Shortly after waxing lyrical over being Rafflesian, I came across this advertisement at a bus stop which made me somewhat embarrassed. Sure, they didn’t explicitly mention the school name, but the green-black-white ties and the description (top ‘O’ level students) certainly fit the bill!

I guess in their shoes I might well be tempted to agree to the endorsement – seems like really easy money! Wonder how much they got. On the other hand, it seems like a rather cringe-worthy experience, seeing your picture up in those ads all over the island…

  1. yes! i saw that ad too! there’s a bus stop along the 179 route which has that… and apparently, it’s not just endorsed by the green-black-whites….

  2. haha! I saw the one that was endorsed by the top A level student near PS.. and even though I think it’s highly amusing, sadly, I think it would be rather effective with all the kiasu parents out there..
