Freshmen Orientation Camp
FOC turned out to be fine despite all my apprehension and reluctance to go at the beginning. The games played were quite fun and I am glad that I had gone in with an open mind and with an enthusiastic spirit. Fortunately, my OG mates too were really great and we bonded really well as an OG. Go zephyr!
The girls in our OG though quite different (Maybe in a sense less garang than the ventures) were really sweet and considerate people. There was no fighting over the chalet toilet etc. To think I was quite ‘homesick’ on day 1 perhaps because of some subtle difference of this camp as compared to my other camps. It was back to the days of being a camper and having to cheer and be high at all times, and having to please the game masters and OGLs. However, it was not as bad as I thought it would have been. It didn’t feel all that degrading. Maybe just a tad bit. But it really was not so bad, maybe cause I understand the efforts and the amount of work done behind scene now that I too also have lots of experience with planning for camp. It made me appreciate what the seniors had done for us and it was not as degrading afterall. It helps too to have a bunch of OG mates who were high on oxygen.
The programme on the first day started out quite badly because of the rain. And the quest had to be shifted indoor. Nonetheless, it was still quite fun. Two memorable events from the quest. For a games, the guys had to take off their tops to let us step on in order for us to cross the ‘lava’ land. One really funky OG mate of mine decided to take of his bottom instead much to the horror of us all, OGL and game masters included. But we’re all fooled cause he was wearing 2 pants (for what I have no idea… haha). Another game was really lame. We were made to lie on each other’s tummy and say ‘haha’ for as long as we can without anyone in the OG laughing. It gets dry after a while cos it’s really not funny. Day 1 ended with a telematch which got us all dirtied with flour, water and mud. And the night closes with our S.P. preview, in which we got to talk to our SP for 3 mins blind folded. Hello? Isn’t it blind date? Please stop denying it man.
Day 2 saw a tremendous improvement in our team spirit. Everyone was so psyched up for the treasure hunt game. And we managed to emerge the top scoring OG for this section! Woohoo! And the night closes with our SP revelation and SP walk which was both corny and stewpid. SP revelation was really darn stupid and funny. The girls (us) were made to sit in one row in a room and wait for our SP to come in blind folded. And as they call out ‘honey’, we were to respond saying ‘darling’ like ewww… Yes and so the girls we protested like crazy to our OGL but to no avail. And we ended up doing a role play with him instead. He became the brothel owner cum mamasan cum pimp cum bouncer cum guard cum cashier of our budget red light destrict. It’s quite hilarious actually as we assumed our roles and got ourselves real crazy. Luckily, my SP was quite a gentleman and not so bad looking s my night was fine. Except that some games are really sick. Like having to feed your SP this TINY bit of seaweed mouth to mouth and biting a mentoes into halves simultaneously with your SP. Shit I so rather die. Oh yes and not to forget picking up Super Rings placed on different parts of his body using your mouth and feeding him once again using your mouth. EWW. Sick. And we had to hold hand the entire time during the whole walk with checkpoints of games but ok lah at least I don’t have a sick SP.
Day 3 morning ended with more cheers, more rah and A LOT of cam whoring before we broke camp. Haha.
So that’s all for my FOC. Overall still quite fun!! And it’s also comforting to know that quite a lot of my OG mates especially the girls share the same feeling that I have. Oh and it's a small world afterall! turned out that my OGL was justin's and nic's senior and they know each other. how cool
Flying off tonight to UK for 3 weeks! Hope to have loads of fun and forget about my woes for the time being. To cookie monster, don’t elmo! ☺
