The hall is now glinting with flashlights, with arms waving from one side to another, with voices singing beautifully in unison, for the last time, before the farewell moment. The start of the song “How was your day?”, composed originally by Amsers 19-22, also marked the end of the Graduation Night. Their common hall has now been closed, but each and every one of them will now embark on their own boulevard, opening up an entire new chapter in their life: “How was your day?/ “How was it?”/ “Sun shining or raining pouring”/ “Bitter or sweet?”

“Far away, yet we say”/ “Good day! Here we stay”.  1000 days in Hanoi - Amsterdam, raining or shining, blissful or melancholy, of course with a few times faltering, will remain the most beautiful ones in every Amser’s youth diary. Dear 19-22, whatever lies ahead, please have this at your hearts: “Once Amsers, Forever Amswers.” On behalf of the Production Department from Ams Wide Web, we wish all Amsers of class 19-22 success and happiness on their own boulevards!
