It seems that on weekends, thanks to a few Twitter friends, we have been going around the Klang Valley to trek across some bush/forest/jungle (depending on the area) and although it may not be much, it does make one sweat. It may not be effective as a healthy lifestyle as we eat quite a huge helping of Malaysian street food once we finished the trekking.

For the past two month, I managed to join them on excursions through Bukit Gasing, Bukit Cerakah (which entrance is just 500m from my house and Bukit FRIM. As we comprise of over-achievers who walks as if there are gold on top of the hills and those who walk as if each step is an effort in itself, we make sure everyone reached the top of the hills that we are climbing at that particular moment.

There are so many pockets of greens in the Klang Valley and we are planning to climb a few more in the next months. I was too judgmental before in my assessment of these places as I thought we have too few places to trek/jog/appreciate nature but it seems we have quite a few. And after all these times, I only give barely a glance by nature conservationists on their fight to keep these places but now I understand the need.
