转眼间, another Teachers’ Day is upon The Temple.
And once more, all
non-hated ‘chers and educators across the land will, in all likelihood, get to enjoy a feast of gifts from their adoring students.
Along with a feast of beautiful words that will melt the sternest of teachers’ hearts and, in some ways, make those little nondescript sacrifices (like waking up in the car on a public holiday morning) well worth it.
As always, however, Miss Loi & The Order of The Temple would like to stress that the best Teachers’ Day gift of all shall always be to do your very, very best to grab the best-est results you deserve in your final exams.
But having said that, Miss Loi has just received the most flattering Teachers’ Day gift ever.
As the old saying “imitation is the highest form of flattery” goes, Miss Loi is extremely proud to acknowledge, on this Teachers’ Day eve, a gift in recognition of the coming of age of The Temple.
“nestled itself somewhere amongst the lush fertile plains of Novena in Central Singapore, a pebble’s throw from the MRT, in a secret location known only to those of the purest hearts“, and “offered the ways of the enlightened to the determined masses and help the willing attain Mathematical Nirvana”
… for a couple of years now (read it here), it has apparently inspired another Temple (in classic PSLE cloze passage fill-in-the-blanks manner) to
“nestle somewhere amongst the bustling crowd of Somerset in Downtown Singapore, a stone’s throw from Somerset MRT, in a secret location known only to those of the well-informed … to show the lost but willing ones the path to Chemistry enlightenment“.
Thus on an emotional Teachers’ Day eve, The Temple has found its long-lost twin just mere kilometres away amongst the bustling crowd of Somerset. Near to Miss Loi’s regular foot reflexology shop at Somerset 313 some more! Oh don’t you feel happy for us on such a joyous occasion?!
