Just like how the exact origins of this culinary masterpiece is unknown, I can’t remember what first urged me to try mala xiang guo (maybe it was along the lines of constantly viewing this curious combination of instant noodles and liao on many of my friends’ Insta stories). But I did, and let’s just say there's no turning back now.

So it has been awhile since you moved in and decorated your room, and your place is starting to look a little dull. Maybe those fairy lights look just a little stale after a semester and a half. Fret not as we serve you inspiration from our fellow residents who put in a tremendous amount of effort to makeover their rooms. Spicing things up may just give you even more reasons to look forward to coming back to your safe haven after a long day of school! Not-so-scientific fact: Studying feels less of a chore when done in a pretty environment 😊. It is not just girls who know a thing or two about decorations, as this piece brings you two rooms decorated by our male residents.

The topic of food is often a contentious one. Whether you’re an overly enthusiastic resident who responds to the overly enthusiastic daily 6pm “dinner jios” by your block committee, or someone who prefers to dine alone with your earphones in, perhaps we can all agree that the idea of having hall food doesn’t really make anyone excited… or hungry.

As the semester comes to a close and the holiday's approach (not before exams, though), let us revisit our best memories from the past semester.

The clock is running and another holiday, is upon us. Thanksgiving this year is on November 28th, a time which coincides with not just the end of semester 1 but also coincides with finals. Hence, it’s a perfect time to focus on gratitude and the present.

As the Halloween mood creeps up on us, we begin to see people whipping out their once-a-year creepily sexy(?) Halloween costumes. It is as if they forget about the real horrors of their lives for a week, as they party their time away. Let me be the devil here and remind you of what terrorises your everyday life here in Kent Ridge Hall.

I recently came across a video on the internet of how one woman managed to fit four years’ worth of trash into one tiny mason jar. This led me to wonder, is it possible to do the same in hall? For a day at least.
I had to find out.

It’s official. There’s a KR Buzzfeed trivia quiz.
This isn’t really an article; more of a link to the quiz itself for you to have fun (kinda like the “new post!” function on IG story. But a lot less annoying).

“The right room arrangement” has been a furiously debated (or maybe just discussed) topic amongst residents for as long as our FYFs can remember. The freedom to customise our room layouts and the number of variables to consider can be real confounders. “Should I do that?” “Wah his room look damn nice” “Omg got so much space.” Today we shall attempt to put this debate to rest (or maybe just make it worse) by giving our best breakdown of the pros and cons of the different arrangements.

Crazy Rich Asians was hailed as a huge step forward for asians, even touted as the “Asian Black Panther” for featuring an all-asian cast. With the inclusion of Singaporean “stars” such Pierre Rice and Fiona Thanks, it was a really proud and heartwarming for most Singaporeans who saw our tiny island represented on the big screen. But peering past the smoke and mirrors of patriotism, what we were really more intrigued with was the portrayal of these “crazy rich asians” — How crazy, rich and asian are these affluents really? Do they even exist? More importantly, could they be in our midst? We had to find out.

What exactly, is this “hall life” that uni kids talk about? Some might assume that it’s all about the unbridled freedom and havoc-wreaking nights. Others might just see it as a convenient place to crash on school nights. But only those who have experienced this “hall life” will truly appreciate the little things that come along with it.

Formed in 2014 as a creative outlet of expression for themselves, Terrestrea is the ongoing collective artistic endeavor of five friends, for whom music has nurtured as much as it has corrupted. Described by Juice Magazine as producing music that is simultaneously violent and beautiful, their songs have a dynamic that feels as destructive as a hurricane but calm when you suddenly enter its eye.
KR Day: A Mystery No More
March 12, 2018
You’ve probably heard about the upcoming KR Day with all the blasts on the block chats and the #krickshots Instagram competition. But a quick survey amongst freshies shows that aside from there being “I ❤ KR” shirts, not too many are sure what KR Day is all about.

Having stayed in KR for nearly a whole 7 months as a freshie, I think it’s finally safe to say that I’ve comfortably assimilated into my new environment. While it’s definitely been a truckload of fun and games, that isn’t to say that it’s been entirely smooth sailing on these blue waters, though…

Kent Ridge Hall. Indeed, an epicenter of unbelievable talent and skill. From superhuman sportsmen to show-stopping dancers to eargasm-inducing singers to no-kick-CAP-5.0 students, it appears that KR has them all. And by “all” we really mean all.

Part-time dancer and full time architecture student, Ong Yong Qing, is one of the rare members of Kent Ridge (KR) Hall who has managed to master-list all three years of his hall stay. With his only commitment in hall being dance, many have wondered how he’s even back for his third year.

For some, staying awake into the wee hours of the night requires a steady flow of snacks and occasional bouts of caffeine. To most KResidents, this is a struggle for the mornings.
