      How does Andover compare to your home?

      Like I said before, Andover is like a 2nd home! Perhaps the only major difference is the food; I always look forward to tucking into Singapore’s local delights!


      What is an interesting experience while visiting another part of the world?

      In 8th grade, my class went on a trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand. Apart from it being absolutely magical (with the elephants, rafting, and performances), one of the most interesting experiences occurred when I went haggling in the night market with my friends. I’ve only every haggled in Malaysia and it was much easier there because I could speak the local language. In Thailand however, a combination of hand signs, basic English and teamwork got my mates and I a solid load of stuff to lug back to the school we were staying at.
