STRANGE MEN ASKING WEIRD PERSONAL QUESTIONS AT RANDOM MRT STATIONS

A little over 6 months ago, 2 guys approached me as I dropped my girlfriend off (I'm a dude), asking how to get to Jurong East. They then followed up by asking how long it takes to get there, and shortly asks where I stay, and where I work, I don't answer of course but I find it odd, they even tried asking for my number, but I walked away. Fast forward to today, I'm coming off the MRT headed up an exit when a guy taps my shoulder and asks the exact same questions. Initially I just answered the first two regarding travel, but when they asked if I were from around the area I just buzzed off.

Ever since Kaplan is making so much money, they does not provide any bursaries / scholarships to students who did well or offer help to needy students. Sadly, they continue to increase school fees annually in their various courses. Students who fail their modules have to pay nearly S$2K to repeat a module. That's extremely costly! Many students might have failed many models, however, could Kaplan feel the pain that many low income students are going through to pay and pay to repeat the modules?
