For first timers to Forest Adventure (Bedok Reservoir), the first thoughts might be serenity, pretty obstacles among the woods, the flying-fox induced screams from other participants. It sounds like awesome Fun !
Boon Xin hesitated.
She is mature enough to understand her own limitations.
She is old enough to have her own inhibitions, and fear.
But most importantly, she has not found the opportunity to challenge her own limits. Her brothers are always around to tide her through any challenges.
Not today. Up there in the trees, she needed to push herself to take the first step. The fear of “Falling” will always accompany her.
Daddy saw grit, determination, and fearless attitude from his little girl last Sat. So proud of Boon Xin as she dispatch each obstacle one by one, and to see her confidence grows.
Boon Xin has stepped out of her comfort zone at Forest adventure and conquered her fear today.
(disclaimer, this is the same girl who always dare Daddy to ride Legoland’s Dragon roller coaster!)
“Kor Kor wait for me!” “Kor Kor wait for me!”.
He is Boon Xin’s pillar of strength! And Daddy is so proud of 大哥 (Big brother)!
Boon Xin’s smile says it all, this is one experience (and milestone) which she will not forget soon.
