8 December 2012, Saturday, 7:00 a.m. - Trekking trip lead by Mr Das and accompanied by the resident dogs.
One of the dogs fell into a trench; so Das is trying to pull the dog up. Not to worry; the dog just walked further away and emerged from a swallow trench.
A uniqued fruit
Going up and down many, many hills at the perimeter of the resorts for about 7km
Inquisitive dogs - looking for wild birds, wild chicken or wild boar
Still in my trail running attire which I ran up and down the hills.
Guarded by five vigilant dogs which are constantly on the look-up for danger; they are also enjoying the outdoor activity by running around happily
I was told that in one of the retreats, there were 80 members; the slow ones were left behind and lost their way; they were guided by the dogs safely back to the resorts.
Oil palm estate - the adjecent owner
Crossing a stream
Cooling down - the senior dogs know how to cool themselves by dipping into the water
The trail leads us to the main gate that look like the twin towers in The Lord of the Rings movie, but a much smaller scale.
We are friends after one outing
Yours truly (KC Leong)
