swimming?

I never thought that i could float in the water let alone to swim! my dad has been teaching me how to swim when i was much much younger.. looking back at the pictures when i was wearing my red polka dot bikini, makes me snicker now.. hehe..

I'm 26 years old now and after a few lessons from my dad a long long time ago, i stop learning to swim.. i gave up eventually.. but i did jumped into the swimming pool and dipped myself in it once awhile.. swimming? that would be out of the question as no one could teach me.. first of all, i'd be scared of drowning and secondly, no one in my family could REALLY swim!

Today for the 1st time i swam :) my hubby bought me a pair of goggles yesterday as we went shopping at Gurney Plaza, Penang.. so today when i'm at my in-laws apartment, my hubby asked me to go swimming.. it was REAL burning HOT today so i agreed to just dipped in the pool and watch him swim.. but then i ended up learning how to swim.. it was fun and he was there to catch me whenever i felt myself drowning.. he taught me how to hold my breath underwater, how to float, how to paddle with my feet and so on..

It was really scary to swim.. as i've always had a fear of drowning and no one is there to catch me.. BUT with my hubby, i trust him and i know he'd be there catching me.. tomorrow we'd be catching the early ferry at 8.30am to Langkawi and we'd spend a few days there.. just me and my hubby :) i can't wait to spend some quality time with my hubby.. away from our families, friends, traffic jams and etc.. that's what i call HOLIDAY!! *grin*


This is me before swimming! :)
