long last.. only now i update bout this event~ hehe but late than never i guess... semangat cuz just recently had a gathering together at the beach.. so am gona update bout the OBBD, then the dinner together and the BBQ~ so we reached the kpg ayer jetty to catch a boat over to temburong~
i love this 2 pics~ too cute~ wahhahaa chee looks at mas... n mas rolled her eyes to look at chee with that erm...'expression'~ XD
off we go to temburong~ the ride was bumpy~ but oklaa~ just that the wind overly ...arrrgh! blows our hair here n there...messy!
reached safely in temburong..n now in a bus to get to the kem batang duri for the OBBD event...!
reached there.. settled down.. listen to the briefing..we were split into 2 grps then had a light breakfast~ then we all went to our own respective grps..mas n chee in one grp n im in another grp! luckily.. i know someone in the other grp..pheww~
there a closer look on how we first settle down... i didnt know most of them... only like mas, chee, pijah, nina n some faces of the first yr hostelites~
we were in our own grps liaw... see how i sticked to pijah? hahha im not that err...used to ppl i dont know wa... u tink im those social type of butterflies that i would automatically make friends in an instant? ho-hooo~~ i need time also...XD need to build up my confidence~ hehe but they are alright ppl~ thank goodness!
our instructor...hj kassim.. n he ordered us to put all our valuables and mobile phones inside this huge bucket throughout our days here... prevent distractions n stuffs la!
me n newly met fren, mina! hehe she was very approachable wa... so somehow..i stick to her too! XD
posing with our application, ready to go for medical checkup there~ nothing much.. they just asked whether ur health is ok n stuffs...nothing biggie~ some of them thought, need to go for injection lagi~ haha n some of them did act-> holding their arms tightly and showed the 'kena injected' expression! shocked some of them! hehe not for me! i got injected liaw whheee~
errrm fathi ahh~ why make urself miserable by forcing urself to carry so many bags?? XD
n again the cliche way of taking pic..by placing the camera on the floor with flash on...but still cool doing it~!! *gasp* fathi is actually... a girl?? wheee a new girlfriend!
the photography models! the photographers must pose when they take pics too! i think... yas... has the most stylish pose there =)
oooppps~ take back my word... this one lagitaaaaa eye catching!!!!!! wheeeee *hands down* a photographer handling many cameras kaliaaaah~ so pro! n erm.. wassat on the bottom right corner? patung apa tu?? XD
then then grp pics of the two grps~ realised we are all vain ppl who couldnt get enough of the camera~ hehe
time for us to walk arnd n get introduced to the new environment arnd us~ not bad not bad~ we got familiar to the place real quick!
then time for lunch..which was not long after our late breakfast..but ah wells.. we still eat laa.. the plate was..erm... big? i feel like a regular plate was just ok wa...this one? big n wasting space a lil~ but food not bad =) n time to gear up! wearing helmets and life jackets just to cross the bridge(in case the bridge breaks n we fall into the river.. we could still float with the life jackets on) n we had whistles on the jacket too! to whistle before and after crossing the bridge.. only allowed 5 person to cross it at one time.. then over we go.. to listen to health and safety talks la..like 'DR ABC', how to wrap wounds and what u should do in an emergency~
we even have tryouts on how to wrap properly~~ and they check on us~ hahaa lawa kaaan?
this...erm... over wrapping! haha he did look very sick in this pic! but one of my fav pic in OBBD! hahaha his expression was priceless! hmm or maybe his mates wrapped him til he could hardly breathe!
oohh the trust game or something... guess everything should know about this! just stand n fall! seems easy...but when u get to try it yourself.. alil nerve wrecking..but its alright la... =D fun somehow...hehe
this is the stairs leading to the starting point of the flying fox! we were the second grp to go... the first grp.. got some girls ah... scream like what! screaming from the starting to the end! waah shocked us somehow.. mcam its that terrible n scary n whatever terms u call it(if there's ppl nearby n hear the scream..i think they would be scared too...!cuz sounds a lil like..ya knowww.... 'supernatural' stuffs? =P)
its me!! i made it!!! my first time was just a short distance ..then this one.. was long n its nice! this time i got to wear my specs too! got to see the scenery...priceless~ and i placed my camera in the life jacket's pocket..suddenly...towards the end..when they stopped me from sliding foward... pijah called out my name n said 'leong look here look here!' she took a pic of me..n i bangang ehh.. cuz i saw my very own camera!! she used my camera to take a pic of me!! wasehh... then realised... my camera dropped out at the end! sooo lucky..! luckily it didnt drop into the river~ *sigh* ah wells.. congrats! everyone did the flying fox~ goodie goodie!
posing arnd... we did the flying fox!!! wheeeee!!!seems like everyone wana do it agn.. n yesssh! proud of pei fen! she is scared of heights n there she completed the flying fox! n she was screaming like what ehh.. we heard ' im dying im dying!!'n she was fidgetting arnd! we all shocked n worried kaliahhh! when she was actually yelling' im flying im flying!' and tried to do the superman pose XD
this was where we stayed...so rojak our 'hotel'~ hahaha hanging life jackets n towels n wet pants arnd~so not 'ladylike'? hehe i thought so~ n i showered in the toilet cubicle! not the shower cubicle... because all fully occupied owedi wa... n i was in a rush~ sooo desperatee to shower laaa~~ n as it gets darker, ppl got more scared~ cuz u know... ppl tell stories... like this n that laa...*leaves that to ur imagination*
night scenery over there~ =) peaceful waaa ppl~ dont think too much waaa!! hahaha i imagined sja..but there was nothing laaa... n some feed to my imagination wa... like.. we had to walk a lil stairs to our 'hotel' n imagine if there was a hand underneath n grab ur feet? hmm.. n i couldnt really sleep that night.. because.. it was toooooo cold!!!!! raining lagi! n there was this fan directed onto my face! uffft! i imagined there was this lady above me.. n her straight hair was long that it could tickle my face... or else there was a lady at the end of the 'lorong' floating arnd... or there would be footsteps outside... it was all in my head! haaaa~
ah wells... back to our first night there... we had to pack stuffs for the camping the next day.. n had our dinner..the beef was sooooo good! some of us had few servings of that... yuuuum! the gravy n the rice mixed together...oh soo heavenly~ then back to packing! learnt how to use the utensils to cook such as the multipurpose pot and how to set fire n how to pump clean water from the temburong river! n we had to split into smaller grps of 4 to set up our own tents... then we had this... session where we had to draw ourselves n write our goals n go out n talk la...
ehh this is our grp...pengiran bendahara sakam.. having dinner together~ enjoyable enjoyablee~~ n after every eating session.. we had to wash our own dishes n place them to dry properly~ ah wells... after everything including halfway packing...it was arnd after midnyt that we had to balik n rest... n when we already pack almost abis..SUDDENLY GOT A LOUD ALERT SOUND outside.... i was very blur...but the rest started to say....life jacket life jacket!!! everyone rushed.. n i took my life jacket blurly! n everyone started to rush outside.. n i was still blur... rupanya its just..sumthing like a fire drill la.. ehhe n the most ksian person is saiful.. he was sleeping while standing... we all could see cuz his head kept nodding off~ XD then we got back to sleep~ tats where my imagination starts to play in my head~
early morning we woke up~n got ready for our hiking day! n our hiking bag was reaaaaaally heavy!!!! heavy til it hurts! sigh...rupanya we didn tighten the belt arnd our waist... realised that only after 30min worth of climbing arnd? -_-
early morning exercise~we jogged n did some warm up exercises in the middle of the road...it was quite nice.. cuz early morning cool wa.... but i wont do it here in seria..cuz i wont wake up by tat time waa =p
