Snowy Mountain in winter

Tgh berehat

Careful driving in this condition is the must

In Threadbo Village

Threadbo River

Hoping to become ski master

Smigging Hole valley

Snowy mountain is one of the known places for winter holiday in New South Wales. Since we are already here, we took one week off and having our trip there. Located in the area gazetted as Kosciousko National Park at the top of Australia great dividing range, it's offering numerous ski slopes for skier at various level. It took almost 5 hrs drove from sydney to reach jindabyne and another 30min to threadbo village or perisher blue where ski resorts are located. Tune to snow FM97.7 to listen to road condition update for safe driving and avoid icy road. Skiing look easy but it's not so when we first learn it. Falling down is the norm for the beginners but it will improve after sometimes. Similarly in life, don't punish ourselves after an episodes of failure but learn why we fail and wake up with greater strength, great plan and doa. Insyaallah, the sun will start shining,fog along the road will clearing and our dream destination in life will be reachable.

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't
If you like to win but you think you can't,
It is almost certain you won't.

If you think you will lose, you are lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with the fellow's will-
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You have got to think high to rise,
You have got to be sure of yourselves before
You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man/woman,
But soon or late, Man/woman who wins
Is the man/woman who THINK HE/SHE CAN.

Fraycinate NP, Keindahan Alam kurniaan Tuhan

Infront of one the most haunted house in Australia, Passonage in Port Arthur

Almost 14 Hrs drove from Sydney to Melbourne with small and old car was rather tiring. After short stayed in Melbourne, we then boarded Melbourne-Tasmania Ferry famously known as 'Spirit of Tasmania' with car. After 10 hrs journey we arrived at Devonport port in Northern Tasmania, then had to drive to Hobart which took another 4 hrs. Finally, we reached our destination Ashwood Holiday Park, Ballerive, Hobart, Tasmania. The Apartment unit was very well kept and self sufficient but quite difficult to get Halal meet or poultry here. We were lucky because we brought our own Halal Poultry in chiller bag from Sydney, if not kena la jadi vegetarian or makan fish and chips aje la . Numerous fascinating destinations which have breathtaking scenery or historic value await to be explored Here in Tasmania. Places around Hobart, Craddle Mountain, Port Arthur, Fracynet NP, Penguin parade in Bundanone and various historic town along heritage highway were among the places we had visited.

Way Down

Being a Malaysian or Visitors to Malaysia, Mount Kinabalu is the must visit destination. Located in Kndasang, about 2 Hours drive from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. If you plan to climb Mount Kinabalu, prior arrangement with mount kinabalu park official is the must. Have overnight stay at various hotel/resort at the base of mount Kinabalu ( e.g:Perkasa Hotel, Pine Resort, Mount Kinabalu National Park resort, etc ), then journey to the peak begin. Each group(10person) will be guarded by 2 national park's guard. After 6-8hrs climbing we will reach Laban Rata, which a temporary shelter before the journey to the peak continued. Journey to the peak start at 2.00am and usually reaches Low's peak at 6am. Eventhough the journey is very tiring but the scenery on the way down makes us forget the hardship of upward journey.
