Kenneth (Macho Man) QM What did you learn? Well I have learnt to give better briefings and debriefings to others now. Im more courageous in clarifying doubts by asking questions instead of just keeping quiet and smoke my way through any activities. Learnt that everyone in the committee plays an important role in the camp. If anyone of us are unable to complete the task, the rest of the committee have to do extra work to finish things up. What is the most memorable event in LTC?The most memorable event in the LTC is the late night meetings. To be honest, Icouldnt really process anything that goes in my head during the meetings on thefirst night because I was too tired but seeing everyone being as tired as I am, I feelthat I had no excuse and decided wake up and pay attention to details which areimportant to the next days activities.And the final session where you can see how the campers have changed from thoseshy/quiet dunmanites to those outspoken and enthusiastic leaders! Seeing theprocess of how they are slowly cultivated to become leaders is what makes thiscamp most memorable to me.

Benjamin Goh Sea Act What did you learn? I learnt how to properly tie the fishermens knot, clove/half hitch and square lash. I also learnt how to brief and present more effectively as well as how to better manage time/stress in the face of a very stressful time. To top it all up, I learnt how to lower a flag :D What is the most memorable event in LTC?For me, the most memorable event would have to be during the second rotation ofsea activity (with Rubino and Amenthyst). Their enthusiasm, friendly jokes, and theeventual success of the raft left a deep impression on me, probably because I wasreminded of my LTC Group (Leo) the year before.
Benjamin Goh Sea Act People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. I would like to take this chance to thank my department AICs Shu Ya and Mandel for being there for Sea Act even when our IC Seng Cheong went MIA.

Lastly, would like to thank my teachers for giving me this opportunity to continue serving the school in this very special and meaningful way. Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.Sea Act does not have any dirt secrets.... I think :D 0 pushups
Raj GA What did you learn? Hanging the Instructor lanyard down my neck for the 9th time, not only do I look forward to imparting what I have learnt thus far and sharing what Dunmans servant leadership culture is all about, I love coming back for the people - both new and old. As much as I wanted to work at a more intimate level as a FA, being back as GA I/C did allow me to hone the skills of the Sec 3 leaders and new main comm members at a higher order of creativity, preparatory work, organizational skills, ability to be forward-looking and seeing the bigger picture. What is the most memorable event in LTC?I‟d best remember LTC2012‟s Campfire Night amongst many others I‟veattended, mainly due to the variety in programme and involvement of groupvolunteers and FAs (many thanks to the MCs!). But especially because of the waythe night ended with the Mass Dance and everyone got together in a great circle toslow-groove to the final emo song of the night! Showed the true LTC spiritconsisting of the campers, subcomm, subcomm of LTC2011, the alumni and theteachers.

Farhan GA What did you learn? Throughout the camp I think I learnt to always look at the bigger picture, and start making decisions on my own, that will benefit the whole camp. Also, to not be afraid to change things or try something new as I know now that change is sometimes for the better :) What is the most memorable event in LTC?The most memorable has to be having the campers come up to me and thank me forthe little things, like belaying them, and saying how they enjoyed synergy or nightactivity etc. It really made me feel satisfied with myself, GA dept, and LTC! I thinkseeing that the campers appreciate what we do and to see how much they grow ismost memorable.

Jolene Koh GA What did you learn? Ive learnt that confidence is very important in every part of life. With confidence, we can make do with what we have; such that problems encountered may even become things that help improve the original idea. Skills like making decision on the spot and reacting to problems impromptu are also being learnt during this LTC journey. What is the most memorable event in LTC?The most memorable event in LTC would be the Night Activities planned by mydepartment! I can never forget how SiHui was being tortured by instructors JiangLiand WeiXin right in front of my eyes. I remembered I even supported the idea ofletting them draw on SiHuis face. I feel so sorry for SiHui because at that point oftime I really dont have time to get anyone else to help her with her cats makeup. Soyes, thanks SiHui for the "sacrifices" made. This rare funny experience with theolder instructors was indeed memorable!

Leo Rui Xin Ele What did you learn? Hmmm, I think I learnt to eat faster during LTC because when we have washing point duty, we have to eat like mad and get to the washing point before the campers do. If we dont theyll destroy the washing point and well get punished because we were not there to supervise them. What is the most memorable event in LTC?The most memorable event during LTC was belaying the campers! Yay! I reallyenjoyed belaying them because1) its really fun2) I like encouraging people3) I get to feel this sense of pride for the campers when they overcome their fear(s)and/or complete the activity

Rubino really can do anything just for points, 他们居然睁着双眼说瞎话, they toldhow pretty and sexy I was, even though I know they didnt mean it but I was happyfor that one second?
Sung Mei Yee Ori People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. I would like to thank Instructor Hector who had help me greatly during Orienteering at the Unexpected Mission. We were behind time and the groups had to be gathered at the playground. To be honest, I find it chaotic, and in my mind it was chaotic. However, Hector got things organised like almost immediately. Really grateful for his help from the very start till the very end of Orienteering. The way he reacted to the situation really hit me that there is still a long way for me to go!

Sherrie Soh Ori What did you learn? I learnt that team effort is really important. Try to plan a whole camp like LTC alone :O all of the instructors really made an effort to put aside our differences, learn and work together and I truly believe that is what makes a good leader. GO LTC!!! And I am so proud I know how to tie knots and stuff like that, feel so much more OUTDOORY (i know that isnt a legit real word). hmm.. sleep was already important to me from the start. What is the most memorable event in LTC?HAHAHA The fire drill. All the campers were like O.O in the middle of the night.But I felt that the fire drill did carry a lot of importance and that the incident hadactually discipline the campers a lot more and sped up their sense of urgency. YAY.GO FIRE DRILL!!! and we did do pumpings after the drill. Where can you experiencefire drills? ONLY IN LTC... and during a fire... of course.

See Wee Siang Ele What did you learn? For me, I think that I must always remember to think carefully first before I say anything. There are times like during debriefing, giving out instructions when I suddenly forget what I wanted to say or maybe I just stutter on my words and talk rubbish. HA. Another skill I learnt is that I know how to belay! It is so cool, though Im still not sure with the figure-of-8 rethread. What is the most memorable event in LTC?I think that the most memorable event is the high elements componet. Seeing theSec 2 leaders overcoming their phobia , failure and giving their all really makes mefeel touched and proud of them. Additonally, it also makes me feel honoured as weplayed a small part in improving their character development!

Amelia Ali QM What did you learn? I learnt so much things its impossible to fit them all right here. But Ill try to pick a few. I benefited so much having gone through this camp and learning all the things that I wouldnt have learnt myself. For instance, the different knots for sea activity and high elements. I might not have realised it before, but now I know something that my siblings and most of my friends dont muahahah. Thats something to be proud of. Apart from that, through all the adversity, I managed to flower and become a better leader; a better person. Its all the things that I pick up everyday in those four days from everyone around me, even the secondary 2 leaders, that made me grow this much. woots. What is the most memorable event in LTC?Personally, the most memorable event for me is the entire 4 days of camp from Day 0all the way to Day 3. I learnt the most during those four days. Not only have Iflourished as a leader, Ive also flourished as a person. Not only that, it was thosefour days that brought the special bond that I have with the fellow sub-commscloser. This entire LTC, from our first meeting up till the last day of the camp, is, Imust say, an experience like no other.
Amelia Ali QM People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. I really want to take this opportunity to thank all the main comms from all the departments. Im really grateful to all of you for all the assistance you have given me throughout the four days of camp. To my main comms, I really am gratified to the three of you for guiding me through this LTC journey. All of you were the ones who taught me the most and I really look up to you. If it wasnt for you, I, beyond any doubt, wouldnt have flowered as a leader. Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department. I dont think we actually have a dirty secret. But well. I do know something that the rest dont. My department might not be as 27 bonded as the rest of the department is- given the nature of QM-pushups but it doesnt matter. What is most important is we remained together up till the finale of LTC. We might not be the most appreciated department, but from behind, we get to smell the success of LTC. And be pleased with ourselves. And well, although the bond we hold is not that strong, a bond is still a bond.
Lai Si Hui F&B What did you learn? I learn To be responsible for my words and action. With greater roles also come greater responsibilities! I learn how to protect my own shoes tooooo!

Sim Tian Tian Ori What did you learn? I have learnt to work with different types of people like people who are stricter, very serious in the work they are doing, people who do not put as much effort as others, etc. Sometimes, it may be hard working with them, instead of complaining, we should find ways to work with them to get the things done. I think this is a very useful learning point as I am sure next time in the workforce I will meet some people whom I do not like and because of that I cannot just stop doing the work required right? What is the most memorable event in LTC?To me, it is definitely the 100 pumpings, 50 crunches, 50 sets of jumping jacks andrunning around all in one shot. Its the first and last time I hope I will be doing suchphysical exercise.

What is the most memorable event in LTC?A memorable (but stupid event) would be destroying„ Mei yees cards twice becauseI didnt know how to use the laminating machine properly...

I also learnt that we have to set the good examples for our junior to follow. these are the main things I have learnt but there are many more others. What is the most memorable event in LTC?When I read this question, everything about LTC just come flowing through mymind. I think that LTC itself is the most memorable event. Maybe, I could say thatI flew while belaying...or maybe Jiang Lis punishment...and the apologising tocampers on the last day for being irresponsible.
Chua Ming Rou Ele People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. I think my department will agree on this secret...hehe...in our department, the word test tube is any form of word.

Lee Jia Jun F&B What did you learn? I learn that we must all work together to have a successful camp. No one is a lone ranger and no one stands out as an individual. The success of the camp requires the effort and dedication of everyone and I believe without our main coms and all the organisers or planners, we would not give the campers an enjoyable and unforgettable experience. What is the most memorable event in LTC?My most memorable event in LTC is belaying people during the high elementsactivity. Being the first time belaying, I practically had a good go of how it is doneand I had alot of fun doing it even though it might be tiring. The satisfaction itbrings after I safely belay the person up and down the rope course or rock wallmakes it a really enjoyable experience.
Lee Jia Jun F&B People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. Erm I just basically want to thank everyone involved in this LTC camp and gave me a wonderful experience of how LTC is like and with this being my first time attending the camp, it was really an eye opener for me.

How to build a raft (that actually works) Usage of Fishermans knot - we usually teach it just to join two ropes, but another usage would be to tie up the barrels with the pipes. What is the most memorable event in LTC?The 2nd session of Sea Activities - its the session where I learned the mostregarding raft building.
Mandel Teo Sea Act People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. Teachers, Camp chief and Deputy camp chiefs for giving me this chance to be here. Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.Either my department is too clean or the dirty secret is about me o.0 0 pushups
Leow Gim Ann Ori What did you learn? I truly learnt the meaning of, "action speaks louder than words". That ones actions will truly inspire the young leaders-to- be, instead of one blabbering away with lots of words. A leader just have to prove it with actions. "Do it, Prove it, Dont just say it." Theres no such thing as a NATO Leader. What is the most memorable event in LTC?It was definitely during ResiLANE, although it was super overran, I really felt thecamp spirit and the energy oozing out from every trainee. The euphoria inducedfrom the excitement from the campers really made me felt that this game was worthit - it was worth the time and effort and brain-cells killed to plan for it.
Leow Gim Ann Ori People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. Firstly, it would be my two lovely asst, Antony and Meiyee, who had been supporting me. Next, will be my subbies, for tolerating my "perfectionism" and killing much of their brain cells. And of course people who came to help orienteering in preparing our equipments, Xinee and Abigail. And lastly, RAJ! For the moral support u kept giving me with regards to my proposal, a really BIG thank you for that. :D Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.I guess my whole department will just suan one person, but I shall not add on to it. I want to saythat someone in my department is scared of "BANG BANG BANG!" :D 0 pushups
Yasmin QM What did you learn? Ive learnt to be a better leader and to step up more. Ive also learnt to be more outspoken so that I can interact more with the campers. But the most important thing Ive learnt is self- sacrifice, to put others needs before yours. What is the most memorable event in LTC?Jiang Lis morning PT for sub-comms ;)
Yasmin QM People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. All the main comms, especially my department Ics who were always there for us :) Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.I dont know hahahaha but I think Xin Ee and Kenneth look good together :) 0 pushups
Zulfiqar GA What did you learn? I learnt how tiring belaying is, especially if you belay 6 people continuously. I also learnt that SLEEP, can make MIRACLES. 7 hours of sleep = A FULL DAY OF HYPERNESS AND RANDOMNESS :D What is the most memorable event in LTC?CAMPFIRE NIGHT. Best part, even though there was some hiccups here andthere, I had fun emcee-ing as I could see that the campfire night brought smiles toeveryone, teachers, instructors and campers (:
Zulfiqar GA People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. I would like to thank my department ICs for being AWESOMEEEEEEEEE.

And we all have a crush on someone (; WOHOOOOO Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.TOP SECRETRaj would always come 15 mins later than the time given (eg. meeting to do props at 1200, Rajcomes at 1215)HAHAH IF YOU SEE THIS RAJ DONT KILL ME xD 0 pushups
Xinyi GA What did you learn? Ive learnt that in many things that we do, in teams, groups and stuff, its not just about getting your own part done and just stand by the side, waiting for the others to finish. Building the team spirit and helping them out with their tasks not only gets everything done faster, but it also shows that we care about them. :) What is the most memorable event in LTC?I had the least amount of sleep I ever had on the first night.. AND the PT we hadwith instructor Jiang li.. it was.. really memorable.. :X
Xinyi GA People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. I want to thank everyone!! Especially our GA dept IC and asst ICs..

GA is the most awesome department? I dont know.. XD 0 pushups
Tay Shao Jie Advisor What did you learn? To me, the rewards I gained from participating in LTC year after year (this is the 6th year I‟m back) is always much much more than the hard work I put in. The satisfaction of the campers succeeding in their activities; the sub coms evolving from campers the year before to full fletched young leaders who are able to lead their juniors; to main coms learning how to manage a team, solving unique problems each year; to myself, serving as FA to Elements IC, to Camp Chief and finally Advisor, I‟ve learnt so much that defines who I am today. What is the most memorable event in LTC?The most memorable event has to be each time the campers get punished(pushups, run) It is always during times of suffering where people learn the most(pardon me for sounding sadistic as I didn‟t do pushups for a long time already, but Ithink it is true. HAHAHAHA) During those times you will see instructors fussingover the campers, checking if anyone is hurt or unwell, then proceed to take care ofthem. To me, that show of concern is more than enough to warm the ham (cockles)of my heart.
Tay Shao Jie Advisor People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. I would like to thank Wei Xin, for being there all the way; Jean, for NOT being there all the way (just joking, I know you still care even though you are faraway enjoying life in Japan, having lots of fun shopping, looking at pretty Japanese girls…… no I‟m not jealous. Really. Okay, maybe just a little. Alright. I‟M VERY JEALOUS); Jiang Li and Yong Zheng for helping out in every way; Joel, Kenny and Shaheed, for making this camp YOURS; all the Main Coms for the hard work and OF COURSE all the Sub Coms for JOB WELL DONE!!! Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department. Within the Advisors we like to walk around acting busy (in my case, taking photos) while the camp is running, simply because we don‟t have much to do. We like to laugh at small little things 0 that the campers are forgetting, simply because we know thatpushups they are going to get punished afterwards. (Missing mess tin ah? HAHA! Good one!) Then during times when we are needed – not often, like debriefing and whatnot, speak from a high vantage point because well, really – we are the only ones who can. We love our job. Seriously. Well, I do.
Lynn Sea Act What did you learn? I learnt how to be a better leader and how to debrief + speak in front of crowds! I also learnt how to tie knots!! Before being in this camp, Ive never actually known how to build a raft. OH, and I definitely learnt that sleep is very important! NOT FORGETTING SUNBLOCK TOO :D (im super tanned right now) What is the most memorable event in LTC?I cant choose!! Definitely our Morning PT where we had to do 100 pumpings, 50sets of 8 Jumping Jacks, 50 crunches and running from huts to huts! The Sub Commperformance was really memorable too :) Oh & The search for Li anns file + 2 otherlanyard nametags. (Our punishment was the morning PT we did)
Lynn Sea Act People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. I would like to thank sea acts assistant I.C. (Shuya & Mandel) who have been helping us all along since we dont have an IC :( All the teachers who bought prata for us :D (yummm) and every single person who is part of this camp who made it such a memorable one for me! :D Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.WE LOVE HERSHEYS SUNDAE PIE 0 pushups
Preeta GA What did you learn? I learnt that people can bond through punishments..After the punishment we got, all the sub comms became very bonded! What is the most memorable event in LTC?When the sub comms performed; we were really all in this together.
Preeta GA People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. I wanna thank all my dept ics, raj, jolene and farhan! and not forgetting my dept people! I really learnt the true meaning of team when spending time with them and while preparing for LTC. I also wanna thank the main comms who believed that I could do it and all the sub comms who made my time in ltc very very memorable! Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.we didnt bathe on day 1... 0 pushups
Ng Jia Min F&B What did you learn? I learn to tie knots during sea act. Also, I learn how to brief campers and debrief too. I also learn that I can sleep for 3 hours and still do lots of physical activities . My eyes are like =_= on the second day.... What is the most memorable event in LTC?My most unforgettable event is the pumpings. Even though at the start, many of uswere grumbling but eventually everyone kind of got used to it.I also cannot forgetthe toilets there as I encountered millipedes and somehow scared me since I did notsee them until they were so near to me.Also, I lose a lot of sleep since we slept lateat 2 plus during the first day. Before I knew it , it was time to wake up so I was verytired on the second day but I still tried to keep my energy level high for the campers:)
Ng Jia Min F&B People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. I want to thank all FB main coms. They help us out a lot and give us chances to do things like briefing and debriefing since we have never done it before. They also help us out anything no matter big or small. :) Also, not forgetting all the main coms , sub coms, camp chief and deputy camp chief :) Without all of you, LTC would not be such a successful camp ! Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.ERM NO SECRETS HAHA ! :P 0 pushups
Yong Zheng Advisor What did you learn? I have learnt that a leader is never complete. There is always something to learn, something to improve and something to experience. I have learnt that failure is a better teacher than success. The pain will make you remember and cherish the moments you have suffered together with everyone. There is always a chance to learn specific skills in your own time, but learning in a “safe-to-fail” environment is very hard to come by. What is the most memorable event in LTC?Definitely LTC 2003 at Labrador (old bird), I will never forget the chilling feelingaround my body when I encountered the weird behaving uncle, the uncomfortablylong corridor and the suspiciously-clean storage room. That year was definitelyunforgiving for those who were there. Be it the fire-drill activity or the “faceless”murals. There are still other memorable events in LTC, but this is ranked topmost!
Yong Zheng Advisor People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. Well I have no crush or favourite instructor, but I do want to thank the following for this long LTC journey. Firstly, I would like to thank Mr Bernard R Bagtha for making this LTC journey possible and being such a wonderful servant leader. Secondly, my two very good friends (Gim Ann and Jiang Li) who have been with me in my leadership journey. Lastly, the various instructors that have shown me there is always something new to learn and improve on, and my leadership journey will still go on when I stepped down from LTC. Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.Too many cooks spoil the broth. :) 0 pushups
Kang Ling Ori What did you learn? I learnt a lot, from leadership skills, being patient with people to time management and stuff. Its helpful as we will encounter all these stuff in the future; its long term, you see?:) What is the most memorable event in LTC?Screaming my head off at every chance during campfire! >.< :) And playing puzzleswith my department. Haha.
Kang Ling Ori People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. I want to thank people who helped my before and during all this time.At times I was so stressed that I wanted to give up...but you guys kept me going on. Thanks so much! ^^ Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.Xie Chao thinks he looks hot in red,but I think otherwise. XX pushups
Xie Chao Ori What did you learn? I learnt to take initiative rather than following others. Often, the first step is the hardest to step out but once you had your first step, the following steps come naturally. I also learnt to communicate better with people I have never met before with. What is the most memorable event in LTC?The morning pt given by Jiang Li, 100 push ups, 50 crunches & all the running...
Xie Chao Ori People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. Gim Ann for always guiding &helping us throughout the orienteering proposal & treats from him! :) I would also like to thank Mei Yee for sharing her JC life with me & told me to work harder now & in the future. Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.No dirty secret!! 0 pushups
Amos Khoo Yong Jun Ori What did you learn? I Learn skills such as debriefing, belaying. I learn values such as having initiative and responsibility as a leader. I realise that we tend to react to unexpected situation at certain point of time. An example would be probably if someone couldnt make it for an activity the other sub- committee would have to think of solution, which is why I felt that reaction is something I learned and its very useful. What is the most memorable event in LTC?The most Memorable event would be Day 1. It was great to see the campers sobonded in their groups and looking at them so delighted of attempting the activitiesplanned by the various department.
Amos Khoo Yong Jun Ori People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. I would like to thank Orienteering department, and other departments. Basically, I would just say every single person who is in the planning committee for LTC 2012 ! For putting the effort to come up with the fun activities which build up the camp. Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.I think that Christin is cute, but I have never told her or admit that she was even she askedonce before. 0 pushups
Jean Advisor What did you learn? LTC is a journey that is filled with many life lessons (I am sure many of you will agree). From 2003, where I was a trainee, where I have to jump down from my bunk bed during fire drill to being an Advisor where I understand the rationale and planning behind the entire LTC, this journey brings not only experiences but also GREAT friendship! KUDOs to all fellow LTC-er.. You guys made LTC 2012 a splendid camp! What is the most memorable event in LTC?WEI XIN....!!!!Formatting of proposal & balancing of budget...." Proposal must be TIMES NEW ROMAN FONT 12 HOR....." , " WHY NO PAGEBREAK~!", " WHY never wear JEANS & SHOES to proposal meeting?!!!"
Jean Advisor People/person you want to thank in this LTC journey. er hmm.. Definitely Gim Ann & Shao Jie... (It can be your dept ic, fellow sub com, someone you have a crush on (like gim ann), your favourite instructor (like shao jie) and so on! *winks* "Too Thick face le =)" Bonus question: Name one dirty secret from your department.Shaheed love to smell things wherever he goes.....
