Mora knife distributor in Malaysia

Mora knife distributor named on Morakniv official website

Some months back, I heard there will be a new Mora knife distributor in Malaysia. I had mixed feelings about it. Distribution of any sort of outdoor adventure gear in Malaysia has never been in favor of end user because of the multi-tiered profiteering by the distributor and re-sellers. And now  it looks like Mora knives in Malaysia will suffer the same fate.

Jungle use of Mora Eldris

A short jungle test of the Mora Eldris

So, I was given the Mora Eldris by the Mora representative when I last met him.  Despite the usual work and travel, I still manage to squeeze in an overnight jungle trip to test out the knife (and other bits of gear too!).  I am never a big fan of small (2″ cutting edge or less) or folding knives but am always open to give it a go. So, here is my take on the Mora Eldris.

Water filter for outdoor activities & camping in Malaysia

Plenty of water in the jungle but no way to be 100% sure if they are safe for consumption

A friend invited me to a jungle camping trip and hence I needed to buy a water filter for outdoor activities. I decided to visit OGM and see what they have that I can use. Turns out they have some really cool filters that I can use for both my camping trip and possible for my preppers kit as well.

Best sportswear store in Klang Valley

Sportswear store in Klang Valley
Decathlon is the biggest sportswear store in Klang Valley (and maybe Malaysia)

Decathlon at Bandar Sri Damansara is probably the best sportswear store in Klang Valley to date. I visited them recently and found them to be right on the mark for their reputation. Decathlon offers a good range of products for almost all kinds of sports imaginable (that includes diving, horse riding, hunting & some golf). Best part of all, there are heaps of stuff (cheap too) that would be great for preppers in Malaysia.

A compact voltmeter for car

A car cigarette lighter USB charger that comes equipped with a voltmeter

I wanted a voltmeter for car after hearing of my friend’s stressful episode of having his car battery fail on him. Voltmeter tells you the voltage of your car battery (before, during and after the engine runs). A mechanic told me he can get a dedicated voltmeter fixed on my dash for about RM150. Seriously?

Meeting Mora knives in Malaysia

Mora has a new guy in town and he reports directly to Sweden. Whats in the pipeline?

I got an email invitation to meet the official representative of Mora knives in Malaysia recently. Thinking it was a prank email, I had to double read the email address of the sender. It actually had a ‘@morakniv.se’ extension. That intrigue me a lot. So, a few weeks later, we met up over a cup of coffee.

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?

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.
