lots of people asked me to come for this year’s camp. daryl and chiaching asked me for a few years whereas tiffany “darlie model” ling as well as ruth asked me this year. hmmm, decided to go as i can’t let all of them down. wise choice because i have learneda lot during this five days.
MYF camp was a journey of self discovery and assurance to me. remember in my last post i told you that i have 4 personalities? i have found my fourth personality here as a result. well, lt me elaborate on my personalities. 1st one: super-hyperactive sachin. this is when i will jump around and make hell lots of noise (singing ridiculous stuff is also included). this is when i am at my most creative state of mind. highly dangerous and almost impossible to stop. able to transmit my hyperactive energy generated to good use (eg. king scout test). induced when three glasses or more of very strong coffee is drunk or uncontrolled consumption of chocolate.
2nd one: hyperactive sachin (normal mode). this is me at normal days be it at school or at tuition. polite, perverted and things you see in me each day. less creative than my 1st personality and less energy is generated. highly compassionate and wants to get into things. induced when im not in other modes.
3rd one:playsafe sachin (kuailan mode). i ususally turn into this mode when i’m in charge of something. this is when i’m cool, calm and collected. very cruel when executing my task (eg.prefect and scout stuff). induced whenever i want to. compassion means nothing when imin this mode. always play by the rules so that i don’t have to answer questions on misconduct. untouchable and stands by decision.
4th one: dark sachin (hyper-emo sachin): all those crap about “i’m not emo” told by idiots are not true. i was pne pf those idiots who thinks that im not emo. sadly, all stuff that makes me emo (problems and stuff) and bottled up in a small jar somewhere in my heart. there were times when i show glimpses of emo-ing (eg. kicking flower pot during a bsaketball match…not wanting to chair an interact project even after proposing it to the board of directors…really was having a hard time then during march and april). turns out that i was running away from my emo side by concentrating on other stuff like socialising and stuff. then, during a session in MYF camp when i was deep in thought, all those stuff in the bottle just came out.
the darker side of me came out. i felt horrendous. not wanting to talk to others, just sit there motionless, extremely quiet, clearly something was wrong with me. sophia noticedit at firstand came to me but i pushed her away (not literally). later shiang june, michelleyu, kong sisters and aoife noticed it but i told them i was okay. after a few hours of swimming in a sea of emotions, i finally recovered to normal mode. then i had to assure everyone that i was okay. thanks to this camp, i know that i have to deal with my emotions and not just keep it in until it overflows. i felt so much better when i cried one of these days. so people out there, keep in touch with your emo side.
finally finished about the boring stuff. let’s talk about MYF. it was fun. i freaked out on the second day when aunty pauline came out to me and say, “so, you are the famous sachin….”. err, what am i famous for.better question, what was i infamous for? it freaked me out a bit after she left. my group is Yatta-yatta. we are thebest group because we were number eight in 3 events.888 is a lucky number for the chinese.hehe. i had so much fun until i had no voice after 4 nights. i had to communicate to winnie at the lastnight with sign language (she also lost her voice..haha…we’re like an OKU couple). but i hate the beach. it was so dirty and the water was opaque.
MYF also assured me that i have good friends. chiaching,j-cyn,glenn,sophia,michelleyu,kong sisters are people i known since primary school. they are very good friends and came to me when something is wrong with me. daryl,winnie,yvonne,aoife,alvin,alan and chee were also great. i also bonded with some people that i just know by name and never really got close to. mark,fookie,alex,alston,chen sisters,evelyn,jaron all made me feel comfortable. haha. both evelyn-s (chen and ong) shower me with a lot of attention (hehe…i’m so lucky). i also made new friends. chris and soon ern from ayertawar, melissakhoo from convent and chuansheng from nanhwa.
basically, i’m proud to say that sitawan methodist youth is very passionate about their faith. its very touching to see people so passionate in something that they really believe in. most people these days are only passionate about the football clubs they support (ManUtd sucks!!!!).
i have also learned that knocking the window of the girls room at the wee hours of the morning could really screw you inside out. i had to endue interrogation from my dorm and a number of girls after i knocked on the window of room 3. they claim that i want to do a romeo but it is not true.
i ha+ fun in the bus but i wished the bus driver would stop more often for toilet breaks. i had fever and sore throat so i bought 2 bottles of 100plus. i finished the first bottle in the bus and had to desperately go to the loo at one stage. when we reached the toilet, there’s a guy in the bathroom giving birth. he spent 10minutes doing god-knows what when i’m desperately in need to empty my bladder. sigh, i cannot hold it in anymore, i went behind the ol station and peed there. when i got back in the bus, i finished my second bottle in one sit+ng. that was plain stupid. after 30 minutes, i had to go again. fpr the next hour i had to tahan while chee,aoife and jaron were suggesting that i pee in bottles or cans.
to make things worse, tiffany questioned me about pingsin.what the..turns out that almost all of nanhwa and acs knows my not -so -secret-secret. i had to answer their interrogations while hlding my bladder.it was very taxing. i also had lots of chocolate in the bus. aoife was afraid i might jump around in the bus. that might happen if i’m not having a fever. you see, chocolate is hitty. more chocolate you eat, the hotter you feel, the more sickly you get. so, it made me worse. oh ya, i had a special connection with winnie at this camp. don’t know why but i enjoyed your company the most at this camp. i was there at her weakest moment and tried to comfort her but i failed. hehe..sorry alan for sleeping with her. i hope you won’t get angry.
it was really fun and i had no regrets of joing the camp. thank you to everyone involved with the camp. i learned a lot.
this post is 1214 words long and it took me 7 minutes to type out. this is so lame. happy new year to all readers.
