UN Rock the Goals Concert: Shine a Light on Sustainability

Rock The Goals – Malaysia’s Biggest United Nations Concert was held on the 25th of September 2019 in JC Hall, Sunway University. The concert was held to raise awareness towards the achievement of the 17 United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in conjunction with the celebration of  the 4th anniversary of the 17 SDGs. Due to the haze that clouded Sunway, the venue of the event this year changes from the usual football field to indoor JC hall, but that did not reduce the excitement for our Sunway students. This yearly event has always been one of the biggest events for Sunway so this year was definitely no exception! Continue reading UN Rock the Goals Concert: Shine a Light on Sustainability

A Supernatural Resume: Which One Screams Your Name?

In a pre-scientific era, humans were majorly defined by the imaginative way they filled their gaps of understanding ⎯ the justification of insanity and death were our main targets for mystical closure, as there is no discussion more uncomfortable than the concreteness of warped reality and it’s abrupt non-existence. 

Back then, the madness of artists must be attributed to a beautiful creature with mesmerizing powers and the death of a newborn is accepted and further justified by saying they would grow up to become evil, as determined by a creature who supposedly sees the future and prevents it. 

Below are some critters that the old world believed in. The humanlike traits of each of them might lead us to identify ourselves with them, which I personally find nothing short of exciting; how could one possibly associate themselves with baby-eating, sleep-paralysis-inducing creatures? Well, read on to find out more about the supernatural and of course, to take the quiz that will reveal the monster inside you. Continue reading A Supernatural Resume: Which One Screams Your Name?

Superstitions VS Reality: What do we believe?

It’s October! The spookiest month of the year (at least, if you’re looking at it from a Westernized perspective). Here in Malaysia, Halloween isn’t that big of a thing, really. Aside from scoring tickets to Sunway Lagoon’s annual Nights of Frights and attending dress-up parties, there’s really not much of a Halloween culture here (i.e. trick or treating). But being so exposed to the Western culture of Halloween through social media, many of us know about Western superstitions like jack o’ lanterns, black cats, Friday the 13th and such. In Malaysia, we have our own unique, traditional superstitions from a background of diverse cultures, passed down from generation to generation.  Continue reading Superstitions VS Reality: What do we believe?
