was still exhilarating; this is, after all, head first. It went so fast I forgot to cover my nose and ears fearing that liquid would get inside.
After all the stress, I realized that the water was what I needed to refresh myself and snap me out of all the worrying. After I bounced back, I enjoyed the moment.
bounce back and forth
I kept bouncing back and forth. When it was over, I was hoisted down to a boat raft with another staff removing the cord attached to me.
The staff told me that AJHackett (the guys behind the Macau Tower Bungy) is a consultant in the operation of this attraction to ensure the safety and security of this extreme activity. However, they were not included in the list of the seven AJHackett sites because they haven’t reached the minimum height requirement of the jump.
Check out the video here. By the way, I don’t know what the staff were talking about while I was down below. I hope somebody could translate it to check if I was being made fun of or not. hehe

I was all smiles after this jump. I don’t think I might do a bungee jump any time soon, but if ever I might have another chance, I’ll still go for it. I doubt if I can keep my nerves altogether though.

I would’ve wanted to try the G-Force X wherein you will be catapulted up to 120 km per hour, in 2 seconds rising to the height of 65 meters. This is also known as a reverse bungee wherein you’ll be thrown away like a slingshot. However, they needed two people to ride this one and my companions were not willing enough to volunteer. Oh well, probably next time. 😀
