I believe everyone have had enough of the unintentional moody and emotional tone in the previous entry, during the Graduation Ceremony. Nevertheless, I did want to capture what I truly felt during that moment, and I want it to freeze so I will be able to reflect back and feel it again in the future. It may not be something significant for many of you, but to me, this special occasion holds a special meaning, and I really want to remember it.
OUTSIDE THE GRADUATION HALL
Lets move on to something lighter, and more inspiring. Right after the graduation ceremony, the Graduands assembled at the front lawn, outside the graduation hall for an After-Party celebration, more like a casual gathering with family and friends over light refreshment. The refreshment included free flow of red wine, juice, and really tempting finger food. Unfortunately, I was so occupied that I did not even have time to stop by the refreshment tables for some nibbles.
Little did I expect people would actually turn up for my graduation. I know some friends would come, and some I have invited personally, but since this graduation was held on a much inconvenient Thursday night, with most people I know who are still studying in uni were pretty much submerged with floods of assignment and mid sem papers, I did not think that any would care to be there with me. I was wrong. More people came than I have anticipated, and half of them I would have thought gone missing.
Here comes the massive load of pictures.
It is moments like this that I could feel life is not so cruel after all, and not all good in the world is lost. There are still some good people, and people who do care about others, and willing to sacrifice their time and energy just to be there for you, and be happy for you. This is the moment that I can reflect back onto and remind myself that I am truly blessed with friends, and never take them for granted. I have always thought that most of the people I know from uni were gone, since I was supposed to graduate one year ago, and part of me was afraid that I could end up alone. Thank goodness that did not happen, and it turned out to be one of the best nights of my life.

Since I have so many photos taken that night, not only with my camera, but with another good-friend's camera as well, (we are talking hundreds here) I could not possibly upload everything up on this single entry. I could actually, and there is a high chance I could grab myself a unique position in the Guiness World of records for having the most massive sized pictures in one single blog entry. Gosh, that would be so wrong would it not? But on another thought in contradiction, it would be cool too.

So guys, if you do not appear on this blog, it does not mean I do not love you, or loving you any less than others. It is probably either the pictures turned out blurry, or badly lit,
or simply because I never wanted to take pics with you at the first place or badly composed. I seriously appreciate the presence of everyone there that night, and with this opportunity, I stretch my sincere gratitude for you beautiful people.
No, unfortunately the graduation series have not ended yet. Is anyone tired of my graduation entries already? There have been three entries and .... still counting.
