I’m not gonna lie: My fitness level is lousy and I found hiking at Bukit Wawasan, Puchong challenging. To give context, this was my first hike in 5 months since my hike at Setia Alam, first hike since completion of treatment 3 weeks ago and second hike this year.
Prior to the hike when I read blogs and reviews about this hiking trail, I was under the impression that it’s an easy hike. I found it easier than Ah Pek Hill (which was a killer to me) but harder than any other hikes I’ve blogged about so far. Continue reading Bukit Wawasan, Puchong Hiking
My mom always go hiking at Setia Ecopark, Setia Alam with her friends but I’ve never been there because our schedule never matched. I wanted to go hiking one weekend but didn’t know where to go so I tagged along with them instead.
It was my first hike since my major surgery in end Jan to remove 26cm of my colon. #achievementunlocked
I need to exercise 3 days a week they say. I need to go outdoor for oxygen and negative ions they say. But my surgeon says I can’t exercise yet so I took a nature walk at Taman Rakyat, Klang instead.
My first memories of Taman Rakyat were during my childhood when my mom would wake the siblings up on Sunday mornings for a hike. I remember the hike being tiring and pretty scary (due to the height) for a primary school kid. In recent years however, I don’t visit Taman Rakyat that much anymore. Regardless, the park remained as one of the most popular (if not the most popular) parks in Klang. Continue reading Nature Walk at Taman Rakyat, Klang Feb 2016
Seriously, I’ve never heard of this automated baseball batting cage in 1 Utama until the gang suggested baseball for our supposedly-monthly fitness activity. Play baseball at the rooftop of 1 Utama Shopping Centre? Is it a new business? Apparently not. I did some digging and traced its website in 2006, saying it’s opening in May 2006! I suddenly feel like “katak di bawah tempurung”.
This was the website design in 2006. I thought it looked better than the one they have now: www.hit.com.my.
During college years, ice skating occasionally popped up as after-class activity because it’s fun and it’s accessible at Sunway Pyramid that’s just 15 minutes away from college. Somehow, it’s not a thing anymore upon leaving college and I thought it’d be interesting to do ice skating at Sunway Pyramid Ice as fitness activity with friends this weekend.
Not sure what happened but somehow I have been hiking more often since I started this blog and thus the frequency of hiking posts. About two weeks ago, I went hiking at FRIM Kepong (Forest Research Institute of Malaysia) with a few friends because we learned that there’s a Canopy Walkway. Continue reading Hiking at FRIM Kepong
If you’re a city dweller who doesn’t exercise and is considering hiking at Ah Pek Hill (or Bukit Putih), read on. I just Googled for blog posts relating to Ah Pek Hill hiking and the top results do not sound like my experience at all. I must be the most noob of the noob hikers-wannabe.
