Roland Garros for The Lefty

The Lefty rules the world!

For instance, I never a fan of Rafael Nadal. As long as I remember, Roger Federer always be my choice in tennis. I am not entirely sure why Federer always gets mine before, except I tend to watch over and over again the same people won the game and making the record hard to break by the newcomer.

Anyway, this Roland Garros changes my way on tennis. I felt a bit depressed after Ferrer beat Federer, for the record at that moment I still hope Federer would reign as the champion at Roland Garros this year.

After Federer lost his way, I still watch the games till the one between Ferrer and Nadal. Seriously, that game changes my perception on The Lefty completely.

The fact is, if I am not mistaken, Nadal was the only lefty tennis player. It only makes him just an impressive player after all. The way he returns the served ball using the left hand, I can say, is superb and in his own class.

One of my friends lamenting him as a predictable player. He says Nadal was easily predicted on how he return the ball and which direction would he took. Alas, tonight Nadal proved my friend was terribly wrong!

Nevertheless, we should not forget how Djokovic continuously made a series of unforced errors throughout the game. Yet we knew these surely gave advantages to Nadal, plus he already claimed as the King of Clay.

To make mistakes at Roland Garros when you have The Lefty as your opponent is unacceptable if you ever dream to be crowned as champion there. Another obvious turning point in this game is the deuce. It always is a booby trap to Djokovic.

The last time I checked, Djokovic failed in all deuces in this game. See, how many points drops to The Lefty just drags the game into the deuces.

For all those great displays and courage, The Lefty crowned for the 9th title of Roland Garros. Congratulation!

The Lefty now only 3 Grand Slam titles behind Federer and only need another 4 more titles to become the all-time successful tennis player. Like I said earlier, I love to see the champion retain and regain the titles as it would make the newcomer tried damn hard to break the record.

Why I choose to support The Lefty? Yes, I will continuously explain in upcoming articles time by time. Carpe Diem!

Pengajaran Dari Sebuah Komik

Sejak kecil lagi, saya telah didedahkan dengan berbagai jenis komik bacaan ringan seperti Doraemon , Dewata Raya, Utopia, Naruto dan sebagainya. Namun ternyata saya lebih berminat untuk “mendalami” komik-komik Kung Fu karya penulis China seperti Tony Wong melalui karyanya Jejak Wira. Seperti biasa, kepulangan saya kali ini ke kampung halaman dalam misi menghabiskan beberapa buah Jejak Wira yang dibeli oleh abang semasa ketiadaan saya di rumah.

Ternyata plot ceritanya meskipun panjang dan tak pasti bila penghabisannya namun ia tetap tidak membosankan. Menjadi semakin menarik dan sukar bilamana ia melibatkan pergolakan politik dunia yang terang-terang menyebelahi siapa yang kuat dia yang menang.

Setelah “menelaah” kesemua komik muktabar ini saya seakan terpanggil untuk mengulas karya Tony Wong iaitu Jejak Wira yang mana saya kira ianya amat dekat dengan apa yang berlaku kini di dunia realiti.

Homosexuals and The Idea of Abnormality

Once ago, my friend and me have a little chat about stuff—if not mistaken, we gossiping a hot Math teacher from Italy, and from where it began, we start talking about gay and LGBT.

The pinnacle of it was when my friend proudly declares the gay people is abnormal.

I just sit still, silent and stunned.

I should start somewhere. Here it is, for myself, to be abnormal is to be true to oneself. And it is a kind of freedom that I longingly seek and understand, that is to be true to yourself, to who you are.

It is a freedom to be able to against the flow. It is a freedom when we do not favor the external to validate ourselves. To do this, first, we have to be abnormal, in the eye of the many.

Anyway, I don’t mean to philosophize anything here. It is just a version of abnormality that I always think and perceived before, and luckily (no pun intended), that day comes when my friend bluntly declare homosexuality is abnormal.

And, I have to revisit my thought on abnormality.

I am OK with her…

Tentang Si Genius Adi Putra

Ini coretan ringkas awal Mac 2015, beberapa hari lagi sebelum kita akan tiba pada hari yang menandakan setahun hilangnya MH370 tidak ketemu. Coretan ini tentang Adi Putra, si genius cilik yang dulunya begitu popular, semua media mahu mendapatkan cerita tentangnya.

Kini, di mana Adi Putra? Kita bertanyakan soalan begitu kerana kerisauan kita adalah kisah Adi Putra ini akan menjadi senasib generasi genius Malaysia lain-lainnya. Tentulah kita berharap ianya tidak berlaku demikian.

Hari ini mStar kembali dengan cerita tentang si Adi Putra ini. Saya antara peminat beliau. Saya kepingin mahu bertemu dan berbual dengan Adi Putra. Saya mahu berkawan dengan beliau – dan belajar dengannya. Tapi, Adi di mana?

Jika membuat carian di Google, yang berderet keluar di halaman utama adalah kisah tentang Adi Putra, si pelakon layar teater. Untuk apa ambil tahu tentang si pelakon itu. Bukanlah mendapat apa-apa manfaat pun pada perkembangan akal dan ilmu pengetahuan. Entahlah.

Cerita mStar membuka episo…
