That's really interesting. Different views from different person. Kinda like a small debate+discussion. 16092010(002) 16092010(004) It is like a round table meeting. the judges are sitting on the round stage in the middle. 16092010(003) so many people rite! 16092010(001) My friends kept telling me ehh this is the YB. ehh that guy wrote for The Star! hahaha lotsa VIP and VVIP that day. Sorry I can't remember all. I was impressed with those people who dare to voice out their opinion in front of everyone. I think it needs lotsa courage. And I'm really happy that we Malaysian actually so united and concerned about our lovely motherland. I always thought all those political/education or whatever issues are not for young people like me. But this event proved me I was so wrong! I should really get myself into all these. I actually CAN influence policy making and help shape the future of our beloved Malaysia. Where I decide what is racial unity and integration. The time is now.
