“Though we could not go very far in the finale, we are immensely proud of our achievement to be in the top eight. It was a good opportunity for all of us to improve our skills,” enthused Yong.
“It was an enjoyable and fun moment for all of us. We didn’t expect that we could manage to reach the finals as we found that there were a lot more skilful players who took part in the competition. Even though we lost in the qualifier round yet we felt proud to be in the top eight among the top 28 teams,” said another participant, Chai.
