Outdoor Cooking, 30th August 2014

Written by: Cheong Yew Meng, Assistant Sixer & Scribe

“Beep….beep! HORSESHOE!” The Senior Sixers blew their whistles. I immediately gathered together with my Sixer .Doing my job as a new Assistant Sixer, I helped the others get in line. After horseshoe, we gathered in indian file. Baloo scolded the scouts that came late and the scouts that were missing parts of their uniform. I hoped the scouts have learnt their lessons and not repeat the same mistakes again.

For this week, we have a fun and interesting activity – Outdoor Cooking. All of us are going to be transformed into mini-chefs and cooks! We started cooking at 10 am. The most challenging part of Outdoor Cooking was to start a fire using only twigs and matchsticks. With the assistance of the Leaders and the learning from the recent Sixer Training Camp, we managed to start the fire. I was in charge of cutting the fruits and vegetables. After finishing cutting, we brought the food to cook! We cooked egg with crabmeat, fishcake with bean sprouts and chicken wings! We went to the canteen to eat our self-prepared delicious cuisine!

Time really flies every time when we have fun. Very soon, it was time for dismissal. We got into our horseshoe and did sunset party. And we went home feeling happy and satisfied.

Only 3 matchsticks?? How to start the fire??

Help please??

Hmmm.. let me try!

Master Chef in the making 

Look at our yummy meal!
