Re: Hard being Malaysian Chinese

I don't agree with the article all that much. I feel it's a bit dramatised. Life here isn't that bad, really. I've been to Singapore for a stretch in NUS, I've relatives in Singapore and Australia....

Re: All About Admission Into NUS (2011/2012 Cohort)

Well, KenT13, that's undeniable. I'd still stick by my words, though. There's a huge element of luck that you can't plan for.

Re: All About Admission Into NUS (2011/2012 Cohort)

That sounds pretty much correct. Let me tell you things which are a bit more trivial, though.

NUS has a better debating club. NUS has a capoeira club. NTU has a more beautiful campus. Singaporeans...

Re: ReCom is dead everytime after everyone got their scholarship.

Every now and then, you'll get a query from someone else: How did you get your scholarship?, etc etc. Checking into ReCom after you get your scholarship is not a bad idea.

Re: Do you have an opinion? Debate Battle 2: Animal Abuse

Bump. I would suggest changing the topic if no-one is interested in this one. An alternative would be to have a second, more comprehensive look into the previous debate.

Re: Program penajaan tambahan JPA for 9A SPM 2007 leavers (Local universities)
