Football (or soccer in American) is one of the most popular sports in the world. Every four years, all eyes are glued to TV screen at home, watching their favourite world-class teams and players play. World Cup is undoubtedly the most entertaining tournament in the history of sports and football!
But what we do not know is that, somehow, football has ‘a positive correlation with the oil and gas industry‘. Yes, believe it or not, it is true!
Today when I woke up, I realised that I was at home and not outside in the forest. That is not unusual.
In my dream, I had a nice nap on a hammock at a beautiful tropical beach, and it had to be a “super white beach,” not some average beaches I can easily find in peninsula Malaysia! Coconut trees surrounded the pondok (hut) where I stayed, and beyond the secluded beach zone, there was a vast tropical forest with beautiful humming voices of birds and insects.
It is quite amusing to me that the most popular topic in social media today is “oil price hike“. Almost every Whatsapp group that I am part of talks about the RON97 gasoline MYR0.07 price increase! The ups and downs of fuel prices in Malaysia should not surprise us because many elements contribute to the volatility, not only in my home country but also globally. In short, the upward trend is not so surprising because of the geopolitical events around us.
About two weeks ago, I presented a paper to “a curious group of students” who wanted to know about the oil and gas industry. The presentation was made online, live via google hangout and a youtube channel. I think that the event went well, and so was my performance!
