I'm not likely to go Ivy Leagues anyway, since I'm not rich, but making it to NUS Medicine Faculty would be nice :D
I think to many people, making it to NUS medicine is better than a lot of Ivy Leagues imho :ugogirl:

My peeve during this CNY gathering is when S/BILs - who chose to remain childless - start to advise me on how to upbring my DS. Saying things like children are supposed to be seen and not heard :P When you're outside looking in, it's always easy to give comments such as 'if I have my own child and h...

:welcome: Violin or piano? That's a tough call. The $64K question is: Do you want your kids to choose based on their own preferences or do you want to create another opportunity for their livelihood? I know that in orchestras they employ a lot of violinists but hardly any pianist. But of course the ...

I think most of us have a certain soft spot for our mothers. It's just that it's weird - to me at least - for sons to show their affection openly. If for no reason I decided to invite my mother out for tea, she'll either say 'what did the doctor say, how long more' or 'I don't have money to lend you...

Qifa->FMPS->NHHS->HC. Serafiel, :welcome: I'm also new here, even though I am definitely not young like you. Have seen better days physically, ahem! Your parents must be really proud of you. The fact that you're attending one of the best schools locally. I know I would if my DS does as well as you ...

Re: Thanks

markfch, Welcome :) I guess the chances of your son getting in Pei Hwa should be high since you're staying within 1km and under Phase 2B. Hi janet_lee88, Thanks for the welcome. I read about your DH and I also hope that he gets well soon. Thanks to all for the warm welcome. I'm sure we will continu...

Newbie dad reporting, Yes Sir & Madam

Hi, I've just introduced myself at the Newbie section so I thought I'll pop by. I'm dad to a single child (DS) currently staying at Toh Tuck. Not sure whether I'm 'qualified' to post in this thread yet as DS is still in K2. However, was selected as PV this yr and is within 1km of PHPPS so I guess ch...
