Mother Tongue Languages Symposium 2014

Spent past weeks and long days preparing for a mother tongue symposium (while juggling other projects, eek). The day came - spent twelve hours of my Saturday at a convention centre. It wasn't what I expected. Thousands came and participated! It was truly exhausting, yet worthwhile. I believe I attended to more non-Malay language speakers than Malay language speakers.
The most memorable moment was when an official informed us that the guest of honour (minister of state for education) would arrive in TWO minutes, and our representative was not there. It's overwhelming when you meet two MPs in a month, really.

Next weekend - another food drive.

I'm bloody knackered.

Le booth.
