assalamualaikum and haiiiii to everyone.
I just got an email this morning, and i bet other malaysian in Palmy got it as well.
It is an email about a debate competition that will be held here, in Palmy, and this is the general information:
Title: Pertandingan Bahas Ala- Parlimen Piala Kelab Umno NZ-Chair of Malay Studies 2009
Dates: 6th and 8th of July 2009.
Venue:Conference Room of Kingsgate Hotel, Palmerston North
Time: 6.00pm – 11.00pm
These two will be the topics for the upcoming debate competition,
1. PPSMI (Pengajaran Dan Pembelajaran Sains Dan Matematik dalam Bahasa Inggeris) wajar diteruskan.
Second and final round,
2. Malaysia : Aspirasi pemimpin masa kini dan inspirasi negara.
Ahaa… both are hot topics especially the first one. Well.. even me sometimes give my opinions to other blogs discussing these topics. And..all malaysian have been arguing about PPSMI since last few years, and i feel kind of tired about that. hmm it is all politics~ it is a never ending story issue~
but hey, it’s been such a long time saying kind of ‘good bye’ to the debate and elocution stuff. yep.. since i left high school.. but i think i am more into elocution rather that debate.. and i did much more well in elocution and won lots of prizes but lose quite badly in debate. hahaha not enough skill and experience, perhaps.
Well, in UMS, i just joined an organiser team for the national debate event, but not a debater. And Im very glad that i’ve been chosen as a representative speaker of all graduate students in UMS 2007, to give speech during the graduation ceremony. Actually, at first, i straightly rejected the request to give the speech, but then my dad got mad at me, haha. yeah i know, i should grab that golden opportunity. then i called the HEP staff and agreed to give speech on that special day of mine. My dad and I prepare the speech just a day before the graduation day. Thanks ayah for helping me preparing the speech! All i want is to make my mom and dad happy and proud of me. and more.. at least i have the same experience like my dad, he has been chosen to give speech in his graduation ceremony as well, in USM.
by da way.. back to the topic, well..this might be a good opportunity for me to try and feel back the debate atmosphere.. haahaa.. but the date seems not so good for me. i’m thinking to go somewhere else for this holiday and havent decide it yet. haha.. it seems like many people want me to go back home, malaysia.. (see the poll result) yeah i miss malaysia.. the food.. arhh.. durian, rambutan, maggis, apom balik, roti canai, murtabak.. and many2 more…wahahahah. hmm.. should i give a try? or maybe just become a viewer, but not a debater. hehehe…
will keep on updating… before going for a vacation trip, perhaps.
