CNY Extravaganza

I've been kinda busy lately to update my blogs lately..but tonight i decided to post up some pics of whats been going on for the past few days.

I noe Valentine's day was last Thurs and its already 4 days late, but it's never too late to say Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. I was talking to M the ode day and she asked me, what is so special about this day? After all, Valentine anot, life still goes on. For ppl like me and most of my coursemates, this day was spent dating with our books and notes, (we are not that nerdy, but we have assessments on Fri), for some they may be still be struggling just so that they have 3 meals a day, or for some they are so poor that they barely have water to drink, what's more the extra money to buy flowers selling at sky high prices. I guessed Valentine's Day will be really meaningful for couples having long distance relationship, couples that seldom get to meet up due to work or geographical differences. But to put it simply, Valentine's Day is a day for couples to celebrate their love for each other and for singles like me to celebrate the joy and freedom of still being single..hehe..

Despite knowing that flowers are quite a waste of money, I still like the feeling of receiving flowers. Girls I know! :p

Well, maybe you can always opt for other flowers like sunflowers

But nowadays, more and more ppl are giving artificial roses or even soft toy and chocolates in a bouquet instead to substitute the real flowers.

Last Friday, the CCS of my uni organized our uni first CNY Extravaganza in the multi purpose hall. VIPs invited that day included Deputy Higher Education Minister, Datuk Ong Tee Keat. MCA members as well as representatives from other unis such as UPM, UM, MMU, and Uniten were also invited. Sin Chew Jit Poh journalists were present at the event as well. Basically, with a RM 3 ticket, you will be able to sit at the MPH and enjoy the performances for the whole night. With all the join effort and hardwork of members of the CCS, the event went smoothly and received many praises fr the VIPs.
