Camp ;)

Saturday, June 7, 2008

Yay! Wilson finally uploaded the camp pictures! We were told to break his bones if he doesn't upload them by tonight. But I bet I saw more pictures! Hmm maybe he hasn't uploaded them yet. so.. MORE TO COME! LOL. And today we had World Play Day in church too :) I was suppose to chaperon this special need kid with mild autism, but he didn't show up so I helped Phoebe. and it's kind of like the last day before Adrienne leaves KL and heads for Sarawak. I shall miss you Adrienne! Awaiting your return.

Me & Adrienne :P

Camp was awesome.
(Pictures are up for grabs campers!)

IN THE BUS :) haha random apple there xD

At the first few minutes of camp, we were asked to look under our chairs, and see who had a paper with a star. And i got the paper with the star. So we had to say 5 things about ourselves, that no one knows. I've been in the church all my life, I bet they would know every single thing about me. 5 people came out (including me). So when it was my turn, I said almost everything about me. And they all were like "WE KNOW!". But at the end, they got tired of seeing me so they just faked and said they didn't know. HAHA! Look @ my shoulders, I was tensed.

I loved the activities!

We were split into 5 teams. Rephaiah (MINE!), Hattush, Pasach, Ozem & Mishma.
We had MetaRace ONCE they finished all the announcements and rules.
MetaRace had 5 different activities. After we complete the activity we collect the hint from the counselor in charge and move on to the next place.

Our first was to watch this video and answer at least 3 questions correct. We were the first to reach, and finished it successfully.

That's me trying to convince committee Ivan that there are enough balloons on his body in the 1st pic. 2nd picture, is Hattush & Rephaiah running to the finish line! We're sticking (i forgot how many) balloons on a team member (which unfortunately was Andrew!). LOL Rachel said he looked like he had boobs O.O

We were suppose to build a 25-feet tall monument in the 3rd activity with only STRAWS. No tape, no glue. Ours only made it to 20-feet tall, but Uncle (or should I say, Counselor) Jacky SHOWED MERCY and let us go :)

The 4th was to send a team member for a tasting game. Rachel from our group was sent in with some others from the other groups. The counselors purposely gave them dark chocolate (99% cocoa) to make their tongues numb so that they can't taste the rest xD. That's Adrienne in the picture from the Pasach group.

That's Pasach & Ozem in the pictures. We had to use this huge banner and scoop water into it and it'll flow in the bucket in the 5th activity. HAHA! Something unfortunate happened. The 1st tank of water wasn't enough so Bryan went to take more water and came back with water mixed with thiner. We didn't know till, Ivan came and announced it. Andrew and Jon KK used their mouths. OUCH. Yeah so our hands/mouths felt pretty weird after that.

On the 3rd day, we played Capture The Flag. It was very fun, but it was so sunny it spoiled our mood. Rephaiah's location was RIGHT UNDER THE SUN while the other groups locations which had shades. ARGH.

That's Ruth from Ozem, trying to get her flag, but as you can see she's going the wrong way. OKAY, a team member has to be blindfolded and another team member leads the blindfolded guy out to the battlefield to take back their own group flag, and another group's flag. If all flags are taken, we have to be aggressive and steal other group's flags by going in their territory. If they tag us by taking our specific coloured strings from us.. we're then their prisoners and our own team sends out a doctor.

These pictures are from the game, The Legend of Porampo. Which was on the 2nd day.
The tale tells of this Caucasian businessman in the olden days, who had this successful company in trading stuff @ Melaka. Then one day his warehouse got burnt and he went wild&crazy, so he changed his name to Porampo (in ancient Malay language, the Bloody Swordfish) and became a rebellious pirate. He craved for money and if no one listens to him, he will draw his sword through the person's heart and slowly enjoy seeing the life drain out of the person's eyes (quoted from the video!). Then one day, he went missing. No one knows what happened to him. And so.. it was OUR job to find out.

At the end, Pasach won! haha. Wilson & Shan Berg made a mistake in hiding different hints in the same place. So we couldn't find our 7th hint. And that's what made us slow. We were last, but we still enjoyed the game. We learn from our mistakes. IT WAS SO HARD AND MIND-BOGGLING!! We took 6-7 hours to complete the whole game.

the JP Sessions (Josh Presley sessions, he's the camp speaker from US) were okay. He talked really fast though but I understood him. Josh is a very funny guy :D

We were given time to create our beautiful group flags. We came out with this.

Other flags (Mishma & Ozem's flags weren't taken):

THE FOOD WAS GREAT. It couldn't have been any better.
We had different varieties of food everyday. then at night we had supper which we supplied ourselves with, CUP NOODLES

The Sarasota Baptist Church also came to visit us from the US! we sang songs and really enjoyed ourselves.

We had our own family groups (groups of us with almost the same age). Counselor See Kay was our group counselor. She's been seeing some of us grow in church since we were born (she's 20 something now) and she let out so many embarrassing stuff about us while we were young in our family group gatherings.

HAHA. There was this random moment where they were all playing with my hair, and suddenly Wilson (counselor Wilson!) came and played with my hair too. Then he posed for Jon KK's camera phone, and he ended up showing his 'feminine' side.


the 1st picture is us, well acting silly. and the 2nd is.. EVERYONE! Rephaiah's flag is so clear.

Gideon ALWAYS playing his PSP (not a camper, only followed his mum Counselor Daniella)


Us in the bus, on our way home :( Jon KK, you and Shawn burped so much the whole bus stinked!! Haha but thanks for sharing your sparkling wine/snacks with us.

The girl who scolded you-know-who!

Shawn, the beet-boxer!

CJ, the youngest camper :)


Shawn & Peter Ashraf (Peter's the most insprational camper in camp!)

Kelly Kok! (Best female camper this year!)

Kenneth & Shan Berg (Kenneth is the best male camper this year)



I miss camp so much now. Tomorrow's the last day of our 2-week school holiday. I feel so sad and emo-ish. LOL.
