Brief: Dear potential participants,

Ever fancied a life of adventure, discovery and excitement? Join a hundred strangers. Walk a hundred miles. With no change of socks. To sleep with bugs and bathe in streams. Would you give up the comforts of home in pursuit of a crazy dream?

Previous Raleigh International projects include building gravity feeds to supply fresh water to villages, building houses, schools, bridges and libraries; geological surveys, marine conservation work, working with rhinos & orang utans; as well as trekking across the Crocker Range, sea kayaking in Chile and trekking across some of the most arid parts of Namibia.

This year Raleigh International gives young Malaysians the opportunity to embark on life-changing expeditions to Malaysia, Costa Rica-Nicaragua, Namibia & India. These expeditions challenge young people, between the ages of 17 and 25 through community and conservation work in some of the world’s most remote destinations. Volunteers help build homes, community clinics and work with wildlife experts on some of the world’s most endangered species.

To qualify for an expedition as a Venturer, you have to be between 17-25 years of age, speak basic English and able to swim 200m unaided and qualify yourself at an Introduction Weekend. This Introduction Weekend is designed to simulate the rigors and challenges you will face on expedition. The details for the upcoming Introduction Weekend are as above.

The above application form document is your application on Raleigh International Kuala Lumpur’s Introduction Weekend and is your first step to a chance of a lifetime.

Please fill in this form and submit to the person and the address printed at the bottom by 28th of September 2008. This document once completely filled and submitted will be your request to be accepted on a Raleigh International expedition. Please note that incomplete applications (incomplete fields, lacking a referral or photo) will not be considered.


**(Due date for last submission: 4th of October)**

Personal Note: Basically, this is a 3 days Introduction Weekend programme that lets you briefly experience more about the 10 Weeks Expedition that Raleigh Uk organise. This expedition divides the 10 weeks into 3 phases which are Community, Environment and Adventure. So, what are you going to do in these 3 phases? Well, in Community, you will build a new building for the purpose as a library, community hall, clinic and so on. Never in your life have yout thought that you will be able to help the community to build something as big as this, right? Well, this is your chance! Now you can do so and make yourself proud for achieving such a thing! In Environment, we help scientist do research, do some conservation project or try to improve the conservation facilities in the virgin jungle of Borneo! These are not just any other jungle like taman negara Selangor. This is something you will be amazed of! The never-been-seen amazingly huge canopy tree, wildlifes, amazing view in the morning with the fogs all around! What's more, you get to live and experience living there! You just have to experience it for yourself! In Adventure, you will get to experience trekking in the Crocker Range or it might have been changed to another place, for about a week or so! Who would go with you to endure such tough trekking and camping in the jungle? It is not really something the university or school might organise, right? So, this is your chance to experience what you have been longing for! Besides that, the Adventure phase also includes conquering Mt.K! That's like a double bonus! Wait wait! You will also get a free Open Water Diving lesson and a license too when you pass the test! A triple bonus? *woot* But before all this, you will have to go throught the Introduction Weekend and raise an amount for your OWN EXPEDITION! But do not be afraid because our fundraiser officer will guide you through the fundraising process.

What are you still waiting for! Grab the Intro Week Application Form and Sign-up now!

Hohoho! So fun!

I arrived in Kk (Kota Kinabalu) on Saturday evening, about 4pm. Initially my Airasia flight was at about 2/3, they cancelled the flight and put me on a later flight @ about 5 p.m. Luckily, I'm able to chg it to the 1250 flight and supposingly, the flight is scheduled to land @ 1520 but I only got down from the flight about 1600 -___- Could have been the rain =/ It was raining when I board and unboard the flight.

I was pretty exhausted from work during holidays that I just spend the rest of the evening on the bed, dinner outside and then back to the bed again -_________- Did abit of touring around but the roads pretty much looks the same -_________- I's get lost if you just left me somewhere x.x

We had fried beehon and Sabah Beufort Noodle. My tummy wasn't feeling right because my eating schedule have been a mess a few days ago and I didn't have any food in my tummy from morning till the time i land my foot in Kk.

On the 2nd day, we went to eat Dim Sum @ Foo Phing which is at Lintas. for reservation please call 088-259692!!! Hahaha.. Wtf.. this is an advertorial -____- But really, the Dim Sum there are not bad ^^ I like the "Ho Yip Fan" XD We only had 3 baskets of dim sum and one plate of fried dim sum and we're full!! All set to venture to 1 Borneo!

It was drizzling all day when we reach there. We bought tickets for Wall.e!!! omg. Seriously damn cute.. so much love in the air! awww.. *wipe away tears* wtf.. but I enjoyed the movie though XD It was so empty inside the cinema! Barely even 10% of the seats are occupied! Cold. *shivers*

We had a few hours free before the movie starts. So we went to explore the mall. There was this shop that sells pretty usual photos framed up in different sizes. I don't really see a picture that attracts me ;/ I wonder if there are people who actually bought pictures there O.O More over, their frames are not those which are of solid wood painted black, the classic type. x.x The last thing would be the frame glass that they use.. it wasn't the clear type but those which are a little blurry. Therefore, it actually defeats the purpose of some picture as it blurs away the details x.x I even found some picture which are pixelated. I'm so O.M.G-ed by this shop. Really.

They also have a new arcade centre there where they have this system of using a card that contains credit rather than token coins. Minimum purchase is 10 credits and there is no refund for credits. -_______-;; There is also this Japanese Daisa shop that sells everything for RM 5.00 Some are worth it but some are really not lor. There are things which are obviously unattractive and not worth RM 5.00 there and I wonder if they could really sell -.-;;

There are some shops which are not available in East Malaysia such as Von Dutch but I don't particularly see anything nice. Their clothes are simple and nice + a little bit of fanciness there or there x.x which turned me off. -.-;; I saw this pair of jeans which looks good on the front but when I turned it around.. it's a no-no -.-;; The FCUK over there sells the range of clothes for more matured adults =/ I was hoping to find something for young adults -.-;; The Esprit there has quite a loadsome of stocks. I bought a pair of jeans skirt in KL like.. 2 months ago, and the same thing is still hanging in the Kk branch. The Mango there was pretty small for a Mango but the clothes are great XD They don't have much stocks though x.x I wanted a blouse which is purple in colour but they ran out of stock for my size. so I got a brown one instead which still looks good ^^

and.. apparently, Zara pulled out from having a retail @ 1 Borneo -.- Something must have went wrong. Some colours used for the buildings looks pretty shit though. They had this yellow which looks like yellow paints which are faded with patches of whitish yellows x.x The whole project are not even completed and they forcefully open the place to the public. Very bad first impression -.-;; At night, they have all these colourful neon lights and decorative light all over the buildings. It looks like as if they are trying to potray the ambience of the buildings in Vegas but it looks as if they do it just to Syiok Sendiri because obviously, it does not blend with the surrounding and second of all, it is u-g-l-y. x.x Seriously, they made customers really dissapointed by projecting such a nice illustration of that place in the newspapers.

At night, we had dinner @ Grace Point which has a really nice ambience. It is a place near Sutera Harbour. Some place nearby where tourist can easily get a variety of food. Basically, it is like a food court with a pretty face XD. It rained all night and I was wondering it tomorrow is fit for my refresher dive =/

We went to get some chocolates later on as I was gonna visit quite a few Sabahan I knew and it is always impolite to show up without anything, yea? We went to Kk Chocolate and Cocoa Hse. Apparently, the prices of chocolates sold there are amazingly expensive, just right to slaughter off all tourist. Hahaha..

I had no choice but to get some there because of I do not have enough time before my flight x.x I bought quite a number of packets and they said they will give me discounts. However, even after discounts, they are so much more expensive compare to the normal prices of chocolates sold @ Cocoland in Kl. Therefore, I would advise you to get chocolates from Kl's Cocoland instead XD There you go.. advertorial again. Hahaha.

There's no harm sharing good suff with other people, right?

This ends my 2nd day in Kk.

I'll try to blog abt my 3rd day tomorrow @.@

Night people! *yawnS*

I have a special morning call @ 6 every morning in Kk from AirAsia planes because I'm now staying in my friend's house which is like less than 5 minutes from the Airport. Wtf. Damn loud and clear x.x

So, nite nite..

Thursday, 4 September 2008

I was really hungry when I got off work today as I just had a beehon for brunch. So, when I was home, I made myself a cup of hot chocolates and grab a few packets of biscuits to fill my stomach while waiting for dinner time.
I took them all up to my room so that I could get online while answering to the hunger of my stomach.

While I was on the way up, I was greeted by something left on the floor of the stairs.

It was shit alright..

Dog shit.

or

you rather call it, dog poo.

x.x

Mind you, it wasn't just some normal dog poo. The poo poo was rather soggy.

-_________________________________-

There goes my appetite.

Must be one of the white btches because only the white bitches gets to come in.

What a privilege. To poo IN the house.

Damn btch.

But I still love them! Aww.. *wtf*
