Today marks my third time hiking up Penang Hill, also known as Bukit Bendera. We took the Youth Park trail up. Started hiking around 8.10a.m. and reached back down around 12.30p.m. It was kind of a personal achievement for me as I managed to do it without Leonard's help and constant encouragement (not to mention half-dragging me up all the way). I always thought I could make it only by holding on to him, but today I proved myself wrong. Well, at some point I realised that I have to face life stronger than ever, alone, when the person I miss is not by my side. Also, seems that I'm not that weak after all, my regular runs on the gym treadmill paid off by improving my stamina and willpower. I remember my first hike up, it felt worse than hell. This time around I had to stop once whilst climbing up the stairs to catch my breath and try not to faint.
Thanks to WM for inviting me for the hike, WH for the chocolate milk, LS for the yummy sandwiches, and Jules for hiking together with me at the last part. Now for that lactic acid to wear off... :-)

这是一个很女人的一天。为了让我们这些女性工程师能够更容易地融入男性占大多数的工作环境，我们的部门的 gender diversity taskforce 在八月十一日，在 B-suite 酒店办了一个 PDC Ladies Day，邀请全部门的女性出席，真让我们感到受宠若惊... ^_^ （男士们有没有很羡慕？）

Haha... I'm feeling very adventurous lately. The outdoor activities have been getting a little frequent in the past couple of weeks.
On midnight Friday, I was suddenly jolted awake by the sound of my SMS ringtone. The text from Wei Xuan read, "Wanna go white water rafting with me and my friends tmr evening?" After a couple more text exchanges later, I was hopping on the Riverbug van together with his friends, heading for the Kampar River for my first attempt at White Water Rafting!
The rapids of Sg. Kampar are classified as Grades I-III. After my experience, I deem it extremely mild and not scary at all, even for a first-timer like me. I'd imagined it to be something more thrilling, like rafting off waterfalls in Indiana Jones. Seeing that I was the only girl on board, I added some screams and shrieks for effect lah...
At some parts of the river, we tried out some body-rafting techniques. We also climbed up a tree branch dangling horizontally across the river and mimicked the Olympic divers -- double somersault down! It felt like being a kid again, bathing in Sg. Bil. At that point I had the feeling that I had paid a little too much on the high side -- RM145 for the rafting. Darn. I didn't even capsize, nor get flung out of the raft! :-( But I did get a glimpse of some lovely Raja Brooke butterflies fluttering their pretty wings on the bank though. :-)
Us in the boat - Anybody interested in these 4 fit bachelors, feel free to drop me a comment.
Conquered Sg. Kampar!
Last but not least, dinner at Kampar's famous claypot chicken rice... YUMMYLICIOUS!!!

最近追看 Ntv7 播出的本地戏《有你终身美丽》，爱上这首片尾曲。 离我远远的是你； 突然间，好想你。
再远远 你幸福 我会搁浅

But it's still ok, I have Sia Ling's Skytrex photos to view and blog about now!! :-)
During the weekend I travelled down to KL again -- this time for an adventure amongst the treetops at Skytrex, Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya Shah Alam! Thanks to Chen Jie the organizer, a total of 19 people showed up that sunny morning. I say, daredevils we are not, just a bunch of working adults trying to recapture our youth!
Me and pretty Jace on the open-air bus
The last time I'd been to Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya, I was still a kid. It was a gruesome experience -- the memory of the open-air bus I was on running over that girl on a bicycle will be forever etched in my mind.
But nevermind, I was in a good mood that day and was determined to chase the devils of my childhood out of Taman Pertanian!
Gearing up - I love Chen Waan's waist! It's so tiny!! *envy*
Renting the climbing equipment is compulsory (no Spiderman here). Rental of the harness costs RM31.50 and you can either choose to rent the gloves for RM1 or buy disposable ones for RM2. The RM1 gloves stink.
No worries here, there are people to help you with the harness. The harness goes around your waist and pelvis, so it's kinda like a seat while you're suspended from mid-air. 3 things are hooked on your waist: 1 carabiner with short rope, 1 carabiner with long rope, and a pulley.
When you see horizontal ropes, unhook the pulley from your waist and hook it onto the safety rope. Hook the short carabiner on the pulley. Then hook the long carabiner onto the rope behind the pulley. When you see vertical ropes, hook both carabiners on the loop on the rope. The pulley is not needed.
Due to my well-known history of calamity incidents, I had to constantly remind myself each time to hook everything and double check, before leaping off the platform. Else, that's it. End of story.
All geared up!
Nicholas is getting more and more 'hiau' by the day. He won't take off his shades.
First Contender - the Brave Hau
This is the ladder each one of us had to climb. Imagine Jack climbing the beanstalk.
Lesson learnt from Skytrex
2. Life is like Flying Fox. Friends can only cheer you on and give you advice. But you are the one to summon your own courage and take the leap of faith.
Memoribilia - At least each of us got an S&M glove for keeping
All 19 of us!
