The past 3 days (20/12/2006)-(22/12/206) I was in a camp. A camp that will mark the end of my SPLship, the camp that would turn the
We will never forget the panic frenzy the 8 of us were in the day before. let me show you part of the conversation we had:
COMEBACK says: (9:50:21 PM)OH MY BLOODY FUCK
KANASAI ! GROUP B GOT NO STRONG TORCH! GET LOST IN FOREST ARH says: (9:50:23 PM)what
DOMINICCOMEBACK says: (9:50:27 PM)I GOT NO SOLID FUEL
-dom / ceilsuz- reminisce . says: (9:50:30 PM)wtf"
Its quite funny, when we recall upon it.
The first day we started in school, reaching the school an hour before the camp (we admit that we are quite kiasu), making sure all our equipments are present. I settled my first aid kit issue, and off we go, to fall in. The atmosphere was rather tense and we were all scared. We were very prepared to be under physical torture in this camp, so the first 100+ push ups were seriously peanuts to us. Then, our next programme was "short pt" (the inverted commas are there for a good cause). At the start, we were starting at a too fast speed, which eventually led to many people lagging behind. It is interesting to note that the eventual 4 leaders of the run was "shuyang, dominic, william and I" I guess the 3 years of lion dance helped ( a tad bit)
After which, we had some good laugh over our crappy presentation, and peiyit's amazing mugging skill.(he was basically ranting stuff that we all didnt know about.)
I will never ever forget the pioneering shit. Seriously, i stood by with my KISS (keep it simple, stupid) theory and we build a pathethically small catapult, while the other group built a humongous trebuchet. It was an hilarious sight. We lost of course, we do not even have a launching pad... (the other group didnt do very well either.)
We went through some SRIT . I am starting to dislike SRIT now, its so bo liao, but it seems to be an inseperable thing with Ventures. They seems to love it. Especially the pumping part.
In the night, we had some sewing activity, i had my first sewing session (which i did a rather good job, i felt) which we all failed.
When it comes to the hike, we were singing and talking cock. All in all, the morale was quite high, until the part when dominic got caught, and it took us more than 300m to find that out. We were seriously very very shag at the point of time. With some one who rarely spew vulgarities saying
" Oh is it the fucking blue lorry? Oh no, i see the fucking white lorry with the fucking white shirt man, which is fucking near us, so let us fucking get over it" our legs are on the verge of breaking, while my feet were on the verge of spliting, with my blister burst. I can feel the juice coming out of my feet.
And weipin and guodan fell out of the camp, due to spraint ankles. Leaving the 6 of us still in this camp.
We finally reached the school, where we had some barbeque (i wouldnt say backwoodsman)
Thats when i drew all my courage to grab a slimy frog, held it at its crotch, and smashed its head on the ground. The first few times, didnt knock it unconcsious, but the last time made it spew blood. All OVER MY BLOODY SHIRT (LITERALLY).
Dominic and william skinned the unconcsious (not dead) frog.
We had a nice dinner and we went off to do our traps. Im o sorry i lost it at shuyang, I also didnt know what I was doing at that point of time. Shiyang turned up, disturbed me totally, im so sorry.
Anyway our trap was so simple (my K.I.S.S. theory), yet it worked this time, with the leaders saying the concept is there. eh logical thinking, (maybe i had the thinking of a caveman).
The second day started with a quite hiong PT, and william fell out. Then it came a point where we broke down. But at least, now i do know how to pack my stuff more efficiently, i guess we were at fault that time, its just that the tiredness wore out not only our body, but our brain too.
We went through more SRIT.
As a conclusion I would just say VMC is a test of endurance limit, and we didnt held on, most likely due to the lack of manpower. 5 out of ten, who can maintain their smile...
