Explore Antarctica Expedition: Crossing of the Antarctica Continent
In November 2005, another history will be made by a team of 2 Malaysians
for embarking on a journey to cross Antarctica. Many have reached the
South Pole, but it is an achievement that can be attained with wealth
and stamina less than those who have walked across the continent. This
time around, Dr. M Kamaruddin Md Isa and Encik Suhardi Alias will traverse
the foreign land in the continuation of 'Malaysia Boleh' spirit.
A Tribute to Tun Dr. Mahathir
"One the reasons for crossing the Antarctic continent is to
pay a tribute to Tun Dr. Mahathir, who retired in October 2003. A few
months before, Dr. Mahathir has openly challenged the countrymen to
cross the continent by foot after the congratulating the nation's marathon
swimmer, Abdul Malik Mydin back in May 2003. And I am here to do it."
