Ping Pong Pride and Prejudice!

Steady! Bronze medal! I cheered loudly when the team snatched the medal away from the kimchi team. It came nail-biting close at times that Kim-Park-Lee (oh, not their surnames, forgive my ethnic stereotyping) would roll up the Feng-Li-Wang trio in pickled spicy cabbage and bury them underground. However the Singapore team, imported they may be, but pink IC all the same to me, showed them prata spins and hot laksa volleys. And beat them.

What matters is that the little red dot got a bronze this time, ok not a silver like the previous Olympics, but good enough in my book. There would be those who celebrate Singapore wins like me and see that we grab what we can in sports. There would be those who bitch like the snapping dogs they are that it is a kelong medal, the players are not true Singaporeans, China won not Singapore, rather lose with pride than win with shame, or some worse mean things to utter. Whatever. They are entitled to their bitter myopic opinions and apple-orange comparisons to the other giant in Temasek's Olympics history, Tan Howe Liang, who was also born in China, a foreign talent BTW. The irony. Oh that time, almost every Chinese in Singapore was a foreign talent anyway, except for the Peranakan. Imagine how the babas and nyonyas felt then about these foreign Chinese coming to their sunny island set in the sea LOL

These foreign sports talent like the ping pong trio took up citizenship and settled down here like our forefathers as they saw opportunities here, not Canada, not America. WTF wrong with that? Smack Feng, Li and Wang's butts with their paddles only if they ungratefully run off and migrate to USA after their Olympic wins and open a Chinese takeaway in San Francisco Chinatown, the biggest in the world! I can't change the mean cynics' minds, while nobody can change my optimism that the win is a great gift for Singapore's national day, the 47th one. Team Singapore ping pong, FTW, all pride, no prejudice.


  1. Come on, Singapore had brought in many foreigners who are now our rulers. Some of them are beautiful wonderful women liked MP Lee Bee Wah, MP Lily Neo and some other male MPs.

    Are they or their offsprings bound or will be patriotic to remain in Sin forever?

  2. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you need to write more about this issue, it may not be a taboo matter but generally folks don't speak about such topics. To the next! All the best!!sbobet casino

  3. You're so cool! I don't believe I've read through something like this before. So good to discover someone with original thoughts on this subject matter. Really.. thanks for starting this up. This site is one thing that's needed on the web, someone with some originality! Sbobet
