June 2017 is a hyperbusy month for me. I have schedule to make the highest number of presentation in a month, throughout my research life. Phew… 😰
It starts from:
1st June, then 9th, 12th (one of the most important ones), 19th, 25th, and 26th. SIX presentations on different topics and scopes within a month!!! 😱😱😱
After my first presentation on 1st June, Le Supervisor walked in to our office: “It was great, Angelyn. Well done! 😎”
“Oh, thank you. 👋”, not really impressed because another one is coming soon and I have to grab all the time I have and start preparing. *typing typing typing….💻*
He was checking on his mailbox: “Awww, Angelyn, can you please come and look at this…”
I had a quick read… Hmmmmm…. It’s about a famous musician in Japan requesting to have a concert in our institute 🎻🎶. Le Supervisor is the coordinator for that.
“I’m thinking to do some interactive activities with the members of our institute after the performance, but I have no idea 😕. Angelyn, I know you were leaders in many organisations before and organized many events. Can you suggest anything good?”
I turned around: “Well, what kind of audience do you expect? How many people will be attending? What is the aim of the activities you gonna have?…*Endless of questions 😜*…..”
He gave me the answers.
“I usually do magic tricks 🎭, showing the audiences something amazing, and teach them some tricks in a funny way. It would be interesting and interactive I guess. 😉”
With his eyeballs popping out 👀: “Magic tricks??? I don’t know that. Have you ever performed that? 😮”
“Yeah, I used to perform magic tricks to young cancer patients in the hospital, and some old folks. It was fun! I always made them laugh so hard ✌😁. Hahaha!”
He took a few seconds to think: “So on that day, I imagine you instruct me on how to do it, and WE perform the magic together? 😁”
In my heart: “Huh??? 😮 Since when there is a “we” in the program plan??? 😮😮 I didn’t even agree to be part of the project.😮😮😮” I think I translate the questions into facial expression very efficiently. He noticed that. LOL!!! 😂😂😂
“Angelyn, would you assist me in organizing this event and be my partner for the interactive sections? 😎”
Ahhhh…. here comes the invitation…. 😅 It’s hard to say No because he sounded so sincere. 😝
“Oh, when is it?”, checking on my schedule.
“Some time in June. The time is not fix yet. If you agree, I can let you to decide the date and time. I will get everyone to just listen and follow. 👍”
“Hmmmmm…. June is kinda busy…. I want to be fully prepared for the presentation on 12th, so I can’t do it if it’s before that. 😑”
“Ok, so I will inform other members in the project, ‘Not before 12th, the magician Angelyn is busy before 12th!’ Awww, Angelyn, I can’t wait to see your magic show!!!”
The date is decided, on 16th June, the Magician Angelyn returns…. 😎😁😍
