AMRC 2010-Pulau Duyong Terengganu

So after being in Terengganu for a week for the Malaysian Match Racing, the week continues for the Asian Match Racing Championships. Of course the favourite team Phil Robertson from WAKA Racing (New Zealand) who is also the defending champion has got my vote in winning this years' match. And guess what?! He actually did win beating David Gilmour from Australia.

In all honesty, the only team which I think has got cute crews is the WAKA Racing Team, seriously! Hey! I'm a girl and I'm allowed to look and have an opinion! :p Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me this year....but wait I think I have Phil's photo from last year's Monsoon Cup..oh wait, sorry, I don't have his picture :(. Will try and get it during the 2010 Monsoon Cup ok? :P

Alright then, time for some shots from the race....mostly crew and me...teehee

That's Sharin, Epol, Nadzry, and me!

trying to do my research...

crew photo!! finally all of us together!

There you was quite fun, 2 long weeks in Pulau Duyong. And all are looking forward for the Monsoon Cup 2010.

For now, go on and tell your friends to check out my blog ok! ahahaha

Love Love!

MMRC- Terengganu

Here I am in Pulau Duyong Terengganu. My days hasn't stopped for the past 2 months I think? :p After the Commonwealth Games, the next day I had shoot with Cipta Asia for the Rhb The Star Mighty Minds (Sat n Sunday), then on Monday straight to Terenggau for the Malaysian Match Racing Championships (MMRC) and the Asian Match Racing Championships (AMRC).

The race during the Malaysian Match Racing was quite slow during the round robin, so it was quite boring, that because there was no wind! I had to do a lot of waiting. Of course there were the favourite teams such as the Koo siblings, Tiffany and Jeremy Koo. This was the first time they faced each other in a match! 2 years in a row when Tiffany won the MMRC 2006 and 2007, Jeremy, the brother was one of her crew member. But this year, Jeremy decided to skipper his own Team.

It was definitely the right decision because Jeremy managed to steal the title and won the MMRC 2010. So this mean, he will be competing in the Monsoon Cup, together with International sailors.

My money was on the defending champion, Hazwan Hazim Dermawan. He's got so much potential and after winning last years Championships, he managed to score some sponsors for his team, PULSE and AC LAW. Now he's spreading his wing and as we all know, with sponsors, you can go really far. So, next year, Hazwan will be racing at the Korea Match Racing! So proud! Even though he didn't manage to defend his title this year, but its ok..he still has a long way to go. Experience does count because in real fact, Jeremy has more experience than he does.

WAH! This is like an article for the papers or something kan?? ahahhahha oklah, let me put some pictures up..

Masa ni tengah boring..hehehe

Of course you need this to move around in the Ri-Yaz Marina..

Dammit! i don't know why I cant put anymore pictures?? Takpe nanti I sambung ok!

Love Love!

Here Comes the Champs!

We decided to do links in the studio today..our very small studio. We got the 2 Gold Medalists, Amirul Hamizan Ibrahim and Aricco Jumithi to come in to the studio for a chat. I was very nervous because it was my first LIVE sports! Whatever it is, I was excited to take on the challenge. The boys were really shy!! but very sweet. :P Really proud of our athletes here and wishing them all the best in the other sporting events.

This morning we got a little surprise visit from Tunku Imran Tuanku Jaafar who came to see us at IBC. Of course I did not miss the opportunity to snap a picture with him.heheheh

and last but not least, jangan jealous ok! because I got the chance to hold the GOLD MEDAL and parade around with. hehehe

That's it folks! More to come!!

Luv luv!

CWG Day 4

India has gotten to us! This is what we did during our free time at IBC...well not actually free time, but to release tension..

Tuesday, October 5, 2010


The day didn't start out right. Our call time was suppose to be at 8am but the driver came late. As we were waiting outside we saw a car drove in...all banged up! and we were saying to ourselves "please not let this car be our ride". Well, it wasn't at first, that car was for the reporters but because the cars' radiator was leaking, we couldn't let the reporters have that car coz they needed to go around town with it. So we took the kereta rosak instead.

To get to IBC, it takes about an hour from our hotel, The Courtyard by Marriot. As we were driving , we noticed the car stopped and we found out that our car had a flat tyre! And we are talking about serious flatness!!

What is that?? A nail?? A big ass nail?? That's what I thought at first but it was actually a bloody SCREW! how the hell do you get a mother of a screw stuck in your tyre??

To add to things, the driver doesn't even have a spare tyre! We had to wait for someone to bring it over. We finally got to IBC 2 hours later.

"Welcome to India" and it truly is "Incredible India".

Wonder what's in store for us tomorrow....

Sorry but no picture today coz I was afraid to bring my camera in due to the most menyusahkan security check. Yesterday my food got thrown away so...anyway, here's what happened today :

1) went out to several locations to do links for squash, swimming, hockey,weigh-lifting and off course we had to go through securities. Today I decided to bring minimal things out of the car. Guess what happened??!! THEY TOOK MY LIPGLOSS! I wasn't allowed to bring it into the swimming stadium! They were probably afraid I would paint the pool pink!

2) Then it was off to the Squash court. Here it was pretty straight forward. Because the entrance to the stadium was far, we had a shuttle bus to take us in. As we stepped in, our "Squash queen" Nicole David was painted on their wall! Awethome! The Siri Fort Stadium was quite nice because it was built around the old fort so it actually had some historical sites around it.

3) Then it was off to the Jewarhar Lal Nehru Stadium where the opening ceremony was held. We were there for the lawn bowl event. Dahla nak masuk macam taik, the volunteers don't even know their way around. So like yesterday, we were sent to walk all around the stadium. In the end we had to search for our own way. There's no signage that makes sense. One minute they say we can exit here but when we reach the security check, they say we cannot exit. KEPALA HOTAK! So back to where we started and met one of the volunteers and told him the problem. He apologized and my cameraman Pulen said "Dont say sorry, do something about it!'". Tu dah lepas geram sikit.

4) Finally at the Hockey stadium which is around the same area - all we wanted was to take an establishing shot of the freaking building. We have a media pass/tag that allow us to go anywhere (apparently not!) but the police decided that we cannot take any shot of the building. Got one the people with the green t-shirt (who is above the volunteers) to help take us around. We told him (coz he understands English) that:- "you are making our life/work difficult. We are trying to promote your place to our country in Malaysia. its not our loss if we don't get this shot. Stop giving us problems and you better talk to your organizers to give briefing to all your freaking volunteers and police and securities so that everyone is on the same page." Itu dah panas habis dah. I told them off. Mana tak-nya after walking so far thanks to them, then they come and tell us another bullc**p! Siapa tak marah?!

There was also a point where we wanted to get out of the place and they didn't allow us to! Apa hal?!!

Haiyo, well that's a brief on what happened on the 2nd day of the CWG. Feel free to tell anyone about it :)

More to come!

Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010

Hey! I'm actually here in India for the Commonwealth Games. I'm hosting the highlights for Astro Arena channel 801. U know how a lot of people were saying that u will get a culture shock when you come to India? Well, I actually didn't experience that, probably because of the "clean-up" that was done for this huge event!

The security at the IBC is ridiculously tight that it's actually becoming annoying! At the stadium was even worst! There were like 5 security checks and at one of them, I had to throw away all my snacks. I need them for my gastric but unfortunately it had to go to waste. I think it's also coz The Prince of Wales was there. Besides that, we had to walk reeeeeaaaaaaly far to get in coz cars were not allowed to go into the stadium area. I think the 3 of us (afiq and pulen) actually walked for like 3km!

Once we got in, we were asked to go here and there without proper directions. We were walking like idiots and we couldn't even find a spot for us to plonk our camera! Finally we just did guerilla style. We had to rush the footages from the opening ceremony to be transferred back to Malaysia. Man that was quite tiring.

So far day one experience has been interesting. OHH!!! I forgot, we nearly got pick-pocketed!! Choo (arena personnel) and I went out to buy food for the boys and as we were talking to a few boys for directions, and just as we were about to get in the car, Choo noticed her bag was unzipped! She thought all her stuff were gone ie passport, company money and etc! But thankfully as we were driving, she remembered she had put her purse in a different pocket of the bag! PHEW!! Panic giler siot! Imagine passport hilang??!!!

So that's a lil piece of India for us - "WELCOME TO INDIA!"

luv luv!
