Well, I have a reason to love Pakan. Let me tell you people out there. Sometimes we won't appreciate the 'thing' infront of our eyes, not until we realised that something is missing in our life. Agree? Pakan provides me with a beautiful river, so what else can I say? I don't want to compare the rivers here with the other rivers in Sarawak but I'm sure the TSS and BOD level is in the good range. I need my Final Year Project apparatus and materials to test the water quality. P.monodon can't live here but the freshwater prawns can.
Clear water river...free from unwanted wastes, toxic and other harmful chemicals.
On the 22nd-23rd April 2005, the Science and Maths Board organized a camp for the students at the Julau River, 10 minutes walk from our school. Around 120 students and teachers participated.

2:30pm - students wait at the school canteen. After a short brief from the camp commander, they walked to the campsite with their bags, bantal busuk, baldi etc..etc... macam nak pindah rumah je. 3.30pm - I still in the school compound, waiting for our 'nurse' to give me the first aid box. 4.00pm - I drove to boy's house and parked my car there. Turun sungai tengok2 cikgu yang sibuk buat khemah. Manalah pelajar aku ni... 4.15pm - Aku cakap kat student aku, kalau tak nak tolong cikgu buat khemah, mereka boleh tumpang tidur dengan jiran sebelah (seberang sungai tu kubur)
The 'urusetia' and teacher busy preparing place to sleep.
5.00pm - Chung Mee and I asked the girl students to take their bath. 6.00pm - I went back to my 'apartment'. Doctor reminds me not to 'play' with the cold water so I have to take my bath at home. 7.00pm - The students prepared for their groups' gimic and logo. My group called themselves Biodiversity. Tengok gurunyalah.
