Outdoor Photos - Malaysia Mountains and Peaks

Ever heard of this saying “take nothing except photos and leave nothing except your foot prints”, I could not agree more with that, what more it should be cultured up to spine of every person. So that no one would naively feel their right to take out anything they found from our rainforest jungle. I’m not against practice of harvesting jungle produce and swine hunting but it should be done sensibly and reserve area really meant to be reserved. I have no trophy brought home from mountains but these photos that would remind me back of those memories..

Nepenthes or locally known as Periuk Kera crudely translate as Monkey pot :) . This one found on Mount Trusmadi have different look from their sibling in Peninsula in form of wider mouth and crooked body

Going into wilderness is no joke. What more if you won’t see the civilization for many days. It isn’t just fitness and endurance, it demands more than just that. Years in mountaineering activities help me to identify some frame of mind that share by mountaineers or general ethics what they should possessed.

#1 Micromanage – go into details
You cannot afford to leave your headlamp at home when you have to trek overtime hours into dark night through dense jungle to reach next campsite. Before every trip experienced mountaineers need to preplan what they going to face. Body conditioning is a must up to level match with what the trail demand. Maintaining checklist of individual equipments and personal needs is important. Meeting and discussion between members held to discuss regarding essential things - equipment, rations, route, schedule, task, cost, transport, etc

USE IT – at work
Handle all projects bestowed on you like a perfectionist. Show your capability to see small but important things that other worker used to forget. Take time to think out every little routine you have ahead.- Plot the meetings, errands, and deadlines you have ahead of you. You will be more efficient at work!

#2 knows your team.
Every person has unique strength and weaknesses. I know what to expect from them, and they know what to expect from me.

Place suitable people for right jobs. Know the character of your subordinates and co workers, just pick up the most vocal of them all then half of leading is settled.

#3 Be a team player
Be aware that you are not trekking alone. Otherwise you won’t dare to, and will not get the opportunity to see what others don’t . Except that you are exceptional or practitioner of singulars idea. Complement each other. If my team mate already set up the campsite, I would volunteer to get water supply. Outdoor enthusiast would always meet new people. Theirs capability to mix together at first meeting would always amaze me.

Your team is stronger with united head. A team player would blend easily with others and new situation. If you could blend easy and fast with new situation then that would be an edge advantage for you. Be flexible!

#4 Control your emotion
Nothing dangerous than a hiker who amuck on mountain. Mountaineering needs all physical and mental strength. Sometimes only mental strength that would make you going after days of trekking, when your body can’t take no more. Emotional wreck will not last long in outdoor activities. Either they have enough of the challenges or others just don’t want him to be part of them. Sensitive level goes north when physical body is challenge. But bear in mind that you are not the only one. Mountaineers know not only where to place their step but also their head.

Get your emotion in check whether in relationship, works, sport etc. You don’t want to be label as a psycho right.
