It's almost year end... woots!!! I can hear Christmas bells ringing... Don't you just love Christmas?
Anyway, its been a week since the last BB meeting of the year and I must say that even though I enjoy the extra time that I have... I still miss the bunch of spoilt brats..
On the last week of October, we decided to take them to the Skytrek @ Bukit Cahaya *which I mention in my previous post. Skytrek is *wait, go website and check* SKYTREX Adventure provides an organized outdoor ‘eco-recreational cum educational’ activity which will take the participants from tree to tree via series of aerial obstacles suspended at 3 meters to 22 meters in the air. The first of its kind in Malaysia, SKYTREX Adventure is a place where you can enjoy jungle trekking from a height never reached before – via the canopy! Test your agility, challenge your fear, walk, crawl, glide and swing through our different challenges in the sky, in total safety while appreciating the wonders of the Malaysian Tropical Rain Forest.
Anyway, it was a total challenge for me. Why? Just imagine... I'm taking 150+ children into the jungle to do some stuff which may consists of hanging in the air up to 22 meters in the sky with only 2 ropes holding you up and maybe some Tarzan like stunts... It's enough to make any parents say "NO WAY!!!".
And the logistics was a headache. I had 150 children. 13 officers. 1 helper. 2 mothers. 1 father. 1 toddler. 4 buses which can fit 40 people people. Direction : Bukit Cahaya, Shah Alam. Entrance tickets of RM1 for ages 12 and below and RM3 for ages 12 and above. 5 buses from entrance of Bukit Cahaya into Skytrek which can fit 30+ person per time. 30mins intervals between buses. 3 different challenges. 5 different groups. 5 timing slots. Requirement of appearance at the challenge 30 mins before timing slots. Time for each challenges ranges from 30 mins to 2 hours and 30 mins depending on the difficulty level. Height requirements for different challenges. Waiting time of up to 2 hours to take turns for each challenges. You do the math...
Anyway, despite all the issues that arised such as mis-management by the Skytrax team which pushes us back 4 hours later, and the bus drivers who did not know that way there and made us late by almost an hour, and that it poured so heavily halfway through the challenges that we had to pull everyone in, rescue some from the treetops and hide under a shelter... WE HAD FUN!!! Well, at least they did... me? I was worrying much more :(
I'll leave the pictures to do the talking. Warning: Pictures overload.
I actually started this post last week but didn't have time to finish it. It's been really a really busy time for me. To people, Christmas = holidays season. Me? Christmas = work, stress, mental exhaustion, dark eyes bags and aching feet... I'm expecting 2 shipments in this week and another 2 next week... and Psalms Oasis will be starting its Christmas Best Buys!!! in 2 days time..
Anywhere, here are the pictures before I get distracted again..

Ok, next event .... the most exciting and funnest event of the year...:D
It happened on the last BB meeting for 10th KL..
10thKL gone bonkers :)
Actually, we did not really go bonkers... It's just a game I found on this really cool website called "Bonkers". If you have a group of friends or young people and some outdoor space, it will be a great game. And as we were using Sri Sempurna's School new synthetic grass field, we switch the flour to talcum powder..
It's a game that evolves stations, lots of running, mean officers/station masters, markers pens, talcum powder/ flour, nurses, socks and bonkers...
Station No....erm... can't remember
