5 Weird Things (Part 5) - Allergic to Cow Grass

I love football ever since I was a kid (come visit me at http://redhalfofmanchester.blogspot.com Update 01 Sep 2010 : http://pangpuarliap.blogspot.com). I love donning on my football boots and run out to the pitch trying to emulate the pros from what I saw on the telly (Big League Soccer) the Sunday before.

I love the goal posts. I love being part of a team. I love scoring the goals. I love the sliding tackles. What I don't love is the cow grass. I have a mild allergy to these little green leafy blades. Not say that I will sneeze uncontrollably or swollen eye/lip or fever or die, my skin will itch lor. Damn gao weh one.

So here's the dilemma lor. On one hand, I love to play football. On the other hand, leg damn itchy lor (maybe that's why I run so fast! hahahah).

So how?

Well, in the end I lun. Mind over matter. Itch then let it itch lor. Bor pian. I guess if want to play football, then this minor discomfort is just a small price to pay lor.

Granted some will say why not play street football. Got lah, I also got play football in the streets (steal roadworks pylons to make goal posts), on carpark rooftops, basketball courts, just to name a few. But nothing beats going out there on the football pitch and playing the real thing.

Here's something interesting that I heard and that is allergic to grass can get you downgraded in the army one. Zhun bor? So kua zhang one har? Not say, I want to get downgraded one lah but with a fractured femur, you don't want also cannot. Fated lah.



Well, this is a short one as far as the 5 Weird Things meme is concerned. I hoped everyone enjoy reading them over the week.

Now, I shall hand this over to the 5 following people.

thank you - was that a 'welcome back'?! :) didn't even know it was called cow grass. it was my brother who pointed out that our grass here is different. he was walking in my garden and said 'wah, you have the posh grass'. i was like 'huh?'... but you do realise that the grass in say in front of raffles place MRT, is different from normal grass across the island??


11. Jaschocolate left...
Friday, 13 January 2006 10:33 pm

12. Pam left...
Friday, 13 January 2006 11:16 pm

Jaschocolate: Wah so fierce. *bish* some more....

Pam: It is indeed a welcome back, no less. Missed you!
If you goto the old golf courses in Malaysia, they still have cow grass greens. Singapore golf course switched to the modern-day Bermuda Grass liao.

The grass lawn around HDB should still be cow grass.
I think your "Posh Grass" should be Carpet Grass. Hmm... let me go back and look see look see.

Agent-66: Ai shay!! Take notes siah! No need lah... outside syllabus one. Exam won't come out one.

Sly: Paiseh... typed too fast.... amend liao.

kIm: Acherly hor, ALL tiny grass will poke through clothes one right?
Ok ok... please dun *bish* me. I believe the tiny grass you are refering to is Carpet Grass also.

Agent-BB210=> free labor leh... -_-''' It was just a holiday attachment thingy in which we select which company to go to. I like animals so selected zoo loh. Then they separated and send us to the different depts. I kanna the horticulture section. They do not know what work to give us and we ended up sweeping dead leaves, repotting plants, etc.

http://www.american-lawns.com/grasses/grasses.html - the different kind of grasses.

Knew that there were different types cos of asking a contractor to re-do the co.'s garden, then the contractor asked us which type of carpet grass we want. Turns out that there are different names, different types, different prices, different uses of grass. Eg. the golfing grass is of a much higher quality than those you see outside in the gardens.

Tuesday, 17 January 2006 2:35 pm :: 
Jaschocolate: Er... insects are animals!!!

Anna: True lah. But I supposed you didn't expect to be taking care of plants when you signed up for the zoo initially right?
