She said that the entire team had to spend the night at Macau Airport because they can only go to the hotel next day. Elyzabeth also said that one of the obstacles they had faced while in Macau was the language, because almost the entire committee could only speak in Mandarin. “At the other day, we also had to get angry by the local residents because we were practicing in a city park. What else can we do? We have no representative place to practice in there,” she said.
