The name of the obstacle course is Tears of the Sun but one look at the course and I bet this obstacle course will be renamed to Tears of the Bloggers instead. We have to get into muddy waters, climb up and get down into the water and get to the end of the line as a team. Though by the end of the obstacle course and wet experience, I have to admit that this is one awesome team building process. I think it further strengthen our friendship and bond with each other even though at the beginning of this tour we have never met before.

Anyway, back to the Tears of the Sun. The reason this obstacle course is called “Tears of the Sun”, according to Zul is because it is done when the sun is beating on our backs and we have to get into water and work with our team mates in order to win. So, make sure you work together and don’t leave anybody to drown OK!
Although I have no idea how they pick a winning team, I am guessing it has something to do with supporting each other and completing the obstacle course at a certain time. Like I said in my last post, I am in group 2. There are 5 teams altogether. Before we start the obstacle course, we have to hold the hand of those opposite to us and then work out to making a big circle. This puzzle didn’t take so long.
Right after that, we have to run (well, we just walked actually) for about 1km towards the obstacle course. Climb some hills before jumping into the water, how fun. *sarcastic*
Once at the obstacle course, we are told to go in by groups and not at once because the course isn’t big enough for ALL of us. Group 5 was the first in. While we were waiting and Group 5 was in the third muddy pond, we heard Suzan scream and saw Hafiz holding her shoulders, probably trying to calm her. My group members was wondering what happened. Somebody said “snake” and I heard somebody else said “frog”. So, I repeated the word frog, hoping nobody is going to freak out from doing the activity.
(In truth, it was a snake, and a pretty long one too according to Fie who was in the same group as Suzan).
We went in, got out, climbed up and jumped into water again. My white shoes became the color brown. I was lucky to have guys in the group because they help a lot in pulling me out of the water, especially since my wet shoes already weighed a ton.
By the end of the obstacle course, everybody was soaking wet but we surely had a lot of fun. We even celebrated by doing the macarena. Even the splinters in my hand does not deter me from following Hijrah dancing. We ended the obstacle course with some shared experiences by some of the bloggers. Zul said this is one of his favourite team because we are so fun and happening. We’re bloggers, of course we’re a happening lot!

So now is time to shower and to go back to where we started. I wished we could stay at Awana a day longer but alas, we can never always get what we wanted. There will always be a goodbye after a hello. The experience we had though, is nonexchangeable and will remain in our hearts forever.
