One of my favourite numbers from the Sing, City! 2 musical composed, written and performed by the Singaporean students University of Pennsylvania.
This song is call Sekali I. Also wins points for the use of "Cockanaden" in the lyrics. Very steady bom pi pi.

... a very small portion of the human chain that over 30,000 youth from 53 schools in Singapore had formed around central Singapore, like Ang Mo Kio, Yio Chu Kang, Bishan, Toa Payoh and even a bit of the Kallang River.

There was a strong feeling of wanting to remove Singaporean students from the hostels, to accomodate all the IS. Yes, IS are poor things, far from the comfort of their families. However, we locals are already suffering so much to accomodate you guys!
2-year protection. Tuition grant for everyone. Fully-paid scholarship with no bond (funded by our income tax, GST and ERP), just work in Singapore for 3 years. Less hostel rooms for locals. NOT TO MENTION, THE NEGATIVE EXTERNALITIES WHEN U TALK AROUND LOUDLY AND DIRTY OUR HOSTELS' TOILETS WITH YOUR THIRD-WORLD HYGIENE HABITS.
Singapore is already becoming a place by the foreigners, of the foreigners, and for the foreigners. What else you want? First, chase us out of OUR hostel to let YOU stay. Second, speak in your accent so you can understand us? Third, clean our toilets so YOU can dirty them?

[pu2]: the simpler story said:
Just like last semester, this semester witnesses students trying to get comfortable in their studies. Some students bring in pillows to accommodate the need for power naps or plain creature comfort. Some go a bit further by actually bringing in sleeping bags or mattresses since they see inefficiency in the need to go back home just to sleep. Of course to protect the rather astronomical logistical effort that they have gone through, students will put signs on the door to stop others from occupying the room.

But, tell me, how is a typical Singaporean undergrad in Engineering going to get decent grades with all overwhelming numbers of foreign scholars/students? From my estimation, there's probably only 40% of Singaporeans, and the rest are largely, from a 'upcoming Asian nation'. And they're really clever, or hardworking, or both.

Justin gives some examples why students from private Universities are shortchanged compared to those from local Universities.
The government has always been encouraging its people to seek higher education, but why is there certain biasness towards local university students and private university students? I am a full time student from the Singapore Institute of Management, and even though this private institution is widely recognised in Singapore, we are shortchanged of certain privileges that other local university students enjoy.

Pupils visit Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve and attend training by Sungei Buloh Officers on the identification of birds and bird census. Subsequently, the pupils make a few trips to Sungei Buloh to count the bird population. The data collected is recorded and updated on the website after each visit to the wetland, especially during the migratory season.

So you heard it here first: get your ass down to Victoria Junior College on Saturday. The college is hosting its annual Open House, so it'll be open to visitors anyway. But regardless of whether you have any interest in that, come down, find your way to the container classrooms (ask a student to point you in the right direction) and have a look at these incredible pieces of art. Be reminded, as I was, of how much vision, energy and talent young artists can have.

A couple of weeks ago (yes, this is how backdated this blog can get) I went to a screening by the graduating class of the Ngee Ann Polytechnic Film, Sound & Video department. To be completely honest, I went there without any high hopes. After all, said the snobbish elitist in me, I was from Northwestern University's Radio/TV/Film department. It's going to be hard to find student film that matched up to those I'd seen.
How can we get access to watch NP graduates student film har?
