Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2014

Good Day everyone!

Start the countdown everyone....Hari Raya is just around the corner!!

IEM YES would like to extend our wishes to all Muslims

"Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri"

It will be a long holiday for most of us. Here are some tips to KEEP YOUR HOME SAFE ON VACATION.

1. Ask a friend to help
    - Seek for a friend or watchful neighbor to keep on eye of your house.

2. Stop Newspaper delivery
    - Stop order on mail and newspapers or arrange to have a friend or neighbor pick up your mail while        you're away. Letters piled up on your front step could signal to criminals that you are out of town.

3. Pull the plug 
    - Unplug your television, computer, toaster oven and other appliances to protect them from power surges. 

4.  Remove Your Spare Key
     - If a criminal figures out you're away on vacation, it's likely that he or she will check your porch for a spare key. So remove your spare key before you leave on your vacation.

5.  Clean your house before you leave!
    - Truthfully, it was a serious mistake not to. Nothing is worse than coming home to a house with dust bunnies and clothing in the kitchen. Cleaning your house includes the fridge and the dustbin. Who wants to go into the house with weird smells & cockroaches??! yikes!!

IEM Engineers Run 2013

In conjunction with IEM Engineering Week 2013, The Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (IEM) has decided to organize Engineer’s Run 2013 once again to kick start IEM Engineering Week 2013 on the 7th September 2013 at Dataran MBPJ. This year’s edition shall be the continuation of last year event, looking to unite all engineers together through sports; with the aim of promoting a healthy lifestyle among engineers and creating awareness of the engineering profession to the public

Approximately 400 IEM members and non-members responded positively towards this event by participating in the run. This year’s run received overwhelming responses from both the engineers and public thus expanding the categories into eight from last year’s six. In addition, a new breakthrough was achieved where the institution also received bulk registration from companies.

On 7th September 2013, organizing committees and volunteers from Runner’s Malaysia arrived early in the morning to prepare for the big day before the runners’ arrival. The volunteers took up their respective responsibilities as route marshals, time keepers, checkpoint officers, beverages distributors, secretariat and crowd control personnel.

Participants register as early as 6.30am
At 7.00 a.m., the crowd started to appear. Some participants came in fancy costumes aligned with the best engineer’s costume competition such as a lady who came dressed in safety vest and helmet. The event also saw family participation in support of their family members who are engineers while some group took the effort to wear team uniform for the run. After the registration, everyone gathered to do some warm-up exercise prior to the race.

IEM President, Ir. Choo Kok Beng officially flagged off the start of the race on 7.30 a.m. together with the organizing committee. As soon as the starter’s gun went off, the participants began their 3.6-kilometre and 6.5-kilometre run respectively. In about 13 minutes, our fastest runner came into sight with a broad grin on his face. It was pretty amazing that he managed to complete the race within such a short time. Again, it shows that engineers are good sportsmen too.

Some very sporty families came with their kids and even a toddlers. This is the spirit that the organizing committee wishes to see whenever they organize such event. The sight of parents running while pushing the strollers with their toddlers in them had really made the run more eventful than it already was.

Most of the participants were gathered back at the finishing point after approximately 45 minutes. After such a long run, it was the time for the refreshments to be served as participants filled up their tummies while networking with one another. The emcee also had a good interaction with the crowd before our guests of honour gave their speeches

Both Ir. Prof. Dr. Wan Mahmood Bin Wan Abdul Majid and Ir. Choo Kok Beng were invited to officiate the launching of the Engineering Week 2013 after delivering their respective inspirational speeches.

The pinnacle moment of the event was of course the prize giving ceremonies. Three grand prizes were given away to three participants with the best engineer’s costume of the day. The ceremony was followed by presentation of prizes to the top 3-5 finishers of each category. Last but not least, a group picture was taken to commemorate the memorable moments for every proud finisher of this event with the guest of honours.

Of course, many more pictures were taken subsequently especially the finishers with their glorious medals and other funkier ones amongst the participants to mark the end of a successful run. The other climax of the day is the lucky draw announcements where participants were eagerly hoping for their numbers to be called. Amongst the lucky draw prizes were Beats by Dr. Dre’s Headphone, New Balance Bag, Adidas Push Up Bars, Nike Shoe Bag etc.

Cute photo of 3 runners. It looked as if they were floating!
Overall, everything went smoothly and ended on time. All the participants had a fun time perspiring and networking. IEM is one step closer towards our goal of making the run an annual event with the 2nd edition this year. The organizing committee has made several improvements based on the comments and suggestions received last y

ear. We look forward to receiving more constructive comments and assistance in making the run even more successful in the coming years. It would be very encouraging to see IEM members getting involved in such events with their families to build a stronger bond amongst members.
The organizing committee would like to take this opportunity to thank the IEM Excomm. Members, the IEM Council Members, the Standing Committee on Welfare and Service Matters, the IEM Secretariat, Sin Chew Daily and all other sponsors whom have made this event a successful one. Feel free to visit Engineering Week 2013 website at and for more of the event’s photos and info.
