Thanks to everyone who came to support the event. It was a big success in terms of attendance and experience. It took the MASA execs up to 7 hours to prepare two Malaysian desserts, Bubor Chacha and Lychee agar for 100 people but it was worth it when the crowd LOVED the food. Good job!
Thanks to everyone for coming. It was great! Thanks to everyone who contributed to the “pictures crowdsourcing” request. Thanks to those who came all the way from across the river and up the river and everywhere in between.
We had a blast and we are glad we helped in some way to share our culture and for the Malaysians, we get to recreate some of the ambience you are missing from home. And thanks for the wonderful and gracious comments.
I know u have a really efficient team, but if u ever need help with any event organizing, feel free to shoot me a message.(not sure what I can be helpful but it’s free labor ) Really appreciate your effort- thanks so much! Have a great 马year.”
Tonight, I decided to support my fellow EXCO, Yee Ling for her web-based app submission (she was a semi finalist!) for 6.470. It was so cool to see all these young, bright students having such a great time honing and battling each other with their programming skills. I felt so proud of the students at MIT. Something tells me that these bright, young minds will go out to change the world for the better. I feel safe to be around them. Their energy is contagious!
Anyways, as I was unlocking my bicycle, ready to cycle home after a long day under below-freezing temperatures, I noticed that I have an email from Shien Jin, a fellow Malaysian who graduated from MIT back in ’03. I was so happy to find out that he has channeled his annual MIT donation to MITMASA! I like to thank him for his generosity and I promise that whoever runs MITMASA in the future after I have graduated, come approach me and if you show me the passion, I will show you the $$ (I’l ask Shien Jin too!). *glee*
This is a NICE and wonderful Ang Pau for MITMASA surely. Thanks again, Shien Jin.
