Well here's my part of the story. I was in charge of transportation in the event. All I had to do was to make sure everyone gets to the competition safely. On Friday the 14th, me and a few others from UDS were waiting for Dinesh to get the cars and head off to the airport to pick up a team that was flying in at 3.40pm. I was shocked at 2pm when I received a phone call from Christ University, India saying that they have already arrived and are waiting at the airport. We quickly rushed to the airport in 2 cars as we only had Kancil's, which is a very small car.
One of the cars ran out of fuel right outside the petrol station

12 hours of driving was fun. I met a lot of people from different countries, had a good 30 minute chat with them before dropping them off at the "hotel" which was Sarakraf Pavilion, a homestay bungalow.
The next morning, I headed to Faculty of Social Sciences where the competition was being held. Using the 2 kancil's, we transported about 10 tables and 60 chairs. We took a few rounds and each round, we could take 5 tables or 10 chairs. It sounds unbelievable to transport 10 chairs in a Kancil but a good thing about Perodua is that they design their rear seats to fold so that there will be more trunk space.
After that many rounds, I headed off to the airport to take away McDonalds for one of the adjudicators. She didn't have a proper meal on the day before and she's vegetarian so she wanted the McEgg and hash browns. It wasn't actually my job to do that but I just did it as a favor.
I didn't have much to do by 3pm so I decided to head back to my room, have a nap and get ready for a Christmas dinner that night. A blog post of that night will be updated soon.

It was a long, wonderful and tiring weekend. I went back to the university with good news that presentation was postponed to another day and I had no class in the morning on the next day. Great news and great sleep. :)
Take care :)
