Study Abroad : The hostel and prison just one road apart

【明報專訊】I was given the option to choose between two student hostels when admitted to my current school. One is closer to school and one farther. I chose the farther one partly because it is new, and because of its name — Liberty Gardens — which fits most teenagers' dream, including mine, to enjoy a carefree and happy life on our own. In reality, of course, we have to abide by many hostel rules and there are limits to liberty.
