- vacations and holidays for the 18-35 year olds

During school holidays, travel overseas to attend courses...
At the same time, take it like a vacation to explore the country...

When I graduate from school, this is one of the things I plan to do - Travel. To see the world!

I'm always happy when I'm near water.

I love to swim, sail or boat on holidays.
I'm attracted to water.

I'm not very adventurous where new places are concerned,
so I normally keep visiting the same destination over and over.

Aim to: Go for an adventure
- find a new destination/ place to go to

Four travel options for me, after my studies:
1. Work & Travel USA
allows students to live in USA for (min) 2 or 2 1/2 months up to (max) 4 months,
while taking up employment to cover travelling expenses.
An additional 30 days of optional traveling time is given to students.
International students from all over the world come together in USA for an unforgettable summer. This program creates the opportunity for cultural exposure and international work experience.
Get to work in places such as US Theme Parks, National Parks.
Work & Travel USA is available only once a year in Singapore for the summer vacation from late April/May through to September.
2. Join Youth Expedition Programme (YEP)
3. Participate in overseas competition
4. Just travel

Valentine Greetings!

"Love is simple yet addictive"

Looking at the moon,
I'm thinking of u.
On this lovely nite,
I wish u sweet dreams
and a lovely GD nite. ;)

Send your Hearts or Roses for yr Valentine:
make your own origami hear or roses...

From Cancerians point of view,

I'm continually pulled into romance
with those who are quite opposite to me in nature.

I'm strongly attracted to people who are confident, strong and successful.

Although I fall in love all the time,
my introvert nature and my uneasiness in disclosing my true feelings
makes many of these affairs one-sided.

I'm not likely to rush headlong into marriage,
because in selecting a life partner,
I'll be most likely governed by my head.

Good partners for Cancerians: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces

Nevertheless, love for a stable home and loyalty towards the spouse
will reward the majority of Cancerians with a reasonably happy married life.

I attend to domestic chores cheerfully,
take a keen interest in the children. and
believe in saving for the rainy day.

I love my home, it is where I feel most secure.

Like Sagittarians there is a place for everything,
but the Cancerians idea is -- it just does not matter where
it is put as long as it's somewhere, under the bed, in cupboards, up in
the attic, the garage; not that you are not untidy -- you are the original
hoarder and for some it can take a while getting used to this.


Note to self - Self-expression: Tell someone how you REALLY feel today.

Just like the phases in a Product Life Cycle (introduction; growth; maturity; decline),
a Relationship goes through different stages
(1. Meeting,
2. The Chase,
3. Honeymoon,
4. Comfortable,
5. Tolerance,
6. Downhill,
7. Breaking up).
The length you stay at each stage varies. The decisions you made change the stage you're in. Not all relationships go through each stage.

We will also help to answer any queries that you may have pertaining to your degree programme. You may choose to attend two briefings if you have opted for a double-degree programme.

    We will also give you an idea of what BOSS is.
    BOSS is short for “Bidding Online SyStem”. This is a unique system that allows you to bid for your courses using “e-dollars”. As part of our scheme to mould you into smart business leaders of the future, we have created an on-line system for course registration that uses the bidding process.

    SMU Convocation 2007
    18 Aug 2007
    Suntec City Convention Hall 602
    Unlike conventional interpretation of "Convocation" to denote "graduation" at other local universities, SMU's Convocation is basically a large assembly celebration to mark the start of a journey, your journey through SMU, at that.

    On hand to welcome you into the SMU family will be the Chancellor, the President of SMU, the Board of Trustees, the Deans, faculty, staff and seniors.

    Our previous Convocation ceremonies have always been memorable for all and promise to be dignified yet energetic.

    At SMU, parents and guardians of students are regarded as an integral part of the university so we'd like you to invite them to celebrate the beginning of your journey with us.

    To all you freshmen, be prepared for the pomp and gaiety that SMU's largest and most talked about event will bring as you begin a new chapter in your life!

    VIVACE 2007 – CCA Fair
    Friday, 24 August, 2007

    The first university-wide event to greet all students at the start of the academic term! VIVACE is organised by the SMU Students' Association (SMUSA) for all freshmen to participate and be engaged in a fun-filled day of activities that will allow them to witness the vibrant student life in SMU as well as to interact with their seniors.

    So, come and experience it for yourself through all the carnivals, performances, games and competitions. All CCAs representing the arts, sports and community leadership will be on display to cater to your interests and talents.

    CCA Preferences
    UNSA-SMU/United Nations Students' Association makes members more aware of issues
    like peace, human rights, respect for international law, social progress and freedom.

    ART & Culture
    International Connections (Icon) helps to integrate SMU's local, international and
    exchange student community and celebrates cultural diversity. (2)
    • SMUSAIC is a club with a passion for photography, cinematography and digital media.
    • SMUX Biking Team caters to the needs of both new cyclists and regular bikers.
      We organised events of different levels of difficulty. (3)

    • SMUX Kayaking Team organises kayak expeditions, courses and white water rafting trips. (4)
      We are looking into other paddling-related activities like canoe polo and
      longer expeditions to destinations we have not ventured to, like the Southern Islands.

    All the Costs before even entering SMU

    I went for Pre-enrolment Medical Examination at Raffles Medical Group.
    The cost will be borne by the students.

    Local Students - S$18.00 (exclusive of 5% GST)
    After 1st July 2007, it's 7% GST.

    I went on 9th July 2007. It cost: S$19.25.
    They give u a small plastic bottle to fill-in yr urine. Then they take yr height, and weight. Followed by eye test, then colour vision test. Next, is Chest X-ray. Lastly, the doctor talk to u, take blood pressure, ask u breath-in, breath-out. Finally, he signs and stamp the document. Voila! The medical report is out.

    At SMU's website, it says, "3. You can collect your medical report and X-ray after 3 working days for local students."
    But I got it on the day itself, no waiting for 3 days. Very efficient.

    All local polytechnic students have to attend this English Language Workshop (ELW) Waiver Test. It is to determine if they need to attend the 35-hr ELW. S$26.25 (inclusive of GST)

    Took the test on 10 July, 4pm. Didn't do very well (esp. basic cloze test: fill-in-the-blanks passage), but tried my best by filling-in all possible answers.

    I got my ELW Waiver Test result on 16 July.
    This is to inform you that on the basis of your ELW Waiver Test results, you will need to attend the English Language Workshop (ELW).

    Guess my English needs some brushing up.
    And I have to pay the course fee of S$200 (inclusive of GST) for the workshop.

    Polytechnic Graduates: Exemption for Internship Programme (dated: 06/20/2007)

    As a polytechnic graduate at Temasek Polytechnic, I had participated in some form of business attachment programme at Standard Chartered Bank, during my course of study, Diploma in Business IT.

    SMU would be glad to consider granting partial or full exemption to the Internship Programme requirement (10 weeks). Just provide some documentation from the institution on the duration of your previous training attachment.

    Submit such documents no later than 30th April 2008,
