Sabah : Mt Kinabalu

Entrance to the "starting point" for the enthusiastic climbers who want to conquer Mt Kinabalu (the tallest mountain in South East Asia with the height of 4,101m).

The "Hall of Frame" - The 19th Mount Kinabalu International Climbaton 2005. My name will never appear on the board unless I photoshop the picture :P *grin*

Mmmm.... The "anaemic" looking trees which require blood transfusion :P

The climb (up Mount Kinabalu) begins at the Timpohon Hut/Pondok Timpohon (located at the 1866 m altitude). Nope, I didn't climb the Mt Kinabalu (might be I will do so the next time, might be not.... )

I love this - The Misty View. Fresh Cool Air and Refreshing Cold Breeze. We can temporary forget about the haze which hit the whole Malaysia during that period of time (early October), whereby the API hits unhealthy value in several places.

I can 101% assure u this is definitely NOT haze (else I will cabut as fast as I can..) :P

Two successful climbers on their way back from the summit trail, to Pondok Timpohon. Might be I will take up the challenge in the future? Mmmm... or might be not? Let's see...

And I was amazed with the attires they wore for the climb. Shorts? It is freezing cold at the summit of the mountain in the early morning. Nah... they must had changed their attires somewhere on their way :P

Leaves with different colour..

Happy today? No la~ frustrated got la, thanks to assignment.

I commented in Chinese because I found it easier to convey what I want to mean in Chinese (for that particular sentence only).

"Slim and sexy"?? =.="
