07/08/2010: A Taste of Singapore

Some might dread the start of school. But to some of us, a new term signals a whole new batch of exchange students coming into NUS!

Some of us managed to get in touch with a couple of Korean exchange students from various Korean universities such as Korea University, Seoul National University and KAIST. We brought them around some tourist spots such as Chinatown and Fort Canning, and introduced them to local delights – Bak Kut Teh and Chicken Rice. Oh and we told them all about the latest craze to hit our shoes – KOI Bubble Tea too!

Photos will be up in a bit!

To the members that helped us on that day, thank you very much. And to the Koreans that joined us, we hope you enjoyed yourselves and we definitely look forward to meeting up with you all even after school starts! (:
