KC Foong's visit

 I came to know KC Foong through the MBS Loop a couple of years back. He is about 10 years my senior and we were from the same scout troop...10th KL (Air Scouts). He stays in Auckland and earns his living by ticking the volcanoes( geothermal engineering). Over the weekend on his way back from Redang Island he poped in to pay me a visit. Knowing his love for the great outdoors I had planned some activities for him. First I took him out to the river.

Well I am impressed. He can handle my single seater kayak like a pro! Too bad it started to rain after a while.
 We took shelter in a fish farm and from here I bought a 1 kilo Sea Bass (Siakap) to be steamed for dinner.
 Next day I took him to the Cemerong Waterfalls and we hiked up the 350 m waterfall.
 KC is no tenderfoot at hiking for I know he does quite a bit of hiking back in NZ
 This is the claimed highest waterfall in the country (maybe not true..I had seen bigger ones in Sarawak)
 Lord Baden Powell would be proud to have KC as his follower. I could see that he lives by the scout laws and is still very much a scout at heart.
