Wondering why our concept for this term is Bamboo? Bamboo (AKA Buluh in malay) represents good luck and wealth that stem from the plant’s rapid growth and long life. Bamboo is a symbol of virtue and it reflects people’s souls and emotions. But as undergraduates students, Dependability in a bamboo actually symbolizes the strength that every student should have, in that students should be prepared mentally and physically to face the world which is full of challenges.

As most of us are aware of, the bamboo cannot live on its own. It generally grows in clusters, and this reflects us. We don’t face university life alone. Many others are experiencing it with us, including our family members and friends. This indicates harmony in life and the bonds formed with each other.

Bamboo also symbolizes the strength of relationship. The bamboo shoots need each other in whatever situation and this shows the high spirit of teamwork. This is an attitude that every undergraduate should have at the university. Instead of only depending on one’s self, we must learn to rely on each other as a community. In the end, this is one of the most important lessons that we can learn as a student in Universiti Brunei Darussalam and as a part of an association, Persatuan Mahasiswa/I Universiti Brunei Darussalam.

Hope you are ready mentally for what is about to come in the upcoming Freshers’ Week🙂 Set your goals early and your patience through out Freshers Week will be highly appreciated.🙂

Sekian Harap Maklum

Regards,
Majlis Perwakilan Pelajar UBD 2012-2013
