As expected, Korea will be hosting Winter Games in 2018. By then, I would be participating in snow jumping event (in my dreams la) so watch out for your MALAYSIAN representative! Rawr~ I will prove that there's "snow" in Malaysia!
Kim Yu Na's (김연아) presentation in her country's bid for Winter Games was great! She was a bit nervous when she's presenting in English but she did it quite smoothly. Well, I can understand her and most Koreans trying to present something in their non-native language..
I might be in Korea again in 2018. I told you - as a ski jumping representative. Wait and see ^^
