“Then Nini asked me why I cried on the Olympic podium. My answer? I couldn’t give my country the happiness they want.”

The then continued saying that he had received an offer to coach overseas, but he declined, though it was a huge offer, “But I stayed, Malaysia is much better.

“This is the country you were born in. You went to school, you made memories with your friends and family. Your favorite food is here, you had the best laughs here. 

“Malaysians love to complain. We like to find faults. But don’t you guys think it’s because the more you love, the more you hate? The more you care, the more you will complain. Anyone born in Malaysia, deep inside will know that Malaysia is the real home.”

He then ended his long, sweet post with: “I love Malaysia. Happy Malaysia Day.”

But just as we thought he was done with the post, he surprised all of us with a huge announcement, “And because we love our country, we are adding another Malaysian citizen! We ask that everyone please pray for a smooth pregnancy.”

How adorable!

He also added that he asked his two sons whether they wanted the baby to be a boy or a girl, and one of his sons, Kingston, said he wanted a little baby sister. When asked why, he explained because there’s only 2 controllers on the Nintendo Switch.

“If I get another brother, there would be less chances for me to play.”

We understand that feeling, all too well, Kingston.

But oh my, another baby! How exciting. Congratulations Lee Chong Wei and Wong Mei Choo, we’re so happy for you guys!
