The commemorative bread for breakfast I started my day with yesterday morning (Oct 29) and as early as 6.30am because we had to do a set up for our (me and my classmates) event at Chinahouse at The Old Courthouse. Got up at 3.30am; unable to sleep as I felt there was something wrong - thus proving my workaholic issues. YES TOO HARD WORKING ALSO GOT WRONG. After doing some stuff, tried to go back to sleep but couldn't. So yes, I woke up at 3.30am on a very important day that needs ample of energy to move. Fortunately, due to work rush, I didn't feel tired.
So yes, all the hard work and late afternoons put down on this one day. Not to forget extra scoldings, middle of the night feeling distress and days after days of discussion me and my classmates had to go through. So basically, this event is part of our module - we had to organise an event with all the crap loads we've learnt throughout our days in college as a Diploma in Mass Communication students.
I had very hectic, insomnia nights; staying up late cracking my brains just for this event (not me only of course) and this is the conclusion - I WILL NEVER GO FOR EVENT MANAGEMENT LINE OF JOB, because I couldn't stand the pressure of getting people to work a perfect event, let alone organise it nicely. I couldn't stand thinking there are still things needed to be done, and worse is, financial issues. NOPE. I'm just gonna go on with life by either being a reporter/journalist or public relation officer. Even broadcasting is tough for me as I am not creative. Marketing I can consider. (PR, journalism, broadcasting, marketing are part of my course's modules)
Let's go back to the event - This is my first time organising an event and playing such an important role at that - Secretary. (HAHA) This event was the vision of my classmate, Lin whom is closer to the design kids rather than mass comm and she felt that there is a gap between the student artist and appreciation. Hence, she organised this art exhibition to show that their work are not merely assignment tools but it could actually be something valuable. It's also a stepping stone for the young artist to create a reputation in the art world.
This event includes an officiating ceremony where the head of the design faculty together with Dr Emmanuel Osakue (read article by us here) cut the ribbon together. The painting we used to officiate is by Dr Emmanuel himself. The event also features watercolour art demonstration, henna painting, name calligraphy and band performances.

Throughout the day, we've received different kinds of visitors - some just passer bys. One of them was my friend and she was one of the people that met Lin's objective and goals which is to create an appreciation towards young artist. My friend and I had a conversation like this after I told her that artists spent ample of time creating an art, after showing her our watercolour artist booth.
Her : omg now I know why my sister spends every night painting. I thought why does she have to spend so much time just for you know painting.. hahaha now I see why.
One of the other things that I've observed among art enthusiasts was that they have a knack for art (yes) and they stare at one painting for too long. Like for me, it's just a painting. For them, it's more than that; example I saw one girl looking at the bottom of the painting for quite sometime and I realised it's just that but she realises something else. I whispered to my friend, "you see she look at the painting longer than us". My friend said "yes. I think she's thinking how to create the brush technique".
Definitely wrong people to organised an art exhibition but okay, we nailed it with lots of help from different people. But at least I know the objective were achieved. Even to me, as this exhibition was a definite eye opener for me towards artists/painters/art enthusiasts.
Nonetheless, I did enjoy my time despite the journey to success being a rough one... What's next? my last presentation and my finals then it's road to graduation; I meant to say weeks to graduation day. I can't believe three years has passed since I first started college.
I'm not sure if I am going to further my studies or start my career. I'm still young and I'm still considering different journeys. On the other hand, I feel sad that I am leaving college as I'm sure working life will be much further stress than college, and plus I can't have my afternoon nap as I like when I start working. Most importantly, there will be no lecturers constantly nagging at us when we're doing the wrong things or there will be no lecturers to help us correct the wrong. To add on, they can't fire me if I make mistakes.
Lastly, cheers to those who visited/supported me yesterday (including my parents/husband/son) ;
That crazy girl from college - Laura Jessica.
The closest friend of mine from college - Lin
Who is also the project manager of this event.
Another crazy girl from college, Pei Yen. She's so damn funny I cannot sometimes. I still remember clearly in my mind during Community Service class presentation where she tells the whole class her experience at the old folks home we were assigned to. The whole class, including the teacher laughed. And ladies and gentlemen, that's probably how I got an A for Community Service because of her funny antics.
Oh ya, here's Lin getting interviewed by an online news portal - TV Sarawak.
My sister came even though she had a hard time looking for parking and it was raining heavily. KISS KISS
With Carmen who is Lin close friend. Also a design student. She also damn funny HAHAHAHA we always verbally bully Lin together.
I just want to put it out there that the photos with friends are placed in no particular order, just the order of them when I received through whatsapp/wechat and I'm just so lazy to arrange it.
