Lunar New Year 2020 - Blooms of ProspeRATy

On 20th January, MCSIM had successfully held its first event for the year of 2020, annual Lunar New Year celebration with the theme of - Blooms of ProspeRATy. This event served mainly as a platform for all SIM students to gather together for a reunion dinner before Chinese New Year especially those who could not make it back to home. Also, participants can make new friends throughout this event! The event began at 6:30pm and ended at 9:30pm.

Our organising committees gathered at as early as 10am to get ready with all the preparations needed.

Committees were briefed by our President, Esther and Event Director, Chun Wei about their respective roles and responsibilities

Meanwhile, we also invited some special guests such as SIM Guitar Club and Esprimere Singing Club to perform while our participants were enjoying their scrumptious dinner! Their performances were really wonderful and the audiences truly enjoyed it.

We believed all the international students present will have learnt some of our Malaysian Chinese culture throughout the event! Do continue to support MCSIM in the years to come and we always look forward to having all of you together with us.

Thank you SIM Guitar Club and Esprimere Singing Club for taking time off your busy schedule to perform for us. Not forgetting our organising committees, we thank them for their effort and hard work put in into this event. Without them, all these would not have been possible!

MCSIM BBQ was a fun, food-filled day with lots of activities and scrumptious goodies.

The targeted number of participants were 60 people, excluding MCSIM EXCOs and subcommittees.

The event started at 4:30 PM and ended at approximately 8:30 PM. The purpose of the event was to gather Malaysian students from SIM and to help them forge and strengthen new bonds with one another. The events were also held in hopes of the participants being able to take a breather before resuming their daily study routine.

Before the commencement of the event, the committee had prepared some light refreshments which could be obtained after participants completed their registration.

The activity proceeding the registration was the formation of groups and the ice-breaking games! The games the committee prepared had the purpose of encouraging the participants to warm up and be better acquainted with one another.

Once again, this marks the end of another event with our dear MCSIM members. We hope that we’ll be able to cater to more participants in the subsequent year and that every single attendee managed to have fun and be better acquainted with one another.

And as the saying goes, “Together is a wonderful place to be”.
Cheers to friendship and camaraderie.

Life Game 2019 - Together

Date: 20th October 2019
Venue: Siloso beach, Sentosa

The aim of this event is to allow the participants to learn core values that can be applied in daily lives, release stress by taking a breather from studying, and to make new friends and connections.
The target audience for our event is all SIM students.

At 8AM, the participants and a handful of committee members gathered at SIM to facilitate the registration of participants.

Welcome to the opening ceremony everyone!!!

Brandon and Gillian were the emcees for the day, and they conducted the opening of the event.

Everyone was feeling excited and hyped for what was about to happen!

After explaining all the rules and game flow, we jumped right into the ice breaking session which enabled the participants to tighten their team bond.

WAIT!! Before that, let’s do some warming up first!

Okay!! We’re ready to roll!

We are a big happy family!

At around 10:30AM, it was time to flag off. Participants then travelled to their respective game station that served the purpose of imparting them with certain objectives and lessons.

Hidden Box, a game where we allow participants to understand the importance of listening and discerning information in a noisy situation.

 Hands and Legs, a game where coordination and awareness between the group members is vital!    

Roly-Poly, a game where team members have to move the ping-pong ball from the starting point to the ending point without any verbal communication.

Session 1 ended at 12:35PM. All the participants and committees were required to head back to the home base to have their sumptuous lunch.

Everyone was so focused on their food because of their hungry, rumbling tummies!

Let’s continue with our second session of station games! 

Tower-It! The objective of this game was to instill the spirit of teamwork in each member and for the members to see their coordination between each other.

After the game sessions, all the participants were ushered to gather at Emerald Pavilion by 4PM for a special session. This session needed all the participants to build and complete the separated logo pieces using the colourful ice cream sticks that they had collected throughout the day.

This was the final result! YAYYYY~

The activity that ensued after the special session was the mass game. The mass game required each team to make a full attire out of newspapers and it was to be worn by a single member of their team. The rest of the members played the roles of being defenders by protecting their member from the water or attackers that tried to destroy the  newspaper outfit.

Let us present to you the creativity of our participants!

All the teams were united in protecting their newspaper models together.

Finally, it was time for the award-giving ceremony!

2nd runner up, Team Green!

1st runner up, Team Brown!

 Champion, Team Grey!


A big thank you to all the participants and all the committees that were involved in Life Game 2019. At the same time, thank you to the EXCOs and sub-comms who put in a lot of effort and did their best to conduct this big, fun-filled event. Here’s to seeing you all in the future but till then, farewell and best wishes.
