HSBC Muddy Walk!

No project on the 23rd so we actually had a volunteers bonding session! It was initially a karaoke session but somehow it ended up as trekking, which I don’t mind too because I need some exercise!

Was disappointed for a moment when it was raining in the morning; thought it would be cancelled. Thank goodness the rain stopped, but it became a super wet and muddy walk =X

It’s my second time doing the HSBC treetop walk this time, though we took a much shorter route by starting from Venus Drive instead of MacRitchie, since we only had limited time to trek~

Puddles everywhere!

And muddy ground!

Legs were full of mud splashed on…

Rocky paths

More wet and rocky paths…

And as a result of all the rocky paths, the sole of my shoe started coming off! And we were not even halfway through the trek! Hahaha! Thank goodness I brought my slippers, but I still continued with this pair till it really gave way~

Actually it wasn’t a tiring trek to me at all, cause I can really walk. But somehow our best sportsman – Mr Law was starting to feel tired and kept asking for breaks, on the pretext that he’s scared we the sheep might be tired, so he as the shepherd gotta make sure we rest well -_- Look who’s the one with a walking stick!

Another of the 38264978 breaks that the shepherd asked for 😛

Since it was still early and we took quite a short time to reach the midpoint, we decided to explore the Jelutong tower~ My first time up there!

The only building view available from the top that is not blocked by trees~

Other view – trees, trees and more trees!

Can see that Jenelle is extremely irritated to selfie with us…LOL

The journey back to Venus walk was nothing less than wet, muddy, rocky paths again~ But I still had a good time because we sweated a lot, so it was definitely a good exercise! Despite the dirt and all, it was worthwhile; I mean that’s what trekking is all about anyway (:

And at the end of the whole 2 hours plus trek, my 9-year old shoes finally gave way! Not only did both the frictional layers came off, the entire sole came off too! Hahaha! I guess it was really time to bid farewell x.x

Headed over to Thomson to meet the rest for dinner at Prata House! And the big-size murtabak is really BIGGG!

The expression tells everything…LOL

A bigger group, a noisier night!

Moved off to Udders for dessert even though everyone was damn full~ Since it’s rare that they are in this area because it’s usually Kovan that we hang out, of course gotta let them explore the area a bit! 😀
