Going in a Spin @ Bukit Gasing

The game of gasing or spinning a top is a very traditional game popular in South-East Asia, and more so among the kampung folks of yesteryear. The game is mainly played by kids yet adults indulge in this favourite challenge to pit their skills against each other. The focus is to have one’s top spinning longest. In looking at the tops spinning at incredible speed, some have claimed to feel the dizzy spells associated with staring at it.

Almost to the Top, But… (Taman Botani Negara, Shah Alam)

A writer happily begins with a starting point and weaves his storyline from the very top. But hikes or treks begin at the base. It would have been best if our party of hikers started at the top. And we would have to do that by rappelling from a helicopter to gain entry into this dense forest.

This isn’t a hike. It’s punishment!

If anyone told you that Ayer Hitam Forest or more commonly known as Puchong Hill is an easy climb, think again. This interesting hill is nestled away from the not too distant LDP in the Taman Wawasan residential zone. Puchong Hill is in the township of Puchong, and easy to get to. The ample parking spaces (including some drivers that park illegally, yet not obstructing other road users) and nearby amenities will surface other surprises.
