Aaaaaannddddd, THAT'S A WRAP GUYS! Congratulations to those who brought home Gold, Silver and Bronze. For those who didn't, we hope you brought home valuable experience and more importantly, new friends! Rest assure, all of you would have a bid on the medals again next year! Not to forget, a big thank you to all of you who took off time in their individual busy schedule to come over to Warwick and join us in our first ever SEA GAMES. I hope all of you have as much fun as we had organising and carrying this event out. If you did enjoy this game, we would really appreciate it if you would also lend us support for the next bigger and better SEA Games next year!
The musical had 15 self-composed songs, contemporary dance, Indian dance, Zapin, and a Dikir Barat. This event is a collective work of almost a hundred cast and crew members with preparations starting almost nine months ago. At the start of Term 1, directors for each department (Acting, Music, Backstage, Dikir Barat, dances) as well as the main cast for the musical was selected. Practices commence at least once a week and escalating up to thrice a week as the performance day approaches. Frequent director meetings and rehearsals were carried out in order to perfect the event. The event was sold out at approximately 470 tickets sold (£8 for group purchases/through MSA, £9 for purchases fewer than 10 through the Arts Centre). Food was sold before the event. Audience from various parts of the United Kingdom attended the event with Malaysians being the majority. Overall the event was a success with many positive feedbacks from the audience and sponsors. Videos of the performance will be uploaded to the Warwick MSA YouTube page as soon as possible. Last but not least, many thanks to the various people involved directly or indirectly in the event, your contributions are appreciated and valued.
Warwick MSA wishes every one of you a very happy Chinese New Year! The reunion dinner was truly splendid despite being away from home because home is where the heart is! It was a night of laughter and good karaoke session. We sincerely thank everyone who joined us with the dinner and made this year's Chinese New Year memorable.
Congratulations to 'Kartoffein' and '4 minus 1' for coming first and second respectively in the Amazing Race Family Challenge. Also, thank you to all families who participated in this event. It is truly amazing to see each of you having fun together as a family.
Following last academic year's theatre trip to watch Wicked, this year, MSA brings fellow members to watch the award-winning musical: The Lion King. The bus reached London in the afternoon and everyone explored around London before gathering at the Lyceum Theatre for the masterpiece play in the evening.
Warwick MSA headed for the snowy andpicturesque French town of La Plagne, France. Located at an altitude of 3250m, La Plagne boasts around 100 km2 of ski area spread across four communes (Aime, Bellentre, Champagny-en-Vanoise and Mâcot-la-Plagne.) To deem it as picturesque would be an understatement.
Throughout the trip, we feasted (steaks, mussels, meringue, hearty stew and more!), skied our hearts out, karaoke-d albeit being tone deaf, danced in the underground bar. Journeys are truly made by the people you travel with. Till the next ski trip together!"
As it marks the end of term 1, Warwick MSA organised this Christmas Dinner to allow members to dine and celebrate Christmas together. We had some icebreaker session and played a few games before ending the night with the surprise appearance of Santa Claus!
As a festivity for Deepavali, Warwick MSA organised this social to allow everyone to enjoy the festival of light together as a family. The event mainly consisted of authentic Indian food, Indian performances - by Indian Music Ensemble and Bollywood Dance - and Bollywood movie screening. We also provided free henna hand painting to people who are interested. It was indeed a night of bliss!
Halloween Ghostbusters is the event to allow you to experience Halloween within the warmth of home. The event was started off with some station games in which you will have to play well to earn yourself some candies treats. Alongside, there will be clues in each station for you to sort out who is the ghost and where to catch it, acquiring the title of ghostbusters. The losing teams were punished to drink some non-alcoholic disgusting drinks. There was also a photo booth with props prepared for photo lovers and movie screenings of the "Babadook" for horror movie fans.
As a preparation for the winter weather, MSA organised a shopping trip to Cheshire Oaks, the biggest Factory Outlet Store in the UK! Freshers are encouraged to purchase their winter clothes there as the offer prices are very reasonable! There is a 10% discount card provided by the Malaysian Student Association and they have student discount offers as well! Even if it is not for winter clothing, Cheshire Oaks would definitely be a shopping heaven where you would not want to miss it.
