If You’re A Debate Addict And The World Is In A Hideous Shape, Blame Your Friends

09/06/2010 § Leave a comment

I was at Petah 2010, a Malaysian record-breaking event – 111 hours of non-stop debating. It was five days of United Nations-like excess, during which debaters rented two halls at the Putra World Trade Centre, sending an endless stream of people for nasi lemak and fried mee hoon, played cards with politicians and coffee-slammed their bladders until they felt like walnuts.

This entry is about the throngs of people there, their addiction and the culture manifested within their genes

PETAH sudah berakhir , selepas 111 jam masa yang dihabiskan. Sejarah sudah pun kita genggam. Kepuasannya tidak mampu digambarkan dengan kata-kata. Hanya imej menceritakan segalanya.

Terima Kasih SEMUA!

Alhamdulillah, up till this moment PETAH has successfully achieved its first 50 hours. Throughout the event, unforgettable moments have been imprinted within three days of PETAH. We were glad to be having Dato’ Sri Ong Kee Teat, the current Transport Minister,Dato Shabery Chik, Minister of Youth and Sport,Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah, Deputy Minister of Higher Education, Dato’ Mukhriz Tun Mahathir ,Malaysian Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry and  Dato’ Razali Ibrahim the Deputy Minster of Youth and Sport.

PETAH was proud to be officiated by Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah by his three-bells-tick. Hence, the 1st hour of the debate started. Showing his termendous support, Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah himself, led the 2nd hour of the debate proposed that “Pemidato Sudut Pidato Perlu Diberikan Imuniti”. In line with the PETAH debate, “youthsays.com” has been set up at “YOUTH 10” carnival to promote the event itself and at the same time, inculcating the youth to express themselves.

At the booth, anyone was invited to stood-up and share their personal thoughts to the public. And, Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah was one of the speakers too. VVIP such as Dato’ Sri Ong Tee Kiat, Dato Shabery Chik and Dato’ Razali Ibrahim  also took some of their time to participate in the event.

Selagi mana PETAH berjalan, selagi itulah mozek-mozek ini akan terus berlaku. Semuanya merentas kehidupan dan meninggalkan nostalgia.

Mahu bersama menyusun mozek pengalaman?  Atau hanya memerhati daripada jauh?

Idealisme Zaman Muda, Rai-kan!

21/05/2010 § Leave a comment

Zaman muda selalu penuh dengan mimpi dan cita-cita. Degil dengan harapan dan kerja keras (mungkin juga, kemalasan dan putus asa). Walau apa pun yang memberikan makna kepada zaman muda anda, rai-kan. Sebelum anda bertemu dengan dunia realiti dan material, yang korup dan menyakitkan.

Setiap generasi punya gist sendiri, masing-masing hidup dalam dunia sosial yang dicipta dalam rangkuman zaman, masa dan tempat. Setiap satunya berbeza, setiap satunya unik tersendiri dan wajar di rai-kan.

Yang akan dikenang-kenang ialah manis/pahit perjuangan idea yang anda percayai
