My first ever emcee job!

15 Dec

Hi everyone!!!

I was so excited last week because another opportunity came up! On Wednesday I was asked directly by the H.E. Lee Yong-joon, South Korean Ambassador to Malaysia to test out whether I was capable of Emceeing for a Business dinner!  I confidently went in for an interview and got the job!! I had less than two days to prepare a script because the dinner was on Friday! On the day itself, I was pretty nervous because I have never emceed at all in my life, yes not even for ice-breaking games you play amongst friends!

Me! Prepped up and Ready to Emcee!

Me! Prepped up and Ready to be the Master of Ceremonies!

So how did I get to know the Ambassador of the South Korean Embassy in Malaysia? Well, I met him first when I had worked for the embassy during the visitation of H.E. Lee Myung-bak, President of South Korea in December 2010 and again when H.E. Park Hee-tae, Speaker of the National Assembly of South Korea in September 2011. There is one thing I must say about him, he is someone I respect him fully as he is our leader in Malaysia.

I would love to say more about the event but it was held exclusively for the people invited, so maybe if I get another opportunity to emcee again for another event, I would write every single detail that happened!

Until then,
Cheers!

Voting the for the South Korean President for the first time

8 Dec

Anyong! So today I was at the South Korean Embassy in Malaysia for the 18th Republic of Korea presidential election. The voting period for Koreans living overseas is different. For us, we can vote anywhere between the 5th-10th of December, however the Election day in Korea itself is to be held on the 19th this month.

So who did I vote for? The ruling Saenuri/New Frontier Party Park  Geun-hye or the opposition Democratic United Party Moon Jae-in?

Let’s keep that a secret shall we? 🙂
