Dinner with Former High Committee of UKMDENSTA

 An annual dinner between the current High Committee of UKMDENSTA and the former one was held last two weeks on Friday night at Al-Rawsha, Bulatan Kg. Pandan plus was also attended by UKMDENSTA's Advisor, Dr. Atika Ashar.

Starting at 8 pm and ending about 11pm, it was a fun night accompanied with good food and good company. :)

The dinner begins with a quick prayer led by UKMDENSTA's president, Wan Muhammad Nazrul Fitri. Everyone had a quite heavy meal that night with delicious Arabic dishes like Chicken with Mandy Rice, Shawarma, Khabsa Rice and also Kebab plus many more. The smell still lingers as I remember the richness of the flavours of the Mandy Rice.

This might look 'biasa-biasa', but i tell you it was quite 'luar biasa'. :'D

This Arabian Kebab is to die for!

Chicken Shawarma (i sense a bit of drooling my dear readers.)

Kabsa Rice with Chicken looking delicious and it was!
Okay, I have a confession to make.

These photos - I Google-d all of them.
Just to give yalls some hint of what we ate that night, lol.

I'm not promoting the restaurant that we went, but eventhough all the meals in the menu are quite pricey, the portions of the meals are SO big that if you are a small-eater, you should share your meal with another person. I myself can barely finish my meal that night, and that's saying something because I usually eat a lot! I guess what I'm trying to say is eventhough the price is a bit on the expensive side, it is worth it.

Moving on!

After all of us finished our meals, each one of us gave a bit of speech, thanking a few people, and also promised a few things like promising to fulfill our responsibilities of being a high committee and not getting in the way of our studies.

After everyone has spoken, it was Dr Atika's turn to gave a few words which are of useful and motherly advices for us. The night ended with former NYDP II, Azza Syafiqah as the representative of former High Committee of UKMDENSTA presented with a token in the form of Duck Scarf(!) to Dr. Atika Ashar.

After the bills was paid, thanks a lot to Dr. Atika for paying for all of us of a total 30 homo sapiens!

Before everyone went home, a photo session was held at the restaurant's lobby.

Hello people!

Last 21st October (Saturday) was the last event (and also the most fun part of BJES!) for Bulan Jalinan Erat Siswa (BJES) 2017 which is - *DRUMROLL* - DENSPORT!!!

Densport comprises of a number of sports game between all batches Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5 which are Futsal, Netball, Volleyball and also Tug of War!
This event was merrily and joyfully held at Kolej Tun Syed Nasir UKM starting in the early morning breeze or precisely at 8 am.

As usual, the day starts with a bit of warm-up exercise led by our own first-year Romeos!

To the left, to the left XD

Heard a lot of twigs breaking kinda sound during this routine.

Afterwards, the game started without any delay!

The first game to start was Volleyball and Netball.

Post-serve, the player seems to be waving goodbye to the ball.

At the other part of the KTSN court, a quite intense match of netball was happening.

Looks like the ball is going into the net!

Catching the ball before others get to catch it.

Futsal starts as soon as Volleyball and Netball ends!
Our Futsal match was also joined by a few of our FGG Staff Members.

And last but not least, the last game that everyone was waiting for - Tug Of War!!

Tug Of War is the most fun because it doesn't require any skills, or any experience of playing, all you need is your arms to pull the rope as hard as you can and your feet to stand your ground, thus making this game the easiest game and anyone can join in!

 Another must-watch moments of Tug of War - 4th Year vs 3rd Year.

It was about 2 o'clock when Densport reached its end.

The overall champion for Densport 2017 was 4th Year Batch!
The first runner-up place went to the 1st Year.
And second runner-up went to 3rd Year!

Consolation prizes were both given to Year 5 and Year 2. :)

Special thanks to UKMDENSTA's advisor, Dr. Atika Ashar for always being there for all of us!

That's all for this post, till the next entry!

Bulan Jalinan Erat Siswa - Team Building

Hello again readers!

Here's a little intro about Bulan Jalinan Erat Siswa (BJES).

BJES is an annual program organized by UKMDENSTA which usually lasts about 1 month and its aim is for the first years student to bond with each other and also with the seniors. During this 1 month period, there will be lots activities which includes Batch Meeting between the first years and all the seniors, Team Building (a half-day activitiy) and Densport (a 1-day activity involving all dental students) which marks the end of our 1 month program.

Team Building was held this morning till noon at the KTSN Volleyball Court and boy, wasn't it fun!
Starting at 7.45 am with a little bit of warm-up exercise and and lots of fun games! But of course, it's not all fun, we made sure to instill some educational games as well! The 1st year students were divided into four groups namely Group Incisor, Group Canine, Group Premolar and Group Molar.

I think i'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story. :)

The morning starts with a warm-up exercise and a little bit of stretching.

Stretching exercises led by our own 1st year students.

The girls looking cheerful in the early morning :'D

Our UKMDENSTA Vice President, Muhd Khizreen Rothman joining the warm-up exercise, also spotted other MT DENSTA members.

Afterwards, 4 teams were formed - Team Incisor, Canine, Premolar and Molar.

Cheers by the wonderful Team Incisor!

 Ca-canine Ca-ca canine canine :D
                                                           Cheers by Group Premolar!

                                                       When  I say Molar, you say 'HEY!'  ^_^

Dodgeball started with Team Incisor vs Team Premolar & Team Canine vs Team Molar.
Proceeding to the finals for the dodgeball game was the Team Premolar vs Team Molar with the result of Team Molar being the dodgeball champion!

                                                   A bit of dodgeball action by our 1st years!

                                             MT UKMDENSTA joining in for a bit of fun! :D

The next game was a series of minigames called 'Sukaneka Berantai' - which comprises of The Flour Game (searching for candies in a bowl of flour by blowing the flour off), The Water Station (filling a bottle with 4 litres of water), and lastly the Water Balloon (each team will use two piece of clothes to throw water balloons to each other). The team that ends the course first wins! Now, before you start judging the game by its name, have a look at our clips below!
Using a 5 litres and a 3 litres container, the students must measure 4 litres of water. After that, the 4 litres of water is filled into a bottle using a sponge.

                               Team Premolar leading on from other teams in The Water Balloon Game!

The third game - The Guardians of The Kingdom, each team will have have both of their leaders' ankle tied with a balloon. The opposing team members will try to pop the leader's balloon. The team that defends their balloon the longest time wins!

         The one with the balloon have to be alert and quick to avoid their balloon from getting popped! :D

The last game was also a series of minigames - The Chosen One. The Chosen One also consists of three minigames, All in One A4 (All team members have to fit in one A4 paper), Dental Deaf Man (one of the team members will put on an earphone (the deaf man) & other team members will be given a question to answer. After getting the answer, they have to try to get the deafman to say the answer) and lastly, Dental Osce!

Attempt to fit all the team members in an A4 paper! :'D

The Deaf Man trying to figure out the answer. The answer must be said out in full name of the tooth.

The team has to figure out the name of the tooth, and answer the question together!

It was about 12 pm when the event reached to its end.
The overall champion went to Team Premolar, followed by Team Molar. Third place went to Team Incisor and the Incisor team at the last place.

Overall Champion - Team Premolar!
Team Molar at the 2nd place.

Incisor team at the third place!
4th place - Team Canine

 Regardless either you win or lose, the important thing is what we achieve today. Team building activities are not all fun and games, but also to get to know each other better, communicate with each other and also to improve productivity and motivation of our dental students.

So, that's all for this entry, stay tune for the last event of Bulan Jalinan Erat Siswa 2017 - Densport, which will be held on next Saturday!

Happy weekend and good day!
