NV Choir Camp

NV Choir Camp
-----Last yr Nov, my cca, choir, had a 3 days 2 nights camp on 25,26 & 27 of Nov. I, myself, was been selected as 1 of the grp leader(veri stress & tired),a grp that i am nt close (be4 the camp, now close already)or know be 4. This camp is 4 us(choir memb)to noe each other & united together to strengthen the whole choir in nxt yr(2005) SYF competition during Apr. That night be 4 this camp i can't sleep well, becoz maybe scared of whether i can handled such big grp(around 11)(but, turn to be ok 4 me to handle). That's wat i was thinking when i am on my b-e-d @ 11.30pm that nite. I think until 12+mn then i zzz until 7.45 am the nxt day(causez i don't noe whether is 8 am/9 am reach sch)(that time i was shivering don't noe is scared/afraid/cold or something, my hands & body keep shaking)(luckily, max made a call to my hse & we agree to take bus 119 @ 8.30 & so we reach sch @ 8.45am). We(all memb, except comti memb) waited 4 15 mins(to 9 am), be 4 the door was open to let us in(i think the committee is having a disscussion). The 1st thing we see is the name list & the grp that we assign to on the screen in front of the white board 9:20am my name & max, zx,michelle,sheena,sherilyn's name[y all sec 2, is becoz the teacher-in-charges(mdm wee)said that we(choir)must train the juniors to let them improve their leadership qualities & may consider putting us into nxt yr choir committee(sect.lead,asst.lead,president,vice.pres, treasurer...)] were been called & a list of name was been gaven to us(to mark attend-ence). Our president(shihui) "help" us call out the names on the list & was assign to gather around 4 briefing by mdm wee. She told us(whole choir) the camp rules(like never enter the rooms of opp. gender, cleaniness, sleep well(later i will be talk abt.), respect...),then we were been assign to the rms girls:3e1,3e2,3e3, boys:3t2.At 10 am, we play the ice breakers, 1st game we played the black blanket game,2 teams must sit opp. in 1 row separate wif a black blanket holding high up in between the 2 grps facing each other, when the blanket drops, the 1st 1 to say the opp. pp name(which is in front pp)correctly score a point. First it was play 1 by 1, later increase by 2(in pairs) & in 3(triple). It's fun playing , coz from there u will noe others pp names better. The 2nd game is the duck goose, which is similar to the hit-run game (a person will tap another 1 behind the back & run 4 "life" & must return back to the empty place be4 been catch by the person chasing behind u)4 e.g.(i 1 to tap the 5th person, so i tap & say to the 1st 4 "duck" behind her/him but to the 5th "goose" & then do the actions around the circle form by the players once be 4 sit on the empty place, be 4 been tap back by the pp u tap juz now. It's fun playing, but it's tired becoz must do the actions(cannot run/walk)(like crawl,hop on 1 & 2 legs)around the circlebut the grp get bigger & bigger coz more & more other grp memb came to the grp to play(the more the players, the larger the circle, so need to crawl e.g. around the circle which is at least 1 of the badminton court. The last game is the worst game 4 some of the memb, the game is play like this: our shoes are been taken off as foods during "war" times & were store in the treasurer(transparent)guard by 6 unlucky pp choose by the grp. 2 grp is form & the more shoes u gt fr. the opp. team (+ the shoe u gt left)is the winner,but 1 pp can onli take 1 shoe at a x. So, the 6 unlucky 1s must hold hands/buried themslves wif the shoes/cover the shoes up 4 nt been taken by the opp. team, but if u cover the shoes how could ur team memb take other team shoes & put into ur(so we juz "squeeze" through the limit space to put in the shoe into the treasurer & scream/shout/snatch to get the shoe out of the treasurer(transparent==nth)guard by the 6 unfortunate pp of the opp. team. We(others, nt guards) must run to opp. team to get a shoe each & run back to put into the treasurer, but it end up 2 teams taken the equal amt. of shoes (58 all) & the guards were covered wif messy hair(by the process of snatching & putting) & some wif bruises of his/her hands & legs(poor them,i can swear)then, it's the item preparation every grp must prepare a drama skit, ads, song abt apple within the 3-5 mins given, my grp prepared the edited version(by us) of snow white,7 drawfs & an apple. my grp that day plan out who shall do wat & writing down the storyline directed by crystal*. After that it's makan time(lunch),but all grps must cheers 1st be4 eating,(the loudest eat 1st)our grp managed to came out of a cheer& were given to eat. after makan is sing time 1,my liew,our instructor, taught us how to improve on the 3 SYF songs & after that we went 4 a mini badminton tournament @ 4pm, divide into men,women & mix double, becoz all parts(nt women double)need boys & my grp onli have 3 boys(include me),so i need to participate in the mix double, but unfortuately we(& a girl) lost(score:12-9) to james & vict. After, we went to bath @ (men)5.30-6pm(the rest left 4 women)(6-6.30). i quickly change my sch shoes into slippers&take my towel,soap &unwear clothes & run to the toilet cubicle @ the bath) was a rush becoz of no time, i queue up & quickly went into the cubicle & had a bath(sui bian wipe the soap on both my head & body & had a rinse to clean the body within 5 mins & the water is auto 1 so no need to off the tap, it will automicaly turn off SLOWLY,there is onli 1 hanger to put my clothes(both wear/unwear)& outside is still shouting 4 their turns,as i didn't take my comb along, i went spike hair when i wipe hair dried. Nxt is the dinnner makan time, again we managed to think of a cheer&were allow to eat. nxt, is the DVD time by mr liew, although, my liew didn't came, he recommended us a musical abt slavery to us to watch. Although, the musical is a little bit boring, i still enjoyed watching,the actor&actess performed a great act&sing 4 us to learn from. (10.30)aft. we take our cups & went to the canteen to drink milo&eat biscuits 4 supper. aft. we went back to classrm & change into slippers, take our brush,paste,clothes(me)(to change)&small towel(me).aft. the light went off @11.45pm & we were focus to zzz becoz tiredness==voice no gd(affected), but the classrm floor is sososo hard that i can't zzz well(&my sleeping bag thickness is so less, juz like nth), so do some of my frenz!!!all the events almost the same...the nxt day(2nd day)...we woke up @ 0630 to wash up & do the stretching @ 0700. then it is makan time...we were all hungry, aft the fun workout...then it was the Games time...they r divide into 5 different parts of games held on different places...the most fun thing was to carry 1 or more pps to reach & touch the justea drink...& it will be higher...when the lvls gone up...& me was to appointed to carry kp in the 1st & crystal carry pat in 2nd round !!!tires me!!!haha...still gt the weighting things 1...grps must give the exact or closer measurements given by the team caption. & each grp can onli weigh we must guess who + who can get the closer measurements...the worst combination was 3 pps on 1 small weighing machine which needs a weight of 180 kg(the last round)...& we won ...yes!!!end @12nn after makan, is the singing time...which ends @ 0400 we have 2 hrs to rest & bath & 4 the item preparation & it was fun becoz zhiming & pat is too funny lor {haha}!! then it was the makan time & singing time. i must say that that day singing time is the unforgetful 1. especially from 10 onwards...we were(every choir member+mr liew) given each a piece of blank paper to write down our name. then these pieces of papers were passing around 4 the every1 to say a few good words on the person on the paper...if the person writing do not noe the name on the paper...he or she can shout the name..."who is -------". & it was lovely to see every1 write on your own piece of paper{very touch lor, aft. seeing the paper}& so i brought this sweet memories to sleep after washing up.
