~~~~MY MEMORY~~~

This memory I will remember for the whole of my life. When I was study in Labuan Matriculation College (LMC), I went to camp located at Kampung Tempurung, Kuala Penyu, Sabah. Actually, I didn’t want to go for that camp because I was not interested to go to the any kind of camp or co-curiculum activities.
On that historical Friday, all the participants need to gather around 11.00 am. My friend and I was coming late to the gather location, therefore, we got free lecture from the lecturers.Fuhh..what a bad day. Then after heard some briefing from our head camp commandant, we leave LMC around 12.00 pm. I’m really wanted to run back and hope this camp got last minute cancelled. From Labuan, we need to take a ferry to the Menumbok, Sabah. Then, from Menumbok we will proceeded our journey to the Kampung Tempurung at Kuala Penyu.
We arrived around 7.00 pm and after a long journey, we couldn’t take any break because we arrived so late and we need to build camp before night became darker. Our camp commandant became angry with us and all of us got punishment which pumping around fifty time. On that night, we did a lot of activities like ice breaking and games.
Second day, I need to wake up around 4 am because I became one of the ‘centri’ which my duty was to guard my friends safety. Beside that, I need to boil water and immersed mee to be our breakfast on that day. Early in the morning, all of us jogging at the beach. So refreshing and calming. After breakfast and heard instruction from our instructor, around 11.00 am, we had jungle tracking. Very tiring and I had to faced a lot of difficulty before arrived to the finished line. The most difficult one is I need to across the river. After jungle tracking, we had games which is like explorace. The most embarrassing one, I need to sing Titanic song to got a clue.
On that night, we had cultural night which is we need to present a performance to the instructors. Then, the most scary one, we had night walk which is we need to walk alone in the darknest around fifteen minutes.Fuhh...like a nightmare.
Third day, like the day before all of us had jogging. After that, we work together to clean up the village. Then, we got games. So enjoyable and all of us felt very happy even we felt so tired. But not everything leave us a sweet memory, until now i’m regret for what I had done during that camp. Because of me, all my friends got punishment which we need to pumping more than one hundred time. I felt so sad because became so coward and because of that incident I learned that the most valuable things in my life. Lets the incident became secret and only certain person knew it. Because of this camp, I can’t heard these two songs ‘mungkin nanti’ and ‘ruang rindu’.These songs will make me sad and will automatically remembered me to this camp.
All of us left the village around 2 pm after the ceremony. When I was in the ferry, i can seen very beautiful view, sunset in the sea. I’m feel very happy because I can saw it with my lovely one..hehe..We arrived at LMC around 10.00 pm.Even I’m felt very tired like don’t want to wake up again, but I can learn so many valuable things in my life. This memory I will keep it inside on my heart for the rest of my life and I will not going to forget it. Let it become a lesson for me and also to all my friends.

my favourite fruit~strawberry~

Garden strawberries are a common variety of strawberry cultivated worldwide. Like other species of Fragaria (strawberries), it belongs to the family Rosaceae. Technically it is not a fruit but a false fruit, meaning the fleshy part is derived not from the plant's ovaries (achenes) but from the peg at the bottom of the bowl-shaped hypanthium that holds the ovaries.
The Garden Strawberry was first bred in Europe in the early 18th century. This represents the accidental cross of Fragaria virginiana from eastern North America, which was noted for its flavor, and Fragaria chiloensis from Chile, which was noted for its large size.

Strawberry cultivars vary remarkably in size, colour, flavour, shape, degree of fertility, season of ripening, liability to disease and constitution of plant. Some vary in foliage, and some vary materially in the relative development of their sexual organs. In most cases the flowers appear hermaphroditic in structure, but function as either male or female.

Strawberries are picked at their peak and do not ripen after harvesting, so select berries that are bright red in color that have a natural sheen with fresh looking green caps. Avoid strawberries with green or white tips. If boxed in cardboard or other paper products, pay particular attention to any dampness and/or staining, especially at the bottom of the container. This may be evidence of significantly overripe, even decaying fruit. Store strawberries in the refrigerator in a single layer on a paper towel in a moisture proof container. Eat them within 48 - 72 hours, or freeze them. Do not wash them until you are ready to eat them, or they will become mushy and moldy

The origin of this indigenous dance is not clearly known but it is believed to have been in existence along with the Iban tribe since the 16th Century. The Ngajat dance is believed to have been performed by warriors on their return from battles. This dance is now performed to celebrate the most important harvest festival called ‘Gawai’, to welcome important guests to the longhouses and so on.
The male dancers wear large feathers as part of their headgear, hold an ornate and long shield in their hand with chains, beads and a loincloth called the ‘cawat’. The female dancers have an elaborate headdress, chains, beads and a ‘dress’ that reaches to below their knees with intricate weaving. Traditionally this dance was only performed by male dancers but not anymore.
The dance is arranged straight lines and in a circle and does involve dramatic leaps and jumps performed by the male dancers.
Gongs and other ethnic percussion instruments such as the ‘enkeromong’, ‘bendai’, ‘canang’ and ‘dumbak or ketebong’ provide the music. The musicians may be either male or female.


Coffee is a brewed beverage prepared from roasted seeds, commonly called coffee beans, of the coffee plant. Caffeinated coffee has a stimulating effect in humans. Today, coffee is one of the most popular beverages worldwide.

Coffee was first discovered in Eastern Africa in an area we know today as Ethiopia. A popular legend refers to a goat herder by the name of Kaldi, who observed his goats acting unusually frisky after eating berries from a bush. Curious about this phenomenon, Kaldi tried eating the berries himself. He found that these berries gave him a renewed energy. The news of this energy laden fruit quickly spread throughout the region.
Hearing about this amazing fruit, Monks dried the berries so that they could be transported to distant monasteries. They reconstituted these berries in water, ate the fruit, and drank the liquid to provide stimulation for a more awakened time for prayer.

Espresso, a recent innovation in the way to prepare coffee, obtained its origin in 1822, with the innovation of the first crude espresso machine in France. The Italians perfected this wonderful machine and were the first to manufacture it. Espresso has become such an integral part of Italian life and culture that there are presently over 200,000 espresso bars in Italy.
