Aku Suka..Aku Rela...

Salam...

Last Saturday (040709) and Tuesday (070709) my friends and I voluntereed to become the stewards for the Big Arts Day Festival..yeay.. aku memang tak pernah bercita-cita nak jadi pramugara pon..huhu..pasal steward here was not a flight attendance or cabin crew.. it was person who helped to organise a public event.. and mind the word..volunteer.. ye kami melakukannye dengan suka relanya hati kami ini..

ok..what was it all about?? what was the Big Arts Day?? The Big Arts Day is Hari Besar Seni-Seni..wahahaha...It's actually a festival organized by the Barefoot (Marjon) to celebrate the diversity of arts.. wootzz..

so for the first day (Saturday) we had the Big Carnival Parade in Plymouth City Centre.. It was school children or any art group playing musical instrument and marching around the city. So we 'as a steward' have to guide the parade.. control the children and the traffics and so on..

the mascots, Mr Dragon and Mr Skeleton..budak2 Marjon mmg berbakat..tu dalam costume tu budak Marjon laa tuh..huhu..thanks to Fayadh & Adam who managed to scared the children..

The Stewards..yer aku yg merah tu..yg pakai baju silau2 tak kalis peluru tu perkerja binaan kat Plymouth..pandai cakap BM sume tuh..huhu...

For the second day.. we had the main event of the festival..The Big Arts Day.. and it was held in Plymouth Pavilion..no more parade around the city again..just loads of performance from schools and organisations in a big grand hall..besides, there were also some workshops and exhibitions.. and yes it's all have to do with arts..and our job for today was... steward lagi laa.. this time we had more responsibility.. we were assigned for several participants and we must managed them. make sure they have arrived, show them their sit, make sure their ready for their performance, make sure everything run smoothly and so other steward's jobs..

Sam, Me & Faye..free Tshirt but must be returned back..pinjam je laa plak..

and honestly, although the performances were mostly from the primary school pupils or even pre-school children, they performed like pros..OMG..5forty2 pon tak perform sehebat diorg..ekekeke..sorry guys..korg kene berlatih joget2, nari2 skali kot..and we had choirs, dances, artistic movements which were too artistic for me and many more..they were amazing..

and for those 2 days, I didn't bring my camera because we are not allowed to take pictures of the children..something to do with children protection act here..so just the official photographers are allowed.. but we can bring our camera and take our own pictures..and of course if I bring my camera it would be too obvious and I was very sure if I bring it, I can't stop myself from taking pictures of the event..so better not..so for all the pictures in this entry, the credit goes to Sam and Hafiz (manager) punyer kamera..

i love the event very much..especially because it involved school children..so as a future primary school teacher who will face the challenging children of today..this is a good practice on how to handle them..even though most of the time I feel like kicking or stamping them..negehehehe..but it was not that hard..they were good, just me being a little evil..heh..so I personally hope that we can do more activities like this.. it encourages students to go infront and show their talents.. it enhances their interpersonal skill and they will not be timid and anti-social.. this is another problem with our children..ok i'm not writing my assignment here..enough for now..hehe..

Cheers...

yes we are the stewards

p/s: hopefully I can join volunteering work again..best woo..tp lagi best kalo berbayar kot..huhu...
