On 21st September 2016, I was assigned as the student press for Editorial Squad to attend the Council Initiation Ceremony organised by the Students' Representative Council (SRC) 2016/2017 in the Exam Hall, Multimedia University (MMU) Melaka Campus with the theme colour of the year, blue and white. Arriving at the venue, I was astonished to see almost all the presidents and high committees representing their clubs were aligned waiting for their turns to register. The registration counter was hectic with ushers-on-duty showing the seats and welcoming us in.
The opening ceremony started with a prayer recital by Ahmad Syakir bin Zulkifly continued with a short speech by Yu Peng Chiang , the Deputy President of SRC 2015/2016 (Melaka Campus) representing the former SRC 2015/2016 members and also welcoming everyone to the ceremony. This was followed by a speech from Teo Jia Schen, the President of SRC 2016/2017. The highlight of his speech was when he asked everyone present "Have or has anyone hated SRC before?".
Dinner was served later on and the menu of the night was Arab rice, honey lemon grilled chicken, salad, salata(yogurt), laban(tomato-chili sauce) and iced lemon tea. To further improve the ambience of the night, Alicia blew our mind with her voice alongside her bandmates, Don and Roland Williams. This was followed by four students, Sharon A Ren, Chan Heng Yeng, Christina Ong and Sui Sin Tey who drew everyone attention with their talented skills of playing musical instruments.
Arvind Arash Selvarajan, Deputy President 2016/2017 from MMU Cyberjaya Campus was then invited to the stage by the President to join in for the oath recital led by the President himself. Then, the Permata Dunia song was sung to mark the end of the ceremony.
