The Grace of Autumn Rhyme Concerto

22nd June 2012

UTP Chinese Orchestra had organize this Red Sonata Fiesta concert and I went to watch together with Angel. This was actually the third time it was held and flashback, I was involved in it during the second time as Sponsorship Committee. I turned down the desire to join back because I was too busy with other things going on around me.

Nonetheless, the concert was amazing. They have:

Courageous Lion Dance

Roaring Dragon Dance
Melodious Liu Qin performance

Harmonious Er Hu performance

Nerve wreking Chinese Acrobatics

and concluding with a Tuneful and Musicify Awesome performance by the Chinese Orchestra

and most important, photos after the event...=)

SEDEX30 Family Day

18th June 2012

SEDEX30 is back and we had family day as usual to strengthen the bonds between committees and HICOMs. Committees get to know each other, play games, have fun and know respective jobscopes of each department.

From being:
EDX27 - Committee of Secretariat Department
SEDEX28 - Head of Secretariat Department
SEDEX29 - Event Manager + Special Task Committee

Finally, my last ovation in SEDEX30 would be Project Director. I am indeed very fortunate to become the Project Director of SEDEX30, it's like my wish was granted. From a small little committee to today's position isn't like a piece of cake. Lot's of hard work had been put in and I could say it was partially based on a little of luck too.

Hereby, I would like to share some of my greatest memories in EDX/SEDEX before becoming Project Director in SEDEX30

EDX27 - Engineering Design Exhibition 27 was the 27th time it was held in UTP since establishing in 1998. As usual, I went to committee recruitment interviews and actually had a hard time on deciding which department to enter. Finally, I made up my mind to enter Secretariat Department and was chosen by Jian Hao, the Head of Department at that time. During department meeting, I get to strengthen up relationships with seniors such as Robert, Irene, Ruth and Wan Fang, whom all of them teach me a lot of things and guide me all the way through until EDX27 ends. EDX27 in Secretariat Department was indeed very fun and I actually decided to continue in EDX28 as Secretariat Committee again.

SEDEX28 - EDX has changed it's name and rebranded into Science and Engineering Design Exhibition by our Chairman - Mr Zamri. Before the event even started, I was shocked that none of my seniors decided to remain in Secretariat Department and thus I was selected as the Head of Secretariat Department after being interviewed by the Event Manager of SEDEX28, Yvonne. Throughout the whole SEDEX28 was truly amazing, I was instructed to invite Primary and Secondary schools around Tronoh and Batu Gajah and in the end, I managed to get 4 primary schools which is a good start. All the jobscopes of Secretariat Department was successfully and efficiently completed with the help of my 7 wonderful committees, Charles, Pui San, Eevon, Woei Luen, Ching, Irene and Lin Kiat.

SEDEX29 - I again decided to continue in SEDEX but this time i was selected as the Event Manager but the position name was changed into Special Task Committee. However, I'm still in charge of Event Division which only comprise of Event Management Protocol, Secretariat and Prizes and Sponsorship Department. Other than managing these departments, my primary jobscope was to invite schools around Perak, Kedah and Penang to participate in SEDEX29. After weeks of hardwork and visitation with my ambassadors and Fedawin, I managed to get 29 teams from schools all around to participate, which was actually a tremendous achievement.

SEDEX30  - Rumors were heard that the top 2 position - Project Director and Assistant Project Director will be taken over by staffs. If it was actually in this case, I did not plan to continue in SEDEX30. However, later did I find out that there was some miscommunication between the previous chairman Mr Zamri and higher authorities. For the new chairman of SEDEX30, Dr Dennis Ling was selected and I took up the Project Director position, which was actually my dream once when I was in EDX27. Without realizing time passes so fast, I have been in EDX/SEDEX for the 4th time. Let's hope SEDEX30 goes on smoothly and history is once made again.

Me and Chun Liang - Both of us were the Head of respective Departments in SEDEX28. He did not join in SEDEX29 but decided to re-join in SEDEX30. Awesome Promotion and Publication HOD! but he choose to be AHOD this time.. =.='

Music for Life

16th June 2012
This could be only a short post because at this very moment, I have been busy with various things. I could only spare 5 minutes to write this post and thus, I'm actually speeding with my vocabulary now. Nonetheless, Euphonious 2012 have already ended and this could be my 3rd last event that I'm going to participate in UTP. I was in Technical and Media Department and throughout the event, I was in the audio room all the time and witnessing complicated audio systems.

When the event ended, I manage to grab a photo with my coursemate, Amin who was also the participant of Euphonious as an electric guitarist for his team "Bro's Code". I truly supported his band to the max, but his band only turned out as 2nd runners up. Furthermore, Amin also wont the Best Accompanist award and here's the photo.

Tuning in an Afro Circus

8th June 2012

I have been suffering from exhaustion and fatigue due to numerous work loads bestowed upon me in this new semester of Second Year Second Semester in UTP. Good news is that recently, I have just received my Second Year First Semester's results which turned out to be above average and satisfying. I hope I can keep up the momentum going this semester and hopefully maintain my CGPA.

However, in hand, I have too much work load such as being the Digital, Media and Technical Committee of Euphonious 2012,  Project Director for both Dare to Dream 2 and SEDEX30. Not only that, assignments, homework, projects, quizzes and thesis are all pending to be done during the weekends.

Just a few days ago, I saw this astonishing  view from my room in UTP and decided to take a photo of it. I really like this view as it gives me a peaceful and wonderful feeling to sit on my study table

As the Project Director of SEDEX30, I was involved in the Committee Recruitment Drive held on Tuesday, 5th June 2012. The response of it was magnificent and we managed to improvise our database with fresh and dedicated committee members.

On the 6th June 2012, Wednesday, I had a dinner with all the Michaelians studying in UTP. The dinner was to get around all the ex-Michaelians to meet up and share thoughts about our courses and lifestyle in UTP.

 Today, 8th of June 2012, Charles, Mei San and I went to Jusco to watch 2 movies to relax ourselves, Men In Black 3 and Madagascar 3. It was actually my suggestion to watch 2 movies on 1 night, and they accepted my challenge. It wasn't my first time watching 2 back to back movies but indeed, it could be tiring and frustrating if the movies are not good.

However, both the movies did not let us down as the sense of humour of both the movies are very high. We laughed throughout both movies and the most during Madagascar 3.

Short synopsis : Jay going back to the past to save Kay from an alien trying to kill him

 Short synopsis: Alex,  Martin, Gloria and Melman joining a circus troop and encountered many humourous scenes. Must really watch this movie again   

I went to Chatime today to get this new card

Both the tickets and the card
