It's 2011!!!!!!!

hello readers....
and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

I'm here to wish you all will have a very cheerful and good year in 2011...
I'm also wishing myself to be strong enough to face the challenges in this year...

well, today I'm here to share with you guys on what i did on last 28/12-30/12 2010...
on these days, I've attended a counseling course named "Mapping Youth Future" a.k.a.
"唤醒青少年并规划他们的未来" under Yongiway organized by 林氏公会...

only Lilin knew that I've attended this course because she and her mum suggested me to join..

in this 3 days, I've been busy for whole day and felt a large-scaled tiredness....
the reason is the course took 13 hours per day, which is from 8.00am to 9.00pm...

on the first day(28/12/2010), I've been taught on how to be adaptable to environment, fast and creative...
well, i think I'm quite good in performing these skills...nothing to be worry about..
we(11 members) have worked together as a family of Horse(according to Chinese Horoscope).....
it was a tough day for me to become a good leader because some of my member wasn't put 100% input during the activity...they doesn't open enough to work, discuss even talk...
i can't blame that because everyone needs their own time to adapt to the new and unfamiliar environment..

then, we have sang Happy Birthday song using our family's voices, so horse's voice was used by us to sing the song...the event is funny, because I'm thinking on how to "talk" as a horse...

then we were also danced according to the animal's special characteristic..
everything doesn't proceed as i planned and the performance was kind of 4/10 marks..

not even that,we have created our own cake according to our family's animal..
and together,we have created a cake of our mentor's face..
here, we played with the cake and team worked together in this task...quite a happy ending..XD

then, we have released our anger by scramble the yoga mat...
we(male member) have scrambled 2 towels until the towels torn up...

after that, we have learnt how to train our vocal and volume...
we are also did a meditation to release our anger...
lastly, we have learnt how to sing a song with different expressions..
and also practiced to sing "You Raise Me Up" by Westlife..

second day(29/12/2010), we still continued with Dr.Yong's lecture and group discussions..
then continued our song practicing activity..
after that, we have learnt how to release stress and relax our mind and body, by "Laughing and Vomit Hardly"
well, this is a part where i can't perform well,because you need to laugh hardly, then vomit...
i can laugh, but i can't vomit in front of many people, into a plastic bag with some transparency...

the next thing we did is another meditation to express the sadness part of us...
then, we are also exposed another way to release our anger by "Hit the Mattress"
it was a fun activity because you would be relaxed after you doing this...
and my both hands were injured by the mattress..

right after having lunch, we started to create our own 舞狮...
but in this case, we have create according to our family's animal...
and for my team, we have to create 舞马...
it was a difficult task for us because it is difficult to create the head of a horse..
besides, we are also need to create our own material to create melody and rhythm..
on 7.30pm, the "Animal Dance"competition was started...
on the competition, our group have won "The Best Drum Award"...
for the event, i have learnt some skills on 舞狮...
and i'm hoping that i can learn more in future...

on the third day(30/12/2010),which is the last day, we have a lots of lectures to be attend..
then, we have a "Imagine & Express" which we have to face to face on one of our member(one on one)..
with the help of hand-to-hand and songs, we are able to express everything in the deepest of our heart..
honestly,all of us were cried...

later, again, we all hold our hand,
and together,
in a comfortable environment and songs,
shares and expresses our feelings and stories..
then, Dr. Yong told us about his past stories...

after that, we are exposed another way to express our anger,
other than "Hit The Mattress",called "Get Up If You Can"..
in this activity, a person will lay on a mattress,
then about 6-7 people will hold that person so he/she cant get up...
thus, the person will used his/her energies to fight so he/she can get up..
it was a tiring and sore throat event for me, because it requires a lot of energies...

after the activity, we all gathered together for the last discussion...
and it will be our last practice for singing...
it was a sad part for me,because we all will going to separate and continues our own live in future..
after that, on 7.30pm, our graduation event was started...
we all have sang  "Negaraku " and "You Raise Me Up" together...
it was very touching event there...

after all the coarse, I really learnt a lot of things..no matter from my team, even from Dr.Yong..
Sixth sense, thinking thought's killer, don't think, do only ONE time of revision...
even some of his thoughts are the same with mine, which that thoughts were not acceptable by most of the people...and i feel proud of that...XD


as a conclusion,
3 days were the most tiring days for me, because it took about 12 hours there...
3 days were the most successful days for me, because most of the activity i can fully participate,
and be a good leader...
3 days were the most failure days for me, because i can't fully socialize with others,
as I'm quite an "old man"  at there and I'm from different school than others...
and i didn't really make a friend too, as i didn't take their Facebook account and handphone number...
even my own group, i don't have their Facebook account or handphone number and even i didn't take picture with them....and that's make me so down...
but luckily, I'm accidentally found some of them through Facebook....and that's make me feel lucky..
maybe it's a new year gift for me...

Anyways, Happy New Year to my family, friends and people around me...XD
