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.
I have alway been able to do things that I enjoy doing and have a good life. Although I was brought up in the city of Kuala Lumpur but at heart I have always been a hill billy country boy.In my school days I was a member of the 10 KL (Air Scout) Troop.From air scouting I learned to like aircraft and ended up serving in the Royal Malaysian Air Force as a pilot. Later when I completed my service I became a commercial helicopter pilot and is still enjoying the job
Enjoying the Great Outdoors and living a life in harmony with nature has always been my style of living. I always tell my friends that it does not require a lot of money to have a good life but you must KNOW HOW to have a good life.
