Final training at Batu Caves

The steps training at Batu caves on Saturday, 15 October 2011 mark the final training before we take on the Mount Kinabalu Climbathon challenge on 22 October 2011.

It was a last minute change of venue from Gunung Nuang as this is supposed to be a safe and easy training (since we have come thus far in training).

A few of the other participants are doing their trainings at Apek Hill and Gunung Nuang also.

The challenging 252 steps of Batu Caves. Try going up in quick succession, you will experience how tough it is ... :-)

L-R: Mak CK, Tee EK, ChongYF, KC Leong, Patricia Yap and Eileen Gan.

Amazing power – 500c.c. x 24 bottles x 3 boxes = 12kg x 3 = 36 kg !!
I helped to carry another box and I have to take a breather at mid-point.

A group of Chinese nationals from Shanghai are visiting Batu Caves. This guy is not very fit. Not used to the steep gradient, he almost fainted that gives us the scare.
We tried to offer our help much to the appreciation of his lady group members who said that we are very helpful and kind.
MakCK is trying to keep him awake by engaging in conversation with him.
We later accompany him to go down the steps for fearing that he would trip and fall.

 L-R: Mak CK, Micki and friend and KC Leong
