SMU Truly Malaysia
Truly Malaysia aims to connect Malaysians in SMU and serve as a home away from home for Malaysians. We also celebrate and share the Malaysian culture and spirit.
The CCA organises activities that allow Malaysians to bond and network with one another. We also aim to spread the knowledge of the rich and diverse culture that Malaysia has with non-Malaysians in school.

"Truly Malaysia has really fun events throughout the year with lots of great prizes up for grab every time! I made quite a few friends from TM too ~ reconnecting with my fellow home townies."
- Lim Qian Ying, Honorary Finance Secretary, School of Business, Year 4
"Joining Truly Malaysia is a great way to learn more about Malaysia — its amazing food, cities, dialects and so much more! From pineapple baking workshops to Instagram challenges, there's a plethora of fun and enriching events that has given me a much deeper appreciation of the Malaysian culture."
- Xing Mei, Honorary General Secretary, School of Social Sciences, Year 3

Yes! Members can be of any nationality and background as long as you are interested in learning about the Malaysian culture!
Pre COVID, TM had fun trips to different cities in Malaysia in the previous years. You will be notified through email if Truly Malaysia organises any overseas trips, but the current situation is subjected to the school's and government's safety regulations regarding overseas travels due to COVID-19.
Great question. Some of the signature events that we organise are Pineapple Tart Baking workshops during Chinese New Year, Food Trails, and more to come! Thus, you will get to experience and learn about Malaysia's colourful culture through aspects like [and not limited to] food and travel.
