Emotive prose wins it for Liverpool fan
Her words include: "When you're in love, your emotions are intertwined with your object of affection."
No, Shermaine Wong, 28, was not referring to her loved one.
That statement is part of her declaration of love for English Premier League leaders Liverpool, which won her a signed team jersey and $100 worth of shopping vouchers.
When The New Paper spoke to her, she squealed with delight the moment she heard about the shirt.
"What a way to start the weekend," she exclaimed.
TNP asked readers to say why they love Liverpool and received a huge response (see contest details below).
The replies ranged from the short and sweet - "because they're not Man Utd" - to poems of sacrifice and glory.
But Wong hit all the right notes about what it is to follow the Reds.
She was introduced to football 10 years ago by her father and brother, who are Arsenal and Manchester United fans respectively.
She decided to support another team to maintain a healthy rivalry in her family.
But why Liverpool?
"I thought they were good - and passionate - like Michael Owen. Even now, there is Steven Gerrard."
Her Liverpool moment is their incredible Champions League final in 2005 when Liverpool came back from 3-0 down at half-time to beat AC Milan on penalties.
Second prize winner, NUS student Eugene Tan, won by turning his answer into an entertaining acronym that spelt LIVERPOOL FC ROCKS YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE.
The 25-year-old said he has been a Liverpool fan since primary school.
When he watched his first match on television, the Reds lost to Chelsea 2-0. But he is confident Liverpool will beat the Blues come April 27.
