I was recently given an assignment to create “web presence”. What this meant was that I had to create a blog or a wiki and then connect it to three contributing nodes.
Knowing WordPress best I decided to base my main node right here. The idea was simple, I wanted to create a social diary of international and local students studying in Curtin University, Sarawak campus in Malaysia.
Here is a link to our university website
Sarawak is one of two Malaysian provinces on the island of Borneo. Borneo is the largest island in the world, shared between Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia. The two Malaysian provinces (combined, called East Malaysia) are Sabah and Sarawak.
Curtin University is based out of a little industrial city called Miri.
The idea is simple. I have created another blog, which has a corresponding Youtube channel, a facebook page and a twitter page, all of which are basically one big social journal of what we get up to here while we study. It really is an interesting environment because we are all essentially foreigners, even the Malaysians from West Malaysia that study here. I wanted to chronicle how we interact and how well we get along essentially, people not only from different countries but from completely different cultures and backgrounds, political opinions, genders, race and religion. There is so much to be learnt in such an environment!
So if you, dear constant reader, are interested in seeing what goes on in this little slice of tropical paradise then here are the links you need. Feel free to comment, subscribe, post, give feedback and follow!
