ACCA-TARC Student Conference 2008

Casa Rachado Resort Port Dickson, 12-13 July 2008

Hey there FAS committees...SMILE!! Thank ya all for a great year!! :)

I'm back in Penang!! I've been staying back in KL till so late mainly because of my last task as the Chairperson in Financial Accounting Society - the ACCA-TARC Student Conference. We've been planning for this event for more than a month and it hadn't been easy pulling everything together!!

This was the first time that we moved this event out from college and the hardest part was to get the approval from college...coz you know...nobody wants changes...people want 'status quo'...especially the 'bosses'. Ms Geh was the one who fought for us and helped us make this event a success!!

Somehow, we managed to get the approval and the next thing was to get started with our work. I've delegated work to each of the committees and unfortunately...ended up doing most of it myself with Ms Geh!! Reason being...the conference falls between their progress tests...which we didn't know when we booked the resort...damn!!

Since I'm considered the 'free-iest' person in the committee (coz I've deferred my course to go to US)...and I understand that many of them are 'top students'...I had to do almost EVERYTHING!! I had to type out the entire name list & particulars of all participants; arrange their groups, rooms & buses; design the entire booklet; design & type all the name tags; come out with ice-breaking & team-building games; be someone's secretary to email the banner guy....etc!! I don't mind helping out to do all these...but I'm pissed with the fact that some of them didn't even asked how was things going on!! Come wouldn't kill them to juz 'pretend' to ask right???

Our advisor, Ms Geh also ended up helping us to print the booklets and name tags...what the heck!! We should be the one doing all these and they didn't even offered to help!! some commitment as a committee please!!

But in a nutshell, the event was indeed a success and I'm glad to see the participants enjoying themselves and had a great time throughout the event!!! I appreciate the effort of all the committees who have helped a lot in all the activities (apart from one who 'fei gei' the whole team)despite having tests the next 2 days. It wouldn't be a success without anyone of them though!!! Juz wanted to let out my emotions here since we don't have any post-mortem...hehe! :)

This was how the banner looked like in SBS. Costs RM1200...used for less than 1 week...OMG!

I've finally completed my job as the Chairperson for Financial Accounting Society!! Itz now time to recruit the new batch of committees but I won't be involved in it anymore since I'm now back in Penang. Counting down 17 more days to departing to US!! I haven't started preparing anything yet...oopss!!!

I'll be leaving from KLIA on August 7...transit at Singapore...stopping over at Tokyo...transit at Washington Dulles and finally will arrive Huntsville, Alabama on August 8!!! What a nice date to remember...08.08.08!!! But i'll miss the opening of Olympic 2008...oouch!!

Haha...I know that this kind of thing happens all the time...I accept the fact and juz worked my ass off lo!! As you said...this post is just to 'lepas geram'...hehe!! As for the 'pretend thing'...some really did asked & offered help. I understood their situation and I was willing to help as much as I can so that they can study...I was pleased that they were aware of their responsibility...better than those who didn't even bother to ask right??
