All I can say is that my post-Aussie days are really hectic! The week started on 26th September 2011; the school organized Additional Sports spanning from Monday till Friday – and I’ve been entrusted to be the officer of Shot Put (‘Lontar Peluru’) together with Ustaz Shuib and also for sprints and relay along with other colleagues. With the unpredictable sweltering-and-suddenly-raining weather, it was undeniably exhausting yet one has to execute the tasks entrusted, eh?
On the weekend 30th September & 1st October 2011 (Friday and Saturday), a few selected colleagues and I went to The Woods Resort with the kids for Annual Boot Camp. I have to admit that it was REALLY TIRING to be on duty on the field for the past 5 days and then without rest, whisked to the Boot Camp since I was one of the facilitators. But, it was all worthy! Seeing the excited faces of the kids when they learned that I would be joining them and as well as having great colleagues who joined us, the activities were fun lot!
The first activity was Flying Fox. At first, Kak Aireen and I planned to went up but due to some ‘spontaneous drama’ (hehehe), I went up alone. Kinda scared at first because the iron stair was SO TALL but of course I’ve to put brave facade as my pupils were watching me! Had to set some example, aite? It was an ethereal feeling whisked from above to below via flying fox! Yeeha!
Irony? Hahahaha; LOL!
On that night, we went for Nightwalking. The crew of The Woods Resorts supervised us and facilitated us into the jungle. The kids were excited and of course a great experience for them. Tranquil for the mind especially when you listened to the waterfall gushing on the rocks in the silence of the darkness. But with 80 kids – it’s IMPOSSIBLE to have a quiet scene!
Around 10 P.M., we all gathered in the hall and had Karaoke session. Hahahhaa, like usual the teachers crooned – thanks to GPK Kokurikulum for understanding how much we needed sense of entertainment after enslaving ourselves! Hahahha, I didn’t miss the chance and utilized the karaoke as much as I could, too! “Sonata Musim Salju” (Hazami); “Tiada Lagi” (Amy Search) ………….till 1 A.M. Hehehehe (,”)!
The next day as early as 5 A.M., the boys were all woken up. Since Ustaz Tarmizi (Camp Commander) had to go back as he had some J-QAF courses and Cikgu Rosmainy went back, too; so only Cikgu Khairul Muzammir, Cikgu Fridaus and I were left to take care of the boys. With Cikgu Fridaus as the Imam, we performed Subuh prayer at the hall (Cikgu Khairul had to go back due to personal commitment) – the girls were late and penalized during Aerobic session.
After Aerobic and breakfast, the kids prepared to enter the woods for Jungle-Trekking. It was amazing! Although tiring but we had so much fun and experience savouring the lush greeneries of Malaysian Tropical Jungle and Nature. Afert that, we went to River Trailing where we walked against the river current. It was AMAZING! Although the rocks were slippery and wet and I’ve to say I fell few times and my knee knocked the rocks because I brought along my camera for snapshots, it was all worthy! And the icing of the cake was the waterfall! We all were so excited that we all swam and savouring the cold waterfall! Subhanallah!

We arrived at the camp around 12.20 P.M. Had luncheon and the kids boarded the buses back to school while I drove back home. All in all, it was a great experience with the kids and my colleagues!
