Remembering Extemp and the SRK

The ISKL Southeast Asian Forensics this year was a truly memorable event. They no longer call it the Forensics; it is now known as the SEA Tournament, but I think we will always know it as the Forensics.

I had Syed Muhsin take this picture because I wanted to have the VI's three Extemporaneous (Extemp) Speaking medallists onstage, with the 'audience' in the background. I wanted to remember the place we all three stood when we delivered our winning speeches.

Jeremiah took the Silver this year to bring the VI's Extemp adventure full-circle; in 2006, Jon took the Bronze while I secured the Gold.

It's really quite mind-blowing, considering very few dared venture into the rather difficult world of Extemp over the years. God has been gracious, and I am also very thankful to the other Extempers who have journeyed with us, especially Alex Yap, Kishan, Fang Hai and Wan Dzarif.

We couldn't have done it without your constant encouragement and perseverance.

One year of life in the University of Malaya (UM) has passed. I've immensely enjoyed college life (in 3rd College a.k.a. Tuanku Kurshiah College), though it would seem that I don't really spend that much time in college (compared to my fellow collegemates).

I've especially fond memories of working in the Photography Unit of the Sidang Redaksi Kurshiah (SRK; Kurshiah Editorial Board), doing everything from capturing various fa├žades of college to shooting formal mug shots of the college staff.
