My Convocation Day..

Hey you all,

I’m finally here.. MY CONVOCATION DAY post.. haha.. After few days of blogging on the days leading up to this special event.. That morning (2am) I was feeling both excited and anxious for the most memorable moment in my life to come.. I checked my robe, suit, tie and everything and made sure everything was perfectly in order.. haha.. Forced myself to sleep and woke up around 630.. Got ready, then Charles and I were of to pocket D, the place we’re suppose to gather before we walk in the hall..

I got my number (still remember I’m no 498) and got in line with everyone else.. I even got some help from June to pin my scarf to my robe.. By 830, we were walking towards the hall in our respective lines.. The moment was getting closer and closer now.. Even so, we still had time to take pictures.. hehe..

Then we made our way in the hall, I was turning left and right to find where my parents were sitting but I couldn't find them until the end.. haha.. All the lecturers, honored guess and lastly our chancellor, Tun Dr. Mahathir walked in and took their seats.. The event went on smoothly and I was beginning to feel restless awaiting for my turn.. Kinda long to wait when your no is 498..

I know my specs looks a bit weird here..

Finally I walk down and lined up beside the stage.. Someone was there to help us in some last minute checking so that we would look perfect on stage.. Ling Hui, Elvina and I was nervous a bit (I got no idea why) and was practicing a bit on receiving the scroll and what to say.. haha..

Next I walked up and stood beside Dr. Kamil (Head Dept of ICT) on the stage and gave him a piece of paper with my name on it.. Dr. Kamil announced “John Emmanuel Edmund” and I walk toward Tun controlling macho and all.. haha.. Accepted the scroll and said “thank you Tun”.. Gila ar, just imagine the whole hall was watching you.. I’m yet to get those pictures of me on stage.. Yeah!! It’s done.. Woohoo!! I’m shouting to my self as I walk down the stage..

Walked back to my seat, watched the remaining friends take their scroll.. Then the prize giving of The Chancellor’s Award (Bronze, Silver and Gold) followed by a speech from the Chancellor Gold Award recipient.. Then some ceremonial stuff and lastly singing of our national anthem, NegaraKu.. Walk out the hall, meet my parents and they congratulated, gave me a card and some gifts.. I was so happy happy gila.. What happen next are all explained by the pictures below.. hehe..
