Malaysian ManU fans win trip to Hong Kong

The lucky Malaysian winners of Astro television's “Manchester United Asia Tour” contest are travelling to watch their favourite team play Hong Kong. The four, who flew off yesterday, were Nazman Fariz Mohd Noh, Mohd Asmawi Johar, Wendy Loke and Mohd Nazli Mohd Nordin. They had each won a four-day trip for two in the contest, which required them to answer questions on Manchester United via SMS.

The Star reports that Nazman, 28, an engineer from Klang, said he was looking forward to seeing his favourite team “live” in action. He took along his father, Mohd Noh Munawar, also a soccer fan. Mohd Asmawi, 27, a business analyst from Johor, "has to keep pinching myself to actually believe it". Loke, 39, an ardent MU supporter for the past six years, said: “I was in ‘deja vu land’ when I heard the good news. This trip is such a wonderful treat.” Mohd Nazli, 31, is looking forward to meeting up with his favourite striker, Ruud van Nistelrooy.
