The event was organized by the Department of Information in their effort to promote ASEAN to the public. There were two competitions; the other one was Story-telling for primary schools and another set of judges were appointed for that group.

During the short break, we had singing performance by Pentarama group which was quite entertaining. Some people could really sing. People passing by that area must have thought we were the judges of a singing competition instead.
And before the names of the winners were announced, a pair of guests artists, Tasha Manshahar and Syed Shamim made their appearance. I do not know of their existence in the local music industry (because I seldom listen to Malay songs) but they are, I must say, very talented and have great vocals. And the audience which comprised mainly of teens and school students sang along and went crazy.
