About this Event

Your ole Uncle Chris left school long ago. So, I will not be able to do an in-depth study of the current day syllabus - whether it be Science, Technology, Mathematics, or the Humanities. But (and it is a big BUT), we will still be able to do an in-depth study of our educational system, starting from old to new.

There are a few good reasons why some travel agencies are doing regular tours (for foreigners) to our universities – much to the chagrin of NUS (National University of Singapore) and NTU (Nanyang Technological University). The reasons are easy to understand – the tourists intrude into their school compound transport system (which is free, and meant for the students) and also their lunch by competing with them at the canteens or elsewhere.

Unlike the travel agencies, we won’t be using their bus service and neither will we be competing with them for “lunch”. Our walking tour will focus on the school's history and what did we do to make our universities so popular in Asia, or perhaps even across the Pacific. All of us know it is never easy to secure a seat at NUS. It is also not an easy time at NUS. It is hard work – I know – I saw my 2 daughters through NUS in the early 2000s.

We are choosing to do NUS because NUS has a friendlier tone to “handle” the hordes of tourists as opposed to NTU’s “anti-tourists” approach. Meet me at Clementi MRT, 9am, 12th May 2024 (SUNDAY). This tour will end at the Lee Kong Chian Museum, perhaps about 11 or 11.30am. I suggest you also visit the Lee Kong Chian Museum (after the tour) and take a long hard look at the very expensive dinosaur skeletons (I think it cost us $12Mil)! Or was it $8Mil? We’ll talk about the dinosaurs when we meet on the 12th May 2024, 9am. Don’t miss this!!

Note:

  • We do the worldwide practice of tipping at the end of the tour.
  • We also reserve the right to accept or reject habitual late cancellations and no-shows.
  • Call or message Uncle Chris at +65 91814298 for corporate, private, or student bookings.

Do not sign up for this tour if you are not sure of your schedule. Please understand this method of booking platform can only perform its best with your full sincerity. Sign up only when you are sure of your schedule. We look forward to your graciousness and generosity!
