For the statement of "By comparison, the trek up Mount Kinabalu was like a walk in the park, she pointed out", I must apologize and explain further here.
I think I was misunderstood the question of Yeh Ern when he was asking me if compared to Mt. Kinabalu. The correct meaning should be: to EBC, it takes 2 weeks, to KK, it takes 2 days; this is the comparison I meant, the duration not the difficulty level.
So sorry about that and I don't mean to offend Mt. KK and my great outdoorers.
