The brave ones
The braver one
Breathtaking sunset, the last time I saw a sunset from a mountain was
when I was still in 3rd year high school
Early sleeping time
While others found their fancy with some horror-story-telling time
couple it with drinking session while the cold wind blows
and of course, it's a good time to get emotional alone inside your tent :)
Glad our tents are still intact in the morning despite those heavy wind blows during the night
Preparing our morning boodle-fight
... and there was no photo, not one photo was captured during our dinner nor during the breakfast. Hungry mammals!
