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!)

picture from google search

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.....

  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 !! :)

  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!
