Whoah! I’m so excited! Singaporeans with a penchant for the culinary arts now have the chance to get a degree from the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America, and at a fraction of the price it costs in the US.
The news article was published today back home and I was pleasantly surprised but at the same time, shocked by the exorbitant price one has to pay for the tuition fees at the NY campus for the degree courses. Well, back home, our government subsidises and in the end, we (citizens) really pay only a small portion (yes, for all our undergraduate and graduate courses). The hubs and I were thankful to them on this as we know they really focus a great deal on education and spent A LOT in this area. =)
So maybe in the very near future, they would have culinary or baking boot camp too? Oh! I would be among the first to sign up!
