Last Sunday, 13th December 2009, my brother Aliuddin and me participated in Kayakton Event. The purposed of the event was to collect donations for the victims of Indonesia’s Earthquake and Philippine’s storm
I heard the participation was limited to 30 peoples but I noticed it did not even reached 20 peoples. It look so many peoples are due to the organizer also acquired help from the Kayak association so that each kayak will be one participant (sitting in-front) and one pro kayaker (sitting at the back for maneuvering the kayak).
The number of kayaks is also limited thus some of us did not experience the full journey of the expedition. Actually the kayak can accommodate 3 peoples but they only allowed it after checkpoint 6. The problem again they don’t have enough paddles. So some of us just stay at the boat. Luckily this event was free – you only donate any amount of money, if not minta refund ku…….. rugi saja datang, inda ikut bekayuh.

In term of safety, it was EXCELLENT. We have help from the Police, Fire Brigade, Custom & Exercise Department, Forestry Department, Medical Team and etc. It was safety all the way. Good job

Overall, it was ‘bulih-lah experience’. For me, I was just relaxing on the boat. I have fun but not as I have would expected.
They should have provide more kayaks and more paddles enough for the limited number participants. bukannya ramai hantap.
Furthermore, I would rated this event just an average. The person in charge need to be self aware and be polite to others.
Keep on improving……………….
Notes: next week is another Bicycleton with the same purpose and objective. Hopefully it wouldn’t be as …….. as this one.
