Prepping Malaysia- storing water in Klang Valley

prepper storage water Malaysia
Water is essential in any survival situation…here are some of the ways my prepping friends are storing their stash of water in Malaysia

If you are prepping in Malaysia, you need to know ways of storing water.  Those who work and live in Klang Valley especially knows water disruptions and rationing all too well. The weather, particularly the rain cycle is somewhat all messed up. On top of that, we are still cutting down trees and turning important water catchment areas into development projects. The population keeps increasing, hence the demand for clean water too. So…how do you store water as a prepper?

Mana nak beli wisel (whistle) untuk aktiviti hiking

sesat di cameron highland

Laporan Astro Awani bertarik 20 Feb 2017– wanita sesat di Gunung Irau lebih dari 40jam 

Anak saudara Wak mula bergiat dalam aktiviti hiking, maka Wak pun bertanya kawan mana nak beli wisel (orang putih cakap whistle) di Malaysia. Terbaca kes-kes orang sesat masa kegiatan hiking ala ‘outdoor’, Wak pun risau pasal anak saudara sorang ni. Ada kawan cakap beli je yang murah-murah, ada pulak yang cakap belilah yang bagus. Alah membeli, menang memakai prinsip Wak.

The North Face Escape & Evade pack?

The North Face classic pack
This is an old… perhaps classic even. I would call this The North Face Escape & Evade

Check out this The North Face Escape & Evade pack (that’s what I call it anyway). I pulled this pack out after having a chat with the folks at Malaysian custom pack maker Garrison Packs. We we talking about pack designs, copies and pack concepts. I am not for 1 to 1 copy but adopting concepts I am fine with. Here is an example of what I think would be a shared concept.

When it comes to an emergency radio, my favorite would have to be the Sony ICF B01 FM/AM radio. It is compact, has the ability to charge itself (with my help of course) and comes equipped with some features  that would certainly appeal to a prepper. Here’s a closer look at the radio.

Here is a old Gilpin fireman axe made in Cannock England (no sheath) I manage to score at a garage sale recently. I tried looking up the internet for information on the axe but could not find much information. Some sources like this indicates that the company could have been around since 1834 but when exactly this particular axe was made is still a mystery.

I got an email asking who is selling 550 made in USA paracords in Malaysia. I wrote about Paraknott who is based in Klang valley some time back. I have confirmed with Calvin of Paraknott that he does sell this useful prepping items and can make arrangement for them to be shipped via post to buyers all over Malaysia. I was visiting Calvin the other day so decided to take some pictures to show what he has.

Silky Ono hatchet- just gotta have it

Rather impressive hatchet by Silky

Yup…I finally scored a  Japanese Silky Ono axe/ hatchet. I have no clue why all of a sudden, axes and hatchets appeals to me so much. Perhaps because I am longing for that ‘bushcraft’ tool that I have been reading and watching on all the bushcraft shows on Youtube. This is not my first axe. Tried the Mora Outdoor axe and several others before. Here are some pictures.

What can we learn from the Malaysian 2014 floods?

A print-screen from The Star online- a scary way to end 2014

Its 2015 today but I can’t help but reflect on all the crazy stuff that has been hitting Malaysia in 2014. Put aside the aviation tragedies (one of which is still unfolding as I write), the floods that hit many states, especially Kelantan is possibly one of the worse many Malaysians have seen. From what I gathered from friends who responded to the floods, water came too fast too much. As prayers, help, donations and rebuilding works starts to pour into the effected states, I have to say that there is much to learn from this ‘tragedy’.
