Something pretty disturbing occurred yesterday at Peninsula Plaza.
You see, I was hunting high and low for this particular national team t-shirt (not jersey, as illustrated and worn by Faizal Hamid) for ages.
So I happened to drop by into this sporting goods shop inside "Peninsula", as I was told that's the outlet most likely to have it.
"We are NOT as DIE-HARD as you," said the shop assistant in a half-jested manner.
"But we would have PLENTY of stock, if (Singapore) lost." he added (which I interpreted as "C'mon, dun waste your bloody time, man!").
Sad reality but that's the fact that I still can't find the T-shirt I'm looking despite it's that of the national team.
Yeah, I did went to the various NIKE outlets in Singapore but to no avail.
Why could such a thing happened? Does this means this team being :
- three-time Asean champions in recent times
- now among the top 20 teams of this continent
mean nothing to anyone of us?
Season Greetings to all ...
