!_going to the bank_!

hello guys we meet again on this fine day. now i am actually on my way to the bank to open up an account so that the mighty minds company can cash in the money that i've won. huhu.

actually i forgot to tell you all about mighty minds. so for your information, mighty minds is a four stage competition that will need your 'mighty' mind to help you in the hope of qualifying in every round. so actually it is a group effort that have made us win that competition. i little info about the competition and how did we do in the competition.

so actually, my friends and i was the representatives of mjsc pengkalan chepa for the mighty minds state challenge in kelantan. we were a little bit unprepared as we got the notification for the competition a little bit late but we still had to prepare ourselves for the worst. during the competition, there were 60 schools that entered the competition and we were a little bit stunned by that as we thought mighty minds is an ordinary competition but obviously there was more to that.

the first stage of the competition, there were 20 hard questions that we needed to answer. but out of the 60 schools only 15 schools can qualified to the second round which was the invention round where you need to invent the things that have been asked to do. thank god the first round mrsm pengkalan chepa manage to fill the spot in the next round and mrsm pc got 2nd in that round.

the second round,we were all so nervous in that stage where we have to invent a tall tower with a deck that can move up and down and can revovle 360 degrees. and we were given only 1 hour and 30 minutes to finish all the work. in the end, our team finally manage to realize the idea and during this stage 10 team will be eliminated before qualifying to the third round where you have to present your product infront of everybody. mrsm pc got the fifth place and we still have the chance to win the grand prize. thank god for that.

during the presentation, i was especially nervous because there were crowds of people that were watching me present but still, i had to brave myself and cope with the situation. i present and we were all hoping that our presentation were enough to put our team's mark infront pf everybody. in this stage, there are not going to be any elimination of team and all were qualified to the next round which was the quick-fire round where you are asked to answer the subjectives question. how sad we were when our team only managed to answer 2 questions but still our hopes were not going to be affected by that.

the moment of truth finally came. all teams were crossing their fingers, hoping that their team would be mentioned last as the last name to be mentioned is the one who will be the winner. how shocked were we when the judges announced that our team was tied with the chinese school so the judges decided to judge us based on our presentation and the win went to us as our presentation was better than the other team. YAHOO!

okay that's all for now. the bank is calling my name now so i've to go. by the way our team won RM5000 and how happy were we to win that. huhu. so till then see you again next time. PEACE OUT. >,<
