Muhyiddin's colour blind quote

pix from here

"When Datuk Lee Chong Wei won the All England, no one asked him whether he was a Chinese or a Malay... he is a national champion and we are all proud of him. We want this spirit to be imbibed in the hearts of our children."
-Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin-
Quote from here.

I wish to embellish what Tan Sri Muhyiddin said by adding that no one would ask Datuk Misbun Sidek whether he was a Malay, Chinese, Indian, Kadazan, Dayak or any suku kaum as the coach.

By the way, Syabas Lee Chong Wei, Syabas Misbun Sidek, Syabas Malaysia!

But "We want this spirit to be IMBIBED in the hearts...??!!"

Sound a bit iffy/dodgy.

We are all of 1 race, the Human Race

Yup, I second your 'syabas' to them both. I am glad that Lee finally did it this 7th time around.

And as DPP so correctly points out: what's with the 'imbibed into the hearts' bit? The word is sooooooo wrongly used! Couldn't he just have used 'absorbed' or something even simpler?

After all, he is trying to make a point for the common man to understand, isn't he?!

Memang dodgy. And that's what happens when you don't mean what you say - you leave everyone going, 'Huh...?'

There's nothing wrong with the children. They already 'imbibed' long ago, on their own and in their stride.

Not sure about the others though.

So if he hasn't realized all that, what's the conclusion next?

Very good development in Malaysia.

I always admire Misbun for his talent.
Last time, when he was a national coach he failed to do much because there is too much of intererence on his work.When they leave him alone accusing him to be too arragon (which is not true), there you see an
All England Cup for Malaysia.
As far as I see it, he never border that Dato Lee is not a Malay and Dato Lee never border that he is not a Chinese.
Together , an All England Cup for Malaysia.
Please keep up.
