See you in the Fall

September 7th, 2005 by MrLuxuryFashionGuru

I just had a piece of home-made kueh bankit and a sip of Wyndham’s Estate cabernet.  It made me think of communion so I gave thanks.

I’m all done packing and there’s actually space to spare in my bags.  And it’s only past 3am.  Praise God!

On Monday’s episode of America’s Next Top Model, the girls were made to simulate being a tv correspondent covering fashion week in Paris by reading off a tele-prompter on-camera.  What a fiasco.  Never mind that not one of them could pronounce “Hermes” (or correctly read “Gisele Bundchen” or “Christian Lacroix” – what kind of aspiring fashion models are these??), they were even completely unable to read words like magenta and technicolor!?  Unbelievable and also very sad.

Which reminds me of two things:

Firstly, public school systems all over the world have major (but different) problems.  I’ve sketched out the outline for an essay on why I think people ought to stop being completely ungrateful for the MOE system (which is arguably overall the best system in existence), but since I’m starting school shortly I doubt I’ll be finishing that anytime soon.  (NB: Of course the system has problems and some/many of them can be solved with time/effort/money.  The point is that the way some people blindly idealize education overseas is simply not an accurate reflection of reality.)

Secondly, according to Janine, this year’s Miss Singapore Universe pageant (yes, I know, very sad programming) saw the clear front-runner fall from grace after she was asked during the final interview round to name her favourite festival of an ethnicity other than her own, and why she enjoyed celebrating it. 

The poor, stunned girl named Racial Harmony Day.  And said she enjoyed the opportunity to wear different ethinc costumes.   *ouch*  Just about the worst answer possible, no?

(NB: To her credit, what kind of question was that anyway?  How many “ethnic” festivals do we celebrate here??  Most of our public holidays are either religious holidays which have nothing to do with ethnicity like the Buddhist Vesak Day or the Christian Christmas, and the rest are secular, non-cultural events like Labour Day, National Day etc.  Essentially the only ethnic holiday we celebrate is Chinese New Year – but the contestant was Chinese!)

I sold my Tablet PC today, which was quite a harrowing experience (and also means I shall have to wait to get any photos up). 

I shall be a whole different person in the Fall this year – new hair, new desktop computer, new housing, new focus.  I’ll be almost unrecognizeable.

See you there.

    While looking for desk top computer on Monday I came across your blog and post about On The Move… » Blog Archive » See you in the Fall. I could not believe the amount of quality material that exists on this site. The site is extremely eye catching and pulls the reader straight it, the articles are great quality and are very professionally written. I have seen too many of these sites where it looks like they pay an 8 year old to do the writing – Not this one. Your site is easily the best that I have seen in a long while.

    Hi all, – stumbled on your current site by pure luck whilst roaming around the web this morning, and pleased that I did! I like the page structure and different shades, but I should mention that I’m having trouble when it loads. I’m making use of Classilla 9 web browser for mac, and the menu block won’t line up correctly. i’m confident I’ve used the equivalent design on a client’s site, but the menu seems all straight on mine. I imagine the error is with my browser and maybe it’s time to update!

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Many thanks
