I was playing around with Alia's DSLR while waiting for the rain to stop few weeks back. It was a great experience on the camera which allows me to take some nice shots. I can say quite an Artistic shots.

During my parents visitation to KL about 2 weeks back. My dad was curious about rock climbing and he just want to know whether is it safe for me to do so...
I brought him along to Batu Caves - Nanyang Wall. When my friends came, Karen offered my dad to climb and she will belay him.
My dad said: It's ok, i'm just here to watch not to climb.
Karen said: Mr Wu, there is no such thing as watch, but you have to experience it...
My dad: Eerr...okla.
Malcolm: Whoa!!! Great...
Process of gearing up:- putting on the climbing shoe / harness / learn the figure of 8 knot / a bit on the command code...
So my dad climbed and i can be very sure that, this is his achievement and he really enjoy climbing. When he was on top, he waived at us and he enjoys the view from the top.

Green Trekkerz organised a 2-days "Charity Climb" on 10-11 Jan 2009. They are raising some funds of RM1500 for "Kirtarsh Handicapped and Disabled Children’s Home" where GTZ members will visit on 18 january 2009, the centre is located in Bukit Beruntung. This centre is a shelter for the young and old disabled folks. This is a non-profit, non-political and non-religious centre. Apart from relying on generous contributors, the upkeep of the centre is through sales of souvenirs designed and hand made by the children such as key-chain holders, road tax stickers, pens, posters, bookmarks and children educational materials.They are in need of a new home to cater for more children. They also need a van to ferry the children to and from school, clinic and outings. Their monthly expenses average at close to RM14,000 per month.
The Charity Climb 09' was successfully organised by The Green Trekkerz. Over 100 people attended the event and helped raised RM3,375 for Kirtarsh Handicapped and Disabled Children’s Home which surpassed their target of RM1,500! Wooo Hoo!!!! Congratulations!!!
It was my very 1st time to climb on natural rocks or walls... or i can say Rock Climbing... Supposingly to start climbing last year 2008, unfortunately i injured left elbow and i have to rest for the elbow to heal. Damn...!!! Rock Climbing has been added to my 2009 new activity list...
I will be joining some of the profesional climbers and instructors to climb at Batu Caves.
The experience was AWESOME!!!! this is something that i really wanted to do for so long.!!! it is not easy to climb and the most difficult part for me now is wearing the Roack Climbing SHOE...!!!! hehehee.... the shoes must be 1 size smaller than our normal shoe size...

Anyway, it's really FUN and challenging!!! NO PAIN NO GAIN!!! hahahhaah... well..pictures speaks louder than words... take a look of the photos... till then, anyone who are interested in this kind of activities.... you know where and who to look for... =)
