“Tokyo Bridge was built 2 years ago (RFC 2007) – from Kelantan to Elephant Mud Hole which is the main entrance to Elephant Mud Hole. However, only few people have seen the Tokyo Bridge.

(Flash back of RFC 2007)

XMen’s founder told me that passing through Tokyo Bridge is very dangerous. We need to prepare at least 2 days of food and water. Just before we left, Alyna reminded us to take walking lunch. All of us were very interested in this bridge. We were curious not just about the name of this bridge but also its 23.5 meter length.

The care in front of us suddenly stopped and we heard people laughing. I stepped out of the car and ran quickly to the end of the bridge. Mama Liz stood at the opposite side of the bridge and shouted my name. She asked me to walk through the bridge. We were discussing how did the Xmen managed to build such a wonder bridge in the rainforest.

(X-Men Extreme )

Atek was the first crossing the bridge and suddenly we heard a crack sound. For safety purposes, we moved the car to the other side and to check on the bridge. We saw that the log was eated by termites. As such, Atek had decided to add another log to support the bridge. We took our electrical chainsaw and parang to help. Some of us were carrying the log, while others were preparing lunch. We were enjoying hotdogs for lunch at the Tokyo Bridge Cafe. We asked our Japanese friend, Miyumi whether the Tokyo Bridge is similar to the on in Tokyo and she shook her head.

Everybody was happy with the hardwork and teamwork.

I always believe that there is no dead end in the mother nature and we can always find a way to overcome any obstacles.”

* Picture 1. As every car passes, Anba will start cleaning the Tokyo Bridge.

* Picture 2. Vicky as usual, the adventurous person is in charged of giving instructions on how to cross the bridge.

* Picture 3. Any mishap, he is too be blamed! Adding one log as a support to prevent any mishap.

* Picture 4. Nobody is free either on top or at the bottom of the bridge.

* Picture 5. Thomas and Atek were checking the supporting log for the bridge.

* Picture 6. First time being at the Tokyo Bridge, Rod was checking the bridge body structure.
