iCARE’s Makan Kaki and vintage SG Tours will be the most cherished days of my NUS student life. I had the opportunity to connect, dine, play and share stories from students across different countries. These events helped me to learn Singapore's culture, history, food, and a little bit of Singlish from the local students who were part of the group.
