We arrived at D 'Nelayan Beach Resort, Padang Kamunting, Malacca at 12 o’clock. Our arrival was greeted with very helpful and with open arms by the resort staffs. We are instructed to put our luggage and take the lunch that already served.The food are very appetizing lunch, our menu is white rice, chicken sambal , shrimp paste and mixed vegetables. We all ate with a hearty appetite until we lick our own fingers. After lunch, our tour coordinator has distributed us into three and four people to enter our rooms. As I expected, our room faced the sea and had a beautiful scenery, suitable for couples which is in love. In my opinion, our rooms equipped with all amenities like air conditioning, television, comfortable beds and water heater and the room is neat and orderly. Facilities at the resort is also good as there is WiFi, swimming pool, and a large dining hall. We were given time up to 2pm for rest and change clothes.
All trip participants gathered at the dining hall and our tour coordinators gave a littlebriefing about the turtle conservation center which we will visit later. Turtle conservationcenter is located near our resort. Tour bus had to be placed in the street because theentrance is very narrow and not fit for heavy vehicles, in addition, it also lies in the interior and we had to walk 800 meters to get there. Arriving there, we were briefed on the history of the place and that there are turtles there. Actually, I was struck by God's creation of this animal because it is so unique. From the information I’ve gained, Melakais an important nesting ground for hawksbill turtles as well as painted terrapins on the west coast of Peninsula Malaysia. This state has the largest nesting population of hawksbill turtles in Peninsula Malaysia, with an averange of 200 too 300 nests recorded annually over the past decade. The hawksbill turtle is regarded as one of the most beautiful turtle species due to the golden brown hue and pattern of its shell.
We return to the resort after that. When we arrived there, we saw that menu for hi tea are already served. After that, we were given about 10 minutes to put our thingsin the room and changing our attire for beach activity. We were divided into three group and each group had 12 members. There goes, Red, Blue and Yellow Team. The First activity is we were asked to do a sand castle based on the shape of sea creatures with our own activity. The red and green team did a mermaid shape but my group did a starfish shape and we decorate it with our own idea. This activity are so meaningful because to build a sand castle, we have to cooperate with our team members and we have to show our teamwork towards them. We were given about 15 minutes time to built it and it is really hard because the waves can destroy our sand castles. Finally we’ve got a useful idea that is to built a wall to avoid the waves. Finally all of us manage to build the sandcastle. After that activity, we’re ride a banana boat and each person cost rm 10. That is my new experience because i never ride a banana boat before and it is really interesting.
The rainbow aloha night were began after that and we begun with crossing the limbo rock so that we can enter the party. After we crossed the stick, they will give us the flowers. After that, the activity was continued with game called 'Crocodile &biawak'. This game is really testing the patience of us all and we should focus, because if the wrong call and show the wrong direction, we could die and are required to sit in the middle of the circle. After the game ends, we are required to gather in groups that have been set in the afternoon. We need to show that according to our own creativity.Finally, Diyana and I sing a song named My Heart by Irwansyah and AchaSeptriasa. My other team members accompanied the presentation and the most attractiveis AmiraEllinawith dance with our senior, Shafiq as we sing. After that, the other group continued the show. After the perfomance finished, the winner of Prom King and Prom Queen was announced. The winner of prom king and prom queen is Raff Rahim and Haneem Mustafa. The prizes was given by MrAfandi and MrTajul, the lecturer who following us.
After the ceremony, we were free to do anything we like. Actually Azmi, our tour coordinator had set up a camp fire for us but suddenly its raining. We were so dissapointed because that activity have been cancelled. After we having our supper, we sat at the hall and started a conversation with our friends until midnight. We were busy talking until we forgot about the time. We go back to our room around 1 o’clock in the morning
