I swear time flew by quicker than I could say slow down.
So much has happened during the poly days;
I’ve been through much,
but also learnt a lot and grown a lot since day 1.
I don’t think I can express how thankful I am towards Ngee Ann,
for shaping me and making me who I am today.
I still rmbr when I was a freshie.
Being in BA meant lots of fun and happening events.
Our orientation camp was and is still the most BOMBZ in NP.
Love the cheers, and we have the best seniors, best flags, best everything!
Thunderous Tecktonik, champs :>
Pretty seniors that guided me and cared for me over the whole BAOC. So thankful that they pushed me to be Tecktonik Mascot, will never forget the experience!
One with the Tecktonik ASCO and my first eye candy in Poly! Keith’s the most amazing guy I’ve ever met; with so much sincerity in him. He’s a great influential leader and really nice and just a wonderful human being.
Trying not to laugh and blush as Asian Zac Efron serenades to me.
Cinderfella and Tecktonik Princess :>
If you expected the orientation wave to die out, you’d be so disappointed!
In NP, its a tradition for OGs to have mass sentosa outings heheheh
Alvin laojiao drove us over, he’s the best mannnn.
Alvin’s face like a constipated only HAHA
Awaiting my fate.
First time getting my WHOLE BODY BURIED
Being a freshie is always about getting bullied. HAHAH
But it’s fun :>
It was a whole bunch of nerves upon going to a new class.
Didn’t know if you were gonna meet people you clicked off with and stuff;
but I’m glad I met my clique.
They have been such great life supports,
wouldn’t have completed poly without them.
Still my bestie from day 1:> Idk what kind of hairstyle was that back in 2011, god. And I sported army specs then. o.o
We all look so younggggg
We took tons of class photos in Year 1
I didn’t join any CCA per say because I was afraid of the amount of time that I would need to commit.
My parents didn’t allow me to stay out too late,
so I joined BA interest groups instead.
I was really lucky to have gotten into BA envoys and joined BA Comms.
BA Envoys Camp 2011 ; Corvus Ayo Ayo~
Envoys Friday, an initiative to bond envoys together!
Through BA Comms, got the opportunity to form a lil band to sing; in public!
Will never forget the splendid surprise that my girls planned for my 17th :>
The NP Scholarship has opened so many doors and opportunities as you will see along the way :> #forevergrateful
The first being the chance to attend TCP camp with other scholars, where we opened our hearts and mind to new learnings. I still rmbr the games HAHA omg they drove us crazy indeed
Joining EF crew meant lots of planning for EFs and EF camp, it was a hell ride of a journey but I must say I learnt a lot!

OIP SHANGHAI MAR2012-APR2012
One of my best memories with NP, has got to be OIP SHANGHAI 2012!
So thankful to have been given the opportunity to spend 5 weeks in SH.
We went over for company visits, had cultural lessons and completed B Comm 1 there :>
Although I didn’t score well for the modules and it pulled down my GPA;
but I would never trade the memories made there for anything else.
Me and the bestie checking into our home for the next 5 weeks, couldn’t ask for a better roomie. :>
I briefly rmbr cruising down the river
Conquered Jin Mao Tower together~
Company visit to Volkswagen!
Gorgeous hippy place, tian di fang or something like that
Prolly somewhere along Nanjing road where you could shop some branded stuff and all.
Second company visit was to Coca-cola!
The trains in SH are really accessible, and we travelled to most places by train. But on lazy days, we cabbed cause it’s still so friggin cheap anyways HAHA
I sure do miss Chiki, it’s like shilin but better!
Roomie selfie :>
Had all our lessons in Shanghai U, it’s really quite a pretty campus!
We also made a trip to Hangzhou and suzhou!
Stumbled upon this beautiful Paris inspired cafe and had a really nice cup of rose coffee

Alongst the streets of Shanghai, my skin looked so good then!
Towards the end of the trip, Spring arrived and the flowers were blooming :>
At our fav shopping place, Qi Pu Lu! Once, we shopped for 7 hours straight HAHAH
5 weeks went by in a flash, last photo before we leave :>

Was in EF crew tee to help out for Envoys AGM 2012/2013! This was also the time where my bestie just got to know her current BF and she looks so blissful
Because of TCP (The Christeria Programme), I got to be involved in Pre-University Seminar 2012.
It was a 5 day residential programme at NTU, got to stay at a pretty lovely hall :>
There, we discussed current affairs and exchanged opinions and made new friendships.
Pre-uni sem kickstarted my interest in SG affairs!

YEP 2013 (MAR)
The other school trip I’ve been on with NP was YEP Chiangmai.
It wouldn’t have been possible if not for TCP!
It was a trip of self-discovery and personal development, lots and lots of learning and FUN!
Drinkin from a bamboo cup at the night market!
AMAZING RACE CM
At our city homestay, my host family brought us to The Harbour! Really pretty place for photos but wasn’t dressed for it :/
Had dinner by the river! My Thai daddy was a respected judge who has now moved on, you’d always be in my heart. My Thai mae(mummy) is a lawyer who turned into fashion designing; she has so much poise and elegance. Love my thai siblings too! Really lovely people<3
Lunch stop while going up to mountain to the village!
One of the funnest rides everrrrrr, the wind in your hair and sun in your face.

National Family Celebrations 2013
When all my lucky stars aligned,
I found myself sitting on the Youth Committee for National Family Celebrations 2013
as well as the Public Relations Committee to give ideas and input on how to make NFC 2013 a success.
I don’t know if “scouted” would be the correct word,
because I simply attended a REACH Youth Ambassador Orientation
(which could not have been possible without NP’s TCP);
and I posed a question to the Minister at the forum that day
(and what I said seemed to resonate with everyone else cause there was claps and laughter)
and I guess that’s why I got invited on board :>
It was a busy but exciting journey,
where I spent weekends on 6 hour meetings to vet through submissions for the Project Superglue grant.
We funded many youth projects that promote family bonding!
I went on to double as a Youth media representative as well,
to field interviews and share about NFC 2013.
It was exciting to be on 95.8FM as well as Channel 8 ;>
Morning interview, omg my face chui
Went on Good Morning Singapore to share about the youth contributions towards NFC 2013 :>
Co-hosting with The Flying Dutchman at the Launch Party :>
Photo with the Minister :>
Family Day In! (no thanks to the haze though)
Felt an immense sense of achievement when I saw project #famshot come to past
Do follow the new Ministry of Social development and Family’s FB for updates on Family events and ideas for family bonding!
PwC Internship (Sep 2013-Feb 2014)
Being from NP’s accountancy course; the 6 mths internship is a compulsory segment of our poly term.
It is a really valuable experience,
as you get insights into the industry and find out more about the potential career pathways available.
I was really lucky to be posted to PwC to do audit for my internship.
I figured audit would be the most interesting,
since you get to go to different client offices to work.
However, I quickly found out that I really didn’t like accounting and audit.
It was just not my thing yknow?
I just don’t feel the numbers, I don’t know where to pluck the numbers.
Everything is so grey instead of black and white.
I doubt the whole purpose of the audit, so I guess I really should leave Acc HAHAH.
Was kinda worried I wouldn’t fit in at first, but it turned out okay!
Talk about employee welfare hurhurhur :>
As Audrey Hepburn for PwC DND 2013!
We always have a good time, Xmas Bash 2013!

It’s been a great 3 years with NP and I don’t think I would be who I am today if I chose another path.
Thank you, xo.
