Unlike a Malaysian student in Australia who’s making headlines for her excessive shopping spree, 2 Malaysian students have been making better use of their time.

According to Bernama, the 2 students from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Skudai, had successfully reached the peak of the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest, yesterday at 11:45am.

They went to Tibet in April, and over there, they received the services of a Sherpa to guide them. They started the climb from Tibet, and began the ascent to the summit from Camp 3, at 11:45pm yesterday (Sunday),” he said in a statement.
