Taylor's University CommFest 2012

Communication Festival (as known as CommFest), is an annual flagship event organized by the School of Communication of Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus. This festival aims to expose students as well as the public, to the field of Communication through different theme’s each year. CommFest is jointly organized by proPassion Communications, a Public Relations consultancy managed by the Diploma in Communication students from the School of Communication.

This year, CommFest2012 will be featuring the theme, Social-Lympics that is a combination of social media and sports. Youth nowadays are lack of participation in outdoor activities due to their addiction to social Media. Youngsters now spend an average of one hour and 50 minutes online and two hours 40minute in front of the television every day. Social network has made the life of people more interesting; its negative impact has created lack of participation among the youth in outdoor activities. 

Cyber-Relationship Addiction to social networking, chat rooms, and messaging to the point where virtual, online friends become more important than real-life relationships with family and friends.
Our aim is to encourage our participants to Log-Off from their virtual life of social media communication and walk into our CommFest2012 where social-media meet sports, which also will allow them to understand the importance to balance social media and sport for a healthier lifestyle.
Furthermore, there are few road shows before the event to create positive image of CommFest2012 and to build enthusiasm for CommFest 2012.  The venue and time of the road shows are shown as below:
Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus: 10th, 12th, 17th, 19th, 22nd and 24th October
Taylor’s University Subang Jaya: 15th and 22nd October

The committee of CommFest 2012 will bring entertaining challenges such as InstaDrink and InstaCaps to you during the road shows. Participants for InstaDrink are required to challenge different flavour of isotonic drinks in one minute. Furthermore, InstaCaps is purposed for participants to experience the Instagram to life and win prizes based on the irrelevant captions, which bring more fun and laughter to the contest.

Besides that, CommFest2012 is holding a video competition, which is called the Mobisodes. It is an idea to film short videos using mobile phones. Requirement of joining Mobisodes is to film a 2 minutes video of some games in applications of smart phones to life. For instance, CommFest2012‘s crew did a filming based on the Temple Run game to life! Hence, we would like to give a shout out to all the students out there, as long as you are holding a student ID, you’re qualified to join our Mobisodes contest! 

It will be fun filming your usual favourite app games into real life.

大家好 大慨有半年的时间没有更新我的部落格了刚刚把整个部落格清理的一遍
时间过的真的很快 这是我第四个月在澳洲留学的日子 冬天也快过去了 真的很想念出去不用把自己包的像粽子的日子
之前因为不习惯冬天的天气 肺腑肌肉麻痹不能呼吸所以晕倒 进了医院 这是我在马来西亚从来没有遇到的事情
上星期不小心掉了我的护照 还好有人捡到帮我送去警察局
从一开始一个人来到这边 需要自己去面对很多的问题  到现在在这边认识了很多新朋友 开始喜欢上澳洲的生活 很享受这一种很悠闲念书的感觉

 不久前 在这边举办了一场很好玩的 Royal Adelaide Show 这是每一年在Adelaide最大型的一场Show

难的早起身, 四个人 Vivien, Steve, Roger, 和我一起到那去玩 ,我们很幸运 因为当天是难的不冷而且天气很好的一天。因为当天天气很好,很多到都到了那去,人山人海加上肚子又很饿,买好门票后我们进去的第一件事情就是找好吃的食物。
接下来, 就是开始我们的游戏。。。里面有各种各样的游戏摊,有太多我很爱的Spongebob,还有很多很刺激的游戏,我和 Vivien 虽然不停被这两个男人被逼去玩那些很刺激的游戏,但是我们意志力非常坚定怎样都不玩(其实是非常胆小 哈哈=p) 结果他们没办法只好先陪我们

这是很可爱的Steve 为了帮我赢到Spongebob很用心的投篮

这是我们的战利品, 很可怜Roger和 Steve 要整个路上要抱着这么多的娃娃 =p


接下来 会常常在部落格更新我的生活 :)
Happy Saturday to all ^^
