Good day to all!
Prior to deciding to come here, I was doubting a bit whether overseas studies in general would be more beneficial than an alternative of having a practical placement in a company. These doubts occupied my thoughts not that the benefits of the former are questionable, but because I am a pragmatic person, and this hesitation was just another of an endless series of weighting of pros and cons of the two alternatives. I had the luxury of being able to think for myself, so I have decided that, while working life is inevitable to come sooner or later, study exchange opportunity is one of its kind, and can never come up again. Given those considerations, I took heart and decided to go. If you ever ask me how my exchange is going, I would say that I don’t regret for a single moment having come here to Singapore.
I refrain from saying more on how I enjoy it here, and will now proceed to the blog topic, in which I would like to share why my stay here is made so enjoyable.
Shortly after study term commencement, OSEP students were invited for Director’s Tea Session.
There was plenty of yummy food there…
…and a very nice company to share it with!
Shortly after that, our friend from the United States invited us for a Thanksgiving celebration.
and once again plenty of yummy food J
and a great company to share it with!
Later on the exchange, OSEP students were invited for a trip to Marina Bay Sands hotel.
Views from the top are spectacular!
Besides this, we had several visit to companies such as Ernst & Young and PricewaterhouseCoopers, which gave a great insight into the companies’ operations. All in all, there are numerous events, celebrations and visits, which make exchange very interesting and exciting.
I am missing Russia and Finland quite a bit, but I derive much solace from the fact that I am very soon to come there, while Singapore is a place where I might never turn up again.
This is all for today :)
Have a nice day and see you soon!
