If you follow my post on Kursus Manik Kayu (Wood Badge), you’d notice that there’s no Kursus Manik Kayu 2 right? Well…we had Kursus Manik Kayu 2, but it’s in the form of an assignment. In Kursus Manik Kayu 2, we had to lead a team of Scout and conduct activities for them for three months, including one camping activity. Then, we had to write a report about it. Failing to do so, will disqualify us for Kursus Manik Kayu 3.
So, since I managed to attend Kursus Manik Kayu (KMK) 3, that means, I passed my KMK 2. Huhu!
Now, what happened in KMK 3A? We attended this course at Sarawak Scout headquarters in Kuching. There’s still a lot of lectures went on and less time camping in the woods. Although, we built a camp using the A tent, we rarely spent our time there. Most of the time, we were in the classroom. We had to cook food ourselves.
We were divided into patrols and these were my patrol members.
There was a session called “Backwood cooking”. We decided to cook chicken in a bamboo. It’s called “ayam pansuh” in Iban.
When I was hungry and there wasn’t enough time to cook proper meals, I had an instant noodle. Hehehe
As I said earlier, we spent most of the time in the classroom. So, we had to wear the Scout uniform all the time.
For the course, we were given several tasks to complete, One was building a model pioneering project. I built a tower.
Two, a “pacang”. Can’t remember how do they call it in English. Sorry.
Four: To weave a Gilwel Woggle
Finally, to conduct a Scout flag raising tradition.
All in all, I really enjoyed the lessons and I hope to teach others about Scouting. Till then…have a nice day yeah?
