It’s all about celebrating and to commemorate the sportsmanship! Hehee.. Kathleen Nandong a.k.a Kat invited me to witness the opening ceremony of the 14th ASEAN University Games at Stadium Bukit Jalil today (Saturday, 13th December 2008). Since Kat was an active athlete back in USM, she wanna be there to support her fellow athlete friends of USM Athletic Club. Sampai sana, the crowd was thronging immensely but of course Kat was enjoying herself with ‘eye-candies’ scenery, eh? *wink*! Hahaha.. Pau and a few of Kat’s athlete friends reserved seats for us; so we were practically were taking seats that were actually initially DESIGNATED for USM Athletes only! LOL.
It was nice to experience the atmosphere of LIVE event; menjerit2x cheering for the ASEAN teams and did the numerous ‘Mexican Waves’..ehhe. It was also can be called as a star studded event as Mawi opened the performance act with his qasidah. After that Zahid and Noraniza Idris took over and of course, the ‘Aishwarya Rai ‘ of the night was Shafinaz. Dressed up in a sparkling gown which looks like a hybrid of Motown days and Indian costume, she belted out her famous soprano tone to the highest note on a star-platform *erk?* Above all, I enjoyed the event and meeting old athlete acquaintances like Pau and Nazri and knowing new acquiantances like Julie and Linda really make my day. Thanks gal! =)
Aksi-aksi budak-budak USM di seats yg designated untuk mereka sahaja (sebenarnya la!hahah)
