EAYLF 2008 - Second Day
Next day was conference day.
All countries are to present a report on local youth activities and initiatives respectively. Each country must have only one delegate to do the presentation. Luckily i wasn't the one chosen to do the presentation for Brunei :P
To be honest, I was really disappointed with our presentation. Oh well, it doesn't matter. It's the opportunity to be in this grand forum that matters ;)
Those two are the Japanese dudes.
We had a short break in between presentations of 4 countries. It was during these breaks, we talked to everyone and get to know each other ;)
That guy with the beard above is from Singapore. His name is Hozefa Aziz Singapore Wala. No kidding!
From L to R : Me, Fathi (Brunei), Diyana (M'sia), Ha (M'sia), John (China) and Amira (M'sia)
They served this during breaktimes. It is some sort of a bean. I forgot what it's called, but it sure taste good! :D
I like the way they arranged the forks :P
After the presentations, we were separated into our respective groups. I'm with the environment group ;)
These are the people in my group:
From L to R: Blue (Thailand) and Ben (Cambodia)
Yes here name is Blue! The colour blue! I've heard of Brown, Black, White, and so on. But definitely not Blue :P
Aek and Nan from Thailand
Jae Wan from Korea
Tukta from LaosAmirah from Malaysia
Zhang Ying from China
Main Anh, the Vietnamese, whom we voted to be the secretary of this group
and lastly, our president, Khai, from Singapore
Basically, we discuss problems on how to tackle environmental issues, and making sure it is sustainable. I'll explain what we discussed in one of my next entries to come ;)
To conclude the day, we had one last meeting together, at the ballroom again.
We were told to practice singing and dancing to the ASEAN song, which is to be performed on the last day. Yes, there is an ASEAN song. If you guys want the song, just ask it from me through MSN ;) Although I'm not sure if what I'm doing is legal or not :P hahaha!
The song is actually pretty catchy though. Not sure who's the singer, but I have a feeling it is by Tata Young ;)
I'm happy to report that this dance, which was introduced by the Thai girls, was not accepted :P Otherwise I would be dancing like sissies xp
On second thought, the first dance doesnt't seem that bad at all.
Damn, those Chinese are always creative! Look at how successful the opening and closing ceremony of the recent Beijing Olympic! I'm not sure if it suits the song though. The song is energetic, and this dance seems so peaceful, so calm...so spiritual.In the end, we agreed to dance randomly xp
Ok, I'll stop here. It's not finished yet. I'll continue in my next entry ;)
