I was very active in socialising activities these few days.
It started with a BBQ night, organised by Malaysia Students Association on 20 Jun 08. I met a lot of Malaysian students who are studying in Warwick. I was the only PhD student (I hope I am mistaken) who attended the event. A lot of students asked me: are you Malaysian? I never met you before, are you first year student? Hahahaha, yes, I am first year student, the oldest first year student, and this is actually my 3rd first year in my university study life. Perhaps, I might have some other first years of student life in the future, after I completed my PhD.
The next day, I was invited to join Alastair's 14th birthday celebration. I joined another 9 people to play paintball in Stratford-upon-Avon. That was really fantastic! Though paintful and tired, I really enjoyed the game--shooting others and being shot. It was followed by his party. I was introduced to Ian, a friendly ICT teacher and his wife and some other guests who attended the party.
On Sunday (22 Jun 08), I joined the Green Party. It was organised by Claycroft after winning the Student Switch-off Competition. I got new friends from Drama Education. Right after the party, I met Dr Ghani, Dean of Faculty of Language, Sultan Idris Educational University. I was invited to have dinner together with a Malay family who operates B&B accommodation in Canley. Mazura and Dahlia were there as well.
Today (24 Jun 08), I visited Hampton Court Palace together with other international students. Wow! I should compensate the time by studying harder...
