Here are some of their pictures taken recently:-
The line judge was called by the umpire to explain the call and when she did, the Chief Judges of the tournament were called in.
Serena was given a point penalty, hence, Clijsters won the match.
A night full of drama at the Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Serena was given the point penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. This was the first time I have seen such a player (Clijsters) get a place in a Grand Slam final for unsportsmanlike conduct of the opposition player (Williams). I hope this incident serves as a lesson to all sportsmen and women to be good role models on and off the court.
So stay cool on the field of play everyone :)

Do watch the video below:
After the games, I got back, had another round of the rice and chicken curry. Bought some ice-cream back. Tasha and I have this love affair with the McDonald's Cornetto Sundae. Good stuff ya'll. Try it - chocolate though, not the strawberry one. After dinner, had ice-cream and then watched some tele. I wanted to catch the ManUtd v Spurs game, but I doubt I'll be able to stay awake. I need to be up in the morning tomorrow as Tasha and I are driving Appa and Amma to Slim River - one of my dad's episcopal visits. They're driving to the Petronas here in Sg.Besi and then, I'm driving them to S.River. It will be a nice trip for sure as it will be the first time Appa will be going back to his place of birth and his 'kampung' as a Bishop. After the service, I'll be driving them straight to Melaka. Shobs and Balla are in Melaka, so they'll be dropping us off at KL on their way back.
Once we get back, it will already be time to get ready for a new week ahead. Wish you all a pleasant weekend and more to come next week.
I hope to take some picture in Slim River and I'll post it once I get back.
God bless you all.

I was reading through the blog of one of my closest buddies (in fact he was also one of my best man) - Vixx. Vixx and I go a long way back. We've been very close - almost family, but only more genuine ;) He had written a post on racism - his unfortunate experiences. I think everyone here in Malaysia must read it. You need to know what is happening here in Malaysia - sadly.

I was on the US Open site and I came across one of the most interesting pictures ever. The security officers at the tournament have their respective K9 officers as well. This fellow is so cute. He even had a security tag made for him. Interesting to see how detailed security is in such a major tournament.

I was reading an article on how to eat healthy. I have this problem. I want to eat healthy, but I never knew how to do so without giving up on my favourite desserts (well, some of them at least). Here is how. I have managed to compile the list below based on our own diet. I want to eat healthy - especially with my family having a long history of diabetes and high blood pressure. So here goes:-
Eat Enough Calories But Not Too Many
Maintain a balance between your calorie intake and calorie expenditure—that is, don't eat more food than your body uses. The average recommended daily allowance is 2,000 calories, but this depends on your age, sex, height, weight, and physical activity.
Eat A Wide Variety Of Foods
Healthy eating is an opportunity to expand your range of choices by trying foods—especially vegetables, whole grains, or fruits—that you don't normally eat.
Keep Portions Moderate
Especially, high-calorie foods. In recent years serving sizes have ballooned, particularly in restaurants. Choose a starter instead of an entrée, split a dish with a friend, and don’t order supersized anything.
Eat Plenty Of Fruits, Vegetables, Grains, And Legumes
Foods high in complex carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, low in fat, and free of cholesterol. Try to get fresh, local produce.
Drink More Water
Our bodies are about 75% water. It is a vital part of a healthy diet. Water helps flush our systems, especially the kidneys and bladder, of waste products and toxins. A majority of Malaysians go through life dehydrated – and to make matters worse, we don’t even know it. So please drink plenty of water.
Limit Sugary Foods, Salt, & Refined-Grain Products
Sugar is added to a vast array of foods. In a year, just one daily 12-ounce can of soda (160 calories) can increase your weight by 16 pounds. See suggestions below for limiting salt and substituting whole grains for refined grains.
Don’t Be The Food Police
You can enjoy your favorite sweets and fried foods in moderation, as long as they are an occasional part of your overall healthy diet. Food is a great source of pleasure, and pleasure is good for the heart – even if those French fries aren’t! I know of some friends who avoid ‘sin’ food at all cost. Well, that is not the way to do it. It is fine to have them once in a while.
A healthy diet improves your energy and feelings of well-being while reducing your risk of many diseases. Adding regular physical activity and exercise will make any healthy eating plan work even better. Yup, hence, the re-launching of the tennis sessions (for me at least) and the futsal sessions (next week onwards). Yes, Xavier, I know, I will come for the tennis sessions from now on.
