Hiking Trails: Sri Bintang

It’s been a while since the Jungle Babes have tried a new trail. Partly because we needed a trail around Desa Park City, partly because everyone was getting a bit bored of Bukit Gasing, and maybe because I was feeling brave enough to lead the Babes blindly into a new trail, we decided to tryContinue reading “Hiking Trails: Sri Bintang”

Viper Challenge Classic at Sepang

One year after the Viper Challenge in Cyberjaya, Team GISKL were back at it at the Viper Challenge Classic Category in Sepang. The distance was 20 km and the obstacle count was at 25. The Terrain Well, it’s Sepang – the place where they race cars. How bad can the incline possibly be? Besides, afterContinue reading “Viper Challenge Classic at Sepang”

Spartan Kuching Pre-Race Assessment

It’s two more sleeps until race day. After a disastrous Beast race, I confess that I am not feeling very confident about this one. I know it is the Sprint, the shortest and easiest of all Spartan races, but I am still nervous. Kuching is a wildcard – a new race venue that no oneContinue reading “Spartan Kuching Pre-Race Assessment”

Spartan Beast 2019 – Tambun

Spartan Beast for 2019 – check. I am now two thirds of the way towards my first trifecta and I’m relieved that the last leg will be the shortest race – the Sprint. Race Report I confess that I totally underestimated how tough it would be. I thought I was prepared, but I was not.Continue reading “Spartan Beast 2019 – Tambun”

Hiking Trails: Kota Damansara

It’s the school holidays and the Jungle Babes (with cubs in tow) decided to try a new hiking trail. We found the Kota Damasara Community Forest which is a lovely, family friendly, hiking trail that was largely undulating and very well marked. Most intersections had maps posted and there were signs and clear markings allContinue reading “Hiking Trails: Kota Damansara”

Jungle Babes Adventures in Gua Tempurung

What’s better than having a group of Mum friends? Having a group of adventurous Mum friends – especially when your immediate family doesn’t share your love for adventure. Well, these kinds of experiences anyway. Now that the Jungle Babes have conquered the treetops, the hills, and the rocks, we decided it was time for aContinue reading “Jungle Babes Adventures in Gua Tempurung”

Viper Bridge (Food) Challenge – Penang 2019

It was Team GISKL’s second OCR: the Viper Bridge Challenge in Penang. Dubbed the world’s first bridge obstacle event, we felt we had to be a part of the action. Well okay, that and the food trail we were planning to carve all the way from KL to Penang. After last year’s Viper Challenge inContinue reading “Viper Bridge (Food) Challenge – Penang 2019”

Once Upon a Time, I was a Rock Climber

Recently, I had dinner with an old friend whom I hadn’t seen in many years. I first knew her back when my sole obsession in life was rock climbing. She shared some of my stories with our common friends – friends who have never known the climber I once was. They stirred the memories thatContinue reading “Once Upon a Time, I was a Rock Climber”

Viper Challenge Cyberjaya 2018

During the Spartan Sprint earlier this year, I vowed that it would be my first and last obstacle course race (OCR). Then, a couple of months back, I did the Northface Outdoor Challenge. Last weekend, I completed the Viper Challenge in Cyberjaya. Okay, I admit it, I’ve been infected with the bug. Next year, I’llContinue reading “Viper Challenge Cyberjaya 2018”
