One would have thought that a school that has such a great capacity would have the basic amenities but it doesn't. Same goes for the rest of the schools in the...

    It was suppose to the monsoon season but the rain came late and the heat was absolutely crazy!The rivers have dried up and there's no breeze. Don't even bother looking for an air conditioner!! Soooo.. One way to get away from the heat is to hide in the shades of the trees.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hmm.. you may not want to see how the food is being cooked/ packed if you are squirmish.

    You may not even want to sit by the stall to eat your food unless u want to be constantly swatting flies instead of eating your food.. haha

    Favorite Dish: Instant noodles with some kind of meat... sometimes ignorance is bliss...

    Just eat.

    There is no nightlife at all. In fact it isn't very safe to go out once the sun has set. There are gangsters around.

    The streets are not lit at all, you will need torchlights if u absolutely need to get out.

  • Fireworks does not mean a celebration

    There was one night when we heard fireworks and got really excited coz we thought there was some procession or celebration going on.However, a student told us that it actually meant that sombody has passed away. So that explains the monk's prayers in the background as well.

    Miscellaneous: Standard of hygiene differs greatly from those in the city. Not for the weak hearted nor those with weak stomach...

    No fun especially where there are no proper flushing systems!

    Using the refurbished classroom..

    by cheapskate Written Jun 18, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: We completed the refurbishment for 4 classrooms in Kampung Kantuot High School.

    You can't imagine the sense of achievement i felt when i saw that the students were using the classrooms.

    I'm pretty sure it's an improvement from the previous dark and dreary condition that it was in. Looks brighter and cheery now.. :)
