The purple lady, was a 24sec timekeeper. the man in red was timekeeper. and the speckie guy was an assistant scorer. i was in charge of scoresheet for the first time in my life.
I cant remember their names because they were on surname basis (and because I was so lembabp when it comes to names), and i keep confusing but i do remember Ms Ong, Ms Teng, Mr Ma the PTPS, his Assistant Mr Yau and Mr Ho, our trainers Mr Cheng and Mr Tan, Mr Liew fr Chenderiang, the bubbly mr-err fr Sungkai, Ms Cheong.
There Malay guys Mr Kamarul, Alias and a lanky guy fr Slim River.
I do remember Sin Loong tho' because he sat next to me and i tot he was juz graduate when in fact he was not.

Basketball 101 (strictly for dummies)

Basic Basketball Rules ( taken from here)

Number of players

If you want to play basketball for fun you have the possibility to play on your own. But you can also play team games with either 1, 2, 3, or 5 players on each teams. Teams can be mixed with boys and girls or not. On a competition level, a team is made of 5 players playing on the court and 5 players sitting on the bench that can be used for substitution during the game period.

Each player is assigned a position when playing. This position is usually determined by the height of the player. The tallest guy usually plays “center” or “position 5”, while the medium size ones play “forwards” or “position 3 and 4”. The shortest players then play “guards” or “position 1 and 2”.

A player scores when he manage to put the ball into the basket from above. Scoring a basket increases the team score by 3, 2 or one point. If the player successfully shoots from outside of the 3 points line, the basket is worth 3 points, other wise it is worth 2 points. It is also possible to score one point when shooting from the free throw line, after a foul for instance.

A violation occurs when the player infracts the rules of Basketball. A violation results in the awarding of the ball to the opponents. It happens when the player takes more than 2 steps without bouncing the ball on the floor. This is called Traveling. An other violations is when a player stops dribbling and then starts dribbling again or bounces the ball with its two hands at once. We call this a double Dribble. You can also commit a violation if you twist your hand , when in contact with the ball, pass the vertical. This is called Carry, as the hand must always remain on the top of the ball.

A foul is an illegal action that can commit a player from one team to a player from the adverse team. Basketball is generally said a non-contact game. If, in particular occasion this is not respected, a foul is committed. There are two types of fouls. The first ones are called defensive fouls. They occur when the offensive player is being fouled by the defender. Defenders should not block, push, trip, strike or hold the player in possession of the ball. The second ones are the offensive fouls. For example a player in offense commits an offensive foul when charging into a stationary defender

"kurang berkesempatan, sibuk sikit" he answered sweetly. yeah rite like i dunno u r plain lazy.
he asked me abt st wic is really none of my business.
"Our fren here is the best man 2 answer that. he's an expert" i pointed to my klik
Poyo betul... buat la homework sket sblm tanya soklan..

Anecdotes 2
"Sy x nak makan" said her..
"Mkn la sikit.. what is it dis time?" d problem with woman in love is dis... mood swings..
"she said he has another woman" ayat dia lain tp sy translate and simplified it..
"she who?" i knew the he but she.. who? no idea.
"d usual, she said bla bla bla..." well i don wanna know really. that she is really a plain psycho.
"crap!!! don believe her. she's a big fat liar" thats colourful but i was damn pissed off.
"but..." nak melawan lagi dia ni..
"no buts... ask him if u don believe me"... it was d global warming syndrome i guess..
after few creeping hours (wic seems like ages).. she came back to me..
"saya kena marah. he said he don wan 2 hear that" i gave her my infamous told-u-so look
"i don believe it.. how could her.. x sangka.. mcm awin la dia".. she lamented...
"awin who?" never heard of any Awin.
"Awin.. Awin kawan kakak saya tu.. Awin selalu mcm tu.. dia cakap mcm-macam padahal hal tu x betul. lepas tu dia buat muka x bersalah je. Berani dia reka cerita lepas tu buat macam x ada apa2. Ya Allah saya ingatkan Awin je yg buat macam tu.." Dia terus bercakap.. Saya terus makan...
"silly of u... " x tau sapa yg kena tipu, tapi i was d one yg terlebih hangin...
oh.. that Awin.. i knew her... a very gila-gila bahasa one.
but at least she's still young and naive..
this particular person...she's much older than me. hopefully Allah bukakan pintu hati dia supaya jangan diulang perangai buruk tu. Nothing wrong with being big and fat..
but being big fat liar is something else.
