Confucius says a journey of a thousand mile starts with a single step. Our journey of a thousand kilometers (well almost) started with the question – can we drive all the way from KL to Kota Bahru and return on the same day?
Why Kota Bahru? Last year, a buddy of ours was diagnosed with cancer and he went back to his hometown in Kota Bahru for treatment. Ever since then, we have been communicating via email and phone. Last Friday we got some photos from him and frankly speaking, he looked in a bad shape. Somehow deep down, we knew we need to see him face to face at least once to provide the moral support.
