20th October 2013

What’s up, buttercup? I hope everyone’s had a good first week/is not dying from Freshers flu. But worry not! Regardless of how your week’s gone, it is now immediately better because look! A swanky CUMaSKini! (yay)

So first off, Nottingham Games sign-up sheets are up! Come join us in throwing the beat down (or frisbees if that’s more your thing) as we battle it out at this year’s Games. Oh, and remember to pay for your bus ride if you’ve signed up.

We’re also subsidising CUMaS entry at ABACUS’ Funkyard clubbing event this Tuesday, the best Oriental club night in town with all the other major Asian societies, so get excited!

MNight Auditions are also kicking off  next week. Whether you’re looking to act or dance, or just chill out as a tree, your Ents Officer has a message for you down below.

We’re also looking for volunteers (who eat for FREE by the way *wink wink* *subtle hint*) for our Malaysian Food Feast (MFF) next month!

Before that though, Teach For Malaysia will be visiting us next week to speak to fellow Malaysians (hey, that’s you!) about changing education inequalities back home.  More details below!

Lastly, the Cambridge University Chinese New Year Trust (CUCNY) will also be holding its Annual Charity Run next week.

Let’s have a good Michaelmas everybody!


Yang masih sihat,

10th October 2013

Hello my lovelies! Following a long painful summer of not hearing from me (I know, it was tough on me too), your favourite Malaysian newsletter is BACK.

We hope all of you have had a great summer, whether you spent it interning, pigging out on Malaysian food or just watching every episode of Breaking Bad.

To all our new bright-eyed freshers, welcome to Cambridge: where the Queen keeps drowning in your wine (so rude), your mail occupies the holes of pigeons, and your spirit animal is a bike. Not to mention our slick wizard robes/gowns.

To our less new but fresh-as-ever returning students (we’re talking Will Smith fresh), welcome back!

Guns-blazing, bike-riding, and hands in the air (don’t do this at home, kids), we’re kicking off this Michaelmas with some great events.

First off, head down to Jesus Green this Sunday for our Fresher’s Squash to meet the rest of the CUMaS family; freshers, seniors, maybe even a few dinosaurs? With food, games and majestic ancient reptiles, what more could you ask for? Also, fast approaching, next week’s Fresher’s Michaelmas Formal is another thing not to miss, with Nottingham Games also coming up in just under a month. Check below for the event details!

In addition, if you’re interested in making a significant impact on Malaysia while working with some of the most inspiring people around, check out the ICMS Cambridge Roadshow as the International Council of Malaysian Scholars and Associates visit Cambridge next Saturday. Also, if you’re interested in trading (no, not pokemon cards), our partner the Cambridge University Securities Trading Club has a message for you just below.

Lastly, if any of you are interested in taking part in a cross-cultural study of well-being in Malaysia, Daniel and Dr. Margaret Kern from the University of Pennsylvania are looking for volunteers, details below!
