^^ lol...then i should be very honoured to be on the very first session...hehe..lots of Dr. the real doctors and of coz those with PhD (well hopefully there are some young ones..hahaha)...need to buka mata betul betul on that day :P

anyway u guys seem to be worry alot bout this whole convo thing...hehe..don't worry...relax...basically they'll send u all the info that u need to know...well, i can help out to tell u guys what i remember from my last year's convo..

errmm firstly about the raptai...well basically u can opt to go or not to go... they'll show u how to wear ur robe, hood and mortarboard properly, how u should receive ur cert from the "fella", how u should walk down the stage holding ur cert, ur seating in the hall...and basically they'll show u some videos of previous convos whereby students made mistakes...tripping on the stage, the mortarboard drop when they bowed while saying thank you to the "fella" and other embarrassing moments.. so that we won't be doing the same. so if u have time for all these, well its a fun way to waste ur time, haha..but if u don't also its alright..just follow whateva the person in front of u are doing and u'll be fine.

secondly, bout those robe, hood and ur mortarboard...u can collect them urselves if u reach penang earlier...or u can ask someone to collect for u by filling up a form (which they'll send to u) that form u need to fill up ur sizes and all and they teach u where and how to measure..this one u need to measure urself properly specially for the mortarboard size (previously i had a hard time cos those sizes just didn't suit the end i opt for the adjustable strap mortarboard..what to do when my kepala kempis!) anyway whateva it is, if u go collect urselves, pls try it on the spot and change on the spot if it's not fitting...cos if u don't and when they run out of sizes, u won't be able to do anything.

about convo photos, no one will be allowed to take photos while in the hall... usm has assigned a company to take photo while u receive ur scrolls from the "fella"...there'll be 3 cameramen at the side of the stage and they'll automatically take photos for u...whether u want to buy from them or not is up to u...and also there'll be videos on the whole session of ur convo..u can buy that too...but i don remember how much ...what my frens n i did last time was we bought 1 copy and burn its so much cheaper that way...

besides that, each students will receive 2 admission tickets to sit inside the graduation hall and watch the whole if u have the whole gang of ppl coming together with u, they have to wait outside the hall. if ur parents are going inside the hall....please ask them to go to the washroom first before entering the hall...after the ceremony starts, all doors arer gonna be closed and no one is allowed to go out of the hall until it ends.

as for accommodation, for those who need to book hotels... please start booking now as some cheap hotels are fully-booked as im typing this!! for those who don't have transport while in penang, it is advisable to book a hotel near usm as taxis in penang doesn't follow meter and they charged very expensive. the most common one will be vistana hotel whereby u can also book apartment with affordable prices and if u come in a large group. but for those with cars, u can opt to stay in georgetown area and if u don't mind paying more n want more comfort, u can opt for hotels at tanjung bungah and batu ferringhi. and check out hotel rates before hand. if u do ur "homework" properly, u can get cheap rooms but good services. so start booking now or asap.

about convo gifts and flowers...u can buy them cheaply at tapak convo or stalls outside usm sungai dua gate. tips: for those whereby ur convo session is at mine previously, by the time i come out of the hall will be 5 something so around 4 something only u can start buying from those stalls whereby they'll really slash the price cos flowers cannot tahan long..they'll try to sell off everything by the end of the if ur parents plan to buy for u..tell them this k and u can save sometimes up to half of ur money!!

hmm...what else? well...just drop me a msg if u guys got any further questions..if i can answer, i'll answer u...thats all for now..hope fully this msg will be able to help out :D

you are a life saver wai yee...! i forgot that i have a friend who has just been through it recently. for all who dont know, wai yee grad Pharmacy last year. this year die convo untuk Sarjana Farmasi... masters tuuu! anyway, congrats and selamat menempuh alam pekerjaan!

yeah, u shud be honoured to be receiving ur masters on the first day together with all the big shots!

anyway, thanks for the important tips! really really really helpful. i bet aboo is pleased to know he can get 'economical' flowers for me! haha!

i cant think of anything else to ask you, you practically covered EVERYTHING i wanna know. ill let you know if i think of anything to ask.

airin... i know out of topic but... darn it... i thought it was worth another shot trying to let you guys let me follow to speed dating. i bet it'll be soo much fun! I WANNA GOOOO... i promise to dress really2 bad and spit while i talk... pleaseee!

Airin Koay said...
pada hari 

ok.. but only cos u promised to dress up ugly and talk nonsense. but must confirm with bid first. hehe

waiyee said...
pada hari 

ok Dr. Sophia (aka my friend for 17 years)...i don't remember telling u that im in pharmacy..hahaha!! where u get this idea from??*curious*...yes, my bro is a pharmacist but im field has nothing to do with that...i'm in town planning/urban and regional planning...well if u don't understand, to make long story short, it's like playing the computer game "the sims" or "sim city", town planners will decide what to build, where to build, how many units to build and design layouts... so lets say there's an empty land and a developer wanna develop it, so they'll hire us the town planners to design for them...where to put roads, commercial lots, housing, recreational parks that's basically my job :D

bout the "economical" flowers, im not sure if u can get them cheap inside campus cos students are selling it...but outside campus yes, definitely!! try bargaining as hard as u can... and u'll be surprised with the outcome, trust me...hehe!! :D

LaDy Dark said...
pada hari 

owh yay!!! we will definately rock speed dating... erm, you wii rock speed dating... u and bid.... not me... no, no, definatey not me... cos ill be dressing ugly and spitting through the nonsense ill be saying... haha!

alamak, wai yee, seriously???? i dunno where i got the idea that u are doing pharmacy. i was damn sure thats wat u were doing. aiyak, sorry leh... i dunno how i got my info wrong. i have always thought u were doing pharmacy. owh well, either ways, you still have Masters, so yay to that!!! and sorry again for getting myself mixed up!!
