Before I arrive in Malaysia, I could feel the welcome given by the UKM AIESECers, from the greetings by Pei Ling and the useful preparation booklet by Ben. When I arrived , the constant concern from them for me warmed my heart, still remember the 1st day Jarod showed me around the beautiful campus though he got many classes then, still remember when something goes wrong with my room it was Charlene that shared her new dorm for my 1st night; still remember Jing Wen, even as the LCP who has lots of stuff to deal with everyday, yet invited me to attend AMAN which became one of the sweetest memories in Malaysia, still remember Derek and Vincent were so kind to drive me to the AMAN place and Kajang ,and of course there are so many other sweet AIESECers that I could not name one by one, it is them that make me feel AIESEC UKM was like my 2nd home here.
The 1st day I joined the financial training from the Finance director together with the Finance and Marketing department members, it was so cool to get the professional Finance knowledge here. The second day, through the conversation with Jing Wen, I got a general idea of the LC here and later I joined the OC meeting and later got a training from Ameen on Flash which was really impressive. Although there seems to be a big challenge facing in front of us for finding sponsor, however I do enjoy the AIESECers’s passion and hardworking, so guys from TRP, I really cannot help waiting to work with you !
Well I am so glad to live in such beautiful garden-UKM, the accommodation is quite cool, with a quite thoughtful Chinese roommate; the food here is a collection of Malay, Chinese and India, quite diversified and yummy; and the school transportation is quite convenient with several buses taking us either to the center of campus or KTM, so the life here seems pretty cool, don’t need to worry too much on it .
So for the first 4 days of my ceedership, though facing some culture shock, I do enjoy the people, the work and the life here.
