Daily travel to Pelita Academy

18 February 2010

Salam to all. Guess what, the Chinese New Year (Year of the Tiger) celebration has just passed us by. To my Chinese friends all over the world, may I wish you a belated Happy Chinese New Year. More good health and prosperity. As the electronic takes the place of snail mail, it was quite a job to get New Year cards to send!Alas! the snail mail still, in my mind rules the everlasting mode of remembering someone. So, keep the snail mail going yeah?

Back to travelling. Daily every morning I travel some 100km away from the busy capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, to a small hill side town called Kuala Kubu Bahru (KKB), at the foot of the Fraser hill resort, to attend the STCW class at the Pelita Academy. KKB,as glamorously called is an old British Army town during the Colonial days. The rows of shops remained the same; built in the 1940 plus. Passing through some thick undeveloped secondary forest and government toll lands, the early morning is always cool, fresh air and foggy. The winding roads to KKB make it more exciting to ride your bike. But, some stretch is quite undulating and marked with potholes. Worse, very often I find water buffaloes and herd of cattles lying on the road! You know why, the road provides warm temperature over the nite. I am going to miss this environment once my course is over. Safe ride.

Camel n Red Spot

3 February 2010

After a year alone, Camel has found a new company the Red Spot (Honda CBR 929). Alas! Camel is for real long distance runner while Red Spot routine ride if you like. Meanwhile, my maritime studies with Pelita Akademi continues. Pics above, Camel in his stable at home, me and Red Sport somewhere in a quite village and my fellows study mates. Study and sport riding blend well for me. Cherio!
