The Breathtaking Sunrise at Broga Hill, Malaysia

My day started at 4.00am. Woke up, freshen up, then I'm all ready to do some little exercise. We are headed to Semenyih, a town near Kajang which is roughly 40mins away from my home.

Arriving at the peak does really give you a different type of satisfaction than sitting down in front of the computer surfing the net and exploring some programs. It gave me a totally different perspective on what we value in life. Perhaps I finally understand my friends that took up the challenge at Mount K.K. I’m definitely looking forward at that.

The entire journey up doesn’t really fascinate you with anything except you have to be vary of your surrounding and not to slip and fall down. If you have good stamina and frequently work out, this place wouldn’t take you more than 30 minutes to reach the top, on an average, it would be from 1 hour. Coming down the hill is definitely easier though as I can stress again, to be careful and not to slip. As this time, I slip during my way down.

It’s even amazing that there is this many people are actually up there. And some were already at the top since 5 A.M. in the morning. It does sounds reasonably crazy, but being there early in the morning might enable to capture some cool moments. The wind is strong and cold right at that moment. Definitely different feeling you get from visiting Genting Highlands. And what I love the most is the beautiful sunrise I won’t see usually. The breathtaking o sunrise!
