Nation’s Cup 2017: End of Another Chapter in SA History

Nation’s Cup 2017: End of Another Chapter in SA History

    As we all know and are tired of hearing, all good things must come to an end. Nations Cup spanned a glorious 3 weeks of sweat, tears, blood and pain and at the end of it all we all look back with fond smiles and laughter. New friends were made, new cultures were explored, new sports were tried out and for an unfortunate number of us, new crutches were bought. Mohannad (Dinho) began the Nations Cup closing ceremony bringing these sentiments to mind and echoed the theme of Nations Cup 2017; Friendship through Sport! He also took a moment to wish a speedy recovery to all the heroes of Nations Cup who were injured. He then took a few longer moments of silence to recall the rest of his speech. The individual awards were distributed for the best male and female players of each sport.      During a short break from the award distribution the NDC performed a medley of dances of varied genres that had the audience screaming for their favourite performers. However, the club that elicited shocked gasps from the crowd was our cheerleading team, The Beast with their stunts that all but defied gravity. They had the audience perched on the edge of their seats expecting disaster and earned the loudest applause of the night with their wonderful execution,  despite a few near saves. Omar, the SA Sports Officer and man behind Nations Cup 2017, then gave a short but heartfelt speech on the sentiments behind Nations Cup; to do the best you can and make the presence of your nation felt at...
Chinese New Year Celebration

Chinese New Year Celebration

Dong-dong-chiang! Firstly, the SA wishes everyone a prosperous and delightful new year, and welcome back to our beautiful campus for this Spring semester! In conjunction with the recent Chinese New Year, the SA collaborated with Nottingham Dance Club and our very own 24-Festive-Drums Team to bring you some exciting performances! The celebration kicked off with a graceful Chinese Fan Dancing performance by the NDC. This was followed by a heart-racing drum performance by the 24-Festive-Drums Team of UNMC. The drum team was founded in Malaysia in 1988. It was based on the 24 festive seasons recorded in the Chinese calendar (for example the Winter Solstice, Harvest Season, and Mooncake festival, etc.), and is unique to UoN Malaysia among all three institutions. Finally, our SA Executives went around distributing “Ang Pau”s which are red packets, the symbol of luck and prosperity in the Chinese culture, to our students who will hopefully be blessed all year round! Stay tuned for more events organised by the SA – such as the upcoming International Cultural Night (ICN)! Happy Chinese New Year & Gong Xi Fa Cai! John Lim Marketing &...
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. .  ...
