“I didn’t trust my rope, until I jumped off!”
-Giang, Grade 9 student from SSIS
Do you have a fear of height? Ever wondered “When will I ever get over my fear?”. Well now is your chance, I had a fear of heights too. However I got over with one jump, you are tightly harnessed to the safety rope attached to a coconut tree(Which is very safe). When you reach the top, you feel like you can see a whole new world. Rather than, just an island with a lot of great food. When you go up, you walk on a strong bamboo stick and reach to the middle. You have to jump off, getting the mind set to jump off, is quite hard. It also felt very safe and not safe at the same time. You know you are harnessed, but you get the doubts.
The skywalk was a really fun activity, because I got to get rid of my phobia. Everyone was cheering for each other, It was a great experience.
“It’s sure is tiring! But it’s worth it!”
-Ms. Alexander, Teacher from SSIS
Ever tried Community Service? For those of you who has, yeah not an easy work. But hey, it feels great to help other people. At first when I arrived, I was like “What? we are gonna work here?” However, something got me to work. It got me obsessed in working for the one in need. I felt very good after this experience, this got me closer to a few people. I also got to learn how toilets work, quite useful. It was a lot of fun being active and helping each other, It was never easy though. There was a lot of inspiration like how grateful I should be for what I have when other people don’t have. Every time I went there was a motive, that got me to really participate in the action.
Helping the people in need is the most blessed I have done so far. I never felt good this way, something was different in the joy I experienced. It was fun.
“THE FOOD THER IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE SCHOOLS!”
Khoi, student at SSIS
Looking for food, that is sanitary,delicious and nice? In bintan resort Loola, they serve great food! Chicken nuggets, fresh juice, milo and Indonesian traditional food. They also provide breakfast, lunch, and dinner. How nice is this? Serving three meals a day and not just that, you get to experience the traditional Indonesian food. It has fried rice, fried noodles and curry. In my opinion,Everyday is a whole new menu, it’s too boring to eat the same thing every time you sit on a table to eat.
The trip itself is good, but plus the food? The best thing that I or you can ever experience. Guess what, the rice they have their contains no calories. Go to Bintan and enjoy the food there.
