Just Another Trip to Sungai Lembing - Day 1~~~

Actually the Day 1 was supposed to be Day 2...
But I skipped the actual Day 1 which was last Friday as we spent most of the time traveling from PJ to Sungai Lembing...
It was almost midnight when we reach there and we were like went straight to sleep almost right away once we reach our small little wooden hut...
So there was really nothing much to report...
We wake up very very early on Saturday morning... Around 4:30am I think... T_T...
And due to some technical problem... We were not managed to have breakfast...
So I got myself ready for the climb with no breakfast...
Then reach the foot hill with no breakfast...
Took the 45 minutes climb up the hill with no breakfast...
Waited for about an hour for the sunrise with no breakfast...
Then came back down to the town with no breakfast...
Perhaps hunger was the only thing I can remember for this climb of Lembing Hill... T_T...



Anyway... The climb was rather easy and we were obviously reaching the peak way too early...
But it was nice too as I managed to see the night sky with stars...
Not a lot but it was good enough...
The view of the sunrise and the famous cloudy view was magnificent...
Definitely tons of memory card space had been killed at this moment...
And almost everyone in the climbing group came with a serious high tech photo shooting equipment...
While I was with my small little handphone camera only... T_T...
However as what BadmanTung said...
Sometime it would be better to go to a place without a DSLR...
You will gain more by experiencing with your own eye during the trip than with the photos after the trip...





Finally... I had my breakfast after we came down from the hill of heaven... ^^...
A simple wantan mee with milo and two half boiled eggs...
Food was very nice... Most likely that was due to I was very very hungry at that moment... ^^...
Most importantly... It was quite cheap... RM 5.50 for all of above... So worth it... ^^...
Sungai Lembing was a very very small and simple town indeed...
A typical one street only little town with friendly town folks...
They even can just left their keys on their motorcycle and walked away doing their own thing...
How peaceful was that... ^^...





After a short nap... We went to Kuantan town for lunch...
I was really happy to go to Kuantan...
Because the weather in Sungai Lembing was unbearably hot...
As if the sun in Sungai Lembing was double the size compare with other place else...
I just need to get away from there and find some place in Kuantan with air condition...
Perhaps I was really spoilt by the city life... T_T...
During our way back to Sungai Lembing we visited two of the hanging bridges in Sungai Lembing...
Not very fun I must said as I always have phobia with height...
Still I walked across both hanging bridges and can't help myself thinking of what should I do if the bridge just break on the half way of my crossing... T_T...



We ended our night with a BBQ dinner...
Which took us hours to finally get the fire ready...
Anyway... I didn't ate much that night I must said...
I just lost my appetite by looking at all those heaty food... T_T...
Still I did enjoy the process of BBQing something...
It was hot... I know... But it was fun when you see how the chicken wings turn from pinky white to golden brown...
Then ask someone to try it out see if it was already well done... ^^...

And I wake up in the middle of the night and found myself very hungry... Shit... T_T...

if no breakfast I can't do anything... you so keng still can climb the hill!!

the photos you took all are nice, even though with your little cell phone...

有时当我们旅行时一直忙着拍照,而忘了用我们的双眼和心去体会,当我们回想时,所有的画面就只有那四四方方而已,会很遗憾。。。

p/s: when i go back Malaysia can i join you to hiking? cos your hiking place all like heaven!! NICE!!!

Laksa,
That's why I prefer to just bring a phone camera with me for traveling...
Why must we experience something from the photos while you can experience it youself...

No problem to bring you along...
Let me know when you come back...
I see got any trip was organized or not... ^^...

Taugeh,
Actually I wish to have a big big camera also...
Just no money to buy only...
And also scare after I buy I will go travel for photo shooting but not for travelling...

Sampat,
That's also must depend on the skill of the people who is taking one lar... Wuahaha... ^^...
