【Bulletin】Yokohama Brothers & Sisters Program

For the first time ever, MSAJ held a collaboration event called “Yokohama Brothers & Sisters Program” with Yamato-Nishi Senior High School, a traditional Japan high school located in Kanagawa Prefectural.

The event is a new type of volunteer program where the volunteers (Malaysian students) spend their time together with the high school students walking around places in Yokohama in order to make them feel comfortable communicating with foreigners (Malaysian) in English before going for a school trip to Malaysia in October 2014.

Although the program started early in the morning at 9:00AM, all the participants gave their full cooperation by coming early to the meeting point, Yokohama Park, without being late. After a little briefing from the school teacher, the volunteers were separated to 24 groups of students. Each groups consists of 5~7 Yamato-Nishi students and 1 Malaysian student. All the groups then started their trip according to the route that they have planned before. Among the places visited were Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, Yokohama Cosmo World, China Town, and CupNoodles Museum.

The morning session ended at around 12:00PM and the volunteers had some rest and lunch at JICA Yokohama. At around 1:30PM, the evening session started and once again, the volunteers were divided into smaller groups with the students and they went around Yokohama again but with different course. The evening session ended around 3:30PM and all the volunteers and students gathered at Yokohama Park before being dismissed.

It was an interesting and memorable event for both volunteers and the students. Despite the age gap between them, they were able to mingle and chat friendly. The school also hoped to have the same event next year.

Vice President

【Bulletin】MSAJ x KUJ Hanami and Welcoming Party 2014

On Sunday, 6 April 2014, MSAJ has organized a hanami (cherry blossom viewing) and welcoming party in collaboration with Kelab UMNO Jepun (KUJ). This event was held at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, located in Shinjuku, one of the favorite spots for Hanami with a large number of crowds. As it was the peak (full bloom) for Sakura blossom, MSAJ grabbed this golden opportunity to organize this event with the purposes of welcoming new juniors and letting Malaysians to mingle with each other.

    We managed to secure a spot near to Shinjuku Gate at around 10 a.m. as the event began at around 11 a.m. More than 80 people from Malaysia, Japan and even other countries like Vietnam came to the event. The party started with the distribution of Bento to everyone and the commencement of the photography competition. The submission for photography competition was closed at around 13.30 p.m. After serious judging by the higher-ups from each association, the winners were decided and the first prize was won by Mr. TJ Tan while the second prize was given to Ms. Farah and the third place went to Ms. Amelia. Mr. Zed, incumbent president of MSAJ, delivered the prizes for both photography competition and lucky draw.  Five lucky winners were given cool swags such as noise-cancelling headphone and wireless speaker. Despite the unpredictable weather, the event went smoothly thanks to the cooperation and warm greetings from everyone.  We certainly hope that this event will continue to be an annual welcoming party for Malaysians in Japan.

【Bulletin】Meeting with Managing Director of AEON Malaysia

Kaihin Makuhari, 25 October 2013, 6pm – 9pm.

AEON invited several Malaysian students representing different groups/associations for dinner near their HQ at Kaihin Makuhari. MSAJ’s representatives were Rifqi and Cliff. Main agenda is meeting with Madam Nur Qamarina aka Mary Chew, the Managing Director of AEON Malaysia, as well as Human Resources representative of AEON Japan.

Things that we’ve brought up on that day:

1) Students’ wish list on items available in AEON Japan.
MSAJ will collect feedbacks from students on what items that they want AEON Japan to sell.
(example: Milo 3-in-1, Old Town white coffee, chili sauce, kicap manis, cili padi etc.)

A form has been created for Malaysian students in Japan to fill until mid November, compiled and submitted to Madam Chew directly.

2) Visit to AEON museum.
One of the HR rep, Ito-san recommended that MSAJ should visit the company’s museum to get to know more about the company which is open from 10am – 4pm on weekdays.
Maybe MSAJ can organize a visit there as this could benefit the students greatly as AEON is a pretty well-established company in Japan as well as back home.

3) MSAJ’s Career Fair.
AEON expressed their interest in participating MSAJ Career Fair next year.
