Eventhough his presence is no more can be felt with us, but his talent and deeds to Malaysian football remains. 
If we can dedicate an arena at National Squash Centre in Bukit Jalil to our Squash Queen, there is no harm to dedicate any sports venue to all our great athletes as our thank and appreciation to their dedication and sacrifice for the sake of the country. Let their great names be remembered and inspire present and future generation of how these sportsmen represent their sports.   
AL FATIHAH TO ALLAHYARHAM TAN SRI GHANI MINHAT.  

Malaysian Open Tenis KL 2012

Dapat juga tonton Malaysian Open 2012 di Stadium Putra.KL. Tu pun pasal dapat Complimentary ticket dari Astro kerana satu peraduan mudah. Bolehlah dua tiket.

Perlawanan yang tengok ni ialah antara V Pospisil dari Canada melawan J. Monaco dari Argentina. Entahlah aku pun tak kenal siapa pemain-pemain tenis ni. Kalau bukan dapat comolimentary ticket menang tak datanglah

Ni International punya competition. Tapi penonton tidak ramai. Tak sampai pun 500 orang pada masa ni. Mungkin juga hari ni org lebih minat nak dengar Budget 2013. Or malam mungkin ramai sebab lepas habis kerja. Esok cuti.

Missed Malaysia Tourism Hunt 2012

Well, I missed another good opportunity to collect new experiences when I had to turn down the urgent invitation from Tourism Malaysia to join the Malaysian Tourism Treasure Hunt 2012. 

I received a message from Rayyan Harries to send him my number. Then a call from someone (found out later to be Natasya) from Tourism Malaysia asking whether I can make it to the event and I was suppose to answer it now and then. Since, I had already committed to two prior  assignments during the weekend and since the invitation needs me to be away for the next 6 days, I had to turn down.  

If I were to know about the event earlier, I could have plan my weekend schedule. 

This morning after reading the tweet from Rayyan, I searched the internet for more news about the #MTH2012 and came across an interesting blog post by Rebecca Saw. who was one of the participants in the event.  It was well presented and walking through her blog makes me say to myself, ……”I missed a very good opportunity to be in an interesting event”. What participants will experience during this 6N 5D events is HERE.

I hope in future events organised by Tourism Malaysia, I can get an earlier notification because I want to be among the citizen that can help sell tourism in Malaysia through my experiences and blogposts.

Semangat Harimau Muda Airasia

We have seen sports “brand” on Airasia planes from time to time and I the most prominent if all is when they dedicated a Man U motif on of their Airbus. Then from time to time, other sports related advertisements were painted on their planes and fly in the air. 
Latest I think is one plane dedicated to our own football team, the Harimau Muda. Photo here
