There were two parts to the event. The first consisting of the food stalls being set up all around the outer rim of the Main Hall. There were various vendors which brought with them a unique taste to the normal MMU day. Representatives from the Inside Scoop ( we do love our ice-cream! ) and Migo Rice Balls were laid out amongst fruit stalls, one sushi stall, and even a fried squid stall!
The second portion to the event commenced only around 8pm that same evening. Students piled into Main Hall as the event started and were given goodies along with an itinerary on the night’s activities.
The event started off as any event would; with a welcoming speech by the event director, Mr. Foong Shao Yong, followed by one from the Advisor of Business Society, Dr. Tan Pei Kian. The event continued with the opening ceremony - a unique one, at that. The VIPs were invited on stage to put the numbers, 2,0,1, and 5 unto a makeshift wall which later opened up to signify that the event had officially commenced!
The audience was received by the Dynamix Dancing crew with a breath-taking dance performance. It was a wonder to see the way they twisted and turned and looked, by the end, to not even have broken a bead of sweat. This was followed with another dance performance, one less contemporary, but equally as good.
The Christian Fellowship performance was next, an original rendition of a popular song from the movie Pitch Perfect left the audience satisfied with their near perfect pitches. After that, the Lucky Draws took place. Lucky members from the audience won thumb drives, among other goodies.
The night continued with various performances. There was a magic show hosted by the ever talented Mr. Ethan Pnwee Jun Ee. He just seemed like he could never be tied up, despite several attempts to do so from the event director. What was impressive though, was the prediction he made with random audience members in deciphering his ‘dream’.
Who could forget the Chinese Yo-yo performance, where the audience witnessed performers throw not one, but two Chinese yo-yos in the air, only to catch them in perfect rhythm. Then, of course, there was a beat-boxing performance by MMU’s own Syam. The audience could’ve sworn he was hiding an ice-cream truck and fire truck in his throat. If he wasn’t, we would’ve been fooled. Then the live band filled the hall with the spirit of cheer in their melodies.
The charismatic emcees made the event fun for all as well. Lucky members of the audience were invited on stage to participate in a game commonly known as ‘Telefon Karat’. Of course, one of the emcees joined them to spice up the situation.
The event concluded by 11pm, leaving audience and committees alike free to appreciate the incredibly well-done decorations that littered the hall. From Santas of cardboard to an actual Santa, complete with reindeers, it was truly a selfie wonderland.
