Lonely Malaysian - Bah Magoh/Long Sheridan

I am very touched by some of my friends initiatives in exploring Malaysia in its true sense. Every year,he takes time off to visit the interior of Sarawak to bring some of these people hope and where possible gifts. I am also amazed at the pluckiness of another friend of mine and this particular girl that has managed to transit from a Triathlete into what I feel is photojournalist. This post is dedicated these friends.

It is amazing that in our endeavour to achieve a state of developed country, there are still people who lived below the poverty line. Are we forgeting these people?Who are looking into the affairs of these Penans. ?

I hope she doesn't mind me saying this, but i think this girl is very plucky and brave to have roughed it out in places where even the trekker had thought it risky, took a lot of tumble and with the desmise of her shoes, had to survive on slippers for most of the trekking. Salute!!!

LOL, so Boon Foo told you that I had to trek in my Crocs at some point, eh? Did he mentioned I lost a toenail as well and ate some really INTERESTING STUFF? Hahahahah ...

Faie: Yes, he told me most of the stuff minus the eating portion. I thinks he thinks the world of you now or eother he has under estimated you before this. I think you surprise him.

Bola2api: Yup, i know she is the FEAR FACTOR chick. But for her to rough it out and be one with nature, i do take my hats off, becoz, even i may have problems accepting the situation ;-)
