Work & Internship

Adulting.

Assalamualaikum,

Hello (again) blog. Sorry for the late late update (again). Can’t say that life has been hectic, but it’s obviously not that hectic that I can still spend hours watching random stupid videos on Facebook and 9gag, but I also can’t say that life has been easy because it’s not.

So, yes, I can officially say that I am currently working as an Administrative Executive (Course Administration) at Monash University Malaysia. I’ve been here for the past month, and so far things have been interesting. This is my first experience, not only to work in Malaysia, but to experience and see how a Malaysian university (albeit a private one) operates from the administration’s standpoint. Granted, it’s only been a month, and the fact that I’m the youngest person in my office with no prior experience (other than my part-time job in the US), makes it a little weird, but it’d be a good place for me to see how universities in Malaysia work, and it’d help me to see if student services is really what I want to pursue in my life.

Summer Internship @ MACEE, Part 2.

Assalamualaikum,

Allow me to [not] apologize for the lack of updates on this blog. It seems like no matter how much I say I’m sorry for not updating it and whatnot, I always seem to procrastinate in writing a blog post, albeit a short one. #haiz

Anyhows, this is a short (hopefully) summary of my internship experience at MACEE. I pretty much wrote quite a lot about what MACEE is and what I actually do as an intern under the Fulbright Malaysia & EducationUSA in my previous post here. So here’s just a little extra thing for you.

Summer Internship @ MACEE, Kuala Lumpur

Assalamualaikum,

Okay, before you yell at me for not posting in the past, hmm, one month, that I’ve been home in Malaysia, here’s something to make it up to you. Happy now? No? Well, that’s all you’re going to get, soooo 😛

Anyhows… Hello again, Malaysia!

Summer internship MACEE Kuala Lumpur

It’s good to be back, mostly because of the food (obviously). I do not miss the weather (though it’s okay for now), and I certainly do not miss how bad the traffic is getting to work. That reminds me. As I wrote in my previous blog post (which was ages ago, I’m sorry), I’m currently interning at the Malaysian-American Commission on Educational Exchange (MACEE for short). It’s at Jalan Bukit Bintang, so right in the center and obviously, traffic is horrendous here.
