Malaysia Champion Again! ^_^

JAKARTA: Malaysia defended its gold medal in the SEA Games football after defeating Indonesia 4-3 through penalty shoot outs in the finals held at Gelora Bung Karno stadium on Monday night. Both teams ended the full 90 minutes game tied at 1-1 and had to go into extra time.

Malaysia wins gold

Malaysia wins gold, Najib tweets congratulations

Malaysia are champions of the Sea Games again!   Baddrol Bakhtiar's winning penalty in a 4-3 shoot-out win ensured Malaysia retained the football gold medal following a tense final against Indonesia at Gelora Bung Karno yesterday.

 After full-time and extra-time ended 1-1, it came down to the lottery of the penalty kicks as goalkeeper Khairul Fahmi Che Mat's save from Ferdinand Sinaga set Baddrol up for a grand-stand finish.

  The win revived memories of 1979 when Mokhtar Dahari scored the goal which sank Indonesia 1-0 in the Sea Games final in Jakarta, which also happened to be Malaysia's only other back-to-back successes.

An ecstatic coach Ong Kim Swee also   finally revealed his secret pep talk: "They don't respect you, they don't respect our flag, they   don't respect our King and they don't respect your parents. If you allow this to happen, then you are cowards. You must teach them what being Malaysian is all about.

 "We beat them not once but twice in front of their fanatical crowds. We showed them how it is done."

 He added: "It was a tough job in selecting players as we have faced so many injuries but no matter who I picked to  play they gave it their all.

"As a coach  I did not have to tell the players what to do. They already knew the situation so when it came to the penalties, they showed good character and attitude."

  But it did not start well for the Malaysian players, perhaps shell-shocked after the bus carrying them into the stadium was attacked tentatively.

  Indonesia, bidding to end a 20-year gold medal drought in football, started at a furious pace as Fahmi was put to work immediately.

As early as the third minute, Fahmi went low to parry Titus Bonai's pile-driver before coming off his line to deny Andik Vermansyah two minutes later.

  But there was little Fahmi could do with Indonesia's opener in the sixth minute when Gunawan Dwi Cahyo rose high at the back post to nod in a corner.

  To Malaysia's credit they did not fold as Asraruddin Putra Omar had a point-blank header blocked by goalkeeper Kurnia Meiga in the 13th minute.

  Indonesia had a goal disallowed for offside four minutes later before Irfan Fazail wasted an opportunity when his shot was deflected after Kurnia had dropped a harmless-looking cross.

  Malaysia were not to be denied though as Baddrol whipped a cross in which Asraruddin stooped low to head into goal, the ball rolling across the line, in the 35th minute.

  Eight minutes after half-time, Malaysia should have scored on the break but Ahmad Fakri Sarrani went for goal from a tight angle when a teammate was better placed and had his shot saved.  

  Two minutes later Irfan scuffed his attempt from inside the box before Fakri wasted another chance in the 65th minute when he shot wildly after being played in by Baddrol.

  Up at the other end Oktovianus Maniani turned two Malaysian defenders before firing into the side-netting before Baddrol had Kurnia at full-stretch to turn his free-kick away in the 85th minute.

  That forced extra-time when Indonesia again had a goal ruled out for offside as the two tired teams struggled to create chances, leading to penalties.

   Gunawan hit Indonesia's second penalty against the post before Fakri fluffed his. Then came Fahmi's brilliant save before Baddrol ensured Malaysia won the Sea Games football gold for a sixth time.

Dont Laugh!

A husband wakes up at home with a huge hangover.
He forces himself to open his eyes and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table.
He sits down and sees his clothing in front of him, all cleaned and pressed. He looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotless and clean. The rest of the house is in equally good shape.
He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table.
"Honey, breakfast is on the table. I left early to go grocery shopping. Love You!"
He is totally shocked by the loving note. He goes to the kitchen and there is a hot breakfast and morning newspaper ready for him.
His son is eating at the table.
He asks, "Son, what happened last night?"
His son says, "Well, you came home around 3 a.m. drunk and delirious. You broke some crockery, puked in the hall and gave yourself a black eye when you stumbled into the door".
Confused, the man asks, "So why is everything in order and so clean? Why is there breakfast on the table waiting for me? I should expect to have a big quarrel with your mom!"
His son replies, "Oh, that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom and when she tried to take your clothes and shoes off, you said, ‘Lady Leave Me Alone! I'm Married!’"
- Moral of the story -
Self-induced hangover - $ 400.00
Broken crockery - $ 800.00
Breakfast - $ 10.00
Saying the right thing while drunk - "Priceless"

A group of pranksters have handed out more than 1.2 million fake New York Times newspapers, mainly in New York City and Los Angeles, with a front page story declaring "Iraq War Ends".

The elaborate 14-page edition, dated July 4, 2009, is said to be the work of a group called the Yes Men, whose previous hoaxes include masquerading as World Trade Organisation officials announcing they were disbanding the body.

"It is fake and we are looking into it," said New York Times spokeswoman Catherine Mathis.

A statement sent from a website set up for the fake edition, www.nytimes-se.com, said creating the newspaper took six months and that it was printed at six different presses and then given to thousands of volunteers to distribute.

"We've got to make sure Obama and all the other Democrats do what we elected them to do," Bertha Suttner, identified as one of the newspaper's writers, said in the statement.

"After eight, or maybe 28 years of hell, we need to start imagining heaven."

President-elect Barack Obama takes office on January 20 after eight years of the Bush administration and 28 years after the inauguration of Ronald Reagan.

The newspaper includes a front page story saying that "Ex-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice reassured soldiers that the Bush administration had known well before the invasion that Saddam Hussein lacked weapons of mass destruction."

The Bush administration has said it believed at the time of the March 2003 invasion that Iraq had chemical and biological weapons and was trying to develop a nuclear bomb.

Other headlines declared that the "Maximum Wage Law Succeeds," "Nationalised Oil to Fund Climate Change Efforts" and "Nation Sets Its Sights On Building Sane Economy."

There is also a full page fake advertisement on page three from the world's largest publicly traded oil company Exxon Mobil saying the company applauded the end of the Iraq war and that peace is "an idea the world can profit from".

In a pamphlet handed out to volunteers when they picked up copies of the newspaper to distribute there was a "Frequently Asked Questions" section. In response to "who made this?" it said: "Who knows? Rumors are it's a group of writers from several mainstream dailies - including The New York Times."

The Yes Men, who were the subject of a book and documentary in 2004, have pulled off pranks including posing as Exxon Mobil and National Petroleum Council representatives to deliver a speech at a Canadian oil conference.

They have also posed as federal housing officials at a New Orleans event with the city's mayor and the governor of Louisiana and promised to throw open closed public housing to thousands of poor former city residents.

But they are not the first to fake The New York Times.

According to the paper's "City Room" blog, the best-known spoof was during the 1978 newspaper strike and the prank included journalist Carl Bernstein, author Christopher Cerf, humorist Tony Hendra and Paris Review editor George Plimpton.

Are your shoes killing you?

Dr George Lebeau has tips for you....

 The process I want you to follow
1. Bring a small ruler or long pencil with you to the shoe store.

2. Once you have the shoes side-by-side, place the pencil across the top of the shoes and see if there is a downward tilt on one side. If it does, that means one shoe is lower than the other and not a good pair.

3. Place the pencil at a right angle to the counter along the back of the shoe. With the pencil straight, look to see if the shoe is tilted to one side or the other. If there is a tilt the shoe is crooked and not good.

4. Look at the shoes from the top and see if they are the same length.
5. If one is longer than the other, these are two different shoes!

Two more things before I finish:
First, the price of the shoes has nothing to do with the quality of the construction. I was at a high end shoe store and saw running shoes that were badly tilted and crooked. The price was RM1,500. I have also found very well made running shoes at the discount outlet stores for RM50.

Women will always ask me if there are problems with dress shoes or high-heels.

 I am happy to tell you that in well over 90 per cent of cases there are no problems at all with this type of shoe because there is actually more quality control associated with dress shoes.

Negative impact of slaping kids..

I like to write regarding the effect of slapping children's faces either our children orstudents. We may think slapping is not serious action and not a big issue, but our own ever slapped at one time.

But know that the act could slap a serious injury, especially to children. From the medical point, we know the child has still to grow in organs undergoing the process of growth. The organ is also fragile, easily injured, and potential problems long-term negative effects. Organs of the face such as eyes, ears, mouth, tongue, neck and spinal cord, the brain is a potentially vital organs were injured when part of the face and head are made points of the shot or blow. If we read about the face and head injuries, especially to children who are abused, we found that most injuries were caused by strike action or punched in the face.

The person may wear a ring or slap bracelets and effects caused by this hand of course more serious. When doing a blow especially in uncontrolled emotional state, we can not control and to determine accurately the affected facial blow.

This causes the slap of the face can sometimes be affected by the neck, eyes and ears. A strong blow to the head can injure the neck bones and spinal cord as a sudden shift and quickly head.

Rapid displacement of the head can also shake the brain and this can break blood vessels, tearing the lining of the brain and brain bleeding. At the same time if his head hit the wall hard thing due to the momentum of the movement of the head when slapped, injuries can be serious and may be life threatening.

If the blow right on the earpiece and the ear hole closed, then the strong pressure in the cavity will be channeled into the ear and reach the eardrum, the eardrum may rupture and this will cause permanent hearing loss if it is serious and not treated quickly.

In fact, many physical effects such as bruising due to blow, burst lips, teeth broken and others. What is important is not the act of slapping to be taken lightly especially if it is used as a means 
to punish.

In addition to physical effects experienced by children or students who slapped, the psychological impact is one of the consequences of not less serious.

Bash said to be a method that can be a more degrading, especially if it is done in front of audiences. I call on all parties to refrain from using the interface as a means of punishing blow.

In conclusion, when we judge, especially on their children or students, seized with a fit and wise methods with the aim of educating and loving so that it can be a useful teaching and aims to make them a better person in the future.

No woman, no cry

My friend wiped her eyes and decided to give up her dream of running for the position of Thailand's prime minister.
"I cry too easily," she said, almost in tears. "I won't survive it. I cry at the movies, I cry at concerts. I cry when it's flooded and when it's dry. I cry when I suffer, and I cry when others suffer. I even cry when nobody suffers but I think they suffer. I can't be PM, I cry too much, I won't pass the test."
I stopped her from posting that on Facebook. Not because I didn't believe her capable of governing, but because crying is not our flavour of the month. Somebody has been deconstructing The Crying Game too much.
Lachrymose leaders are lame leaders, the opposition believes, and maudlin management is an obvious malady of the female-led administration. Pump water, not tears, they demand of the PM, their fangs bare, hands rubbing salt on the wound.
Suddenly November has become a season of crocodiles. Finding themselves in the democratic sovereign of swampy Bangkok, the reptiles terrorise villagers, eat chickens and upstage monitor lizards as the choice monster of our watery woes. And now - the detractors joyfully add - real crocs are backed up by croc tears, captured on TV and photographs on more than one fateful occasion.
Our PM should heed Sylvia Plath: "I didn't want my picture taken because I was going to cry..." Too bad, and too late, for Yingluck Shinawatra. The nitpickers will always be nitpickers, and while the PM deserves criticism on too many counts to count with our two hands, the business of attacking her every move, every gesture, every teardrop, going after every little quirk and slip to vindicate the loss of the July election, increasingly speaks of wanton hostility and political divides that benefit no one.
"I might have cried but it is not weakness," said Ms Yingluck. "It's a surge of sympathy when seeing others' suffering."
It's an overwhelming of emotion, sobs and chokes, especially (and here I interpret) because the people who are suffering the most are those who voted for her. It's a cry over aquatic graveyards. But it is not, she insisted, a mark of despair. And we've come to the point in history where we believe her or sneer at her - we herald the tears as real or dismiss them as crocodile - based solely on which box we ticked in the last election. Ideology over humanity? We're all guilty, and that's worth crying over.
Like in Thai soaps, the men are cads but it's the women who swoop down on each other with claws outstretched. Siriwan Pradsajaksatru, deputy leader of the Democrat Party, didn't let the prime ministerial tears go untaunted. "Ms Yingluck's repeated failures and lies have led to a wide debate on whether this is all a northern woman is capable of doing," said the MP. "People are asking if all northern women are like her. When faced with something hard, do we just cry and use our feminine guile in the wrong way?"
There's an accusation of melodrama, craftiness, crybaby, over-pampering, and of the PM sabotaging the image not just of northern Thai girls but of "women all over the world". In only three months, the MP thundered, Ms Yingluck "has destroyed the image that women have spent their entire lives protecting".
Speak of melodrama! Female leaders are historically expected to lead but not to be female, or to be less female in the pre-existing condition obviously set by males. Margaret Thatcher didn't cry in public, but we don't need another Mrs Thatcher. Obama did cry in public, during the campaign when he reminisced about his white grandmother. Suthep Thaugsuban also cried in public, at the rally before the last election. It's true that Ms Yingluck should learn to control her tear-spring - and don't make a geyser out of it, especially at a time when people have already lost so much faith in her. But the female Democrat MPs are practising petty politics that's not ladylike in the least. What's nasty is that it's not even feminist politics but a distortion of it. The attack on the PM's tears and how they damaged the dignity of northern women is surprising when a graver offence was perpetrated directly against northern women by Akeyuth Anchanbutr, who alluded that females from that region are better off in the sex trade. I wonder why the MPs - of all sexes and parties - didn't react to that repulsive remark which exemplifies how ugly our political rift has become.
If the PM's tears signify how "women of the entire world" are so weak, then the Democrat MP's words do nothing but confirm the unfair stereotype of women as a vindictive sex with a weird set of logic. Attack the PM's inefficiency, but not her tears. And if you have nothing else to do, it's time to go after the real crocodiles, not the imaginary ones.
