MARAcongs !!

This coming Saturday, 2 April 2011 will see a Reunion of graduates from JO Kampus (Jalan Othman) UiTM, Petaling Jaya.  Its totally for MARAcongs. Yes MARAcongs only.

Why MARAcongs ? What is MARAcongs ? Remember the late 70's of Vietcong spirit fighting the mighty USA in Vietnam.  Thats the spirit that wanted to be installed in undergrads of Maktab MARA or MARA Collage to fight for better future of the Bumiputras.  No we were not gorillas but mere spiritual feelings to be better. 

We identified ourselves as MARAcongs from MARA Collage for the batch of '65 to '69, where orientation of new students to overcome cultural shock and getting to know seniors, not ragging or bullying but mere teasing.

It all started in Facebook between friends namely Jit Pedro aka Azizan, Sifu, Basar , Syed Idrus, Kassim, Taufik as the main ad hoc AJK now expended to include UiTM JO members in seeing a lot of friends having AY in front of their names so the idea of a get together of JO undergraduates not an alumni.

So if  you  are a MARAcongs or your father, mother, grandparents from this era tell them about us or asked them about us, if they heard or know about us then get them to come this Saturday, 2 April 2011 at 3 pm at UiTM Jalan Othman Kampus, Petaling Jaya.

Sifu in difficulty too as Sifu's family will be having an Annual Family Gathering at Port Dickson, but Inshaallah will make the effort to be at JO Kampus.
