about us BADAN HAL EHWAL ISLAM DAN PEMBANGUNAN INSAN VICTORIA (EHSAN)

Badan Hal Ehwal Islam dan Pembangunan Insan, or more commonly known as EHSAN, is a registered student organisation closely affiliated to Education Malaysia and Malaysia Students’ Council of Australia (MASCA). As one of the main student representatives in Victoria, EHSAN actively works to serve the interest of more than 10000 Malaysian students, as well as the broader Muslim community in general. Strongly guided by our vision to ‘Engage, Educate and Empower’, our work primarily aims to promote continuous interaction and intermingling between the various Malaysian Student Organisations and Malay Organisations in Victoria, as seen through our collaborations with them in hosting large scale events such as our annual MWBBQ and Mega Raya Melbourne. Our newly introduced event, the Ehsan Aspiration Summit (EAST) - to be held for the first time this year - would now join our record as an event that will greatly serve as a medium for students to engage, learn and contribute to highly intellectual discussions revolving around all sorts of issues, which we believe would empower and prepare students for life beyond academic walls.

KELAB UMNO MALAYSIA MELBOURNE (KUAM) Established in 1988 as a non-profit organisation, Kelab UMNO Australia Melbourne (KUAM) caters for the social and welfare aspects of Malaysian communities and students in Victoria, Australia. Since then, KUAM aimed to foster closer ties between the Malaysian communities regardless of race, religion and background. KUAM believes in maintaining a harmonious and unified Malaysia in Melbourne through organising various activities intended to bring Malaysians together. We always welcome contributors and volunteers to help out with all the events that we organise in collaboration with other Malaysian Students Organisations (MSO).

VENTUREctoria

Vi

Great Ocean Road Definitely one of the best places in the continent or even the world (as one of us would claim!). Comprised of two national parks (Port Campbell National Park and Great Otway National Park), you can now explore the place where the forest meets the ocean. 8

Wilsons Promontory National Park A place in isolation where the mountains meet the ocean! Famous for its very own 90-mile beach, there are just so much more to explore! On a side note, this national park particularly requires you to apply for a permit to stay overnight.

Puffing Billy Puffing Billy is Australia’s premier preserved steam railway and operates everyday except Christmas Day! Step back in time whilst dangling your legs over the side of the train carriage, through the magnificent Dandenong Ranges (from Belgrave to Gembrook – 5 stops), located only one hour east of Melbourne.


Phillip Island Grampians National Park Explore the highland of Victoria through long walks and hikes along eucalyptus and paperbarks on rocky mountains while you enjoy the view. For a fairytale-ish, gloomy and foggy vibe, it’s nice to be there in autumn.

Your best buddies (kangaroos, wallabies, koala) are waiting for you here in the Phillip Island Wildlife Park! Show your friends and family in Malaysia your experience in getting to interact, feed and taking photos with them closely. As you heading back to the city, don’t forget to catch the beautiful sunset at The Nobbies, while enjoying the amazing view of the ocean.

Mount Buller Visit Mt Buller if you don’t wanna miss out the chance to experience playing and making a snowman, alongside other activities such as skiing, snowboarding, toboggan and others! An easy three-hour drive from Melbourne, Mt Buller is the most accessible alpine resort in Australia, which will definitely give you a memorable experience as an overseas student. 9


Green Refectory, Brunswick Famous for the lovely vibe and affordable pastries and desserts! As it’s located at Sydney Road, they are quite concerned about the ingredients in the food they serve. So, to my Muslim friends, don’t hesitate to ask! This actually applies to other cafes too. You can simply just enquire about the ingredients they serve. Most of them will be aware of this issue as Aussies are generally health conscious about their diet. It’s normally full house, but it shouldn’t be a long wait to get a seat. 10

Pidapipo, Lygon Street

Definitely one of the go-to gelato place in Melbourne. And the good news is, it’s only 5-10 min walk from unimelb if you’re up for a random ‘getaway’ after a stressful day at uni.

Sydney Road This is one of the few places to get your supply of halal poultries in Melbourne. There are also Coles and an asian grocery at Barkly Sq, and Aldi nearby. Basically, you can get pretty much what you need if you’re here looking to fill your pantry or even your tummy.


Brother Baba Budan, Little Bourke Street Degraves Street An artsy place; famous for its very own local art products, small galleries along sidewalks and little, authentic coffee shops. It’s a must go! It’s quite hidden along Flinders St, so make sure you don’t miss the junction.

Flinders Lane A short stretch of coffee shops and cafes which gives you an insight of what Melbourne CBD is like, with a bit of combination with Europe or New York. You will admit that Melbourne is one of the great coffee cities.

For a hard core coffee lover, this is an accidental found; hence, love at first sight. If you know where Blok M is, there shouldn’t be a problem looking for this cafe. It’s always full house there. On a side note, they use the same beans as Seven Seeds at Berkeley St, which is just a short walk from the Faculty of Business and Economics, unimelb. 11


food HUNTz Little Ipoh, La Trobe St.

This Malay cuisine restaurant is undoubtedly famous among Malaysians as well as locals. The restaurant also will occasionally prepared a special menu (Nasi Dagang, Nasi Kerabu etc) during weekends.

Nasi Lemak House, Grattan St.

This hawker-style Malaysian food provides the best Nasi Lemak in town! You can also order other variety of ‘fried menu’. The best part is that the restaurant provides delivery service.

Papparich, QV Square

This well-known restaurant located in one the biggest mall in the city, provides a variety of Malaysian food.

Norsiah Kitchen, Swanston St.

This restaurant which is literally 5-10 minutes walk from the University of Melbourne; is one of the main restaurants among students. With an affordable price and a plentiful food on plate, it is definitely worth it. 12

F.A.Q As a muslim, how about my religion there? Is there anything I need to worry about? ' Worry not, mostly people here in Australia really respect each other. So far, we did not hear any reports about anything as in assault etc. But if anything happened in the university which is unlikely, you can report it directly to the security officers and they will raise more awareness and do more frequent rounds. One more thing about university, if you are going back from the library at night and feel afraid to walk alone, you can have a security officer to accompany you to a safer place where you can go.

If I craving for Malaysian foods which are unavailable at the restaurants, where can I get the ingredients to make them myself? Ask from Malaysian Hall. No, just kidding

y

There are a few Asian supermarkets around Melbourne. Some are Minh Phat Supermarket, Laguna Oriental Supermarket and Mix Oriental Supermarket and to make this short, you can just google it to find the supermarket on maps. There are also Asian section in their local supermarket so you can also buy them there.

What are the absolute must-do attractions/ experiences in the Melbourne region? u Melbourne’s huge amount of diversity and wide number of cultural attractions and landmarks makes recommending any single thing to see or do difficult, as it depends on your interests and age bracket.

24

Landmarks such as the Shrine of Remembrance, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Flinders Street Station and the Eureka Skydeck are all must-visits, there are multiple quality zoos and aquariums for the kids, the Queen Victoria Market and Chadstone Shopping Complex are retail hotspots, and numerous day trip destinations - such as Phillip Island, the Mornington Peninsula, Dandenong Ranges, and Yarra Valley - also beckon outside its borders.


I’ve heard about OSHC, what’s that? As an International Student, it is a condition of your student visa that you have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the entire duration of your stay in Australia. OSHC gives you access to out of hospital and in hospital medical services to help you maintain your health. Peace of mind accidents and illness do happen, with OSHC, you are covered! (Source: https://www.oshcallianzassistance.com.au/) So far that we know, OSHC cover all sort of medical process except dental and optometry. Find out more on the link given, they even have our national language, Malay in their FAQs section!

Can we students work as a part timer here in Melbourne? Yes of course you can. There are many part time jobs here in Melbourne. You just have to pick which one is suitable for yourself. You can work as a waiter at a restaurant, food deliverer (UberEats or Foodora), and even newspaper throwing from house to house. Its good to gain experience here and get to know their culture here. But bare in mind, our main concern here is to study and pass with flying colours, so do your best in both studying and working. If you cannot keep up working while studying, please focus only on studying.

h

I love to keep myself fit. Where can I do some sports, indoor and outdoor?

You can jog all around Melbourne except on the road.

If you want to play some court based sports, there are a few courts that students always go like Carlton Bath indoor court, Melbourne University court (which can be book at a very cheap price!) and basketball court at RMIT City Campus. You can also play sports at the parks around here such as frisbee, soccer or even ‘galah panjang’.
