Gain Programme 2
A hidden Gem or Germ? As mysterious as it sounds, Gain had launched their second mega activity on the 19th March 2016, a forum entitled ‘A Hidden Gem or Germ?’ which talked about the social media use among university students in this generation.
The forum was successfully officiated by Dr. Mohd Hanif Zulfakar. Three well-known panels invited to join the forum were Mursyidul Ilman also known as Mr. The All Shared, Heliza Helmi as well as Aiman Banna ! It was definitely a wonderful opportunity to see this three panels gathered together to share their views on the usage of social media. The forum attracted a huge crowd to attend and there were even outsiders who came to join!
In short, we can summarize the forum as good times with great people with an awesome experience! We shall be looking forward to it again next year !
26 MARCH 2016- The last sub-program of GAIn, Program Khidmat Masyarakat was held where 27 participants and the lecturer-in-incharge, Dr. Chua Eng Wee went for a visit to an old folks home, Rumah Penjagaan Warga Tua Sri Tanjung in Kuang, Selangor.
When we arrived at the old folks home, the senior citizens were sitting in the porch and the caretaker of the home welcomed us with opened arms. Later, the caretaker gave a brief introduction about the home and showed us around before we had our ice breaking session. The most heartwarming part during the visit was getting to interact with citizens of old folk’s home as they shared a lot of their old stories with us.
Then, we also had some performances to entertain the senior citizens. We sang some evergreen songs to them and ‘Cek Mek Molek’ was their favourite as they asked us to sing it twice. Those smiles on their face truly made our day. It was a memorable and ecstatic trip as we had gained a whole new experience from this program. Do join us next year as there is no exercise better for heart than reaching down and lifting people up!
