Birthday Wish List

Cindy was telling me, why not list my wishes for my coming Birthday... Well, it's not really my style to tell people what I want you see, I prefer people to observe me and then spring me a surprise! Haha... Anyway, I will, for once, list down things that I want for my birthday. (Practical things lah, don't worry, I won't ask for the stars!)

1. Liverpool new adidas home jersey (preferrably with Gerrard printed! cos' I have no Gerrard jersey, only got 2 Xabi Alonsos' ones) Queensway SC's Weston told me the jersey will arrived on the 10th of Aug 06. Hee hee...

2. Liverpool new adidas away jersey. No news abt it's arrival though...

3. Any Liverpool new adidas training kits! I have only seen one, looks nice. You know I love adidas...

4. Laminator machine. Even though De & Jie and CINDY have told me it's a waste of $$$, I think it really makes my job convenient and not only i can used for work, i can laminate photos for my frens too! Don't need to go to the photo printing shop u see...

5. A handphone? I have always like the Nokia 5000 series.

The new Nokia 5500 (Coming out soon!)
Cos' hardly anyone like it and there's hardly any place that will carry it! You see, I think things that people don't have! Another reason why I like 5000 series is cos' they come with flash light, i can use them in the dark! They are durable, can drop and drop and still won't get scratch!

Alright, so far, I can only think of these 5 things...let you know more next time...

S-League Match : Gombak V Geylang

Actually there's a story behind the taping of this game. When I was at one of Gombak's game, I met this Gombak's player, Oijimi Obatola, who came over to me upon seeing my video camera. He was suspended for the game and was sitting in the terrace like all the fans. He ASKED IF I CAN TAPED HIM playing in the next game, i.e this Gombak v Geylang game. OMG! A footballer actually approached me! So the next time, I asked my school's football team's coach (he is also asst coach for Gombak!) if that fella's motive abt me taping him is to send the videos to other clubs so that he can go for trials with them. My coach told me, "you tell Oijimi, $100 for the tape!" Haha... So far, Oijimi has not called me. If he does call, I will pass him this video for $100!!! Hahaha... didn't know watching S-League match can earn me quick bucks too! (and it is winning Singapore Pools' money somemore!!!)

Something I learnt from my parish church's bulletin today... thought it was really meaningful so share it with all of you! This is only part 1.

. In life do not think how much pain you went thru but for the lessons it taught you.
Not how much you cried but how much you smiled
Not how much you are hurt but how much you LOVED

. Our God is a faithful God. He gives us all the chances to recover from every fall. Do not despair.
Remember even saints may have sinful past and sinners saintly future.

. Enjoy the little things in life for one day you man look back and find they were the big things after all.

. Worry is like a rocking chair. It will give you something to do but it won't get you anywhere.

. Everything about the future is uncertain but one thing is sure. God had arranged all your tomorrows. We just have to trust Him as He leads us.

Young Lions' Asian Games appeal a success!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
This banner was displayed and was signed by all who supported the Young Lions entry into the Asian Games. I signed mine too!

Damn! Even though SNOC has finally gave in to the appeal, their reason really made me made still. "The SNOC could not have selected the team based on emotion so we looked at the performance of the side and how far we felt the could go if they were selected for this Asian Games." WTF lah! Bad Loser leh! You mean if you send the swimming team there they will guaranteed you medals?! Really hate to know the FAS has to appeal so much in order for the SNOC to finally grant them the appeal to participate in the coming Dec Asian Games. I didn't know we have not send any football team since 1990! 16 years of Asian Games and no football representatives for Singapore?! WTF! It's so shameful cos' the people sitting up there are just typical local- Kiasu, Kiasee and are bad loser! C'mon, the world's major events like Olympics, Asian Games, SEA Games are actually meant to bond the different countries' spirit and winning, though important, is not necessarily the most important aspect of these events! But of course, most countries are more or less more concerned about the medals tallies. So if Singapore wants to win any medal in the Olympics, then we have to send more sportmen/women to participate in regional sports' events, i.e. Asian Games! Without competiting with the best of Asia, how can we improve and go and participate on the world stage?

A right winger! Finally!

Jermaine Pennant- Liverpool's 5th signing of the new season.
Yes, Liverpool has finally got a decent right winger! Even though he has had his displinary problem, I have full faith in Rafa in getting the best out of him. He was the player with the most crosses in EPL last season and with Crouch in the penalty area, hopefully, Pennant can supply Crouch with the best possible service!

My Monday (not Blues....)
This Monday has been kind to me. Lesson went well and the kids were in order. When my lessons ended, I marked my books and at the same time, plugged into my mp3 in my laptop and heard this song "In This Life". Suddenly felt so touched by this song. If I was a girl and the guy sang this song to me, I will melt! Haha! Really love Ronan Keating's song even though he always sing cover version.

Hereby, I want to dedicate this song to my
One & Only Love, Cindy......

For all I've been blessed with in this life
There was an emptiness in me
I was imprisoned by the power of gold
With one honest touch you set me free
Let the world stop turning
Let the sun stop burning
Let them tell me love's not worth going through
If it all falls apart
I will know deep in my heart
The only dream that mattered had come true
In this life, I was loved by you
For every mountain I have climbed
And ever raging river crossed
You were the treasure that I longed to find
Without you love I would be lost

In this life, I was loved by you

S-League News

Young Lions 0 SAF Warriors 1 (Johnny Wilkinson 34min)

Attendance : 4227 (If i'm not wrong, this is the highest attendance for any S-League this season! Well Done, S-League fans!)

I was really disappointed this evening as the Young Lions crashed to a home defeat in the top of the table clash between them and the SAF Warriors. I brought Cindy and Min along, hoping my favourite Young Lions, will show them how good they are. The worst thing was, Young Lions played a 10man SAF Warriors in the 2nd half and still couldn't find a way pass the SAF defence. This is already 3 games in a row that the Young Lions have played teams that had 1 player sent-off. 2 weeks ago, it was against Home, then last Thu, Tampines had a man sent off, and they still lost. Tonight, SAF keeper Shahril Jantan was sent off towards the end of the first half and yet, Young Lions couldn't take advantage of their numerical advantage and record a crucial victory over their most dangerous rival.

Sigh.... But credit to SAF, they defended really well in the 2nd half and their midfield was really dangerous in their counter attacks. They could have easily scored another 2 goals with their almost deadly counter attacks. Fandi really got his work cut out now on how to find a way to teach the Young Lions how to attack 10men opponents. They are now 2 points behind SAF Warriors in 2nd place and SAF still have a game in hand. Really fatal blow to the Young Lions' championship hope... Take a look at the Table here.

This coming Wednesday, Young Lions will have a chance to continue their cup dream in the Singapore Cup against Woodlands, let's hope they can beat Woodlands and move closer to clinching a trophy for the first time!

Liverpool Pre Season Match
Liverpool continue their pre-season without big stars like Alonso, Garcia, Gerrard, Crouch, Sissoko with a slim win over Crewe. Craig Lindfield, a youngster who played for the U-18, scored the winner. Fowler's cheeky backheel found Lindfield, who smashed the ball into the top left corner! What a goal!

The Dead Man's Chest

I didn't know Pirates of the Caribbean is action cum humorous show until I watched the sequel of the first one recently. Johnny Depp was his usual funny self. I don't call myself a fan of his but I really think he is one hell of an actor! His impersonation of Edward Scissors' hand, Mr Wonker in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had left a deep impression in my mind. In this current episode, I finally witnessed the beautiful Keira Knightley's acting. I have heard alot about her but this is the very first time I see her act! Orlando Bloom! No wonder my twin thinks he is handsome! Then more I look at him, the more he reminds me of David Beckham! I heard from Wati and Alvin that the first episode of Pirates were better, funnier! Ok, when I have the time, I will make sure I watch part 1!

Who's more handsome???

S-League : Home V Young Lions
10 July 2006

This week I managed to catch 2 Young Lions matches. The first match was on Monday, the day after the World Cup final. Unfortunately, Young Lions lost 2-3 to Home United at Bishan Stadium. The defence was a bit leaky, Baihakkin looks rusty after his BMT and Khairul Amri played his last game before going BMT. Damn SAF! Must take these boys away for BMT so that SAF FC, who is 2nd in the S-League, can catch up with the Young Lions in first place right?! Conspiracy! I caught the actions at the stadium......

Even though
half of the people who were traveling with me thought Taipei was boring...I thought Taipei really opened my eyes to the world! I believed you have seen those mad governors in their parliament, those kaypohs corny entertainment shows, etc... nothing good seems to come out from this place isn't it? But I was actually quite amazed by how disciplined they were even though they were living in a complicated society. At least, they really cared for their country, really cared for the environment! You know, in Macdonald's, there are 2 bins, one for you to dispose plastic and one for you to dispose paper. And the patrons actually bothered to differentiat the materials and disposed them into the respective bins! Impressed! In Sg, people don't even bother to dispose their food after consumption! Sad Sad...... I captured some faces of Taipei and hope you will enjoy these pics and my comments!

Wu Fen Pu. One of many street markets in Taipei. This place is actually a wholesale place that sells mainly clothings and bags, you can't try their clothings as they really sell you at a low price. My travel pals actually like this place because it is cheap and there are alot of varieties!

Cute right? But the owner of this cutey really made me feel sorry for him, as you can see below...

When you are in Taipei, you cannot not go to Ximen Ding. It's the Orchard of Taiwan. I really thought I will see nice posh buildings, but so wrong am I! There are mainly 2-3 stories tall shophouses that housed the latest accessories, clothings, etc... in Ximen Ding.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
They say during weekends in Ximen Ding, you can see many stars there. See, here I chanced upon Vanesse and An Qi Xian! They were having their autographed session when I passed by them. I even saw Zhang Shan Wei, but didn't take pictures of him. I also saw Sun Ho outside Taipei Railway Station.
