Don't be fooled by the looks of the big guy, that's my freakishly tall baby brother Daniel (he's about 190cm tall)!
**I hope he doesn't see this...**
So we all got our entry passes, skates and gloves. We were ready. At last, the moment of truth; time to skate. Before we got started, I kept questioning my friends, "How do you skate?? How do you skate???" But none of them seemed to be able to explain the secret of skating. Oh man!
I was the last among my friends to get on the ice and quickly went to the side so that I have something to support me. They could skate so swiftly and smoothly. How do they do it? I observed and tried as best as I can to copy their moves.
A little kid passed by me skating like as if it was as easy as breathing! I really gotta learn how to skate! Fast!
I held on to the side and began to push myself using one side of my leg and I began to move! I did the same thing with the other side and soon, I began to move slowly. As soon as I was confident enough, I let go and before I realised it, I was skating! I can skate!!
After a few rounds, I soon got used to manuvering myself on ice. I've finally learned how to skate! At last!
As I was slowly skating feeling confident that I couldn't slip and fall on the ice this time, I heard a voice call out my name. I turned my head, lost my balance, and with one leg in the air, SPLASH! The now melted ice I landed on got me all wet! Oh well, so much for staying dry.
Fatiha, one of my friends whom I was skating with apologized for distracting me and felt really bad, but now that I come to think about it, I thought it was funny so all is forgiven.
At last, it was lunchtime! we had Terriyaki for lunch this time; a nice change compared to eating fast food all the time whenever I go out with my friends. But it wasn't cheap let me tell you this.
