On Friday last, members of the small Malaysian community here in Guyana came together to celebrate Merdeka Day at the Sarawak Restaurant in Queenstown, Georgetown.Malaysians, their family and friends, enjoyed an evening of fun, food, and festivities, wining and dining on Malaysian favourites.The event was the brainchild of Malaysian Elaine Bong, owner of the Sarawak Restaurant. Knowing of Malaysians working both in the interior regions of Guyana and some in the capital, Georgetown, she reached out to a fellow Malaysian, long-term resident in Guyana, Kala Seegopaul, and the idea was brought to life. A committee was set up among a few of the Malaysians in the Georgetown area and tasks were delegated accordingly.Bong had remarked that the main objective of the event was to bring all the Malaysians here together and establish a network, seeing as they were all so far from home.The 40-odd crowd of Malaysians and their families and friends who participatedThe small Malaysian community in Guyana at the celebrations on Friday eveningwas treated to a special lion dance performance, before the national anthem was sung and the feasting commenced. After dinner, anecdotes on adjusting to life in Guyana were exchanged in the cozy restaurant over desserts and drinks.Seegopaul who has lived in Guyana for the past 40 years said being so far away from home was no easy feat and was delighted to know there were so many Malaysians residing here.Dr Sasha Gomez, a Malaysian working with the Health Ministry, hopes the event would be the beginning of more frequent gatherings of the Malaysian community in Guyana.Though small in number, Malaysians residing in Guyana are involved in various sectors such as healthcare, private business owners, the services sector, working with timber and gold mining companies, and in the oil and gas field among others.
He scored both goals in Nigeria’s group stage 3-2 defeat to Argentina in Porto Alegre, Brazil, four years ago and is relishing the chance to do it again.But this time he hopes it will knock out the South Americans.“I think scoring against Argentina isn’t that difficult for me,” he smiled after his man-of-the-match performance in Volgograd. “We know the importance of the game. It’s do or die.”The African side will secure a spot in the knockout stage alongside Croatia if they beat Argentina.A draw would be enough to eliminate the Argentines but would leave Nigeria’s fate resting on the outcome of Iceland’s game against Croatia which kicks off at the same time.Musa also scored twice for Leicester in a 4-2 pre-season friendly defeat against Messi-inspired Barcelona two years ago and said he always scores when up against the Argentine superstar.“I can remember four years ago when Messi played in Brazil I scored two goals,” he recalled.“And when I transferred to Leicester I played against Barcelona and he’s on the pitch and I scored another two goals.“So I think next game anything can happen — possibly I’m going to score another two goals,” he laughed.– Fighting spirit –Nigeria coach Gerhot Rohr was full of praise for his side, who are the youngest at this World Cup, especially the way they came out firing in the second half after Iceland put them under the pump in the first 45 minutes.“What I like in my young team is humility, solidarity and fighting spirit. I thought before this World Cup we were here to learn,” said the German.“I think this team will be ready in 2022 and this World Cup is coming early, but we have a good chance to win against Argentina.”Musa, who came into the starting line-up in place of Alex Iwobi, announced himself in magnificent style with two of the goals of the tournament.Musa’s sweetly struck half-volley fired Nigeria into the lead just after half-time before he added a second with 15 minutes to go to make the game safe.Iceland got a lifeline in the 82nd minute with a VAR-awarded penalty but dead-ball specialist Gylfi Sigurdsson blazed over the bar.With Croatia heading the group on six points Nigeria knew a second defeat would mean elimination but now qualification is in their own hands.Iceland started brightest but Nigeria, with captain John Obi Mikel sitting deeper in midfield than the defeat against Croatia, slowly worked their way into the game as Victor Moses posed a constant threat on the right flank.Rohr brought on wing-back Tyronne Ebuehi for Bryan Idowu at the start of the second half and Nigeria came out full of running.The tireless Moses was released down the right and his cross was met by Musa who teed up the ball deftly with the outside of his right foot before unleashing an unstoppable half-volley into the roof of the net.Musa made the game safe with a breathless second, controlling a long ball without breaking stride, beating Kari Arnason then rounding Halldorsson before powering his shot past two covering defenders on the line.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Ahmed Musa is the first Nigerian to score at two World CupsVOLGOGRAD, Russia, June 22 – Deadly Ahmed Musa struck two stunning goals to sink Iceland 2-0 on Friday and then promised to do the same to Lionel Messi’s Argentina in Tuesday’s Group D showdown.The Leicester City striker, currently on loan at CSKA Moscow, became the first Nigerian to score at two World Cups as the Super Eagles secured a crucial win over Iceland, who missed a penalty.
It is a measure of the London club’s progress under new boss Lampard, who has had to rely on youth due to a transfer embargo, that losing to a side that won the domestic treble last season is considered a disappointment.“Experiences like this are great for them,” said Lampard. “They have to take them on the chin in terms of the defeat but also realise these are the kinds of levels we want to get to.“The feeling in the dressing room — it looked like they are very disappointed. They expect a lot of themselves, so I think we will take an amount of confidence.“Where we want to get to means we might come here and win (in future) and it might mean we can win titles, and win going forward, so I like seeing them disappointed.“I think that that just shows the next question is the reaction we have.”Chelsea had gone into the game above City in the table and they took an early lead through N’Golo Kante before goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez won it for the hosts.Lampard admits his side are probably exceeding expectations this term but has warned against complacency.The former Chelsea and England midfielder said: “It is hard to explain my expectation at the start of the season.“Until you have worked daily with the players, until you bring players who were playing in the Championship last season and younger players here, you don’t know exactly how it is going to drop and how it ends up.“So, (I’m) really happy with a lot of our stuff this season, so maybe that means we are slightly ahead of the curve.“But in football the curve will go downhill very fast if you don’t keep on yourself and take a lot of the lessons from Saturday and take them on moving forward.”0Shares0000(Visited 18 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chelsea manager Frank Lampard © AFP / Paul ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 25 – Frank Lampard believes he will learn a lot about his young Chelsea side from how they react to their defeat at Manchester City.Chelsea’s six-game winning run came to an end as they were beaten 2-1 by the Premier League champions at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Glenveagh Castle turned blue for Autism Day. Pic by Geraldine Diver.Yesterday was world autism awareness day. The Autism Family Support Group ltd. organised a family fun day in Glenveagh national park where hundreds of people turned up to raise autism awareness.It has now become a tradition all over the world to light iconic buildings blue to raise autism awareness. Buildings like the Sydney opera house, Eiffel Tower. So the group organised a number of buildings in Letterkenny to go blue over the last number of years eg St Eunans Cathedral, Pole Star Roundabout.These have gone blue again this year but we decided to look outside Letterkenny and as far as we are aware no other heritage site in Ireland has gone blue so we approached Glenveagh and they agreed to light the castle up blue.We had a number of people out in Glenveagh last night at 10pm to see the castle lit up blue. A wonderful sight for all involved.GLENVEAGH CASTLE TURNS BLUE FOR AUTISM DAY was last modified: April 3rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
