Ready To Kick It???

(Background music, Wavin’ Flag by Knnana, Waka Waka by Shakira and The Cup of Life by Ricky Martin)

Salam 1 Malaysia?? No, this time Salam Waka Waka!

Hey!! World Cup is today guys!!! Are you excited?? Have you decided who will you be supporting this time??? I HAVEEE!!! In fact, I’ve mentioned my teams in my previous entry right? But few minutes ago, I’ve added one more team to my list. What team is that? WILDCAT! Keep reading.

The opening concert was last night. I didn’t watch it due to some ‘political’ problems in this house (duh!) but based on the pictures posted from the concert, I gotta say, it looked awesome! It had sooo many colours, represented the diversity of cultures, nations, people that gathered in Orlando Stadium to celebrate the most  famous game all over the world, the Fifa World Cup. Celebrities like Shakira, Fergie from Black Eyed Peas were also there performing the world cup songs.

South African Prime Minister, Jacob Zuma

Whoa! The spirit!!

Speaking bout songs, my favourite world cup song for this South Africa 2010 is Wavin’ Flag by Knaan. The song is sooo pure, I love the lyrics! I think the lyrics give a very deep and meaningful meaning to the African themselves. It’s not totally about fighting to win in the game, it’s not totally about the world cup, in my opinion, I think it’s more to fighting to success in their life. It talks about the achievement that they have achieved now (being able to host World Cup) even though they were once discriminated, faced starvation crisis and etc, long time ago. The lyrics are really good! But Waka Waka (This Time For Africa) by Shakira is not so bad too. Other songs like Sway, We Are The World are also nice to listen to.

In my previous entry talking bout Fifa, I’ve mentioned that my favourite teams this year are England and Spain right? Well, I would like to add, one more team. Socceroos! I had stayed in Aussie for almost 2 years, so I guess the spirit of ‘Oi Oi Oi’ is still here, somewhere in my heart. Thar’s why, I’m supporting Socceroos as well! Hehe

Here, some of the pictures of pre-South Africa 2010, the Fifa World Cup.

This African was selling the flags of the countries involved in world cup, this year.

And here Malaysians football maniacs, is the schedule for matches (group qualification) according to our local time. So, tonight, South Africa against Mexico. Be ready in front of your TV screen, at 10.00 sharp (or earlier). It might be a boring game coz both are not favourite teams, but hey! It’s the opening game. In any tournament, you gotta see the opening and final game. That’s the rule!
