Isn't it interesting how an upcoming birthday could trigger so much anxiety for someone?

Well at least for me. Looking back, I have indeed been putting off plenty of things. Especially the pursuit of adventures. After getting a taste of high altitude in Indonesia and Sabah in the past 2 months, I knew this is something that I've been craving for.

So next stop? Nepal!

Fitness wise, there's still room for improvement. I hiked with a 28kg load yesterday but that kinda took a toll due to weight displacement. The 20kg plate is bigger than my bag, thus causing a lopsided deformity. This in turn, affected one side of my back. Not exactly a walk in the park when my back is screaming for help.

Need to do something about it if I want to continue training with the same load..
