After every assigment (stressful ones), we love to go out and find something interesting to do to release our stress. After a movie on Thursday (G.I. Joe is not bad, but not going to write a review about it. But its a must watch), we decided to climb a hill introduced by Chii which is called Broga Hill at Semenyih.
So we decided to meet at college at 4 A.M. (semangat kan?) to start off our journey. But due to some old habits, me, Sherman, Jess and Gordon had to wait for CW, Wai Sie and Li Qun who were late. After waiting for an hour, the frustrated 4 decided to drive off first without the three and said we meet them there. It not fun looking for a place which you don't know where because we started driving at 5 but because of one miss turn (thanks to the sucky directions from the mamak stall) we arrived at Broga Hill at 630 A.M. but, we were still earlier than the other 3.
The one reason, I guess its the only reason we went so early was because we wanted to catch the sun-rise. Even though we started late, we managed to hike up the hill just in time to catch the breath-taking morning view. The path up is not easy, especially if you are carrying a bag and a camera. Well, everything takes sacrifices right?
But the view was just breath-taking. Can't imagine you can find these kind of view here. The air was chilly but not so chilly after the long hard hike up. The nicee cool breeze in your face, fresh air with the smell for fresh greeneries. Gosh, it was beautiful.
The cutest thing was that someone brought their dog on a hike. It was even equiped with its own backpack. This French Bulldog really got the attentions of all the photographers on the hill.
Jess was the first one who dared to touch and play with it.

The people who went on the hike...
We climbed to one of the highest peak with a path to reach and boy were we tired by the time we reached there but we were sure having lots of fun.
Well, Sherman and CW showing how "tough" it is for them to climb up the mountain. Oh, wait... they were doing the slow motion running thing.
On the third peak, we had a picnic. A mini one that is. Of bread and tuna spread.
The serenity in the hill was so nice. I was sitting on another rock when I noticed that you can read and sleep at the same time. Well, not me, but Gordon. HAHA.
The serenity also made us do some daredevil stunts. Like sitting on the edge and do some sketching.
Sitting on the edge of the earth...
I don't know why, but this is such a classic scene which I seen it somewhere before...
Beautiful wild flowers on Broga Hill
Can you believe we stayed on top of the highest peak of the hill till 11 A.M.? There were not many people left by that time which gave us even more opportunity to take pictures before the hard climb down Broga..
The steep slopes which were hard for us to climb up is even harder to climb down.
But we made it down safely and it took us half the time of climbing up. In the end, my pants was covered with dirt and as I reached the bottom, my legs were shaking. But I had fun!
For lunch, we headed for Kajang for their famous sate, but honestly, I don't see what is so good about it. And I didn't get to eat the deer sate or rabbit sate because they don't have it anymore...Grrrrrrrr........
Now I need to let my arms and legs heal from the bashing I gave while climbing down the hill. Arghhh.... I have 2 assignments to finish and I haven't started.... Ok... Back to work.....
