Not since Adrian Mole have the growing pains of a geeky teenager been so painfully exposed to the rest of us!

Quotes

    Suffian Hakimhas quoted7 years ago
    I’m finally in Singapore! It’s now 6.30 pm at Hua Zhong Hostel. I’m feeling miserable, lonely and lost. I’m staying in the hostel with other Malaysian students but we all attend Singaporean schools. Wish you were here as my roommate. I’ve just taken two photos of my room to show you what it looks like. The left half of the room is mine. The other side belongs to a Sec 2 ASEAN scholar named Nicole, who has been here for a year. She speaks English with a British accent. How intimidating. She has very long hair and she’s bigger and taller than me.
