Since a few days ago, Hafiz , Shakira , Bell , Wani , and Farrah , came to Pontianak Post daily newspaper, and I received them in 5th floor together with secretary to Editor in Chief, Mrs Silvina.  I did not aware of them because of , as usual , Editor In Chief always inform me about any guest in which planned to visit the Pontianak Post

I decided to welcome them in the guest room and in a very short time we have had very cool chat with them in which delivering laugh , and also humor as well.  As the leader of the group, Mr Hafiz , introduced himself and also his group member.  Finally, I knew they were students from Universiti Malaysia Perlis or UNIMAP. 

For me personally, receiving guest from Malaysia as something I have been engaged doing since a few years ago when I was still working at one of internet cafes in Pontianak. When I was still at university student, I took many chances of welcoming students guest from Malaysia such as Institute of Mara Sarawak (ITM), University Utara Malaysia (UUM) and many other Malaysia's universities.

The total of UNIMAP students are about 13, and those students are part of International Exchange Student (IES) program between Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UNIMAP) and University of Tanjungpura (UNTAN).  Those about 13 UNIMAP Students that have been residing and received at the University of Tanjungpura (UNTAN) since a few days ago.  Those UNIMAP students will complete the programs in the following weeks, and should be finished on about August 22nd.

The five of the UNIMAP Students, Hafiz, Belinda, Shakira, Farah and Wani , have been received at Pontianak Post daily newspaper office residing at Jalan Gajah Mada Pontianak.
