Batu Bukit Chondong - short and sweet hike

It's been a while I have not updated my blog. Well, I picked up hiking as hobby in the past one year and I decided to share some of the trails here.

Batu Bukit Chondong, probably one of the shortest hiking trail in Klang Valley with a breathtaking view.

It starts with an uphill climb following a chain link fence on the left. You will ducked your way through a dense bamboo grove. I love the bamboo as it blocks the sun, making a shady walk.

It's all the way uphill after the bamboo grove until you confronted by a rock wall, where the peak is right after it.

The most challenging part of the hike is to scramble over tree roots and rope to hoist yourself across big rocks to reach the peak. Hard work paid off when you see the view from the peak. There are a few spots for photography at the peak.

It's takes about 20 minutes to reach the peak and another 20 minutes downhill.

Here are some photos of the trail.

The peak is rocky, and you have to do a bit of climbing to move around.

Singapore

What comes into your mind when we say Singapore? To me, it's just another busy city which has nothing special. My most recent visit to this 721.5 km2 piece of land has proved me wrong.

Being a Malaysian living in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore is just an hour flight away. I have been travelling to Singapore for close to 10 times, but yet to really do a full tour around the island.


Studio M hotel

My 3D2N tour starts by checking in to the sleekly Studio M hotel, a loft inspired designer boutique hotel located next to the Alkaff Bridge, Robertson Walk is just 3mins walking distance and Clarke Quay is just 10mins walk from the hotel.

Since it's an unplanned trip, and we decided to only go free and easy, hence we never struggle on time and just decide where to visit on the spot. So it's completely stress free tour!

Here are some photos taken during the trip. I did a big mistake for not bringing my DSLR this round, however, my Huawei P10 Plus did a good job in capturing those memories.

Paramotoring-Pulau Indah

This is nothing to do about photography but something that I would like to share here.

I tend to accompany many people for activities or trips, I am just not that adventurous person that daring to things alone; however this time I decided to go for paramotoring alone even though all of my friends cannot make it. This is something that I would love to try in my life. 

So it's a half day activities, flying a tiny aircraft-they called. A very good experience although I'm quite worried that the whole machine will collapse due to the strong wind, but we made it!

This is like the challenges we face everyday in our life, facing turbulence that hits directly on your skin over thousand feet above the ground, you are nervous but you know as long as you are fully equipped, patient enough and stay strong to fight back, you will make it through and when time comes that you need to land, stay calm, off the engine and make a free fall, when you are skillful enough to control you will land smoothly.

Some photos to share. It's beautiful up there the visibility is good today and we are lucky to have rainbow as a bonus.

Macau - Food Version

I normally don't blog about food for my trips...well, I'm going to do an exception this round,
as it is too good and I would like to recommend.


Must Try 路環漢記手打咖啡

The coffee is good, don't ask me why I travel so far for maggi,
this is what the locals have for breakfast and I have to blend in the culture. :)
