Sydney Ferry Crash - Accident Report

FYI, No known Bruneian affected by the accident.

Sydney Ferry Crash

Odds to be involved: very very low. Ferries here are generally safe and this is a really rare incident. Don't get intimidated.

Safety Measure: Learn to swim.

Condolences to families of deceased.


Earth Hour!

The idea is that on March 31st we all turn off our lights for 1 hour
between 7:30pm and 8:30pm. More info at Earth Hour

Earth Hour is a joint initiative between WWF Australia and Fairfax
Media and backed by the NSW state government.

p.s. Oh whatever.

Welcome Leena and Nena

Okay this might be too late for Leena. Anyways, BASS would like to welcome two more Bruneians, Dk Leena and Nena Yapp. Leena is studying Petroleum Engineering and Nena will be doing foundation in UNSW this year. Have fun in Sydney!

SPE Event!

Dear All,

SPE-UNSW will be having a SPE Ambassador Lecture Presentation this coming Thursday the 15th. The lecture will be given by David Edge.

David is a fellow Petroleum Engineer who hails from Adelaide. He works in Halliburton as a completions engineer. His work experiences has taken him all over Australia and his training hopped him all over the world.

There will also be a BBQ which will be held immediately after the talk. This BBQ is FREE, if you are an SPE member. You can sign up or renew your membership on the day and event itself, which, thanks to Halliburton Energy, is free as well.

The food will be Halal and you can be assure of that as i, myself, am the one who orders it directly from TJ Muamallah. For Victor, Caleb and Nick, we have ordered enough alcohol to kill a farmful of animals, just for you.

As a Senior, i strongly urge everyone to join in the event. Not just for the free lunch but a chance to mingle around between all levels of undergraduates and postgraduates.

What: SPE Presentation & BBQ
When: Thursday 15th May 2007 @ 12pm. Finishes at 2pm.
Where: Meet up @ foyer of Mechanical Eng. Bldg then BBQ at Gate 2.

PS. Membership to Society of Petroleum Engineers is NOT limited to Petroleum Engineering Students only. We encourage students of other engineering, sciences and geosciences discipline to join in. It's still free, you get free access to technical papers and get discounts on events. If you are residing in Brisbane or Canberra, please contact me and we'll see what we can do.

Mardi Gras '07

We were too lazy to give the new students an orientation to Sydney.

So we chucked them to Sydney's (if not the world's) biggest and ultra-gayest party of the year.

Bish & Shirley....who is very happy

The juniors (and a postgrad), when they were robbed of their innocence.
Notice Asqa (red shirt), with a "Holy Shit!" look. Fuzzy, elated.

Many thanks to Bish for her pictures from Ringo!
