J, K, L and M of Monash

J – Jaywalking Who cares if there’s a well-built, elevator *and* escalator-equipped overhead bridge that links the main entrance to the BRT station and the shoplots of Sunway? A big part of Monash culture is a real-life simulation of Crossy Roads, where out of ‘convenience’ and pure laziness outweigh the risks of jaywalking across four…

Dance Into The Night (Denim Style)

Any decent person would know better than to tell a woman what she can or cannot wear, or whether her choice of clothing determines the odds of getting harassed. The Wom*ns Officers’ Denim Dance was not only a celebration towards that statement but also brought together a crowd indigo-loving for some good fun. The event…

MUSA Week + MUSA Forum

Over the earlier parts of Week 7, you might have noticed the small, quaint MUSA Week booth decked with pastel sticky notes. With the use of good ol’ classical conditioning, students were prompted with cookies in exchange for their feedback, complaints and suggestions written on Post-its. All queries given were meant to be brought up…

Routine: A Mother’s Routine

Editor’s Note: I’m not crying! You are! Artist’s Note: It’s inspired by a best friend of mine who passed away.

Routine: Just Another Day

Editor’s Note: Everyone’s given 24 hours in a day, it’s really what you do that counts. Zheryew’s piece demonstrates the perfect juxtaposition of incorporating madness within mundanity, and showcases how some routines may not be so simple, after all. If you’re looking for an accompanying soundtrack, here’s my personal suggestion.   Just another day. A:…

Revival: 4th IChemE Sports Day 2018

Last Saturday was a very special day for the Monash Malaysia’s IChemE club. It has been SEVEN years since the first event that brought together IChemE student chapters from universities around Malaysia. No, it wasn’t an event where a bunch of engineers sit around and design model airplanes. We have fun too! And what better…

C&S Review: Monash Performing Arts Club (MPAC)

Mondays can be a real Mon-DIE sometimes, especially when you know the week is going to come at you like a pick-up truck driven by an intoxicated person who’s going to pull a hit and run. You’re gonna be left lying in the middle of campus, trying to catch your breath while getting the life…
