These Foolish Games

So i have been back in the dating game for a while and I must admit i have met some amazing women. But i don't understand this whole playing hard to get deal. Or acting aloof. Why is that a woman can be so accomodating one dinner and so distant and cold the next. And then blame it back on you.

Not just a matter of personal experience but also just general talks with guys. And even some girls.

So some advice for women. If you like a guy, please la don't play so hard to get. Or maybe they are just not into you. Though I am sure this post is going to get some reactions eh.

Weird place in my head

Am sure you have been here before. In fact i think you we all been here alot. Where you question life and wonder what your purpose in life. Where through the course in your life, did you reach a fork in the road where you might have taken a wrong turn. Probably because age is catching up on you (hint hint my birthday is this Saturday).

Just a room of gloom over yesterday was a bit worrying for me. Though I feel i am doing well in life, i think there is so much more i can do.

Been pretty mooody these last few days and can't put my finger on it. I think i need another break. So am looking forward to the whole christmas break. 8 days in Penang sounds great right about now and it can't come soon enough.

Even while i write this i can't seem to focus on how to write this out.

So even while i contemplate life i am sure millions of people around me are doing the same but we all have this tough or cheery exterior that people don't know whats going on with your life.

I usually don't like to rant and leave out personal life experiences from this blog and am usually quite riddle-y here. But i guess I do it to put my own thoughts on screen so that I can look back at it and understand.

Ok obviously i am not making any more sense. So i will stop now but hopefully happier entries to come.

By the way, reminder that every saturday I will be deejaying in Velvet. So come party with me ok.

The problem with Malaysian football fans

Now before you bite my head of thinking that I am making fun of all football fans, you are wrong. I am just amused with a large portion of wannabe football fans.

The term “lalang” always comes to mind when talking about football fans in Malaysia. Here’s an example, if you have been following football fans like I do in Malaysia, here is a simple thing I have realized. 5 years ago, how many people did you see wearing a Chelsea jersey out? Probably close to none. But they win the premiership and guess what? A sea of blue jerseys at your favorite mamak come game night. Most of which were purchased at your local pasar malam.

2 years ago while watching the world cup, I was watching the game between France and Brazil. The final score was 1 – 0 to France. Being a France fan I was overjoyed that the win put them through the finals and also beating one of the best teams in the world. The joy was shared with my friend Alex, who was standing on top of the table screaming profanities at the other team fans and yelling out words which I can only believe was his attempt to scream french words. I also think I saw a tear in his eye. He was hugging me and telling me that he has been waiting for this day for years, ever since the victory in ’88.

A week later at the final between France and Italy, I decided to watch it at your local pub to feel the enjoyment of it all. With my France scarf, I watched as my beloved france score the first goal, but was equalized soon after.

It was down to penalty kicks and when David Trezeguet stepped up I felt a churning in my stomach. He missed and the game was over. Already down and very upset, I felt a jab on my right arm and a voice going “Hahahahah Viva la Italia!!”. It’s Alex laughing his brains out, and jeering me. Screaming profanities at France and professing his years of love for Italy. First of all my dear friend Alex, the phrase “Viva La” is reserved for France, and even I know the cheer for Italy would have been “Forza Italia”.

From that day onwards I decided to play attention to new football fans, and to see what sort of weird things they would do to prove that they love their team.

Being a radio dj, I sometimes get calls from listeners that call to put down my team. This is all fine by me because part of the love of the game is the banter that goes on between fans. Then came that fateful day when Manchester United took away the 50th unbeaten run from my beloved Arsenal. All the calls I got the next time I was on air was tremendous. It got to a point where I could not take it anymore. This one guy who has called me at least 6 times was being relentless. So I asked him how long he has been supporting MU. He replied with “I love MU, they are the best team in the world, there is no other team that I love more” Which I continued with “So if you love your team so much, what is the name of their 2nd string goalkeeper?”. The reply was “Barthez”. And he hung up. Fabian Barthez had left the team 2 years before. And this sort of made me feel better.

It seems like there are these groups of people who decide on a weekly basis which team to support. They probably have fake jerseys of the top 4 teams which they carry along with them and decide which one to put on during half time.

I think that in Malaysia, we are still young and therefore finding out mentality even to the point we are still finding our football teams. But our problem is that we support a team that we can use to put someone else down. It’s probably peer pressure or just the joy of knowing that you can spend a good Saturday night jumping for joy with the rest of the city, even though you don’t know the names of your entire first string line-up

It’s these people that tick the real football fans off. Which I know in Malaysia are a plenty. And to these people I take my hat off to you. No matter win or lose, you still support and love your team.

Football is a passion and I wish all the football fans, good luck with your premiership season and “Viva La Arsenal!”

Really bad nursery rhymes

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To have a little funStupid
Jill forgot the pill
And now they have a son.

Mary had a little lamb
Her father shot it dead
Now it goes to school with her
Between two hunks of bread.

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,
Her clothes all tattered and torn
It wasn't the spider that crept up beside her
But Little Boy Blue and his horn.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the kings horses and all the kings men
Had scrambled eggs on toast for breakfast.

Hickory dickory dock
Three mice ran up the clock
The clock struck one
And the others got away with minor injuries.

Mary had a little lamb
It walked into a pylon
10,000 volts went up its...
well, you know
and turned its wool to nylon.

Can't see the forest for the trees.

This saying means that you don't see things that are obviously right in front of you. Now some of you might think that this is a true statement. That sometimes its the things in front of you that will make the most impact in your life. Not so true after long evenings of thinking about stuff. It's not really looking at the forest but whats in it.

Basically trying not to sound to riddle bound, I am exploring new things in life. And i discovered that as a human being, life changes constantly and so does events. So what looks good know might not be the thing for you in a year.

Aiyah basicaly i am being fickled.

But here's the good news. LAst night I had to DJ in Velvet for their Mambo night for a little while. It was basically a short audition for me to be resident DJ in Zouks new club called Phuture. It will be open sometime in mid october. I will be there every friday and will be spinning a lot of Ol'Skool Hip Hop & R&B. And were talking really funky stuff ok. Not so much the "Yo Yo Wassup" stuff you hear now. So keep reading and I will update you when the time comes.

Pietro Pole Dances!

So you might not know this but for the last 6 weeks or so I've been practicing with Hannah Tan for a nationwide pole dancing competition. No we didn't take part but we were the celebs supposed to perform for the finals. I must tell you it was real nerve wrecking but in the end we had fun doing it. Props to our trainers from Viva Vertical for putting up with us. Anyway here are the final results from our performance. Video is not great quality but I will see if i can get a better one later on.



Now if you want to see the pros do it. Check out our Trainers, V, Lola, Adam and Jon. These guys make it look easy and fun as hell.

Selfish

Ok ok i know it's weird that I am posting an N'Sync song here. But this song is probably one of their best. Very under rated. Listen to the lyrics. If you think that it's just a pop song then you are wrong. Just take a listen.

Please watch this video

Check this video out please!!!. This girl stood in front of hundred of people and had the guts to tell them what she really thinks. This video really makes you think. I hope you will tell people about this video. And if you can upload it on your facebook, blog, myspace or wherever you can. Thank you.
