Mount Kinabalu Challenge!!

On this coming Thursday, I will be flying off to Kota Kinabalu to participate in the 4th Special Olympics - Mount Kinabalu Challenge. My company is one of the corporate sponsors for this event and there are 19 people who have put in names in this but only 3 persons will be selected to represent the company, and I’m one of the lucky persons. Yay!

All ground arrangement (incl transfer, hotel & meals) will be sponsored and we just need to bear the return airfare, which is roughly RM 380 by AirAsia. I really think this is a great experience that money can't buy, as I'll be climbing the mountain with these special athletes.

The trip is taking place from April 17 - April 20, 2008. I have not been away from Dillon & Kaith for so many days before and I’m sure I will be missing them like crazy.....:(

Actually I have been to Mt. Kinabalu when I was 16!!(I’m still very young now in case you start wondering… hehehe :P) Anyway, it was a shame on me that I only managed to reach Laban Rata as I was too tired and couldn’t wake up the next morning (1.00am) to ascend to the summit. (paiseh….). So this is a great chance for me to complete my unfinished journey (fingers crossed!) and I’m sure it will be a great memory for myself.

It's definitely a great physical and mental challenge for one to make it up to the summit but I'll try my very best. Wish me luck and stay tuned for my story and the nice photos. :)
