Enzyme in the making!

kekeke..... recently me and frens have this craze of making enzyme... so far, my fren has done few bottles of them - red dragon fruit, white dragon fruit, and papaya... and yesterday another fren did some more - ginger lemongrass, guava...
well me on the other hand has tried making pear and pineapple...

Day 1 - 24th December 2007
this is the bottle of pear enzyme (in the making)

you have to sterilized all the utensil and bottle, clean your fruits and let them dry. cut the fruits into small cubes or slices. then place 1 layer of sugar blocks, follow by 1 layer of pear, then 1 layer of lemon, then go back to sugar blocks and so on until the last layer. but the last layer has to be sugar. then seal the bottle, store it in cool shaded area and wait for 1 week... open the cover, stir it a bit, then seal it again. wait for another week, by right, it is then considered done!

Day 2 - Xmas night...
this is my pear enzyme so far:

See how juicy the enzyme has become... kekeke... but the fruits on the top layer got a bit too dark... i don't have good feeling... strong feeling it will not work out... nvm lah, first time mah...
then, i spent another 1 hour doing the second bottle - this time it is pineapple and kiwi enzyme, same procedures, just replaced the pear with pineapple and kiwi.... kekekeke.... the bottle look like this:

Day 1: Xmas night...

Hopefully this one will also turn out fine.... kekekeke... i'm an impatient person... dunno if i can wait til 2 weeks... :P

day 2 of the pineapple + kiwi enzyme... the boxing day... here's the pic!!

Look nice leh... i think if this one doesn't get busuk after few days (touch wood), it will be very very nice to taste!!! :)

Sapa, Vietnam

This is the kind H'mong lady, whom helped my travel partner a lot throughout the hike.
Well, no doubt she intended to first help and then sell something to us, but her genuine kindness was natural and no great actor can fake that. It is just sad that commercialized tourism and quick way of earning money will eventually (or have already) gets to her or the ppl there... this really is the double edged knife kinda issue... on one hand tourism (supposedly) helps them earn more money, boast the economy, but at the same time corrupts their ways of living, made them lazy, and exactly how much money earned from the tourism directly benefit this group of minorities?

Photo taken at Sapa, Vietnam at 5th November 2007

Halong Bay, Vietnam

This is the photo i took on Halong Bay. The fishermen were working against such a breathtaking backdrop. but i was wondering, did they stop to admire the great nature, or they are so busy surviving. Similarly i was working in KL, did i really admire its surrounding. I've fallen into deep thoughts... what about life? Are we merely living? or have we ever truly understand and admire what we are doing now? Do we ever stop for a while, appreciate our surroundings?

从星期四开始就随父母回到了小鱼村班台, 因为是外婆死后一百日的祭日, 老家挤满了亲戚, 更多的是吱喳不停的小孩子. 我尽量躲在角落看书做自个儿的事, 毕竟我不喜欢小孩! 也不想他们来缠我... 哈哈!

几天前才出席了堂弟的婚礼, 现在却是白事, 生命无常, 颇玩味. 才在外公家里拜读了"相约星期二"(Tuesdays with Morrie), 相当赞成书中提到的好一些对生命及死亡的看法. 要道出自己的观点也许太难, 脑中的想法非常模糊. 嘿, 又有谁对生命及死亡如此抽象的概念能说得出个所以然?

书也读完,翻译也做得闷了, 表弟们转了又转的卫星电视台, 播放的尽是明星八卦无关痛痒的鸡皮蒜事, 突然觉得自己的生活充满了许多无聊的小事, 花了好多时间在不重要的人跟事上. 讨厌花心思在虚伪做作的人身上, 也讨厌写些吹嘘自己以赢得注目的文章来打发时间. 倒不如花时间在旅游中探看不同的人生百态, 从而沉淀及重新思考本身的定位和生活未来的方向. 好期待即将踏上越南的路程哦!

photo storytelling

2 years ago, i returned to Penang with this black and white cert - which stated the peak is 4095.2m, but i only managed to hike up some 3272m...

i didn't really felt defeated, cause i knew myself, i am just not fit to finish that task.

so 2 years later, last week, i returned to KL with this beautiful full colored, embossed cert, that stated i have made it to the peak...

first, we have to register ourselves at the Kinabalu Park head quarter near Timpohon. and outside its office, we could see our destination quite clearly that day...

above the clouds, there where we wanted to go:

Mount KK summit.

taking the route as illustrated here in this postcard:

I took 3 hours from Laban Rata Resthouse (the brightest spot on the postcard), follow exactly the white dotted line to Low's Peak (the highest peak).

and shortly after the sunrise, on my way down Low's peak, i snapped this photo:

it is magnificent, no? this is the Kinabalu South peak. and i think this is the most beautiful peak of all.

Saturday, May 05, 2007

scratch off 1 item from my list of things to do before i die.

~ 3rd May 2007 thursday 5.30am ~

ya, and this time i finally stepped on Low's Peak, the highest summit of Mount Kinabalu.

on 4095.2m above sea level, i was thrilled to tears.

no no, it is definitely nothing tough for physically fit ppl, but it is an achievement, personal achievement for myself.

i was standing on the spot of these 2 ppl in the photo... 5.05am... 0.5km away from the highest peak... my mind was telling me to give up, it was too tiring, your legs would suffer so much, you are out of breath... but my heart was telling me the other things, that your friends are all waiting up there for you, the sun is about to rise, and you will regret if you give up now... so my feet kept on moving, step by step...

the day before this dusk, i have walked some 8.2km of trails through Mesilau route all the way to Laban Rata, where we stayed a night. i was carrying 10.5kg bag, panting ever so heavily every 100m... it was raining the last half of the hike, i was too tired to even rest for a snack or a sip of water. so in about 7 hours and 40 minutes of walking on my sore feet, i reached Laban Rata by 4pm.

when the white resthouse appeared before me, memory caught me - 2 years ago, i WAS here too! that time, my right knee was killing me, as if my knee cap was going to drop any minute... i knew then i could not make it to the summit due to the injury... which was true, the next morning 2 years ago i was watching my other teammates getting ready to conquer and wishing them goodlucks! bad news hit us that morning that due to heavy rain we were all forbid to go up to summit... boo... SO, this was my second attempt!! seeing that white resthouse - LABAN RATA, has so much meanings for me!!

we rest for a night, and by 2.30am, we were again hiking from Laban Rata with our head lamp, 3 layers of jackets, track pant, a bottle of "energy-boosting" plain water and a bar of snicker. it was dark and crowdy. everyone was walking slowly, perhaps haven't recovered from the pain we got from the previous hike... we followed each other's footprints slowly but nonstop, expected a hard climb of 3 hours, or more, to reach the summit before sunrise.

so, after so much hard work, on that spot i was stadning, my heart told my mind... YOU JUST CANNOT QUIT NOW!!!You just has to finish that damn 0.5km!!!!

Here i am, i told myself on the signpost that marked 4095.2m Low's Peak, i felt like i could achieve just anything! the chilling winds were blowing, but my heart was warm. no word can describe my feelings and the stunning views from the peak... no photo can fully depict the grand view of the huge granite rock that i was standing on... i just felt like everyone has to do it once in their lifetime. so, here i scratch out 1 item from the list of things to do before i die - i have no regret!!! :)))

(photos are from and not my own... when i got my photos from others' cameras, i will post them up!!)

WORLD VISION finding sponsors for 5,000 children

World Vision Logo - 10 Years In Malaysia.

Dear friends of World Vision

Thank you for your help in spreading the word about our mission in finding sponsors for 5,000 children this year.

You may be pleased to know that as at 20 March, 2,190 out of the 5,000 children have been sponsored by kind Malaysians.

However, 2,810 children are still waiting. If we can find sponsors for 15 children each day, beginning today, by the end of 2007, all 2,810 children will be given a chance to break the vicious cycle of poverty.

If you are receiving this email for the first time, we invite you to spread the word
by emailing the following e-card to your family & friends.

Every effort helps.
Thank you!


Warm regards,
World Vision Malaysia

Korea - 2nd day, part 3

The blue trail

it is sorta recreational trail, not much adventure really. tall trees, calm stream runs through valley, maple leaves on rocky routes, crystal clear pond... i guess i'll just let the photos do the talking:

silhouette of maple leaf and hue of maple colours

jade green pond, although the signboard said otherwise (it says the water is supposed to look BLUE). and me posing.

the walkway...

a look at the valley

A maple leaf trapped between rocks at the bottom of the clear pond.

Since it only took us a little less than 45 minutes to complete this trail, we still have some time for the red trail.

The red trail

now, this is how maple leaves turn red.

the bleeding tree. no photoshop here, it was THIS red!

maple leaves that we missed... if only we arrived 2 or 3 days earlier we would be able to catch up with the full red! but i guess nothing is going to be perfect, so i was contented to pose near this tree:

the low angle view of the tree trunk...

colourful patches of colours resembling the pattern of army uniform appear on the trunk... a very close look.

the veiny me posing before leaving this place...

we decided to leave this haven for all the hustle and bustle of city... we didn't complete the red trail due to time constrain. on the way out, we saw this banner:
cute cartoon characters eh... since the information booth has already opened, i jokingly asked the lady there whether the bears really appear. she answered almost impulsively "yes, they sometimes come out for food!" me and sis looky at each other, held our breath for a while... bloody hell, if only i know Korean to be able to read the signboards, we should have been more cautious!! hahahaha.... luckily we didn't become FOOD for the bears... :P then again, judging from the drawing on the banner, the bears look super-friendly to me.... maybe they are vegetarians??? yeah right. haha.

on our way back to the homestay, we came across this tree:
we have seen these trees all over the hills, people's gardens, roadsides along our bus journey here... we figured it should be persimmon, but we were not sure cause some of the fruits were so big and in heart shape.... mmmm.... but this tree here the fruits look like persimmon no doubt... and we were even more sure when we saw the shop kidna hanged these fruit to wind-dry them... later they would process them into biscuit form for sale... tried this round shape one, very sweet and juicy... but the heart/love shape one is big, but not so sweet and a bit hard and dry... hehe.

we went up to our room to pack our bags, at the same time the ajumma helped us call taxi to go to nogodan, another peak in the Jirisan national park. when the taxi arrived, we realized it's just a normal jeep, maybe belongs to the relative of this ajumma.... but nevermind lah, as long as we got the transport to leave this small town. we paid another Won25,000 (RM100) just to hop on this 30 minutes ride to the other hiking spot.... damn... so expensive!!!

it was a very bumpy trip, me and my sis felt almost wanna throw out already... when we arrived, we were so happy to just ran out from the jeep for some fresh air!!!........

(to be continued)
