When were you at Warwick?
I was in Warwick from 2005-2008 and read law. Shaheen Ali, Gary Watt and Roger Leng were among my tutors.
Do you have any fond memories?
Building a snowman in Hearsall Common, late night Malaysian Night rehearsals in the Humanities corridor (because it was only one long enough to accommodate our dikir barat troupe), random late night runs to Tescos to satisfy an ice cream craving.
Where did you live while you were at Warwick?
Lakeside; Earlsdon; Hurst
Were you a member of any societies?
I was very active in the Malaysian Students Association (Cultural Officer in my first year and President in the next). I was also quite involved in the Japan Society and participated in the Soran Bushi for OWW in 2008 – that was a workout!
What are you doing now?
I am now working at the Central Bank of Malaysia (Bank Negara Malaysia) as trade negotiator.
Why did you decide to become an alumni ambassador?
We are in the midst of setting up a formal alumni association in Malaysia and we thought that this would be a good way to fortifying that link and commitment.
What kind of people make up the Warwick alumni community in your area?
We’re mainly in the Malaysian workforce. And I would think within our own circles, the alumni do meet up from time to time. I do! There are three alumni in my department at the Bank now!
Are they expatriates or locals?
Mainly Malaysians from different sectors in the workforce. But I have met a few alumni expatriates who have moved and are now working in Malaysia as journalists.
What kind of events do you run?
Dinners and meeting up for coffee. It is usually a good-numbered group given that it’s usually a friends-meet up!
Have you been back to Warwick recently?
Not recently, although I would love to go back for a visit!
Anything else you care to add?
We’re quite excited to be starting off the formal alumni society in Malaysia and we welcome anyone who would like to join.
