It's technically my last day as a Professor (i quit it! yay!), but in a way, I was kind of hoping I would at least make it until I was denied tenure to share this article :)

Upon leaving Singapore, a reflection my proudest moment as a professor-

A large delegation of visiting professors and students stopped by to visit from some Vietnamese universities. The head of their schools came up to me and said, "at first my students were confused when I told them that the man in the animal costume was in fact the professor running the event, but then I explained to them that, this is how they do things here in Singapore. They are much more free to be creative and explore."

Like the mighty queequeg, @well.read.panda discards her old coffin /cabinet. Hopefully it will float on somewhere else and buoy someone else up somehow :)
