Charity Music Gala '09

For RM10 a ticket, I attended the Charity Music Gala ’09, organized by the Helping Hands of HICT – their purpose was to raise funds for a “home” in Klang. Amongst other acts, the show featured Sasi the Don. I do think the audience made this event a success – especially the international students who loudly gave their whole-hearted support with their enlivened applause and boisterous cheering. A show can be mediocre, but the showgoers can transform it into a rousing and rip-roaring show!

Celtic surrendered the lead (25th minute) as Hapoel Tel-Aviv won 2-1 in their Europa League match. The Scots controlled the rest of the half, but Hapoel emerged for the second period re-energized. With the Scottish visitors pinned back, Nemanja Vucicevic slammed in the leveler before Maaran Lala stabbed in the winner from close range on 88 minutes. The defeat will leave a sour taste in the mouth for Celtic after leading for so long in the game, but their second-half display left a lot to be desired. Celtic shouldn’t be outclassed this way!
