Alumni 1 - My experience

On 1st May, we (me & hubby) start our journey to OBS lumut right after Friday prayer. Since I'm from Ipoh , the journey took us about 1hr 30mins. My hearts pounding all the know lah...first time ma... but after went through the flyers of " Road to 55" stated "There are no strangers, only friends that we haven't met" I felt relief....
On top of that, I also worried about my 3 children left at home with their granny. Hope they can manage everything back home....

I reached OBS around 4pm at OBS entrance...

We parked our car by the hall and walk to the registration. There where I met "Geng of 13" and also the instructors..Karl, MJ.
After short briefing, we all take a short rest at the dorm.

I felt a bit restless at the dorm and I decided to take a walk around OBS with my hubby. We stop by at the boat house and take some pics there...
Finally, most of us were there to take pics at small talks...Except Uncle Syed & Uncle Ramli...heard the went for teh tarik at nearby stall...(tak aci...)

The BBQ dinner went very well...and my stomach is overloaded...huh.
Back to the dorm but can't sleep well with full stomach. So I take a walk again to the boathouse with hubby, sembang-sembang with the night shift guard. Finally back to dorm and have a good sleep.
Suddenly, around 2am, heavy rain woke me up + somebody's car alarm car triggered...haiyo...very annoying... I think more than 5 times the alarm triggered...heheheh
Sorry Guys ! Its my car...

The next day....
2nd May 2009 - around 7am. Everybody at the boat house. No PT due to raining...
We make preparation for the Whaler journey. Find ourselves Life jackets that fits.
MJ do a shot briefing on whaler equipments, teach us about knots...(b4 this I only knew "Ikat mati " & Ikat tali kasut) huhuhu
We also move the whaler from the boat house to the sea via slipway using chain block,trolley & ropes. What a team...

Wah..Uncle Ramli looks cool with the lifejacket.
