This write up starts from out opinion of the top rated to the least rated... Enjoy! ( And we skipped out the workshop and indian cultural activity) Top rated : Science Centre (4 ½ stars) Why is this the BEST activity? In Olivia’s view : Actually, It wasn’t that bad, cos I love insects and amphibians! Some ppl are just so... You get what I mean. Just that we did not get enough time to dig more stuff, and all the fishes and dragonflies were already caught by all the students from the previous batch... And, many people were screaming when the insects fell out of the containers, and that was really annoying... And we didn’t get a break to eat our snacks! Argh... But anyway it was good as I got to play my iPad in the bus as it was a rather long journey and it kept me occupied... In Josephine’s view : We got to see frogs and pond skaters and dragonflies and damselflies and stuff. And we got to see all the creepy crawlies scuttling all about and it was so cool. But that woman was like so what one. She was like get in your groups! And we were already in our groups and she just confused us more. And why does Olivia get to bring her iPad? That’s not fair. :( Next up : Multi Level Captains Ball ( 4 stars) Why 4 stars in our opinion? In Olivia’s view : I loved this game! I wish it is in the Olympics as a sport... P.S. I got drenched by the water many times! And, this game is a big change from the different captains ball we play in school.. “Condolences” for Josephine who didn’t play because she had a broken arm... The 6I instructor came to help our class as we were scoring too fast... In the end, we had 4000+ points! The winner! Too bad there wasn’t a prize... Awww...The other classes were cheating so... Actually like every class! I’ll confess, that our class sort of cheated as well.. So did all the classes... We actually got 7 ppl in our team... Instead of 5... But we didn’t cheat in other ways >< In Josephine’s view : Well I didn’t get to play (so did most people), but then again I have a broken arm so yeah. It was fun because everyone was rooting for their class, and it felt good when our classmates scored. And the water bombs, that was a nice touch. HOWEVER SOME PEOPLE CHEATED SO X-(. Not naming anyone. THE KRAPPY MALAY CULTURAL THINGY... WELL... WE ARE SPEECHLESS... COS THEY TREAT US LIKE WE REALLY REALLY WANT TO DO SILAT UNDER THE SUN!!! WHAT’S NEW IN THE OILY TIMES... The Oily Times has got many new things in store for you this year!
Firstly, we have an all new “VOICE OUT!” Section, which will appear in the next issue, where you can actually voice out your thoughts. Next, we will be creating a “ Colour Crew”, where you all have to join a crew of your favourite colour, and of the members, appoint a leader, and the leader can create documents to get the members going. Leaders will be rewarded with sweets and chocolates too >.< And the crew that is the most active at the end of each term ( Your leader must send in a short report of what you did) will get a special prize, a grabbag, consisting of sweets, and some nice stuff from Takashimaya... And next, we will have a poll station, where you can vote for your favourite items >< Thats about all >< Please feel free to give us suggestions @ firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
