Ping Pong Orgasm - Does money buy everything?

"The Man Behind the Medal" said in ST, 'I also identified Zhang Yining, But the Chinese said 'no, no, no, this one you can't take. She is our future world champion'. She was only 12 and they already knew.'
Choo Wee Khiang, on spotting the women's world No 1 during one of his first scouting trips to China"

Woah .... reminds me of slave trading!

I remember there used to be Ping Pong Diplomacy between USA and China in early 70's, I think, where real Americans played with real Chinese.

Today it's Ping Pong Orgasm in Singapore! Look out for more song and dance in msm so that our attention can be taken away from the real (no medal, no bronze, no silver, no gold) trying-to-make-ends-meet state that we are in.

Even PM's National Day Rally Speech telecast (meant to be this evening) has to be postponed to tomorrow instead. Wonder why the real speech is still on tonight. Maybe those folks attending the life speech tonight are matured enough to know that it's no big deal whether the China/Singaporean Team or the China/Chinese Team gets gold or silver.

After reading ST's "The Man Behind the Medal", I'm amazed that money and shopping can be so much fun! Shopping for things is one thing, shopping for people? Shopping for citizens? And the Beatles tell me "Money can't buy me love"!

I know EPL soccer managers buy footballers for their clubs. Orgasmic as it may be, but country buying sports talents for momentary national pride and making such a show about it is a little hard to swallow.

Well, if we can buy sex, we can buy medals too!

I have nothing against the China/Singaporean ping pong medalists and I wish them well with the huge cash prizes they will receive from Singapore. And hope that they, unlike some other imported athletes who 'ran road', will stay and prove that our money is well spent.

I'm still very proud though. The real true blue Singaporean Olympic Silver Medalist is still Uncle Tan Howe Liang!

I hope that the orgasmic ping pong journey will stop soon after being mentioned by the PM in his rally speech (which I bet on) . After tomorrow, let's get over it and concentrate on the job at hand, that is, Help For The Poor; MM. It's so nice to know that it's now been acknowledged that there are poor in Singapore. Oh, some believe that poverty has been eradicated and there are no beggars in Singapore.

while many Singaporeans are ok about this, I am dead against this. The idea that our forefathers were from China does not hold water for me. In this case millions and millions of tax payer's money is pumped into this program. and success in getting a silver makes me more worried. How much more of taxpayers money is going to be spent, picking up the scraps of China / Indonesia and Malaysian Talents.

In the meantime, our schools are stopping school children from joining swim team, football team because their chances of winning medals for the schools are low, so the schools will only pay attention to their niche areas and stop the games and fun of the children.

And while millions are spent on these China Rejects, our old folks (who contributed much of their lives to singapore and are true blue Singaporeans, born in China) are picking up scrap papers, tin cans to eke out a living.
Please spend more of the budget on helping the poor, giving these old folks a stipend, instead of all these bullshit.
Thank you.

IIRC isn't this Choo Wee Kiang an ex-PAP MP convicted of fraud?

Due to the lack of financial support, Mr Tan Howe Liang had to pay out of his own pocket to finance his training and expenses. He won the 1960 Olympic medal out of his love for the sport.

Compared to the present day, where foreign athletes are imported here and promised a reward of S$1 million for winning a gold medal at the Olympics, Mr Tan did not receive any monetary rewards for his effort in 1960.

That is the world of difference.

Thank you all for your response.

"Choo Wee Kiang an ex-PAP MP convicted of fraud?"

Did anyone notice in one of the recent news items, the controlled press tried to play up the fact that Mr Tan Howe Liang was born in China?

Supply basic details of a phone number like name of the owner,
address and the number itself to get a search will underway.
Different parents will have different ideas on what age is appropriate for a

Before long you will notice that your hands remain soft and silky
all the time. s not the kind of thing where you just watch the video and
feel better instantly. Quite a few nail biters will also continue
biting and chewing their fingernails despite extreme damage and bleeding from the nail bed.
