How My Day Went Today (not that it matters)

So, I received an email from Monash a week ago asking me if I would like to be a volunteer for the predeparture briefing at Monash Sunway for students going to the Australian campuses next semester. I thought why not.

And turned out, I was the only former student of Monash turned up to be the volunteer. =___="

RM2 per entry.

This is my 3rd time to Monash Sunway. Pretty awesome.

Met with two Monash staffs who did a great job preparing for the event. 

I miss this place!
 Since I was the only volunteer present, I had to speak and share my experience with the audience. I did jumble mumble a bit LOL that's embarrassing. Anyway the students were very excited to fly to Australia since they asked me lots of questions after the session ended. Things like what bank do you recommend, is it easy to get Halal food, can I bring in medicines from Malaysia, food, spices and all that. And they asked if cooking in Australia is a good way to save money. I told them YES, and not too worry if they don't know how to cook because I didn't know either. I just said you can start learning now from your parents, or just try it out yourself when you're there.

Overall, I really enjoyed it. I hope I get to to volunteer again for next year intake. I bet there will be more volunteers as it will be during the summer break.

New residence for Monash students. RM1500 per month. If you convert to AUD of course it is way cheaper than the on campus residence in Clayton campus. It is just a stone throw away from the Sunway campus.
