Calendata dropped in at the JCI-CYEA 2013 on Saturday on a hunch this might be a stand out event. And we were not disappointed. In fact, it was one of the best we have attended. We might write about this in another post.

This post is about the attendees. From what we surmised, JCI (Junior Chamber International, it's sort of like the Lions and Rotary clubs) invited many universities and colleges to send a delegation of students. Most sent a token or none, but one, Asia Metropolitan University, managed to convince a large, boisterous, well-mannered group of students to turn up on a lazy Saturday afternoon.

Well, it was the right call for we're sure the students enjoyed the event as much as we did. Sometimes, it is worthwhile just to show up.
