more than meets the eyes

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.

Abt the LDP extension... extension??? Not enuff la... Just like the Penang Bridge, extend another lane, you think enuff? I demand for a second LDP!!! Haha.. *blek*

Abt the KL-Putrajaya highway, difficult to go to Putrajaya using the existing routes? Where got? Just a bit far, and hv to turn here turn there oni wat... really, I don't see the 'need' for a direct highway to the administration capital... ok, maybe cos i dun work there :P

Let's see... what other highways I wanna complain ha... hmmmm... as of now, tarak... :p

eh?...got cynical remarks in my last post meh?....takdak wor... only sarcasm.... hahahahahaha

yeah....i admit i am quite cynical. and sarcastic at times. but i laugh at myself too :P but...most of the time..i am a depressed pessimist. if i am not in any one of those categories...i am probably sleeping. :P

complaints?..i have one....ITS FREAKING EXPENSIVE!!! it makes me wonder...why do we have to pay for road tax anyway...since almost all of the hiways in kl are private.

you demand for a second ldp in pj? okok....lemme top that....my company is in a bidding war to extend the existing lrt line for a better coverage in subang-pj-damansara area..... :) hows that?

Oklor... Sarcastic Sheon (SS). Good nick, huh? :P

U shouldn't be depressed... you are a young man, full of hope, lotsa things coming yr way etc etc! No one should be depressed... life is short! Live an undepressed one!

LRT ah? Ever since I started driving ages ago, I nvr take public transport. What for? All the stations are so 'out of place'... So... I still demand for a second LDP!!! Haha.. Cannot build on top of the first one ah? :p

If I pay, I'd expect smooth traffic... not pay to queue in the jam!! Time is precious! Haha...

Hey, enjoy your Sunday trekking! ;)

SS, it's aneka not anika laa brader..

fyi, u think 2nd pg bridge is a good idea??
i think we are forced to use back the 1st bridge even after the 2nd bridge completed...
imagine 2 huge mosque in the middle of the bridge..
don tell me the bridge will not jam during praying period...

actually we really do need a second link. my own personal opinion is that when they designed the first bridge, they should've designed for a double-deck bridge, or a single deck bridge with the option of upgrading to a double decker.

the second bridge in my opinion is decided based on two factors, first is demand, second is political. however, the worst thing they could do, they did : to build two reststops smack in the middle of the bridge. and they're freaking ugly too!!! to me, that is typical malaysian mentality...
