Sorry folks for the long drought. Really busy the past week preparing for my pilgrimage to Mount Kinabalu.

Yes, I made it to the Rooftop Of South East Asia, the summit, Low’s Peak 13345 feet above sea, at exactly 5.12 am on the 28th of October 2009. What an INCREDIBLE experience…I never felt so much emotion in my life…

Mount Kinabalu –ah! anything more beautiful, taking it altogether, I have never seen. Even the geology in me was put into good use, Mt Kinabalu in geological terms is a young mountain, a massive granodiorite with much sedimentary and ultrabasic and basic igneous rocks seen everywhere.The peak of the most varied form rose high into the air, partly covered with driving clouds. It was sharp and it glittered — a glorious spectacle. There could only be one such mountain in the world, and as a landmark it was priceless. I knew that I could not mistake that.

In conclusion… INCREDIBLE, FANTASTIC, MAGIC… and hard but manageable… but you need to be prepared when you are over 50.

Strange, even after 3 days my heart is still calling for the mountain! It’s an energy of many dimensions.

Anyway, I will like to take this opportunity to thank the one person who made this pilgrimage possible – Rosdiana Wasimin of Tanjung Aru Tours And Travel, Sabah, thank you Rose!

I shall blog about my journey another time but for now I want you to listen to this song “Speed of Sound” by Coldplay

    Nice to hear you reached the summit. Great work!


  5. Thank you Pauline. I was hoping to see GOD up at 13345 feet, but, sad to say, did not get to see him there although I waited close to 1 hour up there freezing. Maybe need to go even higher to see him. That is why I am planning EVEREST next. Anyone care?

    Did you see anything strange up in the summit? You said ” Strange, even after 3 days my heart is still calling for the mountain! It’s an energy of many dimensions.”

    “All you can do in life is try.” I tried my best. If you don’t succeed, you can say to yourself, ‘I tried.’ That’s the most important thing in life. I tried. Well done Selva for reaching for your goals! You kept your word like a true gentleman.


  8. Caroline says:

    Wow! You are fantastic, now I know why you have been walking to Yayasan Sabah all the way from KK. You are an inspiration to many. Keep it up!

    Congrats on making it to the Magic Mountain.

    I don’t dare it yet, as I also have limited time and I’m not in best shape. I think it’s better to explore Sabah and Sarawak slowly when being there for the first time :)


Hey, hey! What have you got to say?
