Indonesian Charity Food Fair: Spicy, Sweet and Savory

Indonesian Charity Food Fair: Spicy, Sweet and Savory

Many have enjoyed a dose of Indonesian goodness in the Trent building on the 23rd of March with the Indonesian Charity Food Fair. The types of food that were presented in the Indonesian Charity Food Fair were magnificently varied. It also has boasted quite a few impressive native snacks, along with a rather quirky game for all to enjoy. The food fair was an event set up in collaboration between the Indonesian Society and the ACE Society. It was set up with two goals in mind. Firstly, to introduce Indonesian food to everyone in UNMC campus and secondly, to give back to the society. All proceeds from the fair are donated to Yayasan Pemimpin Anak Bangsa (YPAB), a charity organization that works to provide education for the underprivileged in Indonesia. A few stalls were set up during the fair and the types of Indonesian food were introduced according to the following categories: heavy meals, light snacks and beverages. As below were some of the highlights of the fair: For heavy meals: Nasi Kuning, Mie Ayam and Bakso (the chili accompanying the noodles was personally guaranteed by the president of the Indonesian Society to be a once-in-a-lifetime chance for all those who enjoy spicy cuisine)   For snacks: Risol, the Indonesian croquette, crunchy crust filled with soft chewy vegetables and the Pisang Cokelat, the beauty that is banana fritters slathered in thick chocolate sauce.     For drinks, the Soda Gembira, a drink consisting of soda water, condensed milk and rose syrup and Teh Botol, the Indonesian national drink. The fair also featured a rather amusing and unusual game, where players are...

UNMC Cycling Club: IJN Ride 4 Your Heart 2016

UNMC Cycling Club: IJN Ride 4 Your Heart 2016

On Sunday, 11th December 2016, the UNMC Cycling Club members took part in IJN’s 115km cycling event: Ride 4 Your Heart. This year, UNMC was proudly chosen as the annual cycling event’s venue sponsor. The objective of the event is to bring awareness to the importance of the most precious organ in our body – “The Heart”. As IJN puts it, “the heart is a giver of life – a healthy heart leads to a happy and fulfilling life. That is why it is imperative that we keep it strong with regular exercises and cardio activities – the most impactful is cycling.”   The 4 riders that participated from the Cycling Club are Malik Hisyam Zaihan, Keanu Nurherbyanto, Danial Azmi & Devraj Sathivelu (who’s also an alumni, graduated last year but joined to train with members on weekends and is a founding member of Cycling Club).   The flagoff was at 7am from the Trent building in an extremely large group of over 1000 cyclists.  . According to experienced cyclists, this happens to be one of the tougher cycling routes out there due to the treacherous hills on the main track.  . Malik (President of Cycling Club) gives an overview of the cycling adventure below:  . Flagging off and cycling out of Jalan Broga felt great because the traffic police completely closed off the roads for us and it felt magical to be cycling amongst a huge group of cyclists. The first challenge came at Peres which is after the Semenyih Dam (it’s the first long incline in the map), a long climb which takes approximately 45 minutes to clear. .  ...

DOTA 2 Tournament: Good Game, Well Played!

As the semester approaches its end, what better way to celebrate than with a round or two of Dota. From the 6th to 8th December, UNMC Gaming Society organized a Dota 2 Tournament for Dota 2 enthusiasts to claim the University’s equivalent of the “Aegis of Immortal”. the Spectator Room The event was made known days before the actual event through posters placed around the campus, and ignited the gamer within the ‘all-serious-no-play student’ facades. The call to battle was heard, and they began to plan. Four teams, namely Legit As Puck, 4kScrubs, 322 and Undecided rose to the challenge, but only one will reign supreme. A double elimination match format was employed, and all games except the Finals, will be “Best of 1”, while the Finals will be a challenging “Best of 3” matches.  Thus, the battle began. The Opening Match on Day 1: The Pick and Ban Phase The opening game saw 322 going up against 4kScrubs. As with normal competitive matches, each team tried to outdo another by strategically selecting and banning certain heroes. As the pick/ban phase was over, to any Dota enthusiast, it was clear that 4kScrubs had a better team composition compared to 322’s line up. As expected, 4kScrubs dominated the game, dictated the tempo, and ultimately overtook competitors and advanced to the semi-finals. The 2nd opening game had Undecided battling against Legit As Puck. This time around, the team’s composition was fairly even, and would see a more dynamic game-play. Legit As Puck knocked Undecided into the Loser’s Bracket, together with 322. The semi-finals between 4kscrubs and Legit as Puck eventually ended with...

During the group stages, the team managed to win 3 games and only lost 1 game. “We topped our group because we had more points compared to the other teams, and thus we proceeded to the semifinals.” Unfortunately, the team lost with a score of 12-7 to Malaysia Institute of Aviation Technology (MIAT) in the semifinal match. It was a really tough game as both teams put up a good fight. “At the start of the game, we were leading by 7-0, but our opponent managed to recover towards the end of the match.” After the semifinals, there was a huge rebound in the Third Placing match, and our rugby team won by a whopping 22-0 against Darul Ehsan Cougars.
