Beach Life

So, trials were over and done with. But AS is coming up in another one week. Next Monday! OMG, THIS IS SCARY.

But anyway, I thought I'd fill you in with what happened after trials. Housetrip! All houses had their Housetrips on the same weekend after trials with Diamond in Pulau Perhentian, Garnet in Pulau Pangkor, Sapphire in Pulau Pinang while Topaz went to Kuantan. Yeah, yeah Kuantan may not be the most beautiful place to be in but surprisingly, we had a fab time at our Housetrip. With comfy hotel rooms (Swiss Garden Resort & Spa), elaborate breakfast and dinner buffets, the white sandy beach being few steps away from our rooms, what's not to love, right?

I've seen how hard the committee worked in making it happen. They had some major obstacles along the way from changes in locations to shortages of funds to last minute pull-outs from the House members. It was no easy task but I think they did a tremendous job in pulling this off. At the end of the day, we enjoyed ourselves and rejoiced in the company of fellow Topazians who came along. So, great job! :)

Okay, photos. In no particular order. Enjoyyyy.

The hotel we stayed in for 3 days and 2 nights

The guys trying to make out the word 'TOPAZ', I guess?

Here's a couple of photos unrelated to the Housetrip but got them from Megat's camera anyway.

I love this photo! We look like a group of young, aspiring students kan? Hehe.

And the winning Phoenix kite that helped Topaz garnered first place in last week's Kite Making Competition
