Drama camp was very fun!
ps: you might want to prepare potato chips or snacks for this super long post
k this was the first day of camp and i reached sch at around 2
very thankfully, the side gate was opened if not i rly dont know how to survive carrying my almost wardrobe-sized luggage to the main gate and finally lifting it to the third storey
imagine the amount of potential energy that my luggage and i would have gained
i made it to the i&e alive, though half dead and was very warmly welcomed by a huge applause from my juniors =Dt
hey were doing a skit called macbeththe small room in the i&e was opened to serve as a place to put the food and for those who are on night duty
i love the small room, its rly cozy
i then spotted checked the food that the organisers bought which consists of 3in1 milo, jam and peanut butter, tin biscuits, apollo cakes and oreo
and i immediately discovered that something was missing
how could there be no apples in a 3D2N camp?!!!
since there were funds left me carl and sebastian went to the lrt minimart to buy 50 apples bread and orange syrup
after the el session at 4 we immediately started camp programmes
the leaders and some other juniors wiped the i&e floor as we had to sleep on the floor at night and that dirty shoes is not allowed on it after thatwe thn got into our group where siowmay was my leader and started the first obstacles race
station1: A had to turn 8 rounds on a baseball bat and run to station 2 where B is waiting
station2: A had to throw 3 balls into the the pail that B is holding and thereafter, B has to fill a pop bottle with water using a sponge and run to station 3
station3: blindfolded C will have to bring the bottle to station 4 under directions from D
station4: D and E have to giap the bottle batween their back and move to station 5
station5: F and G will then have to do the three-legged race
station6: H will then have to blow a balloon to a standard sizeand during the whole race, opponents from other team and shoot u with a water gun or throw u with a tennis-like balls, super complicated
me and ningwei did the 3 legged-race
however the winning team was vincent's group *jeers and sneers*
winning team could bathe first but i didnt cared less and bathed with them
eh i senior leh!
and soon it was time for dinner: cup noodles
some of us went home econs rrom to boil water and ate in canteen
hungrier ones could eat two cups since there were extras
then we did the night trust walk the one that u have to blindfold eye and put your hands on the shoulders in front of u and walk around the sch
it was very fun and thrilling because we have to take special care to the steps in front
and ms lim and some leaders fabricated some obstacles like wooden planks above us or holes in front of us and asked us to bend down or open our legs wide to cross over the 'holes'but it was very fun overall
then we had supper which consists of milo and apollo cakes
i helped in the pao-ing of milo leh!
i love to pao milo
then we watched movie, evan almighty in i&e
i didnt find the movie intereesting so i slept first
the floor was super hard and the room was super cold
but i was rudely awakened after the movie by some irritating juniors
lights out in drama is no lights out at all
i woke up around 7am and felt tired and that was when i felt rly relieved that i rejected carl when he asked me to do night duty
after washing up we played fruit salad and blow wind blow and then i went to pao milo
and it was after us putting the milo powder then we realised that mr neo had alr pao milo for us
counsellor also had camp and pls compare our budgets
breakfast for counsellors: 90 packets of meehoon with fishcake, drumstick/wing and veg although there were only 40 counsellors
breakfast for drama: blueberry jam, strawberry jam, peanut butter, white bread and biscuits
since there were extra meehoon we ate the leftovers (so pathetic)
then we played dog and bone in quadrangle
daniel is so small and jian and he scored almost 5 points for his team
i didnt help my team to score even a point at all
not surprising since i'm not crafty
thereafter we unravelled the fairytale
it was a lame game with no winners so i shan't bother to go into details
lunch was macdonalds!
although all we could order is one mac chicken burger since it was the cheapest
there was orange juice (not from macdonalds but from the minimart orange syrup)
the programmes after lunch was not carried out as ms lim got news from mr neo that cca day is brought forward to 19dec and that we have to prepare a skit
so we had to waste the camp time discussing whether we should do the unity, palace deception or liberty play
we finally decided on liberty but we do not have the script as it was improvisation by carmen, vincent, anna, pinhui and carl
so vincent contacted the original actors to come and re-act the play again
pinhui and wenyi was free to come while the others were basically too busy with school
the after lunch time was even more wasted when we were informed that we do not have to act on that day anymore
but still, pinhui and wenyi is still happy to come for gossips
played captains ball and i was the captain!
'ba qiu pass gei wo xiang xing wo!'
angeline fell and vincent was like half running and half pulling her up but she couldnt stand up and the scene was hilarious haha
we bathed, the water was super cold and ate ho kee nasi lemak for dinner! (much better than cup noodles)
i love the fragrant rice =D
we had treaure hunt in the dark after dinner but before that each group had to prepare clues of anything or places in level 1
sandy, zhiyu, minyu, vincent and yvonne was in my group
we chose the statue outside general office and vincent said that mr tien mentioned that its made of brass before so we wrote 90% copper and 10%zinc and drew two bras in the paper
we are not sure of the percentage but his should be itt
he second one was shu xuan and the clue we wrote was complicated, i shant explain it
the third one was the quadrangle flag raising there and the clue we wrote 'louder.. louder than that'
i'm sure everyone knows what that means =D
then pinhui and wenyi came and gossiped
we introduced to them some new faces of gossip in the sec 1 haha
then they helped to facilitate the treasure hunt
meldon's group got our clues and we got their clues
clue 1: drink water think back ans: a stone in the pond that says ying shui si yuan
clue 2: 记得'宣轩'
ans: shu xuan
clue 3: wanton=十七树
yea tell me wht clue 3 means siawe thought it was canteen because of the wanton
we even thought that it was the seventeen tree in some part of level 1 or even a car plate number or room number
we rly stumped at this clue
and ran practically the whole sch
sudd zhiyu ling ji yi dong and scrrrrrreamed: wo zhi dao le!
and then she was like running towards the canteen at the speed of light
none of us knew what happened and just ran behind her crazily
then they were like looking around the canteen for a poster and zhiyu was like: wo swear wo kan guo bu ran wo tok wo de tou xia lai
and suddenly someone went : wo zhao dao le!
the clue turned out to be one ton=17 trees
if u are still unaware of whats going on thn your eyes must be blind
remember the poster on the pillars of canteen
and i still remember that i was like telling lishan: eh ni kan one ton = 17 trees leh!
after finding the stickers hidden at these places we had to report to ms lim
but she nao shi zhong and we were so desperate to win and practically resorting to shout: ms lim ni zai na li you ren yun dao le!
yay we came in first!
then we helped other groups and when all were solved i went to pao milo for supper
while pao-ing milo sebastian's joke made me laugh like crazy
after supper i went toilet to brush teeth and the corrider is soooooo dark and eerie
so everytime i would ask katherine along since she is not scared of things
good companion for dark places haha
then we watched get smart it was quite an interesting movie and i tried to finish watching the movie but i watched and watched and the movie is like no way near the end
so i asked zhiyu if the show is ending and she say zhong dian dou hai mei dao ne
upon hearing that i immediately went to slp
day 2 had been a long day and i yi jiao dao tian ming
partly because i used my bag as pillow, good support for my neck and wear socks to warm my feet
woke up at 8am woah
breakfast was bread and jam
then we played dog and bone in sch hall
after ytd lesson learnt sandy was like 'kan zhu daniel! bu yao rang ta you fa hui de ji hui!'
feet was super dirty after all that 'mopping'
and agn i didnt help to score any points
lan yu chong shu
cleaned up i&e did reflections and break camp
so sad right
