    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?!

    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.
