Photographers hunting for good angles and moments, thanks to all of them that you can find more photos from the event on Flickr. They were using DSLRs while I was using my long-serving mobile phone, it’s actually only two years.

On the backstage, performers were preparing. Messy but thanks to Indonesian students participating, the event went smoothly despite the bombing in Jakarta.

Helmi Yahya and Sandra Angelia, Miss Indonesia 2008 were on stage. The event organisers gave out five tour packages to Indonesia that night. The person who got the trip to Bali will stay in Ungasan whereas the winner for the trip to Yogyakarta will stay in a hotel called ‘Manohara’. All the Indonesian students including me were laughing after we heard the name of the hotel.
