If you hear blind Taiwanese singer Hsiao Huang-chi, 37, screaming while taking a theme park ride, it is not because he is scared.
The amiable singer says: "Screaming is a way to create the atmosphere. That's what makes it fun. I've loved taking such rides since I was a kid. I'm not daunted by them, as I see them as a way of challenging my limits."
The adrenaline junkie visited Universal Studios Singapore on Sunday, ahead of his concert performance on Tuesday, and candidly shares how he enjoys the sudden dips and sharp turns.
Calling The Revenge Of The Mummy indoor roller-coaster ride as his favourite ride at the theme park on Sentosa, he says: "It suddenly reverses and then moves forward again.
