Welcoming the 2nd Semester.

Assalamulaikum semua & Salam Sejahtera,
Saya ada penggumuman so silalah baca,
Dalam bentuk pantun karangan Salwa,
Teringat tah jua malam BruoNZ di negara tercinta.

Hari berganti bulan semester 2 tiba kini,
BASS family pun sudah bertambah ahli,
Ada baiknya berkumpul sesama kitani,
Dapat jua mengeratkan tali silaturrahmi.

16hb Ogos hari dipilih,
Hari Ahad pukul 2 jangan salah tarikh,
Kepada Ka Suh diucap terima kasih,
Pasal sudi menjadi host tanpa dalih.

Berkumpul saja memang inda cukup,
Kalau nada makanan kan disumbat ke mulut,
Jadinya biskita kami jemput,
Membawa makanan minuman sedikit pun cukup.

Sibuk atu perkara biasa,
Apatah lagi senior final year,
Tapi datang sekajap pun inda apa,
Asalkan kitani dapat berkumpul bersama.

Pantun ani berakhir di sini,
Jangan lupa pasal gathering ani,
Insyallah dengan izin Ilahi,
Berjumpa jua kitani di sana nanti.

And macam biasa.. Please let us know what you're bringing in the comment box :)
