Here’s a scene I managed to catch on one of the foodie shows produced by our little neighbour down south;
Three ladies -one's pregnant- just had scrumptious desserts and was on their way out when the pregnant lady reminded her friends to NOT assist her descending some flight of steps because get this, in her own words, “I’m not a handicapped, mind you!”
I always hear good things about Singapore. From OKUs perspective in particular, the country’s disabled community are well taken care of and a subject of envy to most of their counterparts in the region.
But that statement above proves no matter how advanced the disabled have progressed, general perception still stigmatises people with physical shortcoming. Its simply like, you’re a cripple on wheelchair, so even if you’re as healthy as an ox from the public eye you’re sick and in constant need of a help.
That’s a familiar story happening in our own backyard by the way.
Its not always we get to take a swipe at our southern neighbours because admittedly, they are superior to us in many ways.
But while I’m at it, let’s kick on the gash and further damage their dented ego.
Their national football team sucks!
Hell YES. Sucks as in, appalling. If there’s any other accurate term to describe it, its MACC.
The 5-0 drubbing by an English club side some weeks back suggested the national team are in dire need of a total revamp. Sure they can argue it was the mighty (under-strength) Liverpool they were up against but if it is news to them, our young Tigers did fairly well against a full-strength English champs!
Yes, it feels good to have a go at them, especially to be backed with facts and not just emotion alone.
Finally after a long while it reinforces my belief they are not any better than us in some ways.
Now I wonder what will happen if the two national sides take it to the field. I definitely have some good feelings about it.
