With the knowledge and guidance provided by the ARC advisor, Bro. Asri, we made it through all the obstacles and trials encountered during the exploration for this time. He has help us a lot and make us more touched when he also sponsored two pieces of T-shirt each for the Rafting Team for this time.

Various alternatives are used to ensure that the raft can speed at the Pahang River. For example, we used 12-meter PVC tube and placed under each raft. It is clear that our raft fast and easy to rip apart a little current. In addition, the size of the raft is a little bit small and narrow compared to previous years. The theme for this year is 1Malaysia so we decorate with colored fabrics in blue, red, yellow and white. We ensure that the decorations do not interfere with the comfort of the paddler and not weigh the raft. As usual, the IIUM Kuantan team show with the theme of simplicity.hehe.. However, one of the IIUM Kuantan Team managed to get fifth place on the race day which is on the third day of exploration. Congratulations.

However, some problems should be overcome to ensure that such exploration is progressing well in the future. Among them, we should give more attention to budget for materials to make a paddle. This year, we use the billboard as a paddle, but it appears that the material is not able to hold against the Pahang River. Paddle we did not last long until the end of the exploration and the overall destruction of six, including a broken paddle and drown. Perhaps, maybe plastic bottle is the best alternative in the future. Besides, we also face the problem of transportation. Hopefully, this problem should not recur.
