Outstation at Tenom - "gateway to Murut country"

Been away for a week, not at Penampang but at the interior division of Sabah... Tenom and Keningau. Frankly speaking, i never been in Tenom, but Keningau, hehehehe... a regular destination in 2002 - 2004 for some reason lah. Tenom was a destination that i really wanted to go. Although only for a short time... 2 days, but being at Tenom really makes me happy... walaupun di pekan dia saja. Tapi purpose of visiting, Works lah... Dunno lah... when will i got a chance to Visit Tenom... with vacation or simply jalan2 is the main purpose... I really wish to visit the Murut Cultural Village, the Lagud Seberang.. hm bila ah..

Oh... For your information.. For those of you who might not know about this lah... Sabah Credit Corporation do have a Branch or we simply called Client Centre in Tenom. So for those of you, potential borrower who currently residing in Tenom or the surrounding area... bah.. jan malu bah.. datang saja... Current borrower who have an account with us (SCC) is entitled for RM100 with one condition, introduce a new borrower to us. If the process goes well... Then... you will get RM100 credited to your bank account... Imagine if in a week you get 10 new person... Kaya oh... but don't main buyuk lah.. i've found few cases yang macam men buyuk ni... Wekekeke.. For more info about this, go to the nearest Client Centre or you may go directly to SCC HQ at Penampang. Oh, this is only entitled for Executive Loans (EL) only ah... Wah.. promo uda nie... wekekeke

Back to Tenom... The one thing people would talk about Tenom is the kopi Tenom. Coffee that come from Tenom la bah. They have the best coffee in the State. The worst thing is, i don't have time to find the best coffee shop that can offer me the best coffee in town... Pitty me... hmmm... ,what d'ya expect if you have only 2 days... and most of your time is spend at the office... maybe next time lah.. I've tested the Tenom Taufu though. Yummy... wekekeke... Teda gia chance mo mansau di pekan Tenom nie... bila dii nie.. duii..

Well coming back from Tenom (and Keningau) i've suddenly caught the 3-in-1 syndrom... yet again.,.. The Flu, The Fever and The Cough... Dunno how and where did i get this... All so sudden... The H1N1 season is not over yet and i really fear for it. Luckily my body temperature went down on Sunday. But for precautions measures i went to see the doctor juga. Because i still have the flu in my nose... kasau... Luckily no symptom at all.. Doctor offer me a medical sick leave but i decline, decide to go to work on Monday... Flu is gone... left the cough lai.. Berkesan juga ubat ni tau...

What i want to say here is... Tenom was a good place to visit... it has the peaceful town and friendly locals. I wish i could spend few days more on visiting Tenom. If you are asking for picture, sorry... i have no time visiting interesting places, let alone take picture... kamera pun nda bawa... maybe next time... My friend Roger already booked me for next year event of Pesta Kalimaran... one event that i am dying to go... Hopefully this time nothing will goes against my way, and i am sure i will be equip with a new 'picture taking gear'. So to all... Kaansayan Ra Rondom Ra Osuabon (i hope i get this right).

KaDuS Bilang:
Dui gia... hopefully my next trip tu Tenom (nda tau bila) will last a bit longer... wekekeke... TQ SCC Tenom Staff (Boss Primus, Geofrrey, Norlezah and Ronnie).

Ryan Giggs: Simply The Best

ALL logic tells you Ryan Giggs should not have been playing in this match.

Yes, men can, of course, still play professional football at 35.

But at the speed and intensity Giggs did yesterday? For the biggest club in the world? In the weekend's most watched match on the planet?

And not just play in it. Dominate the second half and win it. Not with a goal but with an unerring vision, energy and quality.

At a rough estimate, there was probably £400million worth of talent on the Old Trafford pitch. Yet it was a man snatched from City at youth level for nothing, and groomed to become a teenage star, who shone above the rest in his footballing twilight.

To put it in perspective, the man asked to handle Giggs down the flank yesterday was just two years old when the Welsh wing wizard made his Manchester United debut.

Micah Richards was left looking like a soccer toddler, as he and the rest of the Manchester City defence were bamboozled by Giggs' runs and delivery of the ball.

He put centres on Darren Fletcher's head to make it 2-1 and 3-2 for United. Time and again, he swung the ball in to Dimitar Berbatov, whose headed efforts were denied only by the brilliance of Shay Given.

That's fine. But nobody in the world in their mid-30s also still runs at pace with the ball totally under control the way Giggs does.

You still cannot second-guess him. You get a duck of the shoulder here and a shake of the hips from the Elvis worshipper there.

There was plenty to praise Giggs for in the 90 minutes. But it was what went on during injury-time that told you the lot about the player, the man. The embodiment of all that is great in what manager Alex Ferguson has built.

A mistake by Rio Ferdinand had let Craig Bellamy run half the length of the pitch to snatch what looked a draw for City on 90 minutes.

United's players were out on their feet in despair, heads bowed. They would have to settle for the point. Not Giggs. Within moments of the restart he roared towards the City box as if it was the first minute not added time. Joleon Lescott blocked his path and the ball went out for a City throw.

The visitors' tails were up, yet it was Giggs complaining they were time-wasting over taking it. He still believed the game could swing back in United's favour.

And when a ball dropped from the skies, Giggs, who had pulled inside, trapped it and played it through for Michael Owen to finish.

Game 812 for the Welshman and one of the best halves he has ever played.

Ferguson said last season he could no longer play Giggs as a rampaging winger after 18 years. He has tried to change him into more of a playmaker. Yesterday he was a mixture of both, sending defenders back on their heels and cutting inside to affect play from a deeper role.

During the lean times, as Ferguson rebuilt and Chelsea and Arsenal shared the title for three years, Giggs became the butt of the fans' frustrations.

He was even booed once when substituted in a particularly poor home game.

At that stage, five years ago, it looked like retirement beckoned. But the Welshman kept his dignity, embarked on a schedule of yoga to boost his dodgy hamstrings and watched his food and drink intake even closer than before.

Two years ago, he retired from international football.

Giggs knew the finishing-line was approaching but was determined to push it back. During the derby it seemed as far away as ever.

He has played more games than any other United player and also has more medals than any other United player.

When Cristiano Ronaldo left, people asked if he would be regarded as an all-time great.

But you have to stay around a lot longer and do a lot more before you can be spoken of in the same breath as a Best, Law or Charlton. Giggs can be, without argument.

When the sculptors are next called upon to provide lasting evidence of greatness at Old Trafford, it will be the form of Alex Ferguson immortalised in bronze. I suggest Giggs should be stood alongside him.

Two men who have epitomised all that is great about United and all that continues to be.

KaDuS Bilang:
What more can i say after seeing this game. I expected a torrid afternoon for Man. Utd and City will give a tough game. Well, what a game. United scoring on the 2nd minutes via Rooney and Tevez architect City equalizer by capitalizing a schoolboy mistakes by keeper, Ben Foster. Then the game heat up in the second half.

Ryan Giggs was for me the joint Man Of The Match with Darren Fletcher. Although Fletcher score two goals... i still see Giggs passing, runnings, thinkings was at the very best in the world... No Wonder Fergie still keep Giggsy Running strong. So they silence their neighbor. Ya... City is missing a lot of player. That shouldn't be a excuse right? United also missing Hargreaves n Neville. Ferdinand is not that match fit (that's explained his poor mistake leading to Bellamy 2nd goal and City 3rd). On top of that, the still try to cope with the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo and well.. Carlos Tevez. So No Excuse lah Sparky.

Okaylah.. Glory Glory Man. Utd!!!

Alvin M.Y. Single Update

Hi Guys... This is Alvin Mahathir Yunus or i prefer to call him Defoo, update on his First single project. I've got the single and it's in my playlist for almost a week now. I Love the song... and guess what it received a good respon from other listener too. (i'm Currently doing a parttime DJ work at Sabahan.FM. Listen to me @

Here's some update from the man himself:

"I am now updating you guys about the journey of my first baby. It is clearly not a 1 night stand, heee ^_^. It will take some time for this one. So I've already released my 1st single "Learning You" and I'm very thankful that DJ Othoe is playing it daily since it's 1st debut @ Suria Pagi Kinabalu. Othoe you're da man!! I would also like to thank you the DJ's at the online radio for also playing this song. A special thanx to Markie Kadus!! Actually the song is also available to listen at my myspace site and my amp channelv site. I can also see dbos-fm - and publishing my press release at their respective blogs which is really an honor to me. I couldn't have made it this far if it wasn't for the love and support from all my friends and family. I made it available to stream for free simply because I want to share it with you. I wrote, composed and produced the song by myself with the help from my friend aka sound engineer Peter Poninting of DEQ Studio.

So what will be my next move? I'm in the midst of recording my 2nd song, and will be released during this raya season, yeah it is a raya song. It was initially for an RTM programme, but I guess due to logistic problems they decided not to do the programme. So it's okay I'll just work on it. The sound of this raya song according to Peter is a bit jazzy and ada broadway-ish sound. The funny thing is I got the idea for the sound of this song when my kazen Azward was playing a tune by Lily Allen called "f**k y**" on youtube. So I'm not sure if my song ni direstui hahaha!! But despite the title I was actually attracted with the sound of the song so I applied it to my raya song. This song is among lagu yg paling cepat sy siapkan. I got the melody and lyrics straight away in 1 go. It was a friday around 10am. Then petang tu I went to the studio and told Peter how I visualize the song to be. Dengan sepantas kilat we did the full demo of the song, and now I think we just need 1 studio session or 2 the most to complete the recording side. Lagu raya usually hanya akan dipasang lebih kurang 1-2 weeks before raya so I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be able to finish it before that time and zoom send to radios and make it available online. Lagu raya biasa orang hantar awal but still better late sikit than never. In this song you'll get to listen to the "loosen" me. The lyrics are easy and my vocals will also be relaxed gitu. You guys just wait la ya, I've let few of my friends and family listen to it though ^_^ Klu ada rezeki and kesempatan I'll be recording the (probably DIY) video clip for this song time raya ke 3 d Kundasang nnt during our annual Suhaimin Bandaran's open house. So you might be in the video my friends hehe.

The official cover for my single "Learning You" will also be revealed soon and I'll start sending the song to other radio stations as well. As we know the Malaysian market demands malay songs, but in my album there will be malay and kadazandusun songs. Infact the raya song is in malay (campur sabahan slang siiikit la). To fully optimize Learning You, we might have an official video clip for it so if you know someone or maybe yourself, that you think can be the girl in my video do let me know by sending me a message at my Facebook wall. I'm Alvin Mahathir Yunus in FB. There might be an audition but we'll reserve that for later.

Minggu ni I'll be recording another song tapi this time it is not a lovey dovey song. It is still a ballad but the message is about life. I hope it will have some good effect on you as well.

This album is about love and life and it is dedicated to all of you. It is not finished yet but I'm visualizing it right now. I hope you are as excited as I am about this album as I am going to offer something different from what my fellow sabahan musician/artistes friends has showed you.

More updates coming soon. This is the making of Alvin MY's debut album. BBKK!!

More music at
(The songs in both my myspace and amp site are not the songs that will be included in the album except Learning You. Perubahan tertakluk pada keadaan ^_^)
