Mencabar Diri Mendaki Bukit Tirig (Tirig Hill) Di Kampung Lapasan Telipok

Jika anda tinggal di area berdekatan dengan bandaraya Kota Kinabalu, Sabah dan suka dengan aktiviti outdoor seperti hiking, mendaki bukit adalah salah satu aktiviti yang boleh anda lakukan. Hujung minggu lepas saya berkesempatan mencabar diri mendaki Bukit Tirig (Tirig Hill) yang terletak di Kampung Lapasan, Telipok.

Kali ini selepas habis banyak masa menghadap komputer semasa tidak berkerja/cuti untuk promosi affiliate (buat duit online) dengan XM Forex Partnership terfikir pula untuk keluarkan sedikit peluh untuk kembali bersemangat. Nak tahu lebih lanjut mengenai XM Partnership ini cuba check sini. Sebenarnya online marketing ini bukanlah kerja utama tetapi agak banyak juga masa dihabiskan untuk ini terutama semasa hujung minggu dan selepas waktu berkerja tetai yang bestnya pulangannya juga agak baik setakat ini.

OK..berbalik kepada mendaki bukit Tirig, cabaran utamanya ialah mencari titik permulaan pendakian. Bukan senang mencarinya. Di bawah saya belanja sedikit gambar untuk anda.

Untuk mendaki Bukit Tirig anda perlu ke Kampung Lapasan, Telipok berdekatan juga dengan pusat pembuangan sambah dan letak kereta anda di kawasan berdekatan dengan Gereja Katolik St. Flora. Dari situ anda boleh berjalan melalui berberapa buah rumah sebelum sampai ke starting point laluan mendaki ke puncak Bukit Tirig.

Gambar di bawah adalah laluan permulaan (starting point) ke puncak Bukit Tirig.
Laluan mendaki Bukit Tirig di Kampung Lapasan ini sebenarnya dibuat oleh penduduk kampung untuk laluan upacara Jalan Salib mereka. Laluan ini kemudiannya atas permintaan orang ramai dibuat sehingga ke puncak untuk orang ramai mendakit bukit tersebut dengan selamat dan menikmati keindahan kawasan sekitar dari puncak Bukit Tirig.

Perjalanan untuk sampai kepuncak mengambil masa 15 hingga 20 minit bergantung kepada ketahanan fizikal dan stamina pendaki.

Saya sering melihat pelajar-pelajar sekolah berlari naik dan mereka mungkin hanya mengambil masa sekitar 5 minit untuk sampak ke puncak. 
Laluan ini sering dibersihkan dan diselengara oleh penduduk Kampung Lapasan untuk keselamatan pendaki dan untuk upacara Jalan Salib. 
Laluan ini tidaklah begitu curam atau mencabar. Ianya sesuai untuk pelajar dan kanak-kanak juga. Saya pernah melihat kanak-kanak berumur lingkungan 3 tahun juga turut mendaki Bukit Tirig ditemani ibubapa. 
Menjelang sampai ke puncak Bukit Tirig, anda boleh melihat bendera Persekutuan Malaysia dan Bendera Negara Sabah berkibar dengan megah menghilangkan kepenatan anda mendaki dan menimbulkan keinginan untuk segera sampai ke puncak. 
Jika anda melihat tayar besar tergantung dengan tulisan 'TIRIG HILL' di puncak, itu bermakna anda sudah sampai ke puncak Bukit Tirig. Suasana udara dipuncak ini agak nyaman dan sejuk. 

Di pertengahan laluan mendaki anda akan melalui kawasan yang agak redup kerana dilitupi pokok-pokok besar.

Tempat berehat dan duduk santai ada disediakan di berberapa tempat di sepanjang laluan tersebut untuk kemudahan pendaki berehat melepaskan penat.
Kawasan puncak bukit ini amat bersih dan luas. Tempat ini sering dibersihkan oleh peniaga-peniaga minuman ringan di puncak bukit ini. Jika anda tidak ada membawa air minuman, anda tidak perlu risau kerana minuman ada dijual dipuncak ini pada sebelah petang. 
Jika anda gemar aktiviti lasak, mendaki Bukit Tirig adalah salah satu aktivi luar (outdoor activity) yang boleh anda buat. Kawasan ini memang selamat dan penduduk Kampung Lapasan sentiasa memantau keselamatan dan laluan ini sepanjang masa. 

Pemandangan dari atas puncak Bukit Tirig memang cantik dan udaranya juga amat nyaman. Kepenatan anda mendaki akan berbaloi dengan pemandangan yang indah. Anda boleh mengambil gambar matahari terbit atau terbenam dari puncak bukit ini.

Untuk pendakian bukit di sekitar Kota Kinabalu yang seterusnya, saya bercadang hendak mencabar diri pula mendaki Bukit Gundul (Gondol) sebuah bukit yang agak tinggi juga terletak bersebelahan dengan UiTM di Sepanggar.

Mencabar Diri Mendaki Bukit Nuluh Lapai

Mendaki Bukit Nuluh Lapai di Kampung Lapasan Telipok.Berberapa minggu yang lepas saya ada buat post mengenai mendaki Bukit Tirig yang terletak di Kampung Lapasan Telipok. Kali ini saya kongsi pengalaman mendaki Bukit Nuluh Lapai yang juga terletak di Kampung Lapasan Telipok.

Sebenarnya kedua-dua bukit ini bersebelahan antara satu sama lain. Tidak hairanlah hari itu ada juga terserempak dengan pendaki-pendaki yang mencabar Bukit Nuluh Lapai yang sudah mendaki Bukit Tirig berberapa jam sebelum itu.

Itu untuk mereka yang mempunya stamina yang tinggi. Untuk pendaki yang tidak berapa tinggi daya tahan seperti aku, maka mendaki satu bukit seminggu pun sudah cukup mencabar.


Titik permulaan pendakian ke puncak Bukit Nuluh Lapai ini terletak betul-betul di hadapan jalan masuk ke Gayang Seafood Restauran yang terkenal dengan hidangan makanan lautnya.

Sebenarnya laluan ini baru diteroka/diwujudkan oleh penduduk Kampung Lapasan. Boleh kelihatan penduduk kampung sedang membina pondok menjual buah dan minuman dan papan tanda juga baru dibina.

Syabas kepada penduduk kampung yang terlibat.
Pendakian dari titik permulaan di tepi jalan besar ke puncak ini agak mencabar berbanding dengan pendakian ke Bukit Tirig. 

Pendakian dari titik permulaan sampai ke puncak amat memenatkan berbanding dengan pendakian di Bukit Tirig. Laluan mendaki dibuat di celah-celah kayu dan agak curam menyebabkan aku terpaksa berhenti berberapa kali untuk melepaskan penat dan lenguh di kaki. 
Pendaki kena lebih berhati-hati semasa mendaki kerana jalannya yang agak curam, terdapat tunggul kayu di laluan mendaki dan juga tali hutan yang boleh menyebabkan anda boleh jatuh tergolek jika kaki tersandung/tersangkut semasa mendaki.

Pemandangan di puncak memang amat cantik. Pengemar melihat matahari terbenam atau jurugambar boleh duduk di pondok-pondok yang disediakan sementara menunggu detik matahari terbenam untuk mengambil gambar.

Tandas dan jualan minuman ringan juga ada di puncak bukit ini. Memang agak cantik kerana bunga-bunga banyak ditanam di puncak oleh penduduk kampung. Ada ambil gambar tapi terdelete lah pulak sebelum sempat upload di sini.

Cuma satu...pastikan anda membawa bersama lampu suluh jika berbuat demikian kerana perjalanan turun selepas matahari terbenam agak gelam dengan lorong/laluan mendaki yang agak curam, sempit dan gelap kerana sepanjang laluan adalah di bawah pohon yang redup biarpun semasa matahari masih bersinar.

Rating... aku rasa mendaki Bukit Nuluh Lapai lebih mencabar berbanding mendaki Bukit Tirig. Kepada yang belum mendakinya anda bolehlah mencabar diri anda mencuba mendaki Bukit Nuluh Lapai ini.

Queens Park Rangers (QPR) belasah Sabah 5-0

Semalam saya buat pertama kalinya selepas lebih 10 tahun untuk datang menonton perlawanan bola sepak antara Queens Park Rangers (QPR) dan Sabah. Kesudahannya QPR membelasah Sabah 5-0 di Stadium Likas Kota Kinabalu.

Sejak akhir-akhir ini memang saya tidak pernah teringin menonton perlawanan bola yang melibatkan pasukan negeri Sabah. Sebabnya, saya menjadi marah-marah bila melihat mutu permainan yang ditunjukan oleh pasukan negeri. Kehadiran QPR di Stadium Likas semalam berjaya menarik begitu ramai penonton. Stadium Likas 80% di penuhi penonton, situasi yang jarang berlaku sejak zaman Matlan Marjan masih bersama pasukan Sabah dahulu.

Kali terakhir saya menonton bola sepak di Stadium Likas ialah semasa pasukan Sabah masih dianggotai oleh Scott dan Matlan Marjan. Masa itu Stadium Likas selalu dipenuhi penonton.

Berbalik kepada permainan persahabatan antara QPR dan Sabah, kelihatan bahawa gaya/style permainan QPR di England tidak keluar atau tidak berjaya dipaksa keluar oleh pemain-pemain Sabah. Jurang skill, ketahanan mental dan kecergasan fizikal antara QPR dan Sabah begitu ketara sekali.


Gawang pasukan negeri Sabah ditembusi seawal minit ke-7, walaupun QPR kelihatan tidak bersungguh-sungguh hendak membolosi pintu gol pasukan Sabah. QPR kelihatan bermain sambil lewa untuk cuba mengimbangi gaya permainan pasukan Sabah.


Sepanjang 90 minit masa permainan, kedengaran di kiri-kanan penonton membuat pernilaian mengenai mutu permainan pasukan Sabah. Antaranya, ramai yang berpendapat bahawa stamina pemain-pemain Sabah tidak cukup tinggi, malas kejar bola dan kemahiran mengawal bola yang lemah.


Timbul persoalan. Apakah usaha yang perlu dilakukan untuk menaikkan mutu permainan pasukan Sabah. Ramai berpendapat, pengaruh dan campur tangan politik dalam bola sepak Sabah harus dihapuskan. Spekulasi mengenai unsur pemilihan pemain sebab tekanan politik, kaitan keluarga dan sebagainya antara persoalan yang sering timbul. 


Sudah kehabisankah Sabah pemain yang betul-betul boleh bermain? Rasanya pemilihan pemain yang betul-betul serius di seluruh negeri untuk mencungkil bakat belum dibuat secara maksimum. 


Jika ini tidak ditangani dengan serius, sudah tentu Stadium Likas sentiasa kosong penonton setiap kali pasukan Sabah bermain. Ini jika terus berlaku tidak akan meningkatkan bola sepak di Sabah

David Beckham takes 40 percent pay cut!

Oh wow.. this is rather shocking news. But then again he is already so rich by now. It seems he is already aware that he is already past his prime.

The British celebrity footballer is no longer Major League Soccer's highest-paid player after his salary was cut nearly 40 per cent in his new contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Marco Simoncelli dies after crash in Sepang, Malaysia

SEPANG: Italy’s Marco Simoncelli died on Sunday of injuries sustained in a crash that resulted in the cancellation of the Malaysian MotoGP, in the latest tragedy to hit motor sports.

The crash occurred just minutes after the race began when the 24-year-old Honda rider’s bike veered across the track and into the path of riders Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi.

Simoncelli had his helmet knocked off in the ensuing collision, which occurred on turn 11.

MotoGP later announced Simoncelli’s death in a one-line statement on its website.

“Marco Simoncelli succumbed to injuries sustained in Malaysia,” it said.

Motor sports have seen a nightmare stretch recently and Simoncelli’s death looked certain to throw open more questions over safety.

Last weekend, 2010 MotoGP champ Jorge Lorenzo crashed during warm-ups in Australia, severing a finger, while two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon died in a 15-car crash in Las Vegas in Indy Car.

The race at Malaysia’s Sepang track was immediately red-flagged following the crash and organisers later announced it had been cancelled.

Edwards also fell but escaped serious injury, while Rossi was able to return to the pits.

Although there is a final race in Spain still to come, Australia’s Casey Stoner has already secured the 2011 championship with his win last weekend in the Australian Grand Prix.

Tributes from fellow riders

It was confirmed on www.motogp.com that he died at 4.56pm local time.

The organisers cancelled the race when the extent of Simoncelli’s injuries become apparent, having halted it immediately after the accident.

Newly-crowned champion Casey admitted immediately after the crash he had feared the worse.

“As soon as I saw the footage it just makes you sick inside,” the Australian told BBC2.

“Whenever the helmet comes off that’s not a good sign.”

Tributes came in from his fellow riders.

British MotoGP rider Cal Crutchlow wrote on Twitter: “RIP Marco Simoncelli ! A great rider and all round nice guy. My thoughts are with all his family & friends. I will never forget today.” - Agencies

Mt Kinabalu climbathon more challenging next year

KOTA KINABALU: Mount Kinabalu International Climbathon is set to be even more challenging next year.

The new 23km route will require runners to race from Kinabalu Park up the mountain until Layang-Layang Hut. They will then go down the Mesilau trail before descending to Kundasang town at the foothill of the mountain.

Billed as the world's toughest mountain race, it is aimed at testing the endurance of competitors by running up and down Mount Kinabalu.

State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said next year's competition would be known as Mount Kinabalu International Climbathon: Adventure Series.

Come Oct 22 to 23, the 25th edition of the climbathon will be the final time that participants run the traditional 21km route up and down the 4,095m mountain.

The present route requires participants to run from Timpohon Gate the entry point to the summit trail to the peak and back.

Explaining the new route, Masidi said it was time for an overhaul of the race.

The new route will be thrilling and challenging for the runners.

He said the state wanted the competition to be a sports tourism event instead of just a sporting activity.

Meanwhile, those intending to climb Mount Kinabalu have an option to wear a climber tracker device thanks to an agreement between Sabah Parks, Celcom and its business partner Xtend Services Sdn Bhd.

Celcom will provide 50 devices for a trial period of three months to gauge their efficiency.

Masidi said climbers would have peace of mind knowing that in the event of a mishap, rescuers would know where to find them.

Sunduvan: Whatever it is safety should be the priority. Not by making the race more challenging and we are forgetting safety issues.

Usain Bolt 100 metres disqualification at 2011 in Daegu, South Korea.

Ohh wow, this is rather shocking news. The 100 metres sprinter king was disqualified at the 2011 IAAF World Athletics Championshim in Daegu, South Korea.

This is very a very dissapointing news. I believe after this there will be a real debate on the IAAF new rules.

Below is the video of Usain Bolt's 100 metres disqualification at the 2011 IAAF World Athletics Championship

Heartache for the 100 metres World and Olympic Champion and World Record Holder, Usain Bolt who was disqualified in the 100 metres men's final at the IAAF World Athletics Championship in Daegu, South Korea.

Bolt, the mercurical Jamaican who holds the current 100 metres world record at 9.58 secs, was disqualified after he false-started, that is off the starting block too soon before the starter gun exploded.

The incident stunned Daegu and stunned the world.

Why did this happened to the world's best athlete?

IAAF is stupid too for introducing the stupid new rules of disqualifying a runner for one false start. It should be disqualification after 2 false-starts as being practised in the past where 1 false start leads to caution and 2nd false start by the same sprinter or runner, leads to automatic disqualification and the runner has to leave the track.

Heart-ache for Usain Bolt for he trained hard for 2 years for this occasion, to defend his world title and possibly to shatter his own 100 metres world record.

After being asked to leave the track, Usain Bolt was heard shouting loudly near the stadium's entrance.

He also argued with a Korean official who persisted in asking Bolt to leave the track immediately.

In the subsequent 100 metres final race, Usain Bolt's Jamaican compatriot, Yohan Blake wins the 100 metres race in 9.92 secs ahead of USA's Walter Dix and 2003 World 100 metres Champion, Kim Collins.

Well, Kim Collins leads the race up to 70 metres before being overtaken by the super accelaration of Yohan Blake. Collins was pipped into 3rd place at the finishing line by Walter Dix.

The result is among the slowest 100 metres final ever seen in the history of the Olympics and the world championships. Only 1 runner, that is the winner Yohan Blake dipped below 10 seconds.

The full result of the poor 2011 IAAF world championship 100 metres men final in Daegu, South Korea

Gold - Yohan Blake Jamaica 09.92
Silver - Walter Dix United States 10.08
Bronze - Kim Collins Saint Kitts and Nevis 10.09
4th Christophe Lemaitre France 10.19 (European Champion)
5th Daniel Bailey Antigua and Barbuda 10.26
6th Jimmy Vicaut France 10.27
7th Nesta Carter Jamaica 10.95
8th Usain Bolt Jamaica 9DISQUALIFIED)

Notabale Absentee - Tyson Gay - USA (personal best 9.69 secs due to hip injury) and Asafa Powell (Jamaica) personal best 9.72 secs due to groin injury.

The best 100 metres race was in the 1991 World Championship final in Tokyo, Japan where 6 runners dipped below 10 seconds.

The historic race was won by USA legendary sprinter and long jumper, Carl Lewis in then world record time of 9.86 seconds, erasing the old record of 9.90 secs set by USA's Leroy Burell.

The 1991 IAAF World Championship, 100 metres full results, Amazing isn't it :

Gold - Carl Lewis (USA) 9.86 World Record
Silver - Leroy Burrell (USA) 9.88 PB (previous world record holder)
Bronze - Dennis Mitchell (USA) 9.91 PB
4th. Linford Christie (GBR) 9.92 ER
5th. Frankie Fredericks (NAM) 9.95 AR
6th. Raymond Stewart (JAM) 9.96 PB
7th. Robson Caetano da Silva (BRA) 10.12
8th. Bruny Surin (CAN) 10.14

Carl Lewis also set 2 world records in the 4 x 100 metres final and the long jump final. However despite registering a world record jump of 8.91 metres erasing Bob Beamon's 23 year old record of 8.90 metres, Lewis still only manage second place.

The champion was USA's Mike Powell who jumped 8.95 metres, a distance never been broken till this day, 29th August 2011, after almost 20 years.

That is the leap into the new century.

Seven Ghosts surfing adventure in Indonesia

A dreamlike wave found in an Indonesian river is stunning surf world
By: Chris Mauro, GrindTV.com

As discoveries of secret surf spots go, the incredible find by Rip Curl team members during a recent "Search" expedition in the jungles of Indonesia may be unrivaled.

What makes this latest wave discovery so fascinating is that it was made not on a coastline or island shore, but on a remote jungle river that gets pounded by a powerful tidal bore. But unlike other tidal bores that produce relatively small, mushy waves, this remarkable phenomenon pushes swells upstream in dream-like fashion at heights of 8 to 10 feet.

"This was our biggest score in twenty years of exploring," says Tom Curren, a former three-time world surfing champion who has been roaming the world's coastlines scouring for the proverbial perfect wave ever since winning his last world title in 1990. Because the soft-spoken champ has never been one to boast, his stories of this new spot called Seven Ghosts (named after the nearest jungle village) has his fans reeling. Interest surrounding the expedition is hitting a fever pitch as rumors of their score leaked out.

What's so stunning about this finSeven Ghosts surfing spot in Indonesia. New surfing spot named Seven Ghosts in Indonesia. Seven Ghosts river surfing in Indonesiad is the wave's coffee-colored walls break from top to bottom, similar to the hollow powerful waves that peel over coral reefs. But the riverbank refraction of the primary wave sends rebound wedges perpendicular across the river, carving the secondary wave into a line of spinning peaks with cookie-cutter perfection. These mirror-reflection spinners appear choreographed, with all the symmetry of a Rockettes' leg kick, the likes of which has never be found in the ocean...at least not yet.

These are some of the first stunning images of this amazing discovery. Rip Curl will surely be releasing more in the days ahead as they ramp up for the 50th Anniversary of the Rip Curl Pro, the world's longest running professional surfing contest, set for later this month.

Fan Stab Mourinho, bodyguard wounded

A crazed fan who tried to stab former Chelsea football boss Jose Mourinho with a dagger was being hunted last night.

His personal bodyguard wcrazy fan stab mourinho, bodyguard injuredas wounded as the maniac lashed out with the weapon.

Real Madrid coach Mourinho, 48, was hurried away by his security team after the incident at La Coruna airport, north-west Spain.

Spanish media said the security guard, called Eduardo, only realized he had been stabbed when he boarded the team bus.

He thought he had been punched until he saw blood pouring from the wound. The minder needed treatment for a 1.5in (4cm) wound. Real Madrid security chiefs believe the attacker's target was Mourinho.

Newspaper El Periodico said: "Mourinho stopped to sign autographs in arrivals, where a large number of Madrid fans were waiting for the team.

"The bodyguard was near the manager and noticed he had been stabbed in the armpit.

"The security guard realised he had a 4cm wound caused by a sharp object.

"Mourinho was very worried by the incident."

Security cameras recorded last Friday's drama before Real's game with Deportivo and a tall suspect has been identified. Portuguese-born Mourinho was not told about the incident until yesterday.

Security has been stepped up for Real's La Liga fixture against Racing Santander tomorrow.

Mourinho, who moved to Chelsea from Portuguese club Porto in 2004, has experienced scares before.

He told of suffering "weeks of terror" after receiving death threats before Porto won the UEFA Champions League in 2004.

In 2009 he was targeted by Muslim radicals after blaming Inter Milan player Sulley Muntari's loss of form on fasting during Ramadan.

And last year he was warned Macedonian gangsters were planning to kidnap him.

At Chelsea he bagged two consecutive Premier League titles in 2005 and 2006 and left in 2007.

Harimau Malaysia vs Harimau Malaya???

Harimau Malaysia vs Harimau MalayaWe are very happy for our Malaysia soccer team. And we Malaysian are really proud of it. But then there is some issue over the name of Harimau Malaya instead of Harimau Malaysia? It is something like Harimau Malaysia vs Harimau Malaya? Well, Borneo island got harimaus also but we never named it as Harimau Sabah or Harimau Sarawak. It seems Malaya got the patent right for all harimaus in Malaya, they call it Harimau Malaya.

Now this is where the problem begins. Calling our Malaysian Soccer Team as Harimau Malaya does not go too well to many Sarawakian and Sabahan. Personally, I have no problem with that name 'Harimau Malaya. They may call it whatever they like, I don't care.

This is our Malaysian soccer team. Whatever you name it, it should be something that represent all Malaysian. This is what the Sabahan and Sarawakian feels about it.

If you ask me, I don't really care. My only concern is to make sure whatever in Sabah 20-points agreement are implemented and respected. That's what really matter.

I wish to take this opportunity to congratulate our Malaysia Soccer Team. Forget about Harimau Malaya thing. Let just celebrate it.
