Farewell, The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus

27th of May 2009, I got done with final paper and left UNMC with a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering with honours. Results were released two Mondays ago and I achieved a second upper class honours. That marked the end of my life as a student and I'll be joining the ranks of other fresh graduates out there.
It has been three year since I joined this UK based university. I came with a few friends from college and shared an apartment at the university accommodation.
I remember ...... times where we laughed so hard that we only slept at 4am simply because we were laughing so hard for the past two hours thanks to See Tho.....
