28 of January 2012 - I received a birthday presents I shall never forget. My 30th birthday, I am requested to plot a race route for YAM TUAN ANTAH Challenge 2012. It consist of map reading and the usage of GPS. An adventure race that require a runner to run through a mountainous course. The route itself hold many stories. About a founder of Negeri Sembilan in his quest to open new land. I will write on the stories on my next post. Using my skill in topography, the work is done in 4 stages. And the final stage happen on my birthday. Datuk Khalid Yunus from Persatuan Kembara Negara(former Timbalan Menteri Penerangan) has made an appearance to witness the final stage of the route setup. He wishes me birthday and sign in my map projection book. He wrote "Only those who can endure difficulties and obstacles can be successful in life"
The way I see it. There is no easy life for people like me. That is why, people like me will be the best of the best in the future.
Thank you Datuk... For more info on what I am doing, click MAP PROJECTION

Happy 30th birthday to me
