Driving License

Was having a chat with my Japanese colleague last week over his driving license because he's currently trying to apply for a Malaysian driving license so that he could drive in Malaysia.

Over our chat, he asked how much does it cost to get a driving license here in Malaysia, driving lessons included.

So, we just casually told him, it cost around RM 1k, also depending on the no. of lessons you sign up for.

Well, we always knew that the living cost in Japan is high. Things are also very much more expensive than here in Malaysia.

But we were totally shocked when he said that getting a driving license in Japan cost 10x more. Goodness, if needing to get a driving license in Malaysia would ever need RM10k, what would happen then is a little beyond my imagination.

But to look on the bright side, this means less people can afford to get driving license which in turn means there'd be less cars on the road :D

Gosh!!! This is so overdue.

Anyway, just some photos to show.

1)Chendor Beach, the place where we camped in our first night.

2) Panorama Hill, Sg. Lembing. Can't believed we actually climb that many steps up to reach the top to see the sunrise.

3) Sg. Pandan Waterfall, Kuantan. Water's a little murky. But it's still a very nice place to visit. When I went, it was kinda crowded, with a few campers spending the night there.

4) Rainbow Waterfall, Sg. Lembing. The main purpose of this trip. It's around 20-stories high. The waterfall is so high and strong that by the time the water actually reaches the bottom, it forms quite a heavy rain that falls both diagonally and horizontally. The area would always be wet, so whenever the sun shines over the fall, rainbows are sure to form, hence living up to it's name, Rainbow Waterfall.

Back from my camping-cum-trekking-cum-waterfall trip

Was away during the long weekend to Sungai Lembing, Cherating to revisit nature.

It was fun fun fun... and I got very tired tired tired once I reached home.

Anyway, we went on a bus loaded of people and trek Panorama Hill in Sungai Lembing for the sunset, played in the Pandan and Rainbow Waterfall (one in Kuantan, the other in Cherating, if I'm not mistaken).... camped by the beach next to the turtle santuary on our first night, and had a home stay on our second.

Still waiting for some photos... will load them soon.

My most feared nightmare

Damn it... my worst nightmare has arrived.

Yesterday, my MIS guy has begun testing blocking all the sites and ports to the Internet. So now, that means, no more facebooking, mail reading, news reading or even blogging at work. And I can't even use MSN anymore.

Today, he opened the connection to the internet, but this won't be long. It's just a matter of time before such blockage becomes permanent.

I still wonder how I can do my online research once the Internet is gone? I heard they'll have common PCs for the Internet in front of the MD, but I still don't see anything being setup.
