FINALLY ! HOME SWEET HOME!! camp was kindda hell-ish but hey it was fun! At least we were cleaner than FOC camp n GL trainings because we were planta-flour-ketchup free; only a bit of mud though. And KOTA TINGGI was beautiful i tell ya. It's lik we're so close to nature..it's wasn't anything lik bck in singapore..u really breathe in oxygen n not air polluted by carbon dioxide; u see nth but plants n vegetation; u hear nth but sound of insects [n us making noises ..haha!] it was cool...Except for the fact that mutated insects seem to b everywhere. The ants dere are so big, i think they can eat Singapore ants n still feel hungry and the biggest lizard i saw was as big as a chameleon! The winner was the millipede! i tell ya! it was so big, it's about the length of ur lower arm and as thick as 3 pens tied together! the mosquitoes dere are horrendous too! Singapore mosquitoes are so small, u can't really see 'em but the mosquitoes there are tard visible; Aft they bite u, u can actually see the holes they made in ur skin...great god i only got bitten 4 times...all during the hike.
First day we gathered in sch n were divided into 4 diff grps mainly Terra, Hydra, Pryo n Aeroand i was assigned to join Terra along with Caryn, Sufri, Darren, Terrence, Lendl, Khai Ying, Charmaine, Felicia, Hui Xian, Ding Feng, Eddy n Esmine. Then we set off for m'sia! i practically slept all the way there to Kota Tinggi apart from the times we have to get down the bus to have our passports checked n change of buses. When we reached dere, have to settle down n Pitched our own tent too! I'm proud to say i think our tent looks the best cos we really pulled the strings till damn taut so our tent was less saggy. Even Caryn thinks our tent's the best too. Went for abseiling aft lunch. It was fun but crappy thing is..instead of "walking" down the wall lik wad the boys n tall girls did, mos of us girls of average height ended up sliding down because our legs not long enough to touch the wall! Our toes jus touched the wall only so we jus maintained in the abseiling position and slided down while releasing the rope. Only Sufri jumped down the wall lik wad u see in the movies; how the special unit abseil down a building. That's because he's damn tall with long legs! grrr~~ We didn't get to do rock climbing though due to time constraint...i missed rock climbing!!!
There were some team dynamics n low elements. Jeff our instructor talked to us bout team building and how as leaders we shld lead our grp that kind of thing. Next we came to this game called "Indians Jones". Nah~ it was an obstacle course. It was jus 5 simple floating platform tied together in a straight line. the competition involves 2 grps. Objective of the activity is to get as many ppl across to the opposite bank. The tricky part is balancing. The floating bridge was really unstable so mos of us fell into the muddy water below and hv to restart again. I think some of us gt bruised n scratched by the wooden platform as we tried to stay on 'em. It was fun while trying to make the other team members fall into the muddy water but it was quite argh~ when we fall into the water when we got so far. Later aft that we dragged our tired bodies to the enormous pond for rafting competition. Our grp completed the course 1st so we gt to shower 1st way b4 the other 3 grps! Well i can say that aft the Indiana Jones n Rafting competiitons Terra gt pretty bonded though we somehow disputed a bit during theraft competition..hah. Anyway, the toilet was kindda gross la! It's lik u bathe halfway u can see spiders n ants crawling ard.
Aft dinner we had a briefing from the camp chief n instructors about the hike up Mount Panti. The chief was talking halfway when suddenly fell from the ceiling n landed on the canteen floor with a "piak". It was the chameleon-sized lizard and it totally freaked all the girls out la...so gross...ew~
Went to slp aft dat. The bad part of our tent is, as nite falls, the surroundings gets cold so water condenses on the inner surface of our tent n it's damn disgusting cos u'll slping suddenly water drip on ur slping bag or ur face. At least the walls of our tent was wide enuff so we din really touched the surface. Another thing is, we really damn kiasi! we sort of showered the tent with insect repellent to prevent mosquitoes from coming into our tent. It was ahlf effective i think because caryn n i think gt bitten but Hui xian n charmaine got bitten a few times..haha
Second day...i'll continue tmr because im damn tired n sleepy now plus im sick! yes im still coughing badly due to all the cheering which probably worsened the condition of my cough...i think my voice will end up lik hong kai's one soon...BAH~
