1st university that i ‘visit’.just went to UiTM(Universiti Institut Teknologi MARA) main campus at Shah Alam on friday.my main point coming there is that to meet my friends from matriculation n spend a buka puasa with them.not 2 mention other friends there.but i manage to keep it as a secret because i know i won’t be able to meet all of them at that short period of time…
UiTM S.Alam is a huge place,piece of land.sadly its kinda ‘padang jarak padang tekukur’ because lack of trees/greens around the place.compared to UKM Bangi,it’s so hot being there.hahaha.From UKM KL,i took the Chow Kit monorel to KL Sentral which costs me rm2.50.at KL Sentral,i waited like forever for the U80 rapid-KL bus to come.Duhhh.Penat!!selain dari U80,blh jugak naik T529.tp bukan dr KL Sentral la.there i noticed a guy from Forensic Science of my U.well i know he didn’t know me.but i known him since the orientation day..i was seated behind him.haha.i’m really a great observer.i never talked to him but i remebered his face.OK back to the story.after like 40mins,the bus came.n i was lucky to get a seat.Urghh!i don’t want to stand in that bus…i hate to be looked at…..the journey from KL Sentral to Seksyen 2 was sooo long….i slept a little.Sedar2 dah masuk Shah Alam.rase pelik sbb ak jarang sgt pegi this part of Selangor.Then i saw the big Tesco,n the Carlsberg factory,the stadiums n the MPSA tower.Shah Alam is quiet nice…So now I know i’m already at Shah Alam Bandar Anggerik.wonder why did they get the ‘Anggerik’ name for the town?huhu.
at Seksyen 2,i just stepped out from the bus because everyone was stepping out.because i didn’t know where the hell Seksyen 2 bus stop was.so i stood there calling my friends at UiTM.Diorg suruh naik bas T603 sbb tu bas yg masuk dalam kampus.tak pasti la kalau tu je yg masuk.rasanye ada lagi kot.lagipun bukan dalam UiTM tu je ade student.sekeliling UiTM tu byk lagi institut/kampus.upon entering the main gate of UiTM,1st thing that i saw is the modern Bangunan Canseleri,with all those air terjun bertingkat-tingkat.well i don’t quiet remember the name after that.beautiful.this kind of thing is not seen in UKM.not that i complain.hahaha.i never knew that UiTM is modern looking and new…maybe those in the front only.some of the buildings are rather old.i should be out from the bus at the 2nd stop in front of the dataran where they held the Bazar Ramadhan.but then i didn;t know,so i went out at the next stop.Sad.because that means that i must walk back to the 2nd stop at the hot evening,n fasting.eventually i arrived n take a rest at my friend’s room at Kolej Melati,4th floor.She’s a rather close friend of mine during matriculation.That day i bought a murtabak.Sedap!I’m actually on this survey that i conducted by myself and for myself,about which Murtabak is the best in KL.The Greenwood’s Murtabak is not to be beaten yet.hihi.
Only at night that we actually went out from the room at Kolej Delima (1) to accompany my friend to her hostel room at Melati.Only then i see the ‘main camp atmosphere’ that i would like to experience because of my small,unvariety campus,eventhough it lies in the heart of KL.i like to see people with all kinds of style,attitude,fashion sense,faces from a variety of courses.unlike my campus,UiTM main camp is a place with almost all kinds of courses available.when i say this,the ‘Kursus Seni Kasut’ must come to my mind.i mean,what??seni kasut?they teach you that?i must remind myself that it is a main campus.These things exist.Even the people at the hostel varies.the diploma sport science students are rather…err boy-like.not that i say they are all pengkid.God knows.the Music students always with their guitar,viola,violin cases.the Arts were carrying the big board to draw.the Tourism/Hotel Management students with their cooking attire.and the Medicals?they don;t look like one.well at least my friends weren’t…at night,UiTM is a place bathed with lights.especially the ‘Twin Tower’.(my bro n sis,x-students of UiTM called it like that).we took pictures here and there.mostly at the 11th floor of the Fakulti Kejuruteraan Awam n Fakulti Perubatan wing.it overlooks the opposite tower,where we can see the VC’s room on the uppermost level.not sure if the VC really there,though.nice to be standing there with the light gust of wind.The half curved shape of the tower is beautiful.
Poor quality pics with my K320i.erk.many pics are taken using my friend’s phone.we walked around,capturing pictures by the road…sampai org2 yang naik kete lalu kt tepi tu suruh balik.hahahah well,malam masih muda.baru 11 pm.it’s in a campus,people.kalau kat kampus UKM tu barulah kata dah malam.haha we passed many buildings which i can;t remember particularly because of the night.
then we lepak kat kafe Delima,drinking teh susu late at night.some guys from PALAPES still with their boots and sports attire.wonder if they had taken their bath for the day.urgh.then we play with the ice that we bought just then n throwing it at each other.this thing i have been loving to do since school days…felt like at that time too.going around,doing things like that.forgot that i’m a university student right now.Miss The Good Old Days!later that night,we talked a lot,resisting to sleep.even eating.that’s how i get this body of mine…eating before sleep.got no one else to blame but myself.hahahaha bangun subuh esok pagi lps tu tido blk sampai 9am.then rushing to went back to my college.and what a long bus journey that will be.only when the T603 bus just arrived at the main gate heading out from UiTM,i looked back and saw that old SAAS Tower that my friend had told me about.like she said,it is really the one thing we can see from a far,outside UiTM.It’s where the accounting n some other faculties were situated(i’m not sure).Somehow,i felt a little weird walking around the UiTM campus without seeing any chinese and indians.all are malays,just whether they r girls/boys and whether the girls are wearing tudung or not.Felt weird at that.Because i’m used to seeing many chinese/indians students at my place.another big difference from my campus.
I’m not sure if this is the beginning of my Tour to universities around the country.i like doing it.i like to see what’s there n what’s here,how’s the people n how’s the place looks like.New?old?modern?variety of people?the most grand building?big/small?and what about the facilities?i’d like to know.so i’m actually saying this with another university in mind…emmm maybe UM or UTP…maybe UTP looks nicer…UM is old.but nevertheless i still want to see them.p/s:sorry unable to take the VC’s pics.his face is e v e r y w h e r e,with his moustache.uh-oh.
