Orientation @ TCPJ

Yup, my college life @ Taylor's College Petaling Jaya (TCPJ) has officially started!

So basically this week is Orientation Week, since it's all about getting us "newbies" familiarised with the school's system and campus and other miscellaneous stuff. Today was pretty boring - some talks on the library's usage and some note-taking tips.

Monday, 28th July 2008 -
Needless to say, it didn't seem to start out very smoothly when I walked into The Annexe (fancy name for "Hall-in-the-Basement") and went over report my attendance, only to discover that my name wasn't on the list for Foundation in Communication. In my head I was like "Wtf? I registered 4 freakin' months ago and paid my fees last week! Why the hell is my name NOT on the list?!" Then I showed them my receipt and they were like "Oh... In that case, write your name on the list then."

Great. Just great. -_-"

Thankfully, after that not-so-minor glitch, everything went on without incident for the rest of the day. After listening to a couple of hours of briefing/talks/speeches, we were separated into our respective "schools" (mine is School of Communication, SOC for short) and relocated to a smaller lecture hall, where we listened to some more briefings. After that, a senior brought us around for a tour of the campus. Then we were released for lunch and ID photo-taking session.

Luckily, me and Jennifer (her real name is quite similar to mine *grins*) went to The Annexe early to queue up for the photo session. Waited nearly 30 minutes before our turn, and then we went to have lunch with Charmaine (not sure if I spelled her name correctly, sorry~) before going back to the small lecture hall.

Now began our "ice breaking" session of the day. Each of us were given slips of paper with song lyrics on them. We were supposed to find people who had lyrics from the same song and form a group. I got a line from Madonna's "Don't Cry For Me Argentina". LoL!

We got together with the other group who got Madonna's song "American Pie" and sat in double rows. The first game we played was Charades. The theme was "Titles of Famous Movies" and all the other groups managed to guess both their movie titles except our group. (I bet all of us will forever remember "Toy Story" now! Haha!) However, we were not discouraged by this. In the second game, a group member was chosen to be "creatively mummified". All of us agreed that Michelle was the most suitable member to be mummified. XD And so she went from this... this!

Thanks for being such a good sport! ^^
(Credits to Michelle herself for the photos - I stole the links from her blog *guilty*)

And in the end, our group even managed to get 1st runner-up in the "Mummy Competition"! Yay~!! Our prize was a packet of Van Houten chocolates. Yummy~ =)

Group pics! And yes, that's the one and only guy in our group. XD
