The Best Sensation…

It’s already 4 years since I been studying in this secondary school. But I haven’t got spank on my back for that long period.

I don’t know why, but I got through whatever I did wrongly without any punishment.

This year, teachers just like putting my name into the discipline reportĀ  forms…

And today, I received two canes from the discipline teacher.

When he called me out, I tought he would like to talk to me about some photo stuffs.. but no, he showed me the discipline form…

Since I am a prefect, I had to be caned 2 times rather than 1.

When I was canned the 1st time, I didn’t feel anything. But the second one came, and I felt a burning sensation on my rear…

The sensation was just so overwhelming. Something that cannot be explained unless you yourself feel it.

The panorama above was taken when I was on my way to Mount Gayong.

I was lucky as the mist did not cover the peak at that time.

This photo above was taken from Mount Korbu peak. It was in the morning on the 3rd day of my hike.

The sun had just risen. The sun light casted a shadow of Mount Korbu’s peak at the bottom of Ipoh, Perak.

Can you see the shadow? It is at the bottom right of the photo, before the bushes. You can see a sharp peak in the shadow.

The photo above was taken on the 1st evening at seroja camp. It was very misty at that time and my DSLR was very cold.

I took a few shots of the misty jungle but wasn’t satisfied with he result. I knew that if I would condense the lens, it would create and blur effect.

I used my warm breath to condense the lens I took this single shot.

There are many steep cliffs and a few rock face that we had to climb up. So troublesome..

The photos above were taken with a canon 400D and a 18-55mm lens.

I hoped to get a fast prime lens or a L-series wide angle zoom lens with image stabiliser in the future.

Or a weatherproof canon 1D mark 3…xP Just kidding…

Mount Korbu & Gayong – Map and Profile

Here are the map and the profile of the Trail to Mount Korbu (2,183 metres, 2nd highest mountain in West Malaysia) and Mount Gayong (2,173 metres, 4th highest mountain in west Malaysia) via Ulu Kinta, Perak.

Mount Gayong is only 2 hours walk from Mount Korbu. The scenery on the way to Mount Gayong from Mount Korbu is very nice.

The blue colour trail is the road through the Ulu Kinta Dam to the start of the trail of Mount Korbu and Mount Gayong. Where else, the white line is the trail to the two Mounts.

The first peak in the profile is the summit of Mount Korbu while the second peak is Mount Gayong summit.

The maps and profiles are recorded using a handheld Garmin GPS. Click on the images for a larger view.

I hope that the map and the profile would be useful to other hikers who plan to climb up this two mountains. But, I do not hold any responsibility to the accuracy of the map and the profile.

Photos and stories on future posts… Stay tune..

Mount Korbu & Gayong – Panorama View

Finally, I am back!!

The 3 nights and 4 days hike up to Mount Korbu and Mount Gayong was a little tough. The toughest climb I have ever had so far.

During the 3rd day , we hiked from Mount Korbu summit to Mount Gayong summit.

It was very scenic along the trail to Mount Gayong. As for me it is worth climbing up all the way to enjoy the view.

Here is one of the Panorama shot I took. I used a Canon 400D with a 18-55 lens.

I will be uploading more photos on future posts.

The highest and nearest peak in the photo that is covered by cloud is Mount Korbu.

Pls click for a larger view of the photo.. I have resized the photo to a smaller size already.

I will explain what took place during that 4 days, later…
