A Day in the Life of the Average NUS Law Student

So You Want the TeamNUS Shirt

My Lord. Look at this picture.  Everyone in this picture is smiling because we played good games of floorball that day against the other faculties. Everyone but me. I’m smiling because the shirt collector in me has been temporarily satiated. This TeamNUS shirt, I tell myself, will be the last time I hanker over a...

Law of Gains Act – Schedule 2: Measured Running Routes

For those who are puzzled by the incomprehensible title, I started a series of posts back when I was in Year 1 called the Law of Gains Act, unsurprisingly, focused on fitness and exercise. (I wasn’t overweight at the time so it appeared more credible than it does today. I might also add that it...

"Scary Movies" That Aren’t Too Scary

“Scary Movies” That Aren’t Too Scary

When I was really young, my mum used to bring me to the video rental shop at Serene Centre (now at Coronation Plaza) and I’d look at the covers of scary movies like Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street. The covers for those movies were always the coolest and most interesting, but I’d...

Beyond Impossible: Alternative Meats

Meat. A rare, four letter word which causes many to salivate.   A symbolic centerpiece of plenty, fine cuts of beef (think the not-so-recent hype over Wylarah) to the humble pig (such as Jamón Ibericó de Bellota) are opulent representatives of fine-dining. With wealthier populations and globalization complemented by favorable policies for cultivating livestock, the...

Four Species of Endangered Lawyers

Littered everywhere in the Singapore media is a doomsday prophecy for “young lawyers”. Even if they manage to beat the odds of getting a job amid the ‘glut’ of young lawyers, they are now told to hold off the (self-)congratulations as junior lawyers’ jobs are on the verge of being cannibalised by artificial intelligence.
