    ^heh... I'm still Catholic and a girl, so 2/3 ain't bad

    @happynz - I don't know if you're referring to me, re: Chinese New Year? CNY isn't a big deal in PI, only 1 day holiday. But I have several days off at the end of the year (forced leave) and flights to KL have been booked.

    Those photos look really nice.

    When are you going Katie? If you time it right you might be able to meet up with Dilly, he's often around that neck of the woods.

    ^I don't know if I'd like to meet up with Dilly. I'll be with the BF and I don't know if it's a good idea for them to meet! 555 (BF knows about TD. He's seen some of my travel threads and he just laughed at some comments). Also, BF and I have agreed that we'd like to spend less time in KL and more time in Cameron - less city, more countryside. I think Dill is more of a city person.

    He is a good catholic boy but is often in need of an emergency confessional booth.

    Never far from here in KL central.

    I'll be over there in the New Year. I'll have you know I'm back in better shape than I was on the prior hiking thread.below,

    http://teakdoor.com/malaysia-forum/1...rtle-beach.htm

    love walking now, did a little trek last week, walk 8-10kms on weekdays and would love to come do a trek with you. My wife's kinda of into it now too.

    I much prefer the Countryside to the City nowadays and will go see those Cameron Highlands in the new year.

    If we do meet, maybe tell your boyfriend I'm Davis Knowlton or Norton or Tomcat? I can pull off the Yank acccent

    Come on... My street cred can't be compared to Luigi, Looper or Bettyboo?

    BTW... How long are these treks you are doing?

    For how long?

    We've done the ten peaks in the last few years - brilliant.

    The best hike, however, was Mount Kinabalu . . . three times with the girls and one Christmas . . . simply an amazing place. fter which you go back to Kota Kinabalu and have some of the best food in the region

    2 day ascent, hiring a guide, sleeping in a hostel... , climbing in the dark.... Think I'll give that another year PH

    . The feeling that you are hanging off the side of a mountain with only your own bare hands to hold you is somewhat terrifying.

    @PH - a hike/FB friend of mine has trekked Kinabalu early this year - I've seen his pics. He's now training for a Kilimanjaro trek in late September. He said the Kinabalu trail is fairly easy and I could handle it. He's a gym buff and is usually in the lead pack during my tough hikes, while I'm in team sweeper. Haha. Budget for Kinabalu, accdg to him, was reasonable. It's in my "maybe" bucket list - got some priorities in terms of $$ and my knee is still recovering from being banged up from my last hike.

    @Dill - PM sent! I've also seen that list of trails around KL. Might do a minor hike only - don't know if my knee will be 100% by December.

    I went to Cameron a few years back in search of the giant stinky flower. You need to join a group with a guide. Only downside is the Euros who turn up for the trek in jeans & sandals complaining about the mud.

    Climbed Kinabalu last year. Groups had people of all ages and most made it up okay.
