of debates and birthdays

Yesterday marked another milestone in my life.

I became Chief Adjudicator (CA) for the second round of Kuching League hosted by Swinburne’s Debaters’ Club.


Being CA was kinda surreal to me, as I have only ever been adjudicator before, so to be CA was a big leap for me, and I’m very grateful to everyone that has helped me along the preparations, and line-ups and match-ups to ensure the debate went smoothly. :D

Therefore for this I would like to thank:

Mdm C – for having the faith in me

Evelyn – for helping me with some of the preliminary work

Kevin – for helping with adjudicator line-ups

Edina, Nancy, and friend – for helping with tabs and calculation of scores

Andrien and Teo Lynn – for being such awesome organisers

Ronnie – for always calling to chase me to get the line-ups done asap

All other SDC crew members – for being such good sports, and making it so much easier for me :D


Also, yesterday was my birthday, and already since last Wednesday, the wishes came rolling in, be it on facebook, or through sms’s. Some also more canggih can IM me on MSN :p

I want to say thank you to……

My family

Mom and Dad – thank you for putting up with me these past 23 years. I know I have given you many white hairs, but I promise you, it will be worth it! :p
