With the help of the Human Resource Manager, Mr Robert Yong, 44 of the willing staffs came to donate their blood.

We arrived Semenyih town around 7am for breakfast before starting climbing the Broga Hill at around 7.50am. The hike took us around an hour for around 1.7km to reach the peak of Broga Hill at 400m height. There are beautiful scenaries and some challenging climb spots. We were lucky because there wasn't raining last night otherwise it would be very slippery. There were quite heavy crowd for narrow tracking path but all of us took our turn slowly. We should have started our journey earlier as we missed the sunrise. We could also extend our journey to higher peak, Tok Wan which is another 3.9km away. But we opted to go down as the delicious "Ikan Bakar" was waiting for us. The trip ended with at Restaurant Jati nearby for our early organic "Ikan Bakar" lunch before heading home. The following are some of the photos taken during the trip:

Many thanks to the organizer, Leo Club of KL Unity particularly President Leo Tan Eong Xien and his team for making this trip a success. Job's well done.
