miss me?

It's been...
2 weeks?
Since my last post?

One week plus.
 Oh, that's not too bad.

But anyway, usually I do update a few times on weekends, so it's considered as quite a while since I posted.
Totally MY FAULT.
Yes, I know.
I was away at KL last weekend, but it was TOTALLY worth it!

(Refer to previous posts)

This time, to compete!
Uh huh, you heard me right, I was in a NATIONAL LEVEL DEBATE COMPETITION!
How cool is that?!

*Crickets chirp*

Okay, okay, so it may not be that cool to everyone, but it RAWKED to me, anyhow.

Anyways, to cut a really long story short, we won 2 rounds/lost 2 rounds = No Octofinals for D-ASH.
But still, met a lot of really cool people and I swear, you'd seriously be amazed at the level of friendships people can find when put together in desperate situations!

We met this Perlis gang whose sole guy was Deric (Check out his blog for a play-by-play account of our days at Peninsula Hotel/HELP University College, KL) and Houey's roommate.
The rest of the team (3 girls) stayed in the room next to me, Alia and another-Malay-girl-from-another-school-which-I-can't-remember-at-all.
(Sowwee. XP)

We had the luck to be on the same side (Opposition) for the first round, so naturally, we exchanged some notes.
(When I say exchange notes, I mean Chat-Our-Lips-Off, that type of notes. XP)

Aaaaaanyway, those 3 days saw us bonding with the four of them and getting to know many new people.
Won't ever forget those nights we spent labouring over our speeches, sprawled over the beds.

D-ASH and MACS - Uh huh, we both got names.

The full alliance.

*Roots around for more pictures*

Oooookays, the rest of the pics are still with Houey in his camera.

Never mind lah.

It was a truly GREAT experience for us, especially since we've never debated outside of Perak before.
Just seeing all those people there (90+ schools) made me think, "Wow, we were chosen to come and take part in this,".
Let me tell you, it felt awesome to be part of the 'elites'.

Anyway it's probably the last time I'll be involved in debating as a civilised sport.
(I love that - Civilised Sport)
I'll never stop debating, of course, it's in my blood.
But from now on, it's gonna be kept to teachers, my parents and, occasionally, friends.
Probs no more competitions for me.
So this was really enjoyable.

And I'll treasure it for a lifetime.
Stuff like this, ya don't forget.

The prizes.
(Too bad we didn't have a chance to snag any of those!)
