2008 Christmas Gift Exchange

Finally, the waiting is over. The anxiety to know what you’ll be getting, what the others will be getting, seeing those happy and surprised (or that “What is that? Never mind, just keep smiling.”) faces is here. Unfortunately my anxiety was dampen by a Notice of Meeting from Forestry Department. They wanted to know which part of their land that was in the proposed new road project.

 

Woke up at about 5 in the morning because I need to pick up the Environmental Engineer at about 6 a.m. before driving up to Ranau. I would have probably stopped by somewhere near Tamparuli but I would have to settle with taking picture while driving.

The morning view while driving up to Ranau was also great. It’s a shame that I have to reach Ranau by 8 am, or else I would have stopped to take some photos. Maybe I’ll just go there by myself early in the morning and take some photos. Mau ikut ka Kaesen?

 

Reached Ranau at about 8:10 am and stopped at one of the restaurant to have breakfast, the meeting with Sabah Forestry was at 8:30 am. At about 9 we drove up to Togop, then going off road towards Marak Parak, driving as far as the road permit. If only the road was not cut off, we could just drive in, instead we have to walk a total of 6km up and down. I used my Nokia E71 to get the trip distance.

I don’t really mind the hiking actually, I love hiking. For that hike, we were rewarded with a deer!

I couldn’t get a clearer picture. I forgot to switch my camera back to 10MP. I usually use 3MP for work purpose. We finished at about 12pm, have lunch at the same place we have our breakfast then went home.

 

OK, now with the presents! I stopped by at my office to get my presents.

The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.
