7th.March.2009! What a marvelous day!
Literally it was a day to Remember!
I participated in the Haiku (a short Japanese poem) section. Being a part of this Japanese Contest was an amazing experience! Choosing the Haiku, understand it, analyize it, and presenting the chosen Haiku in Japanese, Arabic and English.
I was a bit stressed, but when I stood there, fully prepared, infront of all those audiences, was just amazing! Right after that I was pretty sure that I'm gonna win! Because I know that I worked real hard in this contest. AndI felt that I DO deserve to win! When they started calling the winners names, I was just waiting for my name. The secong place winner "Fouz Habjouqa San"!!!! Was like "WOOOOW"!!
In the end, a heartfelt thank you to both, Tymoor Hamdokh sensei and Kikuchi Sensei, my Japanese teachers, who helped along the way in the contest.
