Held in conjunction with International Medical University‘s 15th anniversary celebrations, my uni had came out with an event of the year.. The Charity Run cum Carnival! This event with the aim to raise RM50,000 to aid 3 beneficiaries:
1. St. Jerome children’s home
2. Rumah Shalom children’s home
3. Kampung Orang Asli Serendah
The IMU Carnival was from 8am onwards and all the way till 4 pm. With performances by Dina (Malaysian Idol runner-up) and other local bands, a food fair with lots of scrumptious food, haunted house, kids’ corner and games galore… this social occasion was a happening one!
Needless to say… let me show you some of the visual attractions!
I was late for the fashion show paraded by my course mates… so I’ve curi-ed the pics from Hui Yin!
Let’s take a stroll outdoor and see what stalls did my IMU friends, lecturers and staffs have set up!
One of the relish food available. The Maggi Pizza!! Have not had those.. have not even heard of it! 1 for RM1.50 🙂 Tasty… with the mayonnaise and chili sauce topping!
Was walking and taking pictures… until I saw the cupcakes! An appealing and sweetness underlying them… RM2 for 1. Bought the chocolate cupcake instead of vanilla as Chris requested 🙂 It lay beautifully until the time to taste has come… Oh dear! Toooo Sweeeet! Chris claimed.. I was reluctant even to take a bite then. Love the sweet sensations of cupcakes but that was just too much!
We caught up with our Dean of Pharmacy School and took a picture with him.. Not used to seeing him wearing a sporty and casual attire as he’s always equipped smartly in his suit!
It was kinda fun and peculiar witnessing our dear lecturers cook especially! Mr. Mudassir was conducting a workshop for one of his Pakistan dish : the Gulab Jamuan.
As for my tutor, Dr Ignacio, he carried out and showed of his culinary skills really well. One of his specialty : the Torttila de Pattata. (em.. did I spell it right?) Guessed it’s one of his Spanish dish. The aroma exerted almost filled up the entire cafeteria! Didn’t try though.. Really afraid that my sorethroat will relapse as I’ve just recovered. So, precautions.. precautions 😛
There were lots of other food available.. but I didn’t manage to take them all.. as I was going to wait in the atrium….
Waiting for the performance that I’ve anticipated… violin performance by dear Carolyn! What a show! Such a gifted person with a graceful elaboration of music!
The event was a successful one, attracting people from the public as well, including the young and old! Everyone had mingled! Guessed the authorities and committees have reached the aim and target that they desired to… Enable people to have fun and at the same time.. contribute to the society!
Enjoyed myself of course!
