Let's Chill at Chilling Falls!

472595_10150612746964053_1618839184_o The 17 Chillers!
We took off at 8.00 am in the morning from Taylor's campus by bus to Chilling Waterfalls at Kuala Khubu Bharu. Everyone was quite tired as the day before we had an Amazing Race. Can't blame them la. But the energy of the members picked up when we cross rivers at Sungai Chilling. We arrived at the fall at half past 10:00 am and started our journey into the woods. The path towards the waterfall was an easy one as it was pretty straight with occasional uphills. For a beginner, it would be no problem! Well! the FUN part of the trip was dunking oneself into the waterfall. The BEST feeling ever. If you ever go there, you must try!

In the middle of the river trekking!
This was also where I first fell into the river and got my lower body wet.

We learned how to help each other while crossing rivers. Good team work guys!

Everyone was dead tired and slept soundly the bus on the way back. Well, I'm not gonna post any sleeping photos here. Oh and a few of them lost their slippers while crossing rivers! Take note do not wear slippers to Chilling Falls!

ADP Cup Amazing Race

428041_10150617289224053_782583498_n
ADP CUP!

The Amazing Race held by ADP Cup was by far the best in my life. To be honest, though we were worn out and tired at the end of the day, the bonding, the friendship, the knowledge on roads in KL gained and the calories and fats lost can never beat our weariness.

Gathered outside ADP classrooms about 1 something and was briefed by Alex on rules and station masters. After doing some warm ups led by Chee Jen, we got ourselves ready and on the mark of 1,2,3 all 5 houses ran to their respective cars and sped to Sunway Pyramid. I can feel the excitement and anticipation in everyone at the starting point. We got our first clue and headed to Central Market in KL by bus and LRT. It took us quite awhile to reach Central Market.

We spent roughly 10 minutes searching for the station master there and found them in Old Town White Coffee at last. And another 30 minutes was spent finding the locations shown by the station masters by photos. We were supposed to then take photos in that exact location.

Finally, we were done and was given the "3 birds" logo. Post Malaysia! Walked by foot to Post Malaysia and found the station master outside at the world globe place. We were then supposed to act out some actions based on several different countries. That was quite easy la.

Next up, we walked and ran all the way to Dataran Merdeka. The station over there was the longest and the most tiring station. We were supposed to go around KL to find 2 Secret Recipe, 1 7Eleven, 1 "POPULAR" shoe shop and 4 banks. Thank God we have Alyssa in our house, without her help, I don't think we would be able to complete this station's task in such a short time. She had been a great asset to the house.

After completing this station, we took LRT again to KLCC's water fountain. There is a pit stop rest over there. We were supposed to take a picture with the station master and develop it at a Photo Shop in KLCC. We rested awhile while Alyssa and a few guys went to develop the photos. And we then took off to Rum Jungle, a club in KL. Imagine Rum Jungle just in front of KLCC but we took the longer way and toured the whole KL before we got to Rum Jungle. Oh well, at least we managed to complete that station. Thank God we have Eugene and Jimmy, the math genius on the team! :)

After that station, we headed to Pavillion. The task given at this station was to find 3 different people dressed up roaming outside of Pavillion and take a picture with them. It took us quite some while as it was really crowded that time. Then from Pavillion, we were supposed to find the shortest way back to Pyramid. We decided to take a direct bus back to Pyramid and met DN half way. They were also waiting for the bus. It took us awhile there as no bus available that time :(

I really love the ending. Rushing all the way back to Taylor's from Pyramid. Kancheong man! Haha and we were tied with Disco Ninja at the end of the day. Tough fight. My toe nails bled and my legs were aching cause I wore the wrong shoe. -.-

I want to thank the organizing committee for organizing such an AMAZING race for ADP Cup! :D

AIESEC Taylor's University Local Committee Election

3rd of March was THE BIG DAY for AIESEC in Taylor's University. 16 brave souls took up the challenge to run for Executive Board for term 12/13. The 8-hour event consisted of speeches, questions and answers and then the tradition of all time - pouring of water (blessing) for LCP and also LCVP candidates. It was truly a nerve wrecking experience for the candidates and inspiring for the rest of the plenary. The new executive board was elected in the most democratic and transparent way possible. As usual, this formal event started with the opening speech from LCP candidate, Ms. Carmen Lee. After that, there was an hour of Q&A session where she was bombarded with tough and interesting questions. Then, it ended with her closing speech.

Next, the most interesting part of the agenda is the speeches and Q&A for all the LCVP candidates who were Jimmy, Zee Haw, Wen Kiat, JQ, Kelvin, Charlie, Raymond Her, Elleen, Zhi Yi, Lee Min, Marten, Rahul, Johnson, Hoe Yen and Elwin. It started of with opening speeches from the first 8 candidates. Then, we break for lunch at The V. We came back an hour later for the next 7 candidates. Then, moving on to the Q&A session. 15 candidates were seated in a row right in front of the plenary. Each candidate reflected their unique and creative style and personality through the questions asked. This, then ended with their short but sweet closing speeches.

The most awaited moment of the whole event for me was the Voting of candidates. Kavidha and Wan Sin were so nervous that we would have spoil votes this time. But thank God everything went well and there were no spoil votes. The people with voting rights did a job well done.

While the chair, Jessica and the election committee were counting the votes, the rest of us were busy filling water bottles and pails for the pouring later. Finally! The moment that everyone anticipated that is revealing of the results.

CONGRATULATIONS!
Ms. Carmen Lee 
as the next LCP of LC TU! 
And also the other VP elects!
Mr. Elwin Chin
Ms. Cham Zhi Yi
Mr. Hoe Yen
Mr. Gong Zee Haw
 Ms. Elleen Sia
Ms. Lee Min 
Ms. Charlie Cheong

I have to admit that I was really inspired and impressed by all the candidates. All the candidates had so much drive, passion and enthusiasm in them. It was truly an eye opener for me to witness such a memorable day for AIESEC in TU. I wish the LCP and VP elects the best of luck in leading the Executive Board for Term 12/13. Dream BIG for the future of LC TU. Our LCP, Carmen Lee's vision for LC TU would be to earn TOP GUN LC in Malaysia. I believe with her team, we can do this! :)

Once an AIESEC-er, always an AIESEC-er.

I believe in helping youths to become the better versions of themselves.

Signing off, 

Team Leader of Talent Management Ke Li

Back from MyLDS 2012

I'm back from MyLDS 2012. It has been a hectic yet awesome week spent with unique and inspiring AIESECers around the globe. The conference really opened up my mind to different perspectives. Each and every AIESECer has their own story to tell. It was a life-changing experience for me. Thank you to the Chair, Facilitators, Organizing Committee Members and everyone present there. Thank you for making it happen. :)

5th Day of MyLDS 2012

It's suit up day! Everyone was dressed formal in suits for our first ever Youth to Business Forum in Malaysia. We were very lucky indeed to have this during MyLDS 2012. We had invited a few guest speakers from Nippon Paint, Accenture Malaysia and ING. After Galdys from Nippon Paint gave her keynote speech,  we were broken up into 3 different sessions. All three workshops ran concurrently. I registered for the Nippon Paint workshop on Innovation. We each received a free cute little Blobby too! We were given a case challenge study on a corporate social project. I was the team leader for the team. Quite surprised that they picked me. Using my skills and what I learned throughout the conference, I was glad that I led well. We won a consolation prize. Just realized I didn't take a team photo with my awesome team.

Next, we had our forum with the four guest speakers from AIESEC alumni, ING, Accenture and Nippon Paint. They shared with us on leadership, innovation, passion, branding and etc. And they concluded our first Youth to Business forum.

We then headed back to the hostel to prepare for our most anticipated night - Gala Dinner with the theme Rock N Roll. Everyone was dressed up for the dinner. It was a buffet style dinner in some nearby restaurant. I can't really remember the name of the place.

Growing that mustache

By this day, everyone was dead tired due to lack of sleep the day before. We were supposed to get up early to wait for a chartered bus for photo shooting near the mosque. It's Kodak Moments time! It means camwhore. With our newly bought LC shirt, we took off.

Then, we headed back to the plenary hall for punishments! Next up, we had our Big Rock Challenge Part 3. Nothing really challenging for that part. Basically to recap and reflect on what we had done for the past 2 days. More to serv as a feedback session.

After lunch, we had TED talk by our first Malaysian to enter AIESEC International. She is currently working in Groupon Malaysia with other youths. She shared with us her awesome experiences., truly an inspiration to many.

After dinner, we had a talent show! I laughed my ass off in this talent show. People were so funny yet they have amazing talents. There was a guy who did eyebrow dancing, some people danced and some sang. The twins did a mirror show. Everyone's performances were awesome!
