Report On Janda Baik
the 11th of September, a group of GKC YA' s went to Janda Baik to attend a
course on survival skills with Auntie El. We all grouped up at the studio at
nine in the morning. We were all excited and started planning what we wanted to
The trip there was of
course filled with jokes and laughter. We started building a camp in groups of
four. I was in the same group as Amanda, Nadia, Melody and Sarah. After that we
that was bought for us. We started the program with El around two in the
afternoon, it was a lot of fun as we swam in the river while we discussed the
There was a war game
which we played, that I enjoyed very much, eventhough my group lost. It was all
about team work. The other game we played was kind of like leading the blind
people, it also involved teamwork.
was just our luck that it started to rain heavily. Everyone was drenched from
top to bottom. When the rained stopped, we immediatly changed our clothes. We
ate dinner while watching a movie and some even dried their clothes by the fire
place. During the night, we watched a "movie" about birth and
death. Later on, we all went into our tents to sleep.
The next morning was
freezing cold,we lined up in front of the toilet and took turns. We later
started to cook breakfast, omelet.....bon appetite.
we went jungle trekking......" pacat" attack. Everyone started
worrying about those leeches. It was tiring but it was fun too. We reached a
waterfall and the water was sooooo cold but everyone still jumped in.
We took a long walk back
but along the way we saw lots of interesting things. After a short lunch, we had
an etiquette talk about how to mix and match colours, etc. We were all so
exhausted...we all took a nap on the way home.
I really enjoyed this
trip and hope that in the future there would be more trips just like this.
Thanks for inviting me.
