Strange ‘Ting’ can and does happen once in a while

MIRI: Piasau assemblyman Datuk Sebastian Ting went to close a futsal tournament at Piasau Industrial Estate at 4pm yesterday.

As usual, reporters, too, went to the venue to provide coverage.

Nothing unusual about that except that the tournament would be held only next month!

Ting said nobody told him that the tournament had been rescheduled, and staff at the privately owned futsal centre apologised for the miscommunication.

A Chinese daily reporter felt something was amiss when he went to the venue earlier and saw the place deserted, except for a few people playing futsal.

The reporter then went to the centre’s office and was told by a staff that the tournament would only be held next month.
