Yes people, especially sudents of UTAR Kampar Campus, today at 10am there will be a memorial service at Heritage Hall for the 3 students who got drowned at the Batu Berangkai Waterfall on 1st Nov 2009. This event is organised by UTAR Kampar Student Representative Council. Try to make it although you may not know them personally.
Im not going lah. Lazy to cycle u noe? U noe how tiring is it r? Im not that lucky can sneek in with my bike. plus I have to Journalism Course Gathering at the same place at 3pm later. Takkan nak cycle pi uni den balik den pi uni lagi? tired la.
Plus I went to the memorial service already last week by the friends of the 3 victims. So oklo. How many memorials we must attend la for the same person? Im sure if I go, I’ll sure take pics, then ppl will ask from me.
I better not waste time n stay at home to study. =p I cannot study in uni. I need to fotostate the Moral notes la. tomorrow morning got midterm n I haven’t started revision yet. My clothes are waiting for me to put them into washing machine la. and my floor is calling me desperately to sweep them.
So im NOT going la..
Anyway, finally I see some event organised by SRC. indeed this is the first one since the election last June. Ok perhaps they have been ‘fighting’ for the students but this is the first tangible thing that they make.
I really wonder why is it so slow for them to organised an event. If Journalism, news must be newsworthy, must have timeliness and urgency. Why after 11 days since the tragedy only they come up with this memorial service? Why the 3 victims friends can organised a huge memorial service for them on 2nd Nov, just one day after the tragedy and SRC can’t?
Why the reaction from SRC is so fucking damn slow? Isn’t the job of SRC to do come up with something that has to do with the students?? Im also curious that why they come up with the memorial service for this 3 dead students. What was SRC doing when other students having difficulties with their parents who passed away, who can’t pay their studies fees, and so on. I never see SRC collect money for any disasters’ victims. None!
SRC didn’t even announce it in the student portal. They announced it in Facebook. Wat the heck? Be official sikit can r? SRC is a university’s students council ok? It’s legal punya. How can they do things like this? So cincai! Buat malu je satu badan pelajar buat pengumuman macam ni! Kalau nak bagi alasan tak cukup masa n last minute, memang tak boleh diterima. Segala aktiviti perlu dirancang dengan teliti. The students elect you people to do things. So do it the right way!
They are 2 groups of people that set up the event in Facebook n inviting people to attend the memorial. The first invitation comes from ‘Utar Kampar’ with the title of the event: Official Utar Memorial Service for Waterfall Victims. This group did a good job. They post a photo of flowers as the profile pic. they also wrote the details of the event: date, time, venue and description.
The second invitation is from the Chairman of UTAR SRC, Edward Chin Yik Shearn with the title: Memorial Service in UTAR KAMPAR campus. Seriously im disappointed with this invitation. No photos on the page, no description what the event is all about. They oni posted up date, time n vanue.
Now they even call the event as official one? Why so? Because it’s from the university? Entahla apa motif with the word ‘official’. Ada orang hentam SRC sebab tak buat kerja ke? Ataupun dihentam sebab tak memperjuang dan menjaga kebajikan pelajar UTAR? Ataupun sebab SRC terkena api sendiri tak puas hati tengok kawan-kawan 2 mangsa tu boleh buat memorial yang dihadiri oleh ribuan orang?
Im not making any allegations ok? U think yourself la.
IM FED UP OF UTAR KAMPAR SRC.
Yes I really do. Come find me if you are not satisfy with what I said.
i talk about facts and only facts!
