Yeah Thailand's coup was bloodless... the tanks were just for the intimidation purpose (no one tried to oppose it) or should I note that those rusty, primitive tanks would be scrap metal if they'd gone down to our Southern Muslim regions... down there they blow up cars like crazy with bombs and all that stuff

You see our army is serverely under-teched We're not a nation made for war
Sorry, I meant the Tsunami.
Maria arrived in Thailand literally 3 days later, I think.
With Venus. She met the New Year there.
Somehow I blame the prime minister for the tsunami victims, there was enough time to warn people and Thailand has modern means of communication, especially in the affected coastal areas.
So just because of that I am ok that he's gone.

For me, personally, Tagalog is more of a market language, necessary for commerce, but hardly adequate to cover everything at its present state. It's not my native language, mine's Capampangan/Pampango.

But Tagalog or otherwise, the Filipino languages should be easy to learn. Consonants and vowels almost always go together, so pronunciation is easy. "A" is the most commonly used vowel. (Aba, nakakabasa na pala ako! Loose translation: holy #$%, I can read already!)

English speakers will have to overcome their tendency for long vowels, though. No long a's, no long e's, no long i's, you get the point. Imagine reading the names of people and places in "The Lord of the Rings" (properly, as Tolkien prescribes in his book) . That's how Tagalog is like. No wonder I took to LOTR like fish to water.
Sounds beautiful. I should have known that it is somehow related to polynesian languages...
Now I googled it and found out that
"hot" in Visayan is "init", which is a word you use a lot if you do any computer programming. Cool.

So, guys, yesterday there was an interview with Maria in Russian. It's hard for me to translate it all, but I can tell just briefly what she has told.
So, there were questions about her form, she said she is in a good form, feels herself fit enough to win. She also told that Kremlin Cup is special for her, and after USO it was difficult for her to start practicing hard again but the fact that her first tourny will be in Moscow in her motherland gave her motivation.
Then about the draw. Maria told that the most tough opponent is Mauresmo, but apart from that she doesn't think much about the draw, as the first match is everything that she cares about now. She also very exicited to meet Dinara in quaters
About Fed Cup and Olympics: she said she always wanted to play for Russia and Olympics was her dream since she was little girl. She said she decided to play next year because now she feels fit enough for it. She is ready for the first round with Spain, wants to play it on hard. She also said that for her it doesn't matter who else will be in the team, she'll be ready to play with anyone and she is very exicited about it cause Fed Cup has a special environment - team spirit - that's is very interesting for her since tennis is a very individual sport.
Asked about favourite place in Moscow: she said she has not managed to see much but for now it is Kremlin where Maria likes to watch at dresses of our czarinas of 18-19 centuries - Ekaterina the great etc.
Then about the press. She said this year they follow her not less than last year and she knows very well the majority of the journalists in this room cause they follow her everywhere .
Ah, then a very elegant question about boyfriend The journalists said: "Maria, you create your own parfume, you design your dresses and play with Prince racket. So can you probably design a prince of your own - he is a blond or dark-haired man, he's generous, smart and so on.
Everyone including Maria laughed . But then she answered that she doesn't choose them by some criteria, it doesn't matter if he is blond or not and so on.
There were also some other questions if you are interested - I can write them later. Hope with my poor English you had a chance to understand what I've written..

Oh gosh...thank you. Your English is not bad at all. I can understand them perfectly. Thanx again. Just so wonderful to have someone on the other side of the continent to give us all these tidbits and info of Masha when she's in Moscow. We owe you a lot

Do continue with what you are doing, my friend

Masha...can't wait to see you in action. Hopefully tomorrow

Some other questions:
What does Maria do here when she's not training? She said she goes to different restaurants, likes to eat very much Did some shopping and would like to visit Red Square once again but hasn't managed to do it yet.
She was also asked about the meeting with President of International Olympic Committee Roggey (not sure about spelling) - he is in Moscow now. Maria answered that they only became acquainted and have not discussed anything, but probably will in future.
Then.. why Moscow is not in the 10 favorites cities that Maria mentioned on her website? The answer was that she hasn't spent much time in Moscow yet, so she has to stay here a little bit more time to mention it on web site, - joked Maria
They also asked about her cousin - Dasha. Maria said that Dasha is training in Florida for 2 years already, but the last time Maria saw her was a year ago so she can't say how well she plays at the moment.
About the courts. Maria said the court is a bit better than last year - not so sticky, but still rather slow .

So Maria hasn't seen Dasha in a year....I guess they're not exactly a close-knit family.

Especially if they have both been in Florida and Masha hasn't take the time to go see her, I'm sure after she won USO Dasha would have liked to see her!

Thanks a lot for the translation.
I've promised myself to learn Russian some day, but atm it just doesn't fit on the top of my to-do-list. Your English is just fine btw, so no need to worry.
