Gunung Tahan when I was Young

Found this article quite long ago. And its still here.
So I just thought of putting it here so it wont go into the memory lane.

Gunung Tahan in form 4

Of course I have my own version of it. I do remember some details.
Although we went as a group, its still pretty much quite individual. As per se, its not really a difficult climb. Tough, but not difficult. And the other pansies are too tired too be focused on togetherness anyway. Weaklings.

There's this sleeping bag which I brought along, used and damaged by persons other than me here too. The sleeping bag was a gift, from a girl and it have been with me always. On a side note, I still have it. During the whole journey, I carried it. But used by a fellow member as he fell ill. I have no qualm on that. I have it, so I lend it. It's just that the only period I was not carrying it, it was damaged (the cover). Ugh....

Then there was this senior.... If you notice, the author mentioned something about hornets attack. Well, during that part of the journey, I was running. I was way ahead and never notice any hornets. I was accused of stepping on the hornets' nest while I was on my way. Well fuck them. There was only one way to get ahead. So if you guys are behind, and slow. Its your fault. It will be the same if all are crawling up. Just that all will be stung. Ok, back to that senior. On the way back, again I was running. Until he called me to stop. Wait for the others he said. Well, seems like a mighty fine idea. Until I got bloody stung by one of the hornets. Screw you man. You knew I was in the middle of the hornets' area. Coz they got stung before. So y the f asking me to stop there, neither after nor before. Dem.

There were good people in there anyway. One guy who ran behind me. Never knew he will be the 2nd one to reach the peak!

Oh ya, I fell in love with Kit Kat here. Taste luxuriously tasty over there.

My reflection and I

A mirror is a mystical thing.
For example, a 30 seconds ride inside an elevator will seems like 3 seconds with mirrors fitted inside, and 3 minutes without.

Sometimes we wonder if it is a mirror itself that captivates us, or the world inside it? Is it not the world inside, is the same as outside? Are we human so weak, we need assurance from something so thin, to tell us everything is ok at the outside?

Many find solitude in the few mm surface. Some fear it. But almost all cant afford to live without it. Mystical thing it is....

Spineless Creature

We have just received our 2 new Frontiers. And the manggali took one for his own. He just park and reserve the whole unit for his own to use. Although he didnt really have a use for it. Unless you include fetching filiphinoes "chicks (aunties really)" and black locals to the office to ahem ahem. So basically leaving us another unit - for the 5 of us.

The 4 of them will need to go to the quarry. They are the wheels of the quarry, and in the quarry their work will be. And I need to go to the office, to collect a cheque. No cheque, no money. Im the authorised signatory for the company (take that u manggali!) so I will be responsible for the finance welfare of the staffs. The office and quarry is not very near each other. In fact, its bloody far.

So, the manggali selfishly park "his" car in the office (his house after i kicked him out from mine), and told me to fetch the 4 to the quarry and leave them there. Leaving them with neither food, transportation, water nor shelther. What kind of idiotic order is that? The country is a raining country. And a dangerous one. What if there's any accident? Call the not reliable ambulance? They dont really know how to anyway. Food? Pluck fruits from the trees? Water from the river? And 3 of them are just here for less than 72 hours. What kind of manager that makes you? A manggali one that is.

So I took the liberty to bring them out to lunch. And let them tag along to the office where I am supposed to collect the cheque.
I dont know how is that being a considerate human being can offend the manggali. Claiming I am going over his head by not following orders, he went berserk and f*8k me. As usual, I just ok, ok, yaya blah blah blah. No point arguing/reasoning with an idiot. Let him assume he is 100% right. I tried arguing/reasoning. But seriously, no point. Idiot = idiot.

Get me real fed up and I'll make my way back to Malaysia. I treat human as human. If you want me to do otherwise. Im so sorry. I didnt choose to come here. My KL boss asked me to come. He treated me not bad. I am merely lending my hand to him. He needs people to be here. So Im not your toy here. Give me trouble, and I will give you some.
