is annabel chong a national hero?
i happen to spot a little picture of annabel chong in a little corner of today's straits time with the heading, 'is annable chong a national hero,' a topic or discussion in the sunday times tomorrow. now, is that the kind of mindset of a liberal and mature society or one that has gone down the drain to obscenity and bad taste? third world mentality will go for the world's biggest ketupat or the longest popiah to be entered in the book of guinness world records. afterall they have nothing else to prove. but i think that kind of mentality is at least a few level higher than those who think it is deserving to even consider annabel chong a worthy candidate to be a national hero of this little republic. if that be so, we shall rename our country as the repuprick of singapore. that would be more appropriate and very well deserving. and kudos to the sunday times and the editor or columnist for setting aside precious space in the paper for something that we can be so proud of. i rather called myself a malaysian and cheer for the world's biggest ketupat.
