KK Trip – Wednesday 25th June 2008 – Day 3

June 26, 2008

All the same as the past 2 days. Except the F3s attendance was superb. Altogether we had 12 people. Although the F4s had potential and the physical built but they had too many issues. Motivational and other commitments to name a few. The F3s on the other hand are showing promising report. 2 days of training did not put their hopes down but on the other hand they were improving after each day of training. Go underdogs!

Training consists of :

Jeda – 20 laps. This time we timed them. At the moment we can be sure that 4 F4s are capable of completing 20 laps within 20 minutes.

Sprinting – 6 laps – pool width

Shooting – shoot all you want. Without noticing, their shooting skills have improved a lot after 2 days of continuous training plus last week’s training when Pian was there as well.

Game

We divided them into 2 groups. Judin and me on different teams. While Judin was concentrating more on their game spirit,formation and having fun, I was concentrating more on strategy and their game play. At first I was the one giving them instructions on the game strategy, but later on we left them to decide as they were enjoying the game very much and they can analyze on their own. So hopefully they would combine what the both of us taught them for the past 3 days. At some point we need them to realize that waterpolo would be much more fun if they had more stamina, skill, speed and experience. So this was a very effective way to develop them instead of concentrating on the laps, sprinting, passing, etc…for now.

As I mentioned earlier, the F3s are showing tremendous progress. With more and more people showing up I could see that they are very serious plus they are also showing results every day. I would say that the F3s are slowly developing into a more balanced team as they are getting more and more used to being in the pool. The F4s were not bad actually, only for those who had other sports to commit to, which slowed down their progress. Those who had rugger managed to come for training only for a short while, but did not manage to stay throughout the whole training period. Others who had hockey like Acad’s brother aka Nene also managed to come for training despite having 3 matches earlier that morning. Other than that, the rest of the F4s were also improving very much due to the extensive training we have given them.

With both batches showing results and a promising future, we (judin n me) have managed to nominate a few guys for the bronze medallion training. The F4s would be Haziq, Sheikh, Hakim aka Telor and Nene to name a few. The F3s like Bond,Saif and Pojie are on the list as well. Bear in mind that we need to have a minimum of 10 people for the bronze medallion. So hopefully we can develop all the 10 nominees when the time comes.

My view on the trip – the 3rd day was the best day. We managed to have 2 teams (including us the OBs). Previously we were short of manpower. Hopefully they would keep it up until the next OB would come.

Also, as for us OBs, I may not be able to go to KK as often as I can in the future. Not going to explain my reason here but hopefully Judin and Pian can organize the trips to KK as much as possible before the fasting month. I will concentrate more on the paperwork and updating this blog. As for the other OBs especially those in my batch – I have run out of ideas as to how to motivate you guys. If you wanna talk about financial and commitment you can ask Judin how much we have sacrificed. So please spare me your justification.

A big thanx this time to Azrul 8791 who have been our official sponsor this time around. Again, thanx Azrul. If you are reading this you have no idea how much you have helped us in this trip. I don’t expect other OBs to understand this, but with the fuel price hike going on we were able to drive to KK and revive the waterpolo team. Cikgu Roslan (PKHEM) and Cikgu Zamri (Sprots Secretary) were amazed by our effort. Even the HM knows about what is going on and supports us 100% – only we haven’t met him in person. Even the guard didnt even ask us to report (write in the visitor log book) to the guard house. They just gave us the keys to the pool with no questions asked. I guess OBs make the best impact. So again, thanx to those who have contributed and supported our nobel effort. Allow me to mention their names…

1. Faiz 8791

2. Azrul 8791

3. Topeq 9701

4. Daniel 9701

5. Isman 9498

6. Judin 9498

7. Pian 9600

I hope to increase the members to our group by contacting more and more OBs. Some like Nizar 9599, Cikun 9600, Reza 9600, Kamil 9296,  have yet to be contacted. We have yet to contact the junior OBs and the senior OBs. For the juniors we need help from the present boys. As for the seniors Kamil 9296 would be a good start. Remember, I am not being the materialistic one here but as we all know and realize, someone needs to be there and coach them. Its impossible for them to open the pool with no lifeguard. So, to contribute you can choose to cash in or go to KK. For some like Judin and Pian have done both. The rest, take your pick. Remember that the pool will be closed down by the ministry if we do not act immediately. I think I have posted it several times. Again, I have no idea on how to convince you guys. Some don;t even bother reading this blog eventhough I have sms-blasted informing updates to this blog.

If you are reading this, I am sorry if it may seem emotional but after looking at the faces of the present boys really fires my spirit. The look that money can’t buy. Who else can the present boys depend on?Do you actually think the teachers or PIBG are interested? All they can do is meeting meeting meeting (endless) but in the end no action. So we need to turn the tables if we want things to change. If you have read Judin’s comment in the previous posts you will probably understand what I am talking about.

Trip Cost

Before I elaborate on this issue, please note that this is the first time we actually stayed overnight in KK. We do know the toll price (refer to previous posts) and average petrol consumption. Accommodation wise I may need feedback since staying in KK might bore us to death. Staying in Pavilion might damage our hearing as the F3s are really noisy and I can’t be the one shouting about to silence them. So Judin suggested that we take Double Lion as our standard rate for accommodation. Anything extra should come out from our own pockets which I have yet to decide. Will highlight this issue during our next WPOB meeting.

FYI, Double Lion’s rate is RM50 per night. So that would be RM50 x 2 : RM100.

This is the cheapest rate in KK. I’m not sure if we’re going to make this the standard / ceiling rate for accommodation for our project. If I was travelling on my own expenses I wouldn’t stay in KK, but since the budget is coming from Azrul we did feel that this should be the minimum cost for accommodation.

Petrol : RM 100 (KL to KK) – inclusive of travelling around in KK is RM150 RM200. Depending on where you stay, eat and do other stuff to fill your time.

Of course we didn’t stay in KK. We stayed in Ipoh since we planned to meet Mr Azmi – FnRD to discuss further about the bronze medallion but unfortunately he will only be back in Ipoh after the 25th of June due to LIMA held in Langkawi. Even his subordinates were there as well, which means we might need to come again another time to meet him. Anyway, our decision to stay in Ipoh is also due to the fact that Ipoh has more accommodation alternatives while KK has only 4. We called all 4 places in KK, and so far the best rate is I would say RM80 per night. Condition – not very comfortable, but just OK. But for RM80 per night Judin suggested that we stay in Ipoh since the price is the same and the room is much more comfortable with TV (astro available) and air-conditioning etc. Plus you can do a lot more things in Ipoh compared to staying in KK. Again, will highlight this issue for confirmation from WPOBs. My say is since we are all adults and some of us have families I would only say its fair that we choose a better place to stay which is not too expensive but still affordable.

In the next meeting, I’d suggest the ceiling rate for accommodation to be RM80 per night. Don’t know how many of you would agree but as an OB I think its just nice.

my 2 cents.

KK Trip – Tuesday 24th June 2008 – Day 2

June 25, 2008

OB – same as yesterday

objective – to create Perak Champs or Perak Chums

report

Arrived Koleq pool by 4pm as agreed yesterday. What we did….

Jeda – 10 laps (including myself….and now i remember how much stamina we used to have those days)

Shooting – formed a semi circle in front of the goal and shoot all you want.

Game – split them into 2 teams with Judin and me included.

Note : Having the game was Judin’s idea. We were very concerned that our training might have been to strenuous for the guys yesterday that made Halim decided to quit. Plus 2 other guys who didnt show up yesterday and today due to last week’s training. Although Haziq and Sheikh are in the process of persuading them to reconsider their decision but what Halim did yesterday had an impact on us both. So we decided to make it fun this time. I guess my concern for these guys were too much that I forgot they never had any real training before except for the F4s who were mostly fit and had some experience from MSSPK last year and years before. As for the F3s they were still new so some may still want to stay in the team and improve themselves, while others might be in a dilemma – to stay on the team or not. Either way at this point their motivation might be at an alarming state so we need to devise a way to pacify those negative thoughts.

So we did what Judin suggested. Being more concerned on sustaining them rather than training them, organizing the game was a good idea to show them how much fun it is to be in a waterpolo team. Also it could make them realize if they had plenty of stamina they would have much more fun instead of catching a breather every 10 minutes. As for us the OBs, the fun part was definitely there only our stamina level was a bit off. A bit. hehe….

My team had the most score,but mostly due to counter-attack strategy, and not so much on formation as we only had 4 on each team. No point having a formation if you ask me. Penat jgn cakap lah.4 people to cover the whole pool.Its like having a futsal team on a football field.

At the end of the training, we coached them on importance of passing accuracy, strategy and quick decision making. Also to shout for the ball and effective opponent marking. I didn’t concentrate much on Judin’s team scoring but more to us having the opportunity to score. Which was why you’d be surprised that our top scorer wasn’t even the top player but just a F3 whose name was Zaif. No offense but from his face I could tell that he has renewed his spirit and had more confidence in himself than before. The F4s were very cooperative when it came to teamwork only Judin’s team members were playing in a library. I guess they were trying to be Dr Xavier – using telepathy to communicate to team members only they were on the wrong frequency altogether.

In a nutshell, they had fun. By concentrating on the game you wouldn’t be thinking much on your body being tired and so forth.Only it was a shame that some had rugby training and Haziq suffered from an ankle injury after their rugger match yesterday. At first we thought he wouldn’t come to the pool but later he did show up to give support. Even with a twisted ankle he still joined us only he came much later, at about 5pm. He went to the extent of using one leg to float. I hope he didn’t injure himself further afterwards….his ankle was quite bad fyi.

While playing Cikgu Roslan came by, of course he was there only a short while as he had to prepare for Koleq’s trip to Vaji. I told him that the balls that Koleq kept in the store were all in bad shape so Koleq might need to purchase new balls, which he agreed to propose to HM. Will ask the boys to follow up on that matter. Also asked Cikgu Roslan to get another teacher to be in charge of the team to get things done smoother for the near future.

Tomorrow will be our last day. Not sure what we’ll be training on for tomorrow but hopefully their attendance would improve tremendously, and their punctuality as well.

Will be collecting cash for tomorrow, plus their IC numbers for the proposal that I’m going to send to Faiz. We hope to get their bronze medallion training and evaluation test before fasting month.

Anything else. Just check it here eh.

KK Trip – Monday 23rd June 2008 – Day 1

June 24, 2008

OB – Judin 9498 and Huddin 9498

Objective – The real deal. To teach the guys what it takes to be a Perak Champ, or a Perak Chap.

Report

Drove Judin’s Myvi this time around. Left from Bangsar at 12 noon. Stopped at Tapah RnR for lunch, reached KK at 3pm. Yes Judin was quite friendly with the throttle. We were speeding all the way. Lucky not as wreckless as Pian though. Upon reaching KK we drove around to look for accommodation for the night

Today’s training went as planned. We opened the gate at 5pm. Waited for the others to arrive. By 5.15 3 guys representing the F4s showed up. Those include Sheikh, Hakim and Halim. F3s were Bond, Fauzi, Hiddir, Zaif and Haziq. Total were 8.

Training contents are as follows:

Jeda – 10 laps – no time limit

Sprinting – 5 laps of pool width

Floating – float from the side to the center of the pool with hands above the water. Hold the center and sprint to the side. Repeated the floating but this time did the star jump and sprint to the side.

Dribbling – split them into 2 groups. Dribble to the other side of the pool width and then pass the ball to the next person. Repeated for 2 rounds and then pause for breather.

Shooting – formed a semi circle along the penalty line and take turns to shoot. 5 tries each.

Skirmish – Split into 2 teams and only used half pool with 1 keeper.

Halim (burung) decided that waterpolo was too tiring for him, so he decided to quit after doing the sprints. When I said quit I meant he really quit waterpolo.

“Sorry bang, saya rasa waterpolo ni saya tak boleh main”

What can I say? We’re not in the business of forcing people doing things they don’t like, and he did mention from the beginning that he wanted to try it out. One heck of a try. One non-intensive-day-training and he decided to quit. I bet if it was basketball or rugby he wouldn’t have reacted the same way. Whatever.

From our observation the training wasn’t that intensive as people like Sheikh and Hakim (both F4) weren’t even exhausted at all. The F3s were quite honest with their facial expression. All were experiencing physical fatigueness. My guess they weren’t as fit as the F4s, but at least they didn’t want to quit like Halim so I guess they were quite positive about today’s training. Tomorrow’s training will commence earlier, as early as 4pm. Haziq 0509 couldn’t make it today since he had rugger friendly match with STAR. Hockey players had training so they couldn’t make it as well.

Personally, I’m looking forward for tomorrow’s training. All the F4s should be able to show as they are running out of excuses. Just hope the F3s don’t give up as easily. Briefing session they were very quite. Not sure whether they were silent due to physical tiredness or their minds filled with doubt – whether to continue with water polo or play some other non-tiring sport like congkak or gasing.

Other updates will be posted here tomorrow. Need to get a good rest for tomorrow.

KK trip – Friday 20th June 2008

June 22, 2008

OB –  Judin 9498, Pian 9600, and me.

Objective – Give the present boys a sneak peak of what our training used to be like during those days when we had six packs and unlimited stamina. Not that we don’t have them, just that we prefer to reserve our true potential as we are the rare species….hahahah…

Report

Pian drove his car this time. Fetched me from Bangsar, later fetched Judin from Shah Alam. Had lunch and left to KK about 1pm. Reached KK around 4pm. Pian had some carpet emergency he couldn’t escape, so had to stop at a carpet shop next to Maybank KK. Had some munchies at Kow Kee since Yut Loy was closed. Opened the pool gate at 5pm.

Attendance were 6 F4s since others had Rugby, pacak tiang, and Sports Day the following day. Their lovely captain had Orchestra finals in KL. With Judin and Pian around we had better ideas for training and development. This time we did some evaluation of everyone’s current physical fitness and skills. Started with Jeda – told them to swim as many laps as they can without having a breather. Some only survived 3 laps. The most was 16 laps. But later we stopped that guy since he was Terengganu swimmer and quickly concluded that this guy could be the one whose going to set new records in next year’s MSSPK. Nvm that, later we did some sprinting. Including Pian and me. Seemed that they have the speed only the techniques were a little off. Stroke, breathing and etc. Had a few breathers, later we did some passing and shooting. Too bad that they were punctured (pancit) most of the time so we gave them a lot of rest in order for them to do the training properly. I know this seemed like pampering them but not to worry. Tomorrow Judin and me are going again to train them and this time no more Mr Nice Guy.

Later we thought them some fun activities in the pool that can help improve their breathing and stamina. For one we did some diving from one end of the pool to another. Later we did some jumping and floating. We ended the session at 615pm. Judin sponsored some drinks, which they were in desperation of. Had a feedback session on that day’s training. Judin and Pian gave their comments of wisdom. Present boys left the pool around 7pm. We left the pool by 8pm.

Had dinner at the train station. Seemed that I did forget all the crazy training we used to do those days. It made me even wonder how we had time to do so many things during games hour which was from 5pm to 630pm. Most of the time we finished at 7pm but by that time the wardens were already standing at the pool gate and staring at us furiously. I even remember those days Ustaz Ishak even punched us in the abs as a token of gratitude for following the games hour time limit.

Later that night had a short meeting at their classroom. Got some of their IC no’s while eating sponsored KFC by Judin, which was the last high calory meal for them. We finished at 1030pm. Told them to prepare for next Monday since we’ll be coming again for training. One guy didn’t show up since he was too tired. Sorry, we were just too excited about all this. We’ll make the training harder next time. Ha ha ha ha….

So much for KK updates. Other updates include as follows.

1. If we have time on Monday (23rd June) Judin and me are going to Ipoh FnRD to meet Mr Azmi personally. Since we’ll be there for 3 days we can have time to train them better plus they don’t have any big days ahead.

2. Will be getting their details for Faiz to fwd to MCOBA. This is to get their funds for the Bronze medallion. Judin suggested that they get their bronze medallion before fasting month since we know that they can’t train during fasting month and school will only start after Hari Raya. That means 2 months of no training plus all the rendang and ketupat will put their stamina way back.

3. Present boys managed to collect RM10 from each member. Will be using that to get more waterpolo balls. Will have the cash on Monday.

4. Pian to get in touch with his batch members to collect funds. As petrol increase this time really hurt our pockets so we might need as much help as we can get. Not to worry, we are doing this only as a temporary measure. Once they have bronze medallion we don’t have to be there as often. The most would be once a month to follow up on their training. For those of you who have contributed : your contribution are very much appreciated. Thank you. Once everything is running don’t be surprised if we are fried during next year’s OBW match. These guys are very talented and have more potential than any of us.

5. Will have a meeting soon with all waterpolo Old Boys. Hope to get more people this time as we are in need of your feedback as well. Wait for my call or sms.

6. A friendly reminder – since we are old boys and we are actually young, please make time to train yourself as well. Take it from me, next year we don’t want to rig the scoreboard as how Lat Shahriman did. If possible I’ll organize a training schedule for us and possibly a place for us to train as well.

Trip Cost

Petrol

Since this time we drove in a 1.6 Gen-2, the consumption was surprisingly close to a 1.3 Myvi. Also due to Pian’s burning desire to reach there as soon as possible, he decided to drive 160km/h almost all the time. We reached there quite earlier than expected, only we had to stop to buy carpets for his friend which was ultimately important. I told Pian – of all places and all times, you decided to buy carpets here in KK when we are having a time constraint. Whatever….

Back to consumption, i think the Gen-2 actually consumes more due to bigger CC and also automatic transmission. If it were a manual I’d say Pian would go back home with almost half a tank.

Total spent on petrol was actually RM100, but since Pian started with half a tank and refueled later, he actually reached back home with 1 bar of petrol left. So Myvi 1.3 wins…..

Total cost on petrol : RM100.

Toll

Shah Alam – Ipoh Selatan : RM26.10 (more or less)

Ipoh – Kuala Kangsar : RM3.40

Federal Highway : RM1.10

To and fro : 61.20

Note : Although enter PLUS highway from Shah Alam was slightly cheaper, but since we had to fetch Judin that came about to the same price. Basically if you’re in KL you’d spend about RM60 – RM65.

Total cost on toll : RM61.20

Food

(based on 1 person expenditure, I didnt keep tabs so this is more or less what I spent)

Had lunch before we left – RM6

Stopped at Kow Kee for pow and mee hailam – RM3 (I had pow)

Dinner at train station – RM5

Drinks on Tapah RnR on the way back to KL – RM3

Cigarettes, drinks for the journey and misc expenses – RM15

Cost does not include sponsored Gatorade and KFC.

Total cost on food : RM35.

~Total overall cost : RM196.20

This time around, a big thanx to Daniel 9701 who sponsored the trip. If you can’t remember him, he’s the Mat Salleh guy we saw during OBW `08.

Will be going to KK tomorrow, so will update again after I get back to KL. Will be driving Judin’s Myvi tomorrow. Departure time would be around noon.

Anything else, just check this blog

Long live the white sharks……….

KK trip – Thursday 12th June 2008

June 14, 2008

OB : Huddin 9498

Objective : To meet the guys personally and have at least one training session

Report :

Left KL at about 8.30 am. Reached Kuala Kangsar at 1pm. Took me quite long as I stopped at several RnRs for food and toilet breaks. First thing I did when I reached KK – lunch at YL. Afterwards, a short nap at the mosque (I got really tired from the trip and couldn’t sleep the night before I left), and I was already at the pool by 4.30 pm. Got the keys to the pool from the guard at the main gate entrance.

Attendance were 4 F4s and 5 F3s. Those who couldn’t make it had other sports to commit to.

Started training with jeda – 10 laps. None could survive after 4 laps without having a breather.

Next was floating – float in the middle, jump to the left, then jump to the right, repeat and later sprint to the other end of the pool. DId that twice

Pass and shoot practice. Everyone lines up in the middle of the pool – pass the ball to 2nd person, and sprint to the penalty line. Upon reaching line, shout for the ball and shoot.

Realizing that they lack severely in training, after each practice I had to brief them properly regarding swimming techniques, passing and sprinting. Plus, there was no point to force them through since they would eventually get more and more tired and couldn’t pay attention to what I was trying to say to them.

Got out of the pool, got everyone’s phone number and favourite waterpolo position. Chit chat for a while and by 6.15 we ended the training and told them to have a meeting later during prep hours.

Later, Cikgu Roslan came to the pool and told me more updates from HM, PIBG and even the Education Ministry.

1. Yuran Kolam Renang (yeah remember we used to pay for those during our time?) – it seems that the students are not paying the fees anymore since the pool is already a restricted area. So the funds are actually used to repair the pool. Last year alone Koleq spent about RM22k to fix the pool. Now its busted again, and the cost to repair it this time is about RM6k. What I understand about this fact is that our pool is quite antique, and the agent that repairs the pool has to be a pool repair specialist and the nearest one is from Ipoh. Since Koleq is in KK so Koleq had to sub to another company to deal with the pool company from Ipoh. Something to do with procedure – they can’t deal directly if the company is based outside of KK.

2. Education Ministry updates – if the pool is not used might as well close it down and do other stuff. Since the pool is inside Koleq, and Koleq is under the ministry and the ministry does not want any cases to arise due to the unsafe conditions of the pool (no lifeguard). The instruction came from the minstry last year. So this year the guys must have their bronze medallion.

3. PIBG wants the pool to be utilized. Yada yada. Because what’s the point of having a swimming pool if the access is restricted. Good question. Why did no one from the PIBG volunteer for a solution? Look. We have Koleq Admin, PIBG, FnRD and even MCOBA in this matter but nothing is happening to solve these issues.

4. Koleq has some waterpolo balls in their store. Koleq spent some money last year buying them. Haziq 0509 will be in charge of getting the balls out of the store and into the pool.

Prep hours, met the present boys. This time a lot more turned up. Including the F3s. F5s were not around. Their current Captain even laughed at the F4 captain (Haziq) after hearing that they were going for Perak Champ next year. Didn’t have time to meet the F5 Capt but when I do I’ll give him a piece of my mind.

Mostly was getting to know the team. At least they know that there are OBs that care and wants things to move. Only its not moving fast enough. Couldn’t chat long since I was still waiting for Daniel to bank in some cash that night. Lucky I managed to force another friend to transfer some cash, if not I would have stayed there for another day. Thanx Daniel.

The best part is, they only have 2 waterpolo balls. Somebody accidentally left the ball at the pool which I kept to pass it to Haziq later that night. Unfortunately, nobody remembered about the ball later on so now the ball is with me in KL. So they have now 1 waterpolo ball. How sad.

Here is an example of the Bronze medallion training schedule (the one i received from En Azmi FnRD). Its a microsoft word file, so I’m just going to paste it below for your reference.

As you can see, they might need to skip school for 5 days, and according to Cikgu Roslan if it is the most cost effective way then why not. The guys would definitely like it as they get to skip school for a good reason and F4s hardly want to go to class. The fact behind all this is if we were to train them to be really fit for the course then they need at least 1 month of intensive training to be physically fit. That would also mean we need to be there as often as we can since they dont have access – again. Seems very ironic that all solutions will point to this problem. So Faiz suggested that we just get the guys to attend the course (whether they’re fit or not) and get it over with as soon as possible. Having said that, will need to contact Mr Azmi again from the FnRD to draft a letter so that MCOBA can fork out the funds. I have the list of members with me so will get started on that as soon as possible.

Trip Cost

Just another reference for you guys, so that we know the minimum budget if anyone of us were to go and supervise the PBs (present boys).

Toll

Jln Duta – Ipoh : RM27.50

Ipoh – Kuala Kangsar : RM3.40

To and fro : RM61.80

Petrol

I drove my sister’s Myvi 1.3 so the petrol consumption is quite minimal and most of the time the windows are down (smokers paradise). Please note that the Myvi has very good fuel consumption so don’t expect it to be the same as your average car.

Already have about half tank before I left. Topped up another RM30. Filled up another RM20 upon reaching Simpang Pulai or somewhere in Perak. Same thing back to KL.

More or less RM50 for 1 way.

To and fro : RM100

Food

If it was Isman, I would doubt it would be the same. If it was Pian I would doubt he would spend this much either. Posting this just for fun.

Breakfast : Nasi Lemak Kampung style + Teh Tarik : RM3.50

Break : Kopi Jantan : RM1.60

Lunch : Fried Rice + Teh Ais + 2 Chicken Pow + 1 Beef Pow : RM11.40 (Yut Loy)

Drinks while driving :

100 Plus 1 litre bottle (Small one) – 2 bottles : RM4.00

Cigarettes – 2 packs of 14s : RM11.80

Dinner : Nasi Ayam + Kopi Jantan : RM5 (actually can consider as supper since I didn’t have any idea on what to eat. Only ate at 2am – on the way back to KL via PLUS highway)

Banged a biker on the way to KK, costed a side mirror and minor paintjob at the door : RMunknown.

~ Total cost for food is about RM37.30 = RM40.

SO….

RM61.80 for toll

RM100 for petrol

RM40 for food, snacks and cigs.

GRAND TOTAL : RM201.80

Note : Cost does not include accommodation, misc expenses such as shopping, souvenirs etc. One of the advantages of going alone. You don’t get diverted to other expenses.

So budget accordingly.

Anything else will be updated here soon.

By the way, a big round of applause for Topeq 9701 and Isman 9498 for their contribution this time around. If it wasn’t for them I would be working at a shop in KK or maybe one of the RNRs along the highway. Next OB to be going down would be Judin 9498 and Pian 9600, or anyone else who would like to volunteer.

Just my 2 cents.

More updates….

June 8, 2008

Managed to meet Haziq 0509, got him to do some errands for us from his side.

1.Get dates for MSSPK and Perak Open for next year. If there’s still time for Perak Open this year maybe we’ll give it a shot.

2.Deal directly with Cikgu Roslan. Since the problem started with a “very cooperating” teacher I told him to go directly to Cikgu Roslan who is also their PKHEM. The fact that Cikgu Roslan dealed with Faiz before and currently dealing with me would give Haziq a good opportunity to hustle things and what not.

3.Get balls. Collect cash from the current waterpolo guys. I haven’t actually found a cheap place to get them but when I do I’ll post it here for donations.

4.Recruit the juniors. Don’t really now how he’s going to do it since they don’t have the freedom as we used to have to visit junior classrooms. Anyways I’m sure there are corners you can cut. Right?

That’s all till now. WIll receive module from Mr Azmi in 2 days time. Haven’t called Faiz yet regarding the training module and list of contacts. Just added Danial 9701 to the blogroll.
