If only we can play the North Koreans (updated)

PM condemns North Korea for “holding our citizens hostage"


There's this comment in my last post.

In Malaysia, selection to team sport - as in education or government employment - is by race and not merit.

This has lowered the overall prowess of the nation - the growth from the previous 20 years has mainly been via debt, easy money from petroleum. This allowed this who are not very smart, to assume that they were very smart and were bringing results - these 'results' were built on paper stilts.

Can Malaysia pivot? Let's see......
I don't think this is entirely true.

I think we really select our sports teams based on merit.

That's why our current badminton team is almost entirely Chinese while our football team is almost entirely Malays.

This is so, because I believe that it's just so happened that there are more Chinese who play badminton while more Malays play football.

Malays like badminton too but they prefer to be the spectators, the same way Chinese like to watch football but not so much on being the players.

Malays cheered our Chinese shuttlers while Chinese cheered our Malay footballers.

In between we got the Indians and those of other races, whom we all cheered together too,

Really, that's the way it is in this country.

Only those who themselves are very racially prejudiced can't see that.

We also honoured our sportsmen and sportswomen based on merit.

There's Datuk Lee Chong Wei, Datuk Nicol David, etc.

I believe that in education and employment, we are also moving in that right direction.

Yes, there are still racists among us, but I believe that we good people outnumbered them and one day, not long from now, will overwhelm them.

Given time, I think all those racial complaints will be irrelevant.

We just need to be patient on this.

We should be more positive about ourselves and our country.

If there are bad things, like our football, we should try to fix it, instead of just complaining and being negative about it.

We are really not too bad, okay.

Malaysia is not so bad.

We are even quite brave.

You all can read about it at Rocky's latest here;

Don't mess with Malaysia

Well, this part is a bit too bad though,

6/3 FAM: Cabinet will not allow national football team to play North Korea in Pyongyang on Mar 28 for Asian Cup 2019 qualifying match/STAR

Okay, I understand that it's a bit too dangerous to let our footballers play over there.

Don't know what other crazy stunts the North Koreans may pull on us considering the strained ties.

Our players may not even dare to wipe their sweaty face with a towel after the match.

However, if only we can get to play them at a neutral venue.

I think our footballers would be more motivated than ever to play well in such a match.

It's really for the country's honour, you see.

Seriously, I think they will go all out, considering the circumstances.

And we all, regardless of race or religion will be united in cheering them on.

We will be at the height of our patriotism, watching our team play those dastardly North Koreans.

I'm sure of that.

Most importantly, the whole thing would be very good for our national unity.

Well, of course, we will also hope that if we can't win the match, the North Korean team will not beat ours too badly.

Hopefully it's not five zero or something like that.

But still, it's not totally impossible that we can win.

Can never tell, okay.



  1. "Our players may not even dare to wipe their sweaty face with a towel after the match."

    Seriously. I agree with you Annie. And I don't think they can this joke too.

    1. A reminder for all suffering sentient beings .......

  2. Annie,

    North Korean politics sucks but they excel in some sports.Diving, weightlifting,table tennis are among some of the sports in which they do well especially at Asian levels.

    Their footballers are a technically skillful bunch who play compact football with short inter changing passes.
    Their defenders are the no nonsense type and most times end up giving away needless penalties.
    NK plays the 4-2-4 system and always provides stiff resistance to the likes of South Korea,China, Uzbekistan and Japan in World/Asia Cup qualifiers and in other tournaments as well.
    Some of the North Korean players have played in Europe,JLeague as well as in Middle East too.

    If we can get any points from the tie, it would go a huge way in lifting our spirits. And then we can start believing Malaysian will slowly but surely climb up the FIFA rankings.

    We were 75th at one time....

    Need to chase dem crazy bald-heads out of town if we are to get back to the top 100.

    Rasta Rules

  3. I would want to learn and believe that it be more of a discrimination rather than racism. However, education is the key to all those hangovers.

    Perhaps, in love, more loves and more making loves would help Rocky Bru no-win situation.


    -As many as 6,000 lecturers in public universities, including professors, were either terminated from their jobs or had their contracts not renewed last year due to budget cuts.  

    It is estimated that the total number of public lecturers has dropped to 29,000, compared with 35,000 previously.

    Malaysian Academic Association Congress (MAAC) president Prof Datuk Dr Mohd Idrus Mohd Masirin said public universities had been adversely affected by the budget cuts in 2016, by at least 30% to 40%. 

    He said the Education Ministry's move had forced universities to cut academic staff.

    Dr Mohd Idrus said some public universities had even resorted to not hiring administration staff to keep costs low.


    1. Jibby must be heaving a gargantuan sigh of relief with this N. Korean murder... now he can play-play on the side of "good guys" - damned shit wanna fool us all in time for PRU time!!!

  5. Wisma putra shld hv sent back our staff and families weeks ago. Any idiot wth half a brain would hv anticipated the ban on Malaysians leaving. As usual, our officials only know how to "react". Ambassador and wife happily home.

    This psycho regime kidnaps people. And we shld deport all their citizens here except diplomatic staff. Sure many will cabut for asylum.

    Useless Jibby should have put this as top priority instead of grovelling and bodek-ing King Salman.

    Pity our people there. Very dangerous for them.

  6. "Given time, I think all those racial complaint's will be irrelevant "

    Selagi atak bulan dan bintang ,Wa manyak ingat ini racial problem tatak bolih habit maa aa .

    SJKC n SJKT lagi tatak tutup maa aa .

  7. Gendang patriotisme telah dipalu.Skrip 2013 berulang kembali.Sekalian rakyat bersedialah untuk PRU bulan 5 nanti.Wahlawei...Takdir benar2 di pihak Najib😮

  8. I was the 'anonymous' who posted the comment - travelling so IP Address will be different - I appreciate your reply; and your kindness to overlook my misplaced word.

    Unfortunately I don't share your optimism- although a vast majority of Malaysians are overall good people - we are not guaranteed to be able to maintain the level of growth that we have seen in the past. The structural inefficiencies are far too rooted to be weeded out at ease. It is great to live in a country where we can agree to disagree if we choose to - perhaps that is wealth in itself!

  9. Annie, our darling sync divers Pandalela and her partner beat North Korean divers to 3rd place in recent diving competition in China.
