A Long Winding Path

Perhaps life is like mount climbing... It's not easy to succeed just like when you are climbing up the mountain; on the other hand, it's easy to fail and fall just like when you are going down the mountain. You may work hard for ten years, twenty years, your whole life to get to be known for your success but the sweetness you manage to taste is just a short period. It's just like you endure so long to climb up the hill, but all you can enjoy at the peak is just a very short period...

After mount hill climbing on Monday, I'm crazing for it... Firstly, it's because we go in a small gang, so it's not that dull on the journey. Secondly, I would like to strengthen my stamina; my stamina is worse than those old people who exercise regularly. The reasons for it are I don't exercise and I have an unhealthy lifestyle (sitting in front of computer days and nights and sleeping very late).

In five minutes, we had already reached the first checkpoint without resting at any spot. The path was not steep so I could still barely endure it. We then took a rest of five minutes.

This is how the checkpoint look like

Taking some pictures while we were resting as usual :(

We then continued. But the path was no more easy; it was steep, really steep at some spots. We just climbed another few meters from the first checkpoint before my friend had finally surrendered. So we decided not to continue.

Then we climbed down walked down, ran down, whatever you call it, to the tent pavilion beside the first checkpoint to have a chit chat. I saw a man lighting up wood to cook there, then suddenly I had this thought: would this a healthier way to cook? Then I thought of a more modern way of cooking: electric. Which cooking way (lighting up wood, using gas or using electric) is the healthiest?

Place to rest

Is this a healthier way to cook?

After a thirty minutes chat there, we went down the hill and went back home...

Damn, I still couldn't conquer the hill....
