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.”

No doubt about it.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are race-blind, have come out to declare that Tharman Shanmugaratnam is Malay.

This after they believe race is a fluid concept, where a woman with Indian descent can become President in an election reserved for Malay candidates.

One Singaporean, Zuo Zhong Tong, said: “There is no doubt Tharman is Malay.”

“If there is one person who can be president of Singapore, it is Tharman.”

“He will unify the country and Singaporeans will stand tall and proud for once.”

However, other locals said by declaring Tharman as Malay, it will open a can of worms.

Another local, Ma Lai Ren, said: “If Tharman is Malay, then Tan Cheng Bock is also Malay.”

“But no, he is now Tan Cheng Blocked.”

“So he is not Malay.”

At press time, most Singaporeans don’t care about the upcoming presidential election in September 2017 because it is not a real election.
