Our fortes

My Korean student mum said this to me today.

Mum: "Dong Hoon is going to take up Taekwondo lesson."
Me: "Cool! I'm a black belt!"
Mum: "Yeah, so long, he's a Korean. Every Korean must take up Taekwondo."

It sets me thinking... Korean learn Taekwondo. Indians learn crickets. American learn Football. Chinese learn table tennis. Thais learn Muay Thai & Sepak Takraw. These are the countries forte. What about Singapore?

I think one day, Every Singaporean must learn to Swim, Sail, Shoot, Bowl & Ping Pong. These are currently our fortes isnt it?
