The Secret Location of Miss Loi’s Temple

(34)
Tuition given in the topic of Miss Loi's Temple aka Joss Sticks Tuition Centre from the tuition centre desk of Miss Loi at 5:11 pm (Singapore time)

Many of you will know that the exact location of Miss Loi’s Temple is shrouded in secrecy, known only to students who have signed up for her tuition classes.

Miss Loi is not trying to be all mystical or funny. She hopes everyone can understand that as more people get to know about this blog, and being a delicate person with a timid heart, she would like to preempt the possibility of some un-student-like stalker (apart from their parents) appearing unannounced at her doorstep.

Unfortunately, despite being given the exact coordinates, some students are destined to get lost among the wilderness of Novena, and in danger of being waylaid and devoured by wild beasts in the form of other tuition agencies in the area (just joking here – no offence to any tuition centers in Novena!).

To that end, she has put up a series of signage for the purpose of guiding her flock of lost sheeps to the correct destination.

The First Sign

The First Sign To Miss Loi's Temple

You will see this sign soon after you exit from Novena MRT Station and turn round a corner. At this point you should be able to feel a gentle breeze of serenity upon your face as, indeed, salvation is near.

And yes, there really are 38 steps you need to climb.

The Second Sign

The Second Sign To Miss Loi's Temple

Halfway through your arduous 38-step climb, this second sign reassures you that you are indeed on the right path to enlightenment (and not on a wretched road leading to the wrong tuition center *joking again*).

The Final Sign

The Final Sign Just Outside Miss Loi's Temple

When you see this, you are standing just beyond the sacred Temple Grounds. The pull on your Mathematical consciousness by Miss Loi’s presence emanating from within, can be rather overwhelming at this spot.

Enter and be saved.

The Temple Gates

The Mythical Temple Gates

Finally. Looming before you are the mighty Temple Gates, where a mere glance at them is enough to reduce straight-As students to tears. The aura surrounding you here can be blinding, as you suddenly experience a positive surge of Mathematical prowess.

Pause, look in awe and pose for a few touristy photos while you can.

Enter & Be Saved

Now step inside, lots of joss sticks are waiting to be burned!

頑張って!!!

    I am very impressed with your way of welcoming your students and parents to your "classroom"! I really like the "Just a few more steps to ENLIGHTENMENT". Haha

    Wow, this is brilliant... Don't think that many tuition centres are willing to spend some effort to put up such signs. =P

    And they really look quite pretty, not those done in MS Word type.

    Thanks hendri. Just hope that this will not attract any unwanted attention from the owners of the many, many 'done in MS Word types' in the vicinity!

    Glad you liked them BR.

    Must also thank the Bras Basah printer for the good print job!

    Hope that they at least look better than a typical 'MS Word in A4 paper' job 😛

    Some have feedback that they thought Miss Loi is training young Jedis in the Temple *lol*

    Maple: No choice. Spent long talktimes on the phone directing lost students wandering in the vicinity.

    So the signs have to be eye-catching enough, else there will be more and more wandering around in the vicinity looking 'stoned'!

    Not a pretty sight.

    Clarion, Miss Loi has a nagging suspicion that your relief teacher might be this guy.

    Let her know if your 'cher has the prerequisite stockpile of platinum + gold + diamond credit cards 🙂

    But Greek mythology? This blog has only Greek symbols aplenty!

    I am a desperately seeking a knowleagable maths teacher. Have tried out numerous " part-timers" but none works. All they care is to complete 8 lesson and get their salary. My daughter's maths result is deterioting fast.
    Ms Loi, can you recommend one. I am staying in the northern part of Singapore

    Jean, Miss Loi empathises with your anxiety and the experience that you went through. *sigh*

    Please call 9380 5290 asap to discuss your daughter's case.

    I have problems with my math and
    thinking of finding a tutor to consult.

    My math teacher don't really teach well.
    Almost the whole class doesn't know
    what she is teaching.

    N even teaches the
    wrong thing where my classmates
    from the other ban asked her.

    I passed by this website n saw a lot of
    great comments on your teaching!

    Therefore i am keen to know more about
    fees n schedules for the tution you provided.

    Hope to hear from you soon. thanks!

    Ahhh ... finally a Jap expert is here for an external audit.

    Actually がんばって! is meant to be Ganbatte! according to an online translator. Does that make any sense to you? If it doesn't, what should it have been?

    And what's with that リオィー先生??? Mr Loi???

    Its 'Teacher' Miss Loi, you're a teacher! =D
    Its okay to use all Hiragana anyway~ but it might have meant another thing if you didn't put in Kanji. >.<

    Anyway, I think I found your temple a little too late =(
    Half of the year is gone already. Looks like we weren't really destined to meet in person as student and teacher! ^___^

    So sorry to hear of your wild hunt for the elusive Temple 😛

    No, The Temple (and its signs) is still sitting tightly in Novena but if you've read the latest blog entries you'd realise that Miss Loi is currently overseas (in fact she's in transit at Qatar International Airport as she types this).

    Kindly email/SMS Miss Loi your contact number and she'll call you asap after she has returned to Singapore on 7 Jan (umm ... that's later today!)
