Happy 43rd National Day, Singapore (9th August 1965)

Nothing like a little poke fun at your Hong Kong neighbours to stir up a little nationalistic patriotism ahead of our 43rd National Day.

Kudos to Katie Oh and Taz the Raz for the cheeky lyrics that got me in stitches. I especially love the "we speak Singlish, almost English-lah!"

Next came Wokstarz with a retort in similar fashion as they too produce a response on youtube.

Unfortunately, if I may speak as objectively as possible, it fell flat. Good attempt but a tad short of equalising.

Still, it is good to see friendly banter between the two places, all in good humour.

Happy 43rd National Day, Singapore!

The Singapore one was very the boh-liao and un-called for, in my opinion. What did HK ever do to p*** SG off to that extent ?

How about one suan-ing the Johor State Gahmen ? Now that would be worth the effort !

littlecartnoodles: Yeah, it is boh liao indeed but only if you take it seriously. Granted that it reeks of bigotry, but I thought it was funny in a tongue-in-cheek way.

The so-called attack was uncalled for, even if it were targeted Johor. But I take it as just kachow kachow only lah.
