2nd day.... water rafting at padas, almost dead at water..

Today is an very exciting day for me. Because finally i got change to play water rafting !! wahaha..

We wake up at 7am and start to prepare. I can tell you that we all are "pig" which like to stick with our bed.haha.... Not much choice for our breakfast, the hostel only provide milo, coffee and maggie mee only.hehe. Budget hostel ma, what you expect wo.
So, we took around 2 hour journey from kota kinabalu city to train station. Sorry that I forget what name of the train station.hehe.
Very nice weather for today. Very suitable for water rafting. I like the cloud of the sky, it just so real and clear :D , the train only will arrived at 12pm.
dang dang dang....the train~ What you expect? KTM? LRT? such thing la. Is a open air train~special rite? You have to prepare your ass to be burn by the sun ~ As a sunny boy, i decide to sit behind the train.
Weak people(high class people) sit inside the train. hahaha... hot hot !!!!!!! this journey take around
40 min. And this train only run in 30km/s. Slow than motorcycle =.=|||
After lunch, we need to prepare ourself. Before water ralfting, the instructor will explain all the emergency or thing to aware when water rafting. Ya.... we have to sign a "die live contract" in case anything happen. No sign No water rafting =.=|||

The adrenaline rush excursion covers a distance of 9km of this rather muddy 200 km river that holds 7 exciting and tough rapids!

These rapid carries amusing names such as Merry-Go-Round Rapid, Break Point Rapid, Scooby Doo Rapid, Cobra Rapid, Curve Rapid, Lambada Rapid and Head Hunter Rapid. Each rapid will give you the feel of the motion as what the name means.

Saw the men doing a funny emotion (S Shape), he call "ming", he is our guide. A very funny guy and bring us a lots of fun, we call him "ting lou"/Mad guy. How mad? Later i tell you~

So early the journey, we all required fall down from the boat by ourself to test on the rapid of the river. Be honestly, no matter how good that you can swim, but u cannot fight against the rapid !!! It just too strong, the water even can cover your head...... i never been so scare and excited before.
Ming as a commander and we are the pirates ~hahaha... we cannot stop padding ! The more rapid the river against us, we have to continue padding and fight it !! The most scary part is we meet up the most stronger rapid, we call it "washing machine"(whirlpool )!! I dont know how to describe it, just like you will be twister when u hit it. You can find some video from youtube.

Our boat been fall down after when meet the "washing machine". Chee wang and me had been rapid from away from the boat/team. Lucky save by other boat in front few meter. Else i think i had been rapid to sarawak.

we also do attack other boat, and push other pirate into the water bad of us~ahaha, but syiok~~~
