Assalamualaikum. When I got home from NIE yesterday at 7.30p.m, I quickly have my dinner and left home at 8.00p.m and headed to Taman Warisan at Bugis. It was already 9.15p.m when I reached there. By then, the place was super gloomy. Scary. Worst, the front entry door was already locked and I have to walk through another dark lane to get to another entry. I went there for a Story Writing Competition. The competition was stretch over 11 hours and 24 hours. There were 3 sections. 1st being 11 hours from 9 a.m to 8 p.m and the 2nd one from 10p.m to 9a.m the next morning.
The 3rd one is 24 hours long from 9 a.m. We were given a single word theme which happens to be a very chim word Fatamorgana. Luckily, I roughly know the meaning but just to be sure, I asked Hilwa, Ismail and Saddiq to check for me
but only Hilwa got the meaning. Thank you Hilwa! Every 2 hours, the contestants will be given a key word and we need to use all the word creatively in order to get 20% of the total marks.
Guess how many words do we have to write? 5000 words! Goodness gracious. Making it worst, I've to write because I do not own a laptop and we are supposed to count the number of words we wrote. After completing a page, I count and lastly, I'd sum up
all. I completed the story at 9.15 am. Got a new experience. I’ll tell you guys what my story is about soon ya.
Oh ya, 4PM needs usher for the Iklas TAA Suria show. So, I volunteered and guess what? Siti Nurhaliza was one of the artist there
besides Taufik Batisah from Singapore Idol, Khairul from Anugerah, Kelvin from Superstar and Shabir from Vasantham Star. Yes, I saw Siti Nurhaliza live for the 2nd time and the best part was that I got to see the rehearsals, seeing the artist without makeup and wax or gel up on their hair. Ewww… Some of them look horrendous! Siti Nurhaliza do look good though without makeup. I thought that she looked younger without makeup. When the show started, the ushers were asked to be seated at the empty seats and gosh, I got to sit at the $100 seats. I was sitting on the 3rd row. Siti Nurhaliza was so B.E.A.Utiful! Took some pictures and here there are… Enjoy!
