Fyi, I am currently pursuing my degree in a lovely local university called UNIMAS(Universiti Malaysia Sarawak) in Kuching. I'm taking Multimedia Computing as my major in Computer Science. It was exhausting yet exciting during this orientation week. I needed to get up at 5am and could only get to sleep at around 1am every day. It's a bit like National Service. Cos we were having 6 meals per day just like NS lol. That's too much for me actually. =P What attracted me much during this whole week are the Sidang Pleno (Malay Public Speaking) and Public Speaking sessions. It was fun having to listen to the speakers giving their talks on stage though it was ice-cold during the time in the hall. After that there's this Cheers session, in which every college was asked to create a cheer/slogan of our own and see which college has the best cheer of all. Unfortunately, my college (Sakura College) was not the best but I could see everyone from other colleges was enjoying our cheer. That's more than enough to me. =)
Another thing that attracted me is that there are some foreigners from Turkey, China, Canada and Indonesia coming all the way here to pursue their study. I never thought I would ever see foreigners in local universities cos I always thought they would only appear in private's. So that really amazed me. And what even lightens me up is that one of them (a guy from China) is doing the same major as me! So I will have a foreigner as my classmate~ That's just so cool. xD
However, I was quite upset for having the need to take up Preparatory English class (not compulsory subject) cos I got a Band 3 for MUET(Malaysian University English Test). Getting an A1 for GCE 'O' Level(The General Certificate of Education in the United Kingdom), I've always had high hopes in English language. So the MUET result was totally disappointed me. =/ Anyway, thinking at the bright side, it's good for me to take it up too. As that would improve my English better. =)
One more thing, I'm happy to know that the Dean of my faculty is an Indian. That's only because I enjoy listening to people speaking in English better than Malay. Not to say I'm racist but most Malay lecturers teach in Malay during lectures and I do not prefer that. It kind of lowers the standard to me.
Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!! 2010 has finally come to an end. So I'm wishing you guys all the best in 2011 and have a good night. ^ ^
