How long has it been? Punya lama sudah sia x blog. hahaha. So sory. Obligations and lazyness called. Anyway, I posted in my Facebook status that I’ll be updating after games of DoTA. So, here I am. Mengantuk sangat, tapi nda pa la. Janji tatap janji!
So. Let me recap back on STE!!
Wait2. Let me just say this first. STE is F*CK*NG AWESOME!!!! The people, the learning, the experience, the place and the food are darn majestic and stupid-to-be-missed. That one week of Fun was fatful and blissful especially for me!. Hohoho. So, HERE WE GO!
Okay. I think I’m too tired to recall what happened on what day and what activity was on what time. Hahaha. So, I just make things simple here. I’ll make a highlight of the activities in STE. hehe. I’m putting quite a number of pictures so please, if your computer can’t take it, but you are so eager to see it, just close all application and wait for my page to load. Hahahahaha.
===> FOOD < ===
Muahaha. I dunno. I just like to start with food. The food is damn awesome lah. I remember having that western theme and we had this spagetti, chicken chop and chips in a plate. The sauce was damn TASTY that I wanted to steal some more from my friend’s plate. Oh, wait. I did. Hahahahaha. During the Indian-themed meals, we were seated and served by the awesome waitresses and waiters of the Resort. SEDAP!! I don’t have any picture to share of the foods, cuz I straight away eat them when I sit down at the table. Hahaha. Oh, the tea breaks and supper was awesome too! We were required to sit with people of different races, hometown and background. Integration. Hehe. Ok2.
===> RESORT <===
Well, the resort was quite hidden if you ask me. It’s located down a hill and is very2 strategic for relaxation. Hehe. There’s a river inside where you can bath in, but, my gang didn’t go for a dive or even a foot-dipping session. Hahaha. Hmm. Don’t ask why. Haha. We have our reasons. =).
Oh, my roomates were initially Stiel, Arunan, Helmi, Ashraf, Nazmi, Khaizie and Robert, but, everyone decides to switch room. Hahahaha. I stayed in my room with Stiel when Fli, Syahmi, Mark, Nasrie and Nuzul moved in. Hahaha. Talk about integration. Haha. Oops. Anyway, Chun Keat came late for the camp and he ended up in our room. Woo! haha. Ok2. I’ll introduce them ..
Hoho! So that’s my gang for the whole STE. haha. Basically, they all memang close to me in UTP. Hahaha. Just that got closer to Stiel po and Nas po this STE. haha. Got to see their good and wild side *ehem ehem*. Anyway, I won’t go out of topic here. Hahaha. So, outside the resort, there’s this road that leads to a locked gate. We took a jog there. Haha.
Hoho. I think we only got to jog for two days. Haih. Hahaha. Moving on, moving on. Oh! I forgot. There’s this one big hill you gotta climb up to get to the classes. Thankfully, our rooms are halfway on the hill so resting is easy. Haha. Let me see if I got any hill pix. *Search search*
==> CLASSES <==
Wah!! I can talk for days about this. Huhu. Pix or Post first? Well, let me just write first.
I tell you, upon coming to STE, I was a bit reluctant, I had this sense of insecurity and annoyancy about this camp. I mean, it’s during the sem break. Heck, I’m as fat as a fully-fed-pig during the holidays and coming to the camp, I felt fat but kept on. I was annoyed cause seriously, I HATE MOTIVATIONAL TALK. Well, I thought this camp was a camp full of crappy motivational talk, turns out, it became one of the best camp I’ve ever attended! Hahaha.
So, at first, coming into the class, I felt so foreign. I know Syahmi, Stiel, Yves, Daphnee, Venice, Halley and Ayu. The rest were just unfamiliar face except for Cain and Zarith. I don’t know them that much. Hahaha. Turns out, everyone in the room was damn happening people! I still remember when we came back to the room, we heard from the rest that their Class are very passive in terms of participation. Hahaha. I don’t know how but our classes are so damn fun and great. With the debate, participation, jokes, dance, singing and team spirit, I never wanted to leave the class. Huhu. I think all of these are possible with these 3 particular people. Huhu.
alamak. Sory2. I don’t have any picture of Mr. Emir. Huhu. But, he’s awesome too! Hehe.
Ok! Ehem. Pictures are coming up next. Hehe. But first, there was this session of power nap, which I LOVE so much!! Hahaha. We all were given this kain pelikat that we can use as a bantal or whatever, we were asked to lie down on the mat and after that, the lights were off, the music was turned on and you can hear Mdm Zubaidah’s voice saying :
“Think about your shoulder.. Your shoulders only.. Breathe in… Hold it in for a while.. Breathe out.. ” Hahaha.
I SO LOVE THAT! Hahaha. We watch some movies too during the class, Such as Simon Birch, Falling Down, etc etc.
*haiz, I just fell asleep on my bed for over 5 hours. adui. hahaha. i’ll continue now*
There was one session where we were given a piece of paper and we can write any painful memories that we had. The lights were dimmed, the music suited the mood and the room was filled with an air of reluctantcy and awkwardness. At first I think I didn’t want to open up. Even in the dark, being emotional never been a public thing for me. But eventually, the mood got to me, I wrote almost 6 pages. CRIED on top of my paper. Well, not exactly crying yang kesakitan tu. This was more like the tears rolled down my cheeks relentlessly as I wrote down those memories. I never had any painful memory. I mean, no significant ones. Just that 2 memories in particular that has been close to my heart that I never wanted to look back again.
I’ll admit here, as I have admitted in the class also, I’ve never shed any tears for emotional reasons since I’ve hit puberty. *ehem ehem*. Well, I won’t count those tears that rolled when Kim Ah Joong was singing in tears in 200 pound beauty. Hahaha. Oops. Back to the topic. And so I thought maybe I was caught up in the moment of emotional that day, then, we had this sharing session where the light were dimmed again, we all were sitting in a circle and telling our stories on what we took for granted especially in our parents. I see that nobody wanted to open up so I went early. Then, others starts to open up, revealing stories up to others. I really cried when I heard stories from people that are really heart-wrenching. This just proved to me that everyone do have dark areas in the past that they wish to forget, that they wish to mend. Argh! Enough2. Ok, what next?
Oh!! Competitions. Haha. I love competitions. In the class, we were grouped to 4 teams, I ended up in Mach 5, with Halley, Zhong Ying, Cain, Nazmi Superman, and Helmi. Awesome people! Haha. Nazmi is super quiet to me before now can talk a bit. Hahaha. Halley memang my friend so no prob. Cain pun makin lama makin ok ngan dia. Haha. Zhong Ying is super sombong to me at first, hahaha, but, eventually she yang banyak cakap. Helmi smiles a lot. Haha. Talk less but still talk to me la. Haha. We ended up 3rd. Nevermind, we were left behind like crazy before this and almost pintas Primax for second place in the end. No matter what, I so love you guys!!
I think I really like the class people. Huhu. During the outdoor activity SOS, we had to save ourselves using only 5 planks of wood on this sea. It was damn wide you know. Hahaha. Well, my teammates did planned everything out but didn’t quite make it at first. At first only Arunan, Ashraf and me who went on to the sea, we were in good pace until this fat pig drowned. Ops. That’s me! So rude panggil me pig! hahahaha. Anyway, Acap was saved so Arun came back alone, then, the tragedy happened. When Arun was almost 3 quarters back to the ship, he drowned!! So, our plank were floating in the ocean without anyone to take it. The mood of the group was so low. Huhu. Then, the people from the other team were trying to help us at first, but their group members were shouting just take their planks for us! Wth. Then when they were attempting to steal it, they ended up drowning as well, so now, they had 3 people save across, but we only had Acap saved there. Sad. But, my team members’ spirit were never low, they tied up their shoe laces to a shoe as a hook. The ghost of the drowned people at the seaside were never at peace. Lol. We kept shouting and cheering for our team althought Mdm Tasnima kept shhhhing on us. “Hantu mana boleh bercakap”, “You are supposed to be dead”. Lol. Looking at the other team, they were stunned at our attempt to get back the plank, yup. Stunned. They didn’t even made an effort, no cheer, no nothing, up until the point where the Facee told them to make an effort, or maybe they were just planning too long? I don’t know.
But! eventually, we did win!! Somehow, They hooked on one of the plank and Mimi was so flexible being Michael Jackson to get the plank. AND HE DIDN’T DIE!! [ R.I.P MJ]. After that, Stiel somehow got this flying gestures to get himself on the plank and he managed to get ALL the boards, including those from the other team. Hahaha. Talk about karma. By this stage, the ghost was so crazy already that we have this urge to keep cheering. There was only like 1 minute left but we only had 1 person saved so far, then everyone started to go on the planks, We had 9 at the whistle. So, basically, WE WON!! But the lesson was to think as a team, not to compete witht the other team who are on the same company as us also or so they say. I think so. Oh, Mdm Zubaidah was taking pictures as well, siap suruh Ghosts pose lagi. Hahaha. Then, we did our awesome team cheer, which I contributed in. Hoho. So semangat by that time.
Ok2. Moving on. We had this thingy called STE IDOL, a singing competition. Oh, wait. Better put that in the next paragraph. Hahaha. Pictures first! You must be so tired reading already. Haha.
*HAISH!! I DON”T HAVE MUCH PICTURE YANG BERKAITAN.. JAP2. Pegi curi from other’s FB lu. Hahaha*
*Shit eh, nobody took any pix in class, except for celet kot, but haven’t seen the pix yet. Hahaha. Let me just post pix from the last day of the people in class!*
Hoho. I think that’s all I can get. N I didn’t even curi . Hahahaha.
==> STE IDOL <==
Ok people! Hahaha. WE had this thingy called STE Idol where in the Team stage, you have to choose a singer from the group and compete and the winning group get to represent the Class in the finals. Hahaha. I voluntarily said I want to sing for my group. I don’t know. I just felt the urge to do so. Hahaha. I wanted to sing Pernah at first, but then, Mdm Zubaidah asked me to find a duet partner in the group, so I dragged Zhong Ying, who turns out to be a good singer! Diam2 ubi berisi ya. Hahaha. STE IDOL was so nice!! Hahaha. We sang I lay my love on you by west life. Haha. Here’s the link. WaTch it!! We won!!!

Yup2. We won, but, in the finals, I didn’t get to perform with Zhong Ying cuz she said she malu at first, then, Stiel stepped up, so I performed with Stiel with the song Sampai Surga. Huhu. It was awesome you know, but nobody took the video for that performance =((. Sedih sangat2. But, we won the voted in the finals as well!! We are the STE IDOLS!! Hahahahaha. I so like performing now. Hahaha. But hey, upon Mdm Zubaidah’s request, we’re gonna make a video of us singing that song, not in front of an audience, for sure, and will post it to youtube soon! Hehe. Watch out people!.
==>FINAL BBQ NITE <==
It was damn awesome okay!! There was kambing chop, Steamboat, Durian, manggis. Weh, family members, I tasted Durian!! SEDAP PULA. hahahahahaha. The STE IDOL performances, the Facees’ performance, the dancing, the camwhoring. BEST LA WEH!!.
Hahahahahaha. Fancy ending this part with Kakak Cinta. Every meal have this different theme to it right? So all the waitresses and waiter have to wear their attires accordingly. Hahaha. Kakak Cinta was Stiel’s ehem3. Opps. Ahahaha. Jangan marah po!. Saja ja. And Kakak cinta is one of our topik bualan time makan. Hahaha.
I said once to her ” Kak, ini semua boleh ambik lebih ya?” She replied ” Oh I love you too sayang”. WTH. hahaha. So I replied “Tapi ternyata saya bisa ngambilin lebih ya kan?” She said “Ya boleh2.” And she gave me extra lekor. Weeeee. Hahahaha.
==> Learning <==
Yep. This camp have definitely gave me insights on myself. Where to improve, and where to reduce. I like the whole process of knowing yourself in the camp, knowing the areas you can improve on, to boost up the confidence level that has always been low and be able to step up as a leader. Hahaha. I love it!! The team work, the inteligence part. hahaha. Everything about it!! I’m gonna miss Ste so much. hahaha. Well, not that much la. I just love the learning process and the people that came with it! Chow people! Await my updates!
