幸福的怡保之旅

由於太久沒更新blog了,我相信我的文筆也生疏了許多,故雙語版的就沒寫了……

6-6-2017(星期二)

處理了早餐,回家收拾好小行李後,我們便于上午10時(準確來説是上午10時剛出Rawang Tol)出發前去我們的目的地——怡保!那個時候我原本預測我們會在一個小時半到達怡保,可是由於安全起見,我將車速一直最快維持在每小時100公里,時間來説當然拖長了……我們到達怡保的時候,已經是中午12時了……

怡保有很多地方好玩、好走、好游以及好吃,但由於我們來怡保的天數只有兩天一夜,而且我來怡保的目的地只有一個(先賣個關子不說),所以其他的地方(包括吃)我也沒有什麽在意……

問題來了,我女友就說既然來到了怡保,那就要吃它馳名的食物啦!因此我們的第一站食物,剛過了Ipoh Tol就特意去的——老黃芽菜雞!畢竟是午餐時間嘛……


▲兩人分的芽菜雞

erm……該怎麽説好呢?這件其實我也吃過不少次了,我從小時候的畢業旅行、中學的畢業旅行、大學的自助旅行、以及工作的帶隊旅行都來過這家吃,可能間隔太久沒有來吃,縂覺得每一次吃的味道都不一樣……

而這一次我是自己駕車來,第一次駕車過來當然人參也不熟,地也不熟啦,我就找了個附近的車位泊了下去,還有個好心的老uncle幫我看位子,我就施捨了RM3給他。然後我和女友就去吃芽菜雞,順便買餅乾土產回去。

回到我的車前時……

干!

結果回來我中了SAMAN!老Uncle你坑了我!

平時我在KL都是不給錢泊車的嘛,來到這裡竟然就中了SAMAN!不過還好是RM20,我假假底還是付得起這20大洋,但是第一天才剛來到怡保一個小時就中了SAMAN心情當然是很不好……

我心不甘情不願地駕車去Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh(還好不遠而已),準備還那RM20的SAMAN,我還特地找了一個角落,也不給錢地泊了車下來……然後我就步行到Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh的辦公室去。

干!

竟然是休息時間!那個時候我去的時間是中午1時30分,那裏竟然休息到中午2時!
到了齋戒月你們的休息效率就大大地提高了嗎!?

而且還是中午4時關門!如果我去了別的地方趕不回來我不沒辦法還SAMAN了?我明天就回去KL了!

原本想在旁邊的廣場草場等這半小時的,可是那邊的泊車是要錢的!我來這裡一天而已,才不會爲了這一天就去買什麽鬼coupon,所以我只好去這個地方逛……



erm……明明我大學時來這裡(大約10年前)是個沒落的廣場啊……就好像KL的金河、Lot 10那種,難道在這幾年内竟然大改裝修了?

來到怡保沒有去那些所謂的「名勝」,竟然逛Shopping Mall,不知說出去會不會給人笑死……逛到中午3時,我和女友再度去Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh,這次去就有開。當然,我還是找了一個角落,不給錢地把車泊了下來……

我還SAMAN的時候,那個官員沒有說什麽,好像這是每天都發生的事情那樣。不過他看到我的SAMAN單後,稍微把我的SAMAN單拉近了點看,可能人老了眼睛也老花了。

就這樣,我還了SAMAN RM5.00。

沒錯,就是RM5.00!

哇哈哈哈哈哈——!!

浪費了這幾個小時後,我們就去酒店Check-in。我們住的酒店是Hotel Pi,外表看起來不錯,裏面的話……見仁見智吧。住一晚RM100,而且我是上網作預訂房間,沒有給過任何其他費用(或許包在那RM100裏面了),這RM100是Queen Size Bed,有冷氣、免費無綫上網、免費泊車位,只是沒包早餐(有我也不要)。

由於我來怡保只有一個目的地,對於其他地方我就沒有什麽興趣,我就和女友在酒店房裏等到晚上時間(感覺好像難爲了她)。

結果事後她竟然對我說:你在酒店偷吃!

我沒話好説……是沒有錯,我是在酒店偷吃……

剛才中午買的花生麻薯啊!反正你剛才在顧著看電視和玩電話。

又不是偷吃其他東西……如果是的話我還得了搞不好以後在怡保乞食了……

最後女友還把這件事告訴我媽媽……所以說,事情說一半不說一半會有杯具發生的。

不了,這種小插曲說多了會短命幾十年的,還是說重點吧。

傍晚!我們走路來到了我女友一直讚不絕口的「糖水街」。來到這條街後也發生了一個小插曲事件,還是不說了……一小時半後,傍晚7時,我們再度來到「糖水街」。我們找了個位子坐下就點了小食。

糖水街顧名思義就是一條小街,旁邊有小檔口,出名的就是糖水,不過我沒order,我女友就叫了一碗腐竹薏米白果來喝,我也趁機喝了兩口,還不錯。

食物方面我就叫了一碗牛腩面和一盤Rojak,女友則叫了一碗咖喱面。


▲由於牛腩面太好吃了,我吃到最後才想起要拍照

牛腩面,好吃!我對此讚不絕口,牛腩的柔嫩,以及其湯汁的甘甜,不大不小的河粉分量,和另外要配的辣椒,實在太好吃了!

可惜我女友不吃牛肉,可惜了一道美食……明明我告訴她說:反正觀音都不在,可以吃一兩口的。

就這樣,我們在怡保的第一天,驚險地度過了。

7-6-2017(星期三)

第二天早晨8時,我們從酒店步行出去傳説中的「二奶巷」。其實在女友的渲染下,我們去的並不是二奶巷,而是街尾的一間茶餐室——天津茶餐室!這間茶餐室如果你在網絡搜查的話,也有不少網頁甚至部落客都有介紹呢!

我們用神速找了個漂亮的位子坐了下來後,我們便點了茶水,我也點了一份燉蛋,因爲網友的介紹。


▲咖啡與燉蛋

我女友說燉蛋有點普通,我吃了後也覺得麻麻地而已。與此同時,我就去叫了我最喜歡的Satay,而我就讓女友去叫這裡最好吃的河粉。

Satay我是叫了;而河粉檔那個時候還沒開……過了十幾分鈡,Satay上桌了,我女友眼尖看見河粉檔開了便趕緊去叫了河粉。


▲豬肝、豬腸、豬肉、雞肉 Satay

等了一段時間,茶餐室的人潮也越來越多……


用香港的英文來説,果然是——People mountain people sea!

而我這裡的桌上,也將satay、satay醬、燉蛋吃完了,可是河粉還沒上桌。


剛好那個時候我和河粉檔的印尼外勞四目交匯!

就這樣,芽菜先上桌~~


芽菜也好吃!吃了幾口,河粉也上桌了。


我:erm……你叫多少碗河粉啊?
女友:三碗啊。
我:可是怎麽都是大碗……
女友:兩大一小,沒問題的。以前我吃的時候小小碗的,所以這次叫大的。
我:我覺得我們會吃不完咧……
女友:沒問題的,搞不好你還會搶我的河粉吃呢!
我:……

河粉和湯汁是好吃沒有錯啦,可是竟然吃三碗……

更沒想到的是,我們竟然吃得完……

脹死了。

回酒店路途中,我們有經過一條河,我順便拍下了這河邊風景:



▲這是近打河(Kinta River),不會大條,但相當長

我們回到酒店後便收拾行李,準備check out,而我的計劃是必須趕在下午五時之前到達Rawang,不然碰上放工時間我看就要花很長的時間來回家了。

從酒店check out後,我就去我的最終目的地——地質博物館!

地質博物館 Geology Museum,是專門展示石頭的博物館。爲什麽我要來這個地方呢?當然有很多原因。最大的原因就是剛好我們初中科學的教科書上有說到這方面内容,我就想到關於説石頭與礦物會很沉悶,就看看這地質博物館有什麽是和教科書有關聯的,以後可作作戶外教學之類的。

當然我對這地質博物館有興趣的另一個原因是之前在日本參觀過這樣的博物館,令我大開眼界。身為科學老師,也有考慮到如果學生們在一定的年齡時有某方面的求知欲的話,可帶他們來看看增廣見聞。當然前提是必須要有一個比較熟悉這方面的老師或者專家來帶領,不然的話會很沉悶的。畢竟看的都是不會説話的石頭……


▲之前在日本參觀的地質博物館
(按這裡可看我在日本的旅行)


▲馬來西亞的地質博物館

這間地質博物館,我相信全馬只有一間吧……

我和女友與櫃檯的官員打了個招呼後,就進去了這間博物館,結果一開始竟然被恐怖的吼叫聲嚇到!


▲原來有這只的模型

裏面有展示什麽東西,我就不一一說出來了,免得我「劇透」(好像說了出來呢?)。

若是要説化石的話,在馬來亞半島就難找了。如果熟知歷史的話,古人——爪哇人都是在印尼那裏被發現,那個時候的馬來半島應該還沒出現吧……但海底生物的化石還是能找到些的……


結果我也看到現在初中教科書裏的一些知識也有在這裡展示呢!


▲火山岩、沉積岩、變質岩的形成


▲硅酸鹽、碳酸鹽、硫酸鹽岩石

還有不少的水晶、石英的展示。



還有珍珠呢!


先是這些礦物(馬來西亞都有的)的展示,過後就説明馬來西亞的採集礦物,裏面還有採錫米、煤礦、地下水的樣本解釋(這我就不放圖了)。

后段半的路我看到這個:


▲一個馬來西亞地圖上有很多LED燈


▲我打開了「Light Metals」(輕金屬)的燈


▲我打開了「Precious Metals」(金、銀、白金)的燈

這個就是馬來西亞的礦物所在地。我在這裡還看到「Radioactive Elements」和「Rare & Rare-Earth Elements」呢……原來馬來西亞也有這樣的東西,只是不為多人所知而已。

我走完這整個博物館,只花了20分鐘。

20分鐘。

沒錯,就是20分鐘而已。

當然,因爲裏面所展示的東西大多數我都知道了,換句話說我是知道有關知識。据我所知,能用這樣的速度走完這整個博物館,只有兩個理由——以就是前面我提到的,我是知道相關知識,看的東西容易明白;另一種理由就是,可能你完全沒有相關的知識,不知道這些是什麽,就走馬看花地走過……

我女友是因爲知道下圖這方面的知識,我也拍了下來:


▲本地瓷磚

就這樣,我來怡保的目的就達成了。而那個時候時間也差不多了,我和女友就上車回吉隆坡去了……

Pulau Tuba露營 Camp on Tuba Island


這次是一篇遊記。爲什麽我會參與這個活動團,無不外是因爲某些高層不要去就燒到我們這些小的來,反正我的課應該趕得及,加上我對這個團有興趣,我也不反對去了(反正我也不能拒絕)。這是一個由Wlderness Malaysia所舉辦的一個四天三夜活動,主要是培養學生們在苛刻環境内生存的能力、挨苦、團員之間的合作能力和少許的領導能力。而我扮演的角色除了是帶隊老師以外,同時也是一個觀察者,看看這個活動到底是如何進行、是否真的對學生們帶來一定的好處。
This is a travel note. Why I joined this activity team? The reason was some higher management DIDN’T WANT to go there and passed this “mission” to us (junior). It was not a matter for me because I can finish my teaching on schedule and I am interested on this kind of program, so I was ok to join it (with the other words, they got the power to refuse but I/we actually CANNOT REFUSE). This 4 Days 3 Nights program was held by an organization which was called Wilderness Malaysia. The objectives of this program were to train the students’ ability to live in harsh environment, to develop teamwork among teammates and to build their leadership. For my role, I was one of the lead teachers and also an observer. I had to observe what activities were included in this program and was this program really helpful for students.

第一天(31/8

First day (31/8)

早上5點,在曾老師的協助之下,我和另一個帶隊老師陳老師三人一起到了LCCT KL/KLIA2。等待到其他兩位老師——張老師和葉老師,以及40位團員全部到達機場後,我們便在關卡前作最後的集合、檢查、和出發前的拍照。接著,上飛機出發!
With Mr. Ting’s helps, another lead teacher Mdm. Tan and I reached LCCT KL/KLIA2 at 5.00 am. When all lead teacher (Mr. Chiang, Ms. Yap, Mdm. Tan and me) and 40 participants arrived, we gathered in front of the custom and did the last checked. We took group photos, then boarded the plane!

▲我們乘搭的飛機 The plane that we took

大約830分,我們抵達了Pulau Langkawi的機場,下機,和負責人Christina接觸了後,我們一行44人便乘搭巴士到小碼頭去,然後轉搭小遊艇去我們真正的活動地點——Pulau Tuba
We arrived Langkawi Island around 8.30am. After met the person in charged Ms. Christina, we went to the jetty by bus then took small boots to our “final destination”: - Tuba Island.

▲在碼頭的路牌 Tanda Papan at Tuba Island

我們被分成兩大組,一組二十人,而每一組由兩位帶隊老師負責。我和陳老師是第二組的負責老師,而張老師和葉老師則是第一組的。所以接下來我寫的都是以第二組的活動記錄,因爲我這幾天都是跟著第二組活動,至於另一組……我就不知道了。我們第二組是由兩個人(Trainer)帶領——K先生和A先生。分組了以後就放下行李,學生們的電話和錢包交給主辦單位保管,接著就是開始破冰,最然都是來自同一間學校,同一個年級,但還是有些人都互不認識,互動也相當少。在K先生的帶領下,20位學生圍圈圈坐了下來,然後開始作自我介紹。除了玩一些小遊戲以外,兩位Trainer也要求第二組組員想組名、口號。
We were divided to 2 groups. There were 20 students and 2 teachers in each group. Mdm. Tan and I were arranged in 2nd group while Mr. Chiang and Ms. Yap were arranged in 1st group. I followed the 2nd group in these few days, therefore what I wrote was about 2nd group’s activities. For the other group story… I don’t know lar. There were two Trainers Mr. K and Mr. A led the 2nd group. After putting down the luggage and the students passed their mobile phone and wallet to the organizer, the 2nd group started ice breaking activity. Although the students came from same school and same year, most of them still didn’t know each other and less communication. Under Mr. K’s leading, 20 students sat in round shape and started to do self-introduction. Besides playing some games, the trainers wanted the group came out with a group name.

經過一番討論和建議後,以下就是第二組的組名和口號:
After discussion, the below was the group name and slogan:



“B for !”                “Botak!”

“B for !”                “Best!”

“North South East West!”

“Botak is the Best!”

就這樣,Botak組就在太陽公公的見證下成立了(因爲組員中有人自稱Botak所以就把組名稱爲Botak組)。
So the “Botak” group was set up in this morning (there was because the team leader called botak himself, so all of them decided to use “Botak” as the group name).

中午時刻,吃了午餐(水梨)後,我們便開始打包東西。兩位trainer給了我們叫作「Dry Bag」的東西,要我們把必需品放進去。收拾好了後邊將我們自己的行李箱放入倉庫裏面,自己便攜帶自己的「Dry Bag」和PFD上車,準備去營地。
In the afternoon, we started to pack after having the lunch (pear). Trainers gave us a special bag which was called “dry bag”, and we had to put our necessary stuff into our dry bags. We put our own luggage into the storeroom after packing the dry bags. We took the dry bags and PFD, and went to our camp site by van.

▲左邊 Left SideDry Bag;右邊 Right SideSoft Bag

營地是靠近海邊的森林内。我們放下了自己的物品後,K先生便告訴我們這塊小地會被分爲三個部分——帳篷、廚房和廁所。在一知半解的情況下,K先生便教導全部人如何搭帳篷。其實我在大學時有參與過類似的活動,所以知道這種帳篷是如何搭的。由於天氣烏雲密布,所以在營員們搭帳篷的時候,K先生和A先生也幫我們搭好了廚房那裏的帳篷。搭好了帳篷後,A先生便教營員們如何安裝廁所和注重衛生。
The camp site was near to the sea in a forest. We put down our stuffs, and then Mr. K told us that this camp site would be divided into three parts: tent site, kitchen, and toilet. While all of us still blur-ing, Mr. K taught us how to build up the tent. Actually I had joined the similar program during university so I knew how to set up the tent. Because of cloudy weather, Mr. K and Mr. A set up a big tent near to the kitchen when we were setting up the tent. After setting up the tent, Mr. A taught us how to install the toilet and told us the importance of hygiene.

▲學生安裝帳篷 Students were installing Tent

▲A先生解釋如何安裝廁所 Mr. A explained how to install and to use toilet bowl

▲學生們安裝廁所 Students were installing toilet

▲男女個別參觀各自的廁所 Boys and Girls visited their Toilet

▲廚房 Kitchen
帳篷設置完畢後,A先生便教導我們如何劃舟。他首先介紹小舟的各部位,接著就是劃槳的部位,最後才正式教我們如何劃,但劃舟是第二天的活動……練習了後我們便聚集在大帳篷下檢查食材、廚具,然後便準備炊具、熱鍋,開始準備晚餐。在Botak組裏面有烹煮經驗的除了我和陳老師以外,就只有一個營員。在營員忙得手忙腳亂的時候,陳老師只好提點他們,好讓他們能煮出在Pulau Tuba的第一道晚餐。
Mr. A taught us about the kayak after we finished set up the tent. First of all, he introduced the parts of kayak & paddle, lastly he taught us how to do the kayaking but kayaking was the activity of the second day…… In the evening, we gathered under the big tent and checked the food materials, then prepared the dinner. In Botak group, there was only one student knew how to cook (Actually Mdm. Tan knew how to cook too). At this moment, the students were flurry. Mdm. Tan gave some hints so that students could well prepare the first dinner in Tuba Island.


▲正在煮菜的學生以及完成品 Students were cooking and the Final Product

在這之前,K先生將營員們分成三組——LeaderKitchenHygiene組,而各組都有自己的職務。Kitchen組負責早午晚餐的準備,Hygiene負責清洗便當盒和廚具,而Leader則是負責交待全體營員接下來要做的事情。吃完晚餐後,趁Hygiene組在洗碗、Kitchen組在收拾東西時,K先生便召集了Leader組的組員,告訴了他們明天要做的事,和要準備的東西,好讓他們對其它營員交待。
Before cooking, Mr. K divided all the students into three small groups: Leader, Kitchen and Hygiene group, each group had their own duty. Kitchen group needed to prepare the meal for everyone, Hygiene group had to clean up all the food box and equipment, and Leader group need to brief the next plan to us. After having the dinner, Mr. K called up the Leader group members and gave them a briefing about next day plan while Hygiene group was cleaning the stuff and Kitchen group was tidy up the place.

傍晚7時,Leader組組員召集了全部人然後(強制性使用英文)便告訴了所有人第二天的計劃如幾點要起身,幾點集合和吃早餐,以及所有東西要在幾點之前完成;接著Kitchen組宣佈了第二天的早餐是炒米粉。最後就收拾所有的東西,把帆布將所有的器具蓋上後,就是睡覺時間。這是這43夜中最早的睡覺時間(約9點半)……
At 7 pm, Leader group gathered all of us and told us that next day plan (by using English Language) like wake up time, breakfast time and when should finish all the jobs; at the same time, Kitchen group announced that the breakfast tomorrow will be fried mee hoon. Lastly we tidied up all the things and covered them with a tarp. Then it was sleeping time… it was the earliest sleeping time (about 9.30pm) in this 4 days 3 nights camp……

由於地方不大,我睡的帳篷靠近兩個帳篷(一個帳篷睡著兩個學生),因此她們在這一晚的對話我全都聽到了……
As this place was not big, my tent was near to two students’ tents (2 students each tent) so I could hear all of their talk issues at night…… and I did.

第二天(1/9

Second day (1/9)

第二天的主要活動是劃舟。由於劃舟會弄溼自己,所以我幾乎整天都沒有開手機的相機功能,因此關於這一天的照片,是零!
The main activity on second day was kayaking. Kayaking will make me wet so I didn’t switch on my cell phone camera function. It means, there were NO any photos about this day.

由於昨天已經決定了早餐作炒米粉,所以Kitchen組在昨天就將米粉泡在水裏,早上530分起身洗刷後,就可以直接處理米粉了。在準備早餐同時,Kitchen組也準備午餐——白飯配沙丁魚和炒長豆。其他人不是集體上厠所,那就是收拾Dry Bag,因爲我們將會劃舟到下一個營地。
Kitchen group soaked the mee hoon in the water last night so that they could start to cook the mee hoon after they woke up and did the wash & brush. While preparing breakfast, Kitchen group prepared lunch too: the menu was rice with sardine and fried long bean. Other students did their own thing like went to the toilet with a group of people, kept the dry bags because we will go to the next camp site by kayaking later.

▲早上的炒蛋 Morning Scramble Egg

下海之前,我們先做點小運動(和跳舞),接著A先生和K先生便教我們如何使用PFD。「PFD」這個詞在前面有出現過一次,其實是救生衣的意思來的,因爲它的全名是「Personal Floatation Device」。他們先教正確的穿法(因爲之前我們就只是單純套上去穿而已),然後便將我們分爲兩組,各別由A先生和K先生帶下海,嘗試在海中穿PFD浮著的感覺。我們這一行隊伍裏,會游泳的沒有幾個,所以當我們被慢慢帶到深海處時,幾個不會游泳的女生開始亂叫了……我們的Trainer把這個活動稱爲「Water Confident」,我想應該是不要讓我們對水有恐懼,一旦不小心在水上出了什麽意外也可保持冷靜。
Before going to the sea, we did exercises (and had a dance). Then Mr. A and Mr. K taught us how to use PFD. The word “PFD” had been stated in the paragraph before, actually it was life jacket and its full name is “Personal Floatation Device”. They taught us the right way to wear the PFD (before that we just wore it as anyway), then divided us into two group and brought us to the sea and let us floating on the sea. In our group, there were only one or two students knew swimming. When we were brought to the deeper part some girls who didn’t know how to swim started screaming… Our Trainer called this as “water confident”, I thought they wanted us not to scare to the water and we could stay calm down if drop into the sea accidentally…

接著就是開始學如何在小舟覆舟的情況下把小舟翻回來並爬囘上去。這是一個非常困難的練習,所以A先生和K先生是兩個兩個來慢慢進行培訓,好讓我們全體營員都有機會學習這個技術,而那些沒有下水練習的就把他們自己的Dry Bag塞進去Kayak内。結果在練習途中有一對營員翻了三次(雖然不知道原因)……
The next thing we learned was how to capsize the kayak and turned it back then climbed back to the kayak. This training was very hard so Mr. K and Mr. A trained us two-by-two, and made sure that all of us including teacher had learned this skill properly. Other members who were waiting for training tried to put their own dry bag into the kayak. However, there was one pair of kayak group was capsized three times during training…

練習完畢後,A先生也教了我們在水上的一些劃槳信號和哨子信號。A先生是劃舟的專家,所以他在教導我們的時候特別仔細細心。然後,我們就開始下水啦!!!
After training, Mr. A also taught us some signals of kayaking by using paddle or whistle. Mr. A was proficient in kayaking so he was teaching us very detail. Then, we pushed the kayak to the sea and started KAYAKING!!!

我們從中午12時開始劃,一個小時半後邊在一個小碼頭享用午餐(白飯配沙丁魚和炒長豆),吃著午餐的時候另一組人——Excellent Zero從另一變劃來。主辦單位在劃舟這個策劃中我們Botak組與Excellent Zero組交換營地,作爲第二天的活動,所以我們必須在傍晚到來之前劃到對方的營地去。
We started our kayaking at 12.00pm. After one and half hour we had our lunch (rice with sardine and fried long bean) on a small jetty. While we were having our lunch, we saw another group: Excellent Zero group was kayaking from another side to our side. Due to the organizer’s plan, Botak group and Excellent Zero group should exchange the camp side in the second day activity, so we must arrive their camp site before evening.

▲劃舟的各位 Kayaking

劃了一段很長的時間,也在下小雨的情況下劃舟,也有在有人掉下海裏的情況劃舟,終于到達了我們最後第二的目的地——Batu Reban
We took long time on kayaking, it was (small) raining in the half way. Besides, there was a student fall into the sea during kayaking. Finally, we arrived Batu Reban before our last destination!!

Batu Reban

休息了一小段時間在Batu  Reban下的小沙灘上(當然也有人在那裏玩、小便和拍照),我們便繼續劃一小段路,才到達我們接下來的營地。這個時候已經是中午5時了。
We took a rest at the beach at Batu Reban (some students played, pee, and took photos there), then we continued our journey and reached the camp site around 5.00pm.

▲劃舟路綫 Kayak Route

我們將小舟推了上岸,去到了營地放置好了PFD,也分配好了帳篷,大家便開始收拾自己的東西,抹一抹自己的身體,換了衣服後邊在大帳篷下集合收拾大家需要的東西。在大家都有自己的事情做的時候,Mr. A便召集了Leader組告知了他們接下來的行程,同時也定下完成晚餐的時間。
We pushed the kayak to land, walked to the camp site and put on the PFD, allocated the tents, then all of us put our things into tents and cleaned our body, changed clothes, gathered under the big tent and prepared the things we needed (like food). While everyone was busy, Mr. A called up the Leader group and told them the next task. Besides, the Leader group also had to confirm the dinner will end up on time because we had to do the de-briefing at night.


▲第二天的營地 Camp Site2nd Day

以下是我們的晚餐——白飯配廣東炒包菜加上芙蓉蛋,和一碗加了三大包味精的雞肉丸湯。
Photo below was our dinner in that evening: rice with fried cabbage and scramble egg, and chicken ball soup with 3 packs of gourmet powder.

▲晚餐 Dinner

晚上我們收拾了所有東西,和做了de-briefing(和第一天睡前做的事情類似,就是説心裏的感覺什麽的)後,就是休息時間,就這樣今天的活動就到此結束。
We took rest after keeping all the stuffs and did the de-briefing at night (similar to the first day what we had done, it was an activity to speak out our feeling during this program). That’s all the activity records on second day.

第三天(2/9

Third Day (2/9)

早上530分,我們起身、洗刷。我們的早餐是吃營養穀糧,根本不用鋪大帆布于地面上,也不用用火,這樣的話我們離開這個營地之前不用收拾太多東西。帳篷、帆布等所有的東西收拾好了以後,我們等待Van的到來同時就做了點運動和遊戲。大約830分,Van到來,我們拿起各自的PFDDryBag便離開了這個營地。
We woke up and washed at 5.30am. Our breakfast was cereal (with milk) so we didn’t need to put the tarp on the floor and didn’t make fire. This would make us easier to keep all the stuffs before leaving the camp site. When everything was settled, we did some exercises and games while waiting for the vans. The vans arrived at 8.30am. We took our own PFD & own stuffs and left the camp site.

我們回到了一開始集合的地點(我們稱之爲「Base Camp」),那個時候我們四個帶隊老師匯合了,同時也得到了一個驚人的壞消息——由於海浪高達1.5米,所以第三天的海上活動被逼取消。(只有我們四位老師知道,營員們是不知道這個消息的。)
We went back to the jetty (we called it as base camp) and met with Excellent Zero team. At that time we received a bad news: sea activities were forced to be canceled because of the 1.5 meter wave height. (Only four teachers including me knew about it, students still didn’t.)

我們開始收拾自己的行李,然後洗我們的DryBag。然後我們Botak組合Excellent Zero組分組而坐,由自己的Trainer帶領一些小遊戲(七個)。我們進行的遊戲有用腳夾著小球來傳球、五人對五人互換位子、用大帆布撐起不倒的水瓶、學「平結」然後一大組20人在雙手不放開的情況下把一條大長繩綁起平結、「Electric Shock」(我不知如何解釋這個遊戲)、人接人看哪一組可接得最長和最短,然後就是最後由其中一個Trainer陳先生帶領的喊一個提示然後營員們湊足一定的人數成爲一組然後作出指定的動作(這是40人一起玩的遊戲),最後兩大組分爲五個小組談——令自己驚喜的事和……另一個忘了。
We started to keep our own luggage, and washed the empty dry bags. Then all members sat in their own group (Botak group and Excellent Zero group). The trainers led them to play some games. The seven games were: 1) pass a small ball by using both legs; 2) five people changed their position with another five people with some rules; 3) lift up a 1.5 liter bottle (with water inside) by a big tarp and take it to appointed location; 4) learn “reef knot” then tight a reef knot by 20 people without release hands; 5) “electric shock” (I don’t know how to explain this game; 6) connect the longest and shortest line by using their bodies or any wearing (not includes pants or shirts); 7) one of the trainers Mr. Tan gave a hint and all members need to group with enough person & did appointed action (this was a 40 person game). At last all of them was divided into 5 small groups and shared their experiences.



▲我們玩的遊戲 Games

中午12時,是我們的午餐時間。我們的午餐是由主辦單位準備——一盤白飯配雞。
We had our lunch at 12.00pm. Our lunch was prepared by the organizer: it was rice with chicken.

▲午餐 Lunch

過後,我們便被安排坐Van到某間中學去。這間中學後面有一座山,而我們下午的行程,就是爬這座山!我們原本的4天行程是有走森林的,之前因爲鼠尿病事件的關係令主辦單位取消了有關爬山走森林的活動,但在前幾天政府解禁了,但我們的行程卻是沒有這個活動。我相信這個爬山活動是作爲備用計劃吧。
After that we went to a secondary school by vans. There was a small hill behind this school and our activity at noon was HIKING! Actually our original plan was hiking or jungle trekking but the plan canceled because of Leptospirosis. Few days before government lift the ban but our plan was still not  hiking or jungle trekking. I believed that it was the Plan B if we couldn’t go for sea activities.

我們還是分兩組上去這座小山,上了去後就只是看個風景,拍張照就下回來了……我們的Trainer稱那個地方為「Bukit Licin」。
We hiked up the hill in two groups. We enjoyed the beautiful view and took photos, then we went down…… Our trainer called this hill as “Bukit Licin”.

回到了Base Camp,我們便拿起自己的行李去一間小旅館,這是我們第三天過夜的地方,而這個地方有提供沖涼房讓全部人沖涼(前兩天我們都沒有沖涼)。大約430分,到達的學生已經在沙灘上搭好帳篷,接著沖涼的沖涼,準備晚餐的準備晚餐,我則到處閒逛拍照……原本主辦單位沒有準備讓我們作燒烤的材料,當其中一個Trainer問我們老師是否要燒烤時,我們當然說要,所以她就去買燒烤的材料,不過是另外付錢啦……
We back to the base camp and took our own luggage then went to a small chalet. There was our sleeping place on the third day and all of us could take bath at this place (we didn’t take bath for 3 days). At 4.30pm, all people already set up their tent, took bath, and prepared the dinner. For me, I walked around and took photos…… When one of the trainers Ms. N asked us whether we (teachers) need the barbeque or not, all of us said yes. The organizer didn’t prepare the food for barbeque (actually it was not included in dinner), then Ms. N went out to buy the food…… but we need to pay for it……

晚上我們做最後一次的de-briefingK先生和A先生的帶領下學生們說(吹)出了各種各樣的話……
At night, Mr. K and Mr. A led the last de-briefing of Botak group.

第四天(3/9

Fourth Day (3/9)

早上吃了早餐Roti Canai後,我們看天氣——天色陰暗、烏雲密布還有下一點點小雨;但卻得到了一個消息——海面上風平浪靜,我們可以參與海上活動,但只能一個——Giant Swing。全部人員收拾了帳篷後,便浩浩蕩蕩地去到了小碼頭,搭上小遊艇,往帆船——Puteri Mahsuri去!
After eating roti canai as breakfast, the weather was not good…… but we received a good news: there was good weather at sea so we could run only one sea activity: Giant Swing. All members went to the small jetty after they kept the tents. Then, we went to a big sail ship named Puteri Mahsuri by small boots.

上船了後,我們Botak組被安排在船頭由A先生和K先生教導如何穿上安全衣,以免在玩Giant Swing的時候出現意外。接著很快地一個個營員便爬上去跳Giant Swing了。由於時間很趕的關係,不管是我們Botak組還是另一邊的Excellent Zero組也是進行得相當快。雖然這麽說但這個活動還是從早上9時(開始講解穿安全衣)至1140分(最後一位老師,陳老師跳Giant Swing)。
Botak group was brought to the bow of the ship after all students were on the ship. Mr. A and Mr. K taught us how to wear the safety device/equipment to avoid any accident during the activity (Giant Swing). They climbed up and played the Giant Swing one by one. This activity was carried on quickly (either Botak group or Excellent Zero group) because pressed for time. This activity was from 9.00am (starting explain about the safety equipment) until 11.40am (last person, Mdm. Tan played Giant Swing).

接著我們被召集到船尾,開始這個活動的最後環節——派參與證書!打開證書一看,日期全都寫錯,就連有些人包括我的名字都寫錯了……結果就把證書退回去叫他們重新弄過。
Lastly we were called to the stern of the ship and started the last activity: Giving Participation Certificate! We opened up the envelope and found that the date was wrong! And some of us including me found typing error of the name! Finally we returned it back and asked them to redo again.

這個活動正式結束,我們從Puteri Mahsuri乘搭小艇直接回到Langkawi島,沒有再回到Pulau Tuba了。放了PFD和拿囘學生們自己的手機錢包後,我們便去吃午餐順便買一些紀念品。中午2時,我們到達機場,等待回去的班機。
Finally this program finished, we backed to Langkawi Island from Puteri Mahsuri ship by taking small boots and didn’t go back to the Pulau Tuba. After returning the PFD and got back students’ own wallets & cell phones, we went for lunch and bought some souvenir. At 2.00pm we arrived the airport and waited for the plane.

We reached LCCT KL/KLIA2 at 6.00 pm. After giving the last advice to all students, all of us dismissed and went home.
