Malaysian hiker goes to great heights in Everest before 40th birthday

The writer at the base of the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest.— JWAN HEAH

In life we go through many different phases, and at each of these phases I believe we are a different person. “Different” because our accumulated life experiences continuously shape us and drive the decisions and choices we make in life.

Up until a few years back, I took my health for granted and lived a life devoid of proper exercise, and was fuelled by a diet of instant coffee and fast food. Significant events marked a turn, and to commemorate one year of my lifestyle change, I decided that before my 40th birthday I would mark this phase of my life. I would step out of my comfort zone and do something personally remarkable, which will be etched as an achievement and personal milestone.
