Hiking attire in tropical rainforest and mountain

We mostly know how to pick hiking attire but how about sleeping attire or set of dry clothes??
IMHO these two should be interchangeable and built with the same principle to that of day hike attire to also serve as backup. With additional of warmer and perhaps more fluffy accessories.
Always remember the first layer of protection is the clothing itself. Shelter, survival kit, first aid kit come second.

PAKAIAN MENDAKI DI HUTAN KHATULISTIWA DAN PERGUNUNGAN

kebanyakan dari kita sudah arif memilih pakaian mendaki terbaik tapi bagaimana pula dengan baju untuk tidur ataupu set pakaian kering?

pada pendapat saya, kedua dua set ini perlu boleh ditukar gantikan dan dibina berasaskan prinsip pemilihan pakaian mendaki supaya dapat menganti pakaian mendaki didalam waktu kecemasan. mungkin hanya perlu sedikit aksesori yang tebal dan gebu untuk lebih kesan pemanasan.

perlu diingatkan, pertahanan pertama ialah pakaian itu sendiri. teduhan, pek survival, pek keselamatan cemas hanya yang kedua. 





its also worth noting that no matter where or what time u planning to attempt a hike, always assume its gonna rain, and u gonna have to cross rivers at least waist deep. so prepare for rain with rain gears like a good rain coat or disposable rain coat, and prepare to get ur bag submerged in water as well. oh, i wrote about equipments and method to pack the bag in here. do visit! hehe :D

perlu diingatkan juga, tidak kira tempat dan waktu anda menrancang untuk mendaki atau berkhemah, sentiasa anggap hujan akan datang dan perlu merentas sungai sekurang kurangnya paras pinggang. jadi bersedialah dengan baju hujan atau baju hujan pakai buang dan bersedia untuk bag juga tenggelam dalam air. saya telah menulis berkenaan kelengkapan mendaki dan cara memuatkan barang kedalam bag disini. sila lawati! :D

my wishlist

1. wide lense. ultra wide angle lense
hehe.
ok maybe not nikon.



third party ones will also do for a fraction of the price (cold sweat)

this gotta set me back RM1000 - RM2000 or so. perhaps i'll opt for the used set.

im actually torn between the tokina 11-16 f/2.8 (because a friend using it) and 12-28 f/4 which more usable for most condition. i always wanted a fast lens but shooting wide i would want sharpness all over and shoot f/8 or even f/11.
and not to mention the high iso capabilities and its on auto some more. that gotta cover the lowlight situation.
f/2.8 can go with a slight longer zoom.. wait... not another..waitttttt!!!

ok. focus. gotta shoot them all tight spaces and dramatic architectural nature landscape!

2. lipstick.

i dont always wear one but always comfortable to carry a good one.

dont have to be a Dior but i love the handbags so a lipstick is easy steal. eh? :P
the price if a little over RM100.

matte is the current hype now eh? not sure if i gonna like it im currently on a very creamy Lancome and i noticed at the end of the day it looks rather matte to me. if i wasnt eating that is haha. but even so reapplying and drinking all over also make it stay for the rest of the day and i guess it got pigmented there for a bit.

actually i dont mind going for cheaper ones like clinique. but i find the colours arent too many but of course it half the price too lol.






now i have 2 more months to fund..... or not...... well life is so full of uncertainties. but gotta love life and make it a good one :D

such an underdog feeling

the other day i joined my friends for a coffee. catching up and just talk and talk.
so my friend introduced me to this FB group of which im excited about. im a little slow on these things. my friend is in his 40s if not 50s but i feel a bit older than to he is. *shrugs*

the thing about exposing self to the wide wild ocean.. it took me awhile to sink in.. how insignificantly small i am as compared to them giant whales and dolphins and mantaray whatever. still havent quite recovered from the shock. 

finding the right method to propel my way up aint easy task. i never had to think about this all this while. u know, my intelligence got it covered most of the time. do my things right, score in exams, fill up my times gaining new skills and practice them perform beyond the classroom and wallah i earned that tight spot. i bagged written certs n scrolls to mark my achievments. and then i digest them books and standards and technical specs i can explain well the hows and whys and when people dont listen i cant help but to shut them off. and i feel rightfully so. terminating people and companies is one of my major guilty pleasure. eliminating cause of problem is one of my way to solve a problem. damn cruel but it gets the job done so i didnt do anything wrong alright? not once people telling to my face my attittude is like sheet. but my paymasters like it, im all protecting their interest as long as im doing that, my paycheck never betrayed me. who cares them haters, eh.  

apparently that wasnt good enough. nobody gonna trust me with their money if i am me hahah. bitter truth. im a terrible person as a person. my intelligence has never been proven so limited until now. my crappy people skill will only get myself buried alive. earning a spot in very general setting could be fierce or rough idk i never been there myself! i dont do a job in this capacity im creating one. i dont get automatically paid a the end of every month i gotta work for every ringgit coming in! need to work even more to keep even more of them sweet money coming! im sensing they using different approach to this? yes? no? 

its pressing me just to think about it so i avoided to even think about it anymore. but i want to think about it now. my little incapable self got to start crawling before taking that first baby steps. 

name of my business - something not mouthful. now i have a mouthful name. how do i shorten it?? penjelajah perak emas. tongue twister much? i cant even put it PPE. what? personal preservation of elite? at ease? extraordinaire? earning? economic. preservation of personal economy. personal.preserve.enrich.empower.

finding the right time to sell - sensibly, u gotta have monthly allocation to buy my products la people. do i even need to really tell u this? u have monthly budget for fancy coffee and flowy tudungs why cant u portion out a little to build something that u can recover back with little depreciation or about the same value or even more in the future? u buy cars for its resale value, no? 

target group to buy my products - people of working  class. sell as gift item. sell as souvenir, sell as commemorative token. sell beyond its face value and metal value. all those money u spend u sure have some more money to save. 

the reason im selling what i want to sell - its one of the simplest form of physical asset. a wealth u can hold, carry, inherit, buy and sell with it. its like money but its not money. it used to be money until they revise the money system. but if its not money banks keep buying them. countries keep buying them. they use them to pay debts. if it works in large scale why cant it work in small scale?

channels to market my products - friends and families.. through online medias of course.

where to sell - instagram and facebook. am looking as physical shops to place samples, too. or sell on weekends


little report on how he progress so far...

i'll be honest now. the return so far is pretty handsome. no complain on this. buyers are not skimping once they know the worth of things they are buying. 
but the cashflow is not that smooth flowing. i cant seem to penetrate into new people much?


there must be a way.. right?

charting a new normal

oh i cant sleep so here goes. another blog post hehe

i have been putting a lot of thoughts to this phrase.
'the new normal'
trends, hypes, fads, virals. all its other names.

i was never a follower to these things. shifting from information age to big data age made me learn a thing or two about the fast information travel. first, people never really cross check their info. second, people are eager to feel useful and having sense of purpose. being the first to pass the info can give that satisfaction. third, people love to correct. it doesnt take much to trigger but people can really go on and on beyond the issues at hand.

filtering facts from opinion also seems to be a thing of the past. doesnt matter hitting the sentiments, offensive or not, its what that sells and that will be just what that will be reported as headline. RIP journalism. it crushed my heart when the saying 'a picture can tell a thousand words' now backfired. people can really make up more than a thousand stories from one single picture alone. again, doesnt matter the truth, as long as it sells, it garners likes shares and comments.

so, back to the title.. the new normal. i am always a big believer to fundamental approach. if it ticks all the basics then its for me. i dont wear fancy clothes with ruffels because that might go out of trend and i can use it anymore. i tend to buy as plain clothings as possible because thats the basics. its very hard to change my own mindset and view that that is not where the trends, hypes, fads, and virals is. take beauty for example. how cosmetics company made millions n billions selling unfundamental products. how fashion magazine firms is the cooler workplace of choice than the engineering and architecture firms.

something must be right somewhere.

i suppose it must still be revolving around one fundamental thing or two. instead of purpose, they pulling the crowd by... something very basic, too.
sentiments?
fast real measurable results?


gotta have more intense series of shower thoughts to all this questions hehe

#mytakecharge the take off

we are still in the midst of setting up.. building content.. fronting objectives of this name.

it is supposed to be just a platform to raise awareness. one of the many.

i envision we could eventually inculcate this as a habit and elevate the practice as a new normal. just one person in one family is adequate; given the current state of preparedness in most families.

but lets be honest.. it sounds dull. i wonder if putting numbers would make it all more exciting? ending the persuasive with a clear call for action.

oh.. perhaps that is going to require damn interesting marketing.. maybe thai level. lol. at first u look at it interesting, the next u sakit hati why so funny, then u got the message. damn brilliant!
yeah. lets do that!

ok first thing first get those infographics up!!
