First and foremost, we, from Sunway Echo Media, would like to wish every Malaysian a Happy Independence Day! For this month’s Echo Eats, we thought of taking you, our dear readers, on a trip down memory lane; reminiscing on the wide array of savoury, sweet and cooling snacks you enjoyed whilst growing up in Malaysia (hopefully, spurring you to go on a hunt for them). Without further ado, let’s begin!
Understanding the Dynamics of Relationships
Here’s a brief introduction of our main speaker, who is Miss Suraiya Nawab, the joint founder and director of the Islamic Careline and Muslim AIDS …
Moonlight seeps in through the gaps between the clouds, a welcome luminosity against the sky, dark and dreary as per usual. A chilling breeze grazes past Maria’s cheek, and she digs her nails into her palms to stop herself from shuddering, leaving little, crescent-shaped indents in them.
Fun Mathematics Camp
Mathematics has been known as the mother of all sciences as its applications are endless. Despite its importance in solving daily problems, Mathematics has not been appreciated by most students as it is a robust and challenging subject. With the goal of bringing Mathematics to the community and ignite the interest of Mathematics among young minds, Sunway’s School of Mathematical Sciences (SMS) hosted a One-Day Fun Mathematics Camp on the 8th of March for participants from age 11 to 15. However, having to consider the COVID-19 pandemic, the camp had to be postponed. Hence, the camp turned into a two-months camp where the Dean of SMS, Professor Ho Chee Kit, organized daily classes with his participants to prepare them for the grand final of the camp on the 9th of August.
Getting Your Nails Done
“-and would you like some more tea, Mr Bear? Yes, of course you would. Here you are- careful, it’s hot!”
“Will robots take my job?” A question on many people’s minds every time new advancements in technology are rolled out. On Saturday, 8th of August, an event was held over Zoom by Sunway’s Accounting and Commerce Society (ACS) on the topic of IR 4.0, or the fourth industrial revolution, and what it means for the future of accounting. The event featured a guest speaker, Mr. M.G.Ong who is a chief advisor at 6Biz, a company striving to upskill and reskill working professionals in areas like big data and analytics. Mr. Ong explained what IR 4.0 is, its significance, its different components, and finally, answered the attendees’ questions on the topic.
Independence Day Celebrations Across the World
“Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!” The echoes of our forefathers, who were vocally opposed to the treacherous prospects of a Malayan Union. The 31st of August serves as a reminder that we are no longer subjects of the British. To this day (certainly before 2020), Malaysians gather in places such as the Putra Square and their respective living rooms to commemorate national sovereignty.
