The Weekend Getaway

on November 29, 2012


How are you all doing? Has your week turned out okay? I hope so and I hope you’re heading towards the end of the year in good spirit.

As for me, I am undergoing what they call Tropical Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training (T-BOSIET). It trains you to, among other things, escape from a sinking helicopter. So, this Thursday afternoon, I got in a simulator and got drowned 4 times with seatbelt on and window and door closed. We were expected to know how to open the window/door, unlatched the seatbelt, and swim up to the surface. The last two, they turned the simulator helicopter upside down under water. So…I spent weeks in the jungles of Indonesian mountains before. Nothing prepared me for that. Some people must think it’s pretty cool. Wait until they drown you upside down. Ha! By the way, I’m scheduled to go to an oil rig by Dec 10 for a week. Pray for my safety, please. You know the weather at this time of the year in Indonesia.

Now, remember that I went to Bali for a weekend getaway sometime back? Well, I’m going to share the photos with you. I think being spontaneous is fun! You should try it sometime, if you haven’t already.

So here are the photos. Have a lovely happy fun cheerful weekend! Don’t burn it!
