First it was the cookies, and then it was on yoga and now the football shirts? It looks like we have highly paid (with our money) civil servants with too much free time at their disposal.

I am not a Muslim and do not wish to indulge with any guidelines that may be issued by the authorities for the Muslims in Malaysia but then again, certain guidelines given does put Malaysia and Malaysians as whole in a strange, strange situation in the eyes of the international community.… [Click to read the rest] “Man U & Islam”

One of my 2 buddies – Alex or Anil is going to go back with a big load of cash as their predicted team in the finals have made it. Sadly my favourite, the Argentinians got kicked out in the quarter-finals and probably did not know what whacked them (they ended up losing 4 to nothing to the Germans).… [Click to read the rest] “Finals: Spain vs Holland”

There are pros and cons to the Government’s latest adventure into Formula 1. We thought we had a taste of Formula 1 with Petronas’ involvement and Alex Yoong in the driver’s seat but in the Malaysia Boleh spirit, we are getting ourselves one notch up in this very expensive sport

Malaysiakini reported:-
