Dear Nantah Alumni,
It is my pleasure and privilege to invite you for a holiday in Penang, Malaysia this December, 2004. We are greatly honoured to have been selected to organize the 9th Nanyang University Global Alumni Reunion and we are determined to do our best.
I would like to highlight the following attractions:
Firstly, we try to control the expenses so that it is inexpensive enabling more people to participate. You would notice that we have tried to bring all the charges reasonable, many items such as meals are either sponsored or subsidized. With the present exchange rate, Malaysia is very affordable in terms of accommodation and food.
Secondly, we would like to present Penang as an attractive tourist destination with its multicultural society, its rich heritage, hills and beaches. Its vicinity to other tourist spots like Thailand and Langkawai Islands would be exploited as well. In particular for those who are adventurous in foods, it would be a paradise where we can find a wide variety of hawker foods and cuisine from various countries.
This year's reunion will be a last opportunity for Nantah alumni to meet before the 2005 dateline whereby there are moves by Nanyang Technological University to be renamed Nanyang University. This topic had aroused a hive of discussions in the printed as well as the electronic media. We hope to provide a forum whereby our alumni could exchange views on this issue that affects our alma mater.
The three-day program will kick off with the welcoming/reunion dinner on Friday, 10th December and the main activities will be centred on Saturday, 11th December where we will have the grand opening ceremony, forum/discussion/lectures and Nantah Night. The final day will also be the beginning of organized tours or explorations and we have planned time-out excursions to nearby destinations like Pulau Langkawi in Kedah and Betong in Thailand. In Betong, we will be entertained by the Mayor and taken to a tour to its proposed Chinese University.
All in all, it will be a rewarding experience not to be missed. Can I expect your full force attendance?
