Cameron Highlands

Gary sent me an e-mail regarding the Cameron Highlands and Endau-Rompin field trip. Gary is an environmentalist who organizes camps and programs for students and staffs of various industries. I first met Gary in 2007 during the program Our World PETRONAS where I was one of the UTP facilitator for the program and Gary as the CEO of EDUTree who organized the program collaborating with PETRONAS. (My picture even got into the newspaper I tell u :P)

So as the program was a big success, Gary and his assistant Hannah had always been keeping in touch with us ( the 7 facis from UTP) and invited us for their events. The latest event was the F1 something in UTP somewhere in the end of March 2009 but I couldn't join because I've got a class field trip to PETRONAS Penapisan Melaka.

Field trip la sangat....

So I've decided to join the Cameron Highland field trip at the end of this month. I didn't know much about the details yet. Gary said he will call me sometime this weekend and will e-mail the program leaflet 2 weeks before the event.

Some of the e-mail content:

"We will camp at the Forestry Dept campsite in Tanah Rata. Details on how to get there and map will be in the leaflet. The camp site is pleasant (although toilets are not fantastic) and there is a clear running stream right beside it. Camping and trekking up various peaks throughout the 4 days.

You will need to arrive on the 28 June, latest 4.00 PM to settle into the campsite. I will provide tents or alternative accommodation. Please bring along your sleeping bag (if available) sweater and raincoat etc. A list of things to bring will be in the leaflet as well.

Main role would be to brief participants upon check -in, manage camp and oversee the campsite when students are out in the field. Of course you can also tag along with the trekking groups if you decide as long as there is someone at campsite each day."

Can't wait to be the facilitator to those international students. Jaga lah korang~~ akak ni garang :p

P.S: Oh, these are pictures of the F1 event where Nick Heidfeld and Robert Kubica also took part. Ruginya tak dapat join.. tapi field trip Melaka pun best jugak. he he he
