The crowd was very enthusiastic and vocal. Even the wet weather throughout most of the day did not dampen the spirits of fans and supporters. They gamely stuck around to cheer on their favourite teams.
I did not side with any team yet enjoyed myself thoroughly watching the matches, especially the Skill Challenge and the All-Stars Game, which was the final event of the Northern Conference. I was so caught up in the game, I almost forgot to shoot videos. However, I managed to catch the Skill Challenge on video, where the winner, Neow Kar Fai of SMK Bercham, Ipoh managed to win the challenge in just 26 seconds.
All in all, it was a great way to spend the day. It was a day where I learned something new and made new friends. Oh, we were even treated to free ice-cream! Yay!
