But I saw this:
This ginormous crowd sort of swept me into Hall 3. I showed my AME ticket to the guy at the entrance but he ignored my ticket and just stamped on my arm. When I perused the hall, I said to myself, "Wait. These are two halls. The AME Fair is in just one hall..."
I squinted at the stage and only then noticed the sign: "World Robot Olympiad 2010."
medals and certificates.
In the photo above are Japanese kids. They have amazing concentration and I really felt the intensity of their tasks.
Because the geek in me was becoming stressed just watching the participants, I decided to take it easy and just explore the entire venue.
(I kept that promise. It was my cousin Robbie who went into and survived Pisay.)
I also think they were sweet, highly enthusiastic kids.
I was particularly fascinated by that jar and that mask. And yeah...sorry for the bad lighting.
This is my favorite costume. It's so elaborate! I forgot to ask her what country she hails from, but knowing my difficulty in communicating with them, I guess I'll have to do a bit of research. Uh, I don't know the girl on the right but I asked her to pose, too, since she was Pinay.
All in all, I had a wonderful time at an event that I wasn't supposed to be in. Good thing they were open to everyone. What I like best about this is that I discovered other countries and nationalities I have never even heard of. Whew!
