UCSIPSS Oath Taking Ceremony cum Pharmacy Night 2009

Phew..Finally, the event kicked off. I do not know where to start the story and I have very few photos with me. I will try my best to describe the whole event. Besides, I managed to grab some photos from MF, FB through Irwinder and some others as well as the UCSI University FB. And the story began... It was initially proposed to have a prom night for the very first time so that we can gather the alumni and also to give a chance for all of us especially the ladies to wear gown or dinner dress in an event hosted by our society. Since I am the Alumni Director, I was given the tasks to head this event. (so, that answer all the queries?) A month after the sem started & after we had formed the working team, Dr. Yeong wanted to organise the oath taking ceremony (annually held) together with this pharmacy night. What a big blow to us~ In addition, Mr. Jony left SOP so ngam that students will now deal directly with her. (so, u can predict the hard time I faced) Our preparation mainly started after the CNY. As this was the first of its kind, we have no guidances/references from anyone. Worse still, our quizzes started from week 6 onwards till a crazy long run till week 14. (so, that explain why things were delayed--> for Dr. Yeong) There were many stories, ups and downs in the process of organising this event. Thanks from the support from my committee members, lecturers as well as Ms. Kitty. 'We learnt from mistakes', quoted from Dr. Yeong. Let's move to the event night on 25th June 2009 at Perdana Ballroom, Bukit Jalil Golf & Country Resort.
It was me, MF, Alvin and Lee Yen standing about 30-40 minutes waiting for the arrival of VIPs who were late. (malaysian time, u know la)
Lee Yen was pinning the corsage on Prof. Dr. Jammal, the Dean of Faculty of Medical Sciences. The man in red tie was Mr. Ignatius Wong, the banquet manager of the place. Finally, the VIP, Datuk Nancy Ho, President of Malaysian Pharmaceutical Society (MPS) arrived and accompanied by Mr. Lam Kai Khun, General Manager who supposed to be a registered Ph as well. Datuk Nancy was signing the Guest Book. Our emcess of the day were Joanne Quah and Erwin. After my speech, it was followed by Prof. Dr. Jammal and then Datuk Nancy Ho. I did not memorise the speech nor I read before the event due to some circumstances. So, it wasn't a perfect one plus the speech was edited with some words that were difficult to pronounce. Haha..I received 'compliment' from Ms. Kitty who also worried for me. No choice but to use hand movements. Then, the three VIPs including Assoc. Prof. Dr. Yeong officiated the event by placing the pestles on the mortar of which the light lit up and the whole ballroom lights were dimmed. Thanks Joanne for sacrificing her mortar & pestles won during Patient Counseling Event 2008 as well as Miss Eugene for the pestles. Also, to those who made this special opening. After this officiating ceremony, there was a slideshow showing the pictures of the graduating students during their 4 years time in the university. After that, it was followed by a speech from Jason Lee representating the graduating students. It was a good speech that received loud of applause from the audience as well as the VIPs. I was seated on the VIPs table together with Alvin. I wanted to highlight that it was so 'cham' sitting on the main table. Most of them ate little and it was very difficult to blend with their talks. However, we have to attend to them all the time. Dr. Chin continued to tease me. I was so hungry but I can't eat much involuntary and the was many leftovers in the 'dorm' set. After some time, I can't tahan and went to look for food and ordered 'ais kacang'. Dr. Yeong was hungry too, so she ordered me to get some soups and fruits. So, this is the official oath taking ceremony conducted every year for the graduating students. The oath symbolises the conviction in taking on all the responsibilities as a Pharmacist. They pledge to uphold professional competency in the profession and maintain the highest principles of moral, ethical and legal conduct. After the oath taking, they took picture with the VIPs and the lecturers. It was difficult to invite those lecturers to attend such function and I wanted to thank for these bunch of supportive lecturers. See the happy faces? Next, was the souvenir and certificate giving ceremony to the graduating students. Each of them received a pen carved with their own name. As a token of appreciation, the organising committee gave a special souvenir while UCSI Marketing Department sponsored some UCSI University merchandise to Datuk Nancy Ho presented by Prof. Dr. Jammal. Dr. Yeong was so happy that finally she can be up on stage and presented a fruit basket to Prof. Dr. Jammal. I had to personally delivered the fruit basket the following day because we forgot to give him when he left the event. The first performance was from the Y3 students. I would say it was a superb performance showcasting different types of dances from the olden days till present reflecting the theme for the event 'Past to Present'. So, you think you can dance? They can and did it well. The supportive lecturers..we love you so much for your presence. The second performance was from Y1 students comprises Vyonne, Kah Keet, Lim Siok Chien and Heah Chia Ming. This couple has briliant voice that surprised everyone including the VIPs. (and it looked like their wedding dinner) Then, we have experience sharing by the alumni. Managed to grab PK, sorry for 'dragging you into water'. Anyway, sincere thanks for PK and Ilk Han for coming to our event. Hope there will be more in future and hope the juniors will continue to organise such event. After that, we have a magic show from a professional, Mr. Kenoph Lai who happened to be our very own student from School of Medicines. I managed to deal with him to give a low price for the show which is about 10 x value lower than his usual price. This was the performance from some of the committee members singing 3 songs.
Following event with no pictures. Graduation ceremony - I also unsure how the event was carried out as I was away to settle for the payment. There was a slideshow, a poem and talks by Irwinder. The graduating students were given a set of question to be answered and then.. I don't know. Haha. Ballroom dancing - There were 3 couples on the stage and 3 couples on the floor. Too bad to Chui Wei & Wei Ling as both me & Alvin weren't around at that time. Sorry yea. So, the event ended about 10.45 pm and the photography session started non stop.
Let's began with me. L- Me and Lai, the magician R- Me & Yueh Teng L- Me with cheerful Shuennie R- Me with Ying Jun.. haha Me with the Prom King And the Prom Queen. All Y3 students Another view These people were complaining on the photographer who was unable to take a shot after so many times. The organising committe
Finally, I would like to tender my sincere thanks to all my committee member for their hardworks and time spent for this event. Next, to everyone that attend to this function, tq so much. Also, to the VIPs, lecturers, alumni, webTV crews, UCSI Uni's photographer as well as Mr. Ignatius Wong.

T-break: It's HOLIDAY!!!

Yo..after months of struggling, finally it has come to an end. Exam had finished last Thursday. I get drunk on that night itself at Scarlet, Cineleisure. Though exam has over, I was still busy with the preparation for the Oath Taking Ceremony cum Pharmacy Night 2009. The event has kicked of yesterday night. Yesterday was a day to remembered. Morning was busy with the preparation, afternoon spent some time in SOP then when went back, I didn't have the chance to rest and did not finish my meal guess for the first time. Everything was so packed and needed to handle many things. I was glad that the event run smooth. Thanks to all my committee members as well as the others attendants.

Nasi Goreng at ALIBABA restaurant, Angkasa Condo, Cheras

Exam period is indeed a dreadful period. This time, it was even more dreadful with shorten study break. As practised since last semester, I continued the tradition of tar pau'ing during the period. You can check my previous post here. At first, I thought I can save a lot since I was really in shortage of money. However, it was in reverse. I used more money than I used to. Perhaps, too much money spent on foods, nutritious supplement and drugs. Nutritious supplement? Haha.. I bought milks and fruit juices. For drugs, it was to treat my long term dermatitis problem. For my tar pau session, I used to take away with drinks such as 'cam ais' or 'teh ais'. Besides money, the reason for tar pau'ing was to spend time eating while surfing net. As for me, I really addicted to Internet and I spent quite a long time online. Hence, by doing so, I can save my time to check some blogs, read the latest news, spamming at forum and others. Unless it was in critical level, I used to online during my dinner period and it seemed to be never miss! Contrary to previous semester, I do not take any photo of the nasi goreng. I must say that the nasi goreng offered here is really delicious. Though, this is a mamak restaurant, the chefs for the nasi goreng are 3 Malay ladies who take turn one another. Now, I want to tell a funny joke. I would like to divide the 3 ladies into physical size which are BIG, MEDIUM and SMALL. WHY? The best cooked nasi goreng is by the BIG sized lady. The medium one is so so.. while the small one is not tasty at all or perhaps no taste. The main chef is always the big sized lady but she seemed to be on and off duty without fixed schedule. So, if you are hoping for the best, you know who to look for. In addition, if you see all these 3 ladies are not working, do not ever order the nasi goreng. It will be cooked by a mamak and take my words, 'order at your own risk!'. I had tried and the result is 'AWEFUL'.
Nasi goreng seafood, RM 5.00
Nasi goreng seafood, Rm 5 (I also dunno why different time got different types) Nasi goreng Hai Lan, RM 4.00 Now, I am going to teach you how to differentiate the nasi goreng. If the gravy or your dish is in dark colour, you will get your rice in opposite tone. So, for nasi goreng Hai Lam, expect the rice to be like below.
Nasi goreng ladna, RM 4.00 The specialty of this nasi goreng is that it is sour. It uses the green chilis used in the wan tan mee to make the soup sour. I didn' t know that green chilis can cook to such taste. After being told by one my friend that the sotong in the Mamak is not fresh, I always order xx nasi goreng + ayam sahaja. I really dunno how to differentiate, my job is to eat only. Haha.
Nasi paprik, RM5.00 I would say this is my favourite. However, each time I ordered, it will be different taste. Afterall, it is still the same with spicy gravy and the pamelo leaves. Nasi samudera, RM 5.00 It is nothing but a yellowish fried rice with a fried chicken. Nasi goreng Thai, Rm 4 It comes with a white fried rice with an egg. Nasi goreng mamak ayam, RM 5.00
Do I still need to tell the address? Look at the title~
