Cela dit en passant, je suis tres content du resultat de cette soiree... Comme le Malaysian Evening, cela a permis a une communautes de presenter sa culture et de rencontrer d'autres residents par la meme occasion...

Tout cela a ete suivi pour moi d'une tres agreable soiree avec toute l'equipe qui a prepare tout ca... Ces gens des îles du Pacifique sont vraiment tres sympathiques!
Oui bon c'est vrai... je dois admettre que j'avais un petit mal de tête le lendemain...

-----------------------------------------

Wonderful evening last week-end!!! The 80 people who came enjoyed the traditional cuisine, music and dances...

By the way I'm quite happy about this evening's result... As did the Malaysian Evening, it gave a community the opportunity to present its culture and to meet some other residents of the campus at the same time...

All this was followed by a party with all the Pacific Islanders who organised this evening... They definitely are very nice people!
Ok... I've to come clean... I felt a bit under the weather on Sunday... ;-)]]>

Yes indeed... Even after a quite long summer, we finally reached the winter time here at the end of the world...

If we talk about winter, we talk about flu... of course I couldn't help getting sick... half of the last week in bed... wonderful...

Anyway I'm now back in class... Last sprint before my BEC Vantage (Business English Certificate) this coming Saturday... about time to get back to work... (to be continued...)]]>

<![CDATA[Heart of Art festival...]]>
Soit dit en passant, il etait agreable de profiter d'un peu d'Art dans cette ville qui, bien qu'elle soit remarquable pour d'autres aspects, pourrait combler quelques lacunes a ce niveau la... Ah Paris, Londres, Rome... et Geneve biensur ;-)

Ici une petite photo des benevoles (dont moi...) dans ces magnifiques T-shirts jaunes...





A quite busy week-end ending... Volonteer at the Parnell Heart of Art festival, I got to meet lots of local artists, painters, sculptors, photographs, dancers, musicians...

By the way, it's been really nice to enjoy a bit of Art in this city which is, despite its other nice aspects, lacking of it... Ah Paris, London, Rom... and Geneva of course ;-)

Here a little picture from the volonteers (including me) In these wonderful yellow T-shirts...]]>

<![CDATA[Malaysian Evening]]>
Pour ne rien gacher, environ 150 residents du campus etaient de la partie!!!

Une jolie petite soiree organisee par le comite des residents du TRC ... Ca fait plaisir de voir les heures que l'on investit porter leurs fruits...

----------------------------------------------

Interesting discovery of this culture, through short speeches by the Malaysians themselves, Malaysian cuisine tasting and finally traditional music and dances...

Something good to see, about 150 campus residents took part!!!

Nice evening organised by the TRC Residents committee... Good to see that our hours in this committee are fruitful...


(sur la photo, principalement l'equipe de Malais qui ont prepare la soiree... on this picture, most of the Malaysian team who prepared this evening...)

<![CDATA[La vie d'étudiants...]]> Nous decouvrons chaque fois des choses dont nous ne soupconions pas l'existence... mais bon en temps de guerre (donc pendant les études)...

--------------------------------------------

It's a period of war! We left with Didier and Ben on a 10 km expedition to the Pack and Save, the cheapest supermarket in Auckland...
We always discover there new things we didn't even suspect to exist... but since it's in a war restriction period (i.e. during the studies)...]]>

<![CDATA[Jolie petite regate...]]>




Last Saturday I went back to the RNZYS... Wonderful race for the Winter Series... (Yes, indeed, it is unfortunately ...) Still on the Farr 12.20, we started the season with a nice victory... It doesn't hurt as we say...]]>

<![CDATA[De retour du boulot...]]>
Bon et bien d'abord je m'excuse pour l'immense retard que j'ai eu dans la mise a jour de mon site precedent et de l'envoi des newsletters...

Je dois dire a ma decharge que j'ai eu un emploi du temps plutot charge ces dernier temps... Entre les etudes pour mes examens de mai et juin, ma presidence de l'Association des Residents de mon Campus (et oui c est nouveau) et mon travail en temps que serveur a temps partiel, je n'ai plus une seconde a moi...

Quoi que ce ne soit pas tout a fait exact... J'ai aussi pas mal voyage ces derniers temps durant les week-ends donc de jolies photos a venir... J'ai egalement participe a une jolie regate le week-end passe... une jolie victoire au national des Farr 12.20...

Hier soir nous avons eu une jolie soiree MOVIE QUIZ NIGHT, premier evenement en temps que president... ca s'est super bien passe, plein de monde et une bonne ambiance... que demander de plus...

Bon je vous laisse la pour ce soir parce que je suis vraiment tres fatigue apres le boulot de ce soir, mais je vous promet des mise a jour bien plus frequentes sur ce site! Donc venez souvent...

J'espere de nombreuses reponses a travers les commentaires des articles ;-)

A tout bientot

Guillaume


Hello Everybody!

First I have to apologise for having failed to write my last newsletter and update my previous website.

As an excuse I have to say that I've been quite busy these last months... My exams in May and June, my position of chair of the Residential Association of the Railway Campus (it's new, indeed) and my partial time work as a waiter take me so much time... I've not even one minute for me...

This is maybe not very accurate... I've also travelled quite a lot during my week-ends... so a few pictures bound to come on this page... I also took part in a regatta last week... It was actually very nice! Nice victory at the National Farr 12.20...

Yesterday we organised a nice evening... MOVIE QUIZ NIGHT, first event as chair of the association... A lot of fun, a good bunch of people and a very good atmosphere... what more can we ask for...

I have to leave because I had an exhausting night at work and I need some sleep... but I promise you regular updatings of my homepage! So come often...

I hope to see a lot of answers through the commentaries of these articles... ;-)

See you soon

Guillaume]]>
