Week 5

The scholarship award ceremony was over just a little over an hour ago. I have thus officially accepted my 50% scholarship award from Sunway University.

Thank you, Jeffrey Cheah Foundation :DDD At least the burden of a university student is lessened here xD

The ceremony registration started a little after 10.00 a.m., and the ceremony itself started only around 10.40a.m. and the Minister of Education (Dato' Muhyiddin) was the guest of honor. However he only gave out the certificates to the really genius parts of the Sunway students - Chancellor awards sportsman awards etc. But hey, still met the minister anyways. XD

Week 5 is ending now, and just two days ago I joined the meeting for ECHO club. It's kind of sad how not many people know about this club or what it does, but I will play my part while I am here to stay and hopefully get to see ECHO be more recognized as part of the university clubs.

My PTPTN loan application was approved, but I will have to wait for an e-mail from the Sunway admins before  I can submit my documents. Crossing my fingers for an average score of 70% by the end of my third year here so that my loan will not need to be paid back! xD Time to work hard starts from this very instant :)

Yesterday, I went swimming at the Sun-U residence as a club activity. Sadly though, it started raining really heavily after barely 15 minutes I was in the pool. There goes my plans of getting some forms of exercise for the week, Instead, I went to spend some money for fine dining at the dining room in campus around 7-ish p.m.

Yes, there is a dining room here that not many knows about. I was there to help out a friend who needed customers for this practical of hers. Every week on a particular day, the students will need to serve the customers and their lecturers will watch over them and give them marks or something.

They have a fixed menu every week, and the full course includes an appetizer, a starter, the main course and the dessert, along with tea or coffee at the end of the full course. You can also get extra drinks - juice and some canned drinks, for an extra RM3. The whole course costs about RM22.50 if I remember correctly.

The cost may be pretty high for just one meal, but I for one think that it's worth it. The food is actually pretty filling, and I tried creme brulee for the first time last night. I think I liked it. :D

So yes, so far so good, this university life. Just a few days ago I was cheering because all my assignments at hand are finally done, but today I found myself with new assignments and research projects again. Well, I guess it's time to get back to completing my journal readings and other assignments.

Leaving this gif of my friends here as a bonus. It's fun how Google+ automatically makes a motion gif from some pictures I get from my Whatsapp groups. XDD

I will forever be taking pictures of my coursemates and maybe by our third year I will get to make a nice video montage with all these pictures!

See you all again next week! :D
