Kapuso star Maine Mendoza has said that she was thrilled to experience skydiving when she spent the holidays in Florida, USA recently.
Mendoza, who just returned to the popular noontime show “Eat Bulaga,” said that she wanted to experience skydiving alone very soon.
“I have always wondered how it would feel to fly. How do birds feel when they soar through the sky. How it feels to see everything from up above. I was fortunate enough to experience this in the magic city — Miami,” said Mendoza on Instagram.
“Funny thing, I almost cried while sitting inside the aircraft– incredibly nervous and happy – because DAMN I cannot believe I am actually doing this! (There is nothing more nerve-racking than the anticipation; from signing the waiver to the plane ride up; and when they open that motherfriggin door mid-flight! Juskoangpusoko!);
“But when we jumped off, I felt nothing but absolute bliss. For the most part, it felt unreal to me. It was breathtaking – literally, too. It was amazing. Best part is I didn’t pee my shorts!;
“Seriously though, I cannot believe I actually did it; I took the ultimate plunge! I was so freakin scared but still I made it alive. Lol! Next on my bucket list is to do it alone. (Charot, semi-not charot!);
“It made me realize most of the things worth doing starts with being nervous or terrified. You just gotta take the leap and make it happen;
“You might just be amazed at what you could achieve and how far your jump can take you ONLY if you take the chance. Sabingasa Nike, “just do it”! Some things are always worth a try;
“At the end of the day, chances are you’ll be thanking yourself for taking the risk because it made you happy… or at least alive,” added Mendoza.
