Bola oh bola...

When we look back at the outcome of the Suzuki Cup, saying our team did badly was an over statement. Definitely Sathia doesnt has the capability to take us anywhere, but I can say, the team was as good as Vietnam, the Champion!

But just like England, same group of players cant qualify for the Euro as well as leading the table for The World Cup qualification, only with a different manager. Therefor the managers performances' must be of significant different. Of course only when both are in the opposite poles.

I thought when Khairy moves in, with truck loads of money, with fiber optic-capacity cables with the business world, he is going for the world. But with a coach like Sathia, with the same management team under feudal lords influence and management is still based on feeling, while others are moving forward, definitely they are moving in a roundabout!

Friday Shopping...

Friday prayer is really an opportunity to market. With 5000 capacity mosque, on a sunny day, you really can make a living there. The Imam shook me with the 160 heads/saf statement. Yea, everybody is getting the facts at their finger tips nowadays. I've gave the marketing idea some thought then, but later, let it be done by the dealers I concluded...

But at todays convention, I saw one interesting salesman waiting at the gate. First he was Chinese, but ultimately it was because he was selling "Rocket", not the firecracker, but the "lidah rasmi DAP". Either he has got tonnes of testosterones (you know, the manly hormone) to sell that idiot newspaper to the muslims or he must have been living in a cave until this morning, right before they handed him the waste bundle.Another possibility is that, he might have lost the "Batsu Game" and have to do whatever the winner (must be Karpal then) says!Whatever it was, he really had the guts...

I wanted to have a chat with him, but I fear they might have a camera hidden somewhere in the bushes nearby, who knows may be somebody was just playing a prank!

Superiority complex...

Looking at what is happening to the US economy nowadays, made me wonder, whether we really should send our students to study economy, business or finance there. Or whether whatever theories that they had proven are really practiceable. With the biggest Ponzi scheme on earth has just been uncanned and the interest rate is almost zero, one more billion dollars bad news, can push them off the cliff, for good! They already raised 850bil for rescuing the banks and no more rate cuts can be expected, looks like they are cornering themselves this time and nobody knows what kind of mess that they are going to uncan next.

They still cant imagine the magnitude of losses from the sub prime derivatives, auto makers failure, housing market collapse, Ponzi failure, oil price trading losses etc. Recovery is not going to be
soon. DJ could rebound but, everybody knows the economy has collapsed, who would be buying the idea? Another bubble? Perhaps in 4 years time, I believe...

Btw, out of all the thing, he only threw his shoes???

Mati Semut Kerana Gula...

What an observation by our old folks, but in these modern days, we also can say, "Mati manusia pun kerana gula". The observation that they had missed then and still miss even now. Believe it or not, the most common death factors like stroke or even high blood pressure can be linked back to sugar intake, needless to say about diabetes.

The lesser ones like fever, allergies, sinuscitis etc. also have sugar traces in them. The problem with sugar is that it will weaken the defence system just like what Aids virus is doing, but at a lesser damage. And we are enjoying it at a controlled price! They should have learned about moral hazard.

In other culture, a tea totally without any sugar is something common. But here, 2 tablespoons for a glass is considered not sweet enough. Forget about "Teh Tarik" with 2 inches thick of condensed milk, my man, that is suicide. Please take it literally, I really mean it!

Friends, cut down sugar intake for a better life! Stop enriching the doctors for no reason.

OBAMA, going back to square one, so fast?

Liberals are growing increasingly nervous – and some just flat-out angry – that President-elect Barack Obama seems to be stiffing them on Cabinet jobs and policy choices.

Obama has reversed pledges to immediately repeal tax cuts for the wealthy and take on Big Oil. He’s hedged his call for a quick drawdown in Iraq. And he’s stocking his White House with anything but stalwarts of the left.
