Last year firstly joined the 2009 DIY camp in Penang, where get to know from Ah Sing (Tracy).. This year, being encourage by Chris (2009 Camp Leader), and I’ve decide to help and organise 2010 Penang DIY camp =D

Initially was thought Penang only will have one camp like last year, but after register then only found out that there are actually more camp will be happening in Penang. Which is good, because World Vision will be able to raise more fund for the needed =)

Actually there are worries around, hahah. I’m just a normal little human afterall =P.. But lucky is that there are a group of great people behind pushing and helping together. It is really a great team to made this camp a happening one =)

Initially, there was alots people wanted to helps, but days by days, only left not much.. hahah XD pity those who still left.. cos it’s actually less 10 people in organising this camp.. tough, really tough.. Am salute for the volunteering spirits that have in all of us XD hahha

Before Camp

I..Discuss+Planning

During the preparation, we have often come out meet each others for task assign, programme planning, run up, test run, cleaning, etc etc.. And we also going here and there to have great food makan and chit chat discussion for the camp. For example, like in Edelswiss Cafe.

Regarding the flag.. Actually very sorry to those in helping one.. Cause out of sudden, my little brain thought of making a special flag to tie around road side to let campers know the place when they come.. and, hahah XD Fishy, Annling and Yk are those unfortunate to get me dragged on the eve of Chinese Lunar July to get the flag done, hahah XD You guys rocks! X)

Day 1 [14.August.2010]

I..Registration

On Day-1, we were first went to nearby kopitiam to have the last meal before the famine start. And it is the last moment I taste on my lover Kopi Oo Gao before the 30-Hours split T.T…. Then we back and prepare for the registration, campers have coming slowly. The turn up rate was 2/3, which is good already, hahha.

II..Ice Breaking

Of all the events, ice breaking is the first kick start programme, and this have helped by Suteng + Irene. All the campers are then first playing some game and then group into animal categories, bwahaha

III..Famine Challenge

The first Famine Challenge was lead by Fishy. It is mainly to help campers to understand about discrimination in life, and also about the story of Srey Mom. And also given awareness regarding AIDS and prostitution.

IV..Movie Sharing

Here got one movie sharing section which I inserted to let the campers have a rest. The movie screened is regarding the mis-fortune of brother and sister, where they are having difficult life during World War II. The movie name is “Grave of the Fireflies (1988)

V..Treasure Hunt

Next is the the Treasure Hunt game!! hahah. This section is well planned by Yk. It have let the campers to walk in and out and in and out in Chew Jetty, hahah. Campers have now get to know more inside about Chew Jetty =)

VI..Welcoming the Night

After a long day, the night have finally come.. Here, campers have given a drink of soya for those have not able to hold hungers. And also, during the evening, campers are given joys for dancing and getting know each other more.. hahha XD

Day 2 [15.August.2010]

I..Morning Exercise

We start Day-2 with a freshing morning exercise above the sea =D yes, it is above the sea! Cause there have one platform built extended from the land. And lucky it able to sustain all of us jumping around, hahah

II..Community Service

The community service section is a special one to let campers experience the poverty life that the children might get not enough eat in the morning but still need to go to work badly. I am bad to allow this programme goes in XD bwahhaha.. as this one really drained alot of committees’ and campers’ energy.

Campers get to walk around and collect the recycle items, that will be then sold and get more money for the camp. After all of our hard work, we have successful get RM 154.00 additional money from here =D hahha. Great Job everyone!!

III..Movie Sharing

Another movie sharing section I inserted after the tiring activity.. Was intend to let campers to rest actually, hahha. But some are get to watch it from beginning till the end. This time, I have choose the movie regarding the un-told story from a Diamond trading that involved child soldiers circulation in Africa. The movie is actually famous, but surprisingly, not much campers watch it before. The movie name is “Blood Diamond (2006)

IV..Famine Challenge

The second Famine Challenge that lead by YK, Ann Ling and See Ying. It was to bring awareness for campers regarding the hard-full living of streetchild and how the mis-fortune can comes anytime to the streetchild. After the game and do some sharing, I have played one video regarding the Mongolian street child which is given by WV.. After the sharing I’d notice some watery eyes among campers.. Gosh, please hold back the tears >.<!!

V..Break-Fast!!

And Finally!! the long wait 30-Hour have reached!!! hahaha XD

Every one were joy and then give them sing the Famine theme song, Tomorrow. =)   And some sing until cry? =P   After singing, all were provided with Hi5 sponsored bread and also sponsored tasty bao, which is sponsored by my working colleagues.

The 2 days Famine camp have now comes to an end.. So fast!!! Committees were all very very very tired.. After the camp is the moment to snap photos around, hahah. And we have then went to nearby kopitiam to enjoy the great food! hahhaa
