'You've sold out, haven't you?'

Hey you, you look prettier now.

And people just can't stop talking about you, can they?

Yeah, it's you I'm talking about, Miss billion-dollar National Stadium.

You're all fancy these days, with all the bells and whistles, but I remember the plain you, and they are wonderful memories.

We won championships on the platform you provided, I became a Lion on your lawn.

Hey, you made many legendary Lions who inspired the young me, and roused the nation.

And not just Lions, C. Kunalan, James Wong, Glory Barnabas, all names that shine from our sporting past shone on your lap.

Let's not forget all the National Days we celebrated on your hallowed ground - a sacred battlefield for everyone that wore our flag.

You're different now. And I'm not convinced by how you're behaving now.

You don't seem to know your priorities anymore, and I don't see how new stars will be born in you again.

You've sold out, haven't you? You're more about money, moving in a direction I don't understand.

Honestly, I miss the old you.
