Legendary striker Quah Kim Song, also the steady boyfriend of Workers’ Party Chairman Sylvia Lim, explained to local football newspaper The New Paper how he got the girl.
In an interview published on Sep. 6, Quah told veteran sports editor Godfrey Robert that things really got serious during a January 2013 WP variety concert.
He caught her attention with a rendition of 60’s Singapore band The Quests’ Don’t Play That Song and eventually sang her way to her heart.
They even danced on stage. Yes, his crooning was that good.
The 63-year-old Quah also said that the two lovebirds have the same interest in music and football.
On music, Quah told TNP:
“I also have a guitar at Sylvia’s family home. We enjoy listening to live music and occasionally sing at home over some drinks.”
Lim’s love for football was well documented recently. During a Straits Times interview, the Aljunied candidate wore a top with the flag of traditional football powerhouse Brazil emblazoned across.
At the Bendemeer rally a couple of nights before, she also spoke of Singapore football’s fall from grace and hinted that she might have developed a crush on Quah when she was a young girl and making scrap books of her favourite local football idols.
She also took PDA to a hey-I-want-everyone-to-know-level when she said this at the same rally:
“And I’m so proud that the man who headed in the opening goal (Singapore beat Penang 3-2 in the 1977 Malaysia Cup final) is here with us tonight as my personal driver (Quah Kim Song).”
Aww, you guys.
