Last night I slept at around 8pm.... at around 4-5am, I woke up. The camp was crowded..... I couldnot sleep well... the guy beside me also cannot sleep well.. It was raining throughout the night. water keep dropping on his sleeping bag making it wet.... T_T.... not much space to sleep well ... environment surrounding me is dark and wet
at around 6am... I decided to wake up and I wrote this notes at around 6.20am... It was still raining.
It was cold but my NorthFace jacket kept me warm throughout the whole night ^^

Getting ready and then start hiking to the peak at around 9.00 am... reach the peak at 10am (1 hour journey - ^fast^-) and then loitered at peak till 12 pm...

there are 2 peak at Gunung Liang. where first peak were called West Peak, then another were East Peak... haha.
time to descend from peak back to camp was 40 minutes.
-cooked lunch at the camp,
- start to descend back at around 3pm,
it took me  1hour 30minutes to reach the river/ water fall ....
again, it rain heavily..... the forest were so dense until I hardly feel the rain water.... but as I moving, it get less dense and here's lot of water dropping on me.... the forest floor were all wet and muddy... yeah !!

another 1hour 30minutes to reach the water dam.
another 1 hour to reach the Mosque - final place where Bus was waiting for me... haha

Had to wait for others to reach... start departing back at around 10pm... stop by at Tapah again to have KFC for dinner but it closed... so had to eat normal food. haha
