Sometime in the middle of the night the family noticed that she would sit alone in the kitchen or living room and seem to be talking to somebody. At time the rest of the family members heard a voice sounds like a man spoken from her mouth, but they were not certain with what they heard and suspected that she might have come in contact with some “dirty things”.

IZ Reloaded posts a video of the interview given by David Widjaja's father and brother...
In summary, both the father and brother strongly believe that David would not kill himself and that he wasn't stressed because his scholarship was terminated, adding that the family can afford to pay for his studies. They also said that they were not allowed to view his body immediately and when they did, they could only view his head and neck - the rest of the body was covered in plastic.

Singapore Delivery points us to a website that rated NUS and NTU among the top universities in the world.
US News & World Report just came out with its rankings of the best universities in the World. NUS is ranked No. 4; and NTU No. 12. Singapore’s got the world’s best universities! Aren’t you proud?

The Online Citizen said:
After much negotiation between the paper’s teacher-advisors and the university, NTU president Su Guaning gave the article the go-ahead. However, he changed his mind at the last minute, and the article was removed just one day before the newspaper’s publication on Monday (15th September). Many of the student editors at the Chronicle were clearly indignant when they learnt about this.

SGFRAG posted an email written by an NTU student expressing drop in education standard at NTU.
Dear Chan Kwong Lok,
I writing this email to you to express my personal opinion in an informal and frank manner.
Firstly, I feel that there isn’t a need to charge additional fees for students attempting special terms. The cost of $500 for a Singapore citizen is extremely high given the economic conditions now (cost of inflation and so on). OAS claims that it is for the provision of higher quality of education in NTU. If a fee needs to be charged, can it be made lower and more affordable?
Here are some queries that I have with regards to the above issue
Why is it that only that minor in entreprenuership is not covered?
What about other minor programmes?
Why must students taking special term be penalised economically?
and enquiries to new “real estate” developments in NTU. Why is it that the prices of food in the new food court so high? Why are we bringing in outlets like old chang kee and sakae sushi when our own library expansion project is delayed?

The short films on this site were created in our Digital Film Production course from August to November, 2006. The students filmed at the abandoned Police Headquarters building at Pearl's Hill in central Singapore over two weekends.

Alas, in the end we witnessed randomness taking victims when some smart students ended up jobless at the end of this phase. The rest of the have-nots, on the other hand, was able to feel slightly better as “that dude also hasn’t got a job”.

It seemed impossible, but she was right. There was nothing available. The night before I left, the agent called to tell me she had found two hotel rooms; one was $600 a night and the other $100 a night. Of course, I took the $100 option. I didn’t think I could explain $600 on my expense account.
The next morning I flew into Singapore, grabbed a taxi at the airport and showed the driver the address of the hotel. He looked at the address, looked at me, shrugged, pushed his foot on the accelerator and headed into town.

As the exam period descends upon NTU, many students will come to school early and wait for the libraries to open their doors. Once the doors open, they'll rush in and secure seats for themselves, so that they can mug in peace for the rest of the day.

If you like tea, bring it with you. Weighs nothing in your backpack and is worth lots because in Singapore you will mostly only find green tea...(Bring) Condoms (those in the southeast asian region are mostly too small and notoriously unreliable).

Stephy talks about the NTU Freshmen Orientation Camp and also puts up photos taken during the programme.
Later that night, we held a Fright Night and I was in charge of their Make Up~...Seriously speaking I'm still a little disturbed even since the SBS camp's Fright Night. I didn't really had the guts to go through another round of 'frightening' but I decided to give it a try to see how good their performances were. I think I was the only one who went in and took pictures. Thankfully I didn't take anything 'dirty'.

I was at NTUC, which is kind of a nationalised supermarket chain here. Yes, really. NUTC is the National Trade Union Congress (and a 4LA, incidentally), although in reality it seems to be an organisation dedicated to keeping workers under control and docile, as opposed to the usual "we're out lads!" function of a normal trade union whereby they actually represent workers' interests to the management. And they have so many different commercial operations that it functions more like a business enterprise than any union I have ever seen.
Expat's take on the NTUC and its many fingers and pies.
