Lee Chong Wei's Bad Luck

As soon as I read today that Rosmah Mansor, wife of Prime Minister Najib Razak had left for London yesterday to give support to Lee Chong Wei in the 2012 Olympics men’s single badminton final match where he will meet his nemesis, China’s Lin Dan. 

I knew intuitively that she would bring him bad luck. 

True enough, Lin Dan grabbed the gold medal when he beat Lee 15-21, 21-10, 21-19 today. Lee’s hope of winning Malaysia's first-ever Olympic gold was ruined again by the same Chinese player who similarly thwarted him in Beijing four years ago. 

Sorry, Lee, but next time, please leave Rosmah at home.

Liverpool FC on Saturday became the first Premier League club to be officially represented at a UK 'Pride' event as the Reds took a stand against homophobia. Representatives from LFC Ladies and the LFC Foundation marched alongside LFC LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) at Liverpool Pride.

Also, yesterday, I was at the MIM Toastmasters Club of Kuala Lumpur meeting and it was very well-attended. Speeches and evaluations were however, just plain average and none impressed. Still, even if I was a little bored, it was great to be there, if not for the speeches, at least to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the fellowship amongst members. 

I would give this meeting a 5 out of a 10.
