apparently got back from sri gardeniaa kedah resort for the english camp.
the journey was tiring, but i guessed it worth it.
this camp enables all 506 tesl students from all ipgm to gather and be mingling around each other within this five day camp. it is also a good place for us to expand our networking with other students from other ipgm all over malaysia.
frankly speaking, i didn't make many friends as much as i did in other camps that i have attended. probably because i am quite shy and a bit slow in making friends in a short period of time. it takes a long time for me to adapt with the environment i lived in.
in the end, i think i really know only a few, less than 10 people perhaps. in which it means friends that i know more rather than only their names and from which ipg.
the camp was actually held in Gardenia National Service Camp. so, whatever activities held are adhered to the camp's rules and regulation as such doing the PT activity; running around the camp in the morning before breakfast and others too.
i met a few friends from kmk too.. from my interview group to my next room's neighbour too..
well, to cut is short, i met ain, my neighbour in kmk and also mira my former H2T8 classmate..
well, the activities:
i was grouped together with munirah, banu, and aziz.
been into group 8, also known as cyan, which munirah pronounced it as 'sian'.. haha
the group was consisted of several ipgs such as us(ipba), ipti, ip gaya, ipkb, ip ipoh and some others which i could not recall much..
we've done such activities that required us to remember all their names, also including ala-ala american next top model. the different thing is that, the models had to peragakan pakaian mereka which are made of newspapers. and guess what, our group's model is our encik aziz. very funny indeed. especially when he became the cover for that day's bulletin, and commented that he is actually a bit shy.. hehe.. ye lah tu, aziz..
okay, we did an activity more or less just like the treasure hunt kind of thing. here, we need to find 7 envelopes with a diamond symbol on it. and from there i met mira from gaya and accidentally form a so-called gang ' moral supporters' together with munirah. why i named it that way? it's because throughout the activity, we couldn't contribute anything as we didn't found any of those envelopes. huhu.. get the point?
i was in room 2. the first group made me to half-doze off.. the second group was quite okay.. but was kind a regret for not joining emkay to the room 1.. room 1 got jiani and jega as the penalists for both groups. they said jega had done her job very well..
not really enjoy it as not many of iparians were there. saw hui jia with her speech. saw one friend from kmk as well. we used to call her cekpah and currently in ip gaya. her speech was entertaining as she finishes her impropmtu with the word ' go green' whereas her topic for that was one malaysia, if i've not mistaken. and i dunno what that suppose to relate with 'one malaysia'.. huhu
love it the most. all ipbarians in room 1 rocks. especially alicia.. really made us burst into laughter. and ila accidentally burst into few drops of tears? huhu..
we got sk datuk wan kemara. just a few kilometres from my beloved kolej matrikulasi changloon. haish.. the visit was nice. my group was handling 20 pupils from standard two. we held a sing-a-long, story telling on beebo and the cloudmaster ( the actual hero was peeper, beebo's friend, and i still thinking why beebo gets the credits..hurm), colouring competition, and guess some superheros names. and lastly, a game which i dunno how to describe it.. hehe.. ruhan's idea..

okay laa.. but too less time to go jalan2.. it was enough only to fulfill our hungry tummies. berjaya merasmikan kemeja baru.. wore it with my black slack, also for the first time.. well, guess that i will be transforming into a new me.. in fashion, i supposed?
may i say it was great too? it's because we're the one who handled it... wahhaha.. and we're the first to perform.. feel great about it.. i think we made the audience to giggle at us for quite some time as compared to other ipg.. i think laa.. what do you think?
ok lar.. but manage to continue my contribution as 'moral supporters' in ghost whisperer as emkay and me manage to get away from need to hafal the tongue twisters. hehehehe.. we 've made it to escape due to lack of time~
hate it.. the management sucks. we only got our meal quite late.. it was after 9.30 when we got all the menu,especially the roasted chicken. it wasn't fair because the earlier people managed to get more than what they supposed to get and we only get one each, only after queued a long line and b'gaduh a bit with the people who serve the food. sorry for them, we were hungry okay !
after dinner, i lepaking around with mira and ain from ip gaya. have a quite long chit chatting until it passed 11.15..hohoho... basically they are my friends from other ipg that i'm closed to.. watched the video throughout all activities.. i wondered why the cameraman focused on nor during the school visit for quite long.. hm.. any idea?
well, i guessed i have summarised all the activities done within those few days. it brings a new experienced for me as we are all gathered there with the same basis, to become an english teacher in the future. we've spoke almost all in english and thus,
we are now, infected with the inevitable english language,
that makes us, part of the amazing new world of english..

ahha, there's a funny incident that happened to me within this so-called camping.
that day was wednesday, when i was about to wear my tudung to go for dinner, suddenly i heard a shout from the end of the dorm. there were 2 indians and a chinese sitting on a bed and were chitchatting. do you know what they're shouting about?
them: hey you, we thought that you were a chinese!!
me: no lar... i'm a malay...
them: bu you really looked like one~
then we burst into laughter.. so funny la wei.. this is the second time other people thought me as a chinese instead of a malay.. the first time was during the national service too... also by a chinese girl, wendy yit xiao ling.. huhuhu
that's all from me now.. daa
p/s: perhaps that i have no pictures at all with me by the time being.. my phone crashed and i don't brin any camera with me.. pity me my friends. after this wanted to pick up and transfers photos from my other friends..
