Arsenal's Asia Tour 2012 in Malaysia

Last Tuesday (24 July 2012), I managed to catch Arsenal playing live against the Malaysian Tigers all thanks to Red FM!!!!!

Won the tickets from a twitter contest where I tweeted that I wanted to go watch Arsenal. But a day passed by without Red FM tweeting me back, so I thought oh well, nevermind lah :p at least I tried. But the next day, I got a tweet from them and yes, I won the tickets!!!!! My heart was beating fast and I could feel my adrenaline level rising :p

So, I'm not much of a football fan, but I love myself a little football now and again, and what made this match special was that it was for le bb :) He's an Arsenal fan, so these tickets are for him!! :D

This is the view from where we first entered the yellow gates. We're at the end of the goal post. Malaysia was defending this side the first half.

The view from where we sat. Actually not bad, considering we were seated very near the field. :) Speaking of the field, I have to say, I am disappointed in the level of maintenance of the place. Whenever the players kicked the ball, tufts of grass will come up, and soil will be kicked all over the place. Really utterly deplorable :(

To my left, Malaysia supporters :) That's the green zone, I think it costs RM108..that side is full jam packed with supporters!!! too bad there was no Mexican wave :/

That's the initial score after first half :) Malaysia leading yo! it was a good goal :) and our Malaysian goalie did a superb job as well. There were quite a few shots from Arsenal on target, but he managed to either deflect it, or catch it :) Thumbs up to our Malaysian Goalie!!

Playing around with the cam during half time :p le pic of me :)

both of us together :) There are more pics of us being silly during half time, but I'm not posting it up here. You can view it at my fb page!! *click* oh and while you're at it, please like my page hor :D hahaha it's still young..barely even one month old :p

After the match, le proud bb standing tall with his Arsenal jersey :) Arsenal scored two goals at the last minute!

The Gunners getting theirs :)

All in all, I'm glad I made it to the Arsenal match :) Our Malaysian team did a superb job defending and scoring :) Being a past athlete myself, I can relate to that feeling of elation when they scored their first goal. It is most definitely a priceless moment. They did very very very well :)

Dear Harimau Malaya, GOOD JOB!!!

Final Score:
Malaysia 1, Arsenal 2
