I finally got my passport back on time...

I'm planning to go to Vietnam with Thomas during the recess week. Actually I can even say we WILL go to Vietnam because we've already booked the flights tickets. Doing the North Vietnam, Ha Long Bay, etc (I'll talk about that in another post). The problem with Vietnam is that you need to do a visa before arrival (actually you can also do one once there but it's highly recommended to do it before). To do so, you have to go the Vietnam embassy which is located on Leedon Park Street (go to Holland Village, look for Leedon road, walk... [Lire la suite]

Complaining about Yoha conditions

"Dear people from OSA, I contact you because I have just submitted my application for accommodation on-campus for semester 2 and I want to be sure that you will take care of it. I don't want to say that you haven't done it for my semester 1 application (I'm actually staying at Boon Lay, block 190, no AC), I just mean that most people actually staying in PGPR are staying there simply because they have been bugging you for a while. I'm french, this is not in our culture, this is not my culture, to bug people, to send dozens... [Lire la suite]

internet access denied

Since my arrival in Singapore, I've been struggling with Boon Lay's internet access every single day. Furthemore  more and more students settled in Boon Lay and now I think there are more than 200 people trying to get wireless access to internet. We've been complaining to OSA during weeks and finally someone from the service who provides internet access came to Boon Lay on Sunday. Poor guy, he was here to answer few people and every one what filling forms about what was wrong in their flat with internet access. Then he checked... [Lire la suite]

récupération de données et perte de temps

Je suis en ce moment même au IT Care et je récupère toutes les données que j'ai perdu ce week-end ce qui veut dire toutes les photos et documents administratifs que je stockais depuis 5ans... J'ai perdu toutes mes données en essayant d'installer Windows XP en plus de Vista sur mon pc, ce que j'ai réussi à faire. Le problème c'est que vu que mon ordinateur est sorti avec Vista il me manquait la moitié des drivers (carte wifi, ports USB,...). Je suis repassé sur Vista en utilisant le système de restauration de Packard Bell qui a... [Lire la suite]

new timetable

Today, I discovered that I had a clash between one of my course and a Lab session. I tought that my Lab were only scheduled on Monday but actually there are some sessions on Monday afternoon, Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon (it depends to which Lab pair you belong to). My lab pair was due to do all my Lab sessions on Monday but also on Thursday, precisely the day where I have one lecture in the department of Physics. I have been struggling for a week to get this particular module and now I was wondering if I will manage to keep... [Lire la suite]

Friday morning, fucking alam clock. It's 7am and I have to go to NUS to give them (MSE department) my transcripts.

Obviously he had arrived in Singapore only a few days ago.. Second step: go to MSE department... [Lire la suite]
