Netizens want sex blogger to give up place in NUS

SINGAPORE - For being an Asean scholar for the past seven years, he would have been given more than $110,000 in allowances, accommodation, transportation, school fees and more.

But now some say it has been entirely wasted on him.

The netizens' comments come after Mr Alvin Tan, 23, a National University of Singapore (NUS) law undergrad, hit newspaper headlines for setting up an explicit sex blog with a friend, Miss Vivian Lee, also 23.

To add to their chagrin, the Malaysian had also bad-mouthed Singapore on his Facebook, despite having studied here for seven years.

NUS said it is investigating the case and may take disciplinary action.

In the meantime, Mr Tan met and spoke to The New Paper yesterday, speaking eloquently and giving candid responses.

He acknowledges that many netizens have asked for his scholarship to be taken away and the money to be repaid, but his response is a simple "Why would I?"

"Why should I pay back if I'm not required to?" he asked.

"There are people who have been saying 'Take away his scholarship and make him pay back; take away his place in NUS and give it to a more deserving Singaporean'.

"If anyone thinks that they can do any better in law school, they are welcome to try."
