Jungle Trekking to Chemerong Waterfall

Me against Chemerong Waterfall (I'm tiny!)

I had a great weekend, trekking all the way to Chemerong Waterfall which took approximately 1 hour (but very tiring what with all the steep hills, evil tree roots and slippery ground, I feel lucky that my limbs are intact...) It was an event organized by UMT's very own Water Recreation Club and we were there on the pretense of picking up rubbish but ended up splashing away instead. (Truth be told, the waterfall was pretty clean anyway so we mostly picked up after ourselves...)

Anyway, I met some people who were really nice and I don't regret going (at least that's what I tell myself) even though I have scratches and bruises from the trip. As a result of all the pain I've endured, emotionally and physically (I'm such a drama queen!), I've gathered a short list for dummies like me who are intending on partaking in something like this in the future:

Jungle Trekking Rule Number 1:
Do not wear slippers.
Especially your favorite Hush Puppies slippers. (They will not keep you ALIVE.) And flimsy shoes because I noticed a couple of people's shoes were breaking apart after the trip.

Jungle Trekking Rule Number 2:
Preferably bring a back pack. Those one-shoulder things are difficult to handle when you're hopping over fallen tree logs...

Jungle Trekking Rule Number 3:
Do not use anything white! Unless you have faith in your laundry detergent or don't mind it being see-through after sweating, then by all means... (You were warned.) There goes my white bag... :-(

That's all for today folks! Back to the 1001 things I have to get done this week...
[Current playlist fave: Tiara - Lies & Brown Eyed Girls - Abracadabra]

The song's nice-ish but watching the singers annoy me to no end, so I just listen to them. Better that way...

And I'm still obsessed with the Abracadabra song! I LOVE their new image...

Good for you, I think I narrowly escaped a serious accident at the waterfall (by a hair!), haha... My uni might be closed soon... UM still going strong?

Funniest Malaysian Names!

I laughed out loud for 10 straight minutes reading this old post at Mr. Badak's website! If you must know, I was searching for the meaning of mulau (crazy in Kadazan) because I wasn't quite sure of the meaning (I'm a poor excuse for a Kadazan), and I stumbled across this. It's not even the post itself (about an unfortunate man named Mulau bin Burit) that was the absolute funniest, it was the commenters! Teachers and government workers come across the funniest names...

Imagine being named...

Injin A/L Bot (changed his name already...)

Lee Je Hoon to Belt Some Notes for Paparotti!

How cute is this piece of news? Everybody's favorite actor gone for military service, Lee Je Hoon, is acting as a gangster who wants to sing! Jang Ho (Lee Je Hoon) has a talented voice, but because of his poor family background, he became a gang member. Nevertheless, Jang Ho still likes to sing and desperately wants to become a singer. He enlists the help of Sang Jin (Han Suk Kyu) who used to be a well regarded performer in Italy, but is now a music teacher at a local high school in a small city. He's not the most passionate of teachers. Kang So Ra plays Sook Hee, a classmate who has a crush on Jang Ho. 
This movie is based on the true story of Kim Ho Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV Show, Star King, on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his back ground story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest. Stills and the …

Gawky Poses People Do Best Forgotten

Ever seen a pose that you thought looked terrible even though the person doing it is a mega hot fiiiiiine piece of...well, you get my drift. I'm sure if I asked a guy, they would have plenty of other suggestions but here are just three that occurred to me while typing out this post.

1. The Angry Chicken Pose

E.g. Sohee from the Wonder Girls (middle girl) - BTW their new album WONDER WORLD is out! Check it out! :)

I have never seen anyone pull this off and still look attractive. (Also known as The Stomach Ache or Pelvic Thrust)

2. Woman Draped on a Car Pose

No offense to auto babe ladies everywhere, but I can never find this not tacky. It must be difficult to twist yourself in a sultry pose on a heap of metal (something I, a mere mortal, can never hope to achieve) and I'm glad that at least you're being paid for it.

3. Cutesy Asian Poses

There's a whole multitude of these but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the like. E.g. Peace Sign (I'm totally guilty of this…
