The World Cup craze cheap poe currency

  • The World Cup craze has Putri Zanina recalling her own experiencesIT’S still THE time to talk about football. After all, world-class cheap poe currency players are still blazing the field in far away Brazil. I also have my fair share of World Cup glory... ahem! Off field, of course.The year was 1994. The United States was host. The NST then produced its first ever World Cup supplementary magazine and yours truly was one of those helming it.

     

    It was a sell-out with nearly 50,000 copies sold.My former boss, veteran journalist Philip Mathews, pulled quite a coup in getting the towering Fifa personality, Sepp Blatter, then the international football governing body’s secretary general (today its president), to launch the magazine.Together we staged an event that turned the then famous Nirwana Ballroom of the Hilton Kuala Lumpur into a one-action station, attracting the country’s who’s who in football.

     

    That success later led to the production of the country’s first ever English-language football magazine, simply called Football. It was a monthly.The launch was something to remember, too, amidst the thundering cheers of football fans minutes before the kick-off of the final Malaysia Cup game between arch rivals Selangor and Pahang at Shah Alam Stadium. I was in the thick of it all, giving the cue for the momentous launch.The promotion of the magazine later saw us organising a beach soccer tournament in Terengganu.

     

    We had lots of fun, and more than doubled our target of participating teams.In fact, the tournament became so huge that it earned a spot in the Malaysia Book Of Records as the country’s biggest beach soccer tournament then.The long, white sandy poe market stretch of Pantai Batu Buruk turned into one huge soccer carnival with more than 100 teams taking part.Next began my football “journey” to international territory. And it involved Manchester United, no less.
