Conquering Kerachut Beach on Midsem Break..

Last Friday (21st August 2009), during the midsemester break, the Catholic Undergraduate Society was hosting an outing to Kerachut Beach. The project director was Juslin Mali. This outing consisted of hiking, picnic and barbecue. The fee was only RM10 perperson, including the transportation and the food. That was a good bargain most of us could ask for.

Our bus started off as early as 8 in the morning. We arrived around 9 am at the Penang National Park main gate. We were full of energy, in our quest to conquer the Kerachut beach.
*full of spirit moment*

Everybody looked fresh and energetic. Waiting for the boat owner to take some of the food and stuff.

Before starting the hike. Posing is a must. Thanks to Melody for taking this photo. ;)

The beautiful scenery captured by Melody. It would be a waste if this picture was not included in this post.

Smiley faces to show though in a tired state. It was an achievement to be able to smile after hiking for quite long, under the rain.

The picture of the hiking process. We didn't really feel the length of the journey's duration since some of us got entertained by the singing of some of the participants (you know who you guys are, hehe).

The scenery of the Kerachut beach. We finally arrived!! (Extremely happy because we were hungry that time.)

Resting at the barbecue venue at Kerachut Beach. Thank God we had a roof to protect us from the sun and the rain.

Emmerline, Marcela and Clevellen busy grilling the chicken wings for us. Thank you guys!! ;)

Happy face after eating. :) Emmerline posing while Stephanie and Melody was busy (eating)..

After we finished doing our activities there (eating, playing, taking pictures, and exploring, hehe) we ride on a boat to get back to the Penang National Park main gate.

It was a nice experience as the boat driver kept explaining to us the significance of the natural heritage while on the way to our destination. Thanks to the nice weather too, the boat ride was a fun experience.

See the cheerful faces of the participants. =)

When we arrived back at the Penang National Park main gate, we grabbed our chances to take more pictures.

This is a picture on the stairs of Penang National Park office.
Managed to smile though we were tired. Anything for getting a good photo, people!

Thanks to Marcela for taking this photo.

The bus picked us up around 4.30 pm and as you can guess, the bus were full of tired sleeping beauties. :)

It was an unforgettable outing for us.

Last but not least, peace out CUS outing!!
