PKA 17 & Survival 4 @ Kem Pangkor Rimba

Our next PKA and Survival programmes continued (click here for previous PKA). This time we held at pangkor rimba kem, pulau pangkor. Previously, we used to separate the 2 programmes, PKA stood on its own, same goes to Survival . In line with the effort to save cost, we combined them together, chaired by one person, Puan Nik, held at the same place, same date but still maintain their respective objectives. PKA to motivate the ‘special’ diploma students and Survival to change mind of new degree students from ‘spoon-feed’ practices to ‘stand-on-their-own-feets’ practices.

We went there by 3 busses and 1 van to fit 100++ persons. I left behind my husband and my heroes (sedih dan kesian) for 3 days and 2 nights. Do you believe that this was the first time i was in ferry?what a shame.hehe.and you imagine, how to handle 100++ people, with a lot of things to bring with. Alhamdulillah, all went good.

I used to be PKA’s committes for the last 2 semester. This semester, i was put under Survival’s committe as AJK Makanan (the most important portfolio.hehe). As refers to the term ‘survival’, they must prepare the foods themselves. And yes, they did. We alltogether prepared dinner for 2 days. In terms of outdoor activities and facilities, no different between PKA and Survival except for LDK times. They have different session of LDK. they all stayed in tents (AJKs stayed in chalets.hehe).

Place?the natural scenery is very very nice, beautiful, calm, broad, clean. Yet, we were very dissappointed with the kem’s management. My chalet was so hot (aircond tk sejuk), the hall as well. Other chalets were no problem. Tempat makan?toilet?oowh..very2 bad. I bet, if it’s not because of the natural beauty, the kem will not survive. This pangkor rimba kem is about 15 – 30 minutes from pangkor jetty by taxi (pink van). And about 15 minutes to tmpt tumpuan yg ada kedai byk2. If you want to feel the beautiful scene, no transport, have your own foods, i suggest u to come here. you can either rent the tents for RM10 per person or get RM150 chalets, (the cost will be different seasonally). You can call taxi to bring u to the makan2 places and be ready to pay them up to RM 12 per one way. Or maybe you can rent a car (lupa plak berapa sewanya).

subhanAllah..what a great view

If i’ll be here for the next holiday, i’ve planned to get the place near the makan2 places. Easy to buy something. No need to get taxi except for pergi dan balik.

you know what, i almost lost my watch. at that time, i was 'busy' to feel the beauty of nature. sedar tak sedar, i left the watch somewhere on the sand. when i realized it, i went back to the seaside and meraba2 atas pasir (almaklumlah, masa tu dh gelap) and..alhamdulillah, i found my lovely watch. it was a gift from my abe for my first birthday after our marriage. cant imagine if i lost it.

p/s: thanks to all AJKs, students, and all who have involved in this programme. Kak fizah, nice to work together. My abe, you are a good partner of life.
