Review ; Campfire.

On the 16th of July, 11 of our fellow scouts attended a campfire held by 10th Petaling Scout troop of SMK Sultan Abdul Samad. The theme of it was 'Medieval Havoc'. It was their 6th annual cultural night. Many schools attended that night, including SMK Sri Sentosa, SMK USJ 8 etc. The night started of with traditional dance, the dancers held small tea plates and dressed as if they were going to perform Silat. After that, each school had to their own troop roll call. Not to disappoint, 73rd Petaling screamed/roared their lungs out and was certainly very semangat. One of the highlights of the night was the watermelon eating competition. Melissa Lim and Han Wei Wen were among the 10 other participant in the competition. The watermelon was karate chopped open with their bare hands (Alright maybe not, it exploded on the floor) and they dug into the flesh of the watermelon like animals. They definitely put boys to shame. Very entertaining indeed! There were sessions for everyone to mingle and jingle around with everyone else. Numbers and facebook names were exchanged, friends were made, everyone had an exceptionally good time :) Not forgetting the exciting dance floor at the end of the night although it was slightly odd dancing in full uniform. For those who could not make it, not to worry there will be many other campfires in the future.




Oh lord, this is what i call scouts.
