The Nottingham Malaysian Games 2011

They say that it was the biggest Malaysian sports event in the UK.

I say..


The Nottingham games has a lot to offer for us, students, such as futsal, netball, basketball, volleyball, ping pong, badminton, lightning chess, scrabble and surprisingly, congkak and batu seremban. There was no tennis and football though, which I was a bit disappointed since tennis is a very popular sport. (I could've participated!)

Oh well, beggars can't be choosers, no? Our bus trip was only one hour from Sheffield and I was quite surprised to see a few from Dublin who came to join the games. 100++ pounds for a return flight yaww.

Majulah Sukan Untuk Negara.

I didn't watch all the games offered though but futsal, basketball and badminton games were really knee jerkers- with high intense action, especially in the futsal final match, in which Sheffield thumped Manchester 2-0. During the match, one Manchester player got red carded and slapped the referee where I thought it was really unnecessary and poor sportsmanship.

"You did two bad tackles and complain about your red card? Ni nak tampar referee plak. Chill la bro"

I met a lot of friends at Nottingham but sadly couldn't grab a picture or two with them since the moment when I meet them were kinda....awkward, like:

1. Im going inside the bus, a friend going outside the bus.
2. Im going inside a toilet, a friend going outside the toilet.
3. Im going outside for lunch, a friend going inside for his game.

And etc, etc..but still it was nice to meet all my friends although it was only for a brief period. The highlights for the Nottingham games were ofcourse the Malaysian food festival, where authentic dishes from Malaysia were served to satisfy our craving for Malaysian foods!

FYI, apam balik costs 2.50 pounds here..hahah. Anyways, here are some pics from the food festival, the games and the trip. :p

I hope you readers enjoy the pictures!

Next up, Sheffield Games 2012!!!

This time, i'm sure to participate. Hahah.
