I got a 'buzz' in my yahoo messenger. It was from my vietnamese friend asking me why didn't I yet to bed?
I don't know how do I explain to him about sahur. So, I told him I didn't feel like sleeping yet.
Next morning, I was woken up by one of the city hall people through phone. It was 615am. They expect me to be at the ground floor at 630am. How la T___T.
I remember vaguely, with kid's voice I asked them,"Can I go by myself?It's too early." And I heard a small laugh at the end of the line. He told me, I wouldn't be able to find my reserved seat if I go there alone. I was imagining the ceremony is like..a..bunch of people standing in a circle with one person giving speech at the center, which later a flock of doves are released. I forgot about the whole thing is one of the world`s famous ceremony.
|Where we were told to wait. I have photos of myself here...but nah...my face was too awful untuk tatapan strangers:P bahahaha|
|Our seating:) If I were to come alone, I don`t think I would ever grab a seat, let alone a decent one like these. However, because of this comfortable seating, I dozed off half of the time:/|
|Guests from abroad were the targets of the medias on the day. Besides that, I was also held by the school children. Few of them presented me with their artwork :)|
|This is how far we were from the famous Prime Minister Kan.|
Well, after the ceremony ended, I plan to run away coz I really cannot tahan anymore the heat around me. But I was stuck in human traffic and media attention;P haha..so, I was sort of forced to be one of the international delegates for the special conference. I was again 'unlucky', picked up by the authorities to give speech T_T...I was so not good at it...T__T
Well, I must say I am proud of myself for another extraordinary experience here in Hiroshima;) I don't think many people are given such an opportunity to represent Malaysia or been given such an opportunity to express yourself.
Later, I'll share with all of you the 'apogee' of the whole event, for what this event is the most famous for:) I swear...it was one of the most incredible, jaw dropping view one could ever witnessed:)
These 2 weeks. Every minute of it is like a marathon to me:/
