I will be traveling to Sydney & Melbourne but i doubt blogging will be a priority...
I will be back in Wellington, New Zealand on 16 Jan & i suspect my next blog post will be around that date...
pray for my safety!
I read the blog of Irry, a good friend of mine, and was deeply moved by her emotions and how it compelled her to do something...
I decided to write a poem to remember such a pure act of emotion untainted by desire...
emotions at its purest
a wonderful work of art
power enough to strengthen
powered deep as eternity
energy in motion
moving through your veins
the trigger is pulled
as you see, hear, feel, taste or anticipate
the unstoppable force is unstoppable
and yet, is deniable
struggle with choice
struggle with lack of vision
hold my hand as we dive into life
for many a tornado awaits
On the 7th of November 2006, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the Malaysian immediate past prime minister, was in Wellington, New Zealand...
And guess what?
I Served him lunch!
During my school experience in Clyde Quay School, i had the privilage of observing a peotry writing lesson.
The exercise: Finish a peom starting with "as the moon wakes".
I decided to write one too...
tell me wad u think!
As the moon wakes, all is silhouette
The lady is red appears in my head
I cant see her face but know does my heart
her beauty and grace is beyond disgrace
Oh do I long for beauty and grace
Oh how I desire to adore her face
Yet glimpses i get as short as a breath
of beauty and grace beyond disgrace
Her shiny hair flows like the oceans
Her glowing skin excites like a flame
You beckon for me yet meet we cannot
For all is silhouette, the girl of my dreams...
4.30pm, Monday, 6th of November, was the time of great release...
The red sea of Trimester 2 was parted and the slaves were taken from slavery & captivity in the Egypt of chasing assignment deadlines & stupying for exams to freedom in the promise land of the well deserved holidays!
Before my release, I had...
Malaysia played Indonesia 3pm today at Rotterdam St Stadium, Wellington, New Zealand.
The Malaysian team in their cool bright orange jersy looked a little nervous playing away on Indonesian home ground. Malaysia trashed Indonesia last year on Malaysian home ground, the Boyd Wilson Stadium, but with a new line-up on both sides predicting the result is quite difficult.
In the first half, both teams had similar chances on goal & posession of the ball... and quite fairly there were no goals. The Malaysian team made a lot of mistakes as their unfamiliarity with the pitch stood out. Passess were too short, touches unclean & players hesitating... The Indonesians were naturally familiar with the grounds & were very active running around making tackles & intercepting passess. The first half ended with both teams needing rest from a half hour long contest.
The second half was a very different matter. The Indonesians seem to have lost their steam. Their players were not playing as well as they did in the first half. Their reflexes were not as sharp, their players not running as much as they should & they seemed to lack the intensity they had in the first half. On the other side, the Malaysians played an even better game now that they had a better feel of the grounds. They were literally running all over the Indonesians taking balls from their defenders, running up & down the wings, passing more effectively & making even more shots on goal. It was the second half that gave the Malaysians their 2 goals.
I played attacking right wing back for the whole duration of the game & did extrodinarily. I ran up many times, made a few crosses & assisted the right wingers on several occassions. I did very well defencively as well by gunning down their wingers & preventing passes to and from the wing. An awesome game for this rising star in Malaysian football!
In conclusion, it was a good contest between 2 good natured teams. The game ended 2-0 & with handshakes as well as smiles exchanged. Good win for the Malaysians & lots of stamina training for the Indonesians.
Catch your favourite orange side playing in a 5 on 5 football tournament at 5.30pm every
Thursday at St Nairns Park!
Nesa & I are playing in the 8 man Malaysian team!
