SUBANG JAYA: There were laughter, running, jumping and of course, lots of sweat during the inaugural USJRA-NST Streets Family Day futsal and basketball challenge.

Players from 48 teams warming up for the three-on-three basketball challenge.

Nineteen teams from USJ competed in the futsal under-18 and under-15 categories.

Held at the MPSJ field, the event saw over 60 teams participating in the futsal under-18, futsal under-15, basketball under-18 and under-15 events.

Youths in jerseys of yellow, orange, blue and green pitted their skills against each other on the futsal turf, while on the other side of the track, groups of three were battling it out at the basketball challenge.

The event kicked off at 10am and ended at 5pm, with 19 teams competing in the futsal category, while 48 teams took part in the 3-On-3 basketball challenge.

There were a lot of cheers when Black Mamba, the under-18 futsal team, emerged victorious with a I-0 win over rival Sarjana Kalumpang. Seafield Plus came out third.

Black Mamba captain Muhd Fadzlie Rosalie, 17, said it was sheer determination and a bit of luck that got them through to the final.

"It was an exciting final. We got lucky in the last few minutes as T. Surain Raaj scored the wining goal. He was assisted by Nazmi Ahmad Fadzil. The minute the ball hit the back of the net, it was game over for Sarjana Kalumpang," he said.

Meanwhile, in the under-15 futsal tournament, SJYC Orange beat SJYC Blue to emerge champion. Third place went to Las Caupe.

SJYC Orange captain Abdul Muhaimin Tuan Hassan, 14, said that SJYC Blue was a tough team to play against, but it was their strategy that won the game.

"They were fast and strong, but we had our strategy planned out from the start. That was how we won," he said.

Teammate Daniel Othman, 15, said he had a great time at the event. "It was so much fun coming out here today. We got to meet a lot of friends and participate in a huge event like this," he said.

The highlight of the day was the celebrity futsal match that saw the New Straits Times, ntv7, MPSJ and FlyFm teams pit their skills against one another in an elimination match.

New Straits Times was the first to exit the celebrity game after losing 1-0 to MPSJ. In the second round, FlyFm drew with ntv7. They teamed up and went on to play MPSJ in the final.

The final got off to a good start, but it was clear that MPSJ dominated the game. They were skillful and had more possession of the ball. But that did not stop FlyFm and ntv7 from scoring two goals.

Within minutes MPSJ was back in the game by levelling the score.

However, in the last few seconds, MPSJ scored the winning goal with much flair. The game ended 3-2.

Flyfm announcer Prem Shanker said the MPSJ team was skilful. "Those guys had a lot more skills than us. The first goal they scored was done with much style," he said.

Prem said he and the FlyFm team had a ball of a time and was looking forward to more Streets event. "This is a fantastic event. The best part was that we got to meet and mingle with the USJ community," he said.

Over at the 3-On-3 basketball challenge, 48 teams fought hard for a place in the final. USJ 11/3 won first place in the under-15 boys category, followed by SJBA 2 in second place and USJ 12Y in third.

USJ 11/3 captain Ivan Yeap Chen Yuan, 15, said the basketball event was a good way of fostering ties in the community.

"It was an exciting final and teamwork was the key to our success," he said.

Yeap said that despite the hot weather, they had great fun.

"We were surprised to win as we had very little practice. The first few games were easy, but as we progressed to the final, the games got tougher. It was our skills on the courts that won the game," he said.

Over at the under-18 boys basketball challenge, team USJ 11/3 was the victor, followed by USJ 3B in second place and SJB A in third.

Team USJ 11/3 captain Kuek Yuen Sam, 18, said USJ B was a tough team to play against. "They were good and had skills, but by playing more defensively and counter attacking, we managed to beat them," he said.

Meanwhile, in the under-18 women's basketball challenge, team 3 Blind Mice won first place, followed by USJ 11/3 and USJC 12 A in second and third place respectively .

3 Blind Mice captain Cherish Moy Su-Grace, 16, said her team never expected to be champion.

"We were really surprised to win first place. There were so many other better teams," she said.

Inspiration for you in these difficult times!

Dear Residents,

This is an inspirational "Handbook" send to us by Mike - thought I'd share it with all of you in these difficult times. It does have a lot of relevance to our everyday lives so do read on:



1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
4. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.
5. Make time for prayer.
6. Play more games.
7. Read more books than you did in 2008.
8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
9 Sleep for 7 hours.
10. Take a 10-30 minutes walk every day. And while you walk, smile.


11. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
12. Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
13. Don't over do. Keep your limits.
14. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
15. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
16. Dream more while you are awake.
17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
18. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
20. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
22. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
23. Smile and laugh more.
24. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.


25. Call your family often.
26. Each day give something good to others.
27. Forgive everyone for everything.
28. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.
29. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
30. What other people think of you is none of your business.
31. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.


32. Do the right thing!
33. Always speak the truth even if it leads to your death.
34. GOD heals everything.
35. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
37. The best is yet to come.
38. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.
39. Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.

Hope you get some inspiration from this!

First Official Meeting for Persatuan Penduduk USJ 11/3

The first AGM was held at the auditorium in MPSJ this morning, March 21, 2009 of which there were some 80 residents present including all the pro-tem committee members.

It was officiated by our Councillor for Zone 3, Y Bhg. Encik Ismail Kamal. Also present was Tuan Amir, Inspector from the USJ 8 police station.

Residents began to gather in the auditorium area around 9:30 am.

The meeting started at 10:00 am with our pro-tem Chairman. Mr. Ng Peng Hin, giving his opening speech. In his speech, he expressed his appreciation and thanked the support of each and every one of the pro-tem committee members who has worked diligently to have this association set up formally and to make the security project a success in such a short time. He was confident that it will only grow in strength from here on.

Then it was followed a speech by Y. Bhg. Encik Ismail Kamal. He congratulated the Pro-tem committee members for having the Association registered successfully with the ROS which will strengthen the status of the Association and also will bring a lot of benefits to the residents in the area. He also touched on the vacant land which was privately owned on the playground and appealed to the residents to allow the development of some private bungalows.

He had objected to the building of commercial property on that piece of land. He also expressed his hope that while the security was now carried out by the association, he hoped that the police will strengthen their presence in the area to prevent crime and to provide additional security to the area. With that said, he officiated the opening of the meeting.

After that, both our special guest was presented with a token of appreciation from our Chairman and our Vice Chairman. Light refreshment followed after the formalities.

The formal meeting commenced at 11:00 am after the light refreshment. The office bearers of pro-tem committee gave their respective reports after that. There were some suggestions and queries as to how the moneys were spent and also going forward, some suggestion on how to make improve the reporting in the future. With that, the pro-tem committee was officially dissolved.

Mr. Jeffrey Khoo was appointed the temporary chairman to carry out the formalities.

The entire pro-tem committee, except our special committee member, Mr. K.L. Wong who has moved to USJ 16, our Street Leader for 3L, Mr. Leong and our Treasurer, Mr. Jeffrey Khoo did not stand for the re-election. All the pro-tem committee members and office bearers were then voted in unanimously by all who were present.

The Treasurer post is now taken over by Mr. Chan who was the Vice-Treasurer before while his Vice-Treasurer’s post is now held by a new member, Encik Khairuddin. Mr. Leong’s position is now taken over by a member from 3L, Mr. Murali. We have also appointed 2 auditors to check on the accounts, Mr. Selva and Mr. Vincent. The USJ 11/3 Residents Association welcomes all of them into the Committee.

Mr. Jeffrey Khoo who has relinquished his Treasurer position due to personal reasons has now been appointed as Advisor to the Association.

The entire Committee then took their respective place on stage and they introduced themselves to the residents who were present. Mr. Ng, the Chairman of the 11/3 Resident’s Association thanked all the new committee for their commitment and time and look forward to the future plans.

He said now that our Resident Association is formally registered, it will give us a lot of clout to get things done as we will be able to speak with one voice. It has also given the Association a legal standing which will make accountability an important part of running the Association.

He also expressed special thanks to Y. Bhg Dato Faridah, our Committee member who had played a pivotal role in giving us the advise and getting our Association approved in 6 months while a lot of other Association took many years to process with little or no results. He also expressed his thanks to our ADUN, who was not present, YB Hannah Yeoh who had been very supportive of our initiative from the very beginning and has given her support in the form of a letter of recommendation to the ROS.

He then highlighted the need to hasten the building of the perimeter fence and had asked for approval for a budget of RM50,000 to build the fence which saw unanimous support from all who were present. With the fence built, he said, plans will be made to reduce the number of guards and therefore the subsequent running cost of our security in the future. He also pointed out the the entrance at 3A and 3P will be closed permanently.

He also urged other members to come forward and offer their services as sub-committee who can help run more social activities in the future. He also highlighted the indiscriminate disposal of garden waste and old furniture which were strewn over the road shoulders around the playground which should stop. Residents should wait for the Alam Flora truck to collect the waste at the designated times rather than just leave the unwanted items and garden waste in front of other residents homes. This is not only an eyesore but also an inconsiderate practice.

He also highlighted the need to hasten the collection of our subscription which has slowed down somewhat. He hope it will improve in the coming weeks as the funds were important for the Committee to carry out their responsibilities.

With those points discussed, the meeting was adjourned at 12 pm.

It is hard to imagine a small mosquito can play havoc to your life. But this is the thing, we should not under estimate the force of this tiny creature and the deadly virus it may carry. This is a vector driven disease and should be taken as a serious threat to our everyday lives.

Well, I had it again, dengue that is, just last week! This time, I had to stay in hospital for more than 4 days. The first time was in 2005 when my wife and I got bitten by the Aedes mosquito. We were both hospitalised. It was very bad then as I had bleeding gums, etc. This was something I totally did not expect to get again. Luckily this time it was less vicious compared to the last time. I am out of the hospital recovering but not fully yet.

For your information, there were already 3 known reported cases in the area facing the playground along USJ 11/3 in the past few weeks. It is a real threat not be taken lightly.

We have to do our part if we want to avoid getting dengue. We should and must keep our house surrounding clean. Get rid of all containers that may hold water or turn it upside down. It will only take a minute to do that.

So, please do your part, spray the surrounding area in the evenings with water based aerosol. Get rid of any larvae by pouring it on the main road or on dry ground so that the larvae does not get a chance to survive. DO NOT pour it into the drain as the larvae will still survive.

Report any clogged drains and areas that may need the authority's help. All these steps will go a long way to ensuring we live in a safe environment.

Remember to keep your family safe.
