Bonus

Imah's first time to UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

Assalamualaikum :)

So I know, I havent been updating my blog. Probably because not many of my friends actually do this...and I don't really have stories to tell. To be honest, once upon a time, I was a very active blogger...but somehow...I dont know..things have changed?

So anyways, referring to the title, YES! I went to US! Well I didnt really like travel every states there. It wasn't actually a trip. We had this um competition. You should google about it. WORLD SCHOLAR'S CUP. It is an amazing program! It has three stages , well actually just two but the third round is like a BONUS. First, there is the REGIONAL ROUND. So they have a few rounds for every country maybe. So for Malaysia, they have KL Round and Penang Round.

Obviously we went to KL Round. And to be very honest, the KL Round was MY VERY FIRST EXPERIENCE IN WORLD SCHOLAR'S CUP. And Alhamdulillah sesangat that we won quite a lot for the round.




And for that, we got an invitation to the GLOBAL ROUND in Singapore! It was such a blast! We learnt really a lot there.  And I made some friends too!

So this is my team, we stayed in the same room.

Our first day for the WSC Opening Ceremony at the Stars Theater!

Our college sent two teams, so this is the second team, Alfareeza and Suhada!

This was the Scavenge Hunt! We were lining up for dinner at the Wave House, Sentosa Island. We were separated teams. It was crazyyy!!

Me and my teammates in the crowd of participants!

MARA JUNIOR SCIENCE COLLEGE BATU PAHAT TEAMS AND OUR CHAPERON MISS FAIRUS <3 td="">
Our happy faces at Nanyang Girls' School after we won all three debates with teams from around the world!

The scholar's ball was at a nightclub called the Zouk! Crazy gila kan? Dont worry, we just went to see how the people were and teman Agillesh hahaha Seriously it gave me a headache to absorb the heavy music . Nope, there were minuman keras HAHA surprisingly there were also nerds at the club. well, it is a nerds' ball!

everybody was supposed to get an alpacca but it ran out so me and saria and iman only got the small ones :(
