My Soon-To-Be Torture In Gua Gendang

Gua Gendang, this name sends "shivers down my spine" these days...

Call me spoilsport or in cantonese "siyeh"... yes, I am one... I never like adventures and to travel in discomfort and in another few days, I will be experiencing just that... sobbb....

Call it "teambuilding course" and those words make me sigh... but then, it is all part of work, somehow after some "pushing and shoving," I still have to go regardless.... sobbb...

Today I did some research on this place called Kolam Panas Chalet, Pengkalan Hulu (Hot Spring Chalets)... I want to prepare myself the "scenerio" , what and where and how this place is like... (see, i m siyeh one!)

Going to the Gendang Cave too, anyone here been there yet?
Any climbing need to be done?
Any danger going in? Leeches? Bats? Cockroaches?
I have height and water phobia...
A real torturing trip..
I sigh and sigh again..
but no choice.... A MUST trip!
If you can't beat them, you got to join them.....

  2. Yeah.. don't look at the negative side.. look at the bright side.. the fresh air in the cave that smells like bat's poo.. the crocodiles in da river... muahahahhahaha... no worries lah claire.. just.. have fun! :D

  3. Teambuilding event.. your colleagues must be adventurous people, choosing that location.

    Anyway, don't think too badly of it, especially so since you haven't tried it yet. It should be an interesting place, take some pictures and share with us here when you're back !! :)

  4. Let's think positive. You are selected because they can see the potential of you in helping them build up the working spirit among your colleagues... Just do it... Yeah!

  11. is this part of the "rela' thing that you were talking about? just in case bring some balm along just in case the mosquitoes come welcoming you!

  12. yearning for such event and you don't like it. Maybe u should suggest them to climb Mount Kinabalu next year.

  13. Come, trade place wif me. I like this kind of things. =D

    ps: I'll pray so that time will pass fast for you and God will keep you safe, ok?

  14. Oh, I'm so sorry, this is causing you to be stressed out!! So they make you go? When do you leave and for how long? It looks peaceful and pretty, maybe it will be more like a restful spa? I am very afraid of heights, too!!! Yes, last time I had to go up on the Skyline Drive, I peed my pants! Better bring extra panties!! Will they let you take pictures, I hope!

  15. Next time suggest to your management "no need to go to Gua whatever,, to team building, ,there is also a big rock in Penang to do likewise,,,, very big big rock,, called Hard Rock,,, see also got rock ma,, but this is Hard Rock Hotel..syiok betul,,,

  16. Omigawd!!! At our age, things like this don't look too exciting... But you're slim, fit and active - sap-sap-sui!!! Good luck...and have fun. I'm sure you can! LOL!!!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!
