121209 Eco-Challence, Twelve kilos of S&M


The original design, nerve wreaking - 2 weeks

It's the time of year again where we enjoy getting grilled & tortured. Remember last year's
X-plorace 131208, Seven kilos of hell?. This time it wasn't hell, it was pure sadomasochism for those who seek pleasure & pain. Sadism is pleasure in the infliction of pain or humiliation upon another person, while masochism refers to gratification from receiving the same.

What thrills a man/woman to the point that they can be considered part of a mental disorder? I'm not amused. It resembles psychosis fulled by over-reactive endorphins. Want to know more about endorphins? Read here.


Kelang mali, talak sombong...vely cun one





Right after sunrise, howls of laughter filled the air as we boogied to the disco beat. Smiling eh? Get ready to get heated up & prepare for your brains to be boiled. You wouldn't know what lies ahead. It's not gonna be a bed of roses.




Sorry bro, that's not the way to plant paddy.




Stuck for 10 mins & lost a pair...

As the horns blared, all ran helter-skelter, like a lost sheep, unsure of which direction to proceed. Kinda chaotic! Like the blind leading the blind, most of them ran aimlessly, eyes rolling & confused. Some ran straight in to the mud-hole for the first clue & punched their passport for the 1st CP. The excrement like matter left some reeling. Gunk most foul, awful & topped with leeches. Yikes!












For the biking leg, 3 fellas would run behind a biker for 6 kilos! To make it worse , the road trip was a dragon back. By the 3rd kilo, some were already gasping for air, like a goldfish out of water. Hey...it's a jungle out there, good quality oxygen - still not enough ah? Ha Ha Ha! To make things worse, some fella stole a bike from another team!


Yay we won! Bull...another 9km to dread.


A friend in need is a friend indeed.






"I'm sorry, I can't even lift my arms" this chick said.
He replied "Who the hell are you starin' at, I didn't ask for your help!"





I just love to see the yuppies suffer. A simple kampong chore became a tough challenge for them. Mat weaving made their fingers bleed & instead of grating the coconut, it lacerated their hands & mangled their egos.



With unforgivable terrain, paths that looks like a snake being beaten (Seperti ulau kena palu/balun/pukul) & by CP6 most had already succumbed to the unbearable pain - muscle strain - scorching heat - I'm a dead meat kind of thing. Some decided to abandon ship & took the next bus back to civilization unwilling to battle the heat & exhaustion. What a sad sight. I could only watch as arms outstretched for help - for the precious commodity - H20. "Don't follow me" someone said, coz "I'm lost too..." One fellow got his arm riddled with thorns. The paramedics took a zillion years to pluck them Out - with a bundle of Ouch!



No banana could quench his hunger pangs. He just laid there motionless as I sat down beside him to get the best camera angle. He was speechless, dumb as a mute. You ain't no brute, why go thru this dude? You'll be jello for good.




They look delicious, not sure if they're edible.









Next on the schedule was a cooking class. More of a survival cooking actually. Simple. Just start a fire, a packet of flour & a few bananas, go bake some "Chokodok/Chucur Kodok". As filthy as it gets, you cook it - you eat it.


Suffer well




The ride is free, so hitch on it!




It's more of battling your wits but then again, if you know you're not fit - why suffer?

Crack that whip, give the past the slip
Step on a crack, break your momma's back

When a problem comes along, you must whip it
Before the cream sits out too long, you must whip it
When something's going wrong, you must whip it

Now whip it, into shape
Shape it up, get straight
Go forward, move ahead
Try to detect it, it's not too late
To whip it, whip it good !

When a good time turns around, you must whip it
You will never live it down, unless you whip it
No one gets their way, until they whip it

I say whip it, WHIP IT GOOD !!!
