Bukit Laur

This morning I join a group of a government department under Ministry of Finance (MOF) officers, staffs and their families on a hiking trip to Bukit Laur. Bukit Laur is located at Kampong Subok and is very close to Bukit Marakucing. Actually, I only knew the existence about this hill today. The meeting point is at Simpang 339, Jalan Subok.

Briefing before the climb
Before we start our hiking or climb, we were brief by one of the “kejiranan kampong subok” member. There are 4 hills to climb and the peak is 632 metres from sea level. We were told that from the hills we would be able to see the Ministry of Finance (MOF) building. Few of the "kejiranan kampong subok" members join us and become our tour guides. Some of them were also already at the hills to put up the markers and were waiting for us.

It took us around 40 minutes to reach the 4th hill. We can see MOF and DST HQ buildings, National Stadium, Parliment House, Istana Nurul Iman, Temburong, Limbang and also I was told Mt. Kinabalu (although I didn’t really see it this morning).

There is a triangulation station at the 4th hill. Hj Mohiddin briefly explain us regarding it, something like it is use by the survey department for land measurement. I look up in the internet and this is want I got from wiki.

Overall the trip was fun and enjoyable. I would love to join the group again for other outings. Here's one of the video I took from the hill.


On other matter, met up with a young guy by the name Syazwan at Coffee Bean, Gadong after the hiking. Gave him his present and chat with him abit.

I also went to the gym today and yesterday for my run. Will post it up tomorrow instead.
