Two Frogs Leave Sabah UMNO

Yesterday, the frog migration re-started. Two founding leaders of Sabah UMNO, its former treasurer and presently chairman of Sabah government-owned Suria Capital, an investment arm of the state Dr Ibrahim Menudin and former federal deputy minister Yahya Lampong crossed over to the PKR opposition.

Also yesterday morning, I went to participate in the MIMKL’s Humorous Speech & Evaluation Contests and I emerged champions in both. The question now is, which club shall I represent?

In the afternoon, I went to Open University Malaysia’s city campus to attend their Toastmasters meeting. I was the General Evaluator and it was indeed a good meeting even though they started thirteen minutes late. A 6 out of a 10 score for this meeting.

In Saturday’s EPL match, Liverpool worked hard but Sunderland was able to keep the former at bay. The latter in fact scored first when Steven Fletcher tapped in for the Black Cats (29) after Craig Gardner's mazy run and cross. Luis Suarez saved the Reds the blushes when he sidefooted in (71) after his initial effort came back off Sunderland’s Titus Bramble (an interval replacement for Carlos Cuellar). The final score: 1-1. Didn’t I say to fire Brendan Rodgers?

This was Liverpool’s first game after the shocking findings of the Report of the Hillsborough Independent Panel was published, showing evidence of a police cover-up. Flags around the Stadium of Light were flown at half mast in memory of the 96 who died as a result of the tragic events of April 15, 1989. And fans in the Liverpool section unfurled banners, among them the now-familiar “Justice for the 96’’. Also each Liverpool player wore a tracksuit top bearing the figure 96 when they emerged for kick-off.
