It’s extremely difficult to maintain the waist coat. This is my third waist coat now. I make them myself. I buy the material, it’s denim which I bleach and then dye red. I cut out the style, sow them back together, put in some zip and velcro. I do that only every 2-3 years. Some of the badges I’ve got are 30-40 years old, real collector’s items, so keep taking them on-off doesn’t do them any good. I am very proud of the waist coat and the badges. Every badge has a very specific and powerful meaning to me.
It might have been donated by a fan from another country or this part of the country or from a particular match which holds a specific memory. I could take any of the badges, and tell you a story about them, where I got it, who gave it to me, the cost. They all have a very special meaning to me. I’ve lost a few, when I jump around, the odd one comes off, but I usually manage to replace them.

p/s: As far as I'm concern, I only have one LFC button and it's on my so-called-kad-pelajar-matrik. Ok lah tu.
