I sincerely wish to thank Dennis Chew, Syed Mohsin, Kay, Alice and Sherry for the superb organisation and the scoring. A special thank you to Castello and Hamzah Amin for the splendid arrangement with the Mega Lanes management. To Azza, Shahrom ,Haji Anuar, Ah Meng, Ngau, Azhar, Haji Azmi, Akob, Rafee, Salwa, Apiss and Hafiz, thank you for the support. To Haji Shahimi and Awang, thank you for sharing the lanes where I scored 225. To Alex Tong, I will keep your money till you come back to beat me. To Dato' Burn and Tuan Wahab, both your presence had made the tournament meaningful. And to all the rest who had been a good sport.
To Fendi especially, you can keep the trophy for a week and after you had finished taking pictures with it, please return it to be displayed at my office. The same trophy will be up for grab next year! Hopefully next year, the champion's prize money will be raised!

Happy New Year 2009 and for those who had not won anything, please train hard and who knows you might get invited again next year 2010.

  1. DSN,
    1) Very good of you, good move and congratulations for organizing such this meaningful sporting event...

    2) Personally I think, sport / sporting event is a maeningful & an excellent people relations building event, and bowling is one of the best since it can easily get many people of different levels, professions, ages, genders, etc to involve. Bowling is a family sport too..

    3) Even, I think you should extend suggestion to our politicians to use bowling (or other suitable sukan rakyat or sukaneka, but still for me bowling is the best since it is playd in the aircond environment) as relations building event with their community and do it periodically.. YB turun padang bersukan dengan rakyat, lepas tu makan2.. Maybe this would help the YB to better win hati rakyat - YB spending time bermain2 dengan orang kampung or its community..

    4) Quick look, you have many good people around you willing to help and supporting you, I think the main reason because you are very good person to them and people.. Keep it up Dato'... Well done...

    5) Alex's money tu.. Boleh frame kot...
