2011, October 29th – Campfire Saturday, Oct 29 2011 

On the 29th of October 2011, the group had their annual campfire. This time the campfire had slight changes, we decided to go eco-friendly. Therefore, our campfire was held in the school hall with no fire, but a campfire made out of light bulbs that shined through the night.

Whooosh !!

Well, before the campfire started, it would be bad to leave our guests who arrived earlier bored waiting. Therefore, we gave them a tour to our scout den. Many scouts from other schools aren’t as fortunate as us to have our own scout den in the school so it was an eye opener for them.

As soon as all the guests arrived, the campfire started. It was one of the first campfire with so many attendance from other schools. There were scouts and also girl guides who were invited. We started our campfire according to tradition like how we always did every year. Then, the performance started. As usual, the seniors performed the Hakka dance and the boy scouts performed the Zulu and Stick dance which they’ve been practicing for weeks. Great response were given by the crowd and some old scouts complimented the seniors for their spirit in the Hakka dance.

Arahi ! Araho ! Araha!

After that, we sang scout songs, had fun with some games, and as usual, time flies when you’re happy. It’s time to go home. Many of our boys made new friends through this campfire and they were reluctant to bid farewell.

Some happy ones took a small group photo before leaving.

2011, June 11th – Selayang Paintball Game Sunday, Jun 12 2011 

Paintball? Yay! Well, it ain’t that simple to begin with. Someone had to take the trouble to organise a group of Rovers who almost always have conflicting schedules. This time, the someone was Mak Aik Lam. Not only that, apparently we even got a deal with the place.

We met at KC Den before leaving for Selayang Mall. Of course, upon arriving and waiting for our turn, we did some catching up with each other, plenty of jokes and laughing around. Our turn finally came and there was a short safety briefing by an insructor. We each got our own body armour and paintball “guns”, or markers.

Game on! First round was a team elimination match, we divided the teams by shirt colours, whites vs darks. After a rather mild exchange of paintball pellets, the round was over (someone kindly comment who won, I have a poor memory). Oh, a bit about the venue. It was in a multi-storey carpark, where a part of it had been fenced using nets and the floor was covered in a layer of sawdust, presumably to reduce impact. Barrels, wooden makeshift walls served as cover.

Secound round was a capture-the-flag round. With haphazard strategy planning, gained through FPS games, we dived straight right in. This was a fierce round, both teams not letting the other take the flag in the middle of the arena. The final round was an epic team death-match. It was a round mainly to expend our excess ammo. Most aggressive round so far, with plenty of “Rambo-ing”. When it ended, we checked for injuries and it was not so bad, with most having bruises and some lacerations.

After much fun and adrenaline, someone brought up supper and ta-da! a spur-of-the-moment trip to Sungai Besi “wan tan mee” to round up the day. Well, for those who can’t make it, there is always next time. The end.

2011 May 28 – Saga Hill Hike Sunday, May 29 2011 

The seniors of 10th KL went for a hike at Taman Saga, Ampang. We also invited the scouts from S.M.K Confucian to join us for the hike to deepen the bonding between the two troops.

The Entrance

We used public transport including LRT, RapidKL Public bus. This gave a chance to many scouts to try them out as some of them never tried public transport before.

At the starting of the hike all the seniors were saying that this hike would be a piece of cake but as soon as they were in the trail, they started complaining that it was too tiresome. Of course we won’t be just doing physical training just to train, there was a secret reward for them – Waterfall ( MINI ).

On the trail

At 11:38:am, The seniors arrived at the waterfall (Mini). They stripped into their underwear as they weren’t told that they would be going to play in a Waterfall (mini) . They relaxed and rejuvenated their stamina.

Not long after that, it was time to go and the skies were getting dark, not because that it was getting late, but it was going to rain. It started raining heavily when we were only half way back from the waterfall (mini). Everyone was soaked and the journey continues as there were nothing that could be done. Like what Mr. Wan Heng Yuen always say, everyone complains about the weather but no one can do anything about it, We walked on basically like playing a slide. The seniors slide down the slippery trails on their way back and they successfully reached the entrance of the trail safely but some sustained some leech bites. Then, the seniors went back to school.

2011 March 16-19 Fraser’s Hill camp Monday, Mar 21 2011 

On 16th of March 2011 to the 19th of March 2011, the senior scouts of 10th KL had an wonderful camp in Fraser’s Hill. There was about 26 scouts(including scouters and rovers) and a teacher advisory Ms. Angie who attended this fun-filled an exciting camp.

On the 16th, which is the first day,  the seniors gathered at KC den on 7:30 to get ready the the equipments needed for the camp while waiting for the arrival of bus. Due to traffic jam, we waited for the bus for 1 an a half hours until the arrival of bus. We then boarded the bus with the equipments and our harvest sacks. We arrived at our camp site– SJK(c) Bukit Fraser by 1130.Then, we unloaded the equipments and R.J Mitchell patrol was in charge of our lunch for that day. The menu was Mee Sedaap with eggs. The meal was awesome due to the starving from the morning. Later on, we went for a hike at the Herman’s trail about 1430. Unfortunately, it started to rain and the pupils are shivering, but we still manage to finish the hike. Then, we went back to our campsite and rested and some played football on the field beside our campsite. It was real fun when you try to play football in the midst. At 1730, the patrol in charge which is the Guy Gibson patrol prepared sour-sweet fish and the fried rice. We then packed our needs for a short  trekking at the Bishops trail at 10 o’clock. We trekked for an hour plus under the moon light and someone suspected that we had gone to the wrong trek, due to the dark night, everyone started to gain panic and we went back trek. After we went back to the school, we had our lights off at 1230p.m.

17th of March2011, we woke at 0600 and washed our self up and prepared to have our  breakfast. We then had our lessons on surviving skills. We went through a tough training on lighting up a fire using only twigs through friction. Though everyone of us failed. but it was rather an experience for us to know how hard its is to set up an fire if you do not have the knowledge. We also learned about the skills in using GPS as the guide when we are lost in anywhere. In the late afternoon, we had our exciting football game in the midst, how wonderful it is. In the evening, we had our wonderful dinner which is barbecue, we had some grilled chicken and some satay.  Every one of us are satisfied with the food, it was an enjoyable time. After our dinner, we had a small campfire from the used charcoals, it was cooling from the breeze on the mountain. Singing sessions and sketches were performed by some of us. 1130, lights off.

18th of March, In the early morning and even before the birdies are out for there food,we already packed our equipment needed for  the hike. We had our breakfast which are sausages with honey and egg toasted bread. It was not really enough but still we managed get some energy for the hike. by 7 everyone of us was given a short briefing by our scout master, Mak Aik Lam about the trail and then we had a warm up session conducted by the Daniel Lee. We started our hike later on and the trail was rather muddy than to say as slippery. It was fascinating because the plants and animals we saw are really rare and we are glad that we saw an ant plant. We reached the  the mountain top at 1145 after hard climb on a more than 80 degree steep ground. We our had our wonderful view on the top but the food was rather attracting compared to the scene! We ate our sardine and breads and had some water. After that, we back tracked and reached the trail entrance at 4 and there was a light rain. Heng Yuen and Zhi Hao fetch us back and we prepare for our dinner~ the Chu Han’s homemade Hainan Chicken rice. After the dinner, we had another campfire but is was not as fun as testerday as many of us were exhausted due to the long long hike. 1130 lights off.

19th of March, we woke up and had pastas . We then cleaned the campsite and had the flag down. Later on, a photo session was held and we boarded the bus and headed back to KL. by 3 p.m we reached the school and pupils went back in their separated ways.

Public Speaking Training Program Thursday, Feb 24 2011 

Public speaking is presenting your thoughts and feelings in a meaningful way. Often the wrong perception that only people involved in sales, marketing or mass media need to learn public speaking is seen. However, the truth is that individuals from all walks of life have to speak in public at one time or the other. Seeing the importance of public speaking, 10th KL Rovers has taken the initiative to organise a public speaking course for all the Rover Crew members, Senior Troop Patrol Leader and all the young scouters. Before we proceed with more plannings, we would like to hear your response on this training program. The details will be as follows.

Date: 12 and 13 March 2011

Time: 9.00 a.m to 5.00 p.m with lunch and tea break in between

Venue: To be confirmed again but most probably would be in Hotel Malaya

Fees: Around RM50 per person covering the 2 days course, 1 tea break per day and a certificate

For your infomation, a public speaking course outside will cost you as much as few hundred RM. Before we make any further planning, please tell us how interested are you in this program. You may post to our Facebook event page HERE or leave a comment below this post. Please get back to us latest by 26th of February 2011. Thank you.
