Short Talk:

This Saturday 28th March, residents of the world celebrates Earth Hour by turning off their lights from 8:30pm to 9:30pm to “give Earth a bit of time to rest”.

Landmarks throughout Malaysia including KLCC, Penang Bridge and all major shopping malls have pledged their support. I too am proud to support Earth Hour. But because I’ll be in Sandakan this Saturday, the best I could do is turn off the lights in my hotel room. Err... a bit the no impact right?

Hopefully, this time we’ll do better compared to our pathetic attempt last year.

Inside Old Trafford Stadium

What the heck.

Man United lost again over the weekend. This time by 0-2 to Fulham, an underdog they’ve beaten twice before.

I think I’ve really jinxed it. Before this, they had like a two month undefeated record.

The day after the Liverpool match, I had a chance to follow the Mister Potato team visit Old Trafford again. This time to see what goes on behind the scenes in The Theatre of Dreams.

Tickets to the stadium tour were sold out pretty fast. Many disappointed fans turned away at the counter, but we were lucky to have made an earlier booking.

I must say, the experience was nothing short of sensational.

DSC_9484

The stadium tour itself although very short, was extremely well worth it.

We walked through the same tunnel the players went through and sat on the same bench manager Alex Ferguson sat on just a day earlier. We were literally just centimetres away from the pitch.

To our surprise, the section devoted to the players was actually quite small and basic. No plush sofas, marbled pillars or gold taps.

Can you imagine stars like Ronaldo and Rooney hanging around a place like this? It’s nothing quite like the luxurious six-star facility I had expected for those mega-rich star players who earn obscene salaries of at least RM 500,000 a week each.

There’s a bar that serves food and beer (after the match) in the player’s lounge, and even a creche for them to leave their kids for car with the nannies.

An International Honours Board lists every player that has every played for Manchester United since their inception.

David Beckham is arguably Manchester United’s most famous player on the Honours Board.

DSC_9439

His name is listed there, right above the Butt.

Other stuff of interests around Old Trafford includes this chewing gum disposal board.

I bet something somewhere in that tray has Alex Ferguson’s spit in it.

“Respect The Game, Respect The Referee”

In football? Yeah right!

DSC_9436

Without a doubt, the best part about visiting Old Trafford for me was the opportunity to enter the players changing rooms.

DSC_9475 

This is the exact same spot where players freshen up and get changed at half-time while listening to Alex Ferguson’s fiery lecture. The shirts on the wall show where each player normally sits.

We must have visited the stadium at the wrong time, because while we were about the enter the changing room we noticed a someone familiar inside.

Holy shit.

Ryan Giggs, is that you!?

Looking at the tetek we know that's ROOney.

Unregistered

Visited the stadium back in 2006. You missed out talking about the spa and massage room...

Unregistered

No la.. That was Kenny!

Unregistered

Unregistered

lol

Unregistered

come ON UNITED!!! GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED!

Unregistered

Congrats Kenny, u've been on the ultimate United pilgrimage:)):))

Unregistered

LOL you really did. I wonder if you should go over to Liverpool now? I mean, no offense but for the sake of the club? :p You'll be the unsung hero for jinxing them then.

Also brush up on your United history. No true-red(blue) fan wouldn't know their club history from head to toe. The Butt is actually a really good player who didn't get enough chances at United and he had to move to get more 1st team games. I always thought he would've been a great replacement for Keane than buying Carrick(whose performance fluctuates).

Now you've just made me even more keen to visit OT at least once in my life. And I'm halfway across the world. T.T

Unregistered

Giggs with a tummy like yours?

Your tummy sold you out.

hahaha~

Unregistered

Unregistered

*envies kenny*

Registered

Registered

It's so sad. Once you support MU and they lost for 2 games.

Maybe you should back to Chelsea in order for MU to win? xD

Unregistered

O.o you're going to be in Sandakan this Saturday? OMG >.

*is not a stalker, no need to worry*

Unregistered

hey Kenny,

Next time, try Santiago Bernabeu, Camp Nou or San Siro.. They are excellent stadium and you can see the difference in dressing room between British stadiums and the rest of Europe (am taking about major football countries of course)

Unregistered

I think tht's you, Kenny. Haha!

Unregistered

LOL, sexy :P

Registered

haha. nice one. for a sec there I actually thought it was Giggs.

Unregistered

gosh!!! please!!!

Unregistered


Malaysia should order more chewing gum boards like that n put in lrt stations. 1st job for najib as PM?

Messi vs Ronaldo. who u support? vote for it in my blog!!

Unregistered

Urggh! You're really a jinx...

Unregistered

other clubs really owed it to ya...

kindly stay on longer with MU...

Unregistered

Haha... Judging from the chest hair, it's definitely not Giggs. Remember during the FA Cup match he ran through Arsenal defences and scored the spectacular winner...? He strip and showed us how hairy he is... More like tropical forest on his chest right to his stomach and goodness knows where it ends...

Unregistered

that...definitely is kenny, hello...if they pay u giggs' wages for the kind of performance that you would show (in football)...it will only ended up as MU's worst investment, LOL!

Unregistered

Nice Tits! lol!

Unregistered

walao eh.. so jealous la... u can go there

Unregistered

Haha, wow, i must go there someday...

Hmm, who is that on that last picture???

Unregistered

Don't worry about not making any impact during Earth Hour when you're in Sandakan this Saturday.

There's a chance you'll not only get Earth Hour but Earth Minutes/Earth Hourssss courtesy of Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB)

Turn off lights kacang only lah Kenny... SESB will 'off the karan' for Sabah. In fact, they rehearsed Earth Hour in KK just 2 nights ago!

Unregistered

been here for nearly 3 years now but haven't visited the stadium ever. Probably due to the fact that I am not much of a football fan.

Unregistered

How can Beckham possibly be the most famous player on the list? He's certainly not the best..

Registered

Hairy tits! I know that is not belongs to you.

Unregistered

Kenny, as a patriotic Malaysian, I can't believe that you didn't blog about UMNO election. As far as I am concerned, your entries about Malaysian politics always received great response from your fans. I feel so sad that you have been "tied" by the government too. Seems like there is no longer democracy in Malaysia. *sob sob*

Unregistered

It's definitely Kenny Sia. Giggs has so much more hair. Ahahah and he's not fat. =P

Unregistered

i bet tat was you kenny!

Unregistered

Kenny I can recognise your tetek!!!!

Unregistered

Hey kenny, about the Earth Hour event in Sandakan, you have to know that Sandakan has always been giving its full support in switching off lights. Our rate of blackouts here could be the top in Malaysia.=)

Unregistered

haha....

respect the referee!

Unregistered

i am a man u fan, thanks for posting all this, kenny... eh... i mean ryan giggs

Unregistered

earth hour in malaysia ?? (click)


(am not the owner of the blog btw)

Unregistered

I didn't know Giggs had a one pack :p

Unregistered

it's actually a barrel not a pack...
again, why need 6 packs when you have 1 barrel?

Unregistered

oh my..... cool ! !

Unregistered

sure is an awesome experience to be able to witness the changing room and all, all the local fans would be going frenzy over that lol!

oh just a blog i came across over youtube, really liked it and want to share it with u guys ;)

www.kampaitube.blogspot.com

Unregistered

I was told that Old Trafford Stadium doesn't have a rubbish bin inside the building. The reason is that they are afraid of bomb threats i.e. to avoid having bombs hidden in rubbish bins.

Unregistered

All the train stations, tube stations, etc. also don't have rubbish bins (or didn't use to anyway) for the same reason

Unregistered

you wish, right? :P

Registered

Isn't that you? *LOL* I recognise your body *LOL*

Unregistered

you better go there more often... then Man U can continue to lose...

Unregistered

your rug is nothing compared to Giggsy's.

Unregistered

Damn....why did a fucking poseur like you get the chance to visit Old Trafford when ur not even a fan...

Unregistered

gotta agree with Jo... David Beckham the most famous United player? Yes he is among the finest to have worn a United shirt but what about Cantona? Charlton? Schmeichel? And Nick Butt was a great anchor in seasons surrounding the treble winning 99 season back n front, he just moved to make way for young blood like Sheringham, Cole and Yorke did... You clearly should not say a thing about football anymore, most of your words about the sport are simply disgraceful... I'm a trueblue Chelsea fan btw and for you to act like you support and know about Manchester United, you seem quite dumb about the team to me....

Unregistered

Walao cbk u go so many time

Unregistered

I don't agree with it, kudos to you for making the effort to come up with it

Unregistered

man u just a boss

Unregistered

Filehippo
oh wow.. lost weight tricks.
