picnic up Everest

Why are there so many people climbing Mount Everest these days?

Cos the ice is melting that's why! Not so cold anymore right? Can bring your whole family go up there picnic right?

And now Ken Noguchi has to clean up after your stinking arses.

As if the ice melting as a result of world climate is not bad enough, now you gotta leave nasi lemak wrapper up there lah?

Heh, ok fine. So Japanese and Koreans make up the most number of mountaineers heading up Everest.

Ken has so far managed 5 cleaning expeditions up Everest, and has brought back 9000 freaking kilograms of rubbish. There's more where that came from. Much more.


I've never gone up any mountain. Except Genting. I may not want to scale Everest or Kinabalu or any other mountains, but I want my children to be able to do so, should they want to, and they should be able to enjoy the mountain at its purest form. Minus nasi lemak wrapper and all.

Be a responsible climber lah aiyo.
