No no not by my girl friend or scandal. You naughty boy!
If you read my last entry about Android from Apple, where I acted dumb and 100 % agreed to this star Futsal player just to keep playing Futsal with them. There is a reason for that. Actually for the past 2 months, I played Futsal at Sportbarn in PJ with this 1 Malaysia team. Mostly Chinese, a few Indians and Malays.
How The Story Begins
They invited us to play with them a few months ago when both of us did not have enough player coincidently. So from there, My other friends and I started to play regularly every Friday night from 9-11 pm with them. Until recently, they tried to ignore us and gave a lot of reasons. Last week, they gave excuse that they did not play on Friday nite but changed to Sunday.
Before this they did mention that they have booked and played on Friday nite for the last 6 years and suddenly wanted to change. Something fishy around there. My instinct was right. One of my friends confirmed that this 1Malaysia team played on Friday nite. They cheated us. Why ? I did “belanja” them drinks, tell jokes and laugh with them, isn’t that how you maintain good relationship? At that moment I realize that our relationship is over.
If you read this my 1Malaysia team, I hope you enjoy playing Futsal without us. No more free drinks and jokes for you. You will never see my cute Damia cheering for me.”Papa, dah score ke ?” haha. She kept asking me that. Sometimes she would be mad if any player tackled me hard.
I will find a new team that plays faster and more skillful than you guys even if I have to admit that Android is from Apple hehe.
Last Tuesday, I was invited to play Futsal by old friend at Sport Planet Section 16. We had a terrific game, since they all are younger and faster than me. FYI I did score one goal ok. After that we had a drink and discuss about our smartphone.
Froyo so fast
One of my friend had this LG phone with Android Froyo OS. So he showed me different kind of game and app that he have. Mostly are game app. It was kind exciting with touch screen and online game.
But what I am going to tell you is about this fellow who confidently talked about his experience using Android. He told us that Android is developed by Apple. According to him, Android is popular more than iPhone 4 and bla bla. I dont know where he got his information but I can say that he is really sure about his statement.
I would love to correct his statements in front of his friend and laugh “guling-guling” but I have to think twice. Actually it was my first time join this team to play futsal. So like it or not, I have to save his face.Plus he is one of the star player, so of course you have to agree with him haha. If not next time, you might not get invited to play with them again.
I have my own reason
Its hard now days to find a complete team at my age to play futsal. Most of my friend busy with family and works. So if you find a good team, better take good care of it. : ). I even “belanja” them energy drink and pay more for Futsal fees hehe.
So I have to pretend that I agree that Android is from Apple and hopefully I can play futsal next time with them. Win Win situation hehe. Enjoy your weekend guys ,
p/s Did I tell you guys that Android is from Google. Ok I just did ; )
p/ss Maybe the popularity thing is true but not from Apple hehe

NO, not my blog. It’s on my wife’s blog The Other Side Of Me. : ). Pagerank 2 and written in Malay with 378 follower.
At first I was against her cheap fee because it’s not worth her effort. Can you imagine with RM 30, you can get 3 entry permonth to advertise your business and 125×125 banner. But she have her own reason. She did for fun and just love to write.
She already got 2 clients and she is really excited about it. The main reason I want to write about her effort because, all payment will be made through my Maybank account. Hahaha. You know why? Because she don’t want people to know her real name. Haha. You know la women nowdays.
Anyway I want to praise her effort on making money online. She always focus. So as long as it make money, I will always support her. Keep it up dear.
So anybody want to advertise, please leave a message or go to her blog. Aleeya01.
That’s all for now.

DigitalTrends.com reported that according to Microsoft associate general counsel David Finn, La Familia Michoacana an elite gang in Mexico makes profit $800 million annually by selling pirated software and counterfeit products. Coincidently, I just finished watching NCIS Season 7 where Gibbs final confrontation with Paloma Reynosa, a cruel druglord in Mexico. So i can imagine how notorious they are.
The New York Times recently reported that one of the most notorious and violent drug cartels in Mexico was using counterfeit software as a “low-risk, high-profit complement to drugs, bribery and kidnapping.” The article stated that the cartel distributed the software through thousands of kiosks, markets, and stores in the region, and demands that sales workers meet weekly quotas, describing the operation as a “form of extortion” on locals.
La Familia Michoacana also make sure that all the local vendors to met sale expectations and put “FMM” logo (Familia Morelia Michoacana) on thier counterfiet products. According to Finn, the logo which also featured on the pirated office 2007 not only effect Microsoft’s reputation but also make consumer uncomfortable.
Pirated DVD in Malaysia
How about here in Malaysia? Do drug lord or ah long aka loan sharks behind this counterfeit products and pirated DVD movie ? What do you think? . Selling pirated DVD movies can make a lot of money easily. The price of the DVD can be just 20 cents but they sell it for about RM 10 each. So who do you think is behind this “cetak rompak” and pirated software ?
Of course they are criminals, and we who bought the counterfeit products actually support their activity. If the drug cartel can make millions of dollars in a year, I believe the people behind this pirated dvd can make millions of ringgit too. Also bare in mind that, consumer who bought this pirated DVD also can be charged.
Open source is the solution
I just gonna to say this once, buy original or get open source software. Don’t buy pirated Window or office, sooner or later Microsoft will detect and keep bugging you which is kind of annoying. Just imagine that the money that you use to buy this pirated DVD will be use for criminal activities like drug activities and gangsterism. Can you live with that?.
There are a lot of opensource software that are FREE to use and download. You can even asked them to mail you the installation DVD such as Ubuntu. There are OpenOffice that is as good Microsoft office and Ubuntu which is better than Windows : )
