PRS Excel Training Camp : Day 2

Okay, let's see. Day two. It started off with the students being routed for marching drill during the cold and breezy morning. huff huff puff puff~!!


  But first, some warming up activity....






 Marching drill time~~~~






 After that, it's breakfast time............ Nasi Lemak!







 After breakfast, students were told to get ready and prepared for the most awaited activity of the camp, Jungle-Trekking.




Teachers gearing up too.... 




Pak Jamil, giving clear instructions of the dangers and the necessity of Jungle-Trekking.




Before we set out, let's pray for our safety first....



Yosh .... yosh... let's gooooo!!!


      
















 It took us about more than 45 minutes to reach to this waterfall spot. There, we relax for a while. Some took pictures, some were enjoying the water, and most of them are just trying to catch their breath again or mostly inspecting their shoes and lower parts of the pants for any leeches, which most of them got while on the track to the waterfall. I myself had one fat leech stuck to my shoes but it didn't get to leg and suck any blood. That was relief....















 After a while, and all the students had recovered their energy, it was time to head back down.






 Heading back down only took us about less than half and hour because we used a different route than the ones we climbed.


By the time we reached down, all the students were tired and resting while waiting for the next activity. 



Pak Jamil then briefed us of the next activities. There are a total of seven of them which is divided by two parts because of the interval of lunch and Solat Zohor. The first part covers three activity. First, MMS (as what they called it) or in my understanding, charades. It is charade, it is just that they have other names for it. Well, you guys know what charade is right? Then I guess I have no need to explain how the games plays out. 




The next two activity has something to do with water and this swimming pool. 


By the way, this is not your common over the fare full of chlorine pool water found in any places. The reason why the water is in this cooler is because it is actually water from the mountains. In a a way, it is not dirty at all. Let's just say these are purest swimming pool water you'll ever seen, not without those chlorine and other chemical fluids. It is just that the color of the water isn't crystal clear... that's all...One thing for sure was that it is cold........I mean refreshingly cold!


This is what they call Titanic, or in another meaning, sunken items. They have to go inside the pool and retrieve the sunken items from the deep beneath and marks are given to the number of the sunken items retrieved.


Ready, get set........... 


GO!!!!! 




The groups that I'm monitoring manages to retrieve 18 sunken bottles whereas the highest score was from the previous group with 20 bottles.

The next activity involves good teamwork. They are given these water banks whichever group that manages to fill it up to the top first wins. But there's always a catch. The water banks is poked with holes so if you fill the water to the level where there's hole around it, water will come gushing out. Teammates must use their hands and fingers to cover any holes that they can find to make sure no water will spill out while they are filling the water banks.




It was actually quite fun to watch them play these things but it would be much and more fun if I could join them of course... haahaha...

Then the students were let go to their tents, get cleaned up, eat lunch and do their Zohor prayer. While they're gone, the girls and I had our share of playing in the water too because I wouldn't want to miss out to play in the water too mainly for the reason that there's a side of the pool which is 5 feet deep and I like pools that have good depth so that I can submerge longer to the bottom of the pool. And the fact that the water is refreshingly cold is what makes us even tempted because of the scorching sun above which makes me all sweaty...


2pm, it was time for the second part of the activity.
Another briefing from Pak Jamil about the next four activities.


Let's get it on with our first, boat rowing competition. The team with the fastest time to go back and forth the desired location wins.





     


The next activity is called Laser Obstacle. The strings represents lasers which is needed to be avoided while doing the obstacle. Like those spy movies..... It was fun to see them doing it. Some of them are really flexible, avoiding those lasers while they glace away through the obstacles like nothing...  



 The next activity is using blowpipes to shoot dart at  shooting range score marks. This is self-explanatory right?





Now, on to the second last activity of the day, obstacles course. For those who have been to a lot of these kinds of training camps, these kinds of obstacles course is nothing new. Students will have to go to several obstacles to reach to the final destination which is the last activity of the day. It was fun to see these students having fun doing it. Yes, they're having fun. Especially the boys who like to show off their skills...



And let's begin. Here are the obstacles...


I don't know what to call this obstacle... rope climbing?


Monkey Bar, only a few manage to pull this one off.



Urrm.. Tarzan swing? Anyway, there was a slight impracticality of the obstacles as the rope was too short and the distance was too long. In then end, everyone ended up having to wet themselves of the water below....


Tyre Hole? Hahaha... 


Gate climbing activity...
After that, it is all about balancing on ropes...





And finally, to the end of the obstacle course is our last activity of the day : Flying Fox. Most of the students are all excited to do this activity even though they would have to wait for quite some time to be able to ride this thing which only lasted less than 10 seconds.









After the final activity, students are given some free time to do what they want. While waiting for Maghrib prayer and dinner to be served. Some of them (boys) including me went back to the swimming to play in the water. Yes, I know, I'm acting like a child. But what to do? I am like this maaa.....

Dinner time!!!










After dinner, it was time for another one of those motivational talk but too bad for the speaker as the students were too tired to even listen to him so, through midstream changes, he had to abandon all of his motivational talk slides and instead, play games with them which keeps them awake for a while until they started getting all lazy again.




A little chicken dance game to spice up the mood.....



...and a little creativity game to liven up the mood.... 



and a little presentation assignments to get the brain working....




...only to get the students all the more tired and yawning every second or so. So the talk had to be stopped after the presentation to avoid further dissatisfaction from the students and the teachers who are listening from the back of the room. Whom too kept on yawning ..........


 Thank you very much Mr. Ebit Irawan, it was nice to hear you talk, hello pillows and beds...........
Yup, that's it. I went straight back to sleep after the talk as per I was super sleepy too. I was supposed to wake up again at 3am to do my night shift but the other teachers were having difficulty waking me up.... as expected but suddenly I was woken up by the sound of a loud snoring next to my bed. Another teacher who snore probably as loud as I am woke me up at 4.30am. Realizing I was already late, I skipped taking a shower to freshen up and just went ahead to the camping site to monitor the students until 5.50am where I then head back to the room to sleep as the other teacher was already awake to switch with me... Thank god...........

To be continued.......
