Bersatu Games at Dunedine 2006



Bersatu Games 3-7 July..How brilliant it was. I agree with the fact that it was the best Bersatu Games compared to last year's Bersatu in Auckland. Not in term of numbers of medals we won, but the spirit and the bonding that were built during the Bersatu that made the games memorable.

4 medals; 2 bronzes contributed by handball and basketball teams, 1 silver by takraw team, and 1 solo silver medal won by Muiz in ping pong..Well, the achievement is something that can be proud of considering the fact that Petsoc ( Petronas Students of Canterbury ) was one of the smallest contingent in the Bersatu.

I don't really know what had happened to Muiz throughout the pingpong games because i didnt see him playing at all.Apology to you Muiz ( i am a bad sport officer !) However he was really eager to play. I remember he asked me to find other person to play basketball because the one of the pingpong matches was clashed with the basketball schedule..Luckily we could fix the timetable with the officials and walla! he can play basketball at that time! ( i cant imagine playing basketball without muiz..God saved me!) Well he did really well and deserved credits.

I reckon, one of the biggest highlights during the Bersatu was the basketball match for 3rd and 4th standings..we played against UMSA ( dont know the full words but it is an Auckland Malaysian club ) we had already defeated them in group stage but unfortunately we had to face them again after failing to win against CMSA ( Canterbury Malaysian Student Association..do i got it rite?..) in the semi. It was supposed to be an easy game as we had already defeated them before but u know..shit happens and it really does! We led all the way until first half. Somehow my 3 point-shoots were on fire! I couldnt remember how many three-point shots but i was really enjoying that moment ( it brought back the memories of the school days..huhu) Shit happened and for some reasons we had a terrible foul trouble..which had cost our two stars to be fouled out..Sam and Razwi, they did really well and the fouls commited were good fouls. That was the moment where the rising stars like Aiman and Anas came in to rescue the situation and the best part was they never played competitive basketball before!! yeah, they did a brilliant job though. Having an extra time ( the first extra time in Bersatu basketball history! i think laaa..hehe), we kept our composure to the max and defended aggresively. Credits to all supporters who brought the spirit in and syukurrrr because we won dramatically..i can't describe how ecstatic we were after winning (especially me,well u know me aiye!)

i didnt realize that i could play handball really well ( i mean for Bersatu level..) until i tried the first handball game of my life.. We didnt train at all, we didnt have any strategies, we didnt have good techniques, but we had two things...the spirit and endurance! I do really want to apologize to Abu Hurairah (Otago hero)..he guarded me really tightly like he was playing basketball with me. He never wanted me to move at all!! He stood in front of me trying to block any movement.He did it really well though.However, u know that in handball, the goalpost is in front of you and u had to throw the ball forward. Unfortunately, his presence in front of me had cost him hard blows on his face. Sorry for the broken glasses and knock on your face..That was how the game work dude and i cant help it anymore..huhu (guilty yet happy) After all, handball games were harsh yet brilliant and i want to play it again in the future.My hands work well with balls...hehe

Ok now, we turn to Sepak Takraw, the one that had won silver medals. I didnt watch the preliminary matches as i was competing in golf. I heard that the team did really well and hailed by everyone who watched. Even the massive cheer from the host, Otago failed to louse up their concentration and composure."EEEEYYYAAAAHHH!!" was the cheer. Sounded annoying at the first place but eventualy turned into a funny cheer after a while. I reckon, at the Bersatu level, u dont have to be good in so-called overhead kick. As long as u could head the ball well and juggle the ball steadily, u won't be having any problem to kick your opponent's arse. Besides that, strategy is vital; aiming for the weakest link, good ball positioning etc etc ...i m not good in this game though. Again, shit happened.Blame Curry Box Restaurant for the failure to perform in the final. What i heard was that, they had a massive buffet lunch before the final. Hehe..$10 for buffet lunch is really worthy!! So, they used that chance to stuffed everything inside the stomach..u cannot get this bargain in CHCH yo! Nuff said, they lost in the final..( the mystery of Curry Box remains...)

I played golf during Bersatu. That was the first experience of playing golf at golf course..Before this i tried driving range and it was a whole lot easier as u dont really have to direct your ball to a particular position.Hit, hit and hit..that's all what i do in the driving range. I thought i could handle the game well, but it wasnt going as planned. I screwed up most of my strokes... Actually i did not think of winning. For me at that time, when someone said "Gud shot alip!", that was like a gold medal for me. What do u expect when u never try the real game before? hehe..by the way, it was really fun to have a kickstart of golfing career as i might need to play golf in the future, maybe playing with my father or entertaining client..
