[Bakti Siswa 2019] – An Interview with Program Director, Amer Danial


    Bakti Siswa 2019 – Mahasiswa D’Hati Rakyat, conducted by the Student Representative Council of 2018/2019, will be taking place in Kampung Pachitan, Port Dickson from 11th-14th April 2018. It is the third installation of the Bakti Siswa series, and a tradition started by the Student Representative Council of 2016/2017 in Kampung Lahar, Kepala Batas, Pulau Pinang. Muhammad Amer Danial bin Rahmat, program director and president of the Student Representative Council of 2018/2019, describes Bakti Siswa 2019 as a volunteerism event for UNITEN students to immerse themselves in a rural kampong setting and adjust to the lifestyle of the locals, while contributing to their adopted families and the kampong as well.

    This year’s Bakti Siswa involves the most participants yet, comprising 160 participants from both Putrajaya and Muadzam campuses of Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN). NADi was able to observe decent feedback from the participants after they were involved in Bakti Siswa’s Training of Participants (TOP), which took place in the Leisure Hall from 6th-7th April 2019. Nur Syafiqah binti Mokhtar, one of the many participants, is feeling especially excited for Bakti Siswa 2019 after attending TOP, “I felt that the TOP was tedious and unnecessary at first, but I quickly turned around. I really enjoyed the activities and the bonding between the participants. I’m more excited now to meet my foster family and participate in the activities to come for Bakti Siswa.”


    Happy Eid Mubarak (and Test 1 Too!)


    As loud, crackling fireworks cheer in the air,

    As nakal little kiddies run around without care,

    As rendang is served, with ketupat to go,

    As masjids blast prayers, like a grand premier show,

    As colours paint streets, sampings and all,

    Baju kurungs and songkoks and glittery shawls,

    As graves are visited, cherished ones you miss dearly,

    As duit raya is given, waking up fresh and early,

    As the Eid-ul Fitr spirit pumps in your veins,

    As you’re with father and mother, no more academic pain.

    Go RE, go SD, goodbye FYP,

    Go Thermo, go capstone, stop kacau-ing me.

    Or at least ’til the morrow ’cause exam season is near,

    To fill up your senses with a polar opposite cheer,

    So study you will, between platefuls of rendang,

    And God knows, perhaps, Test 1 will be kacang?

    But at least for today, come chill with your kin,

    Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir dan Batin.

    Don’t Vote? Don’t Complain #UnitenElection


    Ladies and gentlemen, we are creeping ever nearer, ever closer to the climax of this tiring week. That’s right, everyone! On the 15th June 2017 (AKA Thursday), it’s finally time for us to exercise our power as students of UNITEN and vote!

    Now we know who to vote for, when to vote, and where to vote.

    But do we know WHY should we vote?

    Reason #1: Practicing a democratic process.

    Voting is one way to uphold the state of democracy that exists in our country. As Malaysians (or any other citizen of a democratic country. Not looking at you, NK) we have our own general election to choose our leaders. But as students, are we prepared to take up that responsibility?

    Salam Maulidur Rasul

    Tanggal 12 Rabiulawal merupakan satu tarikh keramat dalam sejarah umat Islam di seluruh dunia. Kedatangan Nabi Muhammad yang merupakan satu rahmat terbesar dan anugerah teragung yang Allah SWT kurniakan kepada alam semesta ini. Manusia pada saat itu berada dalam kekufuran, kegelapan dan tidak mengenal pencipta mereka. Pada masa tersebut juga penyembahan terhadap berhala menjadi suatu penghormatan, perzinaan adalah suatu kebanggaan, mabuk dan judi berleluasa, merompak serta membunuh adalah suatu keberanian.
