    Default How would you feel?

    Just saw the China flag being raised at Athens, the National Anthem being played as a Chinese Olympic runner got gold for 10000m...

    How would you feel if you saw the Singapore flag being raised at an Olympic games?

    Even though we got 4th for table tennis and badminton, its not all that bad right? Besides it just shows how competitive the world of sports really is and how well the s'poreans have done in athens. Congrats to them really...
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    Code:
    import ch.talents.PingPong;
    import us.talents.Runner;
    
    public void static main(String[] args) {
    
      try {
        Runner runner1 = new Runner();
        runner1.import();
      } catch (TooExpensiveToImportException e) {
        PingPong pingPonger1 = new PingPonger();
        pingPonger1.import();
     }

    I suppose that some of us have forgotten that we are also imported in one way or the other.

    Our parents (at least for my case), grandparents and such came to Singapore in search of greener pastures thus it does not make any of these not-born-locally athletes any different from us.

    Let's move on.

    Yeah. Move on, stop harping on imported talents. Some people are just plain jealous they're more talented than them.

    Perhaps the olympic commitee should consider adding a category - "Equipment Measurebating".. Someone might win!

    Yeah, we should all move on, stop harping on "Equipment measurbating".

    Perhaps we should consider adding a "Grow up & get a life" category, an ipaq user might win!

    Well, if the Singapore flag were to be raised, I will cry. Ha! For that matter, I cried during every prize presentation I caught on TV, esp the one when the Britian 4-men Rowing Team won. To add on, I feel that everyone can be a winner. A lot depends on the society. Is the society supportive enough? It is fairly important. Support lah!
