Pandelela Rinong and Cheong Jun Hoong also won silver.
Azizulhasni Awang won bronze.
Not so bad, okay.
It's already the best Olympic outing for the country, if I'm not mistaken.
Anyway, Malaysia can still hope for gold from Goh V.Shem and Tan Wee Kiong.
Then, there's Datuk Lee Chong Wei.
It's good to be able to celebrate their achievements.
By the way, I don't think most of us really care about our athletes' race or religion.
I also don't think most of us really care whether they speak perfect Bahasa Malaysia or being "proper Malaysians yang mempunyai ciri-ciri rakyat Malaysia sejati"....whatever the hell that is.
I know that I don't care about that.
Those guys are out there battling it out and giving it all for the country.
For me that makes them good enough Malaysians.
In fact, for me they are better Malaysians than some of us who can speak perfect Bahasa Malaysia and oh so patriotic lah kununnya.
I'm saying all these because of these comments from my last post,
There are a few more but I think those are sufficient as samples.
Seriously guys, what's wrong with you all?
So what if some of us, our athletes included, can't speak proper BM.
For me, that doesn't make them any less patriotic than myself or any of you.
My mother can't speak perfect BM even after all these years married to my father, but I know for a fact that she really loves this country.
When Malaysia was savaged in the Chinese web forums after MH370 went missing, she went in there and battled it out in defense of this country.
And she even defended the BN government despite herself (from what i know) being a supporter of DAP.
She told me that she did so because when foreigners and even some Malaysians attacked our government in a time of crisis, it's the same as attacking our country itself.
Myself and most of you all can't do that and probably won't even be bothered.
My mother was educated in a Chinese school and a university in Taiwan.
So, she can do what she did.
And she did it for her love of this country.
Nobody paid her to do it, okay.
By the way, do you think all Englishmen can speak perfect English?
Or Chinesemen, can they all speak perfect Mandarin or Cantonese, or Hokkien or whatever?
Does that makes them lesser Englishmen or Chinese?
I don't think so.
If we want to talk about being like the Indonesians for example, do we really want our country to be like Indonesia?
Or the Philippines?
I don't think so.
Why can't we just appreciate the way we are and just get along with minimum prejudices?
We are unique and we are like that because this country is designed to be so.
Read the constitution and you will realise that what we are now is how it was intended by the founding fathers when they set-up this country called Malaysia.
Let's not destroy it because we think we are more Malaysian than the next person because we can speak BM better, or we think our racial background is more Malaysian, or our religion is more Malaysian.
Guys, let's pray that our Olympic athletes (and all of us for that matter) will never end up like in this
That's just the trailer.
