Some of you might already know the results... But I don't. Still waiting for the list from Man! O_o Should be up sometime tomorrow...

A message to the new excos and candidates:

Zack has expressed his deep regret that lots of the candidates turned down their appointments. Personally, I don't see what's keeping you guys from holding a position. A heavy workload? We all face that. Just do your best and have faith in yourselves. We do.

The recently ended poll showed that SCIENCESS members want more educational trips and competitions, followed by religious programmes and educational talks. So think up of more activities geared that-a-way, fellas.

In the meantime, 'Id Sa'id Wa Mubarak, and enjoy your holiday!

We finally have it! =D Ladies and gentlemen, the new SCIENCESS executive committee for term 2008/2009:

Vote for a New... Government?

It's Nuzul Al-Qur`an today! =D You can't vote for a new government, but you can vote for the new SCIENCESS excos tomorrow. Biotech and biomed students can see the list of nominees pasted on the door of WacKOS. Voting's also carried out there. CTSians should proceed to the CTS Lounge. I'll try to get the list up here by tomorrow. Choose wisely =]

Professional Career Week 2008

The Professional Career Week, launched on Monday, is the hottest event at KOS right now. The exhibition at the Lobby's running till this Friday, 5 P.M. Not much there, but have a look around, there's at least a few interesting facts you've never known. The career-cum-personality test ended yesterday, so too bad if you missed it. But you can still go to STAD at KOM to take the test. The place is just adjacent to Brother Danial's office. A career talk will be held at the Main Auditorium this Saturday. It's highly recommended if you're unclear about what you want to do after your degree. I'm really looking forward to the mock interview, grooming class, and "starting a business" bit, but I don't have the details right now. Tell you what, go ask the committee hanging around at the Lobby. They'd love to tell you about their programme =)

Iftar Jama'i

With these kinds of events, it's always fashionable to be late. Which is why I arrived at just before 7 P.M. Not that it was intentional. I wanted to come early. Its just that I had to wait for a certain someone to take a bath and finish his 10-minute karaoke session in the shower. Anyway, people were still queuing up to get their replacement tickets when I got there. I could see Bad at the ticket counter looking flustered. I actually haven't paid but had written my name on the list, and I didn't have a coupon. So I waited for the rest of the biotech third-years, one of whom was holding my coupon. When they turned up, I was told someone had already paid for my behalf. What a nice surprise it was! =D Jazakallah to that kind soul.

This year's Iftar Jama'i was just as good as last year's. Though I can't say much about the early evening's itinerary (I was told there was a talk by Dr. Ibrahim Shogar and a video show), the food was amazing for the RM 3 fare. We had nasi beriyani, rendang ayam, and acar. There was one other kuah, but I can't remember what it was... They limited the number of participants to just 22 people for each class, which is too bad because WacKOS could've accommodated more people if they'd just moved more tables aside.

When everyone had taken their seats on the woven plastic mats, and the Azan was called, we recited our Du'a` and broke fast with the Tamr provided. There was also a kuih which I didn't know the name of... Or was it just agar-agar? Some didn't waste any time in digging into the delicious nasi beriyani. For a few very long minutes, everyone ate in silence, savouring the food they dreamed of so much in the day, fearing a 3 Ringgit misspent.

After wolfing down the food and guzzling down the orange juice, we prayed Maghrib (some in the Musolla and some in WacKOS) together. It was kinda uncoordinated (notice that always happens?). We should've all prayed in WacKOS, but some people took their time, so one thing led t another... Anyway, I always love these get-togethers cause you get to get to know new faces and mingle with crowds you're unfamiliar with. Iftar Jama'i is something I look forward to every year. I guess everyone does, judging from the attendance. Hope it gets better and better in the following years =)

I never got down to it, so here it is:

On behalf on SCIENCESS, Ramadhan Mubarak to everyone!

P.S. To the organising comittee: Great job! =D Just hope you can accommodate more people next year. Nice thought providing us with tissues. Can't live without them -_-

P.P.S. Don't forget about the talk on how to Celebrate Aidilfitri According to Sunnah next Monday, 9:45 P.M. at Sisters' CF!

Annual Grand Meeting

It's almost the end of the current excos' tenures, and it's time to choose new faces to lead us. These are the people who will decide on what programmes we'll be having. They are the mascots of SCIENCESS. The forms have been distributed. You've filled them and sent them in. Let's all pray we've made the right decision in choosing our future leaders. The AGM will be held on 22 September 2008. Stay tuned for more updates.

Annual Grand Dinner

17 October 2008. Not a good day. I'll be off to Pulau Perhentian for the 3-day Perhentian Island Challenge 2008. Man, this leaves me wishing I could create kage bunshins... I want to eat nice stuff at a hotel and camwhore to the middle of the night. But I also want to run around, sweat profusely, swim all day, and enjoy the beach. What do I do? Anyway, someone will have to cover the event, and I have just the right person in mind... If you haven't registered for the AGD, there's still at least one spot left (mine, that is), so contact Duang (017-9702096). I'm not going =/

Ramadhan 1429 H

"It's that time of the year, Ramadhan is here~!"

It's one week late, but here's to a blessed and happy Ramadhan to everyone at SCIENCESS =)

The Islamic Affairs Bureau (IAB), spearheaded by Yusuf, has teamed up with all the other societies in IIUM Kuantan to bring us Ihya` Ramadhan, a special month-long programme to enliven this holy month. So let's join the festivities (for our own sake). IAB's line-up of events are as follows:

1) Iftar Jama'i

Date: 10 September 2008 (Wednesday)
Time: 6:30 P.M.
Venue: WacKOS
Payment: RM 3

Only 11 guys and 11 girls from each batch can attend, so do fill in the forms quickly. They should've already been circulated in class by today. There's gonna be a talk by Dr. Ibrahim Shogar and a video show shortly before Iftar. And after 'Isha` and Tarawikh, there's gonna be more (pronounced moh-rei), or more food (just to make it simple).

2) Talk: Celebrate Aidilfitri According to Sunnah

Date: 22 September 2008 (Monday)
Time: 9:45 P.M.
Venue: Sisters' CF

Be there or be... Oh, just be there! -_-

New Photocopy Centre and Bookstore

This isn't exactly new development, but I just have to write something, or I'll feel bad...

Since August, the Special Task and Economy (STE) Bureau of SCIENCESS have started operating a photocopy centre at A-G-08, just in front of the Musolla. You can now photostat your notes at just 10 Sen per page without having to go to the Library or the dreaded CC with high photostat machine downtime. Hooray for SCIENCESS! =D They also have a couple of textbooks, but you don't need those now that it's the middle of the semester. Perhaps next semester when your PTPTN and JPA money gets replenished. The house is run by the STE team, but you'll see Don and Latep there most of the time. Feel free to hang out. Or help out. Better yet, sign up to be a part of the STE Bureau right now to work your arse off for them. Remember, it's Ramadhan. Double the fun, double the Hasanat! XD

P.S. It's still in development, but you can expect t-shirts for your course by the end of the semester. Now, I wonder when I'll be getting that elusive SCIENCESS jacket... It was the wrong size the last time...
