2 weeks more to go....

The climb is just 15 days away.

Question : Am I excited? A I looking forward to it?

Answer : No feeling lah.

Two days ago a would-be climber pulled out from our team of 20. No worries about replacement because we have at least 2 ladies who wants to join in. I called the first lady. She approach me some time back in April at the Blossom pasar malam. She planned to organise a Mt Kinabalu trip next year and having her in our July team would benefit her greatly.
I gave her a short deadline for her answer and yesterday, she told me to count her in. I started checking the airasia flight charges. It's so much more expensive than ours. We paid only about RM241. If I were to book her on the same flight as the rest of us, she would have to pay RM415. Well, that can't be helped. So this morning I booked her tickets online with Airasia.
Flight was not the main problem. Because a guy pulled out and this lady was his replacement, we had to work out the room sharing at KK hotel and also the insurance that the guy paid, whether his name could be changed to hers. I made a lot of phone calls and smses these past 2 days. Now waiting for my phone bill.. :(

These few days I've been scrapping... LAST YEAR'S PHOTOS. I'm so lagging...

thanks for all the efforts to accomodate these late changes in the team; hope you can psych yourself up to be excited about climbing this mountain...

I totally understand how you feel. I learnt something out of my organizing experience: 1. never do this kind of thing. 2. travelling alone is much flexible and better. 3. Do not expect and hence no disappointment....

I also feel like pulling out.

hey, no one said organising something like this is a piece of cake; i try to look at the bigger picture, helping some others achieve their dreams and reaching a higher ground, both literally and spiritually.

Planning and organising alone is no fun; i appreciate all the help various people have rendered.

In the final analysis, i think of it as a ministry...a humble effort on my part to touch some lives for God's kingdom... :-)

Thank God this group don't have major problems. Everytime I overcome a problem, I would feel a sense of achievement.I kind of enjoy co-organising this climb.
