June Holidays 2010

In a flash, the June Holidays ended. By the standard of my boring life, it has certainly been entertaining. First off, we have the Leadership Camp in school.
It is the first camp I had been to in my Secondary School life and thank goodness it did not disappoint. The seniors that was with me are all very caring and fun. And our group leader had been very responsible too =) But We are all leaders in the camp, so I have to buck up alot and (hopefully) become the Chairman of AVA next year. And there's our fun and cheerful instructor, Milo. I thank all of you for giving me a wonderful memory of my first in school camp. (And going into the lake)

Thanks guys!

Also after the camp, there's the trip to KKnM with Jared. No photos for this journey though. Went to KKnM and Kinokuniya with Jared, and I'm glad that he seem to be enjoying himself. Let's hope he would remain as our 'comrade' forever =)
There's the second trip during the holidays to Pulau Ubin with my parents.We had a lunch there and took a stroll around the Sensory Trail area, while feeding mosquitoes with MY blood.

an unused Quarry at Ubin. Ubin means granite in Malay. Figure it out yourself.

A little dog i found under the chair at the place we were having our lunch at. Half asleep
Back at Changi Jetty. Saw this cute neko when we were having dinner at Subway.

I spent my last week of the holidays in my grandma's house, entertained by a certain someone and the uber old windows 2000 computer. Was actually supposed to finish my homework there, in the end, I finished Castlevania Symphony of the Night there instead.

During this holiday, I had not only made new friends in the camp, I get to know someone better too. But one regret was that i did not finish my homework earlier. Even now, my homework is still.. *Depressed*

Well, a good way to end the holiday is the rainbow i saw earlier on. I hop it's a good sign for my upcoming End of Years and Streaming.

What bcotaku feels

Well, after a long wait, the DS's sucessor is finally here, eh. The 3DS is slightly thicker than the PSP Slim , by about 2mm or so (I think) , but is not as wide as the PSP. about 3cm shorter. I think that the positioning of the D-Pad and analog pad is a little weird as i think it might be hard using the D-pad if it is so low. But i think if Nintendo make it this way, it would work out. I am also worried that the Power button might be accidentally pressed when we are using the ABXY bottons, but i might be worrying too much. So right now, i am just wishing that the price might not be that steep (who am I kidding), and that IT IS FINGERPRINT PROOF!!!

Leadership Camp Shirt

I am just back from a 3D2N leadership camp organised by my school =) We're the first batch of leadership campers that get a camp shirt
Frontal view of the shirt. Kinda plain.
Close up of the back with our Leadership Ethos, using the acronym of our school.

So glad I went to the camp. At first, I was hesitant to for the camp as I heard that we will be doing Abseiling during the camp. I am acrophobic. But after thinking it over, I realised that if I don't take this first step, I would never overcome my fear of heights. I had alot of fun during the camp, despite it being a sec3 camp and I am still a sec2. I had made friends with many of my seniors.
Next year, If i get to go for this camp, I WILL GO AGAIN!
