Kalimah Kangkung

I know, I know – I said no more kangkung gags! But I can't help it. I have to make an exception – after all, it is breaking news!

It has now been determined that only Najib Razak will be allowed to use or say the word 'Kangkung' after this. And PerKaSa, i.e. Persatuan Kangkung SatuMalaysia has vowed to defend this kalimah kangkung!
Now before the UMNO fellows think that I am being disrespectful to the Prime Minister – I would like to express my gratitude to Najib for bringing down the price of kangkung. If some people are so desperately in need of praise, then I give lah!
Friend Ann Marie Sidhu couldn’t resist after reading my Thursday post (i.e. The PKFZ Fraud that Wasn’t) and she came up with this response: “Ah Victor, mushroom to lettuce the people have a laugh and not be grump pea. Sawi, carrot help myself and I don't guava a hoot about who has a grape about it!” Good one, Ann Marie!

Celtic continued their unbeaten run in the Scottish Premiership with a comfortable 3-0 win at home to Motherwell on Saturday. Kris Commons pounced on an Anthony Stokes shot to open the scoring inside the first five minutes. And a foul by Motherwell keeper Gunnar Nielsen on Stokes allowed Commons to convert from the spot in the thirty-ninth minute. Celtic then sealed the game when Stephen McManus deflected a James Forrest cross into his own net in the 68th minute. Celtic is now thirteen points clear at the top of the league table.

On the other side of the border, Liverpool hosted the Villans at Anfield in what turned out to be a thrilling EPL match, as Andreas Weimann stabbed the visitors ahead (25) before Christian Benteke's header (36) deservedly doubled Aston Villa's lead. Daniel Sturridge pulled a goal back for Liverpool in the forty-fifth minute as he latched onto Jordan Henderson's flick. Steven Gerrard's penalty in the fifty-third minute levelled matters after Luis Suarez went down under goalkeeper Brad Guzan's tackle. The match ended 2-2.
The Reds should have won, could have won. But the first-half horror show ensured they took just one point!
