-during our walk, Pojan which was at the back started to act like kid! he said he is in pain, giving up already and bla bla bla (baru jalan kejap elleh) so the others were giving him lecture and stuff.
-believe it or not, the truth is, there is a group of bikers that offered to send us to the Terminal Bas Taiping!! (drama duh mamat ni). *cerita sebenar dia si pojan troll bdk2 ni pdhal mat biker ni ckp kt pojan yg diorg nk tolong kiteorg, si faiz pon bersengkongkol., hahahahaha
