Sandcastle Building for VS Student Leaders


Well, it seems we enjoyed Sand Castle Building so much during our CIC that we chose to take part in the Sand Castle Building Competition organised by Beautiful Minds. Due to lack of participants, the event was cancelled but being Victorians, we still gamely showed up to lend support and show everyone that Victorians see things through. A group of Sec 4 student leaders from the Camp Instructors and Peer Support Leaders showed up just to enjoy themselves for a day before mugging for their pre-lims (part 2) after the June holidays

We started out with laying the basic foundations: sand, water and lots of pressure from compacting.

We split into a few groups to try and come up with different ideas. As the 'gang-leader', my castle got to be the best right? But alas, that was not to be. Our attempts at building the highest sandcastle tower met with the same tragedy at 9/11.
See our tragedy unfold:
Not to be daunted, the Victorian never say die attitude, we try again. This time things started to look much better- or so we thought:

And so we tried again, and again.
(At this point, I decided not to film any more- cos the bl@@dy results were the same. haiz)
Well, at least the other group got something done.

Look at their sprawling complex- can actually send them to take over the design of the uncompleted campus of New South Wales at Changi South after those buffons pulled the plug on their poor students unannouced and left them high and dry.
You can do everything right, but your castle may still crumble- life is unfair, we got to deal with it and accept it sometimes.

Well after that, we were all hungry so we proved a fact that 13 VS boys can finish 6 pizzas in under 15 mins flat. That is a proven fact.

Life-lessons learnt today: Shovelling sand is a highly technical job.

Contrarary to popular opinion shovelling sand is not an 'unskilled job' for 'unskilled laborers'- its a damn technical task, man! You need to drive power from your hips while keeping your arms loose enough to fling the sand at the right place.

Fill your shovel with too much sand, and it gets stuck and you strain to lift it from the ground. Too little and your taking a million scoops just to gather a small mole-hill.

It's good for us to labour hard every now and then (and I'm not talking about looking good and sweating it out in the air-con gym at Planet Fitness), I'm talking about getting your hands dirty with the people around you and working through sweat and grit.

Every drop of water tastes sweeter after that and man, pizza never tasted so good!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin to get real money.
It's all about how to choose a proper partner who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
