Turbinectomy

He said it is one of the best options other than painful surgery to repair my bended nasal septum. OK, anything less painful is always a good option. 
The surgery was done only 4 days after SAC. I was admitted in 3rd class ward one day earlier for the doctors to run a few test on me. I think I was the youngest patient in the ward at that time.

Sabah Adventure Challenge 2014

Day T-2 I went to KK a day before the registration. Earlier plan to come with Bandit but he has work commitment and had to cancel the trip. Too bad he missed out all the fun.

Later that night, I went out for dinner with OP Jibui and his colleagues. Then OP Syamdun join us. I haven't meet him for so many year. Actually, he's living in Ranau not far from Poring.
Day T-1 The next day, OP Stupe, his wife and his friend picked me up from the hostel and we went to Sutera Harbour for the registration and race briefing. I met many…
