Moving along, there is also another hot topic currently being debated by a certain quarter of domestic bloggers which I have also taken the I-dunwanna-blog-about-it approach. But as I was having lunch today, I over-heard the topic being talked about by the next table, comprising of 1 old uncle and 4 old aunties. They were very candid; with a lot of hand movements… they were talking about the sad state of our Malaysian football! Imagine… 4 old aunties!!
There seems to be a big revamp in FAM with a view to bring our football to its glory days. I remember the national team was totally disbanded when they put up a dismal display in one of the SEA Games. Did that move make any difference to their performance? Definitely… that time, they lost to Cambodia (I think), now… they got thrashed by China and Uzbekistan. It’s an improvement mind you.
I just want to say that I disagree with more money being pumped blindly into this sport. Someone said we need better infrastructure, more playing fields. Please note that kids in Argentina, Brazil and not to mention the poor African nations play on near-desert-like ground and some have to kick coconuts. Pumping more money WILL NOT improve the game. Last but not least (on this notion)… I refuse to believe that our Malaysian team can be so Malay-sianed.
The charming TingTitLei, whom I have the privilege to meet in the recent blogger booze tagged me on “what I will do if I have $1,000,000”. I know I said I never do tag but this is quite a common question we ask each other. My answer… assuming that it’s US$ that you’re talking about, I will not be buying anything. The very first thing I will do is to bloody resign from my job and get my ass out of the modern slavery world.
Finally, thank you Clare for awarding me my very first “Awesome Guy Blogger” award… thank you Confessing7girl and Rinnah for awarding me my first and second “Power of schmooze” award respectively and thank you Evelynholic for giving me my 5th “thinking blogger” award. Hell yeah… self gratification here… it’s Monday and I need some cheer!
