pdated 26/7/08: Pole dancing in Labis (6 pics)
Kembara Mahkota, Day 2. I spent two years in Muar and one
in JB in pursuit of academic something. But I've never seen Johor as intimately as I've been seeing it the last two days of this
Kembara Mahkota, an annual state tour on wheels led by the Tengku Mahkota Johor.
It was raining heavily when we left the police academy in Bakri, Muar at 7.30 this morning. After the 200-odd km and countless of stops yesterday, the fingers of my left hand have lost their sensation. The clutch of the Harley is not my cup of tea (yet).
About 70 bikes and a convoy of four-wheelers left this morning. I forgot how cold it could be to ride in the rain without a raincoat.
I will be writing more about the experience for the Tell magazine. Snapped over 400 pics in the two days, most of them of poor quality. The one on the right with the roof of an old temple in the background, was taken in Labis, where I met young YB Chua Tee Yong. The lads in the picture are attempting to reach the top of the pole, which has been applied with margarine to make it more slippery for the competing teams.
