Mighty Minds Grand Final 2014 (Part 3)

Last day of our trip. We ate breakfast early in the morning and went back to pack our belongings. Upon deciding to spend some quality time before heading home, we had enjoyed a movie entitled "How to train your dragon 2" and I've retrieved a free line sundae ice-cream nearby the cinema!



I remembered I've watched HTTYD 1 and it was an awesome movie. That time I were anticipated to watch HTTYD2 ^.^ While strolling around the mall, we happened to pass by Osim with a huge Lee minho standee. Damn.. that was the day he landed on Kuala Lumpur, but we had no chance to meet and greet him :( 


Alright. We're at mid valley while he's at KL Convention Center.. We could only watch KLCC afar from our room's window.  *disappointed-fangirl*

After watching the movie, we stormed back to the hotel lobby to gather for the last time. My teacher-in-charge went to call for taxis. We're going to KLIA2.

 

I can tell each and everyone of us was feeling blue by observing, anyway we've managed to squeeze a forceful smile to bid farewell. 

In the taxi, I guess we're all sleepy and slept through the whole journey to KLIA2. o_o  Once we've reached there, Gan took a groupfie of us outside the airport before entering. 


*Lol* the sunshades =.= Frankly the high exposure has spoilt the quality of this picture :(

Anyway, we went there freaking early like it was 4 o'clock. We had nothing to do. So, we went to stroll around the huge airport. And I retrieved a free sundae cone (again) from Line. Tbh I have no idea why I have so many coupons like there's 4 of it;;;


In the lif ^.^ On the way to check-in. Everyone was squeezed inside this limited space :P


Image credited by Xin Min! We were waiting patiently for our flight which was half more hours to go.


Here's a picture of us, were all ready to face the reality.. Each of us had our own routine lives back .. not to mention, our vital examinations were coming! 

We've had our pain and gains during this trip. We all had fun.  Last but not least, wish you guys all the best in your upcoming examinations! Team 4. :) 

Thank you for reading. Do comment if you want :P

Mighty minds grand final 2014 (part 2)

This was the day I've awaited. The 3 of us couldn't get a good night's sleep. I remembered Angeline and I felt light-headed and nausea in the lif. We ate buffet at citicafe. The nervousness made me loss appetite. I'll not fancy any perishables even if there's the most appealing dishes are served. Despite feeling dizzy and nauseous, we're still being able to take pictures..







With a loss of appetite, I could only intake a spoonful of food and drink a small glass of milk :(

Then all of us gathered outside the hall before proceeding into it. I was damn nervous! We sat on our seats. The emcee gave us a talk before all of the participants followed the carrier cluelessly. We had reached at an unfamiliar shop. It was very early that we have to wait for the shop to open. The whole mall was pitch black with a flicker of lights hanging on the ceiling. While waiting, some of the teams were interviewed by a group of reporters with some broadcasters.

Once it is opened, everyone rushed in like busy little bees, racing against time to get materials for building their models. While, we were trying our best to get the items on our to-buy-list. We need to buy the materials below RM100 and each of us was given 45 minutes to shop. Without a tinge of doubt, we selected items as fast as we could but in a more precise way.

Luckily for us, we've managed to select our materials and queue up in the nick of time. The total price was below RM95. It was a relieve.

After that, we rushed outside and we turned out to be the last lower secondary team to be there, queuing up at the back. We ran back to the hall and perspires slightly. It was definitely exhausting once we reached there. Upon grabbing the pencils and drinking mineral bottles provided, we calmly sat back to our seat.

And the competition started.

All of us were busying to build our model within 1 hour. Gladly we've done building our Chill'n in almost 50 minutes.. Here's a sneak peek of our model: (captured by my teacher)



So we've done!



After this, all of us went out to prepare for the next challenge- Oral presentation.. We were busy memorizing our parts.



I don't understand why I am so freaking nervous. Even if I have already memorized my parts, but still, nervousness crept out and I've forgotten my part! The worst of all... when it's my turn, I was literally stuttering and it turned out to be incomplete because of insufficient time.. :(







After presenting in front of the judges, we went to be seated while waiting to be interviewed..



Well ahaha you know what am I going to say during our interview... "I am regretted not to be able to give my best performace"

Then, we went eating at Citicafe while preparing for the next challenge.. Buzzer quiz!
I had no appetite, as usual. I ate porridge again (and a bowl of ice cream) hahaha =.=

Before the competition, we were given motivation speech by honorable guests. Then, it's time for our last challenge.

Frankly, we only knew answers of 4 questions. The other teams did very well in this section. While we're hesitated to press the buzzer because we wouldn't want to risk..

So we ended up getting a nought *hahaha*



As it was the first time we've ever made to the final, we've learned many lessons from it.

And the winners!



They were awesome ! It's not easy to be a champion.. congratulations :)

One last group picture!

\

Gan brought the flag and I have no idea why LOL

At night, we decided to watch a  movie and we've selected a comedy genre of it. :) The movie ends at 12.30am. We felt tired and went back to sleep.

Okay, a sum of day 2: About 10 hours of competition, we've learned many things from it. Although we didn't win, but we won friendship and teamwork.

Stay tune for day 3! (last part)




Mighty minds grand final 2014 (part 1)

Howdy! After surviving restless week in preparation of examination, finally I am free! So here ya go, as I promised to blog about my mighty minds experience. (Note: there's quite a lot of pictures here! ) Even though we didn't take the cake, but we have gained experience.


Early in the morning, we've boarded the airplane to reach there. The weather was quite good fortunately. :D


Two different teams from the same school! 


A selfie at the airport before heading to mid valley! 


On the way to mid valley by riding on a cab. Sorry guys, I couldn't find a better picture of us *sheepish smile*


Once we've arrived at the Cititel Hotel, all of us went to register for our very own cards. FYI, the hotel typist spelled my name wrongly. I have no idea when did my surname changed into 'Kim' and I found that absurd. *Annyeonghaesaeyo*


View of my card! 

After getting our cards, we went to fill up our grumbling stomach as our room was temporarily unavailable by that moment. It was already 12 o'clock. We searched for eateries and ended up eating porridge =.=  

Xin min received a call from the hotel and it was already available. So we went back to grab our belongings and went to our room. 




A picture of our room. It's so comfy.

After that, we went to stumble in the mall. Before shopping, we entered Aeon Big to carry out some surveys in preparation for the next day. Then we went back to our room to rest and prepare for dinner.



One last selfie before we went to the hotel lobby.



Meet my teammates! Why r u guys so tall T_T



So everyone was there. We have took some pictures with other teams as well!



The emcee was gorgeous though :)



My teacher in charge- Pn. Dalilah was all excited and took a picture of our feet *hahaha*
After that, all of us went inside.

At first we spotted an available table so the 6 of us went to sit there.



Just then the emcee saw teammates sitting together and she remarked:" All of you should sit at the different tables from your teammates or I'll deduct your team's marks!" then the whole hall turned into a mess. Everyone was leaving their own seats and rushing off to sit at a different table.

I saw an available seat beside Gan, then I've decided to take the seat. It's okay since we're from different teams :DD *lols* Anyway, I turned up to be the only girl at the table but it's fine as long as I'm sitting with the person I knew or it'll be awkward for an all-boys table which was strangers to me and I'm the only girl =.=

So the whole eating process I kept talking with Gan hahaha. It was awkward.. Anyway majority of them was in form 3 so I guess "PT3" was the only topic I've actually communicated with them :O

While eating, we've played the Multiple-choice-quiz (MCQ)  and my table ranked the #6 with a score of 100. Angeline's table get the highest mark so they won extra goodies.

All of us wished good luck to each of our table mates for tomorrow's competition before heading back to our rooms.

My teammates and I were extremely tired but we couldn't sleep. Butterflies were fluttering in my stomach.

Alright, that's Day 1. Should continue the 2nd day in my next post.
