Assalamualaikum. On the previous entry I wrote that I want to break the news to my
Brooksian friends and teachers is that I got to represent in the Inter-Varsity Debate Competition in Brunei Darussalam from 12th September 2005 till 19th September 2005. I'll be missing school for one whole week. My feelings are really strange now. It is a concoction of different kind of feelings... sad, happy, excited, scared and etc. I am sad because some people are so ignorant and happy cause I am going Br
unei Darussalam. I am excited simply because I was chosen to represent Singapore based on my maiden performance debating. I really have to thank Kak Guy Ghazali for this. Thank you so much! Scared? Of course I have to be scared because I am going to debate with debaters from J2 and University undergraduates. Gosh! I am the youngest from Singapore. There are still couple of things that I need to learn.
Got the motion for the debate today and will be going for a photoshoot session tomorrow at MediaCorp Bestway Building. The worst thing is that we will not be told if we are in the opposition or te proposition team until we reach Brunei. Heard that last year, when the Bruneians debaters came Singapore, they stayed at Royal On Scotts Hotel. Not bad yeah! To me, the ultimate aim in a debate is not to win but to take the learning points from it.
Tomorrow, it will be Teacher's Day's eve and we are celebrating it in school. It will be till 11.30 a.m or so and the "best" thing is that Northbrooks also end at 11.30 a.m. How is it possible that I can go back to my dear secondary school? Haishh! Will be bringing some curry puffs for the class party and we(05S71) actually gave the teachers who taught us an invitation card each. So sweet of 05S71 to do that.
On a serious note, today itself, I am flabbergasted by the news by people dying. 4 news of the daparture of people whom I know from this ephemeral world. Hold on, we'll all meet again one day! It is all God's will... Al-Fatihah.
