SEA Night 2015 came alive with Dr. Johnson Irving’s witty rendition of Nang Talung, a form of shadow puppetry popular in the Buddhist regions of Southern Thailand. Better known to students as Dr. J, the unorthodox, fun-loving, talented, creative and much loved SE1101E teacher added a contemporary twist. Amidst the traditional Thai music and dancing puppets, he injected jokes, peppering the dialogue with Singlish words and related the performance to the NUS context. It got the audience cracking up that set the tone for the night; it was a joyous and light-hearted night where our beloved lecturers, undergraduates and guests enjoyed the cultural feast.
