Lan Berambeh Anak Sarawak 2013 Youth Conference & Career Fair

I had the opportunity to help out during the Lam Berambeh Anak Sarawak 2013 fair at PWTC last Sunday. It was a great experience for me to see so many Sarawakians during the event. Although I could only make it in the afternoon due to work commitments, I had a nice time nonetheless.

 Career talk (L-R) Azlan Iskandar, Dr Abdul Rahman, Jason Lo, Dr Madeline

Notes written at the time capsule.

 I saw several families there with young children interacting with the booths.

Short group photo with the moderator and the speakers.

A designer explaining his creations to Dato Sri Effendi Norwawi and wife.

My pals Hazwan and Ryan from Pemandu with Dr Effendi.

There was quite a bit of time to spare before the dinner began so I had to wait patiently in the large hall.

Since I look 'pro' enough to look as a press photographer, I shot some of the ministers  - Alfred Jabu, Datuk Awang Nassar and Dr Jerip. Dr Jerip has been a family friend for a number of years. Fortunately he still remembers me.

 Chief Minister YB Abdul Taib Mahmud arrives for the dinner.

 Puan Sri Ragad Taib and Pn Sri Empiang Ak Entah.

 Our TYT (Tuan Yang Terutama) arrives at the scene.

 I thought photographing Najib or Muhyiddin was tough enough with all their bodyguards. Unfortunately the TYT has lots of people around him too.

 VVIPs seated at the table.

Datuk Fadillah Yusof.

 Our CM delivers his speech.

Students had to queue up for their food. Some came as far north as Perlis to attend this event and were supposed to go back the same evening by bus as their accomodation was not accounted for.

 Getting ready to launch the event.

Abang Johari, Alfred Jabu, Abdul Taib and TYT looking at the TV during a short video presentation.

Cutting the Sarawak 50th Anniversary cake.

Simple food for the evening.

Cultural presentation - you can see one daily at the Sarawak Cultural Village in Kuching.

Hazwan requested a once in a lifetime shot with our CM.. This is the best I could manage.

Cheerful attendees dancing in front of the stage. Thankfully the VVIPs don't seem to mind that at all.

Organizing committee from Pemandu.

Last presentation for the evening.

Our TYT takes his leave.

I think our CM Taib Mahmud was purposely looking at me for this shot.. Who knows? :)

Thats all folks.
