Kicking off semester 2 with MSO’s bi-annual Welcoming Reception, it’s theme was ‘Jom Main!’ or ‘Let’s Play!’. The event focused on games to play with all its attendees. Variations of Family Feud, Batu Seremban Hopscotch, and Cup Flipping included a fun Malaysian twist. The food catered from Ming’s Pantry was also served in a ‘nasi campur’ manner, which really gave that extra taste of home. Compared to 2019’s first Welcoming Reception, the committee provided the games as means to evoke teamwork and engage with everyone present. It was great to see so many new and current MSO members attend – in fact, the attendance was much more than anticipated! This briefly threw our MSO committee off-guard, because food was running low. However, we were able to quickly counter it by ordering pizza. As the event relied on the committee’s full attention and instruction – particularly for the games, the energy was quite demanding for us. Nonetheless, the event went smoothly and it was pleasing to hear that many attendees had as much fun as the committee!
