25th Asia-Pacific Regional Scout Jamboree: Sattahip, Hadyao, Thailand 2005
This Jamboree was really memorable for me. From the friends made in Indonesia (and greeting them with Bohai! which means pretty) to saying “Quit Luk Ser lah” for various stupid reasons towards the end of the Jamboree, like “Hey, the kitchen shed is dirty, quit luk ser lah” (want to learn what luk ser is? read to the end), I enjoyed every single experience of the jamboree.
Though I am down with a sore throat and a bad cough (plus flu and fever yesterday) [BIRD FLU?!], this is the kind of once-in-a-lifetime experiences I’ll never forget. Oh yes, I’m down with homework too.
I’ve collected some badges from here and there, although I think the experiences are much more valuable than the badges themselves. I’ve also gotten the Bhutan scarf plus the Nepalese scarf, and the Philippine, Vietnamese, Bangladeshi and various Thai woggles. Plus a Philippine hat.
Well, the experience I value most is making friends from Singapore, like those from RV Eagle Scouts (combined act. next year?). Frankly speaking, I’ll talk to them more than those contacts which I’ve gathered from overseas. I also got to know some friends from Clementi Town Griffin Scouts… and so on…
By the way, I’m thinking of shifting my operations here. Though most of the talk will be about Scouting. Let the teachers read all they want.
Luk Ser means Scouts in Thai.
