Metro Camp

I spent the weekend in Lenggeng, Negeri Sembilan. It was in this place called Excel Training Centre and i l.o.v.e.d..i.t! Everything there reminded me of OB. From the dorms (except that OB's dorms aren't air conditioned but they were still pretty darn cold), to the washing area (yup we did our own dishes) to the hills which surround us. The place was gorgeous! And the heater-less shower wasn't any less cold too!

This year's camp had a different approach to the one i went to last year not only because it was at a different place, but it was also organized by a different President. While last year's camp was so typically Ronald, what with Operasi Burung Hantu and obstacle courses and such, this year's camp saw us using our brains, which is so typically Dektos, a little bit more than our brawn. Both very different, both equally enjoyable.

One thing that stood out this time, i feel, was the fact that Anita was leaving. It was like no matter how much fun we wanted to have there was a little part of us which was reminded of Anita's farewell. I wasn't as close to her as the other students were, but i found her very caring and a huge help to every student who walks into the SAO. Anyway, the Thespians did a really touching skit for her. If i were Anita, i'd bawl my eyes out....or not. But i'd be greatly touched. :)

My observations? This new batch of UFP students are going to rock the roof of Metro. Seriously. I have so much admiration for them, that I'm envious. They are painfully shameless, in a positive manner. They are outgoing, they are attention grabbing, they are just out there with everyone as if they've been in the college for years. I love their character, their spunk, their vivacity. I want to be just like them. haha....

I had a blast at Metro Camp. My only dissatisfaction was that it was too short. 2 nights would've turned it into AWESOME. I got to know a lot of people, including myself, a lot better.

wow...i'd never thought a motivational talk would work on me. seriously.

LOL! It would have been 3 days 2 nights but ended up 2 days 1 night due to a miscalculation on the cost on our side... :P

Glad you enjoyed yourself though... number one concern pre-camp was still whether you could make it or not... LOL! and yea sorry for having to put someone in your group... =/
