What's up with AJs? Almost every year without fail, there's at least 1 scholar from AJ who despise Singapore so much... Maybe it's the hostel condition... I dunno...
I would say my 8 months of stay in Singapore has taught me lots of great stuffs, and helped me to look up again on the role of teachers, something which you can't do in Malaysia... The teachers there are really industrious, and are more than willing to help us out. In fact, they are much more dedicated than the teachers in Malaysia.
And the school admins in JCs put their trust on the student bodies to run most of the events in the school. This is important as we need to learn how to shoulder heavy responsibilities and ensure the events run smoothly.
Life in Singapore no doubt is really demanding, but if you know how to survive, then it is very rewarding. Remember, life in Singapore is not only about mugging round the clock. Go out to the beach (ECP), Orchard Road, Suntech, and blah blah... There are other fun things to do... even 28 hours a day for me won't be enough. There are so many things to be done, and i haven't got the time to do so.
