Do note, some comments from my screenshot above are deleted by TKL already. My point is Zan Thang's comment rude? Does he or anyone have the right to make and disagree with any other's view? And if one disagree, is that considered rude?

Or perhaps young people needs to be a Yes man and must go around agreeing with an elder man? In another Facebook post, Tan Kin Lian offered his advice for young people - be humble, show respect for other people, look for what to agree, rather than to disagree, be helpful. One follower of his, Kenneth, made a harmless comment but is soon labeled given a lecture for being ignorant. BTW, he is lucky not to be labeled as "sick" by TKL.


Thereafter in the same post, other readers started coming in to defend Kenneth.


I wonder who is the one not having an open mind.

NUS Summary

I shall now summarize the 2 short years of my life in NUS.

I knew life in NUS will be of few friends from my poly friends (girls) who enrolled before me. They told me it is always difficult to make new friends especially those from JCs. Those from JCs usually have their own usually big group of buddies and when come to forming groups for projects, they are always together. So, it is good to come in with someone whom you know of especially if you are from poly. I am from poly but I am the only one enrolling in year 2003/2004. Girls enrolled 1 year before me and all guys enrolled 1 year later than me because they choose not to disrupt from NS.

Pre-NUS
I conducted a medical checkup at NUS one hot afternoon. That was the first day I set foot on NUS. As required by NUS for all poly students, I took QET (Qualified English Test). I bumped onto a primary school friend, Francis. We lost contact after PSLE even though he lived just opposite my block. Francis was from NP. The paper was tough and as…
