What to Expect in Your First Year at the Student Residence / 新生入宿小贴士


1. Never hesitate to ask questions.

Don’t ever think that other student residents will get annoyed at you for asking too many questions. People are always willing to help, even though they might look like they’ve had enough of university life, trust me they will be happy to get questions they know how to answer by heart.

2. Cheap places to get food.

I know that closest place is Festival Walk – and everything around the university seems to be expensive besides canteen food of course. You can take the bus right in front of the residence, either 2F or 86C, go down to Sham Shui Po Market or if you want to do grocery shopping for dry goods go to Ka Hing Supermarket. It’s really ridiculous how cheap everything can get. You can walk down past Shek Kip Mei Park to get to Nam Shan for some Gai Dan Jai, best and cheapest in all Hong Kong (I think).

3. Staying Fit.

You will be eating a lot of instant noodles. It’s ok. It happens. But if you don’t watch out you will get pretty unfit and gain bad weight. There is a Fitness Assembly on the ground floor of Hall 11 you can go on the treadmill there or if you want to jog outdoors I highly recommend Shek Kip Mei Reservoir Playground. It has a 600-metre jogging track, it’s just a 10-minute walk past the CMC building.

4. Befriend your roommate.

You’re going to breathe each other’s air for a whole year so might as well try your best to have a really good relationship with them in the beginning. If there are things that tick you off a bit – then talk it out rather than keeping it all in.

5. Befriend people in the Student Residence.

It can be daunting to start conversations with strangers but that initial step is the only thing you have to do to gain friends that you’ll probably keep your entire lifetime. It can get stressful at first but trust me there’s bound to be somebody.

Truly Yours,
Your Senior

P.S. I hope you read it thoroughly I’ve experienced it all.

1. 不必猶豫,勇敢發問


2. 平價美食,就在身邊

雖然最近的覓食地點非又一城莫屬,但周邊的餐廳,甚至學校食堂,價格都略顯高昂。其實,你只需在宿舍邊的巴士站搭乘2F 或86C ,就可以去深水埗街市;若是想屯些食品雜貨,也可以去家興超級市場–你一定會為此處貨品之實惠而驚奇不已。當然,也可以選擇向下走,穿過石硤尾公園去往南山邨,去嚐嚐(我心中)全港最美味而又平價的雞蛋仔。

3. 勤加鍛煉,保持健康

住宿舍,你可能會吃很多泡麵。這其實沒關係,大家都差不多。然而,一旦掉以輕心,不加克制,就可能因此體質變差,迅速發胖。舍堂十一(Hall 11)底層的健身房是個不錯的選擇,那裏有各種運動器械可供使用;如果選擇戶外慢跑,我強力推薦石硤尾水庫遊樂場—那裏有600米慢跑跑道,而且很近,從邵逸夫創意媒體中心往前走上10分鐘即達。

4. 與室友成為小夥伴


5. 與大家成為好朋友




P.S. 希望你能認真讀完,因為這全都是我的親身經驗哦。

Opening hours:
Mon-Sat: 07:30-21:00

Off-campus Outlets

  1. Man Kee Cart Noodle

Man Kee has been a well-known restaurant for hall residents to go for a quick supper. This local restaurant offers a typical “make-to-order” Hong Kong-style noodle where you can pick your own choices of food combination.  We call this che jai meen here which literally means “cart noodles” because of its humble origin as a cheap cuisine served for the lower class on food carts during the 1950’s.

Opening hours:
Daily: 24 hours
Location: No. 121, Fuk Wing Street, Sham Shui Po, Kowloon

  1. Sushi-Chicken

Just by the name, people might confuse this with Japanese cuisine. Sushi-chicken is driven from the Chinese pronunciation of “tearing chicken meat by hand”, you can choose either rice or instant noodle for the mains. A must-try near the campus!

Opening hours: Random (So basically it’s by fate whether you can have it or not!)
Location: Shop G94-95, Pak Tin Shopping Centre, Shek Kip Mei, Kowloon

How To Survive In MTR During Rush Hours / 在地鐵Rush Hours 遊走的生存之道


As Hong Kong is as small as a sesame when reading a world map, you can basically get around the city by using public transportation. Slightly overpriced, but the quickest way to travel around is taking Hong Kong’s underground rail – the MTR. Although our residents do not need to travel far to attend classes, many of us do head out for work or internships and MTR is usually the top choice.

The MTR has been a clean, fast, and safe transportation means for around four million people daily. If you are a newcomer in Hong Kong, just read the station map and you can easily master the transport system – not if you are travelling during peak hours.

Take note if you are going to take the MTR at times like 7:30 to 9 AM, and 5:30 to 7:30 PM during the weekdays, especially if you are going through interchange stations such as Kowloon Tong, Prince Edward, Mongkok, Admiralty, Central, North Point and Yau Tong.

  1. Don’t be surprised if you find strangers getting a little bit too intimate to you, well basically with everyone around you (but do remember you need to be cautious and protect yourself as well).
  2. There is no mercy when it comes to getting on an already crowded train… Try to squeeze in whenever you see a space. Even if you don’t, other people will.
  3. If you need to transfer to another line, try interchanging a station earlier than the recommended one. For example, if you want to go to Wan Chai from Kowloon Tong, interchange station at Prince Edward instead of Mongkok, and take one more station to Central to interchange the Island Line. There is a higher chance for you to get on the train quicker.
  4. Sometimes you don’t have a choice if you need to go to work or have an appointment. But the best thing to do is to avoid the crowd and leave either earlier or later.

If you ever have the chance to take the MTR during peak hours, hope these few tips can help. After all, this is only one of the useful things that I learn during my internship program this summer.

如果你於工作天需要在早上 (例如七時半至九時左右),或是傍晚 (例如五時半至七時半左右) 乘搭地䥫,尤其是需要於換乘站轉換列車,如九龍塘、太子、旺角、金鐘、中環、北角及油塘等車站,請注意以下事項:

  1. 如果你發現車廂裹很擠逼,或是與陌生人有點貼近,請不要驚訝。(但千萬記住要謹慎和懂得保護自己)
  2. 當你要進入一卡已經很擠逼的車廂時,不要只想着讓別人先進,這可時不能憐憫的時刻呢!只要看到車廂內有空位便要嘗試擠進去。即使你不這樣做別人也會呢!
  3. 如果你需要轉乘另一條線路,請盡量於建議轉乘站的早一個站轉乘。例如,如果你想要從九龍塘去灣仔,請在太子轉乘列車,而不是旺角站,並且需要多乘一個站到中環站轉乘港島線。這樣你才能避免遇上太多轉乘列車的乘客,因此有較高的機會成功上車。
  4. 有時候,當你需要去工作,或有預約的話,並沒有避免地鐵擠塞的機會。但可以的話,應該盡量避免繁免於繁忙時段乘撘地鐵,或者提早或延後乘搭時間。

What Not To Do During Midterms / 四件在考試期間一定不可以做的事情


As a third year who is currently facing her 6th midterm season, I must admit that things haven’t always gone to plan this time of the semester, and although I’m no expert, I’d like to share some thoughts on what not to do to survive these next few weeks of midterms.

  1. Don’t freak out
    If you’re like most other students, you have probably just realised you are in for some long days (and nights) studying stuff you might or might not have seen before in your life. Don’t freak out! You can do this. You are built for this. You voluntarily signed up for this, and you’ll live through it. Try to not spend too much time worrying.
  2. Don’t take time for granted
    Time is scarce, but your greatest weapon. Use it to your strength. This means cutting down on many things that are usually part of your lifestyle, including hanging out with friends, watching (and re-watching) TV shows and movies, aimlessly browsing the internet and tagging your friends in all those dank memes. Basically, the procrastination needs to be put to a hold. Harder said than done, I know, but when you catch up with all those missed episodes and friends after midterms, it’s a sweet feeling.Use your time wisely. Have daily study goals, push to get them done. Always have some time for yourself to relax and move your muscles.
  3. Don’t get distracted
    Focus on your work. Ignore that buzzing phone, that notification from Facebook, or the fascinating pattern of the wall in front of you. If you listen to music while studying, make sure it’s not too loud/catchy. Research suggests classical music to increase productivity.
  4. Don’t neglect yourself
    Don’t forget to nourish yourself and keep yourself hydrated. Keep a cap on those coffees and Red Bulls. Always carry a water bottle to study. Get a decent amount of sleep.
    While you probably don’t need to go all out on elaborate homemade meals, keep track of what you’re eating. Efficient cooking is must, but if you eat out, make sure you eat the right food that actually makes your brain function. You need to be mentally as well as physically on top of your game.

Good luck, my fellow midterm fighters. May the grades be ever in your favour.

Writer:   Riddhi SUKHIA (Jockey Club Academy Hall)


  1. 不要害怕
  2. 珍惜時間
  3. 不要分心
  4. 不要忽略了自己在溫習的同時也不要忙了滋潤一下自己,一杯咖啡或能量飲品定必能幫上忙,也不忘上帶上適量的水。充足的睡眠也可以令你的溫習更有效率!食物亦是重要的一環! 要時刻留意著自己的餐單,而且需要高效率的煮食。如果外出用饍,最好選擇一些可以幫助腦部運作的食物。除了身體,腦部亦需要時刻備戰,去迎接接踵而來的mid-term。

The Single’s Guide to Surviving Valentine’s Day: Do’s and Don’ts / 單身自救小秘訣:如何幸福地度過單身情人節?


Tis’ the season of love! To your left, couples are hugging. To your right, couples are holding hands. Anywhere your eyes roam, you just can’t avoid the public display of affection. Your eyes burn, you feel trapped. It’s okay, dear friends, we single people should unite to defeat this plague called Valentines Day.

I am here to help you survive valentine’s day without being a complete mess.


  1. Splurge on (discounted) chocolates


It’s okay, your scale understands. Diet starts tomorrow, anyways. You are allowed to buy as many Ferrero Rocher as you want. Splurge on those Hershey’s! Indulge in those sweet gooey goodness called chocolate because you need extra TLC today. We got your back.

  1. Netflix (and maybe chill?)


Dive into your cheesy chick flicks movie marathon. Bawl your eyes out to The Notebook or any other sappy Nicholas Sparks movie. Realise that there are 60 million other people doing the exact same thing like you today. You’re not alone! Hoorah for single people around the world!

  1. Stay in


It’s freezing outside! Why even bother going out? Restaurants will be occupied with couples and you would probably have to wait (in the freezing cold!) to get a table… for one. Spare yourself the effort and order a take-out. Better yet, stay warm inside your blanket with a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy your me-time.

  1. Swipe away


Your best friends might be out with their S.O. and you have no dinner plans. Who’s telling that you can’t swipe away on Tinder today (or any other day) really? You might get an impromptu date or even just find friends to hang out with.


  1. Drunk dial your ex


It’s okay to feel lonely, but once the booze kicks in and you feel the utmost urge to dial your ex, stop. A quick ‘hi’ will turn into an ‘I miss you’ and nothing good ever comes out after that. You don’t need that extra drama in your life, trust me.

  1. Wallow in self-pity


All jokes aside, it’s great to be single! We have the freedom to do whatever we want. We don’t have to worry about gift buying, planning surprises or picnic dates. We don’t have to spend time on Pinterest, searching for the most creative heartfelt gift that takes ages to make. We literally just saved our self all that hassle. And honestly, you don’t require anyone to make you happy. Make yourself so happy so that when others look at you, they feel happy too.

  1. Complain on social media about how ‘single’ you are


Don’t be a party pooper. Instead call your loved ones (family, friends, cousins, pets… and the list goes on) and tell them how grateful you are to have them in your life. Don’t be salty about being single and not receiving love, when you can be spreading love elsewhere.

As cliché as it sounds, spreading love shouldn’t be a one day occasion. Especially with all the pain in the world right now, one of the things we can do to help is to keep spreading love and positivity, not only to your significant other but also the world.

I hope you have a great valentine’s day because I sure will!

Alcohol, Devil or Angel? / 酒精:惡魔還是天使?


Just imagine this scene: you are lying in bed with a bottle of Vodka in hand, looking out of the window at the night sky. Maybe there are even more empty beer cans around. Isn’t this a classical scene in films when a character falls into the lowest point of his/her life? Well, bottles are never a useful treatment for your stress. All it can do is merely providing you with a brief escape from the dark side of your life. What else can you get after all the unconsciousness and false comfort?

I know clearly that university life can be full of stress. A failure of an important exam or interview, a broken relationship, financial burdens or some emotional problems you are afraid to expose to others… these can all become triggers of alcohol abuse. But look around, what else do you have? Don’t forget that you still have people backing you up. Give a call to your parents or old friends, to those who are there for you all the time; put on your sportswear and go for a run at night, letting the stress evaporate with your sweat; visit the SDS Counselling Service to receive help on dealing with your emotional problems, as pouring negative emotions out is the best way to alleviate your stress.

A bit of social drinking may be relaxing and comforting. However, you cannot pretend that everything is fine with bottles of wine. Sometimes it gets worse. Alcohol abuse will bring you even more emotional turmoils, let alone physical harm. As drinking is a personal choice, just bear in mind the following tips for safe drinking:

  1. Eat something before and while you drink.
  2. Don’t drink too fast.
  3. Think before you combine anything.
  4. Try to avoid drinking games.

  1. 喝酒之前和喝酒時都吃點東西;
  2. 不要喝得太快;
  3. 不要隨便混合不同的酒類;
  4. 盡量不參加喝酒遊戲

Why Living in the Halls is like Going on a Working Holiday? / 為何在宿舍居住與工作假期無異?


Being famous for having the fastest pace of life, students in Hong Kong seldom get the chance to go on working holidays. However, you are actually experiencing a similar life of working holiday just by living in hall!


On one hand, living in the halls provide you with various learning opportunities to enhance personal development. You are able to meet people coming from different places such as Germany, Korea, and Mainland China, etc. It’s just like traveling around the world to meet new friends from different countries! You are highly encouraged to chat with exchange students in this multicultural community. Through interacting with people of diverse backgrounds, you get to know more about cultures and values of different countries, and hence develop cultural sensitivity and competence!

On the other hand, inter-hall competitions such as basketball, soccer and table tennis, or performing arts like music and photo-taking organised by halls bring you opportunities to engage with these non-local residents as well. Throughout these competitions, you learn various sports’ skills and appreciate arts of different styles. Don’t you think this experience is similar to the life of working holidays when you have the chance to interact and compete with foreigners. The hall life in CityU is offering you with similar, valuable experiences!

What’s more, you will be trained to be independent with improved communication and problem solving skills without the need of going abroad. Similar to the working holidays, you have to take good care of yourself and manage your time effectively. You have to face challenges on your own rather than seeking help from your parents.

To sum it up, living in halls is simply a mini local “working holiday” experience! Without traveling overseas, you are able to enrich your university life and enhance your personal development by living and interacting with residents in this multicultural residence community!

Freshmen Blues / 新生的煩惱



Life in college can be a whirlwind of a ride as much as it can be quaint and dull, many a consequence of ones exposure to the happenings on campus and large. I can remember those first few weeks of freshman year where social comfort would end well within those folk from your school, hometown and city, leaving room to get left behind from much adventure, especially regretful if you’re a non-local student. I would love to have spent that cozy little weekend before the midterms hiking up to Lions Rock than having waited after 2 years here to have checked that one-off, or having spent that first summer in the city skipping a trip down to Sai-Kung until the following winter; I shake my head. Not to worry there fellas, I’ve got a few tips that shall come to your rescue to wring those freshman blues.

  1. Spend time away from your room: Activities abound at all corners of the university: floor, hall, residence campus, university campus and even in other neighbouring Uni-s. Getting into sport clubs and societies would highly enrich social life in college while also helping you take care of your body-mind; I can still remember my Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings by the Shing-mun River in Fo Tan, training with the university row-crew, those sessions on the erg machine reminding my lower back of its present good fortunes. So GET OUT and GET BUSY.
  2. Grades, yes employers do care-earnestly: I’m slightly smitten with distaste remembering  advice I once followed from naysayers who cared little for grades; believe me, you need to maintain good grades-big league, and suggest that good attention be given to planning for deadlines and to submit college assignments on time. A more than a few studies care to show that falling grades are a major source of college blues and wavering emotion among freshman, so therefore PLAN PROPERLY.
  3. Volunteer: The best kind of service is the one that seeks nothing in return. Opportunities to get involved in the community and spread good will are amply available around us. To name a few like the City Youth Empowerment Project, the Food Angel soup kitchen and tutoring sessions at the Shek Kip Mei primary schools are a few ways to invest your free time for the benefit of our community around us. So start HELPING OUT!
  4. Campus jobs: A wonderful way to not only meet new mates but also get a little remuneration for your efforts would certainly come in handy on the Monday outings at Billy’s, so let’s WORK IT.
  5. HK Bustle: For a city that is ubiquitous for its nocturnal hustle, there is plenty of niche spots to visit for all times of the day. I’ll let you in on a list and you folk decide to make your own. Yes, ADVENTURE!  http://travel.cnn.com/hong-kong/play/50-secret-tips-hong-kong-sightseeing-371481

  1. 別總是宅在房間裏:大學裏有數不盡的活動等待著你去發掘:樓層裏的活動,宿舍裏的,校園裏的,甚至是香港其他院校的活動。參加運動型社團能大大豐富你的社交生活,同時助你保持身心健康。我至今仍記得我曾經在火炭的城門河畔和城大划船校隊一起訓練的時光,正是那些在室內划船機上的練習造就了我現在健康的下背脊椎。所以走出房間,讓自己忙碌起來吧。
  1. 成績:你未來的老板一定會考慮你的大學成績:我至今仍爲自己曾聽從了一些老是否認GPA重要性的人的建議而感到懊惱;相信我,你需要保持優異成績——一個不小的挑戰,並且我建議提前做好學習規劃,按時交作業。許多調查都表明成績下降是大學新生感到煩惱和情緒不穩定的一個主要源頭,因此請制定適合自己的學習計劃。
  1. 義工:最有價值的服務便是義工這種無償服務了。我們身邊有很多這種讓我們能夠深入社區服務了解社會的機會。比如說「城青優權計劃」義工項目、惜食堂、到石硖尾小學替學童補習等等,這都是值得你投入閒餘時間來促進社區建設的項目。所以開始你自己的義工之旅吧。
  1. 校園兼職:一個不僅能讓你認識新朋友,還能讓你獲得一些酬金的絕佳途徑,所以開始找適合你的校園兼職吧!
  1. 探索香港:在這樣一個連夜生活都很豐富的城市,你全天都能找到適合你的絕妙去處。你一定能在下面的清單上找到你自己鍾愛的香港一隅。沒錯,開始你的探索之旅吧!http://travel.cnn.com/hong-kong/play/50-secret-tips-hong-kong-sightseeing-371481

What NOT to Do with Your Roommate / 對待室友的7個不


The Student Residence is your home where memories stay for life. Your roommate is by your side at all time so never do harm to him/her. No matter where he/her comes from, treat them with the greatest Hong Kong hospitality! Last time, we talked about what to do with your roommate. Now, I would like to show you the not-to-do list:

  1. Abandon the room. It’s your very own room and a home between you two. It would be a shame if you are always absent from your roommate’s hall life.
  2. Be a slob. No one likes sweeping or vacuuming. However, by respecting each other and sharing common responsibilities with a roommate, it makes life easier. You can establish a schedule for chore shifts. Regular cleanup with your roommate polishes your living space and also your relationship!
  3. Produce unnecessary disturbance. When your roommate is studying, sleeping or trying to sleep, making noises is inconsiderate. You may keep the noise and light levels down. Don’t blast your music or have a loud conversation on your phone. You don’t want to be the reason for his/her failed English test the next morning.
  4. Leave the air conditioner on when you leave. Even though the fee is cheap, the hours add up and the cost will be a huge amount. Just press the button!
  5. Never bring your key along when you go out. When you go home, you may have someone to open the door for you (your parents or siblings). Now you are in the residence, your roommate is not going to be your doorman. Keep your key on you!
  6. Leave your toilet un-flushed. I’m not going to lecture you on personal hygiene. Just wish you luck when greeting flies, mosquitoes and other unimaginable creatures you wish not to see.
  7. Keep a pet. We know animal are our friends.  However, keeping animals in hall does not only cause hygiene issues, it is also a violation to hall rules and may receive a penalty as heavy as a hall suspension.  Volunteering for animal welfare organisation is a great alternative!

  1. 丟下房間不管。這是你的房間,好比你兩口子的家。作為室友的你如果總是不在,你室友的大學生活將會黯然失色。
  2. 把房間弄得亂成一團糟。沒有人喜歡像灰姑娘一樣吸塵掃地,但要是能與室友互相尊重,一起分擔責任,事情就易辦了。你可以定下家務表或規則一起定期清潔,令居家環境眼前一亮。
  3. 製造不必要的騷擾。當室友正在溫習、睡覺或打瞌睡時,你在一邊吵鬧是很不貼心的。音量和光度可以盡量減低。不要大聲播放音樂、講電話。你絕不想成為他明早英文測驗不合格的幕後推手。
  4. 離開時忘了關冷氣。雖然費用挺划算,但加起來就一點都不便宜了。只要你一指之力按個按鈕而已。
  5. 總不帶/丟失門卡。任何時間回宿舍,都要個人幫你開門。以前有你媽,現在就變成你室友了,但他/她並沒有責任要給你看門,所以門卡還是隨身袋穩好了。
  6. 不沖廁。長氣說話不多講了,希望你不會遇到蒼蠅、蚊子或者其他難以想象的生物吧。
  7. 養寵物。雖知動物是我們的朋友,可是在宿舍飼養動物不但會影響環境衛生,更是一種違規的行為,違規者可被停宿。心癢的話,自個兒到動物保護團體當義工是另一種不錯的選擇!
