A day before the end of year 2007, my course mates and I went to a waterfall and playing futsal in Taiping, Perak, about 50 kilometers from our university. It was a different kind of new year celebration as we usually celebrate it by watching fireworks and concerts. [both my arms are still in the pain from sliding down the rocks. Ouch!] Sixteen of my coursemates plus one generous donor came [many thanks to him ;D] By using seven motorcycles and one car, we sure made up most of the scene.
We arrived at Burmese Pool and Waterfall around 4.30 p.m. It has a natural water slide and the water is really cold. The surrounding area is to large to be captured on the pictures. But I did manage to take some:
I got so many pictures to share, but most of us were half naked and I don't think my friends will be flattered if I post it here. lol. On the way back, we came across Taiping Zoo & Night Safari and Taiping Lake Garden. [to see pictures of Taiping Lake Garden click HERE] I should go to Night Safari at least once before my graduation!
After that, we went to Pusat Futsal Purnama. The price for one court is USD14.68 [RM50.00] per hour. Quite a catch considered it was a weekend night. Of course we have to book in advance.
In case you're wondering why some of us not wearing any shirt on, we played on the rule of who get to score first, the other team's member has to take their shirt off. The Malaysian culture called it "togel". The rule usually implied on street soccer to differentiate other team's member. Even Nike already made a short movie about it entitle "JANGAN TOGEL"!
Exhausting and sweaty, I really hope that this 2008 will bring me more friendships and relatively a good year to live. I can't hope better than that. Thanks for reading.
