Treking to Bukit Shahbandar

Today as part of OGDC healthy life style programme (HLP) I decided to bring the OGDCians to Bukit Shahbandar. This is part of our routine programmes ( 2 or 3 times a week) to ensure that each and everyone is fit, healthy and stress free...hahahah but after that makan berabis. The guys really love food and they never can have enough..cut them from their food the sure suffer...the HLP is another way of saying exercise..exercise..exercise!!!!

I did proposed to Cikgu Hj Ishak (PJN TP) for OGDC to have a friendly street soccer match with the PJN teachers or gangsters but unfortuntately all of us are really may be next time. Kalau lawan the PJN gangsters gerenti durang kalah and they will get very emotional...hehehehe

greeting our arrival ...a monkey named Alimin

Wasai Telingan - Rampayoh

Wow!!!!...what a day today, never thought i would be back alive..eheheh (sound very dramatic). The story goes like this..

..initially I'm a bit hesitant to go for jungle trekking as last nite I was told to be on standby due to certain emergency (hush! hush! for now)...and I have a function at lunch time. Well! what the heck just go..have fun & enjoy the beautiful weather. Meet the rest of the guys at about 7.30am at Taman Rekreasi Sg. Liang (got there a bit late..'cos contemplating to go or not) and then we are on our way....

To cut the story short...half way trekking I was really exhausted so decided to take a sipped of 100 plus..a few seconds after that starting to feel the back of my gawd!!! what I dying :). First thing first, better save Nikki (my nikon camera ler) and put her inside the bag..then after that baru tah pengsan..eheheh very materialistic. Luckily, the others were there to help.

On our actually fact the wasai is located not in Bukit Teraja but in Rampayoh.

convoy...following your greatness..heheeh

..we lost our way...nasib baik we got the right direction

distribution of food & drinks...for the trip

really shock to see 90% of the trekkers are ladies...what happen to the men?

getting ready...

heheheh the group...

its not as easy as one's thinks...

surprisingly the ladies do survive..eheheh

Zahrin showing to get water from the root of a tree..very interesting indeed. The taste of the water is similar as those from the stream. An important info...if you got lost in the jungle & without water sources nearby

we finally arrived at the for me I feel much better. I really need a good dip in the water to freshen-up

I was dreaming of spending my saturday guling-guling on the bed, day dreaming and watch TV till my eyes pop out but instead...

..rushing-off to Labour department getting contracts for my amah & driver approved. Then dash to PJN Abu Bakar for a meeting with cikgu Marina, I was quite concern on the progress of the PJN gangsters in preparing for their presentation far none are even bother to asked or feedback on their progress... :( Hopefully, Cikgu Marina would be able to resolve this.

Honestly, we been trying hard to improve the gangsters presentation and communication skills which is paramount for their future development. I wish I could make them understand!!!!!... Guys please take this opportunity...if you miss this workshop don't think there will be another one..

My gawd!!!!...its been hectic today and later I have to prepare for tomorrow jungle trekking with the guys to Wasai Telingan (if I am not mistaken its somewhere near Bukit Teraja..)..

Cikgu Hj Ishak...share my concern in developing these students...

my eyes are wide open when I saw the word "Lots for Less"!!!!

Mutiara is specialty shop that sales furnitures, knick-knacks, etc from Bali, Tibet, China, Vietnam, etc...for those who loves oriental things this is the shop to go to. Situated on above of Pan Bright Travel agent...i.e 1st floor

statues on sale.....

currently some of the furnitures are no a very good discount

These are the two items I bought from Mutiara...a perfume bottle and a smoking pipe. I love the oriental 'dragon' design. From what I heard from the owner, they never have 2 items with the same design..(steady jua gambar ku ani macam pro udah..eheheheh)

Love to collect things that are me represent 'long term investment'

....after Mutiara when window shopping at The Body Shop, see what fish ** wink ** I can catch..

hehehe shopping kah? Tina from Megamas..
