"Every Man's Heart Has a Priscilla Wong"

Recently, a netizen wrote a post entitled "Every Man's Heart Has a Priscilla Wong" (translated below):

I think every man's heart has a Priscilla Wong
A little tomboyish, a little erratic, you and her are good friends
Will eat dinner together, eat late-night snacks together, go on vacations together
But will never spark love with

You and her seem to have some inexplicable resonance
Other people will always think that you two are a couple
But in your heart, you know it is impossible
When friends ask,
You will often say "There are some good feelings, but I only treat her as a friend"

But ask your heart
You do like her a little bit
But you also know
She does not like you at all

You two enjoy this type of relationship
The closeness of boyfriend/girlfriend, but without the responsibilities of boyfriend/girlfriend

Until one day Priscilla Wong gets together with Edwin Siu
Then you realize
"Damn, I actually like that bitch Priscilla Wong"

But unfortunately, you have missed the hundredth opportunity to be with Priscilla Wong
You can only continue to be pretend to be good friends in front of everyone
Sometimes you will banter with her and she will banter with you
But you both know that really, something has changed

A rare work opportunity comes up
You can hold Priscilla Wong's hand once again

A few days later
You look at the newspaper
And see the pictures
You smile
You cry

That friend that you secret love, but know you will never have the opportunity to be with. That friend that you are willing to do anything for, but will never ask for anything in return. That friend that you hope will never leave your side, so you can be their guardian angel.

I've already had one Priscilla Wong in my heart. I hope there will not be another.


  1. Not a fan of either celebrity but I must admit that poem is amazing. And relatable to a lot of other people. I admire their friendship and I really wonder if they really felt that way about one another at some point...

    Thanks for posting the translation!
