I communicated with Rio Ferdinand of Manchester United. Please don’t die of jealousy.

Spread the love

All of you might not have noticed or might not have given a damn about Azman’s blog “Manchester United Fan in Malaysia” being ranked pretty high in the blogosphere and especially among the blogs in its genre.  The rank has been giving us huge advantages and benefits, those who are earning money through their blogs will definitely understand.

Ever since the news of Manchester United coming to Malaysia as a part of the Asia Tour 2009, we have been pretty busy. Collaboration deals has doubled and sponsors came pouring in. In conjunction with the ManUtd Asia Tour 2009 alone, we had sponsors from many renowned brands from beverages, to TV channels to sportswear to home décor and so much more.

The experience that we had last Friday was one of the best experiences we have had ever as Manchester United fans. And who would ever knew? We got to experience it just because we are  bloggers!

Last Friday, FOUR MANCHESTER UNITED PLAYERS LOOKED AT ME IN THE EYES AND MY DONGGA HEAD! I SHOOT TWO QUESTIONS ESPECIALLY TO RIO FERDINAND! Go ahead and call me a biyatch!! I AM SO BOASTING about it! Hahahha

We had been invited to NIKE MALAYSIA – MANCHESTER UNITED ASIA TOUR 2009 media conference held in conjunction of NIKE5 Challenge finale by NIKE MALAYSIA. This maybe nothing for some of you but hey it was really cool for us, ok? Like why would anybody wanna invite this design engineer geek and his sarcastic blogger wife (that’s very kampong hanya tuhan membalas) to cover such an exclusive Media Conference with the hottest football stars? NIKE did, thanks guys for acknowledging BLOGS AS EMERGING NEW POWERFUL MEDIA! Hooray!

So off we went, Azman and I with our friend Nize seated among other members of the media (and other bloggers too)  waiting for the players to make an appearance. In front of me were guys from TV3 and ESPN. Beside me was another journalist from Malay Mail and behind me BERNAMA. When the BERNAMA reporter asked Nize which newspaper he was from, all three of us well, didn’t really know what to answer. Hahaha! As a nature of work at the office, I had been organizing many-many media conferences for my bosses, the Minister and ever Prime Minister but when it comes to me becoming THE REPORTER, I was excited. Hehe.

After the long wait finally Rio Ferdinand, Fletcher, Gibson and Nani came out followed with loud applause. As they open the floor for about 4-5 questions only, I was so nervous because I MUST ASK A QUESTION!

I DID NOT COME ALL THE WAY JUST TO WATCH RIO FERDINAND’S AMAZING NOSTRILS THE PLAYERS’ HOT BODIES IN PERSON WITHOUT ASKING QUESTION. THIS IS DIYANA YANG YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT! I AM THE TALKING EXPERT! I WANTED TO SCREAM – GIMME THAT FREAKING MICROPHONE, I WANT TO ASK THAT FREAKING QUESTION!!

Then I took a deep breath and calm down.

And when the last question opportunity came I JUMPED UP and shoot a question to the M.U player. Some other guy before me had asked Nani what he feels about visiting Malaysia for the first time and I thought , OMG! That question is so lame! If only Ronaldo was with M.U, I really wanted to ask why did Paris Hilton dumped him but now that he was no longer with M.U I had to think of something else. Hahaha.

Ladies and gentlemen, fans of Manchester United, kindly contain your jealousy while you watch me communicate with THE RIO FERDINAND in this video.

“….my question is for Rio. I am following RealRioFerdinand on Twitter and my question is…. Is that really you? And what is your secret for having more (Twitter) followers than Wayne rooney?”

Rio answered that he doesn’t do Twitter and to find him please go to rioferdinand.com

That’s me in black questioning, Adam C was the emcee of the event

Amusing question eh? How dare you compare Ferdinand with Rooney?

It is now confirmed that RIOFERDINAND on Twitter is not the real Rio Ferdinand. Diyana Yang reporting for manutd.diyanazman.com. Now back to Sri Pentas. Hahahaha!!!
