Singapore lost but can still sing Chinese anthem

Singapore lost, it was a good match considering that it sort of lasted quite long. Comparatively to Hong Kong’s match, it is already very good. Singapore’s table tennis team got a silver this time. This is also the first medal awarded to Singapore since our independence.

It’s a good year after all. This could well increase Olympics awareness in Singapore. It’s a little unfortunate that the table tennis team did not comprise of – ahem – too many Singapore natives. At least I can see Li Jiawei singing the Chinese national anthem too.

I guess that ends our Beijing Olympics quest for medals. I look forward to four years later.

[Note: If I could, I would have bury this post as inaccurate. It spreads around some friends and a couple of us picked it up and thought it was true.]
