Wong Xiao Yuan and Kenneth Chandran tell us the way they see the debate over sex norms swirling around them: simply background noise.
On Saturday, July 20, all the fans going into the Singapore Sports Hub to look at the soccer match between Manchester United and Inter Milan had been most likely excited.
In comparison, 23-year-old Wong Xiao Yuan had been big money of nerves as she wandered in to the arena.
“I looked to his buddy and stated ‘Oh my god, just what did I have myself into?” she told Mothership.
The second 50-odd mins saw Wong, a nursing assistant by career, anxiously watching the clock, counting down the minutes and moments to half-time.
Finding themselves on the “kiss cam”
As soon as the break within the match finally arrived, Wong’s now-fiancй Kenneth Joel Chandran, 30, pointed out that a bit was being acted by her weird.
Cameras during the arena had been wandering the crowd that is 52,000-strong as well as an emcee was encouraging couples to be involved in the halftime entertainment — a “kiss cam” portion.
