Between Ajax And Football

With all the World Cupmania in every crook and crany of the world, it is not surprising that Ilham is no exceptions. But to give him credits, he had been interested in football long before that. We had to buy his football shoe months ago, even knowing that he would only be able to use it when the football lesson starts at the end of April. He even managed to convince his father to buy him the new Ajax away shirt and shorts complete with Ajax socks. The deal was, no buying of any toys for three months! He was very excited because he thought it was a good deal. It was, until he realised that he would not get any birthday presents from us !! ha...ha...ha...


It is a wonder where he gets his interest from. I am not a football fan, though I do know of a few international players. I recall taking a liking (favourite seems a bit too much) to some like Gary Linekar, Zinedan Zidane, Michael Ballack, Ronaldo, David Beckham and the latest one, Luis Suarez. I vaguely remember what teams they were(are) playing for, but they all have something in common, they are cute.....

As for my DH, he is not only "kaki bangku" he never ever watched any games at all !!


I suppose Ilham gets his interest from his school friends. Sometimes he would come back and told me bits and pieces of football news/players. Europeans are kind of crazy when it comes to football, so naturally their kids will have similar interests.


Ilham's favourite team is Ajax-the most famous team in the Netherlands. His favourite player is Luis Suarez, the captain. We sometimes would go to the Ajax stadium, not to watch a game... just visit the Ajax shop. The stadium is not very far from our house. When we have visitors from Malaysia, we would bring them to the stadium and they would inevitably buy Ajax souvenirs from the shop...

Bergaya di luar kedai.... Tak sabar nak cuba pakai baju baru...




Macam mana? Ada gaya jadi professional player?


His hopes for the World Cup ? To see The Netherlands winning.....


As for me, this is my dream player (at the moment....)

Ilham looks handsomelah..in that football jersey. Anak I pun minat bola wpun ayahnya tgok bola pun once in a blue moon. I used to send him 4 football training during weekend but now no more..Hubby suka beli jersey for my son. We don support any team in particular tapi suka beli jersey yg cantik. Just bought jersey fake England kat Rantau Pjg. Jersey Belanda warna oren kan?. I suka!

TK,

Ilham now has football lesson every Monday, he loves it.

Di sini tak ada fake jersey (tak pernah jumpa lagila..), jadi terpaksa beli ori. Kalau kat Padang Besar, sure kami kebas banyak helai, siap letak nama lagi ha..ha..

Memang seronok tengok Belanda lawan, semuanya oren, termasuk penyokong. The seas of orange !!
