Singapore K-12 Miscellaneous; HKPolyU Bra studies; Nerdy girl outfits

December 15, 2005 at 10:52 am 3 comments

This entry is a link dump.

K-12 issues:

1. Of scholarships and elite/independent schools vs neighborhood schools. Increase in fees for elite schools. (PDF to original article)

2. (Over)Tuition in Singapore, How to be a better tuition teacher.

3. RJC (again). mrsbudak’s and yanling’s experiences. Bad results in JC probably won’t put you in too much of a disadvantage later in life.

Bachelor of Arts (Honors) in Intimate Apparel (ie Bra studies)

Hong Kong’s Polytechnic University now offers a degree in bra studies (termed euphemistically as ‘Intimate Apparel’). Hat tip: The WSJ.

I tend to gravitate towards girls who wears glasses and college sweatshirts. Beauty and Brains (Nov 30 entry) perhaps? The comments too. As opposed to this one.
Hat tip: Kevin.

Me: Doesn’t look as cool as a sweatshirt leh.

    that’s an interesting social theory.. very interesting..yet i can agree with you on that perspective… girls in university sweatshirts (esp ivy league or top 20 uni ones) and little metal framed postmodern glasses…its interesting.. very interesting…

    i wonder if we get a good number of such people in research laboratories? You tell me…

    Definitely, you just have to search. They exist, even in male dominated colleges like MIT and Caltech.

    Like Tracey Ho for example. (Unfortunately she’s already taken).

    You just have to strike while the iron’s hot. LOL
