It is already 12am in the morning. I am so much tired. Today was the day of competition. Haha. The culture parade. UTSAV kinda thing. And the interesting thing was that, I was dragged and pulled into it by my friends and had to transform into a kadazan dip, to perform because, not enough people were there voluntarily. And to make things super interesting, I am not really good at dancing. For the sake of a friend, I tried my best to dance. And god willing, we got the fortune and luck, we really made it. The first place among all the colleges in India and abroad under the Manipal University banner( to those who took part). MMMC won!

Well, congratulations people.Thanks to the make-up professional. Bella and Alia. You guys were superb. 🙂 I am actually still on my bed, without even taking a bath after the tiring day.

  1. WOW the judging system is updated and computerized lets see how fair it is this time."You can fool some people all the time, you can fool all people some of the time but you cant fool all the people all the time".

  2. AHHH!!!
    really wanted to be there.
    one prob though: the events were not open to all. sad.

    it would be much better if students from different colleges could interact with each other on a greater scale.
