I love Penang

pickles for sale

Life has become more intense in a good way I suppose; this month has been somewhat an industrious one. Well at least from my point of view hihi…

But we’re not really going into all the details of all the things that went through. Possibly I’m gonna be a bit sentimental this time, we all do that some times don’t we.

U know, Penang has a special place in my heart but then again certainly many others would share the same sentiment as I do. Well, there was a period in my childhood when my father was studying at USM, and those were the times when it was not so crowded, the KOMTAR was like KLCC and the Penang bridge could still accomodate the traffic both ways in and out of the Island. I still remember the crispy oversived groeng pisang which is extinct now I suppose, the sweet putu piring and the fish head curry which sadly I could not recall the place.

I was in Penang earlier this month, spent a few days there for work and the other times getting lost in the island in my juvenile quests :) Oh... did I tell u that while waiting for my colleague, before dinner I spent some time watching some big bikes being unloaded from a truck at a shop. There were two beauties that really struck me. Just pleasure for the eyes now, but I'll get one soon.

I had these mission prioritized in my head when I get to know that I'd be staying there for a few days in Penang. Of course I've been here so0o many times but this is ultimately the first time ever that I scoured this island on my own. M definitely excited about this and some of the things that I did was to purchase pickles for my Aries and officemates, finding my way to Penang street savor the ever addictive Line Clear nasi Kandar and the final destination must be the cheap DVD's in Ferringhi !

these photos were meant to be with the the previous posting, since I badly need the first one for the month I've decided to just create a new post instead ;)

Now it's evident that I'm surrounded with fun loving people and lotsa love around!!!

Now that's not a lot of food...
only love is plenty not the food lol... !

excuse me...
who said I have the lesser appetite???

just ask our 'head honcho', he'll say
"Life is measured by the total sum of experience"
that's according to him is his motto, the other is "Have Fun!"

So u see, when we have fun and share the love, then everyone around us would feel the vibe!

We bring love and fun everywhere!

Brain Talk...

Out of all parts of our body, one that we give the utmost protection should be the head.

At least that’s what common sense would tell us to do right? But then, some people do insured other parts of their body instead of the one on top aite? Wink wink…

No offense to the nose, the eyes and ears and mouth though all of them are placed on our head but essentially it’s due to the vulnerable 1400g object that we call brain. That’s why we HAVE to protect it; after all it’s the one that pulls the strings. Sure we all have that don’t we? The helmet… has been the safekeeping of our precious brain for thousands of years, acting like the second skull to the brain. We talk about soldiers, motorcyclist, technicians so and so, almost everyone has got to wear them the common purpose of avoiding hazard that may squash the brain.

So what’s all the fuss about wearing a helmet when u climb? Most people don’t use them anyway. Have you seen anyone or any top climbers wearing a helmet? Why bother wearing a helmet, because it’s not convenient at all, expensive, a waste of space in your bag plus the not so macho look while climbing. Aaarrrghhhh…!!!!

In sports climbing when a climber attempts a difficult route, they need to be able to move freely and with real concentration. One just can’t do that with the helmet wrapping your head, at times blocking when you need to turn your neck, then it becomes the hazard instead of protection. Most upper grades routes are known to be massive roofs and overhangs. This makes the fall less dangerous since u’d be hanging from the roofs instead of falling on the rugged wall. Furthermore, an experienced climber could possibly assess the situation and danger better.

Now tell me, if u have a small kid would u want them to climb without any helmet? True, there’s only a small chance that some loose rocks would fall during the climb and yeah, probably there are other safety measures like the rope, harness, grigri so they’ll never end up hitting any parts of the wall don’t they? I’m not preaching over here, but just for the love of the sports and the people. I read in Simon’s blog last month on the death of Nick a climber from Australia at his favorite site due to scrappy boltings. No we don’t want to loose anyone for such reasons or anything of that sort.

One of the best things I've learned from climbing is that we should not learn from mistakes, instead we should LEARN NOT TO MAKE MISTAKES.

Dude, your LIFE IS WORTH MORE THAN A HELMET, someone promised to get me one ;)

Dream Big

When I was a little boy
I swore that I would change the world when I grew up
Nothing else would be enough

I see it everyday
We settled for safe
And lose ourselves along the way

'Coz if you don't dream big what's the use of dreaming
If you don't have faith there's nothing worth believing
It takes one look to make the stars worth reaching for
So reach out for something more

Took a well perfected plan
For me to finally understand
But it's not me
Faith is something I can see

I've wiped my tears away now it's time for a change
No I can't waste another day

'Coz if you don't dream big what's the use of dreaming
If you don't have faith there's nothing worth believing
It takes one look to make the stars worth reaching for

'Coz if you don't dream big what's the use of dreaming
If you don't have faith there's nothing worth believing
It takes one look to make the stars worth reaching for
So reach out for something more!
