I live in a 6 bedroom apartment with 5 other guys. There are Simone from italy, Jay from the USA, Luke from the Netherlands and the so-called locals Viktor and Jonathan (from Singapore).
The apartment and rooms are functional, but that's it. So I tried to decorate it with a swiss flag that it feels a bit cozier. My room has a bed, a wardrobe, a table, a corpus, a bookshelf and a fan. I'm lucky that the internet works and the shower has sufficient pressure and warm water as well. The mattress is very hard and plastic-covered. Therefore I bought a mattress pad from another student who used it last semester --> much better :D.
You might wonder how?
There exists a facebook group with all the exchange students at the NUS and everybody can ask questions, sell things, organize trips or anything. It's very helpful!
The view on my pictures seems to be gorgeous, but actually when I sit at the table, I only see the front of the building next to me.
To make a long story short, I'm happy with my place and my housemates.
greeting to my friends and family :)
