For some reason I can never fathom, Singaporeans just seem so obsessed with Mahjong.
“Eh bro, leggo zi muo (self-touch in Chinese),” my friend once called out to me.
“WHAT.” I froze. “EH BRO I’M NOT INTO THAT STUFF. WTH MAN.”
“I’m talking about Mahjong la goondu. Get your bloody mind out of the gutter.”
And then there was the other time when my female friend asked me if I wanted shi san yao (thirteen demons). I remember being taken aback because she looked more like a sarong kind of girl, if you catch my drift.
“I never knew you were into the occult,” I said.
“I’m talking about Mahjong you doofus,” she replied.
Till this day, I still can never get their obsession with the game. Sure, it got featured in a few kickass Chinese movies, but I was never quite won over by their ‘sit and touch tiles’ antics. So really, you can’t fault me for being all skeptical when I see a shirt like this:
Well, what can I say? Damn.
Taiwan Clothing Brand Came Out With Mahjong Shirt Which Can be Bought for $32
If you’ve always considered yourself the ‘self-touching king’ of Mahjong, well, rejoice;
Because I’ve just the apparel for you to convey your obsession with the game.
On 11 May, online shopping store WhoseWear dropped its latest ‘single’ on social media platform Facebook:
An honest to goodness Mahjong-designed shirt.
Loosely translated as the ‘Taiwan No.1 Star Mahjong Flower Shirt’, the shirt design is perceived as “something different” with a strong “Taiwanese taste” by the retailer.
It’s also listed as a must-have weapon when heading out to battle. In this case, one would be wise to presume the “battle” to be a sword fight in the middle of fairy plains.
Now as you might assume from the prowess of the Mahjong-crazy population, the shirt has already become a fan favourite on the net. To date, the post has garnered 11K comments and a whopping 3.7K shares.
Some Netizens expressed hype for the shirt, while others hurried to tag their friends and/or family. One even became a voluntary model for the brand:
Well one thing’s for sure:

A 34YO "old-virgin" S'porean was desperately looking for a boyfriend and surprisingly, she really found one online. But the intentions of the man will make you cry. Prepare tissue paper to watch this video based on real events:
Slowly but surely, Mahjong’s taking over the world.
And as far as the web’s concerned, shirts are leading the way.
And So… What’re You Waiting For?
Each shirt retails for NT$680, which equates to around SGD$32.
Considering the perks and affluence the shirt will (probably) grant you during heated Mahjong games, it’s practically a steal at that price.
And so… what’re you waiting for?
Time waits for no one, and the shirt’s definitely not waiting for you!
It’s unknown, though, if they ship directly to Singapore.
