Have you ever wonder how will it be like to lug your camera gears into the jungle for a 2 hours hike in the river? I just got back from one.. Headed to Templer’s Park with Vincent and Thiam Beng with an objective to find the end of the waterfall.. Which obviously we failed…

I was carrying a backpack with my camera, a tripod some spare batteries (in a ziplock bag), a macro adapter, flash gun, some spare clothes, a bottle of 1.5L water.. Hiked up Templer’s Park to find what is at the end of it.. We climbed waterfalls and went thru the leechy-bitchy-bamboos-fell-and-thorny-plants-all-over terrain.. My bag was heavy! No it is not thattt dangerous, at least I didn’t encounter any near death experience but whatever that is in my backpack almost was close to one.. What happen was I slipped on a rock, and I almost fell into the water.. The bag I am having, I doubt it can go all the way into the water without my camera gears getting wet..

Anyway.. Less talk.. Photos coming up..

I’ll start off with the waterfall photos..

By now I’m sure you are sick of waterfall photos already.. Anyway.. To continue with the sucky terrain we were taking.. I hate it when some plants/tree are clinging to the tripod hanging on my backpack.. I hate it when I am stuck.. What a bitch..


Now that’s a bitch leech bite.. (Not my feet.. Thankfully..)


Cleaning up the clot, several hours later..

Enough of being gross..


Now here’s some pretty for you..


Looks familiar? Looks delicious to me.. Somehow it reminds me of Onde-onde..


Toilet fly?


Semangat Muhibbah?


Ant at work..


Ants at work..


Watch your back!


Now smile for the camera.. The eyes somehow looked cute to me..


What do you think this is? A macro shot of an Orang Utan? Think again!


They are something like moss/mold kinda thing on the rocks.. Kinda gross huh?

Anyway.. That’s all for now.. Next up would be pictures from Pre Christmas party at Michelle’s poolside..

Stay tune..
