Would encourage any of my blog readers to share with me any event that you come across. As long as the event/activity/initiative is education/charity/youth oriented and is not-for-profit, I would be more than happy to post it to share!

perhaps it should be noted too that jia hui asked for a lot of aid, rendering his chances significantly tougher. well done.

Congrats to all Malaysians who got into all these great universities! I'm sure they'll do Malaysia proud over there in the States :D

But jia hui applied to harvard and princeton, which are international need blind schools. The financial status doesnt affect the chances of getting admitted. However, the fact that both harv n prince are international need-blind schools means basically the whole world applied to these schools. Note that the toughness of the competition is not caused by the fact that he asked for financial aids but caused by th fact that these schools are to willing to give out financial aids. *Just want to make things clear. Anyway, CONGRATZ to jia hui and the rest!

Hello everyone! Thank you for your well wishes - I'm now having a difficult time deciding. :) The congratulations mean a lot, and they must go out to the people and forces that make and break me.

And all the best everyone!
