Well I think the whatever disease is spreading....So far my mother has been saying whatever to me like 5 times a day.Maybe she caught the fantabulous disease from me too....Sigh....I seem to be influencing my mother until she is like a evil woman.So I think I shall stop saying and telling her words like that.See if she stops.
Today since I ahve nothing to say so I decided to give you a bit of Artemis Fowl's Lost Colony which is the fifth book.
Chapter 1:Blast To The Past Happy was not a word often used to describe Artemis Fowl's bodyguard . Jolly or contented were also words that were rarely applied to him or to the people in his immediate vicinity.Butler did not get to be one of the most dangerous men in the world by chatting with anyone that happened to stroll pat,unless the chat concerned exit routs and secret weapons.
One this particular afternoon Butler and Artemis were in Spain,and the bodygaurd's Eurasian featera were more tactiturn than usual..............

To everybody that is reading this blog please support my school in the Sing Singapore thing.Here is the link to vote for our school http://www.singsingapore2010.nyc.sg/ to vote.Search for What It Takes and vote.Thanks you guys.
It was the first day of the camp. The P5 pupils were unable to contain their excitement, hence, they started to get noisy from the time they were at the basketball court in the school in the morning. I had a hard time getting them quiet so that the P4s could concentrate on their silent reading. Soon after assembly, the trainers from Innotrek came and they gave some briefing and grouped the children up. Buses came and the children got on excitedly. I went off to fetch the HCI and NYGH big brothers and sisters. They were a fantastic lot. I had a short briefing on the bus so that the camp helpers knew more about NYPS children whom they would see for the next two days.
Upon reaching the camp, the children were assembled at the canteen where they would be having the breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper for the next three days. You could easily feel the anticipation in the children as all they could do was talk. The camp chief of Innotrek and I had a hard time keeping them quiet so that they could take our instructions. After what seemed a long time, the pupils were then brought to their A-huts for boys and dormitories for the girls. Some were happy as they got to sleep with their good friends, some were unhappy. Whatever the happiness or unhappiness, they seemed to get by and got on with the activities.
Objective setting was the first task assigned and the children were to set their team objective for the camp. Then came the lunch when the children had filled up their stomachs with rice, vegetables, chicken wings, fish cakes and wedges of oranges. Wthout much delay after lunch, the teams took turns to do two of the few activities like Hangout, Abseiling, Challenge Valley, Team Building, Rock Climbing, Backwoodsman Cooking etc. This was the first time for most of the pupils to try out high-elements activities. It was a great experience for the pupils, but our 'poor' teachers and camp helpers had to stand in the sun to see to the safety of the pupils. No sunblock or UV lotion was enough to get those harmful rays off the skin of the teachers.
Time flew off when the children had much fun trying out new things. Dinner came. Fish, vegetables, fried wantons, rice and slices of apples were served. Some of the children tried to skip their fruit intake, but teachers wanted them to eat them up for some fibre intake. Soon the children had their shower and song session before they were in for a night's out. Walking under the stars blindfolded with a friend behind was quite a feat. The children were to use their listening skills to listen to sounds so as to find their way around without the help of their eyes was truly a difficult thing to do. Some broke off from their lines, some held on to each other's hands with their 'dear lives'. They managed and succeeded in completing the activity.
After a debrief by the camp chief and our camp commandant, Mr Numa, the children got to have their supper of milo and biscuits. They then rushed back to their sleeping places and I would have guessed that some would be too excited to sleep, while some were 'knocked out' after a day's fun.

The last picture shows me and my class.See it!
Sorry that I have bo been posting for a while..... I am currently writing this from our school computer lab.So gotta hurry up.
This post is about how HORRIFIC and STUPID the camp was to me so warning,a lot of whining coming up.The day before the camp,we packed like hell and I couldn't find my tamagotchi,my socks etc.So sleep at about midnight cos of packing.
During the first day,I wantedf to SCREAM.You know why?Cos the zipper of my backpack had broken.We were the last to leave and we were becoming BBQ under the hot sun.When I got onto the bus I was like worshipping the air-con like all pray to the air-con that kinda thing.
When we reached Suriban Scouts Camp.My first impression was 'this is going to be a BAD trip' and I was right.When we were there we were starving and they dun even wanna give us food!!!!!!I was starving!!!!Before we could eat we had to sing this chant like this: Very Very,Hungry Hungry,Hungry Very,Very Hungry,Chi Ka Lump Ta P Ah Pi Ah Sha!!!!Ridiculous right.So we ate a meal of salty and preserved food that made ME skip some of the food.YURGH!Blurgh up my socks.Serious.Then we had some activites like Whale Wash and High Elements.Like all humans,I am scared of heights so I screamed and screamed before I even completed one bar so therefore the trainer let me come down.My trainer told me that the reaon why I was so scared was that I did not trust her with my life and along with my fear of heights was NOT a good combination.
The next day my back hurt cos we were sleeping on wood boards.I wore my red shoes for the Mud Pond that we were going for.But like 2 activities before the Mud Pond and juz before Abseiling both the soles of my shoes came out.So no chance of a Mud Girl coming out of the pond.Yay!When we went back home on the bus we like changed the lyrics of some of the songs that they taught us in camp eg.The Toilet Song went like this:
Meet me by the toilet, Meet me all alone I have something to show you And it is brown and squishy...... One pung sai Two pung sai and so on so forth.
So this story tells you that if someone learnt what kids do when they are bored with friends,they could be entertained for life.....
So that it.My camp experience.

Ok,here it goes....We basically went on this trip to karaoke(for me) so all I can say is actually we went to karaoke.....But I shall elaborate.When we went there,there was like this HUGE traffic jam and we took 3 hours(in my opinion) to get there.So you might ask,how did we keep ourselves entertained?Well we talked,played some PSP and ate snacks that way I guess made the time go faster.... When we reached our destination we yet had to waste 20min finding a car park lot and then we proceeded right to Red Box,the karaoke place there.I of course sang a ton of Taylor Swift songs,while my Uncle Lawrence started singing Lady Gaga's Poker Face,Bad Romance,Paparazzi so on so forth.While we were singing our hearts out,the gals went shopping. So that concludes my trip.
