having dinner with another fifty thousand people

the other day when i got the medical leave for the slight fever that had been on and off for about a week, i still went to the dinner in Klebang..the big event with our PM. didn't attend the only class that day and still attended the dinner with thousands of ppl, lecturer would kill me if she knows :p my friends said she even asked for me. i didn't know u'd realize i'm not there, miss R.
with all the commotion and after waiting for the staff to arrange the buses in order of each block, we got on one and started fanning ourselves until the bus went on the road. imagine the school bus with no air-cond and not to mention the heat from the sun these days. thank God it's not in the afternoon, or i'd melt down to a puddle already :p
when we were nearing the place, we saw a few busloads of National service's kids. i was thinking they sure invited the whole of the nation for that particular evening, cause i didn't realize at first just how big the place is. then when we were finally there, we saw all sorts of buses taking all sorts of people from all over. there were KYM, MMU, UTeM among them..i dunno much about the others cause there was no written proof anywhere. like us, they went there on school buses and other rented buses..mcm la uitm xde bas kn.
the thing that i hated about that place was it just used the beach for the setup..imagine having to walk on a stretch of beach sands and before that on rocks. the tables were on sand was unbelievably irritating. and there was no designation for the tables, just numbers,..i bet some people were lost in the sea of tables and people that night.
the entertainment for the night was okay..there were Marsha, Anuar Zain singing 'kain pelikat', Fiq, Bob AF, the Kenny person who resembles Sudirman, Ali Mamak and a few others.
the food was horrible though..tasteless asam pedas, diluted gravy of pisang masak lemak, and salty fried chicken among them. to be expected when it's given free :p
most of the ppl were waiting until the end of the event for the lucky draw, wanna see if they're lucky enuff to get the Perodua Viva. i think most of the prizes were won by guys.
and the last part of all, waiting to go back. we had to wait for around half an hour just to drive past the 'dataran'. i dunno how the other bus from my block can get back to the campus in just half an hour, but we were stuck in the long line of buses and cars and only arrived back at 3 in the morning. it was very tiring.
