buy a metre off everest!

Monday, December 17th, 2007

last night’s Marmot Mountain Festival was a blast! thank you, to those who came, and to those who were there with me in your thoughts =)

a bit of advertising here (this is my job, afterall) – if you’re wondering what to get your boyfriend/girlfriend/sister/parents/brother/cute colleague for christmas this year, why not buy them a metre off everest?

To raise funds for its Everest expedition, the Singapore Women’s Everest Tea is letting you adopt 8,850m of its climb up on eBay Singapore. As an individual, you may wish to adopt a metre off our store on eBay, and literally get a taste of Everest! We are also offering attractive sponsorship packages to interested corporate sponsors who may buy lots of 100m for SGD15 per metre.

When you adopt a metre, you will receive an Adoption Certificate in addition to these special treats from us!

sigh

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

He sighed. It was a long sigh, weary and worldly-wise. The kind of sigh you could picture God heaving after six days of hard work and looking forward to some serious cosmic R&R, only to be handed a report by an angel concerning a problem with someone eating an apple.

am back from Annapurna Basecamp, where i saw what i wanted to see, learnt what i wanted to know, and brought back more than what i expected to carry.

my recent read of The Climb by Anatoli Boukreev came full circle when i saw where he rests now at the foot of Annapurna, remembered by many. as i had my moment of silence before his resting place, i read his quote carved on the stone:

Mountains are not Stadiums where I satisfy my ambitions to achieve,
they are cathedrals where I practise my religion
.”

although i have a different take on mountains and mountaineering, i cannot help but admire this man’s passion which saw him through life – and death.
