Editor’s Note

Having joined SORR 2014 (Sungai Besi, KL) and SORR 2016 (Sungai Menyala, Negeri Sembilan), it is with much sadness that I will be missing out on this year’s 5th installment of SORR which promises to be another fun-filled extravaganza for nature lovers.

Nevertheless, I wish all the Participants a wonderful and safe outing in Penang. 

I recommend that you read my previous blog on trail running if you are looking for some useful tips or to put you in the right frame of mind before you embark on what will be an amazing adventure.


🎵Nature’s Song

It was a double celebration because not only did the media and friends of PEKA able to witness the launch of SORR 2017, but we were also entertained by the launching of PEKA Malaysia official song, entitled “Khazanah Alam” which was composed by Bob AF and performed by the melodious Cempaka School students 😍

Your nosy reporter asked Puan Sri Shariffa (PEKA President), “Why Target For Participants is now only 1,000 compared to last year’s 2,000 Participants​?”… 

“Are the beaches normally opened to the Public?”…



This year, we will be planting Merambong Trees by the beach side for the turtles! (FYI, Merambong Trees provides a suitable temperature for turtle to lay male eggs)
