Interacting with Trua and Malia

I’ve watched countless numbers of killer whale documentaries / videos, stayed up till 6am night after night just reading stories and information about them, and I’ve even watched them perform in front of me barely a metre away in Sea World quite a lot of times…

They occupy my thoughts more than anything else in this world.

But what I really, really really really wanted to do was just to be able to reach out to a killer whale..

To try to be part of their world and interact with them. Instead of being just another gawking spectator, I wanted to be its friend.

I was truly the happiest girl alive when to my delight, Trua and Malia decided to be that special friend for me.

I thought it wasn’t going to happen, but amazingly it did!!!!!! And I have it on tape to remember it by.

One of the most magical moments I’ve ever had in my life.. is one that I shared with killer whales

It’s a deep fascination and love that I can’t explain. Just to have it look straight into my eyes was enough to make me forget about the real world. All I could think of was how beautiful they were. I didn’t even notice other people surrounding me taking pictures and videos.. I was bouncing up and down with exhilaration and thinking to myself, “I’ll never forget this moment.”

And I won’t.

After my exams, I’ll visit them again. I miss them like crazy already. I CAN’T WAIT.

I didn’t get to touch you with my bare hands, but thank you for touching my soul…
