29th November 2013

Andddd we’re in Week 8! What’s kicking, guys?

With just one last week to go, the end is near! And what better way to celebrate than to gorge yourself on some Malaysian food. Why even wait till the end of term? Catch us this Saturday at the Malaysian Food Feast and gorge to your heart’s content. There are only a few spaces left so hurry and get your tickets!

Also, don’t forget about the CUMaS/CUMSA End-of-Term Pub Night this coming Monday! Kick back for an evening of drinks, catching up, and live music by Adele, Michael Jackson, and some of our very own (okay, maybe just the last one) (we don’t need you Adele!)

Speaking of live music, Chinese (HK) student rock band, DRECK, will be putting up a charity show this Sunday to raise money for those left devastated by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Give back this holiday season and make a difference!

Also, the table booking is open for the Chinese New Year Ball 2014 – Moonlit Shanghai 新上海滩 (new on sea beach, if you’re wondering).

Today is also the last day to get reduced early-bird tickets for the Churchill Spring Ball 2014. I hear their Arts guy is totally the bees knees. And awesome. And cool. And totally not your Publicity Officer.

Finally, if you’re sick of Cambridge, why not hit London for LSE Finance Society’s Leaders Global Network Workshop?
