NOT for these 6 and countless others who successfully scaled South East Asia’s highest mountain MOUNT KINABALU (LOW’S PEAK at 4095.2M/13,432.26FT) does the word impossible come in mind. CONGRATULATIONS to my wife Chris (whose determination never ceases to amaze me), her sister Julie and colleagues Zurina, Pg. Ali and Teo for rising to the occassion in the face of uncertainty and “humbled by the mountain’s overwhelming power, yet exhilarated by their own accomplishment.” (a quote I borrowed from the description of a book Everest: Mountain Without Mercy). The blog article I posted on Day 1 of my wife’s trip just took on a new definition of WELL HEELED. WELL DONE!

Going through the images from the other climbers, I came across these two great catch by Gina. The circular rainbow just isn’t something you see everyday unless of course you happen to live above the clouds! The sunrise silhouette of the slope is simply breathtaking!

Rounding off the journey from Low’s Peak, Chris brought home a box full of very delicious donuts from BIG APPLE DONUTS—heavenly tastes on Earth and at home! Pictured here is the “MOONRAKER. James Bond’s favourite coco pops”
