    People like to make a lot of noise while they're packing up just ask that others notice that they're leaving. Damn PRCs don't realize that even their whispering is loud.

    The most archaic university library I've ever seen. But all the kids from china think it's the most amazing thing they've ever seen. Haha. Chinese people.

    The receptionist at the entrance is a bitch. Don't forget to borrow your book before going out, if not you'll get booked by her. Like who wants to steal NUS books?!
