I’ll be going for all 3 events :) Helping out in the first event, taking a look at the second and participating in the third.

Yes. I am going up to stage, facing a sea of Japanese Senior High School girls and guys and reading my speech in their native language whilst the Japanese students will do their in English.

I joined in without much thinking. Don’t ask me why, seriously. Sensei wants us to prepare our draft in both English and Japanese next thursday. I’ll probably talk on “My Future/Desire” or something along those lines. It’s the first for me to give a speech, and I hope I don’t screw up haha.

Do come and support me people! I think it’s free admission. XD


Oh, and for those who were wondering why I had to wear such formal clothes today. My group had to do our presentation and we’d decided to wear the ‘office attire’ (meaning long sleeve shirts, suits and all) and present.

^ The five of us. I’m on the outmost right.

  1. Decked out… nice. Giving a speech to the masses eh, just “try” to be as natural as possible and good luck =)
