Of FRIM and Fireworks

Over the weekend, I went to FRIM (Forest Research Institute Malaysia) for an outdoor outing and jungle trekking organise by Medic CG. We played games, went to the waterfall (attempted to get to the highest top but dats not possible cz the trek gets way too slippery n dangerous), some of us got bitten by leeches (but i managed to get away leech-free!hurray..haha) and jungle trek. The jungle trekking was reali informative as the guide intro to us the various habitants of the reserve forest. Some of the forest habitants include the Brazillian Arapaima Gigantus (there are 3 of dem), eagles and hornbills nest, wild boar, a 15ft long python (it is popular for its story of fighting wif the king cobra in a bush last yr n eating up the cobra after dat), Kacip Fatimah n Tongkat Ali plant (female n male viagra plant respectively), the Merbau tree, Engkabung and many many more. Besides this is the oldest tropical rainforest in Msia with many many tall tall trees that form canopies and block out almost all the sun. At the end of the day, i felt reali happy and truly enjoy myself thruout the whole outing despite the rain in the morning and an old uncle who nearly spoils everythin by purposely spitting his phlegm near the waterfall (how can any1 be so unenvironmental frenly and unhygienic).

After a tired day..

On Fri, me, BS, JW, MS, Kat n HF went to Putrajaya to watch the fireworks display by team Global. It was a non competition nite so ders very few ppl compare to competition nites, and we managed to get a very good spot to watched the 6 min fireworks display for free. But its so beautiful. Life is jz like the fireworks sometimes, don u tink? The beauty nv last long. It will b beautiful for a while, then fade, some ugly things will happen, den d next fireworks come and its beautiful again. This video is the last segment of the fireworks display. We also took some crazy pics on the road dat no 1 will ever believe we r medical students if we tell dem dat nite ..haha..

Some pics,

Looks like meteor rite?

Part of the road was closed for the competiton. The road 'belongs' to me for the nite! haha

Salute to Msia 50th independence
