Words from Hiker - Venus

We only live once. But if we live well, once is long enough.

This April, my very good friend passed away from late-stage colorectal cancer. He was strong, healthy and athletic, and no one could have foreseen his premature departure.

I asked Alan of Hong Kong Cancer Information: Where do they go? How do you handle the sadness when you see your peers depart this world?

He said: They all turn into stars, watching you from the sky, becoming your guarding angels.

If there is anything I have learnt throughout these years, it is to seize the day and enjoy every moment of life.

This August, I'll be seizing the day by taking on something I could never have imagined. I will be in Kazakhstan for a 10-day mountaineering trip - summiting the Ong Teng Cheong & Ong Siew May peaks - each 4,800 & 4,500 meters tall.

I'm doing it because I want to remind myself how lucky I am and how beautiful our mother nature is.

I'm doing it because I want to show my two girls their mum doesn't live for work. Mum works for a living and is a lifelong explorer.

I'm doing it because I want to raise funds for cancer patients who go through the same ordeal as my friend; to encourage them to stay active and be positive, even enjoy their final moments of life.

All monies raised will go to CancerInformation for their support of cancer patients.

I'm not sure whether I can succeed in summiting the mountain peaks, but I'm still doing it because life is full of trials and failures.

And I know you will be with me. The stars will guide me.
