Words of Wisdon (2)



...a first-class tuckshop....

GP Department Head, 0705.

Comment: Hell! Look at how small our canteen is. We can't even pack a quarter of the student population in there. To be able to get a seat during breaks is already a miracle. And there were rats!

Still, I admit 0705 canteen is first-class, just like PAP Government is also first-class.

Words of Wisdom from GP Dept Head in 0705

GP Remedial Lecture today.
They gave us a promo compre paper from HCI to do. Then they give out answer sheets. GP department in 0705 has a long history of not marking the students' work.

Not having time to mark the students' work isn't an excuse. What are the teachers paid for? For helping us photocopying other schools' papers? That is too easy a job. Does not deserve the salary. Other JCs' teachers even mark the students' SAT practises and go through the papers with each individual students even when SAT is not part of the GP syllabus.

It can be said that the students are better off not doing any homework, since they won't know their mistake and exactly when and where the mistakes were made.

Words of wisdom from GP Department Head:

"Please be serious with your work. Do not resort to such childish behavior."

"Listen. Listen. LISTEN PEOPLE!"

"Why do you come to school if you want to talk?"

"Take home something fom the feedback!" (There was no feedback because the papers were not even marked.)

"If you are going to talk then there is no value."

"I won't go through, because all the answers are here, you can mark it yourself."

"Why are you talking away, destroying yourself?"

"If you talk, you are not going to listen."

"If you talk, then you are not going to listen. Then you make mistakes."

"You do not learn, and you call yourself muggers. It is sad."

"Again you see. Talk, talk, talk. Very shallow you all are."

"I am only here stating how you can plan and get your marks. The marking (for comprehension summary and application question) you can do it yourself."

"They (a question in the comprehension paper) are thinking."

"Please go and lut (look) it up!"

"You don't speak english, you are killing yourself."

"Many of you! Paper were too clean. That is why you have problems."

Thou art sicko asshole, GP department head.

--

Addon:

0705, you don't have that kind of quality teachers, don't expect to have that kind of quality students. Throw them HCI paper everything, you think they are good? The GP Dept isn't even good in the first place.

I wonder how the value addedness of the GP Dept is like.
Physics Dept disclosed theirs and not a single class has positive value-addedness.

This goes on to show that by coming into 0705, students are actually stepping into a school far lousier than their secondary schools. Call that graduation? Cos i don't.

Source A:
A picture of a crowded canteen in 0705.


















Source B:
A quote from the student who saw how the 0705 authority welcomed guests:


"Today some visitors come to school in the evening, from the looks, they seem to be from some chinese orchestra from China.

And from what I can see, they were treated to all these:
1) Girls holding umbrella to bring them in in case it rains
2) Live lion dance troupe performance at the foyer
3) Reading room turned into eating room for them, with all kinds of buffet food.

As student of 0705 for so long, I have yet to experience any of these.

Amazingly, the school seldom invest properly on the students to make them happy and provide them with what they need, so that all students will spread the good name of the school even when they leave. Instead, students leave the school with a bad impression of it.

Any CCAs in other schools I asked, all get more funding than the same CCA in 0705. Even in terms of facilities, 0705 lose out to other junior colleges, despite the fact that MOE provides all JCs the same amount of funds, and all students pay the same school fee. Students in 0705 are shortchanged without knowing it. They are that stupid."


Source C:
A quote from the student who is disgruntled over what they get is not what they are paid for:


"JC school fee is $6 la. We can't expect to get too much out of $6 per month. 0705 don't have the funds to sufficently look after the students, and don't have the brains to make good use of funds by the MOE.

Therefore, we cannot wish to receive quality of education that is within our expectation. The library must consist little varieties of books but many of the same book so as to cut cost while buying in bulk. The different CCAs in the school survive on little or no funding. This is really pathetic.

I hate this bloody school and can't help thinking I could have gone to SAJC instead. Things are much better there. 0705 is nothing but a real life son-of-a-bitch.

In other JCs, students are paying the same $6, but somehow their $6 return them more benefits than an 0705 student's wildest dreams."

Source D:
Extract of what the 0705 is made up of:


We have a P who has the latest and most fashionable hairstyle and reads the newspaper once a week.

We have a VP who only knows how to scold a lion.

We have toilets that emits the nicest fragrance you can ever experience.

We have a canteen that is as dark as a cave with birds decorating the tables with wonderful arts after having enjoyed a mouth-watering meal elsewhere.

We have the latest facilities that are capable of accumulating dust and growing rust.

We have a spacious hall aims to pack the whole population like sadines in a can and also which 0705 boasts of after the installation of air-cons that are whiter than the white elephants of Buangkok.

We have the uniquely 0705 rats that loves to play hide and seek with the 0705 authority.

We have the unbeatened record of having more late comers than S-paper students on any school day.

We have the smartest teachers who loves to use self-directed learning as a means to ensure that they get the most out of their salaries.

We have a department just next to the track whose members are capable of walking in and out all day long and enjoying the luxuries of air conditioning while the students suffer under the austere sun.

We have students who are capable of designing banners or propaganda posters that they have no courage to display at conspicuous areas to the public.

Maybe

Maybe they will combine bird flu drill and election holiday into a day, and on that day students will have to go the cluttered and disorganised iVLE to download some stuffs to do.

The VP Tay of 0705 has no concept of holiday.

Roaring 0705 school spirit

This entry may have insufficent and uninteresting contents. I am reserving the interesting ones for others who may want to write about.

The cheer support group for the basketball finals put up an impressive and magnificent show that one can never expect. Incessant and thunderous roars fill the whole sports hall. I was totally impressed by it although I believe that some are contributed by the opponent's school. I was also wondering if the rats of 0705 went along.

In that 2-3 hours, the once in a life-time school spirit appeared, not at night, but on a sweltering afternoon to support the 0705 basketball team that miraculously made it to the finals. when back at school, during internal competitions, many will be thinking of excuses that will entitle them to missing the competitions.

The deafening roars will never take place in 0705 due to the fear of the building being unable to withstand the vibrations and collapse like dominoes. Most importantly, we have the 0705 authority that is all out to scold a lion that roars.

In particular, I saw one HCI player getting a good smell of the basketball before passing it to someone else. Of course he must do it, the basketball will be given to the 0705 team while they take the trophy home.

As expected, the 0705 team lost. This is okay, we had experienced such loses for more than 20 years since the school is established.

What I cannot stand is that the school has so far refused to take about the holiday to celebrate the winnings of the volleyball team. And also, where is our election holiday? Are they trying to give us the election holiday in form of a half day that is meant to celebrate the historic winnings of the school team?

I want an answer.

I WANT AN ANSWER.

NOTICE!!!!!

Even though I was not the one who created this blog, can those who know the password and are new strictly use the 0705 to represent the school? The real name does not worth our mention.

0705 Basket!

We got our P, VPs and teachers, who can't even be bothered about the developement, welfare of the students and the fantastic party the rats in the school are having to go down to support the basket ball team. If we lose this match, 0705 becomes an offical loser, winning only one sports (Volleyball Girls). So in order to prevent ourselves from becoming sorry losers with 39 CCAs and only 1/2 of a CCA getting champion, the school got everyone to go down.

Going down is no easy matter. In HCI, our enemey for that day, the school actually hired bus to ferry students at three different time slots, and around 3 buses each time so that students released at different time could go and support the match. In 0705, there were only 2 buses, and both leave at 2pm sharp. Students on the bus were even asked to sit "3 to a seat". This remains me of the schoolbuses in primary school. Come'on. 0705 students are slaves, but they are still young adults. Junior Colleges get the same kind of funding, yet we only affort 2 buses? Using the excuse that money are pumped into giving needy students and creating school scholarships is nonsense - HCI has more smart students than us.

At the destination, the place was overrunning with people, most from HCI in their proper school uniform. They look smart and tidy. On the other hand, we were told to be in our blue and yellow PE t-shirt. As if we are going down to the court to snatch the balls with the player! What the hell. This made 0705 students looked ugly, untidy and low-classed. Imagine a bunch of beggars cheering for you. Will you win?

Perhaps because of the false illusion that 0705 will win, students cheered loudly. But soon, the cheers became softer and softer, until we finally lost the game. This shows that the 0705 students are here to see us win, to cheer hard for our half-day, if the school ever intend to give any. They certainly did not come here because of school spirit, but rather, their own selfish hope to get a day off from school.

HCI, as generous and high-class as they can be, cheered for 0705. Our councillors tried to get us to cheer for HCI in return, but the students daoed them. We are here for our victory, our half-day. No half-way, no talk.

Even when 0705 finally got around to singing the school song, the song was cut off after the first chorus. No one knows the lyrics after that. The same thing happened during the volleyball finals on wednesday. It also happened every wednesday during flag raising, when it is obvious there are very little people singing the school song. This shows how strong a school spirit we have, with students not even knowing the lyrics of the school song. On the other hand, I still remember the complete lyrics of my secondary and primary school songs. This shows that 0705 still has a long way to go to have any kind of identity or school spirit. What is all that hypocratic cheering (for a half-day if we won) if we can't even sing our own school song?

What the hell. How embarrassed we looked, when our school staffs were all there, and we lost. I don't dare to look.

Half day? No Half day?

Today all the finals completed already. 1 win 1 lose.
So this begs the question-Half day or no half day?

Personally i bet there will be no half day. why? because 0705 are all muggers. Plus we got a lovely P which a "in" hairstyle and a celebrity look alike face(hint: a dj frm some chinese station) who on the surface look very enthu by going down to both the finals.

Today 0705 also showed our "spirit" but dunno why our spirit got owned by the hci spirit. Although all the hci players look like some ah beng or china prc scholars our team still lost sia. sian half la.

In short 0705 is damn fucked up la. Stupid shit sia.

S**** L**** of 0705 look like dong fang billy.

0705 banners look damn retard la.

Tmr is college day! yet another fucked up event thought up by the school. go back see ppl get award u song(happy) meh? see all the fucking muggers come back sch take award. might as well sleep at home la.

the audi is so small tat not all j2 can go(blessing in disguise?) if not some(only some not a lot la) ppl muz fill up all the stairs. sitting on stairs? whrere is the human rights?

DO u noe teachers oso SLEEP during mass civics? how can they sleep? when i sleep will get kao bei by them! so unfair la!

In short this is a warning to all readers not to come 0705 aft u get ur o lvl results.

Thank u. pls do not del tis post if u got balls. bet u don hav.

by We are Noobs. thank u for letting us post this.

Cretivity rocks!

Hello, welcome welcome! Hahaha.

I found something damn weird, this thing is call Creativity! I wonder how much creativity 0705 has....

Say I got to know this video call The Letter, its locally produced by somoene else, its really a good and nice 20 minutes video about unforbidden love! YET, 0705 threatened the producer to take the video down just cos its shot in 0705! Hey, i was thinking of maybe taking it to the Mass Civics! Ppl say Singaporeans no Creativity, now we have ppl burying all the creativity.

Yes the video did portray gay. But its a one side thing, the other party told him its wrong and the guy committed suicide. Does it promote gayness? NO! The story is saying that gay is "unnatural" and "wrong". BUT, as the society moves on we should respect them! We should not look at them in a different perspective,else the poor guy might commit suicide? So its the suicide part that is inappropiate? MediaC showed a lot of cases of suicide mah! Furthermore there is NO explicit scene or anything sex related AT ALL!

0705 SHOULD be glad the school compund was being used for the shooting such an excellent drama! Furthermore, its said to be based on a true story.

Crap $6

JC school fee is $6 la. We can't expect to get too much out of $6 per month. 0705 don't have the funds to sufficently look after the students, and don't have the brains to make good use of funds by the MOE.

Therefore, we cannot wish to receive quality of education that is within our expectation. The library must consist little varieties of books but many of the same book so as to cut cost while buying in bulk. The different CCAs in the school survive on little or no funding. This is really pathetic.

I hate this bloody school and can't help thinking I could have gone to SAJC instead. Things are much better there. 0705 is nothing but a real life son-of-a-bitch.

In other JCs, students are paying the same $6, but somehow their $6 return them more benefits than an 0705 student's wildest dreams.

Incompetent 0705 Authority

The acrimonous debate between the 0705 authority and the students of 0705 is never ending. While disgruntled 0705 students argue and protest for their basic rights, the 0705 authority thinks otherwise. As a disgraced student of 0705, it is a misery to be suffering under the leadership of such incompetent 0705 authority. As a student who has paid the exorbitant school fees for such treatment we are entitled to, it is rightful for us to say what we feel about the school, especially when we are being unfairly treated to sub-standard facilities and staffs who are puppets of the omnipotent dictatorial 0705 authority.

Here are some facts which the 0705 students have brought up:

We have a P who has the latest and most fashionable hairstyle and reads the newspaper once a week.

We have a VP who only knows how to scold a lion.

We have toilets that emits the nicest fragrance you can ever experience.

We have a canteen that is as dark as a cave with birds decorating the tables with wonderful arts after having enjoyed a mouth-watering meal elsewhere.

We have the latest facilities that are capable of accumulating dust and growing rust.

We have a spacious hall aims to pack the whole population like sadines in a can and also which 0705 boasts of after the installation of air-cons that are whiter than the white elephants of Buangkok.

We have the uniquely 0705 rats that loves to play hide and seek with the 0705 authority.

We have the unbeatened record of having more late comers than S-paper students on any school day.

We have the smartest teachers who loves to use self-directed learning as a means to ensure that they get the most out of their salaries.

We have a department just next to the track whose members are capable of walking in and out all day long and enjoying the luxuries of air conditioning while the students suffer under the austere sun.

We have students who are capable of designing banners or propaganda posters that they have no courage to display at conspicuous areas to the public.

etc..

The incompetent 0705 authority also consitutes a bunch of liars!

I still remembered that the Mickey Mouse who migrated to Disney has promised that he will do something to improve the state of the canteen and that day never came.

I still remembered that the 0705 authority has promised that they will look into the problems raised by the students and give us a reply. That day for reply has come, but through the mouths of the student puppets under them. I have not seen any constructive policies that are capable of bringing 0705 to greater heights.

How does the 0705 authority solve problems? All talks but no actions taken.

A civics lesson was dedicated for discussion to tackle the late coming problem and the SA committee has once boasted to us about the one-third latecoming proportion to the 0705 students. This is incomparable to other schools where the number of latecomers are lesser than the rats in their compound.

To solve the rat problem, we have the infamous "no eating in class" in the student's handbook. Are they trying to starve the rats to death. Come on, rat problems cannot be solved by using this approach.

When the news about the incompetent 0705 authority was on the verge of seeing light in the papers, the 0705 authority tried to brainwash us by giving all sorts of reasons. There is also censorship of comments on blogs that are in fact true.

Yes. We should compare ourselves with those that are worse than us. Take for instance the rats problem, who can we compare with? With ourselves! With the 0705 authority!

Well done! Students of 0705! Have your say!

Students VS Visitors, Lions VS Prinicipal

Today some visitors come to school in the evening, from the looks, they seem to be from some chinese orchestra from China.

And from what I can see, they were treated to all these:
1) Girls holding umbrella to bring them in in case it rains
2) Live lion dance troupe performance at the foyer
3) Reading room turned into eating room for them, with all kinds of buffet food.

As student of 0705 for so long, I have yet to experience any of these.

Amazingly, the school seldom invest properly on the students to make them happy and provide them with what they need, so that all students will spread the good name of the school even when they leave. Instead, students leave the school with a bad impression of it.

Any CCAs in other schools I asked, all get more funding than the same CCA in 0705. Even in terms of facilities, 0705 lose out to other junior colleges, despite the fact that MOE provides all JCs the same amount of funds, and all students pay the same school fee. Students in 0705 are shortchanged without knowing it. They are that stupid.

I was watching the lion dance performance. I thought they did pretty well in welcoming the foreign students to take a look at our miserable school that has canteen with tables filled with bird poo, rats running around, and chairs in the Ohana with their bolts and screws falling off. Instead, the VP scolded those performers for going too close to the principal. KNNCCB! Is she so stupid and ignorant after 20 years of being an educator, that she did not know that the person controlling the lion's rear cannot see his surrounding at all? That VP is nothing but a bloody show off who did not have the well being and welfare of the students in mind. She only wants to spend money on visitors uphold the school's reputation, but did little to improve the school for the students. Instead of actively looking into how the school can be improved, she ask the students to do something she was paid to do.

Did she ever look up the meaning of the word school? It is certainly not a hotel to entertain visitors.

Now those lions are roaring with rage.

On a sidenote, one of the visitors were so pleased with the lions that she actually touched the rear of the lions (someone's butt). The lion dance was well received, but some one who thought herself to be so experienced and good scolded the performers. What the hell! The last I heard, she was still fluming over this matter.

The VP is like that. What about the school controlled by her???

I would think the principal is fine with everything, as she seemed very happy and the most open and kind principal in the world. It must have been a struggle for her to control her 2 conservative and old fashioned VPs.

0705 Speech

"Right now we have Low Thia Khiang, Chiam See Tong, Steve Chia. We can deal with them. Suppose you had 10, 15, 20 opposition members in Parliament. Instead of spending my time thinking what is the right policy for Singapore, I'm going to spend all my time thinking what's the right way to fix them, to buy my supporters votes, how can I solve this week's problem and forget about next year's challenges?" - PM LEE

"Right now we have students reporting about rats, sexuality talk, The letter. We can deal with them. Suppose you had 10, 15, 20 opposition students in school. Instead of spending my time thinking what is the right policy to slack off and throwing my responsibilities to the students, I'm going to spend all my time thinking what's the right way to fix them, to brainwash them, how can I solve this week's propagation of truth about my school and forget about enjoying my own paradise?" - Authority of 0705

A tribute to 0705.

I simply adore 0705. It is a wonderful school with wonderful facilities. For starters, the building threatens to topple down everytime thunder and lightning strikes. (Actually, good riddance if the building really topples down) This is especially true about the lovely toilets which never fails to emit fragrant aromas. The school seems to be too poor to put toilet paper in each cubicle, or perhaps they have altruistic intentions to teach us to save paper. Sometimes i wonder whether the school cleaners are doing their job since the lovely fragrance which omits from the toilet is perpetuate.

Teachers in 0705 really lead an enviable life. Their job scope does not include teaching, but sitting on the table, shaking legs or just dishing out tutorials. It is us students who are split into groups and have to teach the class. If that is the purpose, then we may as well fire those teachers since they serve no purpose at all. 0705 justify their actions under the policy 'Self Directed Learning', in compliance with the MOE's 'Teach Less Learn More' policy. The key is teach less, not teach nothing. However, these lazy teachers happily embrace the policy and decide to leave everything to the poor students. Though 0705 teachers seem to have a tremendous number of courses to attend to, so do teachers from other colleges. Compare teachers here with teachers in other colleges (including the top colleges 0705 is often said to be trying to catch up with). Teachers here nitpick about every little single thing, from your earrings, your hair to the way you wear your uniform and latecoming etc, but what they should care about most - studies - they simply leave us do to independent learning. Teachers in other jcs, such as the top jcs are different, they care more about studies and do not nitpick about silly stupid stuff. Teachers in 0705 are simply too free and spend their days in school picking their noses. In short, majority are totally useless and most of them have screws loose in their minute insignificant brains. Seriously, the 2 years spent in this school is more than enough. If I had to stay in this madhouse for more than the time allocated by the ministry, i wouldn't be surprised if I have to pay a visit to an asylum soon.

Teachers in 0705 are also entitled to many extra priviledges. One of them include getting to vent their tempers on students, which i think they simply have no right to. We are the ones paying money in the form of school fees for teachers to teach us, yet they do not do so. Instead, they are also fond of asking us to look out for their moods and not provoke them when they are feeling moody. This is especially true for teachers who are undergoing menopause at a very early age. It does not help that biasness towards certain students comes together as package with these 0705 teachers, just like a buy-one-get-one free cheap deal at flea markets. The worst thing of all is to use one of their (frequent) sore moods as a tool to make sure that their orders are unquestioned. Poor suffering students of 0705 will then have to be constantly on their guard to watch out for any signs of transformations from a hibernating bear to a snarling orge. In all, I see no reason in us having to respect them since they are not deserving of our respect. Why shouldn't they beware of us and watch out for our moods too? They should in fact be at our beck and call since we are paying them to teach us. Without us, there goes their livelihood. If they are paid to teach us, they jolly well do that, mind their own business and keep their tempers at check. These teachers are CRAP.

In my opinion, the school should probably evaluate its actions since so many students dislike the school and the problem probably does not lie with the students but with the sch authorities.

In addition, there are some 'black sheep' in 0705 who enjoy talking about people behind their backs. It will do well for them to mind their business and shutup lest they want to get beaten up. There are also other 'black sheep' who disgrace 0705 by displaying irritating and abnormal behaviour. It would also do good for them to wisen up lest they want to end up badly.

0705 Simply The BEST

Hi guys I'm new here.

Any of you watched I not Stupid?

The fatty mother often tells her children that they are "fortunate to have a good and responsible mother", when in fact she was far from it.

0705's hanging up of that banner, it is Deja Vu for me.

0705 Hardly the BEST

if they had the courage, they should put the banner at places where the public can see, for example at the school gate.

we now end up mourning the fact that we had to come out with a banner to show this how great the school is.

otherwise, we won't the know the school has anything to do with the word "best".

0705 Simply The BEST

Saw an extremely huge propaganda poster with the words "0705 Simply The BEST" hanging outside the library corridor, totally out of reach so that I cannot go ahead and add the word "HELL" at the back of it.

Sigh.

late! late! late!

what a miracle, as i looked at the number of risk takers at the foyer, there was only 2!!

TWO!!!

wah!!!

don't be happy, the late comers are standing at the late coming side of the foyer!!! donno how many times more!!!

PAP and Worker's Party Rally

I saw somebody at yawningbread.org put the photos of the rallies by PAP and WP at the exact same spot and at the climax of the rallies.

Guess which photo belongs to which rally.





The first photo was taken during the Worker's Party Rally, and the second during PAP's rally. Strange the media never show this.

Canteen

The canteen in 0705 has such lousy food that even the disabled speaker who was invited to speak in MCV today commented on it as slightly above hospital food. The wonderful talk had taught me something, which is, to always compare to things that are worst off than ourselves. However, my mother and all those ah sohs out there never do such a thing. And when will RJC compare itself with 0705? Guess they just couldnt bother.

0705 has got a wonderfully small canteen, a canteen which can house at the house 500 comfortably, and 800 when stretched. Yet there are many many cases of people not getting to eat because of the long queues and no seats. It is not the canteen that is too small, but rather, the time tabling that screwed up, bringing a hell lot of people to the canteen within the same time slot.

I skipped a few lectures once, and was shocked to discover that the canteen was virtually empty at those times. This is definitely the gift to 0705 students by the time table community. Neverthless, we as students will stand STRONG. We are willing to go hungry before sitting for important tests or after PE lessons, and not having the next breaks until 3 or more hours later. These are just parts and parcel of life in 0705.

Despite what others may believe, I embrace the school happily and arrive at the school canteen promptly at 7am everyday. Much as I hate the school, I was never late for it. Anyway, I would then go to the canteen to chat with my friends there, and what rewarded me everyday without fail are canteen tables filled with bird droppings. It seems that the canteen in 0705 caters better to the bird's toiletry needs than the nature out there. More than that, 0705 canteen is the home to various wildlife, such as rats and mices, which could be spotted once in a while, just like how rare creatures of the night can be spotted in the night safari.

After positioning my hands, bum and bag carefully so as not to touch those droppings, I begin to chat. Around 5 to 10 minutes before the bell ring for flag raising, the 2 televisions in the canteen will switch on abruptly and suddenly as if by magic, and the familar faces of Channel News Asia news anchors filled the screen. Too bad, the canteen is too noisely to hear anything. Who would bother anyway, when there is only a little time before one has to leave the canteen for flag raising. You couldn't catch much news that way. In the end, the TVs only added to the noise on the canteen, and the electric bills of the school. There was once during one lunch break when a certain student could not bear it any longer, and somehow managed to switch one of the TV to tvtext, afterwhich the rest of the 0705 students enjoyed their day viewing TOTO and 4D.

Unlike what the speaker had said, I feel that the food the canteen was still ok. A few stalls were probably overpriced, like the chicken rice stall that sell alot of rice and very very little meat, to tempt people to order an additional egg at 40cents, which most did. So each plate of rice with pitifully few slices of meat and an egg costs $1.90. Compare this to the Western food store, where a chicken cutlet with lots of fries costs $2, or with the Yong Tou Hu stall where no matter how many items I ordered, i never exceeded $2. The Yong Tau Hu stall sells cheap and nice noodles, but never order anything that has soup. Their laksa looked like laksa but tasted like tape water. There was once where we witness the auntie pouring tape water into the laksa pot because she was running out of laksa gravy. The same goes for Tom Yam. Never order any of those. In the noodle stall selling things like wanton noodles and the likes, never bring the small bowl of soup provided if you ordered the dry version. Have you tasted tap water with pepper? That is how the soup taste like. The malay stalls sells things that are overly oily. Just order a plate of anything, eat them up, and observe how oily your plate has become. All in all the stall with the best rate and food quality are the vegetarian stall and the fried kway tiao stall. The auntie in the later often cause fire to explode skywards from her wok when cooking her Or Fan, causing her Or Fan to tasted cooked but nice.

All in all, canteen in 0705 can be nice if you know what are the stalls to buy from, and you can ignore things such as bird droppings and rats running around while you enjoy your food.
