Back from Secondary 4 Camp 2007
I think the most memorable part of the camp lies in the excruciating pain and agony in not blogging. I am officially certified blog-addicted. However, as the days past, I slowly forget about my readership numbers and so on, and go into my deep slumber. wait. Slumber? ITS A CAMP!
More like a fun yet slack camp. One of the best combination ever. If they managed to pack the activities together and be on a tighter schedule, this 5 days camp can easily become a 3 days camp. Not that I am complaining. The only disadvantage lies in me not able to touch my lovely "wife" for 5 entire days. And here i am, blogging with a slight dizzy head. Probably I havent touch my computer for too long a time!
I think more than half the time is wasted on travelling, which I travelled from pahang to perak in IPOH. It was by train at first, then we switched to coaches. We slept in caves, hotels, motels and MOST OF THE TIME, on the BUS!
It was a hell of time carrying out the 5 main activities - Abseiling, Rock climbing(real rocks, mind you), Canyoning, Caving and rapid water rafting.
They are supposed to be high risked activites, but I DO trust all of the instructors in ensuring my safety. I had injuries on my hands from the sharp stones of rock climbing, experienced the abseiling down the water fall, smelt the smelly bat rats in caving, and finally experienced the thrills of rapid water rafting with our teacher.
I thought over what Alf mentioned about the healthy relationship between teachers and students. I believe it is these camps and the candidness of our teachers that allows us to treat our teacher as friends. Schools have much to learn from Hwachong in this aspect.
I was at the lan shop, giving me a nice surprise was my friend's entry. To wish me a happy birthday, she took A LOT OF effort to find that cake. I am glad that my blog readers responded to her entry.
It had been a tiring week, I will continue to work hard for my blog, my studies and all. Its back to reality again people.
