I am always afraid of water since the day I was born, up to the extent I don't dare to pamper myself to a luxury dip in a bath tub. For that fear, I have to lose out a lot especially during my vacation to the beach. Despite having life jacket on me, sailing on the open board sea is good enough to give me the chill, holding tight to any and everything I could.
That's why I am often the 'jaga barang boy' who will be babysit your belonging while others are having so much fun releasing stress. What motivate me to take up swimming lesson has to be an incident which I regretted not taking swimming seriously when I had the chance to learn. It was an embarrassing moment for me to have fell into a pool during a party and was screaming like a girl for help.
The secondary reason that motivate me further to learn how to swim comes in a form of healthy lifestyle. You see I was growing sideway as I grow older and had eventually lower down my self-esteem. I did tried out other form of exercise but nothing seems to be working as my friends are leaving the country to work overseas. Hence I took up the courage and started learning swimming.... all by my own.
Embarrassingly I started learning in kid's pool but of course the wise side of me pick a right timing where there's no kids around during my 'drowning' time. When I am comfortable then I switch to a shallow pool and since then I never step foot onto the kid's pool again. Technically I learn all my moves from YouTube videos. Started off with breathing, follow by floating and soon voilà my first breaststroke. Over the years I keep improving on the technique and learning new skills all from the Internet. I do admit I couldn't live without the Internet but hey at least I didn't waste my life around nonsense and I'm definitely proud doing so.
Years of perfection and practicing, not only I could join my friend on a pool of sea, but also I could comfortable pose / fool around in and/or on the water/sea. Though I have not master each and every swim technique, I am proud to say I could now swim for laps / hours as part of my daily diet plan, while leading a healthy lifestyle.
My target next would be mastering butterfly style and perfecting it. Though I am only doing my swim casually, I also tend to give out free lesson to whoever who is keen to learn to swim. That's because I have been there and know how it felt and believe that I have had lots of bad experience while I learn swimming all by my own, so I wish I could guide and train those who are keen to not have to go through the journey like mine.
