UUM ONLINE: Kuala Lumpur, 15 July - Academia Cafe & Bistro, Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), Kuala Lumpur campus, launched a new and improved menu featuring several new culinary delights at the cafe today.

In his speech, the Vice-Chancellor stated that the new dishes were launched at prices that were special, reasonable, and affordable.
