..the monsoon and the cup..


..for the first time ever, Kelantan won the Malaysia Cup..we never won it during those heady days when Singapore was a participant, when Kelantan and Terengganu were arch rivals, or when Malaysia ruled the turf with the likes of Mokhtar Dahari and Soh Chin Aun..we never won it  when I was that carefree youth shouting myself hoarse as Dali Omar took to the field with aplomb, and my butt burnt from the hot concrete seat of Stadium Sultan Mohamed the IV drenched hot by the afternoon sun as the game started at 4.30 pm..

...we won it when this old geezer had given up of Kelantan ever winning the cup..we won it when I have become an old horse left to roam free in the meadows..with no more spring in his trot, and with just a memory of the fire that burns in every staunch and fervent a supporter's heart  that he still is..

.the next day, it rained..the skys darkened with black clouds hiding the sun..the rain came along with howling wind and cold..it is like as if the final that Saturday night was the turning point for the monsoon to start..

..for mekbu, it is time to nestle her litter of 4..


...Trengganu may have the Monsoon Cup..but we have the monsoon and the cup..cheers to the red warriors..

Isn't it wonderfully to be warm and cozy inside, when it's cold and wet with monsoon rain outside? I love your pix of the new kittens!!!

Salam Bangmat, I much prefer Kelantan monsoon cup, the Trengganu one is notorious...

I remember Dali Omar, at one time Kelantan was trailing 3-0 then he was substituted and Kelantan went on to win 4-3, or something like that. I was being blown by the strong wind up at the end of the rhu barnch then...hmmm..the good old days
