K-POP Fantasia Trip to Korea!

Hello!

NewProStar is organising a trip to Korea for all Korean Hallyu fans!

The trip begins on the 9 December to 13 December 2015, 4 days and three nights. Perfect winter time!

What will the trip provide? Exciting activities of course, especially for those who love K-pop!

The top 4 activities to look forward are..

First, there will be visits to 4 Korean artiste agencies and their artistes which includes High4, Halo, B.I.G and also a surprise group! It’s not easy getting access to entertainment companies, this is the chance! (Personally, I’d love to meet HIGH4 again, heheh.)

Then secondly, (personally I would love to visit this!) KPOP Hologram concert featuring PSY, G- Dragon, Big Bang, 2NE1! It’s like going to their concert!

Thirdly, of course they couldn’t miss out on the famous artistes cafes, Infinite cafe, Cube cafe , Rain Cafe, for example.

Lastly, there will be a trip to K-Star Forest which is a place where trees are planted for G-Dragon, Girl’s Generation, EXO and many more artists in support of their artists and also helps with making awareness of the environment today. This forest dedicates to the K-pop idols and the fans, but also helps the environment, best of both worlds!

Fear not, there are definitely more than four activities during this trip, there’ll also be free and easy time, and not forgetting shopping time! When in Seoul, shop till you drop! (Buy all the cosmetics and your favourite idol’s albums and merchandises!)

Here are the more detailed information! Do check out their Facebook page for more information regarding the trip.

Wish I can join but unfortunately I’m not able to. 😦

Perhaps, next time.

Till next time!

Just education

It’s 7pm and I am losing focus trying to write my final essay for this semester. So I decided to blog! The topic I’ll be discussing is about education. Right, education, is it that important? Is education everything? (Ps. I’ve no idea where I am heading with this post, hehe.)

Well, to me, a student who did not do well during high school at all, I barely pass my chemistry, physics and additional mathematics during SPM. I don’t even get a pass during monthly exams, so for me to pass was good enough for me, I didn’t hope for an A, I just wanted to pass. And I did. So then after that, it’s time for tertiary education. As I didn’t do so well for my SPM, I didn’t have much choice I have to say. I set my mind of doing mass communications even before I got my results, I didn’t even look at other courses. So I went to Taylor’s University and got myself enrolled into their Diploma in Communication course, luckily I met the requirements and then I went on to study for two and a half years in Taylor’s, and I had a lot of fun, met some really good friends! For once, I didn’t do badly in school, I was and still is happy with my results. My point is, one doesn’t need to get all A’s in school to go to a good university. I’ve often heard relatives say the typical, “Study hard for your future”, “How many A’s did you get?”, “Oh, what are you going to study in uni?”, those kind of questions. Yes, I get education is important, but I think there are also other things that are as important, family, passion, hobbies.

Passion is very important for me. I spent two and a half years majoring in journalism, which I somewhat enjoyed. I thought it’s fun, it was even better when I started interning with Seventeen magazine. I thought to myself, yes, this is what I want to do in the future. I personally feel sometimes when I tell people I am doing (mass communication/ social sciences), people tend to be like, “Oh.” Also, I’ve heard other students from different faculty say that, “Oh, mass comm? That’s easy”, “Everyday you go party one right?”, okay, let’s set this straight, no, it’s not easy, it’s as hard as any other courses, I don’t go party every night, I don’t even go party during normal nights. What is easy in life? Well, this industry is definitely not the conventional industry where all the parents want their kids to join. The myth of how every parent wants their kid to be an engineer, doctor, lawyer, and etc. My parents didn’t object, so that’s good. Doing what you like is important! You don’t have to be a doctor to be successful, be whatever you want.

Never in my dreams I thought I would be studying in Monash University, because it has always been one of the uni where it is super difficult to get accepted, and I, someone who is not the best at studying managed to get a spot (which I still sometimes feel, wow, I’m studying here.) Right! I also get comments like, “Wow, you so smart” when I tell them I’m studying in Monash. Err, no, I worked hard. I just want to say, it doesn’t matter that you’ve failed once, or twice, or how ever many times you’ve failed, or you didn’t get good results for SPM, like me, do what you enjoy and you’ll excel. Choose what you want to do not choose what society/ family/ peer pressure wants you to do. We all know, there is this one family member who will be like, “You should do science, good for your future”. You do you, I do me.

Till next time!
