Hash Run at Seranao,Kapit

Since last week, I've been waking up in the middle of the night. Apart from the rare burning midnight oil back in Uni life, I can't recall developing sleeping disorders. Is something bothering my sleep? What is it...

Btw, I drafted a blog entry regarding my first Hash House Harriers Seranao Hike yesterday. Tried to publish 5 times, but due to poor Internet connection, I deleted it, not really satisfied with that piece anyway.

( The Hash House Harriers (abbreviated to HHH, H3, or referred to simply as Hashing) is an international group of non-competitive running, social and drinking clubs. An event organized by a club is known as a Hash or Hash Run, with participants calling themselves Hashers or Hares and Hounds. - wikipedia

Overall, it was a memorable experience; observing how uncles and aunties (oldest participant, age 70, from Kuching) enjoyed the 3hours hike, free flow of Heineken, and their *xxxx* songs. Sorry left knee, I left a small piece of flesh in the jungle. Can you recall when's the last time you fell and injured yourself? I do. During my ROS at JB. Like yesterday, I fell awkwardly and laughed while picking myself up. Haha!

Mom was so worried when I told her about the death of a teacher who was infected by the Rat Urine Disease at the waterfall few months back. She advised me not to join those dangerous sports. I've no idea since when I developed the interest in outdoor sports. Honestly, I'm not good in any of the sports. I love to swim but I never won a medal. I enjoy playing badminton but I don't see improvement in my skills. As for hiking, I would ALWAYS question myself 'Why don't I just stay home, under the comforters instead of wearing myself out by dirtying my hands' every time I was catching my breath. BUT, after every climb, I would be looking forward to the next climb.

Hm...wonder if guys really like girls who are out going. Perhaps I should ask my ex if my playfulness is one of the reason of...

If I'm a man, I'd hope my wife would be someone who prepares meals and waits for me to come home from work; instead of having her injured and mixing with guys.

Nevertheless, I think I won't give up my hobby which makes me happy. Sorry mom, I promise to be careful and the wound is healing, don't worry. Hiking gives me a sense of accomplishment and one will be awed by what Mother Nature has in store to please your eyes along the way. Personally, I think hiking is one the romantic-activity-to-do with your spouse. Are you willing to wait for her? I've witnessed a guy left who left his gf behind just to win the title of being the first to reach the peak. It's a jungle! Not Mid Valley! Well, his reward was cold shoulders by his gf at the end of the climb, and a few 'teguran' from friends. I don't remember them hiking anymore after that incident 3 years ago. The good news is, they are happily married with a baby now =D


  1. Keeping fit is a good thing. Anyway, never be ashamed of the things you love even though people you love may not understand. It fuels your soul.

  2. Guess all parents are worried for their precious' safety :) Thanks for your words of encouragement :)
