P/S: This post is from my old blog. I would like to elaborate more and some of it is added extra from the original.

21 May 2006 : Finally I manage to play futsal for the first time. Got a call from my friend mD for a game at 8:30PM at Score Arena near Jalan Kuchai Lama, Kuchai Lama (Kuala Lumpur). We have 10 players in the game. Most of them are from secondary school and I believe I am the youngest among them. All of them are my senior, I group with my friend mD and a 3 others. Its been so long since the last time I play soccer for my secondary school team (that was since year 2000). Moreover I have been lacking exercise and no sexcerise as well, I am easily exhausted but I felt very excited as I am about to play the sport that I love and longing for..

The game were great except there is no seriousness in it and everyone were not aggressive in the game. I enjoy myself playing in the game. It only cost me RM 9 for 1 hour of sweat and I think it worth it all. I am looking forward for another session but when will that be??

Rock Climbing @ Summit

17 MAY 2006 : I finally manage to drag Desmond together for rock climbing at SUMMIT. The place is kinda cool. Located at the highest floor of the mall, just right above the IT Centre in the mall.

Desmond get me his clothings while I go straight from my work in the heart of KL. I reach The Summit Shopping Centre at 7:30PM (1930 hours). We proceed to the counter and they ask us to sign a registration form. We must pay for the entrance fee and some rental equipment such as harness (the one where you need to wear and expose your crotch), Rock shoes (quite comfy shoes and better gripping) and Belay set (a “figure 8” and a “locking carabiner”). We also go for the BRSIC (Basic Rock Climbing Safety Instruction Course), this is for beginners.

Although I had done rock climbing, abselling and repelling before but it was 8 years ago. I still remember that time I am quite PRO about the lockings and the safety measurement. NOW I think I seriously need to buckle up my tummy and do more GYM to get back my muscle.

In the BRSIC, we learn how to tie a double 8 figure knot for climbers and how to secure the belay set making sure the climber didn’t fall down on the floor when he slip while climbing. I manage to complete the basic climb but I can’t achieve the tougher one. I will go there one weekend and try it again. It’s good to start doing all these adventurous activities. Once I manage to complete all these, I will go to climb the real ones.
