What a life! This is my 1st experience in APDSA and also getting chance to be one of LOC as a director of publication and documentation. It feels like, once u’ve joined APDSA, u’ll be addicted with that! Absolutely right! Hahahahaha. Anyhow, i’ll share some of my memorable experiences here.
Opening ceremony was the 1st impression that gave me amazement! I was one of the organizers! Just like a dream come true, LOC 2008 was truly great just like the spectacular opening ceremony (hahahahaha!). Well, the important part was meeting my group. I was in group 10! There were 12 people including me (Anindita Zahratur Rasyida). They were Yovita (Indonesia), Icha (Indonesia), Jin (Korea), Elaine (Taiwan), Flower (Taiwan), Fishbone (Taiwan), Todd (Taiwan), Rai (Malaysia), Kityan (Malaysia), Farah (Malaysia), and Hiro (Japan). Well, I’ll give them my comments.
Yovita = nice group leader and always try to treat the group well
Icha = photographer, the communicative one!
Jin = beautiful! Attractive and looks like princess in Korean movie! Hahahahaha.
Elaine = nice person and cute! I like the way she was.
Flower = funny and interesting, and also the next professional photographer! Hahahahaha. I can’t forget about “chin je sye, chin je be!” hahahahahaha (well, i write down that sentences according to Indonesian pronunciation and spelling) never put off till tomorrow, if u can do it now! hahahaha
Fishbone = well, he’s nice but little bit calm, anyway i thought that he was the responsible one because at that time i collected Taiwanese photos from him by email, so actually he did good job to collect them. But hey,, I’ve already said the deadline about collecting photos but why did you still send the photos to me after the deadline date?? Hahahahahahah!
Todd = smiling general and you know, he didn’t like spicy very much! Hahahahahaha! But two thumbs up for doing our challenge to eat that chilly (cabe)! Good job Todd!
Rai = she’s sweet and we are melayu! Hahahahah
Farah = well, u really like photos, right?
Kit yan = i think u are a model, right? Hahahahahha. She’s beautiful and being able to speak 3 languages! Malay, china, and English well!
Hiro = moshi-moshi. Hiro-chan is so cute! She reminds me always with Japanese comic, i mean the character. She’s a little bit calm. Nice to meet you! (Anyway, how to eat the food in the black pack one?)
Day two, we’ve got city tour and city game but unfortunately i couldn’t join group because i have to help organize that part. Dizzy! Tiring! Exhausting! I missed the moments with my group, but well, not really because I still could go around the mall with yovita, icha, atya, hiro, kityan, jin, and todd. And we were challenging Todd to eat chilly! Hahahahahaaaa. And off course talking about Korean movies with Park Jin! (jin, sorry for your name tag, that’s my responsible actually although that’s my friend job because I’m the director. We’re so sorry.)
Day 3! I loved this day! Actually i was the announcer for cultural night together with stanley. The APAL give praise for over all the show. We were the LOC serving the best and that show became the best cultural night since 3 years a go (according to my friends and the seniors). Big thanks also delivered to the APDSA participants for presenting their best performance. I really loved Taiwan’s performance! But Indonesia was better lah,, hahahahahahaha!
Day 4! That was the most memorable day according to me in this APDSA. I did really enjoy group. I was talking much with Hiro and elaine along the trip to ciputra waterpark. We were talking about comics, movie, and etc! Finally i knew the difference between kun, chan, and san. Hahahahaha! I like japan! I like keiichi Tojo! (lho???? Hahahahhahahahahaha! I’ve got the photo! He looked like the real samurai!) and next, i enjoyed the outbound in water park. I could see that flower, todd, and fishbone were the real fighter! Hahahahahahhahah! And off course so much fun for playing water with Jin and Billy! Oh, they were so romantic! Just like watching Korean movie! Hahahahahahahahahahaha! But anyway, we are, the LOC, so sorry about JAMAS and Taiju tragedy. God bless u! And at night we moved to G-walk. I and yovita treated them well and showed them our Indonesian food, specially Surabaya. I really enjoyed their expression when tasting our food for the 1st time! I took so many photos here!
Day 5! Oh no! It’s hard to say goodbye! Turn back the time! Hahahahahahaha. Well, that was the last gathering time in closing ceremony. Well, wanna cry but what for?? Hahahahahhaha! I really appreciated with the souvenirs that they were giving to me. I gave my silver pins to groups and plus billy, the kind-hearted one. My mom only bought 12 and she spent almost 500.000 IDR for that souvenirs. Thanks mom! That will be memorable for us! Actually, i’ve already bought 12 surabaya stickers as souvenir but because adieb didn’t buy the souvenirs yet so i gave them to adieb 11 and i kept 1 because i liked the desgin but finally i gave it to Fiorina and she deserved for that, i hope u like it fiorina. Next, i and adieb took so many photos together with other participants. U knows what??? Mari asked BRIAN anak asem for having picture together! Both of us! Me and brian! Hahahahahaha. Well, brian name is unique and we often discussed it but mari thought that i adored him! Hahahahahaha. But , that’s okey lah… handsome enough. Hahahahaha! Ohw ya, to every people that i informed about my lost a box of my name card, hufff, i found it! Hikzzz, so oblivion! I left that box in my suitcase! Hahahahahahaha. Sorry, but i’ll add your messengers and perhaps friendster or facebook. Well, big thanks also for FU and ann for their kindness. Thanks fu for your mom’s cake. I took photo 1st before eating! Hahahahahahaha.
Oh ya, for the other participants that i can not mention one by one, thank u so much! Nice to meet u all!
