Someone tagged me in FB about this picture so i think i have this responsibility to give awareness to new students and existing students about this if you have not known yet.
From the statements above, it states that any employees of the company (Petronas in this case) are not allowed to marry any of the Petronas scholars, otherwise one of them have to resign, resign + pay back the sponsorship, or anything like that.
I could forsee this kind of Q&A before relationship:
A: I like you, do you want to be my gf/bf?
B: Are you a petronas scholar?
A: Yes, i'm.
B: Sorry. Bye
In my opinion, this is a really pathetic rule. Nevermind that we have limited entertainments due to the strategic locations and so much of restrictions on activities that we could actually carry out. It's fine that you set a few new rules about entering to the library. But this? This is some kind of enforcement to the students not to get into any relationship during the studies here, which 50% of them might ended up marrying each other. Not that I'm encouraging the students to date or what but from what i know, the scholars will eventually enter into Petronas as employee. No? Not allow to marry to any colleagues? WTF. Where are we suppose to meet people if not in university or working area?
I'm not desperado. I hope you understand what i'm trying to say here.
Come on, it's a just a scholarship / sponsorship, why so much limitations eh? It's kinda suffocating actually to think about it. Hmmm.... What's say you?
