The desire to excel. The passion to dedicate. The determination to see it through.

Day 1
Started our long drive to Cameron Highlands at 3.45am this morning! It's the first time I drove in the middle of the night in Malaysia! We trekked up the mossy forest to reach the summit of Gunung Brinchang and descended via tarmac road. The hike back was a lot longer than we expected (slightly over 11km back to our accommodation).

 Bakuteh lunch.

 The starting point for Gunung Brinchang.
 View of Gunung Brinchang.

 The ditch (with flowing water) we had to cross to continue the trek. 
This was fun!

 Montane forest!

 View from a clearing.

 The summit!

 That was a really muddy trail.

 View from the summit.

We decided (in the late afternoon) to head to Cameron Highlands for the weekend! This is the most impromptu trip ever! We're not making any accommodation bookings for a change. Just drive up and get a room!

Explored a little more of the Punggol Waterway this evening. Found the Punggol Promenade Fishing Deck they built though I think it's less likely to catch any fish there compared to the Punggol Jetty.

Warning: One photo contains potentially nauseating content.

All pieces are firmly stuck to the ground, so it's a little peculiar. 

The Fishing Deck - only artifical bait allowed.

Corpse of a mynah. Poor guy.

Watched The Vow today. The poster looks like it's a romantic comedy but it was rather heavy. It's inspired by a true story.

Kudos to Kim and Krickitt Carpenter!

We had our Cedar 4/O Class Gathering this evening, kind of like the 10 year anniversary since graduation! More than a quarter of the class turned up which is much better than any of the gatherings in years. Lots of good fun as usual!

LT let me drive her Tuscany! I had no idea the Tuscany was so powerful. She actually let me floor the accelerator. Nice.

Met pQ for dinner! We had zi char at Far East. They had this new dish: Salted Egg Pork. I love the sauce, it's just like the salted egg crab at Master Crab!

We then met WL for ice cream at Scoopz at Upp Thomson. They provide board games for free so we played this memory game called Sherlock. I've forgotten how fun good old board games can be! Great chill out place with great ice cream at a good price!

David Guetta sings good workout songs.

Lovin' productive days!

Believe. If you can believe it, you can achieve it. 

When I was younger, "it" was clearly defined. Now the question is, what should "it" be?

Woke up with a case of Achilles Tendinosis! At least I can still do some forms of exercise.

It seems each time I recover from something, another strikes me down. I'm literally falling apart! Age must be the issue.

Explored more of the Punggol Waterway this evening.
