While the Nuffnang team was at Sentosa we went on a ride called the Luge that partly required us to sit on sky swings to get from the bottom of a hill to the top. The sky swing is if anything... freaking scary!
Allow me to illustrate.
Check out this picture. You are hanging from many many feet up in the sky with tree tops at your feet and if you think the net in the picture is meant to catch you if you fall off the swing you're wrong.
The net is only meant to stop you from crashing into the people down below!!! One thing I learned though is this.
The average girl... is always less afraid of heights than the average guy.
That's right.. guys are generally more afraid of heights than girls.
And I notice that even in people like my dear business partner Ming. Ming is if anything a very very aggressive character.
The kind of guy that you never want to step on his toes.
But put him on a sky swing and... Bwahahaha....
So knowing that Ming is afraid of heights, I put together a small team for my little ploy.
First, I got Suet Li to make sure she got on the same swing as Ming and kept taunting him. Then I got our Singaporean intern Hui Wen to arm herself with her camera and take a video of Ming while Suet Li was taunting him. In Hui Wen's defense, she was afraid to play along at first.... scared kena scolded by Ming, not to mention, when it comes to Nuffnang Singapore (in which she was working under), Ming is the boss.
But I promised her that I'll take the fall if anything happens so she agreed. So the 3 of them got on and the video started streaming. Why don't you guys watch the video and tell me if the plan failed or succeeded.
If you watch the video, pay special attention to how both of Ming's hands were firmly gripped on the handle bar throughout the entire ride.
