KEMBARA PERKASA @ Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

21 Mar

We had our first ever overseas trip with teenage boys and girls over the March School Holidays. Conducted from 10- 13 March 2012, It was a hit with 33 participants and it became the most adventurous trip ever!

We departed from Singapore Changi Airport at 7.30am and reach Vietnam at 9.30am (Vietnam time).

All the participants commented that this experience has been beneficial for them as they learnt basic life skills and they even get to go shopping at the famous ever Behn Tan Market which is just opposite our hotel!

To top it off, it was a memorable journey and one that leaves a memory in our hearts.

We thank all of you who have participated in this journey with us and look forward to many others in signing up for this event on the next upcoming camp which will be on June, 2012.

Here are some pictures for you to look at!

At Singapore Changi Airport….

Look at the sky view! PERFECT! Some of our participants had a first time experience boarding a plane, so it was a perfect sight for them to see this. Furthermore, with great company of friends and great mentors from Ain Society, they were enjoying their plane ride. A perfect school Holiday getaway, we must say!

At Ho Chi Minh City, Loading our baggage into the bus storage. Oh My, did I mention, we were super thrilled when we reached Vietnam?

Just look at some of our female participants who took a picture with one of the villagers from Long Ho Village.

By Zayana Zakariah, 14

To me, Kembara Perkasa is something that you can’t experience anywhere else. It thought me the true meaning of life, It showed me the life outside of our own world and to show us that life is not about what we want. Not to forget, I’m not the shy girl that I used to be. I’m able to speak up and it made me become braver in everything that I do. I’ve benefited a lot of things from Kembara Perkasa. It changed the way of my lifestyle and I’m glad to be in this Kembara Perkasa. 


To those of you who are interested to sign up for your children, do wait for our further updates on late may because we are doing it again on June 2012!
