Today's an almost surreal day. First news that greeted me was the shocking and tragic death of the King of Pop, MJ. 

My reaction?

"Whaaaaat!".

Not the what, what, but the Chris Rock/Tucker (cann't tell the difference between the both of them) kinda Whaaaat?!

Anyway, been following the news, and all major news wires are showcasing the man and his legend. And it's a nice touch on the part of our local radio stations to do a tribute.

It's funny how all the accolates pour in once someone passes away given that MJ has been receiving a fair amount of stick from few parties before his death (and after it as well I'm sure).

Anyway, it's been pretty shocking to know that one of music's most iconic and cross cultural artist has died. And needless to say the masses of people he has inspired throughout his life, no matter how weird some of his behaviour may have been. At the end of the day, in terms of talent, artistry and entertainment, Michael is among the top of the order.

I like what the ever reflective John Mayer said on his Twitter site.

"I truly hope he is memorialized as the '83 moonwalking, MTV owning, mesmerizing, unstoppable, invincible Michael Jackson."

Twitter seems rather cool. weird.

And I thought no news could surpassed Murray's masterclass drubbing of Gulbis at Wimby.

Moving on to better news. Malaysia is about to host an ATP 250 level tournament!

And given the lineup, it promises to be pretty exciting!

Davydenko, Nikolay
Ferrer, David
Gonzalez, Fernando
Monfils, Gael
Nishikori, Kei
Soderling, Robin
Verdasco, Fernando

Sweet.

Especially Ferru! That guy's a fighter on the court. And I know a certain someone would be anticipating her Swedish meatball. ;)

It's apt to end with this. Inspirational.
