FRIM hoi kung Trail Running

The group went for another hoi kung (start work) trail running at FRIM on Saturday, 28 January 2012. One of the attractions was to 'jin wan' (energize your luck) by going round the foothills of Salem High Country.

 Passing by Sungei Buloh nursery ... KC Leong, Koh, Kenny Kwan, Debbie, TanWL, ChongYF, Simon Goh ... Rupert Chen holding camera.

Led by Kenny Kwan, we started the run at Sungei Buloh Hospital, passing by the nursery of Sungei Buloh witnessing the flowers in full bloom to usher in the Year of the Dragon. We ran through the kampung area then entered into FRIM and arrived at the Steroid Hill.
.
Running up Steroid Hill was tough; it took a lot of determination to continue the uphill journey without stopping. We then ran round the foothills of Salem High Country. The second and equally tough uphill run was racing up to the peak of this hill.


We saw that the trails were labelled by the authority. Steroid Hill is called Tongkat Ali Trail while the trail to the peak of Salem High Country is called Pinus Trail that has almost similar sound for the English version (that is related to Tongkat Ali).

After energizing our luck, we than ran to Taman Botani Kepong (still inside FRIM) to have a few photo shoot of Huat-li-wood (as in Bollywood) in action. We then ran back to where we parked our cars.
.
Based on Simon Goh's new Garmin 610 Forerunner watch, it was computed that we have run a total of 15km.

 Pretty ladies, macho and handsome guys, and beautiful flowers ... Forget about running for a while ... :-)

 Eight runners for energizing our luck ... sure fattttttttt in the Year of the Dragon ... :-) The eighth person (ChongYF) is holding the camera.

 Okay... it is Salem High Country ... cool
