January 23rd, 2010 should have been our mercy but that seemed so hard to happen. There was held an annual challenge in State University of Surabaya. That is in the event of Batik convention. Several schools and students took part in it included my school.
There were some kinds of challenges in this event. They were debating of culture, the play, graphic design, etc. but our school preferred debating and play to the others 🙂
We had been practicing since the Friday, 2 days before the challenge began. We were calling for our own tutor whom are actually smart in English but it was exception for him to teach us how to debate in Indonesia language.
On Sunday we rode our motors to head to the destination. That was so early guys! When we came at the university, the circumstance was still so silent or perhaps we could see four to six buses bringing the properties for the plays would be used for the students of many schools.
At about 8 a.m. we ought to re-register and that was so b***hy as we got lots of snacks we never got in previously challenges 🙂
After we had re-registered, we went up to the third floor for the opening. The hall is so great and nice, I think with the bright lights that would be used for the play and this was the place where the play would take place 🙂
Unfortunately the sound system that must have been very nice to hear went so bad or even worse and worse when the hosts tried to make a speech! That’s f****ng bad 😦
After listening to ‘bad’ speech, the participants were asked to head to their own rooms according to the sort of challenge they took part.
My friends and I who preferred culture debate went down to the lowest floor while the friends took part in play stayed in the hall. We were all so nervous since we never joined any debating contest related to Indonesia language before. It was pretty hilarious I think 😀
The topic should have been supposed to be so clear but that was not!! How awkward debate contest it is! After asking for information to the holders, we got more confused and we thought it was so awkward! Crazy!!
My team was called then. We got the last turn!. We had a believe that we could win the contest but then, when the challenge was officially wrapped up, the hosts announced surprisingly that we WERE NOT the winner!! We thought we had made a GREAT effort but that seemed nothing when we got knowing about who the winners were. For the play itself, we did not win as well. That was really disappointing 😦
However, our school won the third place for the debate contest and thanks to our junior class for having won the trophy! 🙂 We are SO PROUD babe!! Yeah at least that can be the basic experience for us and hope tomorrow will be a better day 🙂
