What is Working Holiday?
Why must we work during the day that we are supposed to rest? Working Holiday is that we utilise the holidays or the spare time to do some volunteer work like helping with cleaning the environment or some other environment related works to relax ourselves and also to help the community.
The sudden down pour made us thought that this activity will be cancel. It was quite surprising that it will still be carry out as usual. Yeah~
穿上黃色雨鞋，變身成了Phua Chu Kang... (只差臉上沒有大痣><)
I turned into Phua Chu Kang after wearing the yellow boots. (I need a big mole on my face ><)
We were told about our job this time--clearing up the Morning Glory away from Small Spine Night Hade and bamboo plant. Although the Morning Glory flower seem nice but the it can affect the growth of another species that it grew on.
Tools ready and let's get to work! Working in the rain is really a fun experience.
I found myself to be like an old lady as when I was climbing up to a higher area, I got a sudden pain on my left buttock. OMG! The feeling was so suffer at that time. I almost faint but I had overcome it. After resting for a moment, no big deal for me and I turned back to be so energetic. *Showing muscles*
We often met some problem during our work. For instant, Chi and Julie broke the bamboo stem... I wonder if they are helping the bamboo plant. We were lucky as the bamboo can grow fast and a small matter like this would not kill it.
我們真的有在努力認真工作 >< 鐮刀可以用來做死神的角色扮演~
We did worked very hard. Haha. Cosplay of the Grim Reaper.
Alright, please stop criticising my laziness infront of the screen. It was a tiring job when we have to put much effort on pulling away the Morning Glory from the other plants.
The tool we used was sickle. Small Spine Night Hade is non-woody stem and thus less tougher than the bamboo. We had to becareful while removing the Morning Glory. The stems of Small Spine Night Hade is full of thorns and I had to be very alert on it.
A photo of Chi with the papaya which she used a sickle to peel it and she said this will be her lunch.
Two playful girls!
I went under the Small Spine Night Hade to remove the root of the Morning Glory.
After removing the Morning Glory, it was not the end of the day yet. We had to clear the leftover by bringing them to a dry place and somebody else will collect them.
Morning Glory is a tough plant as it can grow easily when its root meet a suitable environment. Therefore we had to handle it with care.
Chi, the witch on a bamboo stick.
Jam looked so man in this photo. Is this the effect of sweat or rain? LOL
The work began in the rain and ended in the rain. Photo session of all five of us. We looked pitiful in this photo as we had been working under the rain for few hours.
Am I tired after today's work?
No at all! As I had mentioned earlier that we are suppose to relax ourselves in working on this and we did!
What a great and meaningful day. =]
