Am i doing the craziest thing in my life???

Wat ?! U only gave me less than 3 days to preapre and memorise a public speaking SCRIPT ???
Let me tell u wat's going on.....
Madam Hiew was in charge of this public speaking competition.....
she knew about this 2 weeks ago and Akmal has been chosen to represent our school......
BUT !!! Akmal quit at last minute and the teacher suddenly came looking for a replacement !!!
and I was recommended by a teacher.
HOW AM I GOING TO DO IT IN 3 DAYS TIME WITHOUT ANY PROPER TRAINING !!!
Akmal wasted 11 days and only left me 3 days !!!
I was totally no experience in Public Speaking before.
And I was told to chose a topic on my own .
Incredibly... I manage to memorise a 7 minute long speech in 2 days......(the script i just simply copied it from a website)
17 Julai 2009, 8.ooam...we reached there.....a small hall....with no air conditioner(broke down).....such a lousy place...haiz ...
9.ooam... start(no punctuality)...Malaysian are always like that !!!
14 participants.....3 judges.....my turn was no. 9...
And 1 important rule i didn't know about it.....the speech must be not more than 6 minute....mine was 7...UH !!!
So i was sitting beside a La Salle guy.....his name is Sean(form 4) he has been preparing this for 2 months !!!
How am i going to compete with him???
During my speech, when the bell rang for the second time (time up)...i got stuck.....my leg was shaking and my heart was beating fast.....but i manage to finish the whole thing lah...Thank God.
The second round was the inpromptu....
14 participants were quarantined in a small air conditioned room.....
each participant was given 4 minutes ONLY to generate ideas about the topic given, and 3 minutes to present...
so before my turn....we had fellowship....the youngest was a Form 1 girl from SMK Inanam. The guys were so funny... we talked about anything in that small room...it was quite fun to know each other...
AND FINALLY IT WAS MY TURN !!!
WAT THE HELL WAS SAFE SEX "??? i was dumbfounded when i got the topic....
The first thing that appeared in my mind was CONDOM...yes condom....
4 minute seem quite short for me to generate my ideas....wait a minute, i don't have any ideas !!!
So, again with shaking leg and heart beating fast....i crapped wat i had in my mind and my palm pad....
Here are my points:
I defined Safe Sex : doing sex very safely !!!(EVERYBODY LAUGH)
The actual definition was A process of a male and female intercoursing in a safety way.(defined by the La Salle guy)
- Use condom, avoid sperms entering the vagina so that won't produce baby( audience laugh)
-Avoid having many sex partners, if can only do it with ur eternal partner, so that u won't get sexually transmitted diseas like HIV.( A good point but i dono how to elaborate it)
-Use spermicide which kills the sperm.
- don't do it while a female is having period (The La Salle guy : we know how to count a female menstrual cycle, so we know when to do it, and pls control yourself at night....somthing like that)
-provide a safety and comfortable environment(wat do u mean?)
-Don't have sex at early age...still immature...
This time I was hoping the bell to ring faster , BUT THE BELL HAVEN'T RING.....oh no....i am running out of ideas and i don't want to end up my speech so fast....
so i started to crap.....U know wat i said? "Pls don't go to those kind of place like Kampung Air....u know those kind of thing...prostitution....yeah it will increase the rate of getting disease......OH SHOOT...A loud laughter from the hall ......hahahahaha... funny but good ending.
The La Salle guy was doing very good.....his points were quite similar, or i should say it's the same, it's just that i donno how to elaborate it in the right way.....
His point: avoid unwanted pregnancy, control population- countries like India, China, Phillipine(good point !)
So, it was an amazing experience, i gained friendship, knowledge and most importantly I LOVE PUBLIC SPEAKING !!!
So here are the winners for the 2009 Kota Kinabalu Secondary English Public Speaking Contest:
The winner was a Form 4 girl from St. Francis Convent.
First runner- up a Form 4 boy from La Salle.
Second runner-up a Form 5 boy from Sabah College.
