Sze Mak Chaim Races

'Sze Mak Chaim'  is local lingo (Hokkien) for "eye cyst or sty'. There is this local grandmother's tale or urban legend that if one were to peep or see someone naked, he/she will get a cyst or sty. I suppose the purpose of this urban legend is so that children do not turn into peeping tom.

Now if this grandmother's tale is true and these 2 races were to ever be held in Singapore, there will be plenty of people going around with a cyst in the eye and the eye doctors will have a field day!

But of course the eye popping question will be - will there be anybody here in sg who will dare to take part in it?
