interesting read from another forum:
http://forums.cozycot.com/1972464-post330.html

hall 3 is the first hall 2 mins from lwn library bus stop... its very comfortable and nice, looks like condo. very very secure also, got password/card protected everywhere - toilet, staircase, lounge etc.

because its so near to nie, you dont even need umbrella when its raining cause its covered all the way... hahaha

the people in that hall are quite famous for their "atas" status, they wear prada bedroom slippers, branded clothes even when just sitting in the lounge, and get their maids to clean their rooms and wash their clothes. apparently for 2nd year ppl onwards, you have to have "connections" in order to continue staying there, but not sure if its true haha.

hall 3 is not THAT far from nbs, its only about 15min walk from lwn. i stayed at hall 11 and 15, it takes me 40 mins to walk to nbs if i cut through hall 2, more if i walk to lwn. can3 not so nice... i prefer hall 14 canteen, alot of variety and cheap too. should try their korean food!!! damn delicious. oh and their desserts stall....

can 13 also not bad, just that they always open very late close very early. also got alot of good looking guys staying at hall 12/13, although thats abit OOT heehee. if you dont mind walking, can11 got this steamboat[???] stall, $8 can share 2-3ppl.

since u are in nbs, can b will most probably be where you eat the most.... got a very very good malay stall, if you like malay food. their line is always the longest during lunch. snakes all the way until the outside area. and the only time dont have line for their stall is 3-4pm onwards. their breakfast stuff also not bad... if you can wake up early lol.... DONT eat the beijing stall... totally sucks. the vegetarian stall also not bad, just that the stall owner very kiam sap, give very little ingredients.

another post from the same forum:
http://forums.cozycot.com/1974107-post344.html

the earlier you go to pick up your keys, the more choices in block, level and room you have. makes no difference to me la, unless you already know people in the same hall. at the office, if you dont already have a roommate, they will ask you if you mind having roommates who are foreigners, different races or same race.

not sure if its coincidence or they put the indians with indians and malays with malays, cause i stayed in hall 9 last sem, and the whole of the first level in a certain block was malay guys and there's this stretch of corridor along hall 10 with indian guys.

if you choose foreigners, you get extra points i think. but so far, i rarely know of locals who purposely go and choose to bunk with foreigners... dont ask me why, i dunno.
i just think they have really weird personalities... i once had a bunch of ang moh foreigners living in the same block at hall15 and they had some sort of "party" in the middle of the night and burnt the pantry!!!! they were like dead drunk and sleeping on the floor half naked. and there were like broken plates and beer bottles everywhere. and they always walk around in their underwear... and the brazen ones will just get out of the toilet wearing just a towel around their body after shower.

there was also this room with an african-american and china girls, and they actually boarded up the middle of the room with cardboard?!! so they didnt see each other at all and cannot cross over the other side. i always laughed like crazy everytime i walked past that room, can you imagine the emnity between them???!!!!

i think hall 3 all their blocks not bad, got a few friends staying there, and all their rooms and locations similar, no big disadvantage. cant really remember, but i thought the hall camp application form is given quite early on? i found it [the form] quite discriminating actually... i mean we are entering university and you still have to fill in trivial stuff like your height, weight, race etc... i thought since we are already going to be living together in the same hall, should just accept the differences right? just my 2 cents.

actually there are no special tips on staying in hall... just get some studying done lol!!

hey anyone here interested to change rooms to hall 4? I'm looking to shift towards the hall 8 and hall 3,12-14 side cuz I have alot of friends over there haha. Currently occupying a double room!

But my roomie does not stay in because his scholarship pays for the room hence you can have the whole room to yourself!
