‘’Tonight’s Dream, Tomorrow’s Memory’’
It was indeed a memorable night of fun and laughter in the grand hall of OCD. It was the night of the 3rd Annual Grand Dinner of KOD. The highly anticipated event by fellow KOD-ians was held on Tuesday the 20th of May 2014. The theme, personally pick by our own lecturers was Oscar Night. FYI, an Oscar is an annual grand award ceremony to celebrate all the great actors and actresses for their work in the movies industry. Likewise this AGD, was to celebrate the whole KOD-ians for their effort and hard work throughout the year.
On the night of the event, everything from the photo booth, the red carpet, the dining hall was perfectly set up by the remarkable committees. Without their efforts, none of this would happen. The guests were consist of the students of KOD, from year 1 until year 5, the staffs and the lecturers. As expected on the red carpet, almost everyone dress up glamorously for the event. The brothers, with their usual formal attire in suits and vests while the sisters appeared gorgeously in the dazzling dresses. Even the lecturers did not miss out shinning the night in stunning attires.

The event started around 8.00 o’clock with the recitation of doa and the beautiful Quran recitation by our fellow Eximius member, brother Ajmal Hakim who is also our new batch leader. As part of being a Muslim, we need to balance both the worldly matters and the hereafter. Next is the speech by one of our Deputy Dean , D r Solachuddin. In his speech, he congratulated all the committees involved in making this possible. Dr. Solachuddin also did not forget to remind us to be prepared for the upcoming professional exam as it is just around the corner.

After the lovely speech, the event continued to the main agenda which is the dinner itself. To keep the guest entertained during the dinner, several performances and lucky draws were done. The performances were conducted by year 1 and year 4 as well as the year 5 as a special performance. The sisters of Eximius showed their skills in using cups with their own rendition of the cups’ song ‘When I’m Gone’ while the brothers with the Malay classics’ ‘Kau Ilhamku’. Year 4, or 4th Legacy, combined their full voice to perform ‘The Climb’ which was originally sang by the ex-princess of Disney, Miley Cyrus.

The special performance was a uniquely written poem by the 5th year combined with the melodic music of the keyboard. We were so lucky to get to know them; they are a group of very nice people with various personalities. We, Eximius the 7th batch of KOD, wanted to express our gratitude and appreciation for being such wonderful seniors. All the best seniors!

Back to the event, the lucky draws this year was pretty different as the draws were drawn by using computer software called, The Hat. The hat would randomly generate names of famous movie actors, actresses and movie title which were assigned to every guest upon registration.

The food of the night was pretty amazing. A set of Nasi Bukhara, with fried chicken and lamb curry, combined with a set of chicken and beef satay was mouth watering and to die for! There was also roasted lamb which was sponsored by our lovely Dr Basma. The dessert of the night? Pavlova, brownies, cendol and refillable ice cream!
