It hasn’t been one of my easiest semesters at NUS, though not the toughest (yet!); with numerous deadlines, presentations, and job interviews coming up, it’s a wonder that I or my peers manage to make it through the day without having to head to the nearest coffee joint for that much needed cuppa.
So I was pleasantly surprised when I opened my door this morning to find that my neighbour had left me a bottle of Chicken’s Essence, along with a short and sweet note of encouragement for my interview today!
For those of you who don’t know, Chicken’s Essence is commonly associated with those ad campaigns featuring Singapore’s top scorers for the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE), because that’s exactly what it’s for: to boost your brain power for important things like exams! Normally, it’s the moms who would give it to their children in the hope of giving them that much needed boost during this stressful period.
I don’t know much about Chicken’s Essence, but I’m guessing that it’s worth quite a bit even though it’s only one bottle. Of course, I was very touched at my neighbour’s gesture! It’s always nice to know that there are people who care about you when you least expect it. 😀
What nice things have your neighbours done for you, and vice versa? C:
