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”

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.

It was a challenging hike with some serious inclines – especially from theContinue reading “Jungle Babes in the Bukit Saga – Apek Hill Adventure”

Merdeka Hike through Shah Alam Community Forest

Merdeka Day holiday meant that the Babes would not be free to hike so I dragged the boys on a family hike to Shah Alam Community Forest. For a group of kids who don’t much like hiking, I have to say that they did pretty well. These were the stats I recorded on my Garmin:Continue reading “Merdeka Hike through Shah Alam Community Forest”

We’ve traded the Apple Watch for the Garmin Fenix 3 HR which has someContinue reading “Activity Tracking with the Garmin Fenix 3 HR”
