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
