CSEC 2018/19: Preparation of a Student Leader

  CSEC 2018/19: Clubs and Societies Executive Camp is an event organised and hosted by the Students’ Association (SA) annually with the intention of both educating and advising the new clubs and societies’ presidents. The camp was originally planned to be held in the picturesque city of Malacca. However, it was later shifted to be held in Hotel Melia, a 4-Star Hotel in Bukit Bintang instead. It was held from 14th September 2018 to 15th September 2018. The presidents of all the clubs and societies gathered at the university’s bus stop to make their way to the hotel, knowing that they had committed themselves to this camp. And, they were glad that they made it. Apart from the initial hiccups, the camp was extremely well organised from head to toes. The new venue was stunning, comfortable and has provided great amenities for all the activities held. The objectives of the camp, in which were to make clear of the SA rules, regulations and procedures and to build confidence and motivation in the new champions of student life on campus was undoubtedly accomplished. Comments from participants include: “It was a great place for club and society presidents to network and set the foundation for future collaborations which will certainly make for a very interesting year!” “The simulation challenge has really tested us and made us realized that if we could plan and execute an event in just 2 hours, we can do wonders in 20 weeks!” The games were designed in such a manner that allows the student leaders to immerse themselves into the process of creating and executing an...

SA Annual Ball 2018: Night of the Stars

  The SA Annual Ball 2018 started with a harmony of notes and instruments that rhymed to the exciting soundtracks from three major films: “How to Train Your Dragon”, “Enchanted”, and “Avengers”, performed by our very own UNMC Orchestra. Our emcee for the night was none other than Ali Wail, who also won the Oscar award for Best Male Personality, unsurprisingly with his witty jokes and charming smile! Music kept everyone company as the night went on, with guest performances by our students Khairul Anuar, Kareshma and Leo.

Get hyped with ‘Unmute x Levi’s’!

Get hyped with ‘Unmute x Levi’s’!

  Unmute is an event organised by the universitiy’s very own music society, in which has lived up to its name as the central plaza (fountain area) was truly ‘unmuted’ by UNMC’s most talented artists on the night of 10th April 2018. With Levi’s as the co-organiser, there were multiple booths made available during the event, and the first one to catch my attention was the recycling booth. The whole idea of the booth, as well as its purpose, was to encourage people to bring their seemingly old and boring denim jeans to D.I.Y them, thus making them to be both wearable and stylish. For instance, some would paint all over their jeans, but the results were astonishing. Right next to the recycling booth, you would find that vending machine. With just some changes, you may pick a number to dispense and try out your luck. The envelopes contain various items, such as laces and RM200 vouchers. In addition to that, one would probably wonder why Levi’s has made an appearance for the event, and the answer to that question is that they attended as a panel of judges who would be in charge picking the ultimate winner of the competition. Moreover, Levi’s are on tour with a famous Malaysian band known as ‘An Honest Mistake’, moving from one university to another in order to select a winning team from each educational institutions so as to be qualified for a chance to compete Levi’s products for which its worth is up to a total of RM2000, headlining a special showcase at the bee and finally recording a single with...
