23rd MAY 2017 ~ The Angklung Group of SMK Taman Universiti was invited to perform during a dinner function organized by the Faculty of Computing, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). The event was in conjunction with ICT International Project Conference and was held at a restaurant named Malay Village in town. The arrangement was made in just about a week but the boys were lucky as they did not have any exam the following day because the school was having its Teacher's Day celebration. I was glad all the 15 of them could make it so we just needed a short practice session before the real performance.

in a group and
to sit at the back of the bus
