Eager to try out my recently acquired D90, I took some time to go and watch the Agong's Cup Rugby final played at Bellamy ground, Sungai Besi with my 'assistant', Eiddin. it was his first time watching rugby and he had fun. Back home, he was busy re-enacting the tackles and the scrummages.

Back to photography - I only have with me the 50mm and 18-50mm. A severe handicap for such an ambitious venture. I decided to pick a spot and will only shoot the actions right in front of me. Below are some of the pictures. It's pathetic, I admit. Go on, pummel me. The rest can be seen at myflickr .

Rugby: Fighting Kelantan stun Forces


KELANTAN staged an amazing comeback to beat Armed Forces 18-14 in the final to be crowned the Agong's Cup champions at Padang Bellamy, Sungai Besi yesterday.

Trailing 3-14 at halftime thanks to tries from Mohd Irman Mohd and Ahmad Farhan Azizan, a demoralised Kelantan look destined for defeat at the hands of the 11-time champions but came roaring back after the break with tries from Nazreen Fitri Nasrudin and Mohd Saizul Hafiz Mohd Noor in the 55th and 63rd minutes respectively.

Kelantan manager Mohd Noor Nek Alias said his team were struggling against the Armed Forces forwards in the first half.

"We knew they (Armed Forces) had quality forwards and we struggled in the first half.

"But we managed to work around the problem and it showed in the second half," said Mohd Noor.

Kelantan last won the tournament in 2005.

Armed Forces coach Nor Hisyam Ibrahim said his team lost focus in the second half.

"Kelantan came out a different side in the second half and we lost focus which resulted in a lot of loose passes from us," said Nor Hisyam.

"We did gain some momentum in the final minutes but it was too late."

Kedah, the 2008 champions, managed to salvage some pride by beating Sabah 20-11 in the Plate final.

You are now 7!!! Do you realise it? You are a big boy now. Dah boleh sunat. We probably do that during your year end school holiday. Do you know that now I can whack you if you miss your prayers? I think you know.

Have a go at the pictures of your birthday at my flickr.

We are still at a loss of things to get for your birthday. We bought you an Al-Quran because you've said you want one for yourself. I know you and Eiddin would be happy if we got you an Ipod Touch but that's out of the question at the moment. Some more, you already have the PSP! Uncle Joe suggested that we get you the NERF gun, like the one he bought for his sons . He said then we can get all of you together for a shoot out. We will have to think about that.

Thank you for the times you are with us. I must admit that it is not rosy all the time between you and Mama and Abah. You are growing up and we are learning too. Believe us when we say that we only want the best for you. We want you to be the best there is in whatever that you do. Sure you do get a lot of scolding but that is part of the process, hehehe...

Now that you are 7, you must act like one. A 7 year old boy do not quarrel with his little brother over toys or the choice of tv channels. A 7 year old should sleep in his own room on his own. A 7 year old should be more independent and not be clingy to his parents anymore.

You should now be able to think of what's good and what's not. You have to cease shouting at Eiddin and stop throwing tantrums if things do not go as you wish.

Please however to continue to be the good boy that you are. A little tweak here and there will make you even better. Don't slack on your studies though all seems easy for you now. It will get harder, believe me.

One more thing, soon I will have to take you out on a serious exercise because it does not escape our attention that your waistline has been increasing by the day.

That's all for now. I will write to you again soon. Meanwhile, please remember that Abah and Mama love you very much. Happy 7th Birthday and have fun for the coming year.

Until later.

Love, hugs and kisses,

Abah & Mama

Finished the run in about 1 hour 30 minutes. The timing could have been worse. The route was a series of ascent and descent. The hill on the final km was a real killer. Even with only 1 km to go, I succumbed to the challenge and was only able to walk before picking up speed on the final 500m.

It was a good outing with great company of the usual suspect, Azizul and fellow KPTC members.

Will be back next year to attack the hills again.
