I am back to my clinic today. After having a very exhausting trip up and down Mt. Kinabalu on Friday & Saturday (18th & 19th April), I am now back to my usual work. Feels good to be back, but missed the fellowship with other volunteers, Special Olympics athletes and escorts.
I am not sure how to write this, as writing every bits and details would bored you up with the schedules and things that I did. I don’t think what I did would matter to you most, as what I did was just climbing up Kinabalu (which almost all of you did). The main star in time around was a group of 40 special athletes from this region, that never climbed the mountain before.
What I think I would do is separating this Special Olympics post into several series of post over the next few days, with a lot of photos (maybe 10 photos in one post) during the climb. I am going to photoblog this post and the next few to give you the picture on what I have did with these athletes. I snapped more than 100 photos. It will take some time for me to upload all…
This few photos were taken during the flag off ceremony by our newly appointed Sabah’s Ministry of Youth & Sport, Mr. Peter Pang at Timpohon Gate on Friday, 18th April 2008.
Early morning view of Majestic Kinabalu seen from Bundu Tuhan Retreat Center. We stayed here for one night before we start our climb the next morning.
