On 3 rd of December, I followed a friend of mine to a camp place at Kerling. The place is a bit further from a well known picnic site in Ulu Yam, further than Batang Kali. Argh, get ur map out lah.
Anyway, this is the first time that I went 'off road', meaning that we went to the camp site with a 4x4 vehicle. In this instance, with Fahroe's Kembara. The road is not so rough, but there are certain stretches that really try my friend's 4x4 meager experience.
We reached the place quite late in the day, nearly 8 pm, so I had not the chance to survey the camping site. However, the gurgling brook really try my patience. The only thing deterring me from jumping into the water is the picture of me, with thousands of leeches sucking my blood dry. Bad imagination!
There are quite a lot of people up there, the major portion being the people from MARES and a group of 4x4 ethusiasts. Barbequing, chatting, catching up on news and meeting new friends seems to be the main agenda.
We went down at about 10.30 at night and reaches the safety of the main Kerling road at about 11++ at night. The distance between the Kerling main road at the camp site is only 7 km. But at night, we had to be extra careful of the road.
Anyway, looking forward to go again. Fahroe, jangan lah malu-malu bawak sayeeeeeeeerrrrrrr.
Currently, am not reading anything. Got problem with my eyes, blurr all the time. Am dreading to see the doctor, surely would get scolded. :(

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
