I have always been curious about ice skating. It looks easy when you see someone do it, and it sure looks fun! I wondered how I would fare if I tried. After all, I was good in roller skating (ummm, back in the '80s! Haha!).
It was one weekend that our team decided to check out Bangkok's newest mall, Mega Bangna. We did not know what to expect, except that it was going to be huge.
Well, what do you know? There is an ice skating rink there, and the kids were ecstatic! They wanted to try. Since Roi would be needing someone to assist him, I had to skate myself. Again, I had high expectations of myself, the used-to-be good roller skater. LOL!

I think I'm ready!
The rink awaits.. let's do it!

I had to rent this penguin stand (if that's what you call it) to help Roi get a good balance.

To be honest, I didn't think I enjoyed that ice skating experience. Truth be told, it's not as easy and fun as it looks! It would have been easier if I did roller blades rather than roller skates. I fell on my behind twice, and my ego and pride fell with me. Haha! Roi was so scared to move without me, and he kept falling himself. If I were to suggest to the management of that ice skating rink, it would be best if there was a guide or a teacher for beginners like us. It was hard to be with other seasoned skaters out there. I would not mind paying a hundred baht at least for a person to take care of Roi and me while we practice.
So am I going to do it again? Hmmm, not sure. Maybe I would rather sit on a bench somewhere with a good book! (Wait, am I sourgraping here?)
Yep, I guess I am!
