Its been quite awhile since I last ventured into the wilderness. I was quite busy dealing with freelance stuff for the past few weeks. Kinda makes me miss the wilds a lot... On October 25th 2009, 7 guys, 1 girl and 1 dog left TTDI around 7:30 am for Lata Kedondong. Lata Kedondong is located alongside the road from Batang Kali to Gohtong Jaya in the Genting Highlands. N 03 25.82' E 101 43.86'. There is a lower falls 5 minutes away from the car park which is easily accessible by everyone... To reach the upstream falls, one must trek 45 minutes pass a bamboo forest. I have to admit that i'm actually treking like a wuss this trip (kinda creeped by Eddie and his tiger leech sucking off someone's balls story). The upstream falls of Lata Kedondong is pretty unexploited, you will actually need a machete to clear the path... cool huh? Some sort of rainbow thing is visible at the upstream falls around 9:30~11:00 am.
The water there is freezing cold, but for some unknown reasons its also one hell of murky. I didn't get to take a good shoot at the upstream falls due that area being all time foggy/ misty. I didn't went up to the Upper-tier-falls as I'm too chickened to do so... There are quite a fair amount of wildlife in that area... Tiger leeches (fanged worm-leeches), tree frogs, and various insects. Heh... We also found a Genting Highlands road sign rammed down by some drunken driver. That's all for now i guess... Peace... I think i did something wrong right before we left Lata Kedondong... I mean really wrong...

Wow... What the fuck?!? Hmmm... That's odd, i don't remember selling my piece of artwork to any company. I think I can tell that I'm too happy about this. I don't know if i should take legal action against them... kinda broke currently, can't afford any lawyers... Its quite sad to know that this kind of unethical people still exist.
I mean its not fair for me, you are making tons of greens over there out of my art, and i'm sitting here getting nothing... Fucking pissed.

Its very hard for salon cars to maneuver their way into the starting part of the trail. Better get a 4wd next time.
There are lots of wildlife to observe along trail. Most of them are not afraid of humans.
Woot! Our awsome dinner!
We have Jedi masters wanabes during the night. Bwahahahahah.
Heh, that's all I guess... Off to dinner now.

As I'm getting ready for Lubuk Kawah, Perak tomorrow, I've realized something... going for on an adventure trip on Sunday mornings is like people going for Sunday church. going on an adventure trip on Sunday mornings became part of my life. I recall my first adventure trip was 7 or 8 months ago... a short hike up Tabur hills with frog and his ex... I think that it was awsome. I know that there are people out there that thinks that going on a trip that might end your life every Sunday morning is stupid... I feel sad for this group of people as they don't get to enjoy those wonders mother nature made for all of us. This morning was an unusual Sunday morning. I woke up at 9:30, when i finally got down from bed, its 10:30am already. I don't know, I just feel kinda empty not going adventure. Took breakfast and went to church with frog... There goes my Sunday morning... Heh.
Went to Broga Hills last week, Sir Footstool Pee-and-Shit-a-lot joined our group... He smells like crap, and he is trying to make Broga hills smells like him. Ah... Crap...

There are lots of fish here, but you are not allowed to do fish strafing here with your bow, harpoon or what-so-ever tools. Remember to bring your swimming googles along!
The world is so beautiful...if only we can see that, share it and keep it that way. -Linus
That's all for today i guess... Good night.

Last Sunday, 23rd Aug 2009, was packed with double the amount of awsomeness of any other usual Sundays. Me and my gang made a quick run to the peaks of Tabur that morning. It's awsome, just that its a bit too cloudy... I kinda missed the "Tabur moment" this time, but then its no big deal. It's not the location that made the trip awsome, but the people alongside us that made the trip awsome-packed.
Playing around with white balance... tungsten mode. I took a short nap right after i got home and get ready for Eddie, Dennis and Carol's surprise party. It took Audrey (and her friend), Timmy, Frog and Me 4~5 days to wrap up everything essential for the surprise party. We printed a few copies the birthday boy/girl's mask and cracked some really bad jokes with the masks.
Oh and, if you are stung or cut by some weird looking plant in the wild, do remove the thorns and pay immediate medical attention. Otherwise, you will end up like me. I'm cut by some weird looking root with spikes while hiking Tabur.

Broga Hills are located somewhere near Semenyeh. One could easily reach the first peak of Broga Hills in less than 20 minutes time, there are no complicated side tracks, no need to get wet, no leeches, no serious hiking, there is no need of a parang unless you want to pose with it at the top, just one straight path to the top... If it takes you more than 30 minutes to get up there, you'll have to admit that you are either a SISSY or a WUSS, Tabur Hills are not for you. Seriously. Trust me, its that simple. The crowd was enormous up there because the peak could be easily accessed.
"Hey, my name is Sum and today is my birthday. Would you like to have a piece of cake then?" Random chicks feeding me my cake, epic moment of life. Heheheh... Now touch my awsome button.
This is the HAMSTER GOD, it is rumored that if you pray to him and touch his balls, your balls will grow bigger... Go touch it, you know that you want to. Good night folks.

The track is quite clean, don't take the sidetracks or else you will end up in the middle of nowhere... If you happen to see this tree, you will erm... have to do a 15 minute back track.
From what i learned from my failure last Tuesday on Tabur, NEVER leave home without this amazing babe. If you love adventure, hiking and tracking a lot, do not hesitate to get one of these... Especially people that prefer to hike/ track with flip flops.
