It was school holidays, Peter, Rahmad and I decided to go on a camping trip. We left
early in the morning and reached our campsite in Hutan Lipur, Pahang around noon. When
we arrived, we followed a narrow trail leading into the jungle. We wanted to look for a good
spot to set up camp. Finally, we pitched our tent near a waterfall.
After cooking our first meal, Peter suggested that we explored the jungle. So we
armed ourselves with several bottles of mineral water, a small penknife and a torchlight. We
were amazed at the various flora and fauna found. However, after a few hours, we realized
that we had lost our way. We had also finished the last few drops of our mineral water. We
were now feeling exhausted. Fortunately, we came upon a cave. We decided to put up a night
there as it was getting dark.
The next morning, we were eager to find our way back. So we set out to determine the
direction of the rising sun and went westward. After walking for about two hours, we came to
a river. We trudged along the river bank, following the direction of the river. By then, we
were overcome with exhaustion.
Suddenly, we saw a native catching fish. We shouted and waved frantically at him to
get his attention. The native saw us and signaled to his friends. They came to help us and led
the way to their village. We were given some food and drinks, and after that we rested.
The following morning, the village headman took us to the police station to make a
report. We could not wait to head home. We were tired but relieved our ordeal in the jungle
was over.

This incident thought us a valuable lesson. We learnt that we need to take a few safety
measures when camping. First, we need to inform the nearest police station or the park ranger
about our camping to avoid any untoward incident. Second, it is important for us to bring
sufficient food and camping equipment such as torchlights, compass, map and pocket knife.
This will help us in any emergency.
