The essay writing challenge are something like our exam. Time is given for you to write your essay. A few titles are given and you can choose any one you like. Those topics were mostly current issues. So, if you are one who don't read newspaper, you will be blur there. During that interview, some of the topics I remembered were :

Gulf of Mexico oil spill 2010
Government 's plan to withdraw subsidies
Facebook, Twitter, no interpersonal skills and social skills
+ a few more .. sorry I forgot

After writing the essays, we have to wait till we are called. Some rooms have 3 panels and some have 2 panels. In my case, I got the 2 panels one. Both doesn't look Malaysian to me.. haha.
