37th SSEAYP 2010 - Mortal discovers Angel on Lao Night

Day 24 - 17 November 2010

It's the second time since I saw a rainbow while on board Fuji Maru during the 37th Ship for Southeast Asian Youth Programme (SSEAYP).

A very good spot to relax oneself

Crew members clean the deck every morning

During morning assembly, National Leaders did a surprise cheer for Lao P.D.R Contingent for their National Presentation in the evening.

Somseuy Lao!

After lunch, we had Club Activity.

It's good to see Mortal's contingent involved in Club Activity because it would make it easy for me to locate Mortal.

Jiale and I went to the Sports Deck, where the Vietnam Contingent was having the Vovinam Martial Arts display. I had watched Vovinam on YouTube and admired the swiftness and impactful moves. Finally, I could have a try.

Thanks Tommy for imparting some self-defence moves

Next, we proceeded to the Sun Deck, where the Indonesia Contingent was having the Traditional Spa.

Had my hand polished by Cabin-mate Ade

Singapore and Malaysia contingents had the Henna painting activity.

Vietnam Contingent was holding a Miss Ao Dai contest. Each contingent had to send 3 representatives to participate in it. Singapore contingent sent Janelle, Jun Yi and Rehana. During Club Activity, the contestants had their photos taken.

After Club Activity, the Muslim Participating Youths (PYs) gathered at the Lounge to celebrate Hari Raya Haji. All PYs were invited to join the celebration.

After dinner, we had the Lao National Presentation.

The finale performance saw Lao PYs wearing the cultural outfit of each of the 10 ASEAN countries and Japan.
