This is a markedly non-beauty related post. But I felt compelled to post it regardless.
We did not win our first-ever gold medal at the London 2012 Olympics tonight. But I am so deeply heartened and humbled by the outpouring of love, support, encouragement and enthusiasm thrown behind Lee Chong Wei from Malaysians both at home and abroad.
I hope he realises that he brought us together in two specific ways: one, in that harried, binding, slightly manic, panicked, frenzied way that only sport can and does – and two, in a passionate heart-and-soul, We Are Malaysian way that doesn’t often manifest itself anymore.
Thank you, Lee Chong Wei. You have done more for your country and your countrymen tonight than you realise.
