Against all odds.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who recognise a miracle the moment they see one, are wiping away their tears of disbelief and blinking their eyes as they are overwhelmed by the supernatural feat unfolding before their eyes.

This after an unemployed Indian woman overcame her own race to become the newest Malay president of Singapore in the 2017 Presidential Selection.

One Singaporean, Bian Mo Shu, said: “This is unbelievable. Never have I thought humans were capable of overcoming their own race to become another in such a short period of time.”

“I always knew that race was a human construct, but it would take a few generations of intermingling for race to coalesce and branch out.”

“For race to change in a matter of weeks is something extraordinary. And to then claim the highest office of the land, feels almost like a man-made fairy tale.”

Other locals said such transformations set the standard very high for future miracles.

Another local, Zhen Qi Ji, said: “This is a story of aspiration that sets the expectation for future progress very high.”

“To surpass this, in the future, one moment you can be a male, the next moment you can suddenly transform to be female.”

“But it goes to show in Singapore anything can happen and dreams do come true as long as other people believe in you.”

“Biology and history are not determinants of who you can be.”

“For example, one moment you can be a Chinese male presidential hopeful who lost by a few thousand votes, the next moment you are but a nobody whitewashed into the past and forgotten.”
