On the 16th to 19th of July, I went to my first ever camp in another country. It was a camp organized by the church that I attend here in Perth. Comments on the camp? It was great. I really felt God's blessing upon us the whole camp. I can probably rename it into Blessing camp instead of CYPG camp. I'll write on why I think so later. But first. Let me tell you guys something more about this camp.

This camp was held at a location known as Leschenaultia camp site. Long name I know, very hard to pronounce too. The camp site is an one hour drive from the church. One and a half if your slow. Oh yeah. The camp site owner is a Christian, so its good for us too. The camp site isnt bad, there was no water and electricity for almost the whole of the first day. But no matter, its a blessing in disguise. The most amazing thing about this camp site, is that it actually has hot water for showers. Out of all the camps I have been to. None and absolutely none had hot water for showers. God bless. Oh yeah almost forgot. The theme for this camp was "我的团契,我的家".

Remember how I said there was no electricity and water for almost the whole of the first day? And how I said its a blessing in disguise? You might think I am crazy. But I can tell you, its really a blessing in disguise. If you guys know what the theme is about. It talks about being a family and loving one another. Through having no electricity and water we really felt the love and familism(is this even a word?). I think I see question marks appearing on my readers. Ok, here's the deal. Each group was suppose to cook their own dinner last night. The plan was for us to find the hidden ingredients then cook it. But due to the slight setback of no electricity and water. It wasnt possible. So in the end, we were given all the ingredients, a pot of water and a hint on what to cook. That's all. Imagine, a pot of water only. We need to wash our ingredients with that water, clean our utensils and so on with just a pot of water. How difficult is that?

Difficult yes, but its possible. So in the end, me and Kenneth's group decided to team-up to make one large feast. With no water and electricity you would imagine every group member would be whining or complaining here and there the whole time. Amazingly they dint, they did complain at the start but stop after about five minutes and just started preparing and cooking. You can really see the God's blessing in disguise here. Through this preparation progress we bonded together so much better. You could feel that we are just one big family in Christ. Instead of individuals. It was just great. If there was a chance, I would like to bring this activity(minus the no electricity and water part) back to my church in Miri. Its just too wonderful to pass. One of the blessing from the camp.

The second day, there was games to play. Wont talk too much about the games, its not exactly very important. The games was great, 4 man tug of war and a capture the flag style of water fights. Epic. That will be all about the games. In the evening, we were asked to get ready at around 5pm to be whisked away to a secret location. That location being Karakamia wildlife park. Due to some communication problems. The person who was suppose to lead us to the park went off without waiting for us. Because of that, all of the remaining cars lost their way to the park. We searched for the way to the park and found it in the end thanks to God's grace. But we were like 30 minutes late. Hey, we arrived dint we? All's good. Blessing number two.

After visiting the wildlife park, we went back to the camp site for dinner. Dont worry, not cooking it ourselves this night. While having dinner, Adrian started the camp fire outside. It was meant for our sharing that night. Just minutes before the sharing, it started to drizzle. We were all worried that our plans would be ruined. So me and a few other brothers prayed for good weather that night. Once we finished praying, and stepped out onto the campfire. There was no rain in sight. The dark clouds in the sky even cleared, showing us a wonderful night sky with lots of beautiful stars. We marveled at God's great creation and God's grace on this camp during the sharing. Another blessing from God.

There wasn't anything interesting happening on the last day. So I'll skip that. But when I sit back and reflect about this camp. I can really feel God's ever loving grace. How he blesses us in the strangest and most unthinkable way. I am sure many of the camp attendees went back with a lot more than when they came. God bless.


PS. I forgot to add that I forgot to bring my toothbrush during these three days of camp. I ended up using my finger to brush my teeth. Very unique experience. But not recommended.

I was watching Bones last night. And some of the comments that they made is rather interesting. Well, the episode was about the murder of a top researcher at a particular college. The motto of the college goes something like this. To Eternity, To *something*, to the future. They argue that science is about researching and studying for the future. Deeming anything that has to do with studying the pass such as carbon dating artifacts, Paleontology and so on, not a field science at all.

Since high school, they have thought us that the definition of Science is "The study of natural phenomena". In short, anything under the sun or anything above the sun for that matter is but a science in its own right. So is science suppose to be up and forward, or should science be in all directions?

Personally, I somewhat agree with what the show has to say. Up and forward. To the future and beyond. Feels so much like Buzz Lightyear's saying from Toy Story "To infinity and beyond!!!". If science wasnt about the future, I doubt that we as human beings would become what we are now. Computers, mobile phones and so on. Its all because scientist are obsessed with the future. Bigger harddisk space, smaller mobile phones, faster ram, farther out into space. Its all about the future. Space exploration is part of what Science should be. You may ask why would it be? Simply because space exploration can show us so many new things. Maybe we can mine meteorites in space? Maybe we can live on another planet? It possibility are endless. Science is all about these. The future and space.

Paleontology and carbon dating as such is just about the past. What has happened before. The origins of life, how old a certain artifact is. Its about the past. It doesnt improve humanities lifestyle at all. It just gives answers to questions that has been asked for generations. Like carbon dating. Its about identifying what timeline a certain artifact belongs to, so that it can be more well placed in human history. Because of this, I would believe that carbon dating is a subset of History. Paleontology is to figure out what happened to the great dinosaurs and so on. Is it necessary for our daily life? Not exactly, It answer questions. Not give us a more comfortable life.

In short, I agree with what the show has voiced out for us. Science should be about the future and beyond. Not the past. So what do you think folks?

You guys are officially OBB(Orang Bodoh Bodoh)

I just saw the news that Science and Maths would be reverted back to be teaching in BM rather than English. This is one of the most biggest bullshit ever. If you want your country to increase their English proficiency, then why do such a thing? Its hell bullshit man. Re-introducing English Literature and have classes on grammar and composition? That wont make a difference people. People we just take those subjects as a useless subject like how History and Moral is now. Wake up man. How come out country is being run by a bunch of idiots. Especially the Educational department. And we want to be a modern country by 2020. Fat chance.

Keep up the good work guys, keep up the good work.

On with the AWHYO clan. This time, its AWHYO|$$MoneY$$. After this, theres four more members to go. Finally. Hehe. First up. Photos as per tradition.

Hei. What do you expect from someone whose nick is $$MoneY$$??? Of course she looks like money. lol.

Enough with the jokes. Heres the real AWHYO|$$MoneY$$

See that watch she is holding? Its the present given on behalf of the whole AWHYO clan during her birthday last year. Which is just two weeks away. Glad I am not in Miri or she would be hinting for her present. Phew. Birthday message would suffice.

If you havent already notice from the nickname that has been given to her. She is just so damn money face. If you borrow money from her, she will remind you every single day until you repay it. So be warn on what she would do for money. Also, she wont take anything less than RM100 for present. So yeah, thats a hint for anyone planning to get her any presents.

Money face aside. AWHYO|$$MoneY$$ is a very very very smart person. Straight As for SPM. With that, comes celebration. Guess what? She paid for part of the celebration. Which I can tell you, is extremely rare. Its like finding a dodo bird in Africa. I must thank her though. She introduced me to Sri Maju tuition center, which netted me my A1 in Physics and A2 in Chemistry. AWHYO|$$MoneY$$ is now doing her Matriculation in Labuan. A somewhat great achievement I must say, since Matriculation is very hard to get into especially for Chinese.

Last year, just after the first mock exam for our SPM. AWHYO|$$MoneY$$ got into a car accident. Due to that, her leg is still not fully recovered yet. But coming along fine. I think anyway. We were all really shocked when we heard that she got into an accident. We were even going to rush to the hospital to see her. But she was going to have a surgery when we decided to go. So we waited until the next day. Thank God she is all ok. Just her leg was injured and bones fractured. Besides that, all is ok.

I guess thats all i can think of now. Tired. I'm off. See yaz peeps.

Time to continue my long overdue post about my AWHYO clan. This time, its our own air assault leader AWHYO|Mr^Daryl!!!!!!!! First things first. Photo!!!!!!!

As you can see in the photo. AWHYO|Mr^Daryl is checking to make sure our best fighter airplane is in tip-top condition for the next flight. You better make sure its in tip top condition man. Dont want it to crash.

AWHYO|Mr^Daryl is very smart guy. Straight As in SPM. Almost straight A1s too. But due to the government's stupid system. Decided not to give him straight A1s. Blame the stupid government Malaysia has. Favorite subject has got to be English. I think anyway. His English is as good as mine. Hehe. But his is better than mine. He was part of the Chung Hua debate team for two years. So dont think you can beat him in English. Even I cant. Bryan couldnt too. lol.

What else about AWHYO|Mr^Daryl? He is a good pal of mine. Just as much of a techie as I do. He owns an iPhone!!!!! Which I dont. Drools with jealousy. Hehe. I will have to steal it when i meet him. Dont tell him I told you guys but. Hehe.

Oh yeah. One thing that he just loves is Football. The soccer football, not the aussie football or the rugby type football. The real football. Everyday you go to his class. You can hear him, AWHYO|Mr^Eric and AWHYO|Mr^Bryan talking about the latest match that is happening. The best goals. The player transfers and so on. Which I have no idea what they are talking about. Sobs. Sad AWHYO|Mr^Blue~.

AWHYO|Mr^Daryl has a very interesting hobby. That is he likes to fly planes. Not real planes though. Computer simulated ones. The ones on computer. He even bought a joystick with force feedback for it. Cool eh? This is probably due to the fact that his dream is to be a pilot. But due to some unknown circumstances he cannot pursue his dream. I find it sad actually, because I cant get him to help me buy the latest games next time. lol. Joking, just feel sad that someone cant follow his dreams. But all the best my friend. We're all rooting for you.

Its AWHYO|Mr^Daryl birthday is in 10 days. AWHYO|Mr^Blue~ here would like to give a be-earlied (is that even a word?) birthday wish to him. "Happy Birthday Daryl Soon. Good luck in whatever your doing. The gang is here for you."

And thats all for AWHYO|Mr^Daryl. I'm off. See yaz.
