School of Mathematical Science's Interaction Night

Last night was our Interaction Night where all the undergrads from School of Mathematical Science (other uni called it Faculty, we called it School...called us unique) gathered around and talked and have fun. It was also the place where the freshmen would get their direct seniors which hopefully, could help them cope with their new lives.

The event was supposed to start at 7pm, but being Malaysian, it only began when it's almost 8pm. After some short speeches by all the VIPs, the event moved on to chit-chat session where people started to mingle around and interacted with each other. What I can notice at this session was that all the races don't really mix with each other. The Chinese have their own gangs, the Malays sat among themselves in a corner, there's barely any Indians at all. Rather sad, watching the un-unity among us. We are more in terms with our races rather than nationality. We are Malaysians!

Anyway, after that session, it's game time, which I did not have a chance to take part in as I was dragged out by someone as a punching bag. Ended up bruised and wounded. Haha. But I did get to see when KC got the whole game session in a mess and as a punishment, he was to do pole-dancing with the mic stand as a pole. Wonder if he knew what is pole dancing for what he did was more like a mix of martial art with silly dance. XD

After that, nothing much had happened except for the juniors to get their direct seniors' contacts. Met some juniors and one of them was a banana, like me, though more severe kind as in he was totally doesn't understand Mandarin and barely speak Cantonese and Hokkien. The only dielect he knew was Hainanese which is of rare commodity here. He has my sympathy here. I still remembered the time where I was in a state of culture shock with the air around me heavy with Mandarin and I was rather quiet due to my weak Mandarin but as time went by, I began to be more like my usual self and talked more and more. Screw my broken Mandarin, as long as people understand it, that's fine by me. I do hope he survived it.

Photos will be uploaded once I got hold of it. Took me ages just to upload these two. Will try again later.

Interaction night sounded fun! besides you getting punched and the cliques that formed...but in the U.S. it's kinda like that too, we may mix more and talk more to others of diff ethnicities, but who we hang out with is usually our own race. *waiting for pics* =D
