Orientation Group Leader Camp @ Meridian JC

Very simply put, I signed myself up to be a group leader for Meridian JC's 2nd orientation event for the second intake of JC students coming in after the Joint Admissions Exercise, so this meant having to take part in a 2 day 1 night camp in school for some leadership training and to test out the new concepts to be carried out during the actual orientation. Being the nifty guy I tend to be nowadays, I took my (mum's) Canon Powershot to snap some shots and have something to talk about on this blog.

Of course, nobody seemed to mind.

Plenty of stuff happened, but I'll just highlight the more interesting ones. I was supposed to be in charge of an obstacle game station located at a far, obscure end of the school as part of a certain 'amazing race' activity, and this is my crew. We were initially stationed behind the library, and equally obscure place in school, but got shifted to the end of the sports gallery due to the rain. So there we were, setting up a relatively easy obstacle course for our game which I'd like to call 'IRL Snake', meaning you play your favourite cellphone game with real people.
Got a lot of good feedback on that, but the most interesting thing about the whole event was when I was inspired to include a bonus game, just mere minutes before the event started, when I saw a crew member stash the fake prize money into one of fifty two lockers located just beside the course for safekeeping. (You can barely see the row of lockers to the let of the picture)
I immediately set up the whole row of lockers for use, and conceived the bonus game parodying Deal or No Deal, where contestants try their luck at locating the prize money after they've completed the first game by opening up 6 out of 26 lockers (I feel really blessed not just because we had lockers in our vicinity, but halving them exactly gives you 26, just like the real deal), failing which they have to do a forfeit. The end result was excellent, and everybody in the obstacle game station agrees that during Orientation, wet weather or not, we should be located at the obscure corner of the school known as the sports gallery.

The next day was the same thing, except I was not in charge of any station and was involved in the actual game, and that it was held in the Central area of Singapore. My group had to shuttle around first from school (in Pasir Ris) to Clark Quay, then to Harbourfront (where all 17-odd of us managed to squeeze into one lift at that unknown mall located beside Vivocity; see 1st picture), then to Dhoby Ghaut where we had lunch at Long John Silver's (and were serviced by this kindly old pirate; see 2nd picture), then to Somerset and Orchard for some 'fooling around' (see 4th, 5th and 6th pictures). Along the way we collected a bunch of rather interesting items (see 8th, 9th and 10th pictures)...

By the end of it all everybody had gotten pretty tired. I immediately seized the opportunity :P. If you see anything 'strange' in these photos (you know what I mean), you MUST tell me, cos I need to know and I WANT to see.

Look for at $100 cheaper consoles, minor but welcome upgrades, and more pressure on Nintendo and Microsoft in the gaming console market wars.

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Today I found this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Play Ps3 tournaments for cash[/url]
They say you can play online Fight Night game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?

Hello guys! I run a budget tattoo salon in Toronto. I used to buy all tattoo stuff at really low prices but my supplier killed himself (believe it or not) so I'm looking for a good tattoo supply seller (preferable online) to buy tattoo stuff from. Here is an example of what I am looking for: Tattoo Supply. Thanks in advance for any ideas folks! PM me or send me an email: triple6tattoo@hotmail.com
