On the 9th of January 2009, the exco of CSSUPM had gone to the La Salle, Klang for the Exco Planning Camp(EPC). Unfortunately, not all of the Exco can make it for the EPC as they are busy with the university compulsory activity. The exco which can't make it for the EPC are Mr. Kevin and Ms. Emily. Never the less, the show must go on so off we go to La Salle, Klang at 7.50pm from UPM. The whole journey took roughly about 1 hour and we arrived at the destination at 8.55pm. Everyone was curios or should i say it as worried of how the place will look like. Most of us didn't expect much after hearing what clement has to say about the place we choose to run the EPC before hand. But we were all amazed at how good the place is. There is even a sink in every room and the overall cleanliness of the place is superb!
On the nex morning, the first session started with a morning prayer before the breakfast which is at 8.30am. That is what in the tentaive though as the reality always tend to be different. The breakfast caterer came late so we have to fill the time gap with some praise and worship session. Luckily we have our guitarman Mr. Clement to play the music. But unfortunately, Clement didn't remember the code of the song so here come our next guitar man Dr. Kenny to do the job. So the praise and worship session goes on until the breakfast finally arrived. Only then can the session go according to plan. They they are break time in between session were most of the photos are taken.

At 12pm, the lunch caterer has arrived with Indian food. It really does taste good though as what Cik Devebra and Cik Valecca said.

We get to rest for 2 hours as the lunch time is from 12pm to 2pm. And Clement and Gary would not miss the opportunity and quickly went to the room to take a quick nap. As what show in the photo, Gary’s Bed is the thickest among us all.

After the BBQ, we no longer have any session planned for the day onward. So why not a little praise & worship session with lots of dancing and singing after the heavy meal?

11 January 2009
On the third day there, we are getting quite exhausted and some of us woke up late that morning. Breakfast did come on time on that day though. Then the discussion continues on at 9am but was interrupted by some undisclosed incident.
~doing the dish washing chore is so fun...~

At 12 noon, it was lunch time again. As it was the last day of the camp, the lunch on that day was quite extravagance.
~Jency wondering what is the pointing thing~
~group photo session with Fr. Chris and the Alumni~
At 4.15pm, the camp has officially ended and everyone was frantic trying to pack all their belonging because the bus will come at 4.30pm plus the fact that the tea break is also at that time. So you can see some of the Exco with sandwich on their mouth while being busy packing their belonging. Some even carry a cup with hot tea in it while running all over the place.
~Tahniah! anda hadir hari ini~
~sleeping faces in the bus~
At 6.45pm we safely arrived at UPM. After all the planning and discussion at the EPC, we the EXCO of CSSUPM would like to ask for the cooperation from all the CSSUPM members to make all the careful and tedious planning a success not for us but for all of the CSSUPM community. We would also like to send our utmost gratitude to Fr. Chris, Dr. Kenny and all the alumni that has been guiding and taking care of us all during the EPC. GOD BLESS
