Broga Hill and Tok Wan Trail

Trekking and trail running at Broga Hill and Tok Wan Trail on a wet morning, Saturday 6 December 2014 ... It was raining the whole morning starting at 6:45 a.m.; so it was quite a challenge having to arrive at the peak and then return when overcoming the muddy and slippery ground.

This outing was graced by Mr Kellee Kam, CEO/Group Managing Director of RHB Banking Group, who trekked and ran with the team despite the adverse weather condition.

At mid-hill – the rain did not dampen the uplifting spirit. Look at the messy ground and imagine having to go up and down the muddy and slippery hill.

A few of us slipped and fell flat on the buttocks when descending the hill.

On the way down, I saw a young lady was strapped on a stretcher preparing to be carried down by the ambulance attendants; we were told that she slipped and fell.

At Broga Hill Peak before going to Tok Wan Trail. By now, most of us are wet: whether donning raincoat (the plastic material would cause sweating inside); 
breathable rain jacket (the water would seep through after prolonged exposing to rain); or without any rain gear.

We adjourned to the famous grill tilapia restaurant where the fish are wrapped in aluminium foil and grilled; the fish are raised in the adjacent pond.
With the simple cooking method, the freshness, natural sweetness and the aroma of the succulent fish are maintained: verdict – superb!

hmmm… after a good workout in the hill, it makes us really hungry looking at the mouth-watering fish.
