PAYM Singapore – Hong Kong Youth Exchange Programme 2009 Day 7

18 February 2009

Checked out early in the morning and had a debriefing session. Enjoyed the complimentary drink from the hotel and departed to the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

A staff from the International Relations office told us more about CUHK. NUS students participate in the CUHK Summer Programme as well as exchange programmes with the varsity. I'm very tempted...

CUHK is built on a mountain and the sceneries are fantastic. Jonathan and George are from the school and they came to join us.

George succeeded in persuading Shirley into letting us view his dormitory. He claimed to be a jip yan (folded man), a term to describe students who stay in the dorm most of the time and don't participate in hall activities.

We had lunch at the Clubhouse Restaurant of Chung Chi College Staff Club. CUHK is divided into different colleges. I believe it's something like the house system we have in our junior colleges. Each college would have its own dormitories as well.

Hock Rong and I bidded farewell to Jonathan and George, the two energetic youths who home stayed at my place. It was quite a dreadful feeling to have to bid farewell for the second time.

Thanks to Wee Keong for the consolidation of the ordering of Wife's Biscuits!

At the airport, everyone took the final chance to capture the memories...

A picture with my saviour for the day:

I was the last to enter the departure gates. Can't imagine how time flies and now we have to say goodbye.

We departed at 6pm on flight SQ 865 and reached Singapore at about 9pm. I tried Singapore Sling for the first time and felt proud of this cocktail drink.

Goodbye Hong Kong. Hope to see you again soon!

Special thanks to Shirley & Nicole (for guiding and taking care of us around Hong Kong); Cher Ling, Derrick & Kenneth (for ensuring the safety of the Singapore delegate); all the Hong Kong delegates (for their energy and the unforgettable memories we had); as well as all the Singapore delegates (for all the fun and friendship).
