17th February 2014
It is about 4am as I begin this CUMaSKini. The world is a deathly quiet, save for the soft whirring of my heater and the clacking of my keys as I type this. The dim glow of my screen spills onto my desk like artificial moonlight, white and pallid. Reaching out for my mug, I cup the warmth in my hands and bring it to my lips, the taste of burnt coffee filling my mouth. I set it down and check my watch, questioning the insanity that are 9AM lectures. Further questions include “how long have I been asleep at my table?”, “why is there a Haribo on my face?” and “hmm, should I eat it?”
Welcome to Week 5.
But hey, it’s not that bad (yes it is), because look, formals!
Registrations for the Lent Formal have opened on the Facebook CUMaS page. If you’re not already a member of the group, please do join it for more live updates on CUMaS happenings so you don’t miss out! Spaces are very limited, so sign-up quickly and make the payment to avoid disappointment (Treasurer Livia’s disappointment in your failure to pay her, that is).
We are also having our very first CUMaS Plus Formal for the grads who need a little break from Week 5. Again, spaces are limited so get on these metaphorical hotcakes now!
Also, our MNight Event Page and Trailer has just gone live on Facebook so check that out and invite your friends! We also have a cover photo that’s the bee’s knees, so feel free to emblazon your Facebook profile with that.
Our Speaker Series will also kick off this week with Mr. Dzameer Dzulkifli, Teach For Malaysia CEO tomorrow, and Mr. Tan Thiam Hock, founder of the international cosmetics brand SilkyGirl on Friday. Catch these two highly successful Malaysians as they share their experiences in their fields.
We would also like to emphasise the recent amendment in the details for the CUMaS Committee Elections. For clarification see below!
Further away, our friends at UCL MSoc are having their MNight: The Lost Prince next week. I hear it’s almost as good as the Cambridge one. Get your tickets and check out their trailer below!
Anyway, that’s all for now, hope everybody is keeping well and had a good Valentine’s and Chap Goh Mei 🙂
Week 5? Pfft, no problem.
Yang selalu sibuk,
