We hike, we fell, we slip, we step on the mud but we never stop

Cameron is my mission companion back in Miri Zone. We were both Zone Leaders and I really like him because he is probably the humblest guy I have ever met. I am grateful that he came to Hawaii to visit me! One of the first thing that we did is hike up the Crouching Lion! I do not recommend hiking all the way up because I almost lose one of my friend during the hike. Just take some cool shots and come back down because there aren't a lot of super nice view up there except for mud and fern every where that will cut you.

We spent 7 hours hiking. On the cliff, there were 2 routes, left and right. We decided to try out the route on the left which lead us to no where but off the cliff so we turned back. I swear if we would have continue taking the trail and not turn back, I would have fallen off from the cliff because I was leading the trail and I couldn't find any more trail and I got the point where I could see the bottom of the cliff. So we turned back and try the trail on the right instead. Always choose the right. I guess we learnt our lesson.

We were walking down from the cliff and one of our friend slip and fell off the cliff. Thank God there is a tree that supports him and prevent him from falling further. We pulled him up and we were so tired. We ran out of water. We literally have no more strength to go any further. But we still continue to walk down the cliff.

It was super dangerous and it will be the first and the last one. During the trail, ferns were everywhere cutting us and because of that I have a bunch of cuts on my hand and leg. I was learning lessons during the trials. Sometimes I wonder why do God let us make wrong decision. I was pondering really hard during the trail and I have learnt that maybe God want us to learn from the bad decision and not being stubborn and end up being regretful. So, I kinda accept how maybe this is how life works.

Beginning of the trail. 

If you can see a person standing on it. Thats me! 

Its mentally challenging to climb up the rock. 

My buddies! 

The crouching lion style of posing. 

Sarawak ngajat pose! One more step and you will fall away from the cliff.

I legit do not know why am I holding the flag and why do we have the flag.
Nevertheless, I am one proud Malaysian. 

Shout of victory! 

WE WERE SO FREAKING TIRED FROM THE TRAIL!!
And I can still smile.

Lunch, Diner and Supper at Seven Brothers! 
Last and not least, we had a prayer in Malay by Cameron before we begin hiking. And we gave thanks for arriving safely to the bottom. Never forget God.
