After winning from the raffle prize last February 2016 at the Smart’s special Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice Media Conference, I was so excited to know what was my own SMART BvS Fly Off Adventure gonna be, that of which will replicate the exhilarating Hong Kong Superman Adventure.
At that time, I had no clue as to what’s in store for us winners, I only heard that they might bring us either in Subic or in Baguio. And yes, they were right! Ben actually told us that initially, it was supposed to be either in Cebu or Davao but it will take us 2 hours to get there so they decided to have it there in Subic.
SMART BvS Fly Off Adventure
Upon receiving the instructions from the agency, I was told to be in comfy outfit and bring extra clothes for dinner and for the “adventure”. Also, “a footwear that is ok to get wet”, says Ria Orteza of CTV. Meeting place would be at the New World Hotel and call time would be 6AM.
So here’s what happened last Saturday for our SMART’s Batman Vs Superman Fly Off Adventure:
6AM: Meet-up at Café 1228
I got sick and busy last Friday and even went home around 2o’clock in the morning so I got to prepare my things just that morning. And gosh, I was so late I got there at 6:54AM
7AM: Left New World Hotel and proceeded to PLDT Hangar
Whoa! I’m really getting my first HeliRide experience!
Captain Noel and Captain Bong welcomed us with another coffee break while we were given a brief instruction:
If you have motion sickness or vertigo, we suggest that you stay at the back. Just relax and stay put, a disposable vomit bag is available if you feel like throwing up.
So, I took my 24mg Serc tablet immediately after the short meeting.
Cant’ believe that we had a speed of about 220 kilometers per hour and up there closed to 2000 feet!
Our pilots were so “galling” and all I felt were the pressure on my ears and that simple tickle somewhere along my butt hahah.
I was so amazed to see the clouds below us and across us (yes, I haven’t even taken an airplane ride yet!)
And the Helicopter ride going there was so smooth.
Breakfast followed at the Sand’s Resto Grill at the famous Lighthouse
Ben told us that we’re having a breakfast buffet, but he suggested not to eat much because of the next activity.
And guess what’s the next activity?
Welcome to Treetop Adventure!
Upon arriving, I felt like: Oh guys, I wanna pee!
Yes! As in Z-I-P-L-I-N-E !
And take note! It’s a Superman Adventure, woooooooh!
So I told myself: This is it Sol, you have to face and conquer your fear of heights today!
OMG hahah, God help me !
