JDT knocked out

2015 AFC cup champions and last years semifinalist is out of the competition. Yesterday, they lost on away goals after the match was tied with 4-4 with Ceres Negros. Obviously, JDT was the favorite, nevertheless, the day wasn't theirs. It's similar to last 16 round that they have lost on zonal semifinals.

Benjamin Mora has no other choice but to finish as champions for premier league, after being knocked out from FA cup too.

MH128 being "hijacked"

After curse of MH370 and MH17 and now we have MH128. The flight which was suppose to depart from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur has to turn back and make emergency landing at Melbourne Airport, due to a Sri Lankan whom attempted to go into the cockpit and threatened passengers with a unidentified device (name to be powerbank).

11 of there passengers manage to catch him and put him to his knees and tied him down till the Australian police arrive. The passengers had to wait for 90 minutes in the flight. Thereafter had to get down from the flight and wait at the runway as the airport was locked.

The suspect was, either it's a bout terrorism, he is mentally disorder or he is in alcohol consumption. But now, he is released from psychiatric care. As he wanted to blow up the flight, probably, it's another curse to Malaysia airlines on their journey for revival.

Eduardo Vingada is the new coach

Finally after much deliberation and talks, national football team has a coach. Eduardo Vingada, is a Portuguese whom has worked with Carlos Quirez for Portugal national team and thereafter, coached Olympic team of Iran, Egypt and Portugal. He also coached national team of Saudi and Jordan and some clubs South Korea and Egypt.

He has 2 years timeline, which is to qualify for Asian Cup, top 100 in the world and champion of Suzuki cup. For me, this goals should serve as pathway for the country to qualify for the world cup. or at least, go for the final qualifying stage of world cup like Thailand.

Let's see if the national team can prosper under his guidance..

Chennai underground metro has kickoff

A busy city like chennai really needs a good transportation system. While they already have buses, taxi, auto-trishaw and train, yet the connectivity is still an issue. Now with the metro rail which is similar to LRT/MRT in KL, has started last year and now, they also launched the underground version.

Even sweeter for tourist, the fare is just 50Rupees per day with unlimited rides. It connects right from Airport to the Chennai central station, which is good enough for a backpacker.

More info about the metro line at this link :

They do have parking spots which can cost around 85rupees per day. Reasonable rate for a corporate person, but not for lower income people.

The weekly and monthly pass is available at discounted rates between 20 to 40%. Obviously is a good move and attracts youngsters and reduces traffic. But, it's a challenge for the illiterate people for those who lives in slums to use the system, especially, when it's cashless and need to use card (similar to KL)

Obviously Japanese firm is involved in the engineering and master plan of the system.

From tourist point of view it's a good system, and i'm sure the system is to grow for better/greater chennai.
