We the Maincomm of Logs/Welfare pledge ourselves to be one united people, regardless of school, age and religion, to support and create a successful FOC, for the committee, seniors and the freshies. We do transport, accomodation, food, drinks, first aid, deliveries, planning, shopping, manual labour, backstage. We are mostly unheard of, rarely seen. The stuff we do, no one knows. BUT, the stuff we do, makes a difference.
This whole post is dedicated to us guys. Some called us superman, some said we were SKWs, some took us for granted, some didn’t even bother to say thanks, some said that our job was easy, some said we were slacking, some wondered why we were not with the OGs, some said this, some said that.
But in our hearts,we know we were simply doing our job, and doing our job to the best of our abilities.
During those 5 days, we were always away from camp, either busy with food/snacks or busy purchasing stuff for the camp inventory.
Talking about that, we were total aunties during the preparation period + actual camp la. Super fun, yet super embarrasing. Our receipts are super long, with like countless items being scanned through the barcode scanner. The real aunties at the checkout counters are always overwhelmed. Their faces ALWAYS light up when we arrive at the counter. They will also get more people to help pack/scan/load the items. We would feel so happy seeing those bewildered looks on their faces. It is either us, or the money that they can potentially earn.
Remember the days….
1) Remember the days when we had to change our dollar notes into coins to be able to get more trolleys
2) Remember the days when we had 3 trolleys to lug everything around
3) Remember the days when we had fun clearing out the shelves of NTUC/Sheng Siong/Giant
4) Remember the days when we needed 2/3 people to help push/jumpstart the trolley.
5) Remember the days when shoppers stared at us like zoo animals
6) Remember the days when we braved the cold rain to get supplies for our hungry campers
7) Remember the days when packetdrinks/food/people flew about in the van because of centrifugal forces
8) Remember the days when we missed important sessions of the camp, all because of purchasing stuff for people
9) Remember the days when 3 of us went around shopping for the best deal, like total aunties.
Remembers the days … … … So many in my head, yet so hard to put into proper sentences.
Thank you both for the memories I had. I am so glad that we are all in this together. Got to know the both of you much much better through the time spent figuring out stuff, acquiring equipment, and just plain chatting/gossiping. haha.
Once again, thanks for the memories.
