13th SUKMA? vs World Cup




With World Cup catching my interest, I overlooked about the SUKMA games..until I read that it was officially closed..hehe..

Glad to know that Terengganu became the overall champ, but the medal collections had decreased...was it bcos the 2008 event was held in Terengganu itself?

Better prepare for 2012 games in Pahang from now.

mmm...Its been a while since I managed to get any souvenirs from SUKMA games :-)

In d meantime on World Cup :


Brazil 3 : 1 Ivory Coast


By Martin Rogers, Yahoo! Sports

"Kaka was given a second yellow card by French referee Stephane Lannoy when the Ivory Coast’s Kader Keita was not looking where he was going and collided heavily with the Brazil midfielder. Kaka merely held his ground for the inevitable contact, and the incident in no way warranted a free kick, let alone a yellow card."
