|Dato' Lee Chong Wei, Malaysia are very proud of you.|
It was heart wrenching to see tears in Lee Chong Wei's eyes. I felt so helpless when you are out there in the battlefield doing all you can trying to win the gold for Malaysia, and all I can do is just to shout and cheer all my heart out to you.
You have put up a really great fight. You even showed us the true patriotism that a man can offer for his country. In fact, you have united Malaysians as a true 1Malaysia today. You have achieve greater things beyond just-only-a-silver-medal. You have made us truly a proud nation for having someone like you representing all of us.
Despite the result, I am still very proud of you and thank you sincerely for giving all your best out there today. Thank you for your heart of gold. Thank you for being a true champion with your love and passion for your country. All the best for your future.
Again, thank you for such a wonderful birthday gift. You are indeed my hero, the Malaysian's hero.
