i just found out there is a basement (LG) level in pasaraya anika!!!! you can buy foodstuff and shampoos and insect repellent there!!!!! i feel like indiana jones!!! i was bitching so much about pasaraya anika that i didnt realise that jumped into conclusion too early. i extend my apologies to pasaraya anika. j.co coming to pasaraya anika i heard?
this sunday is d-day. i am going to embark on my first ever jungle trekking!!! you see, gurun is at the foothill of gunung jerai. there is this huge waterfall smack in the middle of the hill, or should i say halfway up the hill. i reckon the vertical drop of the waterfall is at least 50m!!! it looks magnificent! usually its a gentle stream coming to the edge. however, it turns into a morbid beast after a heavy downpour on the hill!!! i would wait for the chance to capture it on photo, and post it. okok.......now, everytime i see the waterwall, i feel the attraction to it. something inside my head tells me..."you must trek the path to the waterfall".....either i am getting schizophrenic, or my adventure-cells are running on over-drive.
i promise i promise photos in the next entry. from afar, it looks like a good 2-3 hours journey along the river up to the waterfall. we've decided to take the river path than the trekkers' path, but things could change if we have some last minute hesitation. my walking gear is my loyal newbalance sneakers, my leather mid-cut boots have seen better days. i shall stock my backpack with lotsa energy snacks and water. i shall protect my torso with my everlasting timberland all weather jacket that has an attached hood, which would be very handy as the weather is susceptible to drastic changes within a matter of hours. long cargo pants tucked inside my socks, to prevent the nasty leeches from meeting their larger and nastier counterpart inside my pants. compass, swiss army knife, parang, some basic survival kit. ok.......i'm all set for this sunday then!!! we leave 7am.
