You know you’re from ACJC when..

– You have the hottest guys/girls in town

– Almost half of your friends speak Chinese worse than AngMoh

– You have to deal with such a thing called “swim pe”

– Your pants is hanging on to your butt like it’s holding on to dear life

– Your skirt is a mini-skirt… Plus your shirt is never tucked in but you pretend it is

– It takes you 18 years to realize the majority listen to Chinese music

– From time to time you get a sense that any good address should end with the phrase “The Best is Yet to Be”

– You and your friends go crazy when a turtle car scoots into view.

– You have a principal say “DONCH” all the time…. Lim H…. S…n.

– You start running out of class once your friends start singing “Happy Birthday”, then you find yourself in the pool naked after they catch you

– You feel like telling Gurmit to shove the $10 (fine for stepping on the track) up his ass.

– You think Jimmy Tong is a hero.

– Potential councilors campaign by promising to ensure that there will be a constant supply of toilet paper in the girl’s toilet

– You HAVE to alter your skirt, or you’re not cool and people laugh at you.

– When other people give you funny looks when you say the coolest place is the void deck.

– You call the stands, the bleachers.

– When u ignore the rumors about the western stall auntie refrying her soggy fries in yesterdays’ already black oil and queue up anyway cause its the shortest queue in the canteen.

– you don’t have to retake Chinese even if you got less than A2

– I can ask you if she’s really the RJC prom queen and you know exactly who I’m talking about

– When you rejoice and jump up and down in LT4 after receiving a C6 for Chinese, shouting “thank you Lord!” and see people running towards you with congratulatory hugs

– Red, Blue and Gold start becoming your favourite colors

– When you actually miss chapel, and When you actually expect to hear Majulah Singapura every morning in perfect acapella harmony.

– No, it’s not a $10 fine for walking on the track anymore. by (2003/2004) it was RUN TEN ROUNDS around the track. A group of guys from my batch actually had to, in full school uniform.

– When you just have to study in school during exams even though it’s damn noisy and you have to shove your iPod into your ears all the time.

– You think that your school uniform is cooler with the shirt than the yellow PE T-shirt.

– You know that “mass pe” is just a cover for “mass suicide”.

– You know the “ham-sum” joke.

– You know you’re from ACJC when you hear “Mass PE” and cower in fear ;)

– When u don’t bat an eyelid when people call you snob or rich kid…

– When you certainly don’t drive Mers on a lease

– When you think a 4-minute cab ride to Holland Village is perfectly acceptable and commonly practised!

– You have climbed down the side of the school near the canteen, through the fence behind the tennis courts or conned the guard with fake mc ’cause you’re late

– You never wish to trade your time there for anything else! You shudder to think that you could have been at any other junior college!

– When you clamour for all the school-based shirts (the AC shirt, the polo, the house shirts, the CCA shirts) but they’re all sold out way too fast. :(

– You leave a mountain of Hacks sweet wrappers at the back of every Lecture Theatre you enter..

– You wanted a pink slip to zhao class… or was it the blue slip?
