When getting your hammock up and the fire started was the most stressful part of the day; not bills, not finishing jobs by the deadline, and certainly not traffic jams. I miss joking about and sleeping with my double hammock buddy.

August 2013. It was just a few days into the Trek and Dive Phase of Raleigh Borneo 13E Expedition when one of us got injured and had to be transported out. One of the project managers slipped and had a deep open wound with visible flesh and bone on her leg. No blood though. And what interesting was that she's a nurse by profession and medic officer for the group. Knowing how to handle the situation, she gave herself a jab while bandaging her own wound.
.
She couldn't walk, at all. And she's big size. Huge. We tried making a stretcher out of the natural resources we could find in the jungle. But it couldn't withstand her weight. At the end, the two local guides, smaller in size, but strong and fit, took turn to piggyback her out from the woods. One of them was Henry, the ever friendly and skillful jungle guides I've ever met. Carrying the casualty out was an arduous task. Imagine, finding balance trekking on the harsh terrain, going downhill, manoeuvring between giants thick trees, while carrying someone so much heavier than you.
.
Being the only local in the group of volunteers, I was tasked, with two others, to accompany the casualty out to the nearest city, Tenom, to get medical assistance. I think i did a pretty good job as a translator. From trekking on foot, to cruising the river in a long boat and then hours of bumpy 4WD ride to Tenom, she was then sent to KK for better treatment. We then headed back to the jungle to continue our expedition.
.
That's the Raleigh spirit. We don't leave anyone behind. "Get out there." That's our slogan.
.
Each of us was carrying a rucksack weighed more than 15kg, containing personal belongings, hammock and tarps, canned food, jerrycan etc, walking daily from 6am for 5 to 9 hours a day.

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of life to enjoy the calm embrace of Mother Nature. It really does wonders for the stressed out soul.

I'll miss the sight of the sun rays piercing through the trees at dawn while we wait for our water to boil over our self made campfire.

As Raleigh is a programme that mainly focuses on youth development, apart from serving communities and championing environmental projects, most of the youth development happens here: on trek.
---
My trek group (Shout-out to the tontolous HAHAHAHAH) who were supported by 3 guides, trekked through mountain ridges and jungle trails from Tambunan to Kiulu, with the distance spanning at almost 70km in total. We trekked for 16 days carrying kilos of personal stuff, food and group equipment.
---
Although trek has been cut short for me due to some unfortunate incidents, I've learned alot about myself in this phase. Being a day leader on trek has certainly made me more aware of the decisions that have to be made with the group, especially in an environment like the jungle. The guides were so friendly (sesi mesyuarat hehe) and helpful. Ken, Giant, Zino, and Henry, thank you for being such awesome guides! You guys are legends.
---
Most importantly I want to say thank you to the team for being such awesome teammates. Your laughters and jokes were what made our walking days less painful and tiring. In Theresie's words, we are strong!
---
Trek made me realise how beautiful Sabah is and how spending time in the arms of mother nature puts things into perspective; we don't need much to live comfortably and happily :)
