Before I start, this seminar was take place on the 19th July 2012..
I was instructed to attend the Seminar of Wasatiyyah & 1Malaysia concept held at Pusat Islam Johor.
The ''Wasatiyyah and 1Malaysia'' Seminar will tour 14 states to explain the two concepts to the people. Two prominent speakers have been lined-up for the seminar organised by the Prime Minister''s Department. Minister in the Prime Minister''s Department, Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharum will speak on ''Wasatiyyah'' or moderation concept while Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister''s Department, Datuk Ahmad Maslan on the 1Malaysia concept.
Kedah was the first state to organise the seminar and Johor is the last.
and so, here they are.
and so, here they are.
Their dress code for the day is Batik, so I wore a baju Kebaya to attend.
Camwhore-ing in the car
I know ppl will sure think that I am Malay..
I have this issue since I was like.. a baby?!!!
The postman happened to saw my mum playing with me lying inside the cradle when I was a baby..
Postman: eh, you tolong jaga anak Melayu ke?
(you do childcare for Malay kid?)
Mummy: tak, ni anak saya.
(no, this is my daughter.)
Postman: Oh, you punya husband Melayu ke?
(oh, you husband is a Malay?)
Mummy: taklah, husband I Chinese.
(No, my husband is a Chinese.)
Postman: oo.. anak angkat..
(I see, its you adopted child..)
Mummy: ni anak saya, husband Chinese, anak ni pun Chinese!
(This is my daughter, my husband is a Chinese, so is my daughter!)
*saying it with an angry face! >_<
What's wrong with that postman!!!! lol
Every time when my mum talk about this, I cant stop laughing.. because her face looks so funny and cute..
okay, i know im a lil off topic, so Okay, back to the topic.
So the seminar begins, here comes the first speaker of the day.
The Malay lady on my right, has make herself comfortable, adjust herself into the right position. When the seminar starts, she cover herself with her shawl and SLEEP! lol
I tired hard to hang on (honestly, wanna just close my eyes and sleep!)
I somehow manage to keep my eyes wide open until the one third of the session, thanks to the second speaker who is funny. but towards the end of his speech, I think someone accidentally press the fast forward button because he suddenly speaks so fast that I can't get him and I slowly fall asleep. lol
but it wasn't too bad as the seminar is ending.
Look at my tired face, poor Audrey.
Finally, here comes the Menteri Besar of Johor to held the closing ceremony.
I am so excited, because I can finally go back!!
Although its tiring, but at least I now know more about wasatiyyah and 1Malaysia concept.
By the way, this is the first time I heard of 1Malaysia's song, surprisingly..
it it nice! it makes me feel patriotic~!! lol
(my Malay colleague almost fainted when i told him, this was actually my 1st time to know about this song)
Here is the song, Enjoy!
