Arsenal FC vs FC Barcelona
2.45am 18 May 2006 (local time)
Stade de France, Paris
Well this is the much anticipated match of the year so far, not accounting for the the World Cup Finals... Why? WHy? WHY?
there's is this penultimate feeling for a person like me who has been supporting this club ever since i was small...real small... 9 yrs old? 10 yrs old? duno lah, forgotten dee...
Barca, Barca, BARCAAAA!!!!!
Let me brief u guys about FC Barcelona and Arsenal FC in this European Champions League...
1. Although Barca are renowned to be a power house of European football for decades, they have only won this elusive competition once, in the year 1992, while being a three-time losing finalist.
2. Prior to this Cup Final, Barca and the Gunners attained the best statistics overall, with Barca bagging the most goals while Gunners hav the steadiest defence of all.
3. There's pretty much of relations between players of both teams:-
i. Ludovic Giuly is the only french star in barca playing against frenchman Arsene Wenger wif his french warriors lead by thierry henry and the like...
ii. Henrik Larsson against Fredik Ljungberg in the Swedish matchup.
iii.Ronaldinho against Gilberto Silva in the midfield
iv.Giovanni van Bronckhorst currently wif Barca,was at Arsenal before being transferred, stil believes Arsenal are stil lagging behind Barca.
v.and of cos Cesc Fabregas (who grew up in barcelona) who recently has been surprisingly named in the Spanish World Cup squad ahead of Ruben Baraja and Morientes, against the Spanish Giants.
4. There's pretty much pressure on Aresen Wenger to deliver the Cup to the Londoners or else they will have to end a yet another trophyless season whilst unlike Barca, they already crowned back2back Spanish Champions...
5. Barca manager Frank Rijkaard has already won the competition twice as a player in AC Milan and Ajax.
6. Arsenal holds the record of of most clean sheets, with currently keeping 10 consecutive clean sheets, with conceding only 2 goals in this year's edition.
7. In contrast to Barca's European glory, Arsenal are making their maiden trip to their very first European final.
8. Should Barca win the Cup, Rafael Marquez will be the very first Mexican to lift the Cup, with legendary Hugo Sanchez failed in his bid for 11 glorious years in Madrid.
Enough of bites? Well, i'm not reli biased over those info i attained from various sources but i just cant find any info that simply suitable for Arsenal supporters, perhaps they prefer to be underdogs, just like wat Fabregas said, they tend to perform better as underdogs...

Deco: Hey Ronnie! Watcha looking at? Kinda like Brokeback, man!!

, Dejected! If tonight Henry looks like this,definitely he is heading to the Catalan giants

Crazy Nite Out

10 people crapped nia? Gimme more!

Well, guess it was yet another crazy saturday nite, wif frens... err ex-skoolmates i shud say... Actually i tot it's gona be like reunion like outing where we gota chat around and crap around and stuff... but coincidently that nite itself there's the F.A Cup final live telecast... and there's is liverpool fanatic fan wif me, W.Y, my old time buddy eversince std 1... So, as expected, went hovering around a few happening places in Penang... As i've said, "happening" rite? So happened all these places were fully packed man! Cracked our heads to brave the traffic in Gurney area and finally got our asses down at Belissa Row...



So, at least W.Y got to watch his Stevie G and co performing at the Cardiff Millenium Stadium... U wont imagine how the electrifying it was at Sega's throughout the match whereby we ( the rests of my frens except W.Y) who were non-liverpool fans trying hard to deter W.Y spirits...Sorry mate! We've got absolutely nothing to do but to "destress" you haha!

Well, guys... this is basically Liverfool Liverpool FC, i guess everyone recognizes... Was at Segafredo to witness this so-called "sure win" for liverpool in the F.A Cup match-up with West Ham United. U see, we arrived when the match were already approaching into the second half ...Still,i'mnot reli into this match, as i prefer disturbing W.Y from supporting his beloved club...

Just curious to mention how much it means to this Liverpool FC, "You'll Never Walk Alone"? Naah even W.Y who has been supporting this club for so so long, whenever Liverpool were trailing the match, u can hear jeers and shout-outs in Sega's, blaming Liverpool dismal performances...I guess this motto is only appliacable when they emerged champions, isn't it W.Y? Haha jk jk...

Alrite, i ain't wanna get myself killed by hardcore liverpool fans out there, but eventually... after a hard fought match together with Stevie-G's luck and precision shot, they managed to lift the trophy, at last! What a relieve for W.Y, haha ( or else he'd buy, wear and parade a new West Ham jersey if West Ham lift the Cup lolz)

Alrite, W.Y! It's time for u to leave Penang and get ur candy-*ss back to Skudai lar... No point for u holding to the Pinang tree, u ain't staying here for this hols, haha!

Everything happened that nite reminds me back of the good times in secondary skool... Things i sorely missed in life nowadays... Argh, anyway there's always holidays rite so that i can get back to my heavenly heaven Penang!

2 weeks in Penang!!

7 people crapped nia? Gimme more!

HOLLA Peeps!
I'm back in Penang, alas!

After gruelling times of exam madness, i can finally look forward for 2 and a half months of boredom now haha... Life in Penang has never been the same as my life in KL, no doubt about that...

It took me a few days for me settle down in my hometown, unpacking my loads of stuffs, and of cos enjoying myself wif nice local food!!! Made me realise how wonderful life in Penang is... Well, my list of "things to do in Penang" started with an indoor football wif my buddies... YEAH!!! after so long departing from each other, we finally get to meet up in a game (our bl**dy hell captain still yet to come back- si haosiao!!!) , of which i was devastated wif extreme fatigue after the game... It has brought me to realise that how weak i am, especially after exactly a month of non-exercise and eat-study-and-sleep routine! Gosh life sucks then! Gradually i began to jog in the evening, daily at the Youth Park, fully utilizing my super-duper free time...

Not forgetting to mention how lucky i am to meet up again with my old time fren, Kah Wai (Dennis a.k.a muscleman)... Now he has become my personal trainer in the gym as well as my fishing master (si-fu haha!) He has all the right idea and provided me with professional training routine of which i'm grateful to have it for FREE! where on earth can i get a personal trainer for free??haha at the same time he provided me wif extra motivation and extra push to go beyond my limits (yea i'm pretty weak, esp my upper body strength)...

At first, i thought it was fun for just trying out at the gym as i never been there before... never placing a high hope for me to stay working out there (i'm always "hot hot chicken sh*t" wan k...) but my first workout session turned out to be quite fun as he never push me and i did enjoy using those machines... from there at least i learn how to use the equipments correctly and of cos the proper posture and techniques in exercising (no questions of his ability and workout knowledge k,...he spent 30k++ over 4 years in bodybuilding!!! absolute dedication and commitment)...

Later on, i went continued my workout session but this time is rather different... Much more different as i realised that i need to intesify my routine... Argh!!! No Pain No Gain, man!!! Holy Sh*t!!! more reps, heavier weights... HOLD ON! why do i hav to suffer all this pain??? but never do i give up, as i'm more focussed to build up at least one small part of my weak frail body... bearing in mind that i don't wanna be looked down as "lembik" chicken sh*t dee... long way to go man... let's see how long will i be willing to endure this...

Yups, yesterday i gained another priceless experience, FISHING!!! Yeah, "patientless" ppl like me shud be practising this rite, exactly... Dennis and two of his friends togehther wif me hiked all the way to Pantai Kerachut just to taste a bit of fishing life there... Plenty of skill to grab from this fella again... At least i've learned how to utilise the fishing rod adee haha... but then again he and his professional-like description really made me salute him man!!! He is a man of wisdom la.. macam macam pun tahu!!! he taught me to set up the rod, proper way to use the reel, swinging the rod, using different types of lure/baits for different types of targeted fish and stuff like knotting the hook and bla bla bla... a fruit trip as i managed to hook up 4 fishes lolz a pretty lucky start rite? haha cracked out lots of jokes on the journey too as we recalled back those lousy-but-funny scouting life we embarked in pfs...

Gotcha! My second catch of the day...


Dat's me braving under the hot sun...
I'm terribly tanned... Oops burnt actually!
My very first fish of the day...

Well, the JOKE OF THE DAY was from a conversation wif Pak Rahman, a senior local fisher from Balik Pulau, while commenting about our fishing trip. Here it goes...

We (Dennis on behalf on our group) : Apa khabar Pakcik? Nak tumpang tanya di sini mana tempat strategik nak pancing ikan? Siakap merah ada tak?

Pak Rahman : Oh, pandai tanya...kami orang laut di sini masak benar ngan keadaan laut ni... kalau nak tangkap siakap merah, kat belakang batu sana ada... bla bla bla

We : Oh...rupa-rupanya gitu...


Pak Rahman : Kamu ni suka pancing ker? Baik betul kegiatan ni... budak-budak seperti kamu ni tahu pancing sekurang-kurangnya tahu sikit kemahiran... ada masa lapang boleh pancing dapat ikan, boleh makan lagi... Bukannya macam mat saleh yang main golf tu... ish ish ish tak tau apa kebaikan mainan tu, satu bola kecik-kecik pukul jauh jauh pulak... lepas tu kena jalan punyalah jauh... lubang pulak kecik kecik...Patutlah orang cakap main G.O.L.F macam Golongan Orang Lemah Fikiran (G.O.L.F) haha...

We : WAHAHAKAKAKAKKA....


Do excuse me for not following the chronology of time in this post and i'm just writing wateva happenings that crossed my mind...
