Just Another Climbing Trip to Yong Yap~~~ Day 5~~~ 20080504~~~

I think this was the best sleep ever since day 1 of Yong Yap trip...
One sleep till the morning... ^^...
Feeling refresh but yet the pain on both of my legs were getting worst...
Anyway... It was an easy morning...
Since the four wheels drives will only be available at 10am...
We really had plenty of time and there was no reason to rush for anything...
We took a really long breakfast... Then spend some time with the orang asli...
I was really sad to see how bad the condition was for the orang asli...
They do not have electricity... And the whole village only have two clean tap water source...
And the so call tap water was not really a proper tap water anyway...
It was just a pipe which lead the clean water source to the village...
And their main income was from us... The climbers... T_T...
Which you won't get people to climb Yong Yap everyday...
Before leaving the village... I had given all my food left from the climb to the villagers...
500g of rice and three pack of instant hot chocolate drink...
Not much actually but that's all that I had... T_T...
They even want those plastic bags and plastic bottle...
As to them they are quite valuable... How sad to see that as we can get so much of these plastic products everywhere in the city...
They are suppose to be the owner of this land...
But somehow they were living the poorest life among all the citizen of this country... T_T...
The team had agreed that next time if we ever go for any climb that passby any orang asli village...
We shall bring extra food to contribute to them...
And ironically there was a big banner hanging in the middle of the village saying that please vote for BN...



Before boarding our four wheels drive... Meet again with the biggest challenge of the climb... The bamboo bridge crossing... T_T...
Anyway... With the help of villagers everyone had cross the bridge save and sound...
You should see how easy for them to cross the bridge with two bulky backpacks...
While climbers like us had to crawl in all four... T_T...
Again a 30 minutes of very very bumpy ride to Kampung Raja in the four wheels drive...
And I hardly can made myself up after the drive and my butt was hurt due to the dumpy ride... T_T...
After resting a while in the nearby coffee shop...
It was time to say goodbye to the Penang team as they had decided to go to Ipod before back to Penang...
While four of us from the KL team will go on rotting all the way from Cameron to KL... ^^...



Our first stop of course was Brinchang...
In fact we stopped by all the way down Cameron Highland... ^^...
First we stop by a roll of store selling snacks and fruits and vegetables...
I got myself a strawberries ice cream and a small bowl of fried mushroom... Taste so nice... ^^...
And some fresh strawberries and baby tomatoes as well...
Then we went to a tea garden which I already forgot the name...
The view of the tea garden was really nice and peaceful...
Just that the legs started to hurt like hell...
And the stairs down the tea garden was really killing me... T_T...
Taking some photos and some shopping too...
Then again stopped by a roadside stall to get some wild honey...
Oh my... We were really rotting all the way down Cameron...



Then our next stop was Bidor... What else for stopping by Bidor other than the famous Duck Noodle... ^^...
Still it tasted as nice as last time...
It just reminded me the advise from TheForestGump teacher about how duck meat would help for the climbers during the climb and recovery after the climb as well...
But somehow I don't really felt much different after consumed the Duck Noodle...
Perhaps I was not at that level yet... T_T...
And the Sui Bao and Wu Kok was still as good business as my last visit...
All Sui Bao were out... But somehow I still managed to get some Wu Kok... Yum... ^^...



After the meal... We headed to Sungai Klah Hot Spring...
For a moment I just did not understand that why did we go for hot spring during such a hot weather... T_T...
Anyway... The hot spring did help soothing the ache on my legs...
But so sorry for those sharing the same pool with us...
4 pairs of legs full with cuts and wound were quite a scene you know...
My favorite among all was the stone foot massage path with hot water...
It's hot... It's pain... And it's fun... ^^...
Anyway again... The pain of my legs were killing me...
Especially when we need to walk from the hot pool park to the cool pool park... T_T...
Which gave me a mental note that never ever wear sandal for climbing again... T_T...
