The GREATEST makan-makan trip I ever had in my life. It was happened from 2 months back in Penang Island where we hunted as many foods available as we can. Nothing can beat when comes to food delightful.

(aka Makan-Makan trip @ Penang Island)
Penang Island is famous with so many great foods. No doubt that we had prepared much earlier with Penang best food guide before hand, namely Penang Food Trail.
We drove up to the North from KL in two cars with seven of us. A 3 days 2 night trip can’t get any better than this – food craving all the day in the island. Of course without our great food Penangites navigator our plan won’t be as so successful.
Penang Bridge International Marathon was my latest marathon event that I joined last year. For the last two years, I was only within the KL area, barely go out for BIG places.

Being for myself, it was a breakthrough when I hit my own record at 1 hour 12 minutes. Although nothing to proud as it’s not under one hour, but I’m grateful.
Running this event was always my wish and finally I did it after planning since 3 years ago. It was hard to plan when I considered about the cost coming all over from KL for just few hours event.
Therefore, I’d planned accordingly and mixed with my Penang Food Quest trip. This trip was 3 days 2 night and unbeatable compare to my all previous food trips. Remember to stay tune for the next post.
For most of the casual hikers, this hill is seems to be less known to them. An exception for those who like to recce to any kind of jungle. The actual trail leads to the summit was kinda short but not as easy as expected.
28 Nov 2010 | Hill-Hiking @ Bukit Rasa
The terrain are consists of loose soils, a bit of rock climb and jungle trekking. The starting point is all about rock ascends. A beirut is marked as the summit of the hill.Â Supposedly, the hill offers a 270 degrees panoramic view, but those overgrown trees have blocked the surrounding from being seen.
If the skies are clear, we will able see Genting Highlands from the beirut. To make it interesting, few of us actually climbed up to the beirut for better view.
I found that Maybank has been hit with fake/scam/phish email much more frequent than their counterparts. Maybank, in no doubt topping my list with fourth series with this post.
Sample phishing email
You may easily fall into trap to believe this was a genuine and absolutely NO WRONG with this email by Maybank directly, am I right? The ONE Malaysia logo has further convinced the customer to trust this email.
IN FACT, big LIAR is just behind this email. Remember to be aware of such NO SUCH REQUEST or ANY EMAIL UPDATE to customer via online ever been sent by bank on profile update, investigation, immediate response or etc.
As you should aware that, WHAT THE HELL with AOL.com in the Mail-By column?
It’s freaking easy to say that it wasn’t send by Maybank.com, right? Thanks to Gmail service who able to identify where real sender network from.
Gunung Tok Wan is not that a GLAMOR name for irregular hikers despite to its name. But it’s almost associated with Broga Hill when people asked where it is. Located at just behind Broga Hill peak, you can say an extension to Broga peak, there was a mountain.
14 Nov 2010 | Gunung Tok Wan [via Broga Hill]
The most crowded hill always the most favorite hill in Malaysia, Broga Hill in these recent years. The traffic towards the hill is almost JAM every weekend! If not, you have to queue up like a long mad queue for the sake of enjoying the nature. People from different groups namely from casual hikers, photographer, couple, family, teenager and even school kids.
Only few of groups included us dare to challenge Gunung Tok Wan after the Broga’s peak. Gunung Tok Wan starting point is located at 4th peak, also the highest peak of Broga.
Broga has height of 400m while Gunung Tok Wan has just 675m height. However, the trail stretches for almost 3.1km before touching the peak. From first peak to 4th peak of Broga might take you only 30 minutes, but from 4th peak to peak of Tok Wan will takes you 2 hours.
