HELLO AND SELAMAT DATANG!
Apa khabar dear readers!
It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure to welcome you here! You’re looking at the official blog of In Search of Sabah 2017, the thirteenth instalment in the In Search Of study trip series.
Since 2004, the School of Arts & Social Sciences of Monash University Malaysia has been organising annual study trips within and beyond Malaysia based on the following key objectives:
- To expose participants to some of the social, cultural and political realities of neighbouring ASEAN countries
- To allow participants the opportunities to hone their observational, writing and journalistic skills in an unfamiliar environment
This year’s travelers will set forth an adventure to someplace closer to home: Sabah, with the noble pursuit of knowledge plus a healthy dose of fun! Fix your gaze on this space for updates over the duration of the trip – from June 27th to July 2nd – as we encapsulate the essence an array of sights and sounds, tastes and smells, throughout our stay.
Meanwhile, do meet and get to know the team by checking out the ‘Travellers’ tab above!
Welcome on board once again and terima kasih for swinging by! Stay tuned and get excited as we #taksabah to discover the Land Below the Wind!
“If I’d learnt one thing from traveling, it was that the way to get things done was to go ahead and do them. Don’t talk about going to Borneo. Book a ticket, get a visa, pack a bag, and it just happens.” – Alex Garland
