Preparation for Expedition to Mount KK – Gunung Bunga Buah

I visited Gunung Bunga Buah on Feb 17th, it’s my last training before expedition to Mount Kinabalu and I’m only blogging about it a month later.


Before everything, I’d like to convey that the leeches at Gunung Bunga Buah are lecherous (they rhyme!) I got bitten in the butt! I lost quite a lot of blood I think… and I did not even notice the bite until I got home. My mom saw blood stained on my pants and thought that I was having my menstruation until overflowed.


Yikes! Blood stains!

*Trying to exaggerate* It’s my suspicion that Gunung Bunga Buah is made of leeches!!!! Along the trail, me and my cousins screamed our heart out for help to remove the leeches trying so hard to bleed on us whenever there’s take-five point, or jumping here and there to avoid leeches.

I loathe leech!!!!!!!

Everyone busy checking whether or not we had been the victims of the blood-sucking worms…


The trail

Hehe, my creative piece of work!

Genting can be seen from the distance!

The whole journey took us 9 hours in total, 4 hours ascending, 1 hour break at the peak and 4 hours descending. No one ever told me that the trail was going to be that long. I only consumed 2 bar of kit-kat, 1 char siu bao and 500ml of water to fuel the whole journey! I was so hungry and dehydrated towards the last 1.5km and I fell asleep up at the peak!

Reaching the peak

Deep in slumber…

I requested Ah Love to help me take photo with sexy look. So, did i look sexy?


People are saying that we need at least 1 month of solid training to conquer Mount KK. For my case, I had training 1 month ago!

Coming up: my traumatic experience climbing up to Mount Kinabalu

The preparation: Gunung Angsi | Bukit Tabur |

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
