Brendan enrolled in University of Malaysia, Sarawak (UNIMAS) in September 2019 to pursue his Bachelor Of Arts In English For Global Communication (With Honours). It was then that we began acquainting ourselves with this little known suburb of Kuching, though it is a district in its own right.
Brendan was assigned Cempaka Residential College as his dorm and in his first week of enrolment during the Minggu Aluan Pelajar (or students' welcoming week?) together with two other students brought glory to the college when they won the inter-college English debating tournament.
Brendan then came back for his semester break in March 2020, which was when the pandemic hit, and for the next four semesters or two years he attending lectures remotely from our home in Kuala Lumpur.
Last November he was asked to come back to attend face to face classes. Alas Cempaka Residential College turned their backs on him and did not offer him a room. We know for a fact that cronyism is practiced but will not say anything further on the matter.
We had no other choice but to put him up at the paid Dahlia Residential College for the remainder of his seventh semester.
A few days ago was his last day at Dahlia College, which was why we flew to Kuching. Apart from his convocation next year this would be among the last times that we will be visiting UNIMAS.
Despite the ungracious experience with Cempaka College Brendan still had far more fond memories of this place, which is why we decided to take a drive around most parts of UNIMAS as well as take a walk along his most frequented places here.
We hope you will enjoy the video, whether or not you are or were a student of UNIMAS.
