Bunnies : good to eat...

Ooo,remember i promised a survival camp post?haha here it is!

well all we did when we got there was test the durability and the waterproofity? of our survival kits. then we just headed out in our patrols to make our shelter. my patrol was me and tjin oni.haha... so we ran around sapu-ing everything first before the girls could get any load of 'em.and yes we tore down the whole forest.haha

One of the many stupid bamboo branches we worked on for an hour?

Our shelter building was uber relaxed. we had all the time in the world to have 10 minute breaks, have fun playing and drinkin or pee-ing in the river. oh and we were given some tasks too like make a spear, collect 5 different kinds of food and errr... make a fire to last the whole night?but we still had all the time in the world.


Testing the comforts of our overnight 6 star hotel.

Fixing the roof

and waterproof-ing it

So by 2pm in the afternoon we finished building our awesome 6 star hotel. and proud of it we were. the rest of the day we spent tring to find our five diff kinds of food. so far we had two, an unriped banana, a mangosteen-like fruit and later on we found some kind of limau? haha. started trying our spear,didn't work the way we wanted it too. at the end of the camp, we made three diff spears. haha... the girls got harder tasks though.. make a snare?a working knife? but they did a pretty good job at it. unlike their shelter. it was quite sad.

At least they were proud of it.

Check it out weih!

We're sitting on a table lashed by some rempits before this.

Then evening came,and so did darren and manesh. manesh joined our patrol cuz yeah, we were the only three guys out of nine people there? so he added his own modifications and extended the shelter so it could fit him too (manesh is loooooooooooooooooong). and the best part came,killing the rabbit tjin named Naeden reuel bunny ( cuz the rabbit was quite dumb). tjin had alot of fun with it. haha.. but it was quite sad lah... cuz it ain't a chicken,its a pet. the girls already had gotten pretty much attached to it so they couldn't bear to look.

Bruang is here!

Like a magic trick. the paws are so cute.haha

Bye wabbit!

So manesh had the very unsympathetic honour of piercing and slitting the neck while me and tjin held the fight-to-the-very-last-end creature. it kept making wailing noises that echoed the whole campsite. manesh kept hessitating the kill.haha... but he did in the end.. blood had been spilled that night. not only by the rabbit which is actually for cmdrs to eat but by fish too. they gave us live catfish and tillapia to kill. we were running out of time cuz it was turning really dark, and the girls were to lazy to catch the fish so they poured the whole bucket of fish out. haha. it was so dark d that me and manesh were cleaning the fish in close to pitch black (no torches remember) darkness. but we pulled it off together with guts and hearts and livers and intestines. tjin was bz preparing the fire. we salted the fish and baked it. unfortunately at 935pm, the two catfish dissapeared ( it burned right through) so we only had the tillapia left to share amongst three of us... Boy,we were hungry ( din have lunch too remember).

Blood had been spilled that night.

Darren and the cmdrs barbecued naeden reuel bunny on a stick over a fire some 50 metres away. finally after 2 long hours at 1030pm, dinner was ready! half of it was cooked but i went and ate everything. the other two mates were apalled at my savagery? half contented, the cmdrs finally shared rabbit with us. Man, it was soooo good. they made stew with it also. the dumbest thing is that the girls decided to become hypocrites... they couldn't resist the temptation! so they ask for some rabbit too... ahahahaha.teruknya. ahh! so then i went once or twice to help the girls with their "fire".they really dunno how to jaga it.

Their faces say it all. haha but look at shawna (if u can find her... akakakakak)

Each of us took turns jaga-ing the fire. most of the time,we weren't in our shelter cuz it was so cold,the fire brings warmth don't it?haha. but we kept a good fire the whole night. and when morning came, all three of us took a snooze.that was a about 6am?daylight is so reassuring.

Cmdrs took the shot quietly. the silver stuff is an emergency blanket.

Shawna likes dressing for training all the time.

So when we got up, it was time to make sure all our tasks have been completed though we were dead tired. we made our third spear,boiled water using tjins tin survival kit and manesh said the shoot of the banana tree can be eaten and so can the flower.meaning,we got 5 edible foods!we thought la. untill testing time came.

A huff and a puff and he stepped our house down!

the part manesh built, pretty much was destryoed from it. then darren took the waterbottle and poured it on our shelter. manesh was bz putting back the leaves that fell off... hahaha.

See the hand holding the leaf?

But our shelter pretty much tahan-ed everything. darren approved 3 out of 5 of our edible foods. the Mangosteen-like fruit and the limau?non edible. he approved our boiled water and he said our third spear was ok.though its not good enough to really kill anything. but i could tell that he thought we did a good job even though he was shouting and yelling at us. haha. then it was the girls turn.

i find this shot so funny. they're all huddling inside and darren is taking his time.

Look at diane's petrified face.ahahaha.

then we(the guys) went fishing. din catch anything though. an hour later,we packed up and left.... dang,can't jump off the waterfall. Then we had a good lunch and headed back to church. all was good untill i found out my mom and my sis got robbed the night before. and the funny thing is, they got robbed the same time we had the best part of our night, RABBIT. so yeah, that sucks.
