Insanity is a wonderful thing

Yes, insanity is truly a wonderful thing. Only insanity can make me go for a 11km run at 11pm after spending 13 long mentally exhausting hours at work.

And i ran my personal best. Heart rate was 74%, speed was 9.2km/h when my average is 78%, 8.8km/h!

California climbing road trip - 2008!

Eugene, Chris, PJ & I have decided to plan for a climbing trip to California in June/July 2008. Hopefully, my green card would have arrived by then.

The plan is to rent a van or something and travel to Yosemite, the climbing mecca in California. We'll camp out in the National Parks and stay with friends and relatives whenever we can.

We hope to see wide open spaces and have long roads to travel on..

And have to put on warm clothing to climb (and look cool) because it's so freakin cold.

A good view from the climbing site would be nice.

I must.. have.. my.. Habit burger again...

Not forgetting my beer of course.

You'd never realise our air is so bad until you're at a place like this. Damn, i miss the air..

Pei Jun's KL pictures

That handbag looks so right on Chris.. and Pei Jun is holding up the really cool robot shirt i bought.

Tired out after climbing at Batu Caves and having a good shopping session in town.

I now know that Chris does NOT spot me when i begin a climb. By the way, i'm climbing a 7a route which i managed to flash.

Expressing some brotherly love here. If only Eugene was there to complete the threesome. Next time i guess.

Climbing in KL

Left for a short climbing trip with Dan Wen, Chris and Pei Jun early Thursday morning to Kuala Lumpur. Plan was to climb at Camp 5 on thursday afernoon and on Saturday and at Batu Caves on Friday. We took the 11pm coach home on Saturday and arrived home at 5am on Sunday morning where i proceeded to spend the whole day in bed.

We had ajoining rooms at the Radius International Hotel. Chris, being an SIA employee had a special rate. It is conveniently located near Bukit Bintang shopping area.

In Camp 5 again after waiting for a year.

Pei Jun couldn't contain her excitement.

Her excitement became contagious.

Dan Wen on 'Shiok Sendiri 6a+' Nyamuk wall, Batu Caves. It's a 28m high route! Chris checking me out with those shifty eyes of his.
It has a very balancy start.

I think my next trip to KL will only be a Camp 5 climbing trip. Batu Caves is nice but not worth the effort in having to bring so much climbing equipment. At Camp 5, all you need is your personal equipment and a rope.. and in my case, a 40m rope (instead of 60m)!

But overall, it was a good trip because:
1. Climb at Camp 5 was great (despite the white bitch).

2. Got to eat at my favourite Italian restaurant (See July 06's blog post) at 1 Utama Shopping Centre.

3. Great shopping! Bought a nice adidas jacket for only S$94.00 plus some other cool t-shirts.

I did not enjoy it because:

1. My mood was somehow affected. Whether it was because of work worries or me wishing she was there with me, i don't know..
