Sy tension.. dan tengok lah sy dah buat ape huhu..

Hmm.. hari ni sy rase sedih dan kecewe dan kecik ati.. nape? Takmo citer.. tp sedey la nape org expect bende yang sy tak leh buat.

Ape sy buat?

Sy baru tukor duit kat KM sbb adik KM tu nak duit syiling. Patutnye gi la simpan bank ke dak.. tapi sbb ade duit dlm tangan, sy pun pegi Megamall. Lgpun sy lupe besday sorg student sy (bkn lupe, mmg tatau huhu..)

Tp kan, ade 2 bende yg bg senyum sy sgt la lebar ala Julia Roberts.

Yg 1st.. tadaaa..

Hehe.. yg ni dpt offer! Ghege asal RM59.90, tadi dpt RM39.90. Mule mmg tanak beli sbb nak beli adiah utk student sy je.. tp tak tahan laaaa hehe.. sbb tinggal satu je lagi. Ni pun kire display unit..

(Mati la sy klau Abah tau huhu.. Adi paham le maksud sy ni kan Adi hehe..)

Yg 2nd ialah bende yg sy dah lame tingin.. jeng³

Akhirnye!! Wpun ianye curry ayam sahaje (still kempunan kari daging!) tp MasyaAllah punye sedap! Serius.. rase mcm mak² buat! And kaler nye sgt kuning (maafkan kualiti gambar ye..).. jugak seperti mak² buat dan bukan mcm kedai² jual yg pucat lesi itu..

Dan saiznye sgt la besar.. kenyang sy!

Tu pun, sempat lagi tapau satu lagi set sblm balik dan mak cik yg jual dia food court itu gelak sambil tanye sy, "Kan ke adik ni dah makan tadi?"

Sy senyum tersipu² sahaje hehe..

So skrg sy rase sgt happy!

SSSPE ~ Water Quality Tests (Pt VII)

So there we were, menuruni bukit from the PBA waterfall. The 'downhill' trip was of course not as tiring as going uphill. Tu yg Hassan and Aqmal siap bleh 'peace' kat camera tuh..

Then we had our brunch a'la picnic style in the Botanical Garden. Picnic aje kan kitorg hehe.. ni lagi real a since it was in a real park :D The guys in green were from the Jabatan Alam Sekitar (JAS) for our next activity. Not sure if they ate with us ke tak..

Hahaha.. I REALLY like this next picture, though tak sure sape tangkap. Fattah was as usual 'memerap' then suddenly he took my hand and did a tug-of-war with it. But me, being on the higher ground and considerably 'bigger' than him, mesti la menang so kawan tak puas hati, dia ajak gang. Tu yang ade Muhaimin, Adam and others kat bwh tu but they still kalah (Ayu sedang perasan kuat!)

Then suddenly they had 'reinforcement' and I felt a push from my behind when Adib rushed to push me. Bedebab la jatuh on my butt like nangka busuk hahah.. actually the person had taken the whole process so ade la gambo I was pushed AND the picture of me on my butt but of course la I takkan buh kat sini kaaaaaaaaaaan :p

Sgt ampeh la diorg kaaan.. but I still like the picture above hehe.. so thanx to sape yg amik! Hahah.. though no thanx sbb ade gak gambo seterusnye yg agak la memalukan kaaan hehe..

Then we went to regroup a bit further on to hear the briefing from JAS. Tu pun, sambil tunggu, sempat ade budak (Adam ke?) relax bukan main je kat situ..

..and the briefing from JAS.

After that, we went to the stream to do some water quality testing with JAS.

While our own staff did the test using our own equipment jugak.. just for comparison.

The kids were asked to note down the results of the test so merate le deme mencari tempat menulis :)

..and whats this? Nape sumer org sengih while OSM was trying to capture something on his group's camera?

And tadaaa.. this was the rascal EVERYONE was trying to capture on their cameras! Chumel kan? Sgt beze from the usual monkeys 'strolling' around the Botanical Gardens.

After that, we headed towards the dirtiest river in Penang Island.. a.k.a tempat Baizurah hehehe.. jgn marah naa Bai :p

Arrived at the jetty in Sg Pinang after a 20-minute bus ride where we tried (but failed) to get some shut-eye.

Ececehhh Hanif ni.. nak dpt 'feel' ke tu?!!? :D

Though seeing the water here, takde nye sesape nak feeling kat sini.. right?

Enter the Raja Sungai, Ir Nasehir Khan!

Took us towards the end of the pier to look at the water around us.

Then we headed back to the jetty to get the results from the water quality test..

..before literally climbing up the bus to go back to USM.

Sunyi sepi bus otw back, except for the Jr Fasis (tidak termasuk Farid and Hanif) yg Innalillah punye bising! Iyer.. not MasyaAllah since that is reserved for the beauty of God's creation, but Innalillah! Seriously la you big kids ni cam budak kecik la pulak.

Arrived at USM and we had such a hard time waking up the kids. Farid and Hanif (both who got the best Jr Fasis') tido punye nyenyak (they really worked hard at being Junior Facilitators.. no wonder they won!) sampai punye susah la nak ngejutnye! Hanif even called me 'mak' when I finally managed to wake him up hahah..

..and after a yummy lunch, since the kids were well rested in the bus, it was back to scrapbooking :)

That night plak, had another session with Raja Sungai..

..then finished up on the scrapbooks and posters for the next day which was already the final day of the program. I 'forced' my group to stay-up till 12am top finish their scrapbook since they had sooooo much ideas but never finished!

Iyer, sebagai fasi, kak Ayu memang garang! :p

P/S For pictures on the PBA visit, you can see them here

Penat lum ilang..

Just got back from Kuala Woh and still haven't gotten over being exhausted (alasan je ni!) hehe.. I'll update on that later since Sedim punye update pun lum abis kan but suffice to say I enjoy the Sedim Expedition more..

Anyway, came to school and was greeted by a cute cupcake given by Irnis..

..for the birth of her second son, Ahmad Nizar Rayyan :) Thanx Irnis. I especially love the cute booties there on the cupcake hehe..

Then I went to the bank and stumbled upon a quaint gift shop yg you tak kan perasan kot sbb sgt la kecik and chumel. What did I find?


A CD holder, lembu-style! Heheh.. I likey :)

SSSPE ~ PBA Waterfall (Pt VI)

Next morning was another rise and shine moment as we had to board the bus at 7am. Brought some bihun for everyone's breakfast to eat in the bus. The journey took some time as we were heading towards the Botanical Gardens in the island of Penang so most of us managed to catch a few more winks in the bus.

..and once again "Barisan cantikkk, barisan lurusss.."

Opps, benti jap adik², amik air mineral sebotol sorang. Long hike we have ahead of us so better get your water rations ready :)

Heheh.. cam caterpillar kan.. or that game we used to play when smaller, Ibu Ayam & Anak Ayam :D Cume tadek 'musang' je kat depan tu..

So we walked..

..and walked..

..and walked..

..and walked..

..and walked..

(more like hiked la kot even if it was on paved roads hehe..)

..and finally we arrived at our destination! Yeay!

But whats this? Aiyak, kene panjat lagik ke?!?! Uwaaaaaaaaaaaa..

Sampai je kat atas, everyone found a spot to rest their tired legs. Tapi yg heran tu tgk org² tua selambe je jogging besides us hehe.. TANPE muke yg letih!

Then, as usual, had the briefing. this one by En Azizan whom I had dealt with last year for the same activity.

We were then given a guide each who would take us through the treatment plant and all the processes involved in producing the cleanest of waters. Right in front of the building, was a SHOWER?!? I'll never know what its purpose is since my guide didn't take us there :(

Then, "The wheels of the bus go round and round.. round and round.. round and round.." Heheh, tah pape tak adik² ni main. At first I was afraid they had usik certain devices but turned out those 'wheels' are no longer used, replaced by modern machinery.

Ni pulak the room where they monitor the chemical contents of the water (Betoi ka ni, Ayu?!?)

After that we were taken to the most looked-forward-to place in the plant. But at first.. Yup! You got it right, kene panjat LAGI!

..dan lagi! Sampai terase lenguh kaki² ku ini..

But the view was worth it! An undisturbed beauty of nature. Hilang penat when you see it :)

Then of course, ape gune camera? Took a snap of my group (notice I'm not in it :D) before descending..

This is the view of the plant from 'up above'

Ni plak while the kids found excuse to NOT walk another milimeter by pretending to ask questions hehe..

And lucky us, we actually got to witness the cleaning of the 'filter' in the plant. Kerumun abis la kitorg sebab tak penah tengok kan :D Was very interesting to watch all the teh-tarik-like bubbles and foam while the cleaning was carried out. It was a first for me too, not the kids je tau :D

Then ade yang took the oppurtunity to sign the guest book

Then, what would an outing do without a group photo, right? Heheh..

Next episode: Water Quality Tests

Ughh.. 'nightmare' in front of my door!

Hmm.. asyik citer pasal Sedim je kan, this entry a bit different.

I'm in school, wanting to finish up a few tasks before going to Kuala Woh (not sure of the spelling, aci?) on tomorrow morning (or maybe late tonight ~ depends on the outcome of our discussion nnt!). Huhu, nak bg ilang rase bersalah la tu sbb nak cuti Friday and Monday haha..

Anyway, I came back from my class as usual around 10.15pm and since I had planned to go to school, I just parked outside my house, wanting a quick dash inside to pray before going out again. As I neared the front door of the house, I noticed something unusual right in front of the door.

Squinting (I don't actually have a 20-20 vision kaaaan), I realized it was something quite big (about one and a half 'penumbuk').. and it had eyes!!!

Aaarrrrrggghhhhhhh! Not you again!!!!

God! There must be something wrong with my house nowadays. Only last week, on Wednesday jugak a smaller version of it had entered my house and I had to ask for assistance from Salleh (lucky for me since they just moved in two doors away) to throw it away.. ughhh!

..and today! A gigantic version of it. Even Arep who helped to shoo it away this time was suprised at its size.. giler tul! Why?!?!

And of all things, my next door neighbour pun kuar sibuk nak tau what happened. Arep dah gelak², sy dah termalu coz all this while sy sgt sombong dengan mereka hahah.. and paling memalukan when I heard him go inside his house telling his housemates, "K**** je..!"

Sheeshhh.. that teaches me to run away from my neighbours kan!

Sib baik ade Arep.. tenkiu cik adik!

*Shudders at the memory of it*

SSSPE ~ Herbarium & Talentime (Pt V)

After the EJW, we went back to the 'cafe' for the Herbarium. The first time I heard the word Herbarium, I was also confused.. amende la kannnn, ala² aquarium jek bunyinye. Turned it, we had to pick two leaves and sorta sew in into an info card. The leaves were supposed to be upside and downside up so we can see the differance in the leaves on both sides. Then you had to write down the species and family of it (which reminds me of Hassan hahahaha..)

Last year ALL CMs had done one each except me so this year I was determined to do one. I had picked up two leaves yg saya rasa cantik abih la tu hehe.. but in the end had to give them to someone in my group since their leaves had withered (sapa suh hangpa ganaih sangaaaaaaaat aihhhh.. abih la kak Ayu tak leh buat jugak tahun ni sob.. sob..)

Anyway, jom tengok ape kitorg buat :)

First was a quick briefing by the rangers on what to do. Sy ngan berlagaknye tak dengar sgt sebab dah tau hehe.. Then we had to assist our groups in the making of the info cards.

Tu kak Nab cekak pinggang tgk sape tak buat tu hehe.. :D

Some almost complete ones.. memasing tgk kiri kanan wanna compare with their friends hehe..

Farid yg wpun dah buat jugak last year, still bersungguh-sungguh wat this year. Chaiyuk²! Ni one of the best junior fasi for this year. I liked him dari last year lagik. Just look at him helping the kids do theirs :)

This is a complete one from Sha's group

This one plak by Aiman who wanted his to be different from the others :)

Then some winners were announced. Here is Adib getting his prize. The others were Hadi, Aisyah, Afiqah and OSM.

After some fun with the herbarium, we had our lunch before heading back to USM. To once again la bebudak ni kene beratur..

"Barisan cantik, barisan luruuuuss.. angkat tangan, kaki rapat.. lurus barisaaann" Though otw back, terdapat lagu dan ikrar 'baru' led by Fattah. Sungguh la ampeh budak ini, abis nameku dijual!

Sampai je kat bas, upenye CMs kene tolong buh beg dlm bus la pulak since the kids sumer dah naik bus and tanak turun (kes berebut bus!) Sabo je laaaa..

Arrived at USM after everyone had a chance to sleep on the two-hour ride back. Then had some tea before we asked the students to continue with their scrapbook and discuss what they wanted to do for talentime. Around 6pm, we retired to our rooms to freshen up and pray.

That night, all headed to our school. The talentime was to be held there. Sampai je, since our VIP had not arrived yet, the room was a total chaos. Ade yg bising bersembang laa.. ade yang hafal skrip.. ..ade yang siapkan scrapbook!

Ni group Sha yg same je ngan fasi nye sempat je nmpk camera :p

Ni plak were the junior fasis getting ready for THEIR performance!

While jauh nun di tepi school, we CMs pun dok practice for our performance :D

The teachers were appointed the judges for the performances. Thus, started the talentime with the first group, Dragonfly..

Second group, Pagoda Snail..

Ni my group, Hydra, getting ready to start..

..before doing their own performance :) (Group sendiri mesti la buh gambo lebih satu :p)

Fourth group, Crab or better known as Crabby Patty in Mazlan's books hehe..

..and final group Mayfly!

This picture ni sy mcm tau je mase bile di ambil, judging from they way OSM and his friend tgh tgk belakang. The final group, with collabration ngan their fasi telah jugak menjual my name during their performance haha.. Ni Faizal yg ngaku ek.. huh! Sabo je laaa.. Takpe, ade ubi ade batassss.. hehe..

Then it was the junior fasi's turn to perform. The BEST performance of the night, may I add. Rugi tak leh masuk bertanding kan!

When it was our turn, sekali lagi my name dijual haha.. actually, time ni I felt like wanting so much for the floor to swallow me as the kids were chanting my name ramai² hahah.. but cam kate Arep, skrg dah jadi a very nice memory! Hmm, he's right.. but DURING that time, I really wanted to run!!!

So then, it was our turn, the CMs of the project!

Okay what kitorg nyanyi heheh..

And the winner of the night? Hydra laaaaaa :p

Other pictures can be seen here and here for EJW and Herbarium respectively. giler byk gambo woooo :D
