McMenemy and Rahma Azhari

Two days have passed since the Indonesian football team beats the Philippines a.k.a Azkals 1-0 in the Semi Final of the Asean Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Tournament last Sunday, but the news media in both countries are still discussing about match.

While our media focused on final matches versus Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur on 26 December, and Jakarta on 29 December, Filipino media discussed about their team's failure, and relationship between their British coach Simon McMenemy and Indonesian actress Rahma Azhari after the match in Jakarta                  

Please find below an article quoted from the Filipino media ABS-CBN News.

MANILA, Philippines – Who is Rahma Azhari?
Google her name and head to the images section. Satisfied?
Now imagine her in the arms of the Philippine Azkals’ British coach Simon McMenemy.
Wait, don’t imagine anymore. 
Azhari has already uploaded a photo of her and McMenemy together during a party in Jakarta. 
“Hhhmm goodbye simon, have a nice trip back to manila xoxo,” the Indonesian actress said in her Twitter account

The Jakarta Post believes that the pictures were taken at a nightclub in Jakarta after the Azkals’ AFF Suzuki Cup semifinal match against Indonesia on Sunday.
“He's just a friend... What a lovely person... Glad to actually met him! Had a great time!” Azhari tweeted. 
“Yes that’s him... McMenemy feverrr... :))," she added.

The 29-year-old Azhari, who is also a model for men’s magazines, is a magnet for controversy, according to Indonesian media.
She made the headlines in the world’s most populous Muslim country in November 2008 after naked pictures of her and her sister, Sarah Azhari, made rounds on the Internet.

Other photographs of her with men in compromising positions are also shown online in various Indonesian blogs.  The 32-year-old McMenemy was unavailable for comment.
Two Azkals players, brothers James and Phil Younghusband, earlier set female Indonesian Twitter users on fire. 

While their national team was busy playing against the Philippines, Indonesian girls were swooning on the Internet over the Younghusbands.

“I fall in love with nomer 10 philpin #younghusband,” said @flegong, highlighting her post with hashtags to be read by more users of the microblogging service.

Even Indonesian men were bitten by the Younghusband bug. 
“#TimnasIndonesia #TimnasIndonesia #TimnasIndonesia Bonus #Younghusband,” said Agus Siswoyo.

Two good looking relatively well known persons start a relationship. And it has been snowing on Antarctica.

What's new, pussycat??? And who cares by the way???

That's not the kind of news a newspaper should be made for.

But as it is, let's wish them well.

Ha ha ha ha ......
Saya melihat berita ini sebagai selingan berita2 korupsi, ketidak adilan dan hal2 buruk lain.

@Furree Katt,
Yeah they sure do.

@Ria/The Dream Catcher,
I am not sure about that, because even our media are also seemed to be thinking like that.

You are right that this is their own private business.
But because they are relatively known people therefore their public appearance would surely public attention.
For me this news serve as a distraction from the bad news that have been plaguing our people i.e. about corruption, injustice, etc.

Congrats Indonesia!

Of course McNemeny doesn't know anything about Rahma. I think at that time he only think about how to have a real good time with her.

Thanks a lot.
