It is monsoon season now in Kuala Terengganu or for the most of the East Coast area. It has been raining, quite heavily at times on and off. Fortunately, no alert of flooding yet, alhamdulillah. Luckily the weather was not as wet about 5 weeks ago (24th - 26th October) when I participated in a camping training programme organised by the NGO, IKRAM. It was a 2-nights and one-and-a-half-day affair and this time, as opposed to the Mukhayyam Dakhili (Indoor Camp) I attended last year, it is Mukhayyam Khoriji which is an Outdoor Camp. Yes we had to sleep in tents and do a lot of outdoor activities... I'm not actually an out-doorish kind of person and what with being stricken with OA (osteo-arthiritis...not Old Age, ok), participating in this kind of activity is the last thing on my agenda! But..what can I say, it's part of a training programme and being a senior member..have to set a good example for the juniors...haha
Last year we attended the indoor camp at Anguilla Resort near Kuala Terengganu but this time we had it at Merantau Inn near Dungun. About 80 participants attended (ladies only) from all over Terengganu...and we had loads of fun..Here are some pics of the event:
Well, I managed to survive the camping trip...knees aches and all, alhamdulillah... Anyway, this may be the last time I attended a camping trip with the Terengganu sisters as we are leaving Kuala Terengganu soon. The hubby is at the end of his contract with PERMINT..
