#16 Oregon 23, Washington St 34

Jed Collins caught a touchdown pass and rushed for another score as Washington State upset No. 16 Oregon 34-23 Saturday, dealing a blow to the Ducks' hopes for a BCS bowl appearance. Collins, a little-used tight end, helped end a scoring drought for the Cougars (5-3, 3-2 Pac-10), and Washington State's defense held the league's top offensive team without an offensive touchdown until midway through the fourth quarter.

Oregon (5-2, 3-2) got off to a shaky start and Dixon was replaced by Brady Leaf after throwing a second interception. Dixon entered the game averaging nearly 240 yards passing, but was held to 105 yards and no touchdowns. Leaf threw scoring passes of 4 and 36 yards in the fourth quarter. He completed 16 of 27 passes for 262 yards and two TDs.

Ducks starting tailback Jonathan Stewart, who was averaging 100.5 yards, was held to just 28 on 11 carries. He was spelled by Jeremiah Johnson, who finished with 63 yards on 12 carries as the Ducks, the top rushing team in the conference, were held to 104 net rushing yards.

Even The Minister is Promoting Road Fatalities

The Prime Minister is sad and angry over high road fatalities. He should not just be sad and angry, but ashame of his minister's act as pictured in the photo below.

Well, it's a good gesture to present hamper to the first user of the Majlis Link. But, how do you expect this guy to carry the hamper on his bike? Unless he has crash-proof hair like Mr Samy, in addition to his helmet... and they all look so happy realizing their act might add up the 'numbers' for Ops Sikap.

He's Angry, I'm Not Scared

I think he's angry.
Is it for real?
I think so..
Are you scared?
Oooo.... verrrrryyyyyyyy.... hehehehe

First, he said we have the right to be angry on the Klang Assemblyman's house issue. Only now that we've the right to be angry with corrupt assemblyman? And why we need someone to tell us that we've the right to be angry? Isn't it a country that practised freedom of speech and freedom of expression (albeit a controlled one)?! Similarly, as a parent, why you need to tell you kids that they have the right to eat when they're hungry?! :-)

Secondly, he's angry (and sad) of the road fatalities. You should be even sad when people have to queue and spent long hours in traffic jams, unlike you who has police escorts. You should be even sad when people think twice or more than that whether or not to 'balik kampung' because of the high price of tolls and fuel, when you can ease through highways without forking out a single sen from your pocket.

Or are these angry and sad episodes are part of the election plot... to win the heart of the people?! Bullshit!!!

Bad Salam Raya Dari Perantauan

I dont mean to hurt anyone's feeling but just want to stress the bad choice of pictures, especially on a special occassion like Hari Raya.

So, what's wrong with the picture above? Well, it's meant for Hari Raya greeting (from someone abroad) to friends and relatives in Malaysia. However, it's a Hari Raya greeting, Hari Raya should be a holy celebration and you don't want to associate the day with devil, in this case the red devil of Man Utd. <--- Too bad of a choice.

Worst still, she's not even studying in Manchester. The greeting is from Leeds!!

Why do we always say "friends and relatives" but not the other way round? Shouldn't relatives come first in term of priority?

Dog's Love

Am I a dog? Emm... not quite.
I fulfilled two of the three criteria above... enjoys a quiet life and loves to go on long walks. So, to avoid being a dog... I shall not remain loyal to one woman, maybe loyal to two or three or four.. :-)

A girl friend asked me this morning, "If you are married for 15 years, what would you want for your anniversary?" I spontaneously replied, "A new wife!" She was really upset because she got the same answer when she asked someone else earlier...

#18 Oregon 30, UCLA 20

Dennis Dixon threw for 144 yards and two touchdowns and No. 18 Oregon rebounded from a humbling loss with a solid 30-20 victory over UCLA on Saturday. Brian Paysinger had four catches for 105 yards and the Ducks (5-1, 3-1 Pac-10) while Jonathan Stewart ran for 121 yards. Going into the game, UCLA (4-2, 2-2) led the Pac-10 and was ranked second nationally in run defense, allowing an average of just 50 yards a game. But Ducks ran for 256 yards.

Oregon was fast and efficient on its first drive, scoring on an 11-yard pass from Dixon to Dante Rosario. The point-after was blocked by UCLA's Justin Hickman, making it 6-0. Jeremiah Johnson added a 7-yard touchdown run for the Ducks, before the Bruins made it 13-3 with Justin Medlock's 35-yard field goal. Before the end of the first quarter, Paysinger outsprinted Bruins free safety Dennis Keyes and caught Dixon's 26-yard pass in the end zone to make it 20-3. Medlock had a 48-yard field goal before the half to narrow it to 20-6.

James Finley caught a 4-yard TD toss from Oregon backup Brady Leaf in the second half after Dixon was hit hard earlier in the series. It was Leaf's only completion of the game. Bell's 1-yard scoring run to open the final quarter narrowed it to 27-13. Matt Evenson attempted a 45-yard field goal for the Ducks which fell way short, but he later made a 21-yarder that put the Ducks ahead 30-13. Bell scored on another 1-yard dash with 1:59 left in the game.

Something to cheer up the weekend...

Worst Day of My Life

Some people said 14th is a unlucky number. Coincidence or what, I think it's really suwey!!! Today, 14th October is a worst day of my life... at least for the year, I think. Usually I could handle things that don't go the right way but I just couldn't today.

It's supposed to be a relatively ok day, with some plans and it started in the right mode. I woke up earlier today, got my hair cut and my car washed but things just didn't go as planned after that.

Someone was acting like we've not planned for buka puasa together today, someone else just didn't answer calls or reply sms, and someone else wanted to scape-goated me for something, and someone else was broken hearted because earlier on I said I couldn't buka puasa together because I've another plan but now the plan is cancelled and I was accused as a liar. CRAAAAPPP!!!

Now, I'm going to have sushi for my buka puasa, bought from Giant. Don't feel like eating if not for my empty stomach...

Here goes Aerosmith's Crying....

Somehow, I've found love with Giant's sushi. Tried to look for sushi in Tesco but doesn't look as good as those in Giant..

Really Really Bad Quote Of The Day

On the recent AP scam issue...

"He (his son) is not clever at doing it... to be a fraudster you need skills. Fraudsters should be always be a notch above their victims. If one were smart, one wouldn't clone all the APs in a week. There should at least be a three-month interval. He didn't learn from me or I could have given him some tips."

- The AP Scam Senator, Muhammad Abdul Ghani

Even Customs director of prevention could not believe his ears.

What lah a Senator can say like that, memang tak guna, very arrogant! Patut kena campak kat dalam zoo Steve Irwin in Australia and let the crocs eat him alive. Bodoh! Nak ajar anak sendiri buat jahat, how to become example to the rakyat.

Marhaban di Astro

I think today is the most 'sempoy' bukak puasa, at least for this year. Got invitation from Astro to bukak puasa with Astro artistes who participated in its Marhaban di Astro. So, I was sitting besides Faizal AF4 during bukak puasa. Lots of stuff we managed to talk about, including his dietary, his fatigueness and a bit about his activities and also his raya plan. Too bad he only get 2-day break for hari raya.

I was never really really like Faizal but he's ok, cool, smile and laugh all the time, very polite, humble, natural... unlike Mawi who looks more serious most of the time. Zarina AF2 was supposed to sit at our table did an escape act and sit in other table later on. Kurreeennggg.... Mawi was sitting in VIP table 1 (mine was 2... or 3) but he wasn't there most of the time.

Others at the function include Hazama, Haziq, Edlin, Salima, Zahid and Zainal Alam together with Fitri as the hosts. Bukak puasa was continued with performance - including the one where Zahid was singing M. Nasir's hari raya song... satu hari di hari raya, bla bla bla... he continue singing it "dua hari di hari raya, tiga hari di hari raya, empat hari..." until if I'm not mistaken dua puluh hari di hari raya. Crazy lah that chap!

My favorite performance was the one when Hazama and Haziq sang Ramli Sarip and Jay Jay's
Senandung Hidup Berbudi. Hazama's voice is always classy, too bad he didn't make it to AF4 top 12.

And one for the album...

I think I'll support Faizal more than Mawi lah from today. He deserved the support and also I believe he treasure them.

#11 Oregon 24, #16 California 45

California passed like a Duck, tackled like a Duck and even dressed like a Duck - and the Golden Bears did it all much better than the Oregon. The Bears took control almost from the moment they ran out of the Memorial Stadium tunnel wearing new, garishly gold jerseys. The surprising shirts looked just like something the fashion-forward Ducks would wear - but the Bears backed up that bold color with another series of big plays in their fifth straight blowout victory.

Pac-10 rushing leader Jonathan Stewart managed just 25 yards on 18 carries for the Ducks, whose spread offense never managed to find consistent holes in Cal's defense. Oregon quaterback Dennis Dixon had an awful game, he finished 20-of-35 for 263 yards and three interceptions after throwing just two picks in th Ducks' first four games.

It was the most anticipated game but the most horrible. Not a good weekend as the Ducks lost, so does France who lost to Scotland in Euro qualifier and also Michael Schumacher who did not finish his race in Japan.

This is another one of my favorite songs - from one of my favorite bands too...

"I sit here on the stairs cause I'd rather be alone
If I can't have you right now, I'll wait, dear...
Sometimes I get so tense but I can't speed up the time

But you know, love... There's one more thing to consider..."

I always sing this part especially when I don't get what I want, e.g. the job I went interview for...


In office, usually they sit on the stairs to smoke... hihihihi...

How's It Going To Be

It was officially announced today by my CEO that he has tendered his resignation from the company. It cleared the air as rumors have been flying around over the past two weeks. Questions still remain - who's the replacement, would we still have a CEO in the future or just a GM to run the company.

Earlier (like two months ago) it was announced that the 'bread and butter' for our company will be transfered to our sister company and we'll be doing business on something new with revenue hardly reach RM100 million a year. And worst still, the currently 800++ manpower size will be shrinked to around 250, where more than 550 staffs will be transfered to other sister companies.

So, how's it going to be for the company?!

The question reminds me of one of my favorite bands' song...

Although no relation to the resignation of my CEO, the song is still sooo sedaaaappp to listen to...

#14 Oregon 48, Arizona State 13

The 14th-ranked Oregon Ducks came to the desert aiming to prove their controversial victory over Oklahoma two weeks ago was no fluke. Oregon used a balanced attack and a relentless defense to crush Arizona State 48-13 Saturday. Dennis Dixon threw for 215 yards and three touchdowns, Jonathan Stewart ran for 142 yards and Jaison Williams caught 10 passes for 137 yards and two touchdowns. The Ducks registered six sacks and limited Arizona State to 175 yards.

Arizona State suffered its worst home loss in six seasons under coach Dirk Koetter, and its worst defeat in Sun Devil Stadium since a 59-23 loss to UCLA Nov. 12, 1994. Koetter fell to 2-18 against Top 25 opponents. Arizona State, after being ranked 22nd two weeks ago, has been outscored 97-34 over the last two Saturdays.


Next up: #11 Oregon Ducks awat at #16 California Golden Bears. The winner of this match will challenge USC for the Pac-10 title.

Unmanageable Peaceful Country

There is no war or coup taking place, no tsunami or typhoon or massive flood or earthquake or any natural disaster you could think of. But the picture looks like the country is under certain crisis, just like the Somalian queueing for food. Yes, it's Malaysia.

I don't know why after so long, the call from even the highest hierarchy of the Government - on sugar supplies - fall on deaf ears. Can't government give an ultimatum to the 'sugar king'? In the end, the Government has to resort to importing sugar. And even our military now have added job scope - to send sugar to remote areas where sugar suppliers refused to send the supply to.

What happen here? Even the sugar suppliers are not listening to the leaders' call. Kalau orang Melayu cakap, macam 'tong kosong'... cakap dan buat bising banyak-banyak tapi takde hasil. Macam tu lah agak nya kerajaan/pemimpin kita.

Even the importance of sugar and salt was emphasized in one of Allahyarham Tan Sri P. Ramlee when they were presented as birthday gifts - not sure what movie is that. And still the Government took so long to finally decide what to do. Wonder how would they manage the country if it's under a serious crisis, even no crisis also very porak-peranda! :-(
