Cenfos visiting us...: The Report


Last Sunday, our campus was visited by students from CENFOS. Madam Nazira, Miss Safiyyah, Bro Nazim and Bro Nazir was there also accompanying them.

Well, they arrive an unexpectedly with one bus arriving on time and another quite late, but still they can still hear the briefing. The program began with the arrival of students and VIP's. As usual, the program preceded with opening remarks from both sides, then briefing from each department and the multimedia presentation. We also have the pleasure of listening to Bro Dzaqqe Yameen Quranic recital of Surah Luqman. He was the ex exco for IAB (Islamic Affairs Bureau).

Around 76 students (or more or less, can't remember the exact number though). Briefings, sharing moments, KOS tour and the exhibition was the more highly anticipated. I believe they want to have a look at our hostel, but we apologise, as we are limited on time.

The ramblings here is not that important, but the things sought most is the pictures. So here there are:

well, that's not all, I'll post the link to the pictures later on

GASS VIII with pictures!!!


Greetings from us, the Sciencess blog team!!

As you all have known last night, GASS VIII was held. As usual, GASS was held to welcome our new brothers and sisters embarking their journey here, in Kuantan. FYI, GASS stands for Gathering of Science Students.

To make it short, GASS began at 6 pm (it's starting to become earlier and earlier, than the previous one). The biotech students however arrived a bit late. They've got class in the evening. As usual, it began with speeches by the Dean (Prof Rizdwan) and by the Academic Advisors ( Br Supian for CTS, Dr. Md Nor (for biotech) and Sr. Zaitun (for Biomed). Dr Jesni was present also.

After Maghrib prayer, the Multimedia Show and the performance commenced. The Kompang team was there to entertain us with their familiar song. Then, the Exco's was introduced. After that, it was the lucky draw. Normally, the sisters were the lucky one with an exception of 1 brother.

Also, the Mentor Mentee program was launched. The ambassador, Br. Zulkifly Yunus, briefly introduce about the program and its aim. The seniors was given a bunch of juniors, where the seniors have to overlook and help their mentees in any way they can (more info will be given later). Later on, the seniors join in the juniors during the sharing moment session.

Roughly, the 58 new students enrolled this semester, however not all can make it.

Here are some pics:

It’s the New Year already and also you can say the beginning of the new semester even though its already the third week of the semester. SCIENCESS had new people and this blog also had a new person in charge. Anyway, that concludes the introduction.

As some of you might have known, the CTS Lounge had moved to a new area. It’s still in the same block, but different place. The old lounge become the new GPCL (General Purpose Computer Lab).

The moving took place on the 1st of January 2009. It begun at 8.30 am, where the volunteers starts to the gather at the old lounge at level 1. The stuff was packed and brought down to the ground floor near the toilet. The volunteers were split into two groups. The sisters, clean, unpacked the stuff and arrange it into the new lounge. The brothers meanwhile, with the help of Dr Samsun and Dr. Salihi, brought in the new computer desk into the old lounge. Later on, the sisters helps the brothers brought down the computer to the old lounge and set it up. Some of the sisters prepared refreshment to top-up the energy loss.

Here are some pics.....

Quite heavy aren't they?

Mmm, the first to try the new PC....

Well, the new GPCL was established. The lounge moved. All work was completed at 11.30 a.m. What do you get after letting all that sweat out ? Well, you guess its the refreshment.

Anyhow, we would like to thank all the CTS Lounge crew and other volunteers from Biotech, Biomedic and CTS. It's a hard work indeed, but it'll pay off later on. Also, come and visit the new GPCL (at the old CTS Lounge) and the new CTS Lounge(now located ground floor). There might be something useful for you.....
