Pentarafan Pengakap Raja 2008. this is the ultimate camp for teenage scouts. they have gained knowledge throughout their secondary school years (its more if they started since primary school) and are expected to apply all these skills in this camp. i passed last year. in order to pass my probation, i had to complete my service to the state. i went with justin who drove his “canggih” toyota corolla with ang as his co-driver and hoesiang to complete the fearful foursome. weijian and yipork (no kidding, weijian actually fetched a person!!!). justin’s car is “canggih” because he has many switches that controls the horn and stuff. we can even hear nitrous-oxide-purges IN the car. that’s because his brake pump ‘bocor’ so air can be pumped out. scary, huh??
“who here has the most ‘A’s in SPM???!!!”
justin and ang pointed at me. crap. i’m officially the ‘ketua pembantu’. it’s not really an honour to lead your fellow king scouts and other junior scouts in perak for this camp. given the ‘honour’ means you cannot sleep at night because you have to make sure everyone does their duty. furthermore if anything happens while the higher authorities sleep at night, i’m the first person to be screwed.
however, being the leader means you can easily delegate all the hard work to other people whereby you just stand and watch them. if they screw up, you just screw them back.
ahahaha. see, i told you. it could have been me doing this.
scouts becoming grave diggers for cats or some other animals that might get killed. hehe. yipork leads the project.
ang showing off his manliness. haha. of course he has to show it. wanna know why? the object of his desire is here. let’s just call her 014. ang was freaking manly whenever she’s around. he can even dig a big hole that can bury winnie and j-cyn together all by himself. wow, i was amazed until zhongyang told me his ‘catalyst’ was there. ahahah.
you learn a lot of stuff by being a scout. seriously.
can any band/KRS/PBSM/St. John’s/ or other uniformed bodies come up with this? and this is not the elaborate type. we were told to keep things simple yet functional.
grasshopper spotted. it’s made of coconut leaves. i was shocked beyond belief. i showed this picture to choon hou. “aiya…fake one a?? cheh” . “i knoe its fake. can you do it???”. he went speechless. haha. scouts 1-0 st john’s. these scouts are really creative when it comes to craftworks.
it’s made only by string. its a mug coaster. it’s made by 014. hehe.
this basket is made from silver-spray-painted paper. more pictures at ang’s blog. i wonder why they put so much effort in this. i only did a ‘tabung’ (piggy bank) from bamboo. i just made a hole and used marker pen to decorate it. because of me, ‘tabung’-s are banned this year. ahahaha.
i pitied ang. the prey was there to be hunted but the hunter seems, well, uninspired to hunt. weijian and justin gave him lots of advice. i could have given some if i was not busy being the leader. anyway, he had his moments with her (albeit being 5 minutes or so). so, congartulations!!
ang roped in justin and weijian to drive out for food. hey, i wanna go. however, i’m supposed to stay in the camp. that’s because if anything comes up and i’m not there means i’m screwed beyond belief. that means they get to go out and sleep whereas i have to stay ‘indoors’ and stay awake. however, they did buy me vegetarian food from outside. they’re good friends, are they? but this incurred the wrath of hilir perak scouts. they complained to me and to some other people but i closed my eyes (and ears!!!).
they are tested on CPR. both firdaus and prashan failed. firdaus pressed on the stomach whereas prashan pressed on the heart. they are supposed to press on the sternum. i taught them many times but they seem to forget. good-lah. both failed.
i was forced to dance because those who didn’t dance need to clean the hall. hey, might as well learn something new that clean the dirty hall. ahahaha. however, certain scouts need to be screwed.
first aids kits? wtf. there are a few of these boxes. it’s appaling. if you don’t know english, don’t use it. it’s humiliating.
i’m done with my service. now i’m waiting for all the sultans to sign my king scout certificate. i hope that i can get the badge form the Perak sultan by the end of the year but then again, since when are VVIP punctual??
