It was a successful trip for most of us. Since it's the first time we reached Lankayan Water after several attempts, we felt happy. Will surely go to Lankayan Water again. For 2011, this was a good year end trip and I'm not planning to go for another trip again this year. So, see you all again next year.

The weather was quite cloudy in the morning but in the afternoon, it's hot. I had sunburn on my face, arms and legs. Forgot to use my sunblock as I was quite sleepy as the bite rate was not that good.
