In a heartwarming and hilarious incident, Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeoh recently stepped onto the turf to join a football clinic co-organised by the National Sports Council (NSC) and the Bangi Junior Football Club (KBJB).
Picture this: hundreds of energetic schoolchildren, fueled by their parents' cheers, diving into the world of soccer, hoping to score some awesome goals while learning the basics of the game. It was a sight to behold, and the Minister was there to witness it all.

To add more excitement to the event, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Bangi, Syahredzan Johan, and the former Assemblyperson for Sungai Ramal, Mazwan Johar, also came to show their support. Talk about a star-studded soccer affair!
But the real star of the day was an adorable primary school student who managed to leave a lasting impression on the Minister with his cheeky wit. While chatting with Hannah Yeoh, this little rascal presented her with a rather puzzling riddle—a classic pickup line in disguise.
In front of all his friends, this little smooth talker slyly held up his thumb and asked the Minister what finger he was showing her. Now, you can imagine the Minister's confusion. Was this a trick? A clever prank, perhaps? She had her doubts but decided to play along anyway.
With a mischievous grin, the young boy proceeded to name each finger, one by one, in Bahasa Malaysia, starting from the thumb, until he reached 'Jari Manis'—the ring finger. And that's when he unleashed his secret weapon, the smoothest pickup line ever witnessed at a football clinic:
"This is the Jari Manis, but it's not sweet. Because what's sweet is you."
The crowd went wild! The unexpected charm of this tiny Romeo tickled everyone's funny bone, including Minister Hannah Yeoh herself, who couldn't help but burst into laughter. Who knew a football clinic could turn into a comedy show?
The beautiful moment was captured on the Youth and Sports Minister's Facebook Live, and thanks to Dr Rais Hussin, it made its way to Twitter and soon became the talk of the town. A heartwarming and side-splitting encounter, proving that children truly have an uncanny ability to bring joy and laughter to any occasion.
It's moments like these that remind us of the simple pleasures in life—a good laugh, genuine connections, and the undeniable sweetness of innocent compliments. As the young boy's smooth words echoed through the field, he unknowingly touched the hearts of everyone present, spreading smiles all around.
In the end, the football clinic achieved more than just teaching soccer skills. It left a lasting memory of a day filled with laughter, camaraderie, and the charming wit of a little boy who melted hearts with his clever pickup line.
Kudos to Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeoh for embracing the lightheartedness and warmth that kids bring to any event. Here's to more moments of joy and laughter in the world of sports and beyond!
