Oh yeah, usually students from APU and IMU would stay here - this is actually the place where we go and make homework too haha. Funny coz these places in real life don’t look as nice, oops, sorry just my opinion :smiley:

Savanna is I think is the most decent and one of the nearest to IMU, not bad la but very expense for students like me, good thing I drive to school.
