Assalamualaikum & good evening,
I had mentioned in my earlier post about CoFesta Foreign Student Ambassador Organization. After participating in the organization & went to some of their event, finally it was the time for presentation. The presentation was like the final event of the year ; we present our idea on how to improve the CoFesta to make it better in the future.
So, on 5th of December 2012 (Wednesday), it was time for the presentation. The presentation was divided into 2 sections which were group & solo presentation. There were only 3 groups & 3 persons presented in each category. The presentation took place at the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) of Japan. It was the place that really shocked me. At first, i thought that we gonna present it just to the company staff that is responsible for the CoFesta. But then, we were told that the minister had a great interest to hear our opinion and that's when it involved. I was going to perform in front of the minister! Lol....it was really like 'there's a butterfly in my stomach' but it's not only just a butterfly, the feeling was like there's a dragonfly too.
コ・フェスタ留学生アンバサダーについて僕の以前のポストで書いていた。この組織を参加して、 いろいろなイベントもできて、いよいよ最後の任務が来た。それは発表のことだ！今年の最後の 任務は；将来コ・フェスタが良くするためにどんな変化ができるのかというような課題を自分の意見で発表する。
Trophy for the winner
Oh yeah, forgot to tell about the dress i was wearing. Actually, i wore the 'Baju Melayu' all the way from my home to the presentation's place being held. Yeah, there were some eyes that looking at me in a weird way but....who cares?! This is how i want to show my culture to others especially since i'm a foreigner here. ;)
Anyway, it's all thanks to Ruiz for giving me the idea of wearing Baju Melayu while presenting at the minister.
Solo presentation presenter seems to get ready...especially sakinah. (笑)
So, here it goes...the picture of the presentation progress. Picture shown as order.
The First group : CoFesta Rising consists of Ruiz, Vinc & Tiffy
The 2nd group : TokyoCon also can be called as girls team...Come on girls~
The last group : CoFesta Arc consists of Eason, me & Edgar
Next, personal presentation session :

The nervous part was coming; the announcement of the winner. All of a sudden, it was 'CoFesta Arc' name's being called and crowned as the CoFesta Presentation 2012 winner. It was really a shocked & happy news at the same time. In spite of us (CoFesta Arc) winning the presentation, but personally from me, all of us are a winner! Everyone threw a splendid & magnificient idea to improving CoFesta. Everyone, well done! Good job guys
結果を発表したとき、すごく緊張した。急に、僕達のグループの名前（コ・フェスタアック）を優秀者 として呼ばれた。優秀者になるなんて、僕は本当に思わなかった。僕はこの発表会に参加する 目的は経験を重ねたいだけです。発表は終わった後、皆の発表内容をよく理解すると、皆がすごくいいアイディアが出来ました。僕にとって、個人的の意見で皆は優秀者です。皆も素晴らしかった！
The cheering face of us~
Kika was a little excited....or should be called drunk face~ （笑）
CoFesta Foreign Student Ambassador; that's what it's being called. I'm really grateful that i had the chance to participate & involved actively (still i can't join all of the events due to other things that need to be done) in this society/organization. I'm so grateful that i know you guys; we work together, we eat together, we perform together....eventhough for only such a short period of time, i really value the moments we had together as a CoFesta. Not to forget to our supervisor that worked really hard for us ; Yonemoto, Ooi & Kinpara. Without you guys, we are nothing.
Thank you guys for being part of my life. コ・フェスタ最高！
*Damn, i'm in emotional state...now i missed you guys. (笑)
We had our own party right after the event on that day
"Ku lihat layu dalam Melayu
Takkan Melayu hilang di dunia
Ya....tapi apa guna tak hilang di dunia
Kalau kewujudan tidak dirasa
Petah berbahasa kudrat tak berjasa
Orang berbudi kita hanya tahu merasa
Selalu lari bila dirapat
Selalu malu bila soalan diaju
Selalu segan memberi pendapat"
-dipetik daripada lirik lagu layu nyanyian Malique-
I know it's nothing, but at least i have tried my best with what i have to raise my nation's name. I, a Malaysian has presented at the Japan METI. Plus, with my Baju Melayu. I'm proud of it. Alhamdulillah~
Hope i'll get a better chance to do more deeds throughout my life.
Thank you for reading.
