Oh yes, it is heavy rain in Luyang Sabah now. The interesting fact is, it happens right in the middle of the day, like at 12:30pm just now.
AND IT IS STILL RAINING NOW at 3:00pm!!! I wish I can go RC Truck Mudding now. It will be really fun.
just a sneak peak here … 1 picture of my last outing.
I have a passionate hobby if you do not know yet. That is of course my craziness to any radio control stuffs out there. Specifically to this radio control cars, trucks and buggy.
It has many types from nitro powered engine cars, trucks or buggy to the recent craze Electric powered RC. In my possession alone, I have like 2 nitro powered truggy, of which a combination of the shorter buggy and the long truck style. I have one 1/10 nitro RC car and one as the spare. One champion scale truck, RC crawler with full articulation, winch, spare tire and even a roof rack to customize its look.
But my current craze is at the Electric Powered stadium truck, buggy and shortcourse truck. I really love the simplicity of maintaining the electric stuffs. No oily hand. No pollution and noise from the nitro powered truck ones; And guess what? They all need cables of so many types to tied things on the chassis!!!
I wish I have a picture now to share with you guys.. but that can wait for the next update. Tired and sleepy now
As always, my passion with my rc truck and new found hobby, photography, must come into one. So here is a couple only just for this blog.
Need double clicks to get the bigger picture. Nice or not?
It is that time of month, the urge to disturb my radio control crawler truck! AGAIN!!
As you can see, working on a clean table which originally *still* for dinner time usage, it is definitely a NO-NO for my wife. Haha. I should have something underneath that can at least covered the table from all the truck’s dirt. Furthermore to that, you need something to capture the small screws if they’re dropped accidentally. Anything that could prevent from all the scratches, is a YES-YES to my wife.

Yeah, Mission accomplished! I did it. It’s about my Brunei trip of course
It was almost a 9 hours onroad trip to Brunei (and back to KK too – gosh!) and I am still can feel the feeling inside the van. Anyway, it was my first time so was very excited to be there. Since this trip is specifically for rock crawling competition, I did not really pay attention to the whole scenery there. It was raining anyway. But I tell you this, not so many of those metal buildings around here but good enough for luxury living. I never expected it anyway, so yeah, good enough.
Do not let the view fools you, most people living here are very rich people. At least double whatever you are earning back in Malaysia. Friendly people, especially the host and organizer of our competition. We stayed at Jubilee Hotel by the way, in the executive suite!!! Best!!
Anyway, about my radio controlled rock crawling hobby, well I achieved my target, to be at least top three in the final result. So I got Second Place in the 1.9 Scale class category and believe it or not, I am still not, I was awarded the runner-up too in the “beautiful truck” competition. Not bad at all, you know!!!
Pictures you asked?? Not yet. Will do later ok. I promised
Did I mentioned here that I’ll be going to Brunei this weekend for my RC crawling competition? I didn’t??? I must be very busy with my crawler that it slipped my mind to announce it here, hahahaaha.
By this time, I will be in Brunei or maybe on the way to Brunei and guys, please wish me luck. I hope to bring back something as my son Josh says ” Papa bring back the big trophy ok” I guess he meant the 1st prize right? Hearing him says that makes me more excited and look forward to this competition.
Ok I’m ready to crawl and hopefully everything goes well. Now, where’s my julbo sunglasses I need it to shed my eyes from the sun
Wish me luck guys!!!
