I seemed to have distanced myself from blogging since I reached Singapore. It's not because I'm uninterested in blogging anymore, it's mainly due to the fact that there is too much to say, and too little time - and energy - to say it. Anyway, I'm already here. So, all of you out there, STOP WHINING!!! *lol*
My 3-week-experience in Singapore, or rather National University of Singapore, so far was not one that I could describe in words, because my English vocabulary SUCKS!!! But, I'll try my best not to bore everyone out by repeating the same adjectives for everything I did.
Unlike most of the other Malaysians I met in Singapore, I was not alone in the long and tiring 8-hours-trip down south to Singapore, alongside with me was 20 other creme de la creme Ipohians. But, what I had in common with them was, it was our first few times (as in first and second time) in Singapore.

New to the place, environment and society of Singapore, we joined the Undergraduate Freshmen Orientation (UFO) by the Malaysian Student League (MSL). MSL, also can be said as Malaysia So Lame, has certainly been a home away from home, as I managed to bond well with not only the other freshmen from an array of colourful background, interest and courses, but with some of the seniors as well.

Through the various activities held throughout UFO, I managed to fit in and settle in Singapore in minimum time. From trips to famous landmarks in Singapore, such as Sentosa Island and Marina Barrage, to organising events, for instance the Seniors Thanksgiving BBQ Party and the Bits and Bites Night, UFO is certainly fun and amazing. It's a platform for socialising with people that share the same tongue as me.
