Wow, the Prime Minister got through his speech in just under an hour and he didn't announce any major changes to the educational system. He must be having a pretty good day. I'm glad I didn't go, though. It sounded to me --- and I confess I was only paying partial attention to the TV switched on in the next room --- like he was using the occasion as an excuse to trot out all teaching-related stories from his lifetime, and I'm sorry, but a man who looks deathly serious when he described Singapore as a "funky city" (as he did in the National Day Rally message a couple of weeks ago) cannot possibly be entertaining when he's reliving his schooldays.
