Sudden blackout

It was a nightmare for NUSA MAHKOTA. We had been out classed by IM Lim Yee Weng, Ian Udani and Abdullah Che Hassan. Only Muhd Izz managed to save our pride (a little) by defeating Edward Lee.

My game was quite interesting despite seemingly at first as a 'boring variation'.

After reaching the following position 31.c5...

I hastily (I was short of time, but this is no excuse because, I think I still have some time to think) played 31...Bg4?? (diagram)
And to my horror I immediately noticed the fork on e5.
Correct was 31...dxc5 and black holds the game comfortably for example: 31...dxc5! 32.Bxc5 Rxd1+ 33.Qxd1 Qe8 34.Nd4 Ne6 35.Nxe6 Bxe6 36.e5 Ng4 37.Ne4 Rd8 38.Rd2 Rxd2 39.Qxd2 Bf8 40.Nd6 Qd7=
Udani quickly played 32.cxd6 Rxd6 33.Rxd6 Qxd6 34.e5 Qe7 35.exf6 Bxf6 36.Bc5 Qe6 37.Kh2 Qc4?? 38.Ne4! Bxe2 39.Nxf6+ Kg7 40.Rc2! Qe6 41.Qb2! Bd1 42.Nxh5+ [42.Ne8+ mates quicker] 42...Kh6 43.Qg7+ Kxh5 44.Rf2 1–0
