FIFA World Cup 2014

Every 4 years, Malaysians are stricken with a fever, a condition not life-threatening but debilitating with effects that include
  •  a zombie-like state with a single purpose in life
  •  sleep-deprivation
  •  blurred vision
  •  hoarse voice
  •  weight-gain and an increased risk of deep-vein thrombosis (DVT)
  •  excessive use of profanities that is otherwise uncharacteristic of the victim
  •  mood swings that are accompanied with tears of joy/disappointment/anger
The pandemic hits any and most countries not called USA where the population is somewhat immune, probably due to the lack of interest for the cause that they have a different name for anyway. There is no cure for this condition, no drugs or antidote and the only treatment is to allow the malady to run its normal course for approximately one month. This condition is called World Cup Fever and it infects people who fanatically follow the world's most popular sport, football a.k.a soccer.

I do not care for football but the World Cup is after all, the world's largest sporting event. Rivalries can be pretty epic and there couldn't be a more electrifying moment than a frenzied shout of Goooooooooalllll when the team you are betting on nets the ball. Besides, it's great bonding time with the hubs and my boys, even if it means watching the matches on TV during the wee hours of the morning due to the difference in time zones. And if nothing else, some of the players are smokin' hot and worth losing sleep over!
Here's my attempt at cookiefying the world's hottest three. Can you identify them?

Happy Father's Day!


  1. My husband's best friend lived in Brazil for years and married a (sweet!) gal from there. Hubby and that friend entered every draw to get tickets to attend. Sadly, they did not make it. My husband's watching the games on TV though. :)

  2. The cookies are cute and I would have no idea who they might represent since I don't follow the World Cup. I do know I saw a bit on the news about people being excited about the Mexican team and people were watching their match yesterday at the bar at 9 a.m. in the morning enjoying tequilla shots. While I don't mind the glass of wine, tequilla at 9 a.m. would have done me in for the day!

    May the team you want to win, win!


  3. LOL! Love this post, Veronica - so funny and so true! My curiousity is killing me ... I'm off to identify who these hotties are :))

  4. I'm not big on soccer but I do love the World Cup. Great atmosphere. Love the little Brazillian teddies :)

  5. I didn't even know this was going on until someone mentioned it yesterday. I'm so out of what's happening in the world of sports!

  6. I have nooks idea who the cookies represent, but they're adorable! Since I'm in the U.S. (and you're pretty much spot-on about us not being into the World Cup), it's hard for me to identify any soccer player but Christiano Rinaldo...he's such a cutie :)

    Have an awesome week!!

  7. There are a few folks here watching, but soccer isn't as popular here as our football, baseball or soccer. It has come a long way though--it seems to be gaining more and more popularity though.

    Hope your team wins!

  8. Those are amazing! I'd love for you to stop by the TGIF blog and Instagram HOP!
