New Year promises a new beginning. What dreams and wishes do you have for the Year of the Snake? Check out what our colleagues and students have to say.
I hope colleagues and students can work together to complete the relocation to the new campus smoothly. I also hope everyone can take some time out of their busy schedules for their family.
Watt Master of the Pearl Jubilee College
Living in Macau means two new years—the Western and Chinese. This allows two sets of wishes. The first is for the exciting and positive formation of several new residential colleges that will give UM students an enriching and exciting university experience. The second is for a more peaceful world, especially in Syria and Afghanistan.

Get to know Asian culture better. Make new friends. Start a company!
Zhang Year-2 student of accounting, FBA
Maya people’s miscalculation kept the whole world in dread for a time, but it also delivered a surprise gift of “rebirth” to everyone. On the prophesied doomsday, I returned to Macao from Beijing, where the snowy night made me convinced that tomorrow would not be the end of the world, but rather another beautiful day full of hope and promise.
Udani Assistant professor of management,
The New Year is a good occasion to renew our commitment to love and serve our family, friends and neighbours. May we, with our whole heart & mind, be “sowers of peace & joy”. God bless!
Chen Administrative assistant of Centre

The happiest thing for me in 2012 was that I got a little rounder. I look forward to the addition of a new member in my family in 2013. I wish my family lots of happiness and health.
Keng Pan Professor of Chinese, FSH
I want to thank UM for nurturing me into the first local professor of the Department of Chinese.
I want to thank the Macao SAR government for awarding me the Medal of Cultural Merit.
I will continue to make my humble contributions to UM and the Macao society with a grateful heart.

(On the threshold of a new year, which is very important for the University of Macau, I wish all colleagues and students success, happiness, health, joy and peace.)
Terry Lam Acting

I wish everyone more joy, less worries, and lots of health and peace in 2013!
Emily Wu Year-3
student of psychology, FSH
How time flies! I’ll be celebrating my third Chinese Spring Festival since I started university. The longer I’m away from home, the more I realise how much I love my family. No one can ever replace them in my heart. The Chinese Spring Festival is a rare opportunity for family reunion. I feel awkward about telling my family face-to-face about how much I love and appreciate them, so I want to say it through My UM—I love you. I hope everyone’s dream comes true in the New Year. I wish UM more successes. I love UM.
Rachel Li Year-3
student of English, FSH
New Year’s coming! I’m graduating!
I hope everything goes well in the New Year. I will give my best at everything I do and try to slowly figure out what I want to do with my life.
2013, I’m coming!
Lei Chin Pang Senior
instructor of communications, FSH
The journey of studies, like the journey of life, has so much more to offer than meets the eye. I wish every fellow student an endless expanse of stunning views along the way, and I also hope everyone enjoys the inevitable detours and setbacks that may bring refreshing surprises in the end.
Helena Tan Secretary
to Dean, FLL
I open the new calendar and hear the relentless rhythm of the train of life roaring forward. Why don’t we smile off our needless worries, be true to ourselves and others, and enjoy the journey to the fullest?
Director of the Communications Office
The new campus relocation is just around the corner. Hope we can embrace the challenge together, good communication will go a long way.
May everyone’s dreams, published here or cherished in the heart, all come true in the Year of the Snake!
