The AEF wrapped up today. Things pretty much went the same as yesterday. Although, the Cambodian way of doing things -- i.e. at the last minute -- can be frustrating.
Like yesterday, I was working on summaries of speeches. Basically, I was taking notes that I planned on cleaning up later. Well, during the closing remarks, the UC President promised that we would have copies of the summary available at the end of the conference. In other words, I had 10 minutes to clean up my notes and get them printed. EEK! They certainly know how to keep you on your toes here, and I did my best to rise to the occasion. I nearly wanted to cry, though. I wish things could run more efficiently!
On a more positive note, one of the speakers at today's forum, Din Merican, is a fellow blogger. He's a former business man who now works with a Malaysian politician. (I asked him what caused him to make the switch from business to politics and he denied being involved in politics, so maybe I don't quite understand what he does.) Anyway, he's nearly 70 (or so he says -- he looks much younger), but he's a really cool guy. Check out his blog, The Malaysian DJ. (Request a song!)
