Last but not least, I would like to thank to all my family members!! <3<3
Without their love and support, (and also sponsorship) I would not been able to even start the journey to Hong Kong! Especially to my precious and beloved parents who had to wake up in wee hours with not enough sleep, send me all the way to the airport and even fetched me home. Days before, have been accompanying me to buy the things for the trip and staying up late till I finish packing my luggage. Saving money just for me to bring to HK and made sure I bring enough food stocks so that I will be able to survive in a foreign land. Although I didn’t manage to buy bags from HK for both my mom and sister, I am really glad that I have understanding family members. Even with 2 cheeky twins by his side, my brother still made the effort to reach early and wait for my return at the airport.
They have been backing me up throughout my entire life, supporting me and wanting to see me happy with my decisions in life. The love they showered me is incomparable to any other love that exists in this world!
I know it’s a week since we touch down to SG from Hong Kong, but the memories and emotions never fade away. I really enjoyed my virgin trip to HK, and wish to go there again. The times I had there with people from DCBR, MIG, and the others, was still memorable. Although I didn’t manage to chat with every single one, I was still happy that they went for the trip and managed to make new friends with the others. However, there are some people whom I really have to thank for making the trip memorable and bearable for me.
Firstly, I would like to thank all the facis that organised the trip and also followed us to babysit every single one of us (which I believe wasn’t an easy task). They have the perseverance and patience to make this trip almost perfect and wonderful no matter what and made sure we were well taken of too! Thank you to Ms Tio, Mr Jimmy, Ms Leanne and Mr Sim for making the SOT successful!!
Secondly, I would like to thank my dear Ah Ma, Sandra, for switching off my annoying alarm and waking me up every single day, and entertaining my behind-the-scenes unglam antics. You have been crazy with me singing random songs in the bus and late night sleepy talks and of course being there and taking care of me too! Sorry for locking you outside the hotel room one night as I fell asleep while ironing my clothes! Thank you for being my roommate and partner for the HK trip! I had an awesome overseas experience with you!
Thirdly, I would like to thank Syaizza and Liza for being my Malay buddies who would always invite me to their room to have meals together, but end up I didn’t coz I wake up late. And also went around Disneyland and Mongkok to shop and find halal food. You guys had to fast through lunch and dinner since we couldn’t find appropriate halal food and only eat around midnight. Thank you for being patient and tolerating me throughout the journey and I really had a great trip with you guys! We should really travel together again in the future!! :)
Fourthly, I would like to thank my groupmates, every single one of them. Thank you Wanxin, Renu, Liza, Syaizza, Liting, Ben, Yong Fang and Jun Yi for being very co-operative and initiative, never failing to report to me especially when it’s time for me to report strength. Although I decided to present solo for the Coca-cola debrief due to time constraint, I really owe a huge ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone for making me be able to present with the good and informative details on the mahjong paper. You guys have contributed a lot during our discussion despite it being messy; I really appreciate the time you sacrificed for the presentation and all the ideas that is being shared. I really enjoyed the meal times we had together and the funny moments we had as a group. Hope to see you guys around, especially those non-DCBR ones! It’s sad we didn’t have a group photo with both the ladies and gentlemen though!
Fifthly, thank you mummy for telling me to stand up for myself and not listen or follow anyone else. Thank you for listening to my rants and nonsense during the trip. Though we didn’t have the mother-daughter time, I still am glad that you went to the trip and am in my group to lighten up our moods! You never fail to make us smile just being the way you are!
Sixthly, thank you Wahwah for trusting me and sharing that* with me and also listening to my past confession about *. I hope you are not too overly affected by it though! And what ever happened to our mentor group?! (*you-know-i-know)
Seventhly, thank you to Benjamin Loh for being our trusty photographer who took beyond amazing photos! I really love the fireworks photos in Disneyland and was so amazed with your skills. I kept telling people that all we could capture were the smokes, and then we have you! You have also brought laughter and happiness to us all with your antics!
Eighthly, I would like to thank our tour guides and the driver (though I don’t know how they are going to see this message). I really miss May! Not because of her rather unique and interesting accent, but also her patience to guide us, introduce to use the places, although sometimes we didn’t manage to hear her coz we were quite loud. And Mr Driver who has been very skilful and patient driving us around and waiting for everyone before he could drive off! And to the other Singaporean tour guide (I’m so sorry I forgot her name!), who have been arranging the accommodation and flight tickets and everything else for the whole huge group of students!
Lastly, I really miss everything in HK, especially the weather! And I miss everyone getting together and have fun! I hope we can meet up again or go for more overseas trips together again! It was a very memorable experience I had for 5 days in Hong Kong. Thank you to every single one of you!
