Adorned with tons of black and gold decorations, from a golden star-plated red carpet walkway to a realistically lifelike figurine, the Jeffrey Cheah Hall where Sunway’s Got Talent (SGT) Season 3 was held on Tuesday night, the 9th of April 2019 was almost unrecognizable.

I’m not telling you how to live, but if you’ve never seen a live orchestra, you don’t know the true breadth and depth of human experience.
Hyperbole aside, I know orchestra viewings are not exactly cheap. Fortunately, we have our very own student-run ensemble who regularly puts on shows at a modest price. The best part? They’re skilled, passionate, and arguably as professional as any orchestra out there.
I had the pleasure of catching Sunway University Ensemble’s latest concert “Crayons”, on Saturday, the 6th of April. The theme was that there was no theme: ‘Crayons’ was about highlighting the diversity of genres in music, and every piece chosen was as unique and essential as each colour in a box of crayons.

The theme, “a collection of memories growing up”, was a whimsical and at times sombre contemplation of the past, present and future. The show featured acting, dancing, singing, shrieking (so much shrieking), and even a short silent video clip. Continue reading Once Upon A Time (Into The Future)
Valentine’s Day is a special day to commemorate the bond between lovers, celebrated on the 14th of February.

Luckily, Sunway International Student Ambassador (SISA) hosted that event the night before Valentine’s Day in Sunway University’s Art Gallery. Continue reading SISA’s Valentine’s Night
DONG Dong Dong Chiang! The good old Lion Dance has always brought about joy to the crowds and it is also believed to bring prosperity to the premises visited. This time, the lions performed daring stunts on elevated poles, the amazing dancers within leaping with grace and balancing on each other’s shoulders to expertly showcase the fluidity and strength of the lion. The dance presented the perfect opportunity for students to pray for excellence in their studies.
The Clubs, Societies and Sports Awards Ceremony was held on the 21st of November to celebrate and reward the achievements of Sunway’s many clubs.
