"Who says poets are so enthralled with mountains? Mountains,mountains, mountains— I've raved on and on, and they're still
clamoring for attention. A thousand peaks, ten thousand ridges:it's too much for me. If I climb an hour, I need to rest for three.
When your desk is piled full, you just can't add anything more,and when your withered stomach is full, who can keep eating?
So what good's even a faint scrap of mist or kingfisher-green?I'll wrap it all up, send the whole bundle off to my city friends"
The Brat spent 3days and 2 nights at National Park, Pahang. Admittedly the brat has the heart that every explorer and outdoor lovers need, but unfortunately with a stamina that is weaker than thread cut with a scissors. Thus the highlighted quote "it's too much for me. If I climb an hour, I need to rest for three".
Nevertheless, despite the difficulties and problems the brat needed to face, it didn't hinder me from enjoying my visit as well as appreciating what mother nature preserved for us there.
The first thing that the Brat feels is well, -tiny- just look at how the people are compared to some of very old trees.
Okay so the journey continues deep into the jungle (well, not so deep or we would've crossed pass with tigers and elephants) anyway, on the first few steps into the wilderness, the Brat met a little friend called millie. - Her full name is millipede.
|guys, say hi! to Millie|
This, blue-alien-like colored leaves according to Mr. Guide for the day is the prove of how old our forest are. If you think 24 years is OLD, try 240 000 years! He said that the plant changes color so that it would not need too much sunlight.
|He leaves really does look shiny like that.|
I just want to post up this plant because it has the same name as me. Liana (though different spelling). It's the one swirling around the big
Alright, next stop the canopy walkway.
|They should take me as their model for this lols~ (despite being sweaty as hell)|
And after that, more hiking, and finally we reached the top!!!!
No, I lied. I never reached the top. Do not have the energy. And I do not wish to lag the team's schedule (yes, it's an excuse). lols~ Anyway, after (long, exhausting, foot numbing) way back and a bit of rest, we're off for rapid shooting experience. Taking the speedboats, we were off to visit the Batek settlements (they are one of Orang Asli tribe).
We arrived there safely, and totally drenched. Courtesy of our guide with a wicked sense of humor. Don't get me wrong. It was the WICKED-est fun I've had in such a long time. Pure adrenaline rush and wickedness you can't find in any other rides. You'd have to try it yourself to know.
|Oh yes, we were drenched from head to toe|
|and not to mention skilled!|
Of course, I wouldn't miss the chance of trying out their weaponry.
And our poor target of the day is the yellow bear.
All in all the Brat had a marvellous time at The National Park, Pahang. You should give a visit to the place too! A bit of nature can't hurt right??
