Except in the instance of nuclear warfare
So in your opinion, soonalvin, UCL is not worth spending money on or going overseas for?
im at oxford now 2nd year if anyone needs anything pls ask, =]. just stumbled on this thread, never saw it in a year. heh.
soonalvin, no worries, I just wanted to know what you thought about UCL; I'm not defending it.
Happy National Day! lol. sorry to interrupt this post but I felt I had to say it.
I'll say it too... happy national day! I used to buy flags this time 8 years ago...
The parade was very specticular, with the military display and fireworks.
The fireworks seemed to be happening everywhere!
Did you guys get to watch it?
i missed the fireworks.. hehe, was distracted by dinner. oh wells, there should be a encore telecast next week or something right?
What! There were fireworks?? I only remember singing along to subtitles on tv. Was the military display by the NS people?
Was the fireworks THAT obscure??? How could two people miss the fireworks??
It seemed to be coming from everywhere. The main one was just behind the padang, and there was one at a distance, I think that was the marina south celebrations... And there were also fireworks all over Singapore in the heartlands... They were all syncronised to go off together...
And yup! the military display was done by the poor people serving their liability in the various units. You have no idea how much they sacrifice man! Just read a few blogs, and you'll get an idea of the agony behind organising such a large event by an organisation who's cheapest resource is manpower...
I'm not exactly in Singapore right now- separated by a bit of water. And I do hear people complaining about NS all the time. Thank goodness it's only for guys... by the way, did you apply to Cambridge for deferment straight after A levels?
My friend had his place deferred at Cambridge for two years instead of the usual one.
