I guess the posts below have very well summed up how BRATs Penang 2010 was like for us.
We all had our moments of ecstasy, frustration, star-struck period and blues.
I have to admit that I was very relieved when BRATs ended but somehow it left me wanting more. I’m sure many of you agree with me as well.
To be honest, BRATs in Penang wasn’t the greatest 4 day camp if you’re gonna put it up against scout camps in a jungle beside a river. Even the food from the hotel wasn’t exactly top notch and definitely lacked the whole Penang flavor. Work was tedious and exhausting (I ended up going to bed every night just wishing everyone goodnight and not bonding more with the others). We didn’t get a free-and-easy time to really check out Penang and shop for local food (except that small 2 hours lunch at the char kuey teow + cendol stall).
But for some reason, it felt like a good and complete programme!
- We learnt a lot, that’s for sure.
As Himmat said, “There’s more to journalism than just writing articles, there are videos and photography involved!”
Some found their new passion and probably new talent in those field while some found it in others; like how John found the weaver in him.
Doing a simple “Sean Sing, The Star, Malaysia” in front of the camera isn’t easy after-all.
There are rules and lines to follow in photography?
- We now know how big a role social media plays.
Twitter helped save a fire according to Niki.
Jessica and Niki earn money through her blog. (I know many went and ask Jess how she does it coz i did too)
- We learnt new games and had fun.
Algorithm no machi! Jibunde no machi!
Aiyo-Ping-Pong-Piang-8 (seniors group)!
- We made new celebrity friends.
James the Awesome, K-Kellies Kelvinder and Keeshanan with their debut single “i believe i can eat”, aza iza the head of her cheerleading squad, carlson the sepet and tasha the…erm nvm.. along with many others. ( you know who you are! =D )
and last but not least,
- We found out our true inner-selves, with help from Ivy.
No, its not the Glee in us,
its the “Lembap mampus” in us.
Wait wait, is that sharm in the front..?
nah, must be my eyes. haha
ANYWAYS, now that BRATs is over, bring on them Facebook tags and reunions! =D
Keep in touch ya’ll.
Until next time,
