Of Buying Coffee for the French Spiderman...
Sunday, September 13, 2009

It was on a Thursday evening when a colleague of mine casually asked, "Eh, Cheah, come earlier to work tomorrow. We're going to meet the French Spiderman." Apparently, the said colleague had always admired the exploits of the French daredevil, even before his recent stunt over at our Menara Kembar barely a month ago. Having seen his plight after being caught, he contacted the guy to express his gratitude, and to ask for a chat over a cup of coffee, (with recompense).

Read about his climb
here!

     Strangely enough, Robert Alain called back, to say "Why not?". Knowing that I had a weblog, he graciously invited me to follow.
 
     Being the opportunist I am, I agreed, and packed a camera along.

     Having been featured on the headlines of the dailies only a few days earlier, it was no wonder that when he arrived at Dome, KLCC, where JT and I were waiting, a curious crowd of onlookers began to hover around the edges.





Speaking to the man who climbed to the top of the Twin Towers with his bare hands.

     Alain Roberts was rather down to earth about the whole business, and was possesed of a self-deprecating demeanour. We spoke of how he started, his inspirations, and of the crevices in which he dug his fingers in to make the climb had become smaller over the years.

    After the informal coffee session, I picked up the tab, and we went back to work.



Many thanks to JT, for the invitation.

     Its not every day that one gets to buy coffee for the French Spiderman.

     A very interesting Friday morning, indeed.
