Conquering Mount Kinabalu

It has been 2 days after the tiring but fun trip to Mount Kinabalu and Poring Hot Spring

I’d say…the trip with newly-acquaintance-friends was fun and adventurous…I had a great time getting to know new faces and new jokes…bunyi macam singa si Kuai consider joke terbaru juga..haha..you’re one hell of a girl Kuai…I don’t know how long one can survive if you were to join a hunting trip at night…haha….unique yet special..

First Day (12th Feb 2009)
First day…everyone was nervous…or was it only me? because I’m a very shy person ba...I kind of arrived earlier than expected and had to wait over 2 hours…no worries though…I wasn’t mad and nor saddened by that…not a biggie…understandable ba Kuai, Zi and Defoo yang ‘main tapuk-tapuk’ di atas bukit…haha…then ada lagi rakaman video durang di dalam kereta...haha..Earlier I had already collected the rooms’ keys (Liwagu Rest House) but I wasn’t feeling good about entering the room without the others….so I waited la kenen dengan tabah until the blue coloured Viva arrived…that early evening about 7pm, I think…we had our dinner at the nearby restaurant, opposite the junction to Kinabalu Park…if I wasn’t mistaken, it’s called Pinarata…and had a nice small ice-breaking chat…I was with Kuai, Zi, Lumis, Pinny, Bopp, Defoo and Gidong at the same table whilst the others…Mamai, Sumpitz, Gurangak, Dogoes, Tom, Nokurogia and Kupi at another table next to us (click their names to get more updates and pictures)….right after dinner, the entire members went up to the Liwagu Rest House and had a nice warm shower in the darkness…another ice breaking afterwards where each of us had to introduce ourselves to the members...then the climax of the night was a bottle of Chivas courtesy of Gurangak along with fun game of cards…

Second Day (13th Feb 2009)
As early as 6am..I woke up and washed my face...went down to the Raflesia Restaurant to have my breakfast...I was so hungry and I couldn’t bare any longer to throw some shit out of my ass….terkimut-kimut terkena air sejuk...haha…the bathroom door in our room can not be locked even closed ba..hehe..nanti terbangun orang dengar hembusan nafas dari belakang…haha…I had a decent breakfast buffet…fried rice+egg+waffle+bread+orange juice…then another cup of hot coffee with the others at the Liwagu Rest House before we spent another an hour waiting for the bus to transport us to the Timpohon Gate as well as an arrangement for porters to carry some others stuffs to our next stop at the mid-top of Mount Kinabalu….several group pictures were taken and at around 9:20am we off to the Timpohon Gate then began our journey up to Laban Rata stop…we left the Tompohon Gate at around 9:40am that morning…I was with Mamai, Tom, Sumpitz leading the way up but later after the 4th hut…there were only me and Sumpitz struggling to reach Laban Rata stop..Mamai and Tom arrived and had their lunch at Laban Rata Café about 20 minutes earlier than me and Sumpitz…if I wasn’t mistaken it was already 30 minutes past 2pm…four of us then went to the rest house where we were planned to stay/rest….had our rest/sleep whilst waiting the others to arrive…and finally at about 6pm, everyone was there resting and some chatting about about their journey up from Timpohon Gate…spent the whole night inside the rest house to get enough rest before another challenge to the Low’s Peak of Mount Kinabalu at 2:30am….Kuai Love introduced us with her friend ‘L’ and she was kind enough to prepare a decent breakfast for us (Me, Mamai, Defoo, Kuai, Zi, Tom and Nokurogia)..Thanks kio L…hehe..ada apple and orange lagi..haha…

Third Day (14th Feb 2009)
We walked from Laban Rata at about 2:30am slowly making our way up to the peak….climbing up the rocky mountain using ready made rope and several staircase to heaven was difficult enough…it was to me…and I’m pretty sure most of the members felt the same tiredness as me…except for Mamai who always looked strong..maintaininng his step towards the peak…there were me, Mamai and Dogoes when we reached the Sayat-Sayat Gate and when it was already 1km from the Low’s Peak….Dogoes was already way behind us, leaving me trying to keep up with Mamai’s pace…I failed and he left me when it was about 500m way up to the Low’s Peak…Mamai was the first to reach the Low’s Peak at about 5:20am that morning, followed by me and Dogoes couple of minutes later…then came Defoo, Sumpitz and Gurangak….Kuai was the first woman in the group to reach the Low’s Peak though…. too bad Pinny, Zi and Kopi didn’t make it to the top…at least you ladies tried kan…there’s always next time…Thanked God for the good weather we had during the whole trip up Mount Kinabalu…we were given a clear sky…bright moon and stars…calm night without any strong wind at all…..

To be continued….
