Malaysia Everest

malaysia_everest.jpgRight before I left for my visit to Sweden and Denmark, I showed up bleary-eyed and met Muhamad Muqharabbin Mokhtarrudin. Better known, thankfully, as Qobin, and as “the youngest Muslim, the youngest SE Asian, and the youngest Malaysian” to climb Mount Everest (During our interview I thought he was the youngest man period, sorry for the confusion). I got to him just in time before he officially launched on his bike and run across the U.S. before he continues on across 24 additional countries. He is an amazing guy and definitely exudes Malaysia‘s attitude of racial diversity, which is part of his mission on this trip.

Be sure to check out the video with some great photography of Qobin at the summit of Mount Everest. After our, all too brief, interview, he asked me if I had ever been to Malaysia. After I told him about my visit, he asked me if I would be up for climbing the highest peak in Malaysia. Petrified and confused I answered, “Heck yeah!” Until I have my own adventure, check out this video.

Remember, all of our videos require Quick Time 7.0 for viewing. It takes just a few minutes to download and it’s worth it.
