~CKNOWLEDGEMENTS

The completion of this Baden Powell Award Requirements wouldn't have been possible without the support from my fellow brothers and sisters in Scouting. Especially my fellow Scouts, Ventures, Rovers and Scouters from Cuon Scout Group, in particular our Rover Scout Leader: Ms Catherine Tan, our Assistant Group Scout Leader: Mr. Gavin Pah, and our Group Scout Leader: Mr. Abdul Latiff. Without their constant guidance, I would not have the opportunity to develop myself to the fullest.

I must also thank my fellow Rovers from the 3'd National Rover Council, 3'd NRC Chairman: Mr. Oliver Lim, NRC Lead Adviser: Mr Chow Hock Lin, my District Commissioner (Tampines): Mr. Yang Chen, former Assistant Chief Commissioner (Northeast Area): Mr. Tan Tek Tin, and current Assistant Chief Commissioner (East Area): Mr Ho Chee Heng, for their unwavering support and assistance in my Rovering journey.

Finally, all my generous benefactors deserve full credit for their valuable contributions to my development as a young adult, throughout my journey. Any shortcomings are entirely my own responsibility.

Date completed: 28 February 2009

Achieve competency in one core scouting skill area from the list provided.

Prior to pursuing the Rover Progress Scheme, I have acquired basic orienteering skills during my days as a Scout and Venture Scout. Since becoming a Rover Scout, I have attended the Unit Leader Training Woodbadge Course, and organized several exploration tests for my Scout Group.

Unit Leader Training Woodbadge Course (ULTWBC) -

  • 14 October to 23 November 2008.

Part of the ULTWBC required us to embark on an expedition starting after lunch till late in the evening (more than 6 hours). During this time, we had to locate several checkpoints denoted by a set of map grid reference (MGR) and subsequently write a hike report based on our observations and recordings.

Venture Scout Standard Exploration Test (VSSET)-

  • 13 to 14 April 2007

  • 25 to 26 January 2008

  • 26 to 27 July 2008

  • 27 to 28 February 2009

As the chief examiner for the VSSET, 1 had to plan and organize overnight exploration tests with distances not less than 20 kilometers. I had to use navigating skills such as map reading and orientating based on compass bearing to set the test routes' MGR.

Baden-Powell Award

In addition, being a Venture Scout Leader required me to impart relevant orienteering skills to my Venture Scouts. As such, I had to go the extra mile to further master the core competency of orienteering in order to be adequately trained to teach my Venture Scouts.

Since then, one of my Venture Scouts had completed his Activity Instructorship Course (AIC) in Orienteering Instructor, organized by the National Programme Council (NPC).

Baden-Powell Award In addition, being a Venture Scout Leader required me to impart relevant orienteering skills

1 am a Taoist, and for this observation I have chosen the Goddess of Mercy Temple at Waterloo Street. It is more famously known as the Kwan 1m Thong Temple, or also simply known as Kwan 1m Temple. The temple is dedicated to Kwan lm, the Chinese Goddess of Mercy, and is very popular among the local devotees.

The temple was built in 1884, and has since been designated as a national heritage site. The temple would be busiest during the first and fifteenth day of the Chinese New Year, when large numbers of devotees would offer prayers for an auspicious start in the New Year.

Baden-Powell Award

An interesting point to note is that there is no incense burning inside the temple hall, as it can be seen in the picture on the left. The urn for offering incense is actually placed outside the temple hall to prevent the soot from staining the ceiling.

Day 2 was spent on exploring much of Singapore's central catchment area and the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. We ended the exploration in MacRitchie Reservoir Park around 10pm, where we camp for the night.

The final lap was spent on trekking from MacRitchie to Pasir Ris mangrove, in between we explored much of the northeastern part of Singapore, and we reached Pasir Ris Mangrove, which was our end point.

Prior to the expedition, we had made preparations such as organizing our own skills sessions in outdoor cooking, basha building, survival, first aid and navigation to ensure that we were adequately prepared.

This journey was done in parallel to my companion's NY AA silver.

International Coastal Cleanup, Singapore -

22 September 2007

As the event's Chairperson, I had proposed the inaugural International Coastal Cleanup Singapore, to my District, when I first read about it in early 2007. I quickly wrote in to the Singapore's coordinator for ICCS - Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research (RMBR), as ICC is an annual affair organized by the US based Ocean Conservancy. Due to the overwhelming application, RMBR could not slot us in for the originally scheduled 15 September 2007, which was the date for ICC worldwide. So RMBR allocated to us the following Saturday, and the response from my District was overwhelming.

The 6 months of rigorous planning and preparation saw 70 participants from 5 schools, a total of 1293 debris, weighing 42.5kg was collected.

Footdrillinstructorship Course (AIC)- 28 March to 8 August 2009

Of the several scouting skills I have instructed as a Venture Scout Leader, I have decided to pick the footdrill instructorship course 2009 (AIC), organized by the NPC. The footdrill instructorship course 2009 is interesting, because it is one of the few collaborations between The Singapore Scout Association and external agencies, which in this case is the Singapore Police Force, held at the Old Police Academy.

Baden-Powell Award

Three of my Venture Scouts participated in this AIC, the Ventures had to undergo a series of activities and on-the-job training before taking their assessment. To fulfill the course requirements, the Ventures participated in 4 training sessions, before being allocated 6 to 10 Scouts each for their 6 instructorship sessions.

The three Ventures having been a Scout, and with the Scout Troop for the last four years were familiar with the basic footdrill and commands. Therefore besides footdrill, I had focused more on the communication aspects when facilitating the Ventures, such as verbal and written communication.

Korea DMZ Peace Trek -

9 to 16 August 2007

Activity hours:

Approximately 108 hours

Activity area:

South Korea

Together with nine fellow Singapore Rovers, we undertook an adventurous journey trekking on the South Korea's Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). The 13 th Korea DMZ Peace Trek was organized by the South Korean's Scout Association to spread the message of reunification of the whole Korean peninsula.

The Korean Demilitarized Zone is a strip of land running across the Korean Peninsula

that serves as a buffer zone between North and South Korea. The DMZ cuts the Korean Peninsula roughly in half, crossing the 38th parallel on an angle, with the west end of the

DMZ lying south of the parallel and the east end lying north of it. It is

155 miles (248

km) long and approximately 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, and is the most heavily armed border in the world.

The Korean War broke out on June 25, 1950, and ended with a cease-fife on July 27, 1953. 16 countries dispatched combat troops to help the South and 5 others sent medical supplies. Ever since, Korea has been divided into South and North. The DMZ divided the Korean peninsula in half, a 2km area on either side of the border (MDL) where North and South Korea both cease military activities and offensive activities. It is also an invaluable ecosystem preservation area for rare plants and animal species.

This journey was done in parallel to my NY AA gold adventurous journey.

Korean War Battlefields DMZ

The Korean War broke out on June 25, 1950, and ended with a cease-fire on July 27, 1953. 16 countries dispatched combat troops to help the South and 5 others sent medical supplies. Ever since, Korea has been divided into South and North. The DMZ divided the Korean peninsula in half, a 2km area on either side of the border (MDL) where North and South Korea both cease military activities and offensive activities. It is also an invaluable ecosystem preservation area for rare plants and animal species.

Objectives of the 13 th DMZ Peace Trek

Enhance the will towards the Korea's reunification and peace

  • - Contribute to the world peace and unity

  • - Share friendship through the trekking

Reflections of Day 1

We arrived at the Incheon International Airport - South Korea's international airport, at about 7am (Korea's time). The Korean Scouts were very kind to pick us up from the airport; many of them had to travel for 3 hours to the airport. At the airport, we also met Scouts from Thailand and Hong Kong who were also here to participate in this event.

We moved on to the assembly area at Nam-sung elementary school located in Chung-ju, which is a 3 hour ride from the airport. At Nam-sung elementary school, here we were divided into our different groups. I was paired with Chris in group 5, and our group had about 18 other Korean Scouts.

The Korean Scouts were very shy, probably because they were afraid to communicate in English. We were told that they had learned English as their second language, but in South Korea they very proud of their Korean heritage, so many times they prefer to communicate in Korean, thus they had little chance of communicating in English.

The Koreans were very hospitable; they took extra efforts to help us get used to the culture in Korea. They were very interested to know about Singapore, and so we spent much of the time together understanding more about each other's culture.

Imjingak

Established in 1972 for those who had to flee their hometowns in North Korea during the Korean War, Imjingak is located northwest of Seoul. Some 400 relics and pictures on North Korea's military force, politics, society and overall lifestyle are exhibited here. On display outside are 12 different Korean War tank and combat planes. Here is the Bridge of Freedom, the point of interruption of the Gyeong-euiseon Railroad, and a platform for Koreans whose ancestors are buried in the north, to make ceremonial bows.

Typhoon Observatory

Typhoon (Taepung) Observatory was established on 3 Dec. 1991 by the

"Invincible Typhoon Force".

It

is

located

at

the

top,

Suribong, of Mt. Bikki,

Hoengsan-ri, Jung-myeon, where it is about 65km from Seoul and about 140km from Pyongyang.

Initially,

it was

build

between South Limited Line and North Limited Line,

2km

from the Military Demarcated Line.

But the North Koreans put iron impalement

around the true line in 1968, and South Koreans set up iron impalement partially

in 1978.

Thus Typhoon Observatory was established 800m from the truce line and

1,600m from

a guard

post

of North

Korea.

Therefore,

it became

the

closet

observatory on the truce line of 155 miles.

Reflections of Day 2

We woke

up at 5.30am,

and

to

my surprise,

the sun

seems to

rise earlier in

Korea.

We had our breakfast, strike camp and moved to imjingak for the start of

our trek.

The Koreans have a disciplined culture. They will keep to their schedules strictly and will not accept any kinds of delay, and thus we were able to arrive on schedule at every destination.

At each destination, there were South Korean soldiers to explain what each observation performs. They had Korean explanations followed by English, but subsequently for some of the destinations, we had no soldiers who knew English to explain to us.

Some of the Korean Scouts had to stepped in as English translators, but unfortunately, many of them being students does not have a good command of English to fully translate the explanations.

I spoke to the Korean Scout's International Commissioner, who was overseeing this event. She was apologetic about it, not just the Singapore contingent was affected, but the Hong Kong and Thailand Scouts were also affected, and had spoke to here about this translation issue.

She mentioned that her English speaking staff were posted to the World Scout Jamboree 2007 2 weeks ago, and could not make it in time for this event. She felt bad about it, and promised to get some English brochures describing about the places for us.
