Director: Alfonso Cuarón Overall Rating: 8/10 It is a testament to the whims of life (or the power of pop culture) that one week after Gravity is out, I have to watch it alone; as for Thor, the show isn’t even released and I have two appointments already. I must have been quite a nerdy sight […]

We didn’t make it through the prelims. We didn’t clinch any prize. I’m disappointed, of course. Less with myself and the team’s performance. I think we put up a good show. But more with letting our coaches and NUS’s illustrious history in the Space Moots down. The Applicant round (Kristi & I) went unquestioned all the […]

We left school at 11.30PM the night before our memo was due. We received comments at 6.30PM; I skipped my evening class. I told Soo not to count on having transport back after class, which ended at 9.30PM. He didn’t. I sent my teammate back after we left school. Then I made my way home […]
