Am I Still In The Youth Category?

I wonder what is considered youth in this country. Is it a person aged 35 and below? Or 40 and below?
I stumbled on this via Twitter and thought, hey, sounds like a super cool event. Unfortunately, the contest didn’t state what youth was.
The exciting thing was – all these lovely, famous folks were coming to Putrajaya this 16 November. There’s Sir Bob Geldof, Lorraine Hahn, Biz Stone (smack yourself if you don’t know who this is), Garry Kasparov and many more top personalities of the world.
I guess we all need to act like groupies once in a while.
It’s exciting to bask in the same venue and be so close as to be able to touch these people.
They’re alive and here and in the flesh.
It doesn’t matter if you’re 17 or 70, if you come face-to-face with your idol, you go all queasy and weak and feel like a stupid, gawking teen all over again.
Anyway, if you’re living in KL, this is the best contest for you. After all, if you win, you get to rub shoulders and elbows and do the camwhoring with these people.
Deadline’s tomorrow.
All you need to do is to tell THEM (the AirAsia people), if you could change one thing in your lifetime, what would it be, and who will it be for? Yourself, your community, or your country? And how will you contribute to it?
I know. Sounds like some cheesy topic you get in your sekolah menengah essay-writing classes.
But, cheesiness aside, you might come away with some magic dust that inspires you to greater dreams in life.
I know for a fact that people need inspiration and inspiration in the form of your fave idol/popstar/Nobel laureate winner/web2.0 guru/media star can kick you out of your humdrum life.
Go impress them!

    • Alison – missed you at my blog. How are you my dear? I would go if I lived in KL. You know me, I like poking my head into things like this when I have time.

    • Hi suyin: Not many people grow Indian gooseberry (amla or cermai in Malay) anymore but if you go to some rural areas, you might come across this plant. Amla is usually used by Indians for darkening their hair. The light green berries are tart but great when made into ‘jeruk’. My neighbour used to grow this plant and we used to pick and eat the tart fruits.
