Nadal to play in Shah Alam too this November?

Although I'm not 100% sure about this, but my source said that Rafael Nadal is definitely coming to Malaysia!

I don't understand why The Star want to keep the news tightly to themselves by not mentioning Nadal's name in the exhibition match in Shah Alam. NST sounds more sincere in letting us tennis fans know that not only Fedex and Pistol Pete will be visiting us in November, but also Nadal, the indisputable clay court specialist.

My source also said that Nadal will be playing against a local veteran tennis player. The only player that I can think of is none other than Adam Malik. Since this is an exhibition match, I don't mind settle for this match although I would like to see Fedex play against Nadal in my homegrown.

And by the way, to those of you who came into my blog searching for places to get the tickets to this exhibition match, don't worry because the organizers have not make an announcement yet. Give them some time and you guys will see it in papers.

rest day

I had a tough day working yesterday because of eye infection/stress. I couldn't even eat since yesterday because I was too distress by the situation.

I thought long hours of sleep last night would help but it didn't. Believe it or not, I could barely open my eyes because its muscles were so weak.

This morning I was taken to the nearest clinic. Even the doctor didn't want to stare long into my eyes. He gave me an eye drop, medicines to relax eye muscles and to relieve pain and itchiness and asked me to take 2 days off.
After taken the medicines and sleep for the whole day, now I'm fresh and my eyes are okay again. I'm not sensitive to light anymore. I can even blog right now. So I'm going back to work tomorrow. Miss my work.

So guys, don't concentrate too much on your work or in front of your computer for long hours.
Always remember to take a break in between work. I have no problem when I was younger but I guess age is catching up.

a human beatbox better than Blake Lewis (American Idol)

You think Blake's Lewis beatbox is cool?

Wait till you hear from Joseph at the Nouvelle Star audition, a French reality television show based on Pop Idol. My friend send it to me and I thought I want to share it with you guys who have not seen this before.

It seems that The Star did not mentioned about Nadal playing in Shah Alam this coming November. However, the news in New Straits Times (NST) reported otherwise, that Nadal is going to play against a mystery opponent.

I wonder why the news are not consistent. Well, I want to believe NST because I don't really trust anything reported (or not reported) by The Star. The most popular local English newspaper has the tendency not to report certain news to protect their personal interest. Well, of course I also want to believe that Nadal is coming to town.

Meanwhile, my sister might be able to get free passes for me to watch Fedex and Pistol Pete in action. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Anyway, tomorrow will be the first day of the French Open. It's my favourite Grand Slam since Michael Chang won the championship in 1989.
I'm sure if you remember, that was one of the proudest and memorable moment for all Asian and Chinese people around the world.

Okay, no more mentioning about Nadal now. Will save it for his first round match.
