This sports carnival was held at University Malaya on 16 March 2013 as annual sports for dental students. The host was selected by meeting between the representatives from each university. This event was organized to build up sportsmanship quality and spirit among dental students in Malaysia.This events also encourage dental students to compete with each other not merely in education but also in co-curriculum. It can be a platform to strengthen relationship between different universities and share knowledge among dental students.
18th-19th May of 2013 was the date the expedition began, and also Hutan Lipur Gunung Senyum was our final decision after Gua Tempurung which we could not get over there due to the date was not suit with the time. Frankly, I was glad that we chose Gunung Senyum because we really enjoyed our weekend to the heart contents there. At first, I was afraid that this expedition may not run as planned and the participants might get disappointed with it but then nothing more better than this!
