Pre-AGM x Mooncake Festival!

Apa Khabar?

This year we combined Mooncake Festival and Pre-AGM! For Pre-AGM, it is for members to come in and ask the committee any questions they have about working as the UMSA Committee! But we also know that members want to celebrate Mooncake Festival too! So we had a menu for our mooncakes!


The event started off with a lantern-making session with Manbu & Hazel, our social officers. Members were taught how to make an easy lantern and they needed to design/decorate it however they want! We had some really awesome looking lanterns, thank you guys for being awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

Shortly after that, it was makan time!!! Members queued up for their mooncakes and some snacks and we were glad to see happy faces! Although the event was short, it was nice to have our members come along and just spend a chill night with us. We hope that you enjoyed the event and we’ll see you at our next event!



Let’s Make Curry Puffs!

Apa Khabar?

This time, UMSA decided to teach our members how to make curry puffs! Prior to the event, the committee members themselves had to learn how to make them. So hopefully the committee members are at least somewhat okay with teaching our members ๐Ÿ˜›

Members were provided with all the ingredients and the utensils required, such as the flour, butter, oil, filling for the curry puff and etc. Since some members are vegetarians, we made some vegetarian curry puffs!!

Here is Fatin, our instructor for the night!

Here are some of our members making their little curry puffs, good job guys!ย

Hopefully everyone had a great night making and eating curry puffs! Thank you for coming and see you at the next event.



Merdeka Potluck Night!

Apa Khabar?

After 2 weeks of planning, our junior committee planned out the year’s Merdeka Potluck night. As always, the junior committee usually shadows the existing committee to experience what working under UMSA is like. But due to the large amount of junior committee this year, they were split into two teams. Team A was in charge with the Merdeka Potluck event and Team B was responsible for the Social Sports event. Thank you to all of our hardworking and wonderful junior committee and applicants ๐Ÿ™‚

Here we see our wonderful junior committee working on our beautiful looking backdrop!

So the event started off with a little quiz to test our general knowledge on Malaysia. Members were split into groups and had an assigned table where they had to write down their answer on a sheet of paper. Then, they had to throw it into the bucket in the middle, if they miss then they can try again until it gets into the bucket. But once time is up and they do not get their answer in, then they do not get any points for that round.


Very serious players….ย 

Our members getting their dinners ๐Ÿ™‚

Since it was a potluck, people were more than welcomed to bring some of their cooking. There were fried chicken, curry mee, chicken mac n cheese, Korean fried chicken, Matcha cake, pizza, fried rice and so on. We want to thank our lovely members and committee for chipping in the time and effort to cook their delicious dishes!

Towards the end of the night, our execs have been secretly tasting all the dishes and trying to figure out which is the best dish. Sneaky sneaky!
