Geography reflection

3 learning points:
1) Not all innovations are successful
2) Innovations can take place anywhere, anytime
3) One conversation at a time, focus on a topic

2 things to improve on:
1) The trainer(s) could try to speak louder or use mikes to project his(their) voice
2) There could be more trainers to help with the workshop

1 important key takeaway:
1) It is important to innovate and be creative so that there will always be new exciting and interesting things

Finally Blogging after 2 or 3 weeks. Well here goes.

This Saturday I woke up at 8 and did my homework and play Minions on Ice. It was fun. Then at 11 I had some religious class that ended at 2.15 pm. I watched 30 Rock with parents(my father downloaded it) and I went to tuition at 3.45 pm. The teacher was some guy that thought us algebra. The class was kinda boring. Then when I came back at 6.30 pm. I bathed I did my Malay Compo which was 6 pages long and 1059 words(avg. 180 words per page). The minimum was only 180 words. I slept around 12.30am doing the compo.

On Sunday I woke up at 7.30 when my Father was going to cycle. After he left, I started playing DIRT 2 on his PC until around 8.30 since I was going swimming and my cousin's mother was fetching Mother and I. I had my breakfast and she arrived around 9 plus and my Father arrived at 8.15. we arrived at Awi's house around 9.45. Swimming was at 11 and we all left at 10. Mother and her sister were not inside the swimming complex. While waiting for the trainer, my cousin, his sister(Namirah) and I played catching. Then when Uncle Tyson(the trainer arrived, he asked us to do 300 sit ups but I only did around 250 when he asked me to squat and stand 300 times. Around this time 3 other people came. They had to do sit ups and squatting as well. Then all of us rested for 15 minutes. We swam at 12.30 and class ended at 1.30 so we swam for about an hour. I was told to practice breaststroke only while the rest did either breaststroke or freestyle. After swimming Awi and I played with a submarine, tupperware and a ball he brought. We stopped playing at 2.30. Mother was already waiting outside with Awi's mother and Namirah. Mother tried calling me several times but my phone was inside a locker. We finished bathing around 2.45. We got our stuff in the locker. Awi's mother brought us to Northpoint to have something to eat. I had Chicken Cutlet. Then after eating, mother and i took a bus back while they drove back home. I slept on the way home. We transfered onto another bus at Pasir Ris that would take us back home. At home I related the eating part to him and I continued playing Dirt 2 and I leveled up to level 28 from 23. I also got some new items. Sadly, Icould only play untill 7.30 after which I needed to pack my back. I slept at 9.30 pm. THE END.

Reflections on the Adventure Camp

During the 2D 1N adventure camp on the 4th and 5th day of the orientation camp, I learned and felt that we have to respect, be responsible, communicate well, be punctual, be engaged in the activities and have teamwork. I feel so because we have to respect others to be respected, communicate well for the team to work effectively and be responsible by being punctual for the activities so others will not have to wait for you.

After going through all the activities, I would want to take another bath in the Milo Pond only because I got dirty by the mud near the pond and in the Challenge Valley. I enjoyed taking a dip in the Milo Pond because it was cooling and I got to clean myself (sort of).

I think I would want to improve my sense of timing because the trainer didn't tell us the time only what time we should report at so I do not know how long I have taken or how much time I have left since the trainer forced us to remove our watches.

Personal Reflection on The Amazing Race

I understand that the value 'Expanding Our Learning Network' means that we learn beyond the limits of the classroom. This value is important since there is still a lot more to be learned outside classes and it will help in my learning at SST we use applied learning learning at SST.

Personal Reflection on Bride Building Activity

I personally can't remember what I felt. I think the way we communicated was slightly above average in the sense that we were used to the way we interacted with each other. I'm not sure if I have learned anything about myself but I have understood my members better so I know how to do in future activities. I'm unsure why, but I did not feel discomfort, fear or apprehension.
