青奥运友谊营 Youth Olympic Games 2010 Friendship Camp

新加坡第一次主办为期6天的青奥运2010友谊营(Youth Olympic Games 2010 Friendship Camp),430个海内外的少年选手参与了为青奥运而首创的教育与文化计划。(Education & Culture Exchange Programme)


参与这个青奥运2010友谊营的青少年选手,来自全球130多个奥委会成员国 (International Olympic Committee membership countries)。


很难得的是,Friendship Camp也请来了一些历届奥运金牌得主,和少年选手们分享他们比赛心得。当然,选手们也有机会了解各国的传统与文化,以及其他一些比赛的详情。

Changi Airport

As mentioned previously, I am doing my APEC ambassador duties at Changi Airport  this week. (Latest deployment: Luggage bag belt area 31 – 34, Changi T2 arrival hall)

Just received the below news.

Again, I will be stationed at Changi Airport. Sigh.

Anyway, it’s okay. Never mind. Who knows, perhaps by the end of my 3-day APEC duty @ Changi Airport, I would be very much familiar with airport operations already, ready to do my job well next year.

Think positive right? 😉
