Combined UG trip

Ah, finally back to the comforts of my home. The past few days spent at Malaysia at Jeram Besu and Taman Negara has been a memorable one besides not seeing any hot babes there. However I could have seen some if only the trip and Cosfest dates didn’t clash. >.>

Anyway, this was the first and ever trip organised for the 3 uniform groups (UGs) from my school, the NPCC, NCC, and NCDCC to get to know the other UGs better instead of having to be used to our own affiliations. And the other aims, was to inculcate the school values as well as learn more about the world. The trip lasted for 4 days with the first one being 100% pure travelling in the coach, the second and third having outdoor activities and the last day, a school exchange programme with a Malaysian village school.

Day 1

The whole of Day 1 was just traveling from Singapore to Jeram Besu (campsite) basically. The teacher officers gave us some work to do on the bus – to fold some stars to be presented to the Malaysian school as a souvenir. Though I think they just wanted to shut the cadets up on the coach.

Day 2

The fun started off with trekking Taman Negara followed by the canopy walkway which was suspended 30-50 metres above ground. The view up there was just breathtaking.

Afterwhich was the 45 minute rapid shooting where it got err, very wet?

Day 3

Visited the cottage industries in the morning like the tofu and groundnut factory. These are just smaller scaled versions of the factories that are situated in Malaysia. Had lots of free food for us to “sample” over there. ^^;

Next up, the cave exploration at some cave (that I had forgotten the name ^^;). There were actually inhibitants that were living in the cave who were the Chinese communist that stayed there during the times when Singapore was on its way to gaining independence, if I remember correctly. There were alot of bats and their droppings as well.

Continuing through the afternoon, we went on to the Berembun waterfall via 4-wheel-drives due to the long and bumpy route in the mountains. During night, a night confident walk was held within the Country Recreation Park’s forest. Compared to Singapore, the ratio of the number of stars seen from Malaysia to Singapore was like ∞ :1.

Day 4

Last day of the trip before I totally knocked off upon the arrival of my bed. As the mushroom farm was nearer to the school that was going to be visited later, it was pushed from Day 3 to Day 4. So yeah, saw alot of mushrooms in the morning.

After saying “hello” to the mushrooms, it was time to say “hello” to the local students. Their 8 uniform groups, to be specific. Surprisingly when I first saw a carpark filled with motorcycles and scooters, the students were the ones who were riding it. And in Singapore and Japan, you can’t do that even if you get a license. Gah. It was really enjoyable to be able to interact with their students although there is sort of a language barrier. There isn’t really much difference with the UGs of other countries, I must say.

And then, I teleported back to Singapore with fond memories of the trip. ^^ Have you ever camped overseas or experience something like this before?
