The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - HOME -

TAWAU: The In­sti­tute of Sci­ence and Man­age­ment (ISM) cel­e­brated the Mid-Au­tumn fes­ti­val for the first time to pro­mote the har­mony of eth­nic di­ver­sity since mov­ing into its new cam­pus re­cently.

The event was or­ga­nized by the 1Malaysia Club of ISM with the aim of pre­serv­ing tra­di­tional Chi­nese cul­ture and pro­vid­ing more com­mu­ni­ca­tion plat­forms for stu­dents and staff.

Shim Ka Yee, the chair­per­son of the or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee, kick-started the event at 7 pm with a wel­com­ing speech. She said the Mid-Au­tumn Fes­ti­val is an im­por­tant date for fam­ily re­union; thus they have gath­ered there as a big ISM fam­ily to cel­e­brate and have fun. She also thanked all the help­ing staff for their at­ten­dance and sup­port given to the 1 Malaysia Club.

The event was then en­livened by a se­ries of ac­tiv­i­ties such as gluti­nous rice ball re­lay race, paper-cut art com­pe­ti­tion, rid­dles and so on. The or­ga­nizer also pre­pared a snow-skin moon cake work­shop to give par­tic­i­pants a chance to ex­pe­ri­ence the fun of mak­ing the fes­tive del­i­cacy.

Later on, the guests were in­vited to en­joy sim­ple re­fresh­ments such as gluti­nous rice balls, moon cakes, and moon­light bis­cuits. To pro­mote en­vi­ron­men­tal aware­ness, the or­ga­nizer en­cour­aged ev­ery­one to bring his or her own din­ner­ware. Af­ter the meal, ev­ery­one strolled around the cam­pus with lanterns il­lu­mi­nat­ing the sur­round­ing.

The evening ended af­ter the photo tak­ing ses­sion. The or­ga­niz­ers hoped that such merry cel­e­bra­tion had pro­vided the staff and stu­dents with some fun out­door ac­tiv­i­ties and at the same time, cre­ated mem­o­ries worth keep­ing.
