“What a great way to welcome ONE Championship back to Malaysia! It is an amazing opportunity for us to be once again associated with the hottest MMA event in Asia, and possibly one of the best in the world. As Triple, we stand for – fighting spirit, endurance, respect and a do-or-die attitude – so teaming up with ONE Championship was rather simple decision to make,” said Adrian Chai.

Merapoh Forest Run 2016 or better known as MFR2016 was once again successfully held in Pahang National Park, here in Sungai RelauKuala LipisPahang with the attendance of about 700 people. The number of participants who participated in this 2016 MFR has surpassed the entries from the previous year- MFR2015 which both were organized by Women’s Sports and Fitness Foundation Malaysia (WSFFM). Surely, the event has captured the hearts people, especially extreme runners, long distance professional runners, amateurs and nature lovers.



President of WSFFM Col. Associate (PA) Puan Sri to Puan Datuk Shariffa Sabrina bt Syed Akil highlighted that “the newly introduced category 12km B17 Men and Women has attracted more than 200 participants in adolescent aged between 14-17 years old. This is definitely a healthy development plus a way of educating people to treasure and appreciate nature. Not forgetting the 25km and 15km Men and Women category that was meant for the more challenging option, the newly added category of 12km B17 has given an amazing experience to the younger participants to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of Pahang National Park, which Pahang National Park is also the oldest rainforest in the world – over 132 million years to date.” In her speech before flagging off the participants. Also present was Padang Tengku State Assemblyman, YB Dato Mustapa Bin Long, Lipis MP and General Manager of Tourism Dato’ Ishak Bin Mokhtar.



Similar to last year’s edition, MFR2016 route proved as challenging and difficult with the route comprising less than 30% steep hills and 30 metres height above sea level. Pahang National Park, Sungai Relau is the second entrance to Pahang National Park and Gunung Tahan. Located 244km from the city of Kuala Lumpur, Merapoh has more than 500 limestone caves that are unique and suitable for eco-tourism destination and also known as one of the favourite destination for extreme enthusiasts, climbers and cave explorers.

due to tough route, they chose to walk :p



Based on my personal experienced in MFR2016, it is truly satisfying to be able to enjoy and admire the beautiful rainforest of Merapoh, as well as to be able to create awareness and encourage teenager and youngsters to participate in conservation of our nature.

" The Freshest Air that you will be inhale", the quote that mentioned by Puan Sri Sabrina. I will not deny that as it is sooo true! 



i can't stop taking scenic and beautiful pictures of the view of Merapoh.

we managed to complete the 12km run although it is actually for B17, please excuse us as we were the only members of the media who joined the run :p

MFR2016, is the second edition of Merapoh Forest Run that started last year which is held in the same location, was also included in Visit Pahang 2017 Tourism and Tourism Pahang Calendar. The event was in partnership with Tourism Pahang, PERHILITAN, Ministry of Youth and Sports, Ministry of Tourism and Culture Malaysia, Pahang, Tourism Malaysia Pahang, and Pertubuhan Pelindung Khazanah Alam Malaysia (PEKA Malaysia) and supported by the Committee of Tourism & Culture Pahang, Lipis District and Land and Malaysia Tourism Council (MTC).

Because we went to PHUKET!!!! 
What is it there in Phuket? There are many places to visit there plus you can shop a lot too!!

We start our trip early which is we start at 8Am Malaysia time. First we went for breakfast at a Muslim shop near our hotel.. Next we proceed to Phuket.. It is about 3 hours journey from Krabi to Phuket. 

me being the excited one early in the morning

our journey to phuket

When we arrived there, first we went to Madunan Tshirt factory Phuket for souvenir shopping. Be Aware! You might shop till you drop there! As the price is very reasonable and the tshirt quality is very good.. p/s: make sure to pay a visit there. Why don’t you go to the branded outlet? Well for me i am going for a budget travel so i do not want to spend my money that way.. Well proceed....

 
welcome to Phuket. Sawadee kaa


us at madunan with mr Madunan , the owner of Madunan Tshirt factory Phuket, p/s: Mr madunan is my friends in UiTM's uncle..

After a great moment shopping at Madunan, we went to the most beautiful Patong beach. I am sure you guys also might know or hear about Patong beach right? Patong beach was also affected due to Tsunami attack on 2004 which hits and destroy Phuket quite bad, it then rebuild and way more beautiful and scenic view..

Then, we went for island hopping to koh panyee and james bond island. Koh Panyee is a Muslim fishing village which located at an island in Phang Nga Province. Based on history it was built by indonesian fishermen before. The place is unique and there you are able to shop for local snack and souviners too . Next, we proceed to James Bond island which is about 10 minutes boat ride from koh panyee. But sadly we can’t go near to the island due to the water level dropped in evening as we went there quite late. It is so frustrating to be unable to go near it.... after James Bond island it is the time to make our way back to the main land, but surprisingly our boat got stuck and could not move as it is stuck to the sand.. Then we get off the  boat and help the boat man to push the boat to the suitable place till the water level is sufficient for the boat to move..
