Monash Ball ’22: Night of Iridescence

We made it folks. We survived the second semester filled with long lectures, all-nighters and “maybe I should just drop out” jokes. So, what better way to commemorate the end of our year-long battle with assignments and exams than an enchanting night of iridescence🤩 The Monash Ball was held on 20th November (Sunday) from 6pm…

MUSA DID WHAT #9: It’s Almost A Wrap!

The semester might be over but the duties of MUSA must carry on, albeit there is a sense of relaxation as we slowly hand over our duties to our successors (may the odds be ever in their favour). However, there are still some loose ends that we need to tie up before we all embark…

Ranjanidevi, Winner of Top Chef (Desserts)

Desserts have always been my Achilles heel, so when asked to cover the winners of Top Chef Monash, I immediately jumped at the chance to interview Ranjanidevi Kannan’s (@randeedeeeeee) winning plate, aptly named: The Decadent Trio, which, as the name suggests consists of a beautiful brownie trio of the following flavours: salted maple brownie, white…

Wellness Week

Midnight Memoirs: On The Shore

It was new year’s, I was a fledgling to drinking and yeah.. You can guess how it ended. My face firmly planted on the ground but the weird shit didn’t happen when I was awake, it happened in my dreams and I have never been filled with such existential dread as I was after that…

Midnight Memoirs: As Long As You Do It Well

Wow, so blue. I’ve never seen such a pristine sky. The floating white cotton-candy clouds scattered in the bright blue looked like islands where angels belonged. Standing in a 35-degree weather with a crop top and denim shorts, I waited for my boyfriend to pick me up. In just a day, I was flying off…

MONCH @ Halab KL

Right in the heart of KL, stood Halab, a Middle-Eastern restaurant that offered a whole host of Syrian, Yemeni, and Arabian-inspired dishes. We visited Halab during the afternoon, and given the long queues, we had seen just a while away, for Halab KL’s famous shawarma, it was clear we were at the right place. In…

Humans of Monash: Nic

When I was in primary school, I really wanted to impress this girl. So, I was like ‘Wouldn’t it be sick if I wrote a song for her?’ But turns out I did not sing her a song, in fact, I showed no one that song but I was like you know what? It’s kinda…
