Read in the news this morning that those who failed to submit their forms by today will face a RM200 penalty. RM200? Aiya..
After filling in the cukai pelepasan section, i still had around Rm8+ to pay up to LHDN.. Sigh..

the room I was occupying overlooked this view. I gather most Seri Malaysia hotels are at the most 3 storeys high and look quite like a hostel from afar.

Today my calves are feeling a slight soreness due to the hike they did on Saturday. Ascending and descending the trails at Kg. Kiau. heheh...
On the second day of race, participants had to cycle/run from Lobong2 to Kg. Kiau via the inland route.. winding into forests and over streams... braving the leeches of Kiau..(it rained heavily sometime from 11am to about 4 pm).. and back to Lobong2.

sunset at Kg. Kiau Nulu ( high on top of Kiau Hill)
On Sunday, racers had to cycle down from Lobong2 to Kg Kiau again (Kg. Kiau is a village situated at the foot of the hill) and then cycle a steep cemented road up to the main road going to Ranau. After that, they were to cycle on towards National Park for the final leg of the race which was the orienteering activity.
On your mark..
Off they go!
Park your Mountain Bikes here..
After this..we go here.. and then run there..
This is Ed Arambarri ( I think), an American who teamed up with a UK toughman to join the Extreme Category. I asked him whether he was coming for next year's race. He said, probably not, this race was very hard. They won, as a matter of fact.
