at last....

at long last i got a chance to update the blog...
i owe this to myself, it was never the case of me being too bz, i think it was more of me being lazy...

so, this past weekend from the 22nd of may to the 24th of may, i underwent a camp i my college in order to get chosen to become the facilitator for the first week when the freshies come in...
i'm a senior???!!!! hahaha never thought that day would come so soon....
so on friday all 34 of us came to the college, got registered, upped our gear, all in full spirit, went for the first meeting...
but i guess that's when the reality sank in that not all 34 of us are gonna be selected as the facilitator...
apparently UM(University of Malaya) has decided to limit the number of Facilitators to 25 people.
and that after the 25 was selected they would have no holidays well except for one or two days just o get their stuffs, and will stay on in college till the D-day.
wow...
i guess reality sank in...
it suddenly felt like we were in a reality tv show, survivor anyone??
but everyone was still in good spirits to go through the whole activity/program with hope in our heart to become KK6's next Top PM...
(PM=Pembantu Mahasiswa=Facilitator)
it was kinda sad coz most of us already knew each other, mostly for the boys, we know each other, and to ask some of us to leave was a bad thing all together.

so the activities went on as planned...
(duh.... the program wont stop just because we are sad or anything)

so the first day went on by separating us to 4 groups, that had to come up with the name of the group and their so called 'cheers' in order to go towards the aim of team building.
fun,it was..(yoda)
our group came up with the name wonder-O, i guess the effect of tv on human is more than meets the eye as our name was inspired by the kids show, Wonderpets. so we decided to even use a cheer using the tune of the show.

so that goes on to the night.
then at night, we were separated to the Biro that is needed for that 1st week.
there were 6 Biro's all together and i decided to be involved in the sports and competitions.
so the night went on with brainstorming, knowing our responsibilities and so on.

so the second day begun, with a program our basically talk conducted by a representative from the HEP/main body of UM to talk about team building, teamwork(aint it the same???) and also leadership skills.
so the program was to create a logo and song with the theme that was gonna be used for the Freshies this year..
ONE UM TOWARDS 1 MALAYSIA

twas fun and challenging since we had to present our logo and also sing the song as part of our presentation....
the guy giving the talk was awesome yo... i got labeled as a smart alec.... hahaha well maybe i am who knows...well i dont....

so the afternoon we did more brainstorming to decide on possible problems and solutions faced by each Biro and this went on all through the night too. the presentation was for the final day that was day 3

the evening of day 2 we were sent to PALAPES a body which trains graduates to be back-up army for the army...lol?? o.o
so the program was intensive but fun.. the usual obstacle for group 1 and group 2 build a camp then cook your own meal....
the best part was the 40min walk back from the PALAPES camp back to college..and it had to rain....heavily.
but that was the fun part of it..... wow.....
fun fun fun...
playing in the rain is fun...
well basically we were walking, but it didnt make much a difference..

so today/day 3 went on with the presentations like i stated above and then we voted for whom we chose to be our leader....

just now for dinner we were taken to an awesome restaurant in KL, 65 ringgit maybe much, unless u know how to appreciate the food... 50 perhead would be better, but hey if i had a restaurant it just might be the same prices so im not gonna complain.....

oh yeah... another bit.,..
on the night of the 2nd day...
we were given the worst possible task...
longest 15 mins of my life...well one of it hahahaha
the management gave us a paper and we ahd to list down the 9 candidates to be eliminated from the show....wait i meant from being the PM. we had to act like a leader and choose for the good of the team.
luckily it was confidential...well it had to be.... since reasons why we had to eliminate them need to be given...

for me who hates to judge people/assume how they are,
it was difficult...
who the heck am i,
to choose who was to go....
everyone has their own unique thing bout them...
and in the 3 days we already felt like a family...
bonded big time....
and another reason was we didnt interact with everyone,(honestly since we were stuck to our groups) sometimes there were minimal contact with the others....

so now all is left to wait for tomorrow afternoon...
im off to bed...
really sleepy....
