NUS Law student Alvin Tan from Malaysia: My scholarship saves me more than $50,000 a year

Posted by temasektimes on October 18, 2012

While native Singaporeans have to fight tooth and nail to get into NUS Faculty of Law, one Malaysian student has the work cut short for him with an ASEAN scholarship to study there for four years entirely FREE OF CHARGE, thanks to the ‘generosity’ of Singapore taxpayers.

24 year old Alvin Tan, a third year undergraduate in NUS Law, became an instant ‘celebrity’ lately by posting explicit photos and videos of him having sex with his girlfriend on his blog.

Despite the massive controversy he stirred, he appeared nonchalant when interviewed by the Malaysian media on his scholarship and study in NUS:

“My scholarship saved me $50,000 in tuition fees and $6,000 in living expenses yearly. I do not have to pay a single cent in Singapore,” he proclaimed.

When asked if he is worried he may get expelled from NUS for his ‘exploits’, Alvin Tan said:

“I don’t really care if NUS take action against me. I am prepared to be expelled. Anyway, I have set up my own company here (in Malaysia) and is financially secure.”

Alvin Tan, who came from a relatively wealthy family in Malaysia, came to study in Sin Ming secondary school in Singapore on a ASEAN scholarship after which he went on to study in Raffles Junior College and NUS.

The ASEAN scholarship pays for ALL the tuition fees and living expenses of its foreign scholars and is BOND-FREE.

    Target his daily deals business, Zuupy.com. (fezzl pte ltd)

    Make it fail. His partner will suffer collateral damage.

    The only reason he does not fear the consequences of his actions is because the business is doing well n he has generated sufficient savings to absorb the knocks.

    Take away the money generator… His pride will suffer if his business fails because of this sex blog.

    Too harsh a punishment? He is smart n no doubt will start another business but tat will mean time n effort.

    Spread the word… Zuupy.com…. Make his business fail!!

    Such a character full of himself. Hope his business bombed and teach him humility. Obviously his gf has no future with him just for short time fun. Sg govt better wake up!

  5. whatcanwedo said

    Any remorse for their actions? See this:

    He is enjoying his celebrity status and milking it. A trip to the police station in Singapore will certainly wake him up.

    • Realist said

      To each his own and we should not judge their actions.
      It’s their life and they can do whatever they want to do with it but ultimately they have to be responsible for their actions or follies whatever.

    • Naivety said

      Such arrogance being displayed in the video!

      NUS should expel him straightaway & revoke his scholarship status immediately & please obtain the refund of the total fees paid from him!

    • This wasn’t even committed in Singapore.

    • Observer said

      His voice is croaking. He is affected. This is just a front.

      • observe not enough said

        Croaking voice is normal since he fucks like a frog. Of course he is affected when he knows he could have performed alot better. You need to observe more.

  6. rajkumar said

    Thousands of Singaporean parents send their teens at tremendous personal sacrifice for them to attain an education they are interested in.Many have good enough results but due to artificially imposed quotas they are denied entry in popular courses,usually Law,Medicine and Engineering.We give such foreign dirt a 200,000 a scholarship?I personally had to sell the family home and downgrade to pay for a five year Med school course for my daughter.Today, we are importing Burmese and other such foreign doctors.Honestly what is the government doing? She has graduated and is interning at the best hospital in Melbourne, vowing never to return. Can a small nation afford such a brain drain?

    • William Ng said

      I totally agree with you. I feel that the government is not seriously taking care of her citizen. Why go overboard with these non-citizen however, smart they maybe.

  7. Pink Panty Loong said

    WAHhhhh….Our government seems to be helping themselves very freely on our Singapore reserves leh. Free tuition plus free LIVING EXPENSES when we locals either have to pay through our nose to complete our tertiary education or even have to forgo the opportunity due to unaffordability!

  8. Alvin said

    At the very least, NUS or which ever Government agency is dishing out the scholarship should take the right action.
    He should return all three years scholarship money spent on him, since he has declared he does really need it. He has sponged off Singapore and prefers working in Malaysia anyway. The money should be used on more deserving students who is willing to make a difference and is appreciative of the opportunities given.
    What I don’t get and this has been a huge problem with scholarships and that is why are Scholarships given to students who can afford it? I mean why should the affluent be given more money to spend? Shouldn’t scholarships be given to those to need it more?

  9. Lim said

    This is the kind of govt who lets its citizens borrow money for their children to study in universities but splurges on dubious foreign ingrates like Alvin – who then bites their hands that feed them branding them as `semi-competent yet greedy politicians in charge, making life a living hell for everyone with price hikes, non-sensible immigration policies, and even more new laws to curb personal freedoms or scare people into voluntarily surrendering their freedoms’ – which I am inclined to agree with…

  10. Eddie said

    He is NOT the only one. There are THOUSANDS of foreigners given FREE everything to study here – BOND FREE.

    I cant understand the logic of the governments’ actions. You are bringing these people in, increase the competition for everything, drive up cost of living and in the end got screwed by many of these “scholars” because they just return to their homeland armed with better knowledge without even a word of thank you to you. Why the heck are you doing this??

    I have not heard of any other countries doing stupid things like this. If you want to do stupid things like this, at least BOND THEM!

    • Ex-ASEAN Scholar said

      I think the news here is a bit misleading. ASEAN Scholars doing ‘O’ or ‘A’ Level are not bonded, but the ones in university would need to serve a 3-year bond.

      And as far as I know, most of these scholars actually stay back and work in Singapore, and eventually integrate into the society. In the National Day Rally speech given by PM, he mentioned Le Ha Thanh Mai who is also an ASEAN scholar and how she struggled and eventually integrated with the locals.

      • Alan said

        I have known many Asean scholars studied and worked in Singapore for many, many years, never served a day of NS, but refused to become Singapore citizen for fear that his sons have to served NS.

    wah lan eh… his GF looks like shit!! BAH GEH some more!! PUI…..

    • Kreme said

      Of course his parents are more liberal. Shes just one of his toys he can chuck off. Dumb broad ( agree she is ugly and not even smart) will just end up with a bad reputation and no future. He on the other hand will have a series of dumb females for his exploitation business

  12. oracle said

    These guys are my heros.. I wish Singaporeans had this kind of balls. But guess not. Together with half competent greedy ministers and the 60% who fear their own shadow, …not in a million years!! LOL

    • You need some new heros…seriously

      • hero or zero said

        new heros churned out by the PAP factory ?
        to replace old heros like mahbt, wongks, raymondlim, georgeyeo, limhweehua?
        import heros like foomeehar, puthuchery, leebeewah, ?

    • True BLUE Sinkie said

      This guy got guts and lots of brains and initiatives. He is brilliant. Are any of the dumb PAP-programmed singaporean students able to come up with such ideas and initiatives? NO of course. Because Singaporeans are so afraid of everything damn thing and the PAP that Singaporeans are brain-dead. Malaysians are free spirit and have no inhibitions or fear…. more creative instead

    Everybody want to loves what they want to do…
    Certain action may not accepted to others, some can accept.
    Today we have lesbian pub, gay pub openly in Tanjong Pagar area, should the pub be close that affect our society and moral teaching in school
    In the old days nothing let this happen before
    The demograhic change as younger x,y,z emerged
    There will be certain code of conducts for certain profession.
    If an celebrites act in R rated movies and consider arts or even naked painting is acceptable condsider art
    Today not acceptable by society may acceptable in future generation, we ,must be moderate to monitor the action can cause havoc and unhapppiness in our nation
    In other western countries, they have human rights or gay rights and gay marriage, are we going to sentence on this group of people, most of this group are professional, university lecturer, doctors, lawyers…etc

    • Darwis said

      well said!

    • Togma said

      I think there is a difference between going public about something that is considered private and keeping things under wraps.

      This is akin to not washing the family’s dirty linens in the public when EVERY family sure has their own downs, difficulities and unspeakable moments to a certain extent.

      Since it is still (thank goodness?) not a norm for people to kiss, record and show to public who they romped, along with a comment and review attached…I think what Alvin did is still not considered acceptable by social norms.

      I do agree he has the rights to do what he wants but the way he responded to the questions and the less than grateful attitude he has for what was given to him was unbecoming, whoever it might be.

      As such, I think the public outcry was more against his character and no longer so much for his nude pictures he made public.

    “The ASEAN scholarship pays for ALL the tuition fees and living expenses of its foreign scholars and is BOND-FREE.”

    Bond-free? This is ridiculous. Why are they throwing money at these foreigners?

    Most of them have absolutely no intention of remaining in Singapore and contributing to the country after they graduate.

    And yet when we ask them to spend a little more on the poor and elderly in Singapore, they yell “Show us the money”.

    • Ex-ASEAN Scholar said

      It’s not bond-free. The information given is inaccurate. ASEAN scholars in universities would need to serve a 3-year bond. And almost everyone wants to stay after graduation if they could find a job. Why would bother return home and earn their own currencies which amount to nothing in Singapore dollars?

      post on PM Lee’s FB, invite him to watch Alvin’s video while doing it with HC…..
      or is it the other way round ? Advise PM Lee to show Alvin’s video at the next parliament sitting and make sure his old man is in attendance.

    Najib is feeling lonely, he has a high-priced house call for your intellectual ASEAN ‘swingster’ service at Putrajaya.
    you can earn back ALL the $50,000 tuition fees in one night, but its in Malaysian ringgit (RM), so need to come back again next week.

  19. Ron said

    Alvin is telling Spore…screw you. And he did it on video to show he is doing it.

    He is a disgrace to Malaysia and I cannot imagine someone stooping so low. His place of business should be on the stage in a Pattaya sex club. To be a schorship student is a great honour and a life-time honour. And he is throwing shit at this honour.

    I too was a scholarshp student and I am always proud of what I achieved and so far I have not read of any scandal for other scholars under the same scholarship.

    • horay said

      screw you Ron, who wants to read about wankers ? you ? then TT might as well close shop lah! or you come up with your own blog and talk about wanking.
      don’t judge him because you have no guts to go all the way,
      and don’t give me your scholar BS. mostly cocksucking the PAP
      we already have enough donkeys who were ex scholars runing this country!!!
      so far did Alvin shaft your ass, your wife, sister, maid, gf ?
      did he drug the girl in question ? it was mutual.

  20. No more FT said

    Agreed with Rajkumar. Many Singaporean parents are doing wat u did for your daughter. Singaporeans are working very hard to provide for our children’s education. Foreigners get free education here and squeeze us out of our job. Why should we give free education to foreigners and not our children ? Why ???

      you are farking wrong!

      people like Lee Lip Hong (principal), Chua Ren Cheng (MOE ‘scholar’/H.O.D.), Jonathan Wong (MOE ‘scholar’), Ng Boon Gay (CNB Director), Peter Lim (SCDF Chief), insert [SAF Officer’s name], insert [MFA officer’s name], insert [MOM officer’s name], insert [SLA officer’s name], insert [LTA officer’s name], insert [Perm. Secretary’s name], insert [GLC director’s name], insert [Stat Board director’s name] will need sexually ‘outgoing’ and ‘like-minded’ lawyers like Tan, as he is able to understand and service the client’s needs.

      current public executive officers, who were former ASEAN scholars will get ‘alumni’ discount.from Tan.

  31. saranina Jones said

    IT MAY be a personal decision to express themselves sexually in the open but their decision to do this is completely SELFISH. Let me say again – COMPLETELY SELFISH. They may enjoy the limelight, enjoy our SG taxpayer-funded FREE education but they have hurt their family and especially their parents the most. Think about how disgraceful it is to do this and to humiliate their family through what they’ve done.

    And 5 years from now when they have sobered up and humbled, they’ll realize it was one of the most stupid things they’ve done. Once your reputation and your nude pics circulate on the internet, you can NEVER get them back. They can kiss their FUTURE professional lives goodbye. These days, most employers actually google their potential employees before hiring. Learn from their mistakes. NEVER post any compromising pictures or videos of you online for that one moment of “fame” to only regret it for the rest of your lives……. PS: Alvin can kiss his business ZUUPY.COM goodbye – btw, have some originality, they are basically copying Living Social business model -pssst!!

  32. saranina Jones said

    BTW, my advise is to get out of SG if you can and go out and strike out on your own. Take a chance cause what else is really left in SG? It is getting harder to find jobs with the influx of so-called ‘foreign talent’ (yeah right.) and cost of living in SG is getting ridiculous. When you’ve a garment that’s not completely FOR it’s own citizens, you are doom for failure. I think you’ll have a better chance at success elsewhere where it is easier to set up your own business or work for an employer and get better wages and benefits………

  33. Francischuanghli said

    Surprise , surprise. It is the stupidity of our Gov’t who had play us up as Singaporean. We are really keeping a rat in our own pocket.

    PAP also sponsor students from Bangladesh.. many of them studying here in the schools and universities. Singapore is breeding potential Terrorists from Bangladesh which is muslim country.
