Memoirs of a Sea Scout: Entry 006

I was relieved that the EXCO was open to my suggestions. Like I said last time, I didn't know what I should do. But after a few days thinking, I found the balls to see the EXCO to tell them my suggestions. They not so fierce if you know them. Is true they won't simply scold you or angry. They are approachable and can speak anything with you but must be right time. When serious must serious. When play can joke around. This is correct way.


Heyyaz ppl, just wanna wish all the mighty sea scouts who are currently having their exams Good Luck and All The Best. Remember, never give up although times are hard as well as studies.
And remember this well.

Serial Raping Of Pantai Kerachut

Pantai Kerachut Turtles
I've found my visits to Pantai Kerachut recently relatively less pleasant than the ones before and things will get worse now especially when the sanctity of our beloved home is being continually raped by commercial vultures.
A TURTLE-shaped rock in Teluk Bahang, Penang, is poised to gain prominence now that the surrounding beach will be promoted as a turtle sanctuary.

Fishermen in the area used the rock as a reference point for fishing purposes.

But now, with plans in the pipeline to promote the area as a turtle sanctuary to attract tourists, the turtle-shaped rock is poised to be a significant landmark for turtle watchers.
Will I be able to enjoy a tranquil getaway from civilisation like before? I highly doubt it. What are your thoughts on this? Full article here.


08online just wanna wish all the third formers Good Luck and All The Best in your PMR next Monday.

Note: To fifth formers, Please study hard.

Goodbye Boys

A Malaysian movie based on a scouting trip will be screened on September 22 and 23 on a limited basis while the DVD will be released nationwide on September 25. So what's your take on the movie? For context, read the article here and here. Here's an excerpt of the article:
Goodbye Boys

Updates* TV in the Canteen, Is It For Real??

It has been awhile since you people are updated on the happenings in Penang Free School. Here are a few of the recent happenings.

In the recent weekly asemblies, in the speech by HM Mr Hj Ramli Bin Din, he challenged the students to an extraordinary deal. In one week, if the students are able to keep the canteen clean and up to standard, he WILL install a 29inch television equip with Astro Channels. He jokingly said students will be able to watch CNN and Bloomberg (students was boo-ing and laughing), and also be able to watch football and Akademi Fantasia (cheers and thunderous applause from the students).

PFS Canteen

He also stated that he will not speak on issues concerning problematic students anymore (what previous HM's and Senior Assistant Mr Abdul Latif had done all time during assemblies) and will start to bring the school to a higher level. He says for years the school has tried to help in many ways to assist this problematic students and it is time for this to stop, as it is slowing down the school from progressing. His proposal was to ask the individual to be transferred out from the school, rather than waiting for the school to expel him.


This might be a bit late, but as the saying goes *better late than never*. Hence, I am here to wish all Sea Scouts which is having their PMR, SPM and STPM Trials Examination, Good Luck`!! Make the Troop proud.

The newly appointed batch of leaders will be stated as followed.

Merdeka Countdown

The 49th Independance Day of our country is just round the corner, to be exact you may view the countdown timer above. Under the new Principal, he has planned a Countdown Camp for selected 20 students from each uniformed body. On the 30th August Wednesday morning during school hours, there will be the marching competition and in the evening the Camp will start. Those not involve may visit the camp on the eve of the Merdeka Day for the Merdeka Countdown, sweet.

From what I had heard, there will be laser light presentation on the school's main building (whatever that means) and the Merdeka Countdown will come with fireworks when the clock strikes 12am.

I am just here to wish all the viewers of this site a Happy Independance Day and let the spirit of Merdeka burn in you. Btw, no school on Thursday. Wheee`


Memoirs of a Sea Scout: Entry 005

As I was nosing around at the scout den one afternoon after school, I heard some heated discussion inside between a few people. I paid more attention and realised they were my seniors and the topic of discussion turns out to be the indifference of us junior scouts towards scouting life now.

One of the seniors who I respect said this:
Majority of the junior sea scouts seem to show no interest in sea scouting life. Most of them say its just a waste of time whereas there are some who still think its interesting. They never seem to put much effort and take the initiative to learn knowledge or ask us questions by themselves. If we didn't push them, no progress would be made. What else can we do other than telling them the benefits of scouting and the fun of it? It is something they must learn to like on their own because we cannot force them to do or like what they don't.

Memoirs of a Sea Scout: Entry 004

The 'coffee break' was exactly how my seniors warned me before this. The EXCO Kopitiam memang very ganas. They open shop to certain people only. Not everyone is so 'lucky' to experience the kopitiam. You must get invited first. The 'coffee' they serve you can really be so hot it can force tears to come out from your eyes. Don't they have Coke or 100plus instead? The 'coffee' can be really bitter to taste. All I did was just fall asleep. Can you blame me? I was really so tired. After hiking for two hours and the hot sun hitting at us which could easily cook an egg, I just fell asleep. The leaves were just so nice to lie on. They just felt like my mattress at home compared to the beach sand which kept on getting into my underwear. Geseran lah! The shade that the trees provided and the breeze that blew on my cheeks were just like the aircond in my room compared to the scorching sun out there. I just couldn't resist it. Can you really blame me for that?

Inter Patrol Competition : Football : Results

The gruesome football match between the 8th Georgetown (South) Venturez ™ and the 8th Georgetown (South) Juniors had finally ended. It was a match filled with spirit, courage, luck, anxiety and most of all, teamwork. The match fell into the hands of the 8th Georgetown (South) Venturez ™ when they overpowered the 8th Georgetown (South) Juniors to a final score of Venturez 4 - Juniors 0. The 8th Georgetown (South) Juniors were in a state of depression due to their loss in the big game. However, like any other 8th Georgetown (South) Sea Scout, they didnt give up and will be training for the second football match at the end of the year. VS Ong Kuok T'jun (striker) scored 3 goals while VUS Lau Ka-Yin managed to score 1 goal due to his lawak skils. Kudos to the winner of the match and a big round of applause to those who attended the meeting.

Inter Patrol Competition : Football

The football war is on as the all time champions, Penang Free School's very own 8th Georgetown (South) Venturez™ is challenged by the 8th Georgetown (South) Juniors. They claim theirselves to be -undefeatable-....BUT!!! we shall see the payoffs of prob ATL Jeffrey Lee, Prob VUS Moy Wei Sern and VS Ong Kuok T'jun's 'special' training during the past weekend. Both teams will strive their hardest to earn the 8GTS cup during this heart-pounding and exciting game. Will the juniors get past the mighty defence of Prob Vul Kelvin or will they be able to score through the ultimate wall of strength/defence of VS Matthew Ng. Everything will be revealed after the match. Tickets are going on sale with a minimal price of RM 2 per spectator(lol jkjk). Good Luck to all who will be participating.

Venture Unit Leader Kelvin Lim aka kel, and not to forget our advisor and longest serving moderator Lee Kuan Shern aka kshern (applause please). In the whole duration, 08online has gone through 3 major layout change and this new one is to commemorate the 1st Anniversary of this site I suppose (thanks once again to kshern).

Vicissitudes of Fate

If your tongue and eyeballs got all twisted and tied-up just by reading the title of this entry, don't worry...you are not alone. Some Eye-Mo and Vanilla Coke should just do the trick (eye-mo goes into the eyes and vanilla coke goes into the mouth and not the other way around of course). :P

If you do not know the meaning of that phrase which was chosen as the theme for ASSTC 2006, you can choose to google it up yourself or may I suggest you make a trip to the school grounds, have a visit to the camp and ask the EXCOs themselves. Maybe you can also contribute some of your old grand-scouter-in-law stories for good measure just to spice things up. ;)

Details of the camp which begins tomorrow can be found here.

Another Great Loss

I have recently received news that Mr. Ooi Boo Chuan, an Old Free which passed away yesterday evening while having a game of hockey in Ipoh. Mr Ooi is in the Board Of Governors and also one of the committee members in the Old Frees Assosiation Penang, I think he was the President of the OFA for year 2004/2005.

From what I heard, his cause of death is due to an arteriole block which cause heart failure while playing hockey. The news of his death was very unexpected as he was known as a fit and healthy guy. He was very active in sports during his schooling days and still is active in various games such as badminton and golf. He was an active scout in 7th Georgetown South and was the Troop Leader.

He is known for his endless dedication to the Grand Old Lady and it is a great loss to us Frees. His love and dedication for the school truly represents a true Free. Sorry for the inaccuracy of certain details, because as for me, I barely know him but my godfather which is an Old Free himself knows him. My condolences to his family and close friends. You may contact the Old Frees Association for further details.

He has a son and a nephew which is of course currently studying in a school, which school u ask? where else if it is not Penang Free School.

Memoirs of a Sea Scout: Entry 003

Have we reached?, I asked. Yet there was not a single soul who would respond. We took a few more steps ahead and saw a bridge. It looked like the type of bridge which appears in pirate movies due to the way it's built. On one of the steps leading to the bridge has the word 'Welcome to Pantai Kerachut' engraved on it. With every ounce of strength we raced ourselves across the bridge with wide opened smiles on our faces and landed ourselves on the smooth sand on the beach. It was 6pm in the evening.

Another 40mins Of Horror

This is gotta be a bitter news to all students of Penang Free School. There have been a few changes done to the school and this particular change will sure affect the most out of us. It is the changes done to the timetable of every form. In the old system, an average class period is 35 minutes but in the new system, an average class period is 40 minutes. This is because the Principal (HM) Mr Hj Ramli b. Din is complying with the Education Ministry 31st December 1997 Act whereby it is stated in every school, each period must have the minimum of 40 minutes.

Farewell, Mr. Sober

I've just received news that Mr. Sober, a former teacher of Penang Free School passed away last night at the Adventist Hospital here in Penang. I remember him as a very jovial person, always smiling and laughing. However, make no mistake, he did have a temper and you wouldn't want to be anywhere near him when someone stepped on his tail. You can always depend on him to enliven things up when events were a bore. He would cheer up any room with his mere presence.

So on this very day in the PFS Hall, there was the Form Six Orientation which was conducted by the school admin. This means u can see many of our students taking a chance to pass the school hall to *scope* for _____ (u know wad I mean guys).

Congratulations to those selected to be in PFS. As I was browsing through Friendster Bulletin Board a few days ago, I found this interesting song lyric dedicated to all form6 students going to PFS. If you had heard of the song You Are Beautiful by James Blunt, u might find this funny, so enjoy guys~!!

2007: One World One Promise

One World One Promise
On 1 August 1907, Scouting Founder Robert Baden-Powell blew his kudu horn on Brownsea Island at 08:00 to open the world's first Scout camp. Soon thereafter, Scouting began to quickly spread around the world and now exists in 216 countries and territories.

2007, the 100th Anniversary of Scouting is an opportunity for us to demonstrate the unique value of Scouting to the world and to celebrate the achievements of 100 years of Scouting. The single theme for all events and activities for the Centenary of Scouting and the 21st World Scout Jamboree is 2007: One World One Promise.

However, the 100th Anniversary must provide a platform for the development of Scouting and not only celebrate the past 100 years. 2007 is the dawn of a new century of Scouting. We should celebrate the future of Scouting and look to how we can improve it to meet the needs of even more young people, their families and communities and offer better and bigger Scouting worldwide. We must seize this moment and prepare well in advance to share our successes and achievements.

Memoirs of a Sea Scout: Entry 002

After a week being in the troop, I passed my tenderfoot test and learnt up stuff such as drilling(in other words marching), axemanship, first aid, and knots. It was very interesting when I found out how useful these things will be in the future. In the mids of February, the seniors announced that we will be having our first camp of the year which is Pantai Kerachut hike and camp at the end of February. My heart leaped with excitement as the days passed by, getting closer and closer to the day of our camp. Many preparations were made for this camp. Every patrol was told to build a torch as part of the competitions. I hardly got any sleep the night before the camp as I was too excited to do so. I kept asking myself, "how would the camp be like?", and curiously wondered on. The day of the camp finally approached. We all gathered at our UMP( usual meeting place) and got on the bus that drove us to the other side of Penang Island which was also known as, 'The End of the World. We sang some scout songs and made some jokes on the way. It was really fun. After a while, we reached 'The End of the World' and brought all of our stuff out of the bus. 'The End of the World' was a kampung area filled with fishing boats. A ranks was called and we were told to move in a straight line. It was about 400 metres from the bus stop to the start of the hike and another 2800 metres to hike up to Pantai Kerachut. It was hard and tiring hike as we crossed over two mountains to get to our destination. After two long hours, we were still making our way through the vast jungle. It was very dark in there because it is hidden from the sunlight. We forced ourselves to move on eventhough our legs were tired out from hiking while carrying our bags which weight a ton. I realized my body couldnt take it any longer. I was about to drop out when I suddenly saw a light.......

Ujian Pertengahan Tahun 2006

Heys everybody~ ujian pertengahan tahun is around the corner so just wanna wish all of u all the best and study hard. Make your family and all of our brothers sea scouts in our troop proud. Prove to the world that 8gts Sea Scouts are strong physically and mentally. As they say, a great scout is a smart scout.Good Luck!!!!!!!!

Scouting - Dead or Alive?

One question usually pops up during conversations among former scouts - "Is scouting still alive?" The sustainability of scouting is not a problem faced by the scouting movement in PFS only. Other scouting movements are feeling the heat too. So, is scouting still alive? I've to admit, there were times when I conceed scouting was as dead as a doornail...until I saw these pictures of the flagpole used during Troop Takeover 2006 sent to me recently. If you want to have a larger view, you can browse each of them here.

Guess who replaced Mr Loh??

The new appointment of the Senior Assistant of Administration has been announced. The person that will continue the former PK1 Mr Loh Hua Sin is none other than Mr Goh Teng Keang. Yes its him. Some of u all might know him as your Physics teacher, the teacher which won quite a lot of awards in Physics competition, the strict disipline teacher which some u all have a grudge against and the thing some people always tease him about is his white hair which is not due to old age but in the genes i suppose. His appointment is due to certain factors and the HM Mr Hj Ramli bin Din trust him to do his duties well as a Senior Assistant.

I feel Mr Goh is suitable for this post (who else besides him is suitable??). Maybe he will give a revamp to the current administration to provide better service etc etc to the school which will lead to the improvement of Penang Free School.

So here, 8th Georgetown (South) would like to wish Mr Goh Teng Keang good luck in his future undertakings as the Senior Assistant of Admin and hope all students will give him a chance to perform his duties and cooperate with him

The Fall of One Empire Leads to The Rise Of The New Empire

Huh?? Whats does the title means?? Its just a title just to catch ur attention thats all. Just writing this to inform u guys on the new Principal of Penang Free School. Woohoo~ Lets celebrate, new HM at last. The outgoing HM, Mr Haji Mohd Yusof bin Omar has been transfered to SMK Sg Acheh after serving in PFS for about 1 year 7 months only. This is some information i have obtained from his farewell speech. Penang Free School is the 12th school he has served in total of 27 years of teaching. He claims he has visited over 200 schools in Malaysia, which is a great big deal for him. When he first stepped into PFS, in his opening speech, he said he will be in this school for not long and its true, as he has left already. Every school he has been, he said he has always stressed that self discipline is very important.

Penang Scouts Association To Form Special Task Force

Story taken from The Star:
Scouts to form task force

THE Penang Scouts Association will form a special task force and scout affairs committee by the end of the year to provide voluntary service and promote scouting.

It will comprise about 200 selected scouts who will be trained to respond immediately to emergency situations.

Penang State Scout Commissioner Haji Zulkafli Kamaruddin said the association was in the midst of improving its administration and the task force and committee were its first step to achieving the aim.

The number of scouts in the state had dropped badly and scouts were not active as before, he said.

Results of the Cross Country 2006

The morning started of badly. When i arrived in school, it was drizzling and i thought the cross country was canceled (which was wad everyone was hoping for).

It started of with the Aerobic Exercise/ Dance and the students as well as the teachers had loads of fun. Than the cross country started of with the girls, followed by class 3, class 2 and then class 1. The rain of course didnt dampened the spirit of Frees as students *ran* or u can call it walk. Lolx. Later after that was the prize giving ceremony. Guess who came up top this year in the cross country??

Memoirs of a Sea Scout: Entry 001

It was my first day in PFS. My heart beat got faster and faster each second I got closer to the Grand Old Lady. I got out of dad's car and walked up to a bunch of ex-primary schoolmates of mine. I was so glad to see them as I did not like one bit the feeling of being alone. We entered the halls of the well-known school in Penang island. It was very humid in the hall as hundreds of students crammed in there for the first assembly of the year. It was long, but interesting. The principal was an interesting person as he seemed very friendly. I walked in shyly as I entered my first class which was History. It was rather amusing when the students payed so much attention to the teacher not because of her lessons but because of her figure, lol. The students went on a rampage when the bell for recess rang. There was a huge variety of local hawker food sold cheap in the school canteen. I ate to my hearts desire. During recess, there was a few seniors that persuaded my friends and I to join their scout troop. There were 3 scout groups which is 1st Georgetown South, 7th Georgetown South, and 8th Georgetown South. Apparently, 8th Georgetown South was the only sea scout troop in Penang. I grew an interest for this special scout troop. Because of that, I decided to join the 8th Georgetown South Sea Scout Group and I managed to persuade some of my friends as well. After school ended, I got up my school bus and head straight for home. I learned a new word as well, 'pak chiu cheng'. Hmm....wonder what it means.

This is the first entry reproduced from the journal of the sea scout that ran away from camp. If you have not read the prologue, you can find it here. More entries will follow soon.

Memoirs of a Sea Scout: Introduction

It's way past midnight and I'm still wide awake. What am I doing awake at this ungodly hour in the middle of nowhere? Where am I going? I do not know the answer to that but this I know - I must keep on running. I can hear my own panting, magnified through the eerie stillness of the night. Exhaustion is overwhelming my legs but I must keep on running. The events of the past two days have drained all the energy from my body but I must keep on running. I can already hear the footsteps of the chasing pack right behind me. I've come so far, I must not give up now. I must keep on running. I'm running from the Annual Training Camp.

Commemorative Wallpapers

08online Wallpapers 08online Wallpapers

In conjuction with the relaunch of 08online, we have commemorative wallpapers available for download. It represents the new theme that 08online would like to project - SIMPLICITY. You can choose from two flavours (white and black) and they are available in four of the most common screen resolutions used to view 08online since its launch some seven months ago. Follow this link to download them.

So What Else Is New?

Apart from the minor facelift for 08online, there are also some new features and content that we would like to introduce. This is part of our ongoing efforts to improve this website to serve you better. As you can see, the navigational links are now properly organised on the right sidebar, divided into various categories. You can also browse through our archives now and find that old post you've always been looking for. The download section will also be updated with new content for you to download now and then.

As you will have come to realise, we have a new content called "Memoirs of a Sea Scout". It's a totally fictional series with entries written by various contributors describing the journey and scouting experience of one particular sea scout. Please remember it is fictional and for entertainment purposes only and shoul not be taken as the truth or whatsoever. The introduction entry might seem a solemn one but future entries will be promisingly on the lighter side. If you are interested in contributing an entry of your own, even if it is only one, send it to 8thsouth+memoirs[at]gmail[dot]com.

We are also working on integrating 08online with the Troop's Yahoo! Groups for notification of updates on this site. Through the integration, anyone on the mailing list of the 8thsouth Yahoo! Groups will receive an email notification whenever this site is updated. Of course, the best way to keep track of this website is still through RSS subscriptions.

Hope you like the minor changes to 08online.

Introducing 08online.v2 - Simplicity

In conjuction with the appointment of our new webmaster - Kelvin Lim, we've decided to relaunch 08online and give it a slight makeover. We would now like to present to you a neater and cleaner look for 08online surrounding the theme - SIMPLICITY. From the funky retro look of the first 08online, we've come to a more organised and zen look that is hopefully more appealing to a broader group of people. The new 08online might seem leaner but the new webmaster has some plans up his sleeves to make it a meaner website than before. Kelvin was part of the development team when 08online was created, so we know we are in good hands here. Hope you'll enjoy your new experience on 08online with our new webmaster. Best wishes to him for the year ahead.

Thank You, Daniel Phoon!

Daniel Phoon Daniel Phoon Daniel Phoon

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the outgoing webmaster Daniel Phoon for doing a good job in maintaining the Troop website and keeping former and present sea scouts updated with the happenings in the Troop as well as the school. We hope the new webmaster will be as dedicated if not more than him in performing his duties.

Farewell Guys, Adiios, Sayonara~!!

Farewell? Wads happening?? Hahahazz. Well, i guess this will be my last official post, i will still be posting but not that frequent, the guy which is gonna succeed me will be Prob Venture Scout Kelvin Lim or some of u all know him as otak square aka unknownbreaker, oopzz, jus jk Kel.

Well, being the webmaster made me realise there are still people who are already out from school but are still devoted to the troop by contributing in many ways. This is one of the reasons this website is so important and useful, to get the information about the troop out to them however far they are from us and the website also keeps former and present sea scouts updated on the matters and upcoming activities concerning the Grand Old Lady.

First Assessment Test

The First Assessment Test or commonly known as the Ujian Prestasi 1 is just round the corner.

Wishing good luck to all Sea Scouts taking their test and make the troop proud.

A reminder to all Juniors, Be Prepared for the Pantai Kerachut Hike and Camp.

Founders Day

The 22nd of February in the scouting calender is known as the Founders Day. For those who doesnt know, Founders Day means the day the founder of scouting movement, Lord Robert Baden Powell was born. Without him, there will be no scouting movement and the 8th Georgetown (South) will never exist today. Founders Days was formed to remember BP as he passed away on 8th of January 1941 and was burried at the Kenyan Hills. BP's death was a great loss to the scouting movement worldwide.

Links related to BP:

Tribute To A Lil Man

Well today was the last day of working for one the most dedicated teacher i have ever seen in my time, he has been in Penang Free School for about 31 years and 9months or roughly almost 32years. Indeed 32years is a very long time serving in PFS and is so happens that PFS was the 1st school he taught and the only school he have ever been in since being a teacher. Have u all guess who is he?? He is none other than Mr. Loh Hua Sin, our Senior Assistant of Administration. Some of u might recognize him through his shinning bald head. Lol.

To celebrate his retirement, there was a special assembly for him. Mr. Latif gave his speech, followed by the student representative Head Boy Yeoh Jit Wei and than the teachers representative Mrs. Ruby Mangalam Janet. From the assembly, I learned a few things about Mr. Loh.

Shaolin Monks Of PFS

As you all have already known, there are some changes of rules done to our school. I am just here posting this to keep u guys updated~!! The changes of rules are aimed to improve the schools discipline and also the admin believe that with the changes our academic results will improve also claimed by Mr. Abdul Latif.

These are some changes done when school reopened.
  • There will be no more streaming done to all forms. All students are divided randomly into different classes regardless of their position in the whole form. Each class will be having an equal ratio of Chinese, Malay and Indians.
  • The name of the classes also has been. The names like Zamrud, Delima, Nilam, Kecubung, Baiduri, Jed, Topaz and Mutiara have been changed to Budiman, Harmoni, Tekun, Gigih, Pintar. The reason is that the admin wants to get rid of the thinking that Zamrud is the 1st class followed by Delima, Nilam etc. Admin says that now all classes are the same. There is no more such thing as the 1st class or last class.

Gong Xi Fa Cai

Happy Chinse New Year~!! I would like to wish all Sea Scouts, ex-scouts and jus practically everyone Happy Chinese New Year. I hope the year of the dog would be a prosperous new year for u guys and good luck in the future. Gong Xi Fa Cai~!! Dont forget to send me angpaus, hahaz. I cant believe it, after this CNY everyone in PFS must be botak d. The Shaolin Monks of Penang Free School. I think we are gonna be Malaysia's first English Educated Monks ?? We should be proud of it ?? Lolx.

Attendance is compulsory to all Sea Scouts from form1 to form5. So wad do u guys think of the outcome of the Recruitment drive gonna be?? Is 8gts gonna be succesful or will it be 7gts??
