It blows you away.

The name is irrelevant.
The person is male.

Football Rocks My Brain

I don't give a shit if Man United are coming or not.

First and foremost, though I am not a huge fan the Red Devils, I wouldn't mind them coming to our shores. Seriously.

What irks me is how the situation was dealt with by FAM and the country. I think these two really showed how unprofessional they were, which probably best explains the situation our football team is in.

I don't blame the AFC. Or FIFA. The AFC had a contract with us. We signed it. If you didn't know what the content was, you shouldn't have signed it. Either that or your lawyer really sucks. AFC is part of FIFA. Man United is one of the G-14. No prizes for guessing why FIFA sided with the AFC. Simple logic you morons.

And we're feeling Man United is playing hard to get by declining to re-schedule. Reality, people. Man United is the best supported football team in the world. Wherever they go, people go. You think they have time on their super-busy schedules? Ko ingat ni My Team ke??

And why would Man United want to jeorpadise their relationship with the AFC? Asia is their biggest pot of gold and keeping AFC happy will go a long way at the cash register. So what if they lose a few million in Malaysia? Rather than a billion from the whole continent? They aren't stupid, them Glazers.

So get up from feeling sorry that Man United won't be coming and face the facts. We're the host for the Asian Cup. Be proud that at least we're in the tournament as host nation, coz if we had to earn our place there then I'd be walking my grandchildren before that happens. The Asian Cup is the premier football event in Asia. I don't blame AFC if once in a while we have some time away from European football and look at our own backyard. It happens once in 4 years godamnit, so give 'em a break.

What would it look like to the AFC if everyone is talking about some dumb meaning-less friendly with Man United rather than the Asian Cup final? Have some pride people. Yes, it's Visit Malaysia year. If you feel by hosting the Asian Cup won't be bringing in the tourists, then we shouldn't have offered to host it in the first place. It's all about planning, people. This whole Man United saga just shows how good our people are at it. At least have some dignity and honour your word to the AFC. It's not about sanctions against FAM or whatever. It just shows how we are and how low we can go just for the sake of having extravagant events. Have some balls, FAM.
And I don't mean footballs.

Left of the middle

One of the things about working for the Big G is that the whole country knows how much increment you're getting wayyyy before you do. And your bonus too.
So much for the usual, "Increment ko okay ke tahun ni?"

In all honesty, I'm thankful for what I'm getting. This kind of work doesn't reward you much monetarily, but for me the rewards come in different forms and shapes (and I'm not talking about the size of the envelope!)

I must thank my errr...employers? And the tax-payers of course.
Your wish is my command.

The E-word must be around the corner, huh?

Classic song of the week: Bone Thugs N Harmony's Crossroads. Those pesky kids on Gang Starz should do a cover on this one. AF? Dream on!

When I was smaller, I used to love to follow Papa to the bank. This is for the simple reason that the bank clerk would offer us kids lollipops when they see us tagging along. They were sugar-less lollies though, not really the ones to die for but they were sweets nonetheless. I remembered the joy of getting the lollipops everytime we visited the bank at the end of the month.
Which brings me to the present day, where in my line of work you meet people from all walks of life every single day. From the Datins to the Mat Rempit, the big tauke to the Ah So, they come in all shapes and sizes. Some come to complain, some to seek advice, some even come just so somebody could listen to their problems. And kids tend to tag along on these visits as well.
So that got me buying a whole packet of lollipops (at the newly-opened Tesco no less) for the kiddies. Just for old times' sake. Oh, I give out to adults too. Just ask me for one :)
Maybe some kid will look forward to coming here as well.
