Last weekend, for three days I was stuck in a lecture hall at KTSN because of this:
Nowhere to run, but with plenty of food to eat.
Carolyn, MeiChieng and YanXia
Back row (L-R): Me, YanXia, KweeSze, Janice
Front row (L-R): Carolyn I, WeiWei, MeiChieng, TzeIm and Carolyn II
Of course, I was not the only one doing all the work. Everyone helped to chipped in. We were all so tired that I am sure, if given a chance, all of us would have fall asleep there and then. But there were hardly any time for breaks in between. Everyone spend every minute trying to finish up all the work.
There was only one thing I was pretty much upset with and that is the fact that for some of our group members who live in KTSN, they managed to find time to go bathe and rest whilst the rest of us work 24/7 without any bath or rest. I feel that is unfair. Just because you live in KT does not mean you have special privileges than the rest of us. Also I detest the fact that some of them did work very slowly. The problem when you do work in such a slow pace is that when someone else gives you something to do, you will give the excuse, "Oh, but I have not finish my work yet." The question is, "When will you ever finish it?"
I dunno, I just find it odd that eventhough we have so many members, some of us still did so much work, more than others. Oh, and I don't like it when people say, "Oh, but that is so-and-so's department's work, not mine." Please-lah. My job was only to do the speech and yet I contributed to other departments as well. When time is running short, why still be so calculative?
The banner that I helped to contribute. I drew the orange letters without any measurements, which explain why there were not enough space on the banner - letterings were too big!
Our group, Khidmas did a sketch with our group leader, our pengarah program, Lee Wei as the main character.
This is the Biomed 3rd year's group which was so funny because they did a kungfu-esque performance but they did not have any music so they just sang, "jeng-jeng-jeeeng..." (try and imagine the wong fei hung's song but with jeng as the lyrics).
I took this pic to show my housemate MeiChen what her buddy did. Her buddy is the one on the extreme right.
Pharmacy 2nd-years were divided into two groups. And my roommate, BengBeng was in the 2nd group. Here she is, playing one-half of the walking banner. We laughed because when the show was over, both of them walked off the stage, still holding the banner so it looks like the banner walked away on its four legs.
The group that was awarded the best performance was the Medic first-years. Surprise, no? Looks like medic students were not so skematic after all. But they def deserved it because they were so damn funny ok? They were so not afraid to make up spontaneous jokes along the way.
I still remember an excerpt from one of their unscripted dialogues:
Doctor: Tengok, di sinilah mereka dapat check blood pressure mereka. Do you
know apa itu blood pressure?
POA (Penghulu Org Asli): No
Doctor: Oh, you can speak English?
And that concludes my post on Khidmat Masyarakat.
On 22/10/08, followed Mom to her dentist and then pick up my mp3 player at Panasonic before having lunch at MidValley. Wanted to go home as soon as possible since still in my study week (guilt)...
