Years ago, I received a Meritorious Service Medal.
I was very pleased with myself.
Because Meritorious Service Medals were awarded only to people who have given distinguished and outstanding service to the country.
Then, years later, I became somewhat less pleased, when my boss started giving out these medals to political supporters aka grassroots people who have served them well. But still, I consoled myself that these people are native Singaporeans who have contributed to Singapore in many other ways.
But, this must be the last straw - giving out Meritorious Service Medals to newly bought foreign athletics, who were given last-minute citizenship just a year ago!
Fuck! My Meritorious Service Medal is very cheap indeed!
Not even worth 2 cents!
