Right after the bungy jump..

we drove to go-cart ..

around 12.30 at noon.. muahahhahaa..

so..it was about 10minute play and 3minute break.. and another 10minute..
cost about 800 Baht.

the first round was free-play..

the 2nd round kinda got a correct starting line-up.. sort of.. hehehe

never had go-cart experience before this.. so it was interesting..
“you can drive whatever speed you want…”

except to remember that there is phrase which read as …

“if the accident occured.. you have to bear the cost to repair the machine.. okay .”

line up at go-cart..

Ok.. after done with the go-cart thingy .

we heading for the Elephant trekking .. somewhere near a elephant camp..

well.. from the start..
“this activity would not be adventurous like a bungy jump.. ”

so most of the younger team’s member doesn’t want to join.. except myself..
i not quite remember why did I agreed to join this activity though..

maybe it was just kinda an event to prove that..” what can go wrong.. will go wrong.. ”
“how to control something un-controllable..”

Ok..let’s see some photos..

7. the last ‘shoot’ that i took before he went mad..
the-other-elephant

while we are feeding this other elephant i think.. the caretaker was just being too aggressive toward “Johny”.. beating him.. for not giving the feed to the other elephant.. somehow.. before i could even blink.. he just smack out the tree quite a few times.. then he start making sound …

and.. suddenly rush up quite fast.. until the caretaker itself thrown over..
left me alone at the riding deck..and start running upward the hill at the very hi-speed..
I was thinkin..
“Oh.. this is nice ride.. if it was planned to be like this..”..
except i had to hold tightly or else i think i would also had been thrown….
hahaha.. then.. until up the hill.. he still kinda not stopping..but still making some un-comfortable sound..
whispering in kelantan … “Doh lah tu.. boo lah” (i don’t think he understand … hahahahaaha)

and.. i think someone managed to catch us.. and hold his tail.. to make it stop for a while..
then only realized.. this could be the best moment to jump..
however i just heard..
“Kun..kun..kun”.. from the one who hold his tail.. (honestly .. i don’t understand what that mean.. hahhahahaah)

so i asked.. “Do you want me to jump or what ?”
(with my hand pointing downward..) – i think this is when my glass had been dropped in front of the elephant.. (oh..shit..)

without further ado.. the elephant move a bit forward.. and after i choose where to land..
(left-side of the elephant.. ~ this moment i was at the top of his head…almost falling forward.. geee…)
i jumped into the small bush on top of the hill.. with some rolling forward to counter the inertia for a fall (luckily managed to stop rolling with very minor injury). ..
(i think i was kinda doing some stunt.. hahahaa)
the moment i landed into the bush, the elephant had just run straight toward the hill track.. (and smashed out my spectacles.. *sigh*)

fortunately .. i was saved.. :) ..
then i just walked out the bush and .. back to the base… seeing all my colleagues.. heheheehe..

then… then camp authorities perform some sort of medical check up upon me..
elephant-trekking-3my-glass
and refund all the fare that we had paid earlier..
after about half-an-hour or so….
“Johny” came back to the base… with a bleeding head/nose.. (so kesian..)
johny-the-elephant
and he was already calmed down.. and I managed to feed him with some bananas… (a way to get rid of fearing the elephant.. hehehehe)

p/s : i don’t think that Johny (the elephant) had ‘turun-minyak’.. but just went mad a bit..
as if ‘turun-minyak’… he wouldn’t be back within such short period…. woohoo, i felt like had just riding a mad elephant for a good 5minute.. hehhee !

that’s it for the day.. all my other colleague had also cancel their elephant trekking that evening..

conclusion : always be prepared for an Adrenaline rush..!
