Come on Malaysia!! Wake up!! For how long that we can see our country will be in football map together with Brazil, Argentina, Italy or Germany (I just named a few of tough country)? Playing in World Cup? I can say that is IMPOSSIBLE thing to do! Sorry all Malaysian fellow but I just telling you how I feel of being Malaysian supporter.. :(

KUALA LUMPUR - Norizan Bakar has shaken off the heavy criticism levelled at his Malaysia team since their 5-1 loss to China in their AFC Asian Cup 2007 Group C opener, saying that it is all part and parcel of his job as Malaysian national coach.

Speaking in a pre-match press conference ahead of his side’s clash against Uzbekistan at Bukit Jalil National Stadium on Saturday, Norizan said that he was unphased by the negative comments and lack of support received from the Football Association of Malaysia in the wake of Tuesday night’s debacle.

“This is the country, so it’s normal when you do badly in a game that you get all the critics saying not so nice things,” said the Malaysia coach.

“We have to admit that it was not a very good result that we had in our first game against China. We now have our second match against Uzbekistan and we have to rise to the occasion and do something about it.

“The only thing I can ask of the players is to give their best for the second game. We do not have a choice; we must play to our level best.”

While accepting much of the criticism, Norizan was keen to emphasize the need to look ahead to upcoming games.

“I think we have to forget about the China game and concentrate on Uzbekistan,” he said.

“I’m sure everybody is not happy with how we performed. We have talked about it and as players and human beings, we don’t want to be humiliated.

“So I’ve told them that as a team, we have to raise ourselves and give a positive approach in our next game.”

Norizan said that he and his coaching staff have worked out a game plan to match the Uzbeks, who lost their opener 2-1 to Iran. However, he was giving few clues as to what that plan actually involved.

“We have watched our game and Uzbekistan’s game, and we have done an analysis and prepared a game plan. We just want to do something and we hope that it will work out tomorrow.

“At this level of the game, we cannot play too defensive because we cannot stop the ball from coming in.

“And we cannot be too attack-oriented also because if you are too exposed at the back, the other team can capitalise on your mistakes.

“So we have to be really careful in our approach to tomorrow’s game.”

The Malaysia coach hinted that there might be changes to his starting line-up, but despite the presence of tall central defender K.Nanthakumar at the main table during the press conference, he gave few clues as to who might be dropped or recalled.

“The team that will play against Uzbekistan will only be finalised at the last hour.

“There are many assumptions and many things that we can put forward tomorrow. Nantha is one of the players in the squad and I suppose he is like one of the other players because he wants to show that we will try to go into the game tomorrow with a positive approach.”

Nanthakumar echoed his coach’s comments and emphasised his desire to help Malaysia to bounce back from their opening loss.

“If I play, I give my best. I want to win and do something against Uzbekistan,” said the Perak player.

“I don’t want to come here to lose three games. At least if we can get three points or a draw against Iran, that is something.

“We will give our best and try to improve. Anything can happen in football so we will just try our best.”

Another sweet words from our national fellows.. :(

Making Money On The Net Pt. 2

1 more article that focusing on how to make money on the net.. Enjoy guys...;)

Maybe you've heard people say that you can get rich on the Internet. But, if you are serious about making money on the Internet, remember, it's not a get rich overnight business. Internet success takes time, effort and knowledge. There's no easy "get rich quick" method, so you need to spend the time for building income stream from your web site.

You can find many kinds of web sites that have the aim, directly or indirectly, to make money. Apart from the online retailers who are using their sites to directly make money, you can find many web sites with various moneymaking features.

Here's an excellent page describing realistic ways of making money on the Internet from your personal web site - Work From Home. No "get rich quick" schemes. Just proven, reliable ways to to build an online business or use a web site to expand your offline one.

The basis for building serious income is the high traffic. If your site only gets a few hundred visitors per month, as most of personal web sites, you'll unlikely make more than pocket change.

Here are some ways of making money on the Internet from your personal web site...

They were one of the first ways of making money from hobby web sites, however they are not so popular now since most surfers don't even look at them. In fact, the click-through rate (the percentage of visitors who actually click on a banner) has steadily dropped, from around 5% 4 years ago to less than 0.5% now.

In the Traffic-Building volume of Make Your Site SELL! 2002 (the free ebook describing all possible ways of making money on the Internet), banners are called #1 "Time and Money Wasters." Save yourself months of poorly spent time. Read this essential manual first.

If you have highly relevant, cleverly designed banners, you can beat the odds. However, you need relatively high traffic to actually make more than pocket change. In fact, most banner advertising companies prefer to only pay for actual sales (even click throughs are no longer attractive, since many people click through because they are paid to, and not because they intend to buy anything).

Under this category are things such as free lotto tickets and various games where you can win prizes. Often, these are implemented as pop-ups and are much more annoying than banners.

Affiliate programs
They pay you a percentage of the sales you generate for them, or for each visitor you send. This is one of the best ways of making money on the Internet. You don't have to spend time and energy creating your own product. And some of them pay 50% commission. See Affiliate programs for more information on building income from affiliate programs.

Google AdSense
This is one of the easiest ways of making money on the Internet for small and medium sites by displaying relevant, text-based ads from Google AdWords (Google's own advertising program) and receiving a share of the pay-per-click payment. For more information, go directly to their site...

Other tools
There are many tools that can help you make some pretty big commissions without your visitors even realizing that you're building income from their visits.

For example, several search engines will pay you a few cents per search made from your web site. If a few hundred people use your search box, you'll earn a few dollars a day - not bad for a few minutes of cut & paste a small line of code within the HTML of your web page.

Selling a Product or Service
This is an obvious way of making money on the Internet. To succeed in it, you have to succeed at three points...

1. Develop a great product that is of interest to others on the Web.
2. Write a professional web site designed to sell.
3. Attract targeted customers to the site.

Ken Evoy's Make Your Knowledge Sell! is a very useful ebook for those who want to get a piece of the e-commerce pie but don't know how to come up with a product. MYKS! shows you that your knowledge, life experience, specialized interest or hobby can be packaged into an information product ("infoproduct") that other people want and are surfing to find.

An infoproduct offers the best entry point into the world of making money on the Internet for most people. Absolutely everything is in MYKS!... from brainstorming to automating your order-processing. You need absolutely nothing else to succeed at selling what's in your brain.

For additional information on how to start selling online, see Selling on the Internet and Free Merchant Accounts. You'll also find there a list of 3rd party credit card processing companies - processing fees, extra costs and other details.

Making Money On The Net Pt. 1

I found this interesting article on a website. Hey guys.. Read this.. You might want to know about making money on the net, right? Enjoy...!


Believe it or not, it can be done--as scores of ``Netrepreneurs'' have discovered

For something that was supposed to be the next gold rush, the Internet sure seems disappointing. True, companies such as Netscape Communications Corp. that sell the technology for setting up shop on the Internet's World Wide Web are doing a land-office business--and making immense paper fortunes in a bull market dazzled by the Web. But it's damned hard to find any of the prospectors who use those tools actually hitting pay dirt--by selling merchandise and information or running advertisements on the Internet.

The horror stories of money-losing Web ventures are everywhere--including high-profile fumbles by some of the biggest names in media and communications. Don Logan, CEO of Time Inc., last year complained publicly that Pathfinder, Time Warner's glitzy Web site, gives ``new definition to the term black hole.'' Since then, Pathfinder has gotten new management, a facelift, and a plan to begin charging for some content. Now Time Warner executives say the site will generate profits ahead of schedule. Meanwhile, AT&T, as part of an overhaul of its Web strategy, ended up killing an ambitious ``Health Site'' before even finishing testing. MCI Communications Corp.'s Internet shopping mall failed to lure tenants and is shuttered.

No wonder the question being asked--ever more nervously--by bankers, entrepreneurs, investors, and corporate executives is: Can you make money on the Net?

Surprise. The answer is yes. Not a lot of money yet, mind you. And the number of losers still exceeds the number of moneymakers by more than 2 to 1. But it turns out that while the corporate giants have been thrashing around noisily in cyberspace, showing how not to make money on the Net, scores of entrepreneurs have been quietly tinkering--creating new business models for retailing, marketing, publishing, and advertising that work for them and could perhaps point the way to an Internet payoff. This first wave of profitable companies is proving that electronic commerce can work, that you can sell ads on the Web, and that--at least sometimes--people will pay for online information. ``Companies that are offering a unique business proposition on the Web can and will be successful,'' says analyst Betty Lyter of Montgomery Securities.

Just ask Jason Olim. With twin brother Matthew, he founded Net startup CDnow Inc. from the basement of their parents' Ambler (Pa.) home. Jason Olim, a jazz fan frustrated by skimpy selections in music shops, came up with the idea of a cyberstore that could offer every jazz album made in the U.S. and 20,000 imports. The beauty of it: no brick-and-mortar costs and no inventory. Shoppers place their orders with CDnow (, which, in turn, contacts distributors. Most disks are delivered to the customer's door in 24 hours. Add in advertising revenues, and CDnow expects to hit $6 million in sales in 1996, triple last year's revenue, with 18% operating margins. Says Jason Olim: ``We're dancing as fast as we can.''

``THIS THING IS ON FIRE.'' In Corona Del Mar, Peter Ellis was nearly wiped out by the deep California recession of the early 1990s. He lost $15 million when he was forced to sell off or close 16 auto dealerships. But last January, he was back in business--on the Net. Auto-By-Tel, his new company, makes money by selling sales leads to auto dealers across the country. For a monthly subscription fee of $250 to $1,500, dealers get the names of Web surfers who have checked in at and decided to buy--at the listed ``no-haggle'' price. Some 1,400 dealers use the system, and at the current growth rate, Ellis says he'll turn a profit on $6.5 million in revenues this year. ``This thing is on fire,'' he says.

In Silicon Valley, veteran entrepreneur Jerry Kaplan thinks he has the right formula this time. His previous startup, a maker of handwriting-recognition software called Go, went south in early 1994. In July, he launched ONSALE, an online computer auction. For a growing audience of computer-savvy consumers, bidding in the twice-weekly sale has become a ritual--part bargain hunting, part entertainment. By August, each auction was bringing in an average $445,000, putting the company on an annual run rate of $45 million. What's more, ONSALE (, with 10% to 20% gross profit margins, has been profitable since January. Says Kaplan: ``I'm becoming the P.T. Barnum of cyberspace.''

Olim, Ellis, and Kaplan are not the only ``Netrepreneurs'' who are making it on the Web. In a June survey of 1,100 Web-based businesses conducted by market researcher ActivMedia, 31% claimed to be profitable, with 28% more saying that they will be in the next 12 to 24 months. Those surveyed accounted for $130 million in Web revenues in June alone. ``This reflects the average company on the Net rather than the large companies you read about,'' says ActivMedia senior research analyst Harry Wolhandler.

And the ranks of profitable companies could soon swell dramatically as Web pioneers gain more experience. It's only about two years since companies began doing business on the Net at all, and the vast majority of the estimated 250,000 commercial Web sites now operating have less than a year's experience. ``Step back,'' says Lyter of Montgomery Securities. ``Most companies don't reach profitability in the first six months or even the first year.''

So, what is the magic formula that the successful pioneers have discovered? In BUSINESS WEEK interviews with 35 operators of profitable Web sites and an additional 15 that expect to be in the black in the next 3 to 12 months, a surprising picture emerges. These companies haven't invented unique types of businesses--they're doing what everyone else on the Net is: selling products, selling advertising, and selling information.

But with a difference. For one, instead of plowing huge sums into their sites, most are operating on tiny budgets. That has forced them to focus on how to reach and serve their customers, rather than, say, pumping money into fancy graphics that look good in management meetings but wind up slowing down Web sites and turning off consumers. ``We've had a focus on controlling costs, which others haven't had to do,'' says Jason Olim. ``It's simply the discipline of having to be profitable to survive.''

Even more important, the successful Web players are not simply replicating existing businesses in the new online medium but are taking full advantage of the unique, interactive nature of the Net. For example, the hottest stores on the Web don't just provide convenience and low prices--although those are essential ingredients, too. Across the board, successful Web merchants have created virtual ``communities.'' At their sites, like-minded cybernauts congregate, swap information, buy something, and come back week after week. A flair for such community-building helped make bookseller Inc. a standout on the Web (box). Says founder Jeff Bezos: ``This is the secret weapon of an electronic merchant.''

Above all, the successful Web trailblazers share the ability to adapt--to scrap what's not working and improvise a new business plan on the fly. It is increasingly common, in fact, for Web businesses to wind up with hybrid strategies: Online stores end up taking ads; publishers go into retail sales and are looking for ways to get subscription revenue. InfoSeek, which is now the No.1 advertising venue on the Web, for example, set out to sell hard-to-find information across the Net (page 114).

GolfWeb is another example of how hybrid strategies are evolving. The site was started in 1994 by Ed Pattermann, former manager of Internet commerce at Sun Microsystems Inc. GolfWeb went after advertising first because, he says, ``it was the easiest model to get to.'' It began posting everything anyone ever wanted to know about golf--35,000 Web pages, including reports on 19,000 courses at GolfWeb has attracted advertisers such as Bank of America, Lexus, AT&T, Buick, and Callaway Golf. They pay $30 to $40 per 1,000 ``impressions,'' counted as each time an ad is viewed. Pattermann is counting on ads to deliver about $400,000 in revenue this year.

Not satisfied with that, he's pushing hard into retailing and offering special services and content that consumers can buy a la carte or through monthly subscriptions. Pattermann's virtual ProShop, which opened two months ago, is already contributing 20% of revenues, a projected $100,000 a year. With ``premier memberships,'' which will be added early in 1997, Pattermann will throw in services such as handicapping and golf games. He expects service and subscription fees to generate some 40% of the $4 million he's anticipating next year. Ads will be 35% and retail 25%. ``We really think we have the right formula,'' he says.

CHILI LOVERS. For now, at least, the most promising strategies seem to revolve around retailing. Net merchants will sell some $518 million worth of goods this year, and $6.6 billion by the year 2000, says Forrester Research. The best-sellers? Music CDs, airline tickets, books, and other known commodities that consumers don't need to sample before buying.

Not surprisingly, computers and related gear are huge sellers in cyberspace. This year, $140 million worth of computer products will be sold over the Net, according to Forrester. Dell Computer Corp., for example, just opened its Web store to consumers two months ago and expects it to sell $20 million to $30 million worth of PCs a quarter.

Going up against giant manufacturers in a commodity business like PCs can be a recipe for Web oblivion--which is why it's more common to find online stores in specialty areas. They profit by connecting enthusiasts with new or hard-to-find items: an out-of-print book or a rare Italian cheese (page 118).

There's Hot Hot Hot, for example. The tiny Pasadena (Calif.) shop was known locally for stocking all sorts of exotic hot sauces, but on the Web it has become a popular destination for chili lovers everywhere--all because one day Monica Lopez locked herself out. While Lopez waited for her husband to bring the keys, Thomas A. Soulanille, president of a Web-design company, arrived. The two started talking, and soon Hot Hot Hot was on the Web. Today, it offers some 150 different sauces to Web surfers, from Satan's Revenge to Scorned Woman. The site ( draws 1,500 visitors daily, and Lopez says the online outlet is profitable--and generates 25% of sales. ``That many people wouldn't even fit in our shop,'' she notes.

It takes more than a specialty to keep the cybershoppers coming, though. It also takes cyber-merchandising. Online merchants are making sure their shops are cozy virtual hangouts for consumers, but they're finding that contests, giveaways, and ``sweb-stakes'' also keep the clientele coming back., for example, has a quarterly drawing in which the winner gets a free book a week for a year. Smart Games Inc., a Marblehead (Mass.) startup, offers over $50,000 in cash prizes to customers who score well on its Smart Games Challenge CD-ROM game. Its web site,, attracts some 500 people a day who download a demo version of the game--helping to generate $1 million in sales of the CD.

Increasingly, however, online stores are counting on advertising, too. Traditionally, advertisers have looked for big audiences through newspapers, magazines, or television. On the Web, they're looking beyond such ``content'' providers to other places where they know they'll find consumers. That's why, for example, CDnow has begun running ads from Microsoft Corp. and Lands' End Inc., both of which saw how much traffic the record store was generating. CDnow says ads are coming in at the rate of $100,000 a year.

TV-SIZE AUDIENCES. At this point, however, Web advertising doesn't amount to much. In 1995, according to market researcher Jupiter Communications, ad revenues on the Internet totaled $42.9 million--a nit compared with the $32.4 billion spent on TV spots. And even the companies that are getting the most ad revenue (table) aren't necessarily moneymakers. InfoSeek, the popular ``search engine'' site, is not breaking even and is not expected to in 1997.

The ad picture could improve in short order, though. With the population of the Web swelling, ads are popping up everywhere, and revenue growth is accelerating. ``There's been a real sea change over the last three months,'' says Daniel A. Stone, executive vice-president of Turner Broadcasting Sales Inc. Turner's CNN Interactive, one of three CNN Web sites, now gets 9 million page views a week, up from 3 million five months ago. ``Revenues and the number of advertisers have been snowballing ever since,'' says Stone, who says that CNN Interactive will break even by yearend.

Market researcher Jupiter says that Web ad revenue will jump from $71.7 million in the first six months of 1996 to more than $240 million in the second half. The company predicts an explosion to $5 billion a year by 2000. Then, it figures, 50 million people will be connected to the Net, giving advertisers the chance to reach TV-size audiences.

But media giants may not get the biggest share of this pie. On the Web, advertisers have a much greater capacity to aim their messages at people they know are buying--those looking at car reviews, for example. That's why, for instance, sites such as ZDnet, a popular destination for computer shoppers, are commanding top dollar--upwards of $100 per 1,000 impressions, vs. $30 per 1,000 on more mass-market sites such as Pathfinder.

Happy Puppy, the Web's No.1 game site is a happy beneficiary of this trend. It got started 18 months ago, when three developers decided to market their games by putting demo versions on a Web site. It quickly mushroomed, and cybernauts visiting can now sample all the popular games That makes the site a mecca for advertisers pushing everything from games to MTV to Sunny Delight juice. Happy Puppy's ad sales have been growing by 35% a month since May, and executives expect operating profits by October.

Tripod Inc. attracts advertisers by roping in GenXers at its site. The Williamstown (Mass.) startup offers tips on everything from writing a resume to personal finance for members of the 18-to-34-year-old crowd, a group that includes an estimated 40% of Web surfers. Founder Bo Peabody, 25, says the precisely tailored ``content'' has attracted some 90,000 registered Tripod members--and a slew of advertisers. Ads account for 95% of revenues, which have reached $500,000 so far this year. In the last quarter of this year, Peabody expects ad revenues of $650,000, which will put him in the black. ``Here we are out in the woods with a business model that's actually working,'' he marvels.

The promise of reaching hot prospects--not just consumers who might possibly be in the market--is persuading more and more major advertisers to put money into Web ads. Toyota Motor Corp. is one such company. It runs banner ads on sites ranging from Parent Soup ( to ESPNet SportZone ( And when a consumer clicks on the ad and is sent to the carmaker's own Web site, Toyota wastes no time trying to turn inquiries into sales. ``Advertising is going to become transactions,'' says Russell Collins, president of Fattal & Collins, a Marina del Rey (Calif.) unit of Grey Advertising Inc. ``The lines between advertising and marketing and retail transactions are going to disappear. The Internet is going to become a channel of distribution.''

Visitors to Toyota's site, for example, can order interactive CD-ROMs that show off the features of Toyota models, and before the CD-ROM arrives in the mail, a local Toyota dealer will call, inviting the Web surfer to come in for a test drive. Says James T. Pisz, national direct-response manager at Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc.: ``We're done with research. We're done with experimenting. The Web is part of the mainstream at Toyota.''

Not many big advertisers have reached that point, however, and that means few, if any, Web sites can get by on ads alone. To fill the gap, more and more online businesses are trying to get surfers to pay a subscription fee. Of all the business models for the Net, this is the least welldefined--and the one most fraught with risk. At the heart of the Internet culture has been the belief that ``information wants to be free,'' and millions of Web surfers are used to pulling down everything from NASA weather maps to audio clips from Seinfeld. That's why few content providers have tried to collect fees, and the total revenue from Web-based subscription services will be just $120 million this year, according to Jupiter.

GROWING DEPENDENT. Still, a few pioneers have shown that if you have the right information, the customers will pay. Silicon Valley's Inc., for example, charges subscription fees ranging from $9.95 to $42.50 a month for active investors who want instant access to financial analysis, news, and research. Like lots of Web sites, gives away time-delayed quotes. But the additional research and other data create a compelling bundle. ``People grow to depend on the service every day,'' says founder Chris Cooper. ``That's ultimately how you get people to pay a subscription.'' In March, was taking in $73,000 a month and turning a profit. Since then, Cooper has found advertisers who want to reach his 150,000 well-heeled customers, and the additional revenues are expected to boost sales to more than $4 million for the year.

Web companies moving the other way--from an advertising-supported model to a subscription/advertising mix--face a bigger hurdle. If consumers balk at paying, the audience will shrink and any gains from new subscription revenue may be wiped out by a possible falloff in ad sales.

But the pressure to turn Web sites from moneylosers to moneymakers is forcing more companies to take the chance. This fall, there will be a number of high-profile experiments. Time Warner plans to start charging for Pathfinder Personal Edition, a collection of Pathfinder material customized for each subscriber. And on Nov. 1, Microsoft will begin charging $19.95 for a yearly subscription to Slate, the online magazine created by Michael Kinsley. ``Customers will pay for good content,'' argues Laura Jennings, vice-president of the Microsoft Network (MSN). ``I do not think advertising is the whole answer, at least not in the next five years. So I'm a big believer in subscriptions.''

While former New Republic editor Kinsley finds out if cybernauts will pay for his new publication, New Republic chairman and current editor Martin Peretz will be undertaking a similar experiment. Along with James Cramer, a hedge-fund manager and financial columnist, he's launching The, an online publication for investors that promises up-to-the-minute news and features--with a ``slightly irreverent'' tone. It's scheduled for a late-October debut, and the founders say they hope for 500,000 subscribers within two years. Fees have not been decided.

Microsoft will take another stab at subscription services in October, too. That's when MSN reemerges as a Web service. For programming that ranges from Star Trek and Entertainment Tonight to all sorts of online special-interest sections, the software giant plans to charge $6.95 a month to subscribers who have their own Internet access. But customers who buy Internet service through MSN will pay $19.95 a month for 20 hours of use--comparable to other Internet access services and, in effect, making the content free.

VIDEO-GAME EXPERIMENTS. The most widely watched test will be The Wall Street Journal's. On Sept. 21, the newspaper's Interactive Edition, which had been offered since April for free on the Web, will switch to subscription (page 110). ``At this point, the subscription model is completely unproven,'' says Mark Mooradian, a senior analyst at Jupiter. But, he adds: ``If anyone can do it, they can.''

Meanwhile, away from the glare focused on Microsoft and the established media companies, there are lots of experiments in subscription Web services. Entertainment companies, including MPath and Total Entertainment Network (TEN), plan to start charging users of online games $2 or so for each hour of play--and will offer volume discounts for heavy users. 3DO, a maker of video games, will begin charging $9.95 a month in October for access to its Medieval game world, Meridian 59. Genie Interactive and Imagination Network, which was recently bought by America Online Inc., also will launch subscription-based entertainment sites this fall.

Little by little, consumers are expected to become more accustomed to paying subscription fees--just as they have made the move from free broadcast TV to cable service. Still, the Jupiter researchers figure that by 2000, only 40% of Web surfers will pay for such services. That will keep subscriptions the least likely source of revenue on the Net--reaching only $966 million at decade's end.

For now, however, all the multibillion-dollar markets in cyberspace are only a speculative gleam in forecasters' eyes. Before they become reality, the Net has to continue to evolve. The explosive growth of electronic commerce will depend on better payment systems. And a huge market for online content won't be practical until the Internet's pipes can efficiently deliver the sound, video, and animation that will appeal to a mass audience.

None of these obstacles, though, is likely to faze the clever entrepreneurs and businesspeople who already have found ways to make money on the Web. The returns may be meager, but these pioneers aren't a bit disappointed. Just ask CDnow's Jason Olim. ``At 10%-to-15% growth a month?'' he asks in exasperation. ``It's easy for me to be tired. But it's hard to be disappointed.''

50 UPM Malay Students Bully Chinese Students (Is This A True Story?)

Happened in Universiti Pertanian Malaysia (UPM). A group of Malay students acting like a babaric bullying a group of Chinese students. The Chinese students was believe to set up a counter for charity without permission. But the babaric act was uncall for.

I've just surfing around YouTube site and found this video. I am really shocked! Is this true? Oh My God! What happened to all these students? They supposed to learn in University but what they learned there is how to be a gangster or whatsoever. Settling problems in barbaric way is not our attitude! I believe if their lecturer or Dean see this video.. They must feel ashamed having these kind of students!

Any comments friends?

Malaysian Football Pt. 2

I found this Nike Commercial for Malaysian's new jersey in Youtube.

My point of view : No matter our players wearing Adidas or Nike jersey, things won't change. The only things have to change is our player's attitude.

Am I right? Please correct me if I'm wrong...

Malaysian Football Pt.1

Malaysia has been defeated by UAE in a friendly match.
Hmmm.. How are Malaysia going to win over China, Uzbekistan & Iran in this coming 2007 AFC Asian Cup? All of them are world class team.

So scared to think of.. Malaysia 0 - 7 China or Malaysia 0 - 5 Uzbekistan or Malaysia 0 - 11 Iran, but the potential are there!

From what I saw in the friendly match between Malaysia & UAE, I can tell that our team never improved.. at all! :(

Below is the news written in NST Online.

Football: Malaysia no match for UAE

MALAYSIA went down 3-1 to United Arab Emirates (UAE) in their second international friendly at the Petaling Jaya Stadium last night.
UAE opened their scoring in the 9th minute through Faisal Khalil.

Bruno Metsu’s team then took control of the match and put the Malaysian defence under tremendous pressure.

In the 52nd minute UAE increased their lead when Ismail Muttar scored and Malaysia were punished further in the 68th minute when Ahmed Mohammed found the back of the net.

Akmal Rizal’s persistent efforts found just reward when he scored Malaysia’s consolation in the dying moments of the game.

UAE dedah kelemahan skuad negara
Oleh Alias Abd Rani dan Bazly Azmi

HANYA dua faktor yang akan menjadi perhatian jurulatih skuad kebangsaan, Norizan Bakar sebaik menyedari anak buahnya masih belum memperbetulkan kesilapan menjelang kejohanan bola sepak Piala Asia, bulan depan.

Hilang tumpuan dan terperangkap dengan musuh melalui strategi yang tidak dijangka antara penyebab kekalahan 3-1 skuad negara kepada Emiriah Arab Bersatu (UAE) pada perlawanan persahabatan di Stadium Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya (MBPJ), malam tadi, sekali gus membuka peluang kepada skuad berkenaan untuk menebus kesilapan.

Menurut Norizan, apa yang disaksikan pada perlawanan itu seharusnya dijadikan iktibar untuk tidak mengulangi kesilapan pada pertemuan berikutnya, khususnya menentang Jamaica, 28 Jun ini, sebelum melangkah ke Piala Asia.

“Saya melihat walaupun kita tewas, pemain kebangsaan sudah menunjukkan satu tahap permainan sebenar. Inilah yang saya harap akan diperturunkan pada kejohanan sebenar nanti.

“Sebenarnya pemain kita mudah terperangkap dengan strategi lawan dan pada masa sama mereka juga mudah hilang tumpuan. Inilah yang akan diperbetulkan dalam tempoh terdekat.

“Perubahan beberapa posisi terutamanya membabitkan pemain pertahanan, Norhafiz Zamani Misbah di bahagian tengah dilakukan sebagai percubaan. Kemungkinan posisi itu akan dikekalkan atau sebaliknya dan semuanya bergantung kepada keputusan tiga perlawanan ini,” katanya.

Dalam perlawanan persahabatan itu, Malaysia gagal mengulangi kejayaan ketika membelasah Kemboja 6-0, Isnin lalu apabila tewas kepada UAE yang membuka jaringan seawal minit ke-8 menerusi Faisal Khalil. Angkara kesilapan pemain pertahanan, V Thirumurugan, UAE kemudian menambah jaringan pada m-52 melalui Ismail Muttar.

Tidak cukup dengan dua gol, UAE menambah satu lagi gol menerusi Mohamed Al Shihi yang mendapat hantaran Ahmed Mohamed pada m-67.

Skuad negara yang dilihat banyak memburu serangan tapi peluang yang diperolehi dipersia-siakan akibat ketumpulan jentera serangan. Bagaimanapun, di sebalik asakan itu, Malaysia meraih gol sagu hati pada masa kecederaan menerusi Akmal Rizal Rakhli yang menyempurnakan hantaran leret Eddy Helmi Abdul Manan.

Sementara itu, jurulatih UAE, Bruno Metsu berpuas hati dengan prestasi keseluruhan anak buahnya pada perlawanan itu selain menyifatkan latihan sembilan hari di negara ini menghadirkan petanda positif buat pasukannya menjelang aksi sebenar bermula 7 Julai depan.

“Keputusan perlawanan ini penting kerana tahap permainan Malaysia sama dengan Vietnam yang diundi bersama kami dalam satu kumpulan.

“Saya melakukan banyak pertukaran pada separuh masa kedua untuk melihat kesesuaian pemain bagi mengenal pasti kesebelasan utama pasukan selain memberi pendedahan kepada empat pemain muda bawah 20 tahun kami,” katanya.

Bruno berkata, pasukannya tetap mempunyai peluang untuk mengisi satu tiket ke pusingan kedua Piala Asia di sebalik pasukan pilihan yang juga juara edisi lalu, Jepun dilihat tidak menghadapi tugas sukar untuk melepasi saingan kumpulan.

“Semua pasukan memiliki kelebihan dan kekurangan tersendiri, tapi saya menganggap peluang pasukan dalam kumpulan kami sama rata,” katanya.

Argggghhhhh.. Keep on giving excuses dude! :(
Hmmm... Don't know what to say anymore about our team.. We only can pray that Malaysia will not be humiliated in this tournament...

2007 AFC Asian Cup Preview (from my own perspective)

Image Hosted by

Everybody are now talking about our national football team's chances to win Asia Cup 2007. Can Malaysia beat Iran, China & Uzbekistan to go to the next round? Hard to say..

To be frank.. I don't think Malaysia can make it this time.. It's not that I'm not patriotic or whatsoever.. but based on facts that we don't have quality players like other Asian's countries have.. Name such as Kiatisuk Senamuang for Thailand & Ali Karimi for Iran will open our player's eyes, at least that it's not that easy to reach their level and to keep on their big name remembered - for good & bad.

I only hope that one day Malaysia will have at least 1 player that plays outside our country - as a very professional player.. Not only looking for his own wealth but to make sure that peoples out there knows that Malaysia really have a diamond to be watched! :D

Here's some photos of the fallen tree..

The Husband Store

I've found this joke on a friend's blog. I keep on smiling when reading this joke..Let's share this joke, guys..

A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs. She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids. 'That's nice', she thinks, 'but I want more.' so she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking. 'Wow,' she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help with Housework. 'Oh, mercy me!' she exclaims, 'I can hardly stand it!' Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak. She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

Any comments friends? :D

Another Hard Day...

Another hard day for an officer like me.. So many tough decision to make in order to make sure my company operated smoothly.. So many workers that the company's have, just pretending that they are loyal to the company but the fact is not! Hmmm... How am i going to describe this kind of workers?

This evening I have to face another scenario in my office.. Our supervisor has made a bad example for another staffs.. Disobeying management order is not a good thing to show off! I really shocked!

How come your staffs want to respect you when you can argue management decision? And bear in mind that you are the 1 who has been choose by the company as a role model to the others.. What to say? Malay attitude are really bad when it comes to this part.. Sorry to say..but I have to.. I feel ashamed for those Malay who can't accept other Malay's commands but they won't argue if the commands were came from other races... Sounds like I'm condemning my races.. huh? The fact is there.. Try to ask your colleagues.. Is that what I'm saying true? Or I just mumbling around?

Come on all Malay folks... Stop dreaming!!! Wake up!!! We are now in war with other races to proved that our races is another great creature in this world!

Sometimes I really feel sad, Malay can't moved on.. But 1 thing for sure, Malay has a specialty in creating reasons when something can't be done in a correct way! :p

A Decision To Make...

These few days I have to face so many discipline problems from my staffs such as absent without leave, breaking company's rules, no co-operation with others and so many more.

If I make a list here, I'm pretty sure you guys will have a headache on the spot! :p

But, when it comes to make sure that they don't have a chance to breaking company's rules, I have to choose either 1 : friendship or career...?

Of course I will choose my career! And of course they can't accept my decision.. What to do? The company pays me to make sure their operations goes smoothly (by hook or by crook)..& friends are still hoping that I will close 1 eye for what they did..

It's really tough for me, friends..

The tough decision that I made those days is to fired some of my staffs...I really had to do it and I really hate to do so..really!

The decision has been made and I have to face the others.. They start talking to each other that I'm very cruel, I have no feelings and whatsoever..

Go on friends.. Keep on saying.. As long as the company still want me to work for them, I have to put aside my personal feelings.. No matter you are my best friend or even though you are my relatives, I won't compromise of any discipline problems & I mean it!

From the bottom of my heart, I feel sorry for those been fired.. I really have no choice!

That is what I learn these days.. No matter how good you are, rules is rules!!!

Moral Of The Story : We can't pleased everybody!
