  • yeah okay no no waves no nothing and they're good water temperature perfect

  • sure so just get going yeah I'm not much of a water guy so I get a little bit

  • nervous and it comes to being underwater so and the nerves are built up kind of

  • nightmare too but I'm really excited to try to conquer the fear

  • I've had some underwater modeling experience before but only like super

  • cold lakes in Canada and then trying to open your eyes you know in the cold

  • water and with my eyes already so small so it was so hard for me

  • yeah but anyways yeah it was hard but it was fun

  • I know that's why I'm in it at first I was really nervous of breathing and I'm

  • getting used to regulate in my ears and I took something getting used to

  • honestly I wasn't worried about the couple at all because I knew the

  • adventurous blood was running in their veins and it felt really good to

  • introduce my Rakhi friends to the water world to my world

  • and even better seeing them loving it so after the scuba diving we moved off to

  • the serious business which is the underwater photo shoot but we're mainly

  • here for and as for me I'm now Jasmine's personal assistant underwater checking

  • our makeup and her skirt underneath the water boys I'm

  • all right we're all suited up yeah here we are yeah you're dressed up so

  • beautifully and all your makeup is done and I see John you're a bit nervous no

  • I'm good you're good I'm ready oh I saw you praying this then yeah so we'll test

  • and try ready to get in the water again a little bit of a different way see I've

  • opened my eyes underwater a few times at the swimming pool so I'm not too worried

  • about that I'm more worried about to not being able to breathe underwater what

  • yeah I'm excited I don't know how long

  • love each other of course you do but we show that so grab her ass yeah we met

  • our photographer Yoko at the door who's super nice gave us a lot of advice

  • staying relaxed stay calm you know he was very professional told us to take a

  • little bit of scuba diving to get us used to it which was a lot of fun and

  • after that we went to the deeper part

  • well I was nervous to begin with as well because of the dress I was having

  • trouble like kicking my legs and then I got tangled several times but with all

  • the help from the rescue team and then I was getting more relaxed and then we

  • were getting better and better

  • even if you're a rough person being in the water

  • I think the most important thing that John kept so calm even if you were

  • actually really nervous is you have like this really strong mental training

  • before oh yeah definitely it's one of the things you have to have fear finding

  • damn is the mental fortitude strength in their private life it's just not my

  • forte is I sink like a rock it really helped tired it was work but it was

  • worth it yeah we're excited to see them today we went and saw that gal May

  • wetlands which is a home to a whole bunch of wind turbines giant windmills

  • bridge in the highest altitude of Taiwan Service says typing led into the clouds

  • obviously there's no this suspension bridge is linking two mountains

  • this is typing mountain and over there it's Turtle Mountain and on your

  • right-hand side this is the john inflate and it's one of the most prosperous

  • areas of Taiwan you get lovely produce the fruits the vegetables and very

  • famous for tea as well and also beautiful flowers orchids and beat on

  • that scenery is totally different here mountains have trees covering them

  • tropical crazy green trees covered in spiders we have mountains covered in

  • spiders but no trees it's beautiful totally different and I'm sure you're

  • not afraid of heights don't scare you know so this is just another beautiful

  • angle of the mountain I like this one it's 300 something meters down so not so

  • meaningful it is to have the ancient woods declare your love wedding under a

  • divine tree is watched over by ancient trees as newlyweds deal their lifelong

  • commitment underneath signifying everlasting love fortune and happiness

  • but I'm quite sure the couples are already really securely tied up together

  • just like their safety nuts in the climbing gear we're now at the a leash

  • trees Cypress cedar Taiwan fir and maybe like hundreds of years old to go see

  • some of the oldest trees in Taiwan that's one of our missions the next one

  • trees yeah I went there when that was a look at so you'd be nice to go with my

  • husband now right in front of us over here we're heading to this memorial

  • statue because people still cut trees down timber use so this is to kind of

  • calm the spirits down this bears up the tree so it's kind of a religious thing

  • on over there that's the most important one the most sacred one and guess how

  • old it is under 2,000 honestly it's two thousand and three hundred and that's

  • when our ancestors were still like mites cells the aged about two
