Need I say more

2years ago we danced with jubilation, this time we lost. We never stepping into that pitch thinking it was 2005 all over again, this time we took the fight to them and they won.

'We lost to a top-class team', admits Benitez

However, while Benitez can take immense pride in leading Liverpool to a second Champions League Final in three seasons, I know I do have pride in them

Gerrard .."You've got to take it on the chin, move on and try to pick yourself up but at the moment it's heartbreaking," he said.

Always next season

Home calling

Daughtry is led by the American Idol singer Chris Daughtry. I love this song! from the 1st time I heard it.... how ironic with my tribulations I this song is like a hammer hitting right on the nail..... It sounds like a guy who's mother doesn't approve of his choice and it coming around again and again...Read the words "I'm not running from. No, I think you got me all wrong. I don't regret this life I chose for me. But these places and these faces are getting old," "Be careful what you wish for, 'Cause you just might get it all. You just might get it all, And then some you don't want. Be careful what you wish for, 'Cause you just might get it all. You just might get it all, yeah. "

Chris Daughtry - Home

I'm staring out into the night,
Trying to hide the pain.
I'm going to the place where love
And feeling good don't ever cost a thing.
And the pain you feel's a different kind of pain.

Well I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I'm going home.
Well I'm going home.

The miles are getting longer, it seems,
The closer I get to you.
I've not always been the best man or friend for you.
But your love, it makes true.
And I don't know why.
You always seem to give me another try.

So I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,

Be careful what you wish for,
'Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all,
And then some you don't want.
Be careful what you wish for,
'Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all, yeah.

Oh, well I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old.
I said these places and these faces are getting old,
So I'm going home.
I'm going home.

A sabbatical

We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon.

A sabbatical year is a prolonged hiatus, , in the career of an individual taken in order to fulfill some goal

My goals - hmmmmm a few,
How long? - Not sure, till I accomplish it I guess
Why? - The writing is on the wall
Determination - Hell Yeah

We always win in Red…

For those looking for lucky omens ahead of the final, AC Milan's decision to wear their white away kit on Wednesday night despite officially being the 'home' side will have delighted many a superstitious Liverpool fan. A quick look back at our past final triumphs clearly shows that Liverpool always win the European Cup when they play in red against teams in white. So just why did Milan spurn the chance to where their familiar red and black stripes? Apparently, white is their 'lucky' colour.

40 heroes.
40 legends.
5 European Cup Final wins.

Here is to a sixth win on Wednesday in ancient Athens and the making of some more heroes.

Ray Clemence

Mixed Bag Part 2

It there was a silver lining, somehtig to save the day then it would have been the unexpected evening. I fren I had not seen almost a year and with much water under the bridge was in town.

In recent times we have both taken different paths and moved on with our lives, in many a sense were close but time, events, actions and space both had scarred and hurt us directly and indirectly. Despite all that happen there was a level a trust that one had for the other and friendship. That was enough.

So with a little food and light drink to help the night along we proceeded to have a conversation that lasted over 3 hours. The space of a year had many question unanswered and the typical Who dun it??? question.

To a certain extend I am gald to have the answers so we can move on, each in their own path and no nightmare to hold anyone back. The questions that need to be asked were asked, the trust still was there. So brutal honesty was good.

We walked away knowing that the other was in a beter position, better place and life does go on. I believe we will still remain frens but as branches on different trees.

One Chapter closed

Mixed Bag yesterday

Hemant Joshi
By all means marry. If you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get
a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.

Yesterday was a mixed bag of sorts.

Morning I was tied up at Petronas trying to resolve the License issue where they and I repeat they had drop the ball. With out back to the wall my boss sent me in to the field to parry, to trust , to sway and get it done. Well its not easy but someone had to do it.

The later part of the morning and afternoon I was tied down with JPJ, this had been my 4th trip there why for a simple change of address. 1 to get the necessary information, 2 to find out that I have to go to the main branch to do interstate transfers, 3 then find out I have insufficient supporting doc, docs what they did not bloody specify despite me asking.

The 4th trip was the straw that broke the camel's back, I cant change the address despite all the docs being presented coz the car is still under higher purchase.

My question is this, I am changing the address on the card to my current, so in the worst case scenario, they have my latest address so all references to the car can be directed there? Right? It would seem despite me moving and the wanting to update my new address so I Can get the summons (if any) is not a welcomed event?

What the fuck is wrong with these bone heads?

So fine a tout came ot me and said he could do it for RM100!!! Can you believe that? So I paid the guy 100 and waited for another 30 minutes only for the tout to say it cant be done? and for all that trouble it cost me 20 bucks.


so i come back to the office call Maybank and they say no such thing? So I have to go to Maybank in Penang to submit to them to get it done?

So much for being connected

Thanks to Fit who gave me the DVD for me to watch Season 1 and 2, I am frigging hooked by the 1st 3 episodes only.. check out the quotes

Dr. Gregory House: I take risks, sometimes patients die, but not taking risks causes more patients to die - so I guess my biggest problem is I've been cursed with the ability to do the math.

Dr. Gregory House: Less money is made by biochemists working on a cure for cancer than by their colleagues struggling valiantly to hide steroid use.

Dr. Gregory House: Everybody lies.

Dr. Gregory House: Like I always say, there's n
o "I" in team. There's a "me" though, if you jumble it up.


Guess what a colleague's wife made them and he brought one big tupperware of it to the office and yours truly grabbed one hehehe and it was delicious.

Country Music - The Thunder Rolls

Yes I do like country songs, horror of horrors, aint a bad thing lol one that come to mine strongly if I might add was this one. This is my fav country singer.. too bad he dun do no more of his songs lol

Wiki on Garth Brooks
Troyal Garth Brooks, born February 7, 1962 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is an American country music singer-songwriter and charity director.

Brooks's music was ubiquitous in the 1990s. He first became visible the year before the decade began, having come apparently from nowhere, and was an immediate commercial success. Lacking the tall and lanky physical appearance typical of some male country stars, he successfully integrated pop and rock elements into his recordings and live performances. He soon began to dominate the country singles and country album charts and quickly crossed over into the mainstream pop arena, selling records like no one else in country music ever had and exposing country music to a larger audience than previously thought possible.

"The Thunder Rolls" tells the story of a wife waiting up late into the night for her husband. As he comes into the house, she smells another woman's perfume on him. All of this is set against the backdrop of a storm, representing the tribulation of her marriage.

Garth Brooks - The Thunder Rolls
Three thirty in the mornin', Not a soul insight
The city's lookin' like a ghost town
On a moonless summer night, Raindrops on the windshield
There's a storm moving in, He's headin' back from somewhere
That he never should have been
And the thunder rolls, And the thunder rolls

Every light is burnin',In a house across town
She's pacin' by the telephone, In her faded flannel gown
Askin' for miracle, Hopin' she's not right
Prayin' it's the weather,That's kept him out all night
And the thunder rolls,And the thunder rolls

The thunder rolls,And the lightnin' strikes
Another love grows cold,On a sleepless night
As the storm blows on,Out of control
Deep in her heart,The thunder rolls

She's waitin' by the window,When he pulls into the drive
She rushes out to hold him,Thankful he's alive
But on the wind and rain,A strange new perfume blows
And the lightnin' flashes in her eyes,And he knows that she knows
And the thunder rolls,And the thunder rolls

The thunder rolls,And the lightnin' strikes
Another love grows cold,On a sleepless night
As the storm blows on,Out of control
Deep in her heart,The thunder rolls

She runs back down the hallway
And through the bedroom door
She reaches for the pistol
kept in a dresser drawer
Tells the lady in the mirror
He won't do this again
'Cause tonight will be the last time
She'll wonder where he's been

The thunder rolls,And the lightning strikes
Another love grows cold,On a sleepless night
As the storm goes on,Out of control
Deep in her heart,The thunder rolls

Aint The View Great

A super solid place to hang out of your own and chek out the KL skyline

If you can afford it, forget about bringing someone here. This view its about you enjoying it alone


A guy goes to the supermarket and notices an attractive woman waving at him.

She says hello.

He's rather taken a back because he can't place where he knows her from.

So he says, "Do you know me?"

To which she replies, "I think you're the father of one of my kids."

Now his mind travels back to the only time he has ever been unfaithful to his wife and says,

"My God, are you the stripper from my bachelor party that I made love to on the pool table with all my buddies watching while your partner whipped my butt with wet celery???"

She looks into his eyes and says calmly,

No, I'm your son's teacher."

I am asking the Questions

“When you are in opposition, someone raises a question and you say, “Good question. Thank you.” Another person raises a question and you reply, “Good question. Thank you.” When you are in Government, you have to provide the answer and not an answer.” – Tony Blair in his resignation speech, May 9th, 2007

Today morning

The song that I hooked on to the past few days and heard it again today morning.

Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl

Hey where did we go, Days when the rains came
Down in a hollow, Playin' a new game

Laughin' and a runnin', Skippin' and a jumpin'
In the misty mornin' fog, Ah with our hearts a thumpin'
Was you my brown eyed girl, You my brown eyed girl

Now what ever happened, Tuesday is oh so slow
Goin' down the old mine with a, Transistor radio

Standin' in a sunlit lane, Hidin' 'hind a rainbow's wall
Slippin' and a slidin' yeah, All along the waterfall
It was you my brown eyed girl, You my brown eyed girl

Do you remember when, We used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da

So hard to find my way, Now that I'm on my own
Thought about it just the other day, My, where'd the times all gone

Can't remember back then Lord, Sometimes I'm overcome thinkin' 'bout
Makin' love in the green grass, Uh behind the stadium
With you my brown eyed girl, You my brown eyed girl

Do you remember when, We used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da Yeah
Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da Oh oh oh oh
Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da

My old ID - DEFCON

The defense readiness condition (DEFCON) is a measure of the activation and readiness level of the United States Armed Forces. It describes progressive postures for use between the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the commanders of unified commands. DEFCONs are matched to the situations of military severity. Standard peacetime protocol is DEFCON 5, descending in increasingly severe situations. DEFCON 1 represents expectation of actual imminent attack, and it has never been declared, except partially during the Gulf War.


This is the condition used to designate normal peacetime military readiness. An upgrade in military preparedness is typically made by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and announced by the United States Secretary of Defense.

This refers to normal, increased intelligence and the heightening of national security measures. Readiness remained at this level throughout most of the Cold War. During the Cuban Missile Crisis, one of the specific conditions of escalating to level 4 prompted the military to replace training (or "dummy") tips with live nuclear warheads on all target selected ICBMs.

This refers to an increase to force readiness above normal. Radio call signs used by American forces change to currently-classified call signs.

This refers to a further increase in force readiness just below maximum readiness. It has only been declared once, during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

This refers to maximum readiness. It is not certain whether this has ever been used, but it is reserved for imminent or ongoing attack on US military forces or US territory by a foreign military power. Use of nuclear weapons is authorized. (State of Emergency.)

Dinner in Kl

Last Thurdays Car Brake Repair

Last week you might recall my car brakes failing one me... got the repair fella to work on the car brakes

Take one for the....

Someone commented I was a very bad person, for what wrote in my blog. That I rejoiced in the demise of a person. Lets pause for a second, I did not walk around wearing a T-Shirt saying "I am Happy the Asshole is dead"
Get real

I went to pay my respects to the enemy. No tears shed, A fren was devastated needed consoling.I consoled end of story. I did not speak bad of him, what I know of him, that will be mine to keep. No point talking about the dead, heck even when he was alive.

I have lived thru life learning to look at the bigger picture, far to many a times I take the hit coz I HAVE to, not because I want to be the hero but its necessary. If I only thought of my self and say screw the world and blurt it out everything about every one and come out clean... hmmmm too bad I am not made that way


These are thing we do and carry to our grave

I will not hide behind my words in my blog but they are my open personal blog, my thought, my feeling, my perspective, my life. Do I not have a right to type what I feel without remorse or willing to take the repercussions for what I write. I be darned if someone was to criticize me for something I have the guts to write about.

An end to a chapter

One night awaits all, and death's path must be trodden once and for all.

As cynical as I was to sound, when a battle is over, when war is over, when you fight is over, you always rejoice, then there is reflection then there is silence. Over the cries and mourning and tears that are shed by other you do feel the passing, yet you to not shed a tear. An enemy is an enemy but a respectable one. A true opponent does not piss in the grave of the enemy. I wont.

Today someone not a friend died. He was close to this fren. Passed away. I received the sms in the wee hours of the morning.

'Dalai Lama had said "It is the enemy who can truly teach us to practice the virtues of compassion and tolerance."

This one did, I never had trust, something in his word, his action, his eyes therefore I stayed away. I did not step in to sway others away from him, or lead a revolution. He knew I did not trust him.

Ernest Jones Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names

He has passed on. This chapter is over

EPL - Making the right decision - Norman Hubbard

From Soccernet

Money talks, but some managers have the happy knack of making it much more eloquent than others do. If the wealthiest invariably prosper, some make the most of their resources and our top 10 buys have made a major contribution to their teams' success.

10. Michael Carrick (Manchester United, £18.6 million): It took months to shed the tag of 'the £18.6 million midfielder', but Michael Carrick has eventually managed it. He has proved himself worthy of a place amongst the technicians in the Manchester United midfield, enabling him to display the range of his passing. On one wonderful night against Roma, a natural clean striker of a ball became a goalscorer as well. Although this has represented an Indian summer for Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, Carrick's quiet assurance ensures he has secured his place long after they are retired.

9. Jonathan Woodgate ('Boro, £7 million):

8. Javier Mascherano (Liverpool, £1.5 million): West Ham may have marginalized him, but Liverpool have not made the same mistake. For an initial £1.5 million, he has quickly become an integral part of Rafael Benitez's team. While central midfield is a position of strength for the Spaniard, Mascherano has displaced both Xabi Alonso and Momo Sissoko and his performance in the second leg of the Champions Leg semi-final against Chelsea justified his price tag alone. It is a rarity for any one player to rank among the best and worst signings of the same season, but Mascherano does.

7. Kanu (Portsmouth, free): Harry Redknapp has displayed a weakness for players he was unable to afford during their prime, but few of his aged recruits have been as successful as Kanu. The Portsmouth manager's estimates of his age may vary between 47 and 54 - though Kanu is officially only 30 - but the undeniable fact is that this is his best goalscoring season since 1999-2000. After only 7 goals in 53 games for West Brom, the Nigerian was a surprise on the list of the Premiership's top scorers until the final weeks of the campaign and even more surprisingly, scored a few with his head.

6. David James (Portsmouth, £2 million): Reputations are often enhanced by absence from the England squad. Certainly David James' has been, though it has benefited more from his fine form at Fratton Park. Reinvigorated by his move to Portsmouth, James has displayed the attributes, principally extraordinary agility and the capacity to make world-class saves, that heighten the sense of what might have been if he could have added consistency to his game. A Premiership record for clean sheets is one reward. So, too, is the acclaim of those who previously derided him as 'Calamity James'.

5. Christopher Samba (Blackburn, £400,000):

4. Joleon Lescott (Everton, £5.5 million):

3. Carlos Tevez (West Ham, undisclosed): Although he incurred his club a £5.5 million fine and the wrath of their relegation rivals and also failed to score in his first 19 games, Carlos Tevez still qualifies as an unqualified success. By a landslide margin, he was voted the Hammer of the Year - and though 84.5% of West Ham fans can be wrong, on this occasion, they are not.

The Argentine, something of a force of nature, provided the spirit West Ham were lacking as well as, after belatedly opening his account, the goals to transform their season and, with a certain inevitability, scoring the winner to secure survival. The Hammers have gone from wondering why he was signed to needing to deter suitors from much higher up the league. West Ham may have received special treatment, but there is no doubt that Tevez is a special player.

2. Benni McCarthy (Blackburn, £2.5 million): Over recent years, no summer's transfer talk has been complete without mention of McCarthy. His prolific form for Blackburn prompts the thought that someone really should have signed the South African sooner. Scoring 24 goals for any club is an achievement but, at just £2.5 million, it is a remarkable return, especially as only Didier Drogba outscored McCarthy in the Premiership.

Besides the total, his range of goals is impressive, with the wonderful shot he unleashed to eliminate Arsenal from the FA Cup perhaps the most memorable. McCarthy joins Christopher Samba, Stephen Warnock, Ryan Nelsen and David Bentley in an impressive stable of signings by Mark Hughes.

1. Dimitar Berbatov (Tottenham, £10.9 million): A signing that has almost proved just too good. With each demonstration of the Bulgarian's class, the rumours intensify: which of the big four want him most? Truth be told, each would benefit from his wonderful touch, allied with an instinctive understanding of space, and the calm, almost casual, finishing. It has brought 23 goals and Berbatov a legion of admirers. They may include most managers, but Berbatov's seeming willingness to stay at Spurs is the most welcome boost they could have. Were he to leave, however, he would be worth far, far more than the £10.9 million Tottenham paid for him.

The Madman,

One day, long before many gods were born, I woke from a deep sleep and all my masks were stolen, the seven masks I have fashioned and worn in seven lives, I ran maskless through the crowded streets shouting, “Thieves, thieves, the cursed thieves.”

And when I reached the marketplace...I looked up...the sun kissed my own naked face for the first time. For the first time my own naked face and my soul were inflamed with love for the sun, and I wanted my masks no more.”

The Madman,

Blogging from Klang - Part 3

By nature I am very obliging, I allow myself to be pushed or painted into a corner so to speak, always looking at the bigger picture... in that very nature many a times I bent way over back to be obliging so to speak. As many a times that has been detrimental to me.

I let people say what they want to say and at times I turn the other cheek, many a time I have cursed myself to be in that position only to allow myself to be painted in again. Many a times I have said never again but then allow a marginal avenue. Weakness? Nah just letting it be. Just me being nice.

For any human being there comes a time when you got to draw a line, people can sms and say what they want, be comical with their statement but some point in time there will be one singular event no matter how minuscule will be "the straw that broke the camel's back"

So with my bat, no bases loaded over the next few days, I am waiting to swing, bring on all the accusation, all the so called theory and solutions and lets hammer it out, I dun mind being painted evil, bad, an arse or wat ever, I been called worse. I been thru worse. If it mean losing people in my life, hurting to get my point across so be it. I been pushed and labels long enough.

I slept for 2 hours last night, writing down events, time lines sourcing from my database of sms, blog, diary. I look at it again and again till about 6am. I said enough was enough it was time to swing the bat.

By this weekend I hope to resolve bout my car, finances, credit cards and family and a few frens issues. This will be the definitive. The last time I made a definative move, I ende don my feet in my aprtment. This so to speak will be phase 2.

Batter UP!!!

Blogging from Klang - Part 2

I was planning to go to Klang but at least not as early as expected. Thursday morning was damage control, sourcing for funds and a few well placed sms and calls resolved that situation.

Dropping the car off at the mechanic, I headed off t JPJ to collect the necessary documents to facilitate the Wira Issues, check into the office to handle some stuff which fielding some calls from Klang griping on some issue.

I comical when people have the courage or rather the brains to talk, accuse, instigate and to a certain extend lay down possible scenarios for my predicament or the choices I made. Yet on one hand they may not realise where I am is a direct and indirect product of their actions (how easily one forgets) on the other hands they are quick to offer solution of hate, pacification (if there is such a word) and white flag just coz they woke up one morning and decide all is well and dandy.

We are human being as well as we hold to our principals and our choices we evolve, we grow, we carry with us the weight (I did not choose the word burden) of it and move on.

There are some who after evaluating events of the past make judgement calls and draw decisions which supposingly you are what they make you out to be. Via phone, via sms the pick on past history do draw something conclusive. For me today, my position as long it makes you happy for you to say what you want to say and ready to move on... bring it on.

I have one old long distant fren who spoke about moving on.. this was an enigma of sorts but despite all the turbulence we have managed to be direct and truthful and trusting when all the signs point the wrong direction. Today all that remain in this long distant friendship is the word directness and trust. Even till now if the need arises I could call on this person for help and I would never get a NO, a situation if the roles were reversed I would apply the same.

So after settling everything, I headed of to Klang with a bat in my hand. So to speak

Blogging from Klang - Part 1

Of all the things that could go wrong on a Wed night was narrowly missing slamming into a big when the brakes of the car fails. Quick thinking of using the handbrake helped avert a disastrously situation but it did noting to quell the thunderous beating of the heart.

Slowly after regaining some measure of composure and with the help of my hand brake and gears, I managed to reach my home safely. I do not know which was more torturous, missing the buss a or the pacifying I had to do to the people in Klang and outstation over the incident. True as the call reflect the care and concern one should have and if the roles were reverse I would have done the same , probably not as dramatic.

Despite that I was SUMMONDED with no allowance for excuse back the next day

Cool Runnings (1993)

I was surprised TV9 was showing this movie last in between Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives this is a betetr option..... its a wonderful movie based on the true story of the 1st ever Jamaican bobsleigh team and how they qualified for the Olympics!!! I have always loved this film, it's very funny in places, and very touching and moving in other places, the characters are all fantastic and the late John Candy is superb as Irv Blitzer, the Jamaicans coach!!

It tells the story beautifully of how the Jamaicans not only qualified for a sport which they never had any dealings with or knoew shit about, but they also competed well against the worlds best and made a lot of friends along doing so!!

This is a great film where you can see how friends are filled with pride when they reach the finish line, also when they don't win. This movie showed what the spirit of the Olympics is really all about.

Possible New directions

Its a bit of a lull at work with the O&G budget ending and the new ones will kick off in June part of my task now is gearing up for OGA and the holding company, as Spider's uncle would say "with great power comes great responsibility" right now with great power comes same salary kakaka so vadai says "Show me the money!!!!"

Its been about 2 month plus since I injured my groin and laid off badminton, hockey and futsal and slowly my pool therapy sessions, I have laid off movies and clubbing and haning out with my regular friends and got to spend more time with Jnr Vadai, and building up my network and more food intake

Among the priorities in the next 2 months OGA, Holding company, Jnr Vadai's sports day, Wira Transfer, Credit Card settlement, starting cycling, controlling my tenant, hmmm and the hits just keep on coming

Painting yourself into a corner

basically it means -to do something which puts you in a very difficult situation and limits the way that you can act

How many times in our lived have we allowed ourselves to be put into a situation like this?
How many a times it has been voluntarily?
How many a time we got suckered into it?
How many a time you got cought unaware?

Such are the fallacy of day to day living, with strangers, co-workers, frens, family we get ourselvesf painted into a corner, its no point crying over spilt milk but some choose to be there till the paint dries.

Yours truly has been in those situation and sometimes even now... soon you realise people are playing the same card, the same issues and ends up somethign over nothing.

Having a chat with a fren yesterday evening brought certain chapter to a close, did not matter weather it was forced out or passively brought out, a milestone is a milestone and sometimes things do come to an end even if we do not want it to. It takes 2 hands to clap.

So we move on, picking up the pieces, like they say friend will remain friends

Contrasting vs contradicting

Like it or not sometimes things are what they seem. Does not matter if we believe them or not what important the people that say it believes in them.

Having said that, 2 day I bear witness to 2 contrasting statements which I totally understand the need to say that. One was not gonna help someone the other .... shit I got to ho and help someone. The the average it would seem contradicting to me it was contrasting because in a matter of 30 minute the circumstances had chanced

Not all can accept this

Men Are Hard To Please

At the expense of of this article turning into a Guy bashing session, I received a lovely email and I loved the humor in this

The problems with GUYS: (A lady's tale of woe)

If u TREAT him nicely, he says u are IN LOVE with him;
If u Don't, he says u are PROUD.
If u DRESS Nicely, he says u are trying to LURE him;
If u Don't, he says u are from KAMPUNG.
If u ARGUE with him, he says u are STUBBORN;
If u keep QUIET, he says u have no BRAINS.
If u are SMARTER than him, he'll lose FACE;
If he's Smarter than u, he is GREAT.
If u don't Love him, he tries to POSSESS u;
If u Love him, he will try to LEAVE u.(very true huh?)
If u don't make love with him., he says u don't Love him;
If u do!! he says u are CHEAP.
If u tell him your PROBLEM, he says u are TROUBLESOME;
If u don't, he says that u don't TRUST him.
If u SCOLD him, u are like a NANNY to him;
If he SCOLDS u, it is because he CARES for u.
If u BREAK your PROMISE, u Cannot be TRUSTED;
If he BREAKS his, he is FORCED to do so.
If u SMOKE, u are BAD girl;
If u do WELL in your exams, he says it's LUCK;
If he does WELL, it's BRAINS.
If u HURT him, u are CRUEL;
If he HURTS u, u are too SENSITIVE!!
& sooo hard to please!!!!!

If u send this to guys, they will swear that it's not true.......
but if u don't, they say u are selfish.....
The moral of the story is.......SEND THIS TO GUYS OUT THERE ANYWAY...
Send it to girls also, gives them some laughter ...

EPL goes to Man U

The table doesn't lie,' he said.'Manchester United have scored more goals than anyone else and you can only say they deserve the title.

'They have been the most consistent side and they also have individual players who can make a difference.

Well done Man U, hate to say it but you have EARNED the title

From the web - The Masks We Wear

Note: I have worn masks and for a fren that trying...this is a good read

All are us have a variety of masks that each of us wears daily. These may be the identities that have been given to us, or ones that we have assumed over time.

As long as we recognize that what we wear is a mask we all are right. But when the mask becomes the seeming reality for us, then our troubles begin. We confuse the mask with the person, and if we are consummate enough actors, so do those around us. Gradually the mask becomes a trap, and we become the mask (as the performers did in the ancient Greek plays who would utter their lines while holding a mask in front of their faces).

Not every use of a mask is negative, however. Masks can help us build our own defenses for the time we need them. They can give us power, or at least the illusion of power, in a time when we may feel powerless. As long as the masks remain flexible and breakable, we can alter them at will, still realizing that we are not what we wear on our face as the mask we present to others.

Lessons...all around us

1. There are many a time when you walk out of the office and you see that is it raining, ita situation your caught in, sometimes you have an umbrella and sometimes dont, at that present moment certain decision have to be made. Must be made, so you make them. No matter if it was to go back into the office and sit and let the rain pass or run in the rain, use the umbrella or just get wet. You make decision based on the choices available and taking into the account the consequences that have to be faced later on.

Life is like that, sometimes things prop up and ask you to decide then and there, so we look at the options, the consequences and make them. You make the choice coz you will live with the consequences... We all make choices sometimes right ones sometimes wrong ones. - lessons learned

I am one of those weird one that dun go about talking my prob to every Tom Dick and Harry, there was a time I kind of used to, to open to to discuss to present my case but not anymore. I dun do that anymore and there are several reasons for that.

Over time I have grown to shield my self, not to be too open because that does not help. Sometimes being open you get hurt, you get used and sometimes people get closer to you then you want them to. There are no right or wrong in this, its a personal choice. - lessons learned

This weekend Jnd Vadai went for a Yoga competition for kids, no Olympics. When they announced him name he came up with the Silver medal, he was ecstatic, despite being a lazy kiddo who does not practice the Yoga he put his heart into it past 2 weeks to practice; weather to win or not to embarrass himself I dun know, but I did not interfere. He grabbed his Silver medal hugging the 1st and 3rd place winner and then came running to me showing off his medal. I was happy for him. Over my shoulder I heard one parent telling the kid that she should have done better and got 1st place. I was like WTF!! Do we put too much pressure on our kids to win everything that we do not appreciate the effort put it hmmmmmm - lessons learned

I laughed with Jnr Vadai as he jokes bout his training when I told him I was proud of his 2nd place, he loved it and so hapi he got 2nd place.... 1st place did not matter to him - lessons learned

2nd place aint the end of the world. Later on we chatted talking bout his school, frens and how he was doing, he had some question for me as I answered as rightfully as I should. Nice times spent with him. We are starting to talk a lot, next week will be his concert, more time to spend with him again.

Man U versus Milan

Clarence Seedorf capitalised on some laughable defending from Gabriel Heinze and Nemanja Vidic to give Milan a 2-0 lead in their Champions League semi-final second leg against Manchester United. Brazilian forward Kaka, who scored both Milan's goals in a 3-2 loss in the first leg, opened the scoring after only 11 minutes.

ish ish ish 3-0 now

cant they even make a simpler thing like an all english final

so much for the quadruple, so much for the treble.... all those show are only jaguh kampung

Bye bye Man u

Benitez also hailed the workrate of his team - and the Anfield crowd.

'Every player and every supporter (deserves the win) - the atmosphere was amazing today.'

Liverpool 1-0 Chelsea (Agg 1-1): Reds pen joy

Dirk Kuyt put Liverpool into their second Champions League final inside three years by scoring the winning penalty against Chelsea at Anfield. With the scores level on aggregate at 1-1 after extra-time, Bolo Zenden, Xabi Alonso, Steven Gerrard and Dirk Kuyt all scored from the spot while Arjen Robben and Geremi saw their efforts saved by Jose Reina.

Gerrard revels in UCL semi-final triumph

Steven Gerrard described Liverpool's penalty shoot-out victory over Chelsea in the semi-finals of the Champions League as 'one of the best'.

The Reds won 4-1 on penalties after Jose Reina saved from Arjen Robben and Geremi with Dirk Kuyt hitting the winning kick to make up for his disallowed goal in extra-time. Gerrard, who will lead his team to the final in Athens on May 23, told ITV1: 'It was one of the best.


Those are the pics we want to see. Hell yeah... the Kops have qualified to the finals against a determined Chelsea side. I must give credit to the Blues as they did not make it easy. The spirit and the roar of Anfield was awesome and breath-taking,

We are going to Athens and hopefully win it again!!!.... does not matter to me if it is Milan or Man U...

A well taken set piece by Gerrard and Agger scoring was awesome start.

Crouch was saved on the line, Kyut hit the bar, Pennat was blocked..... it was amazing as the clock ticked away... and the final scored on Agg was 1-1. Then came extra-time.

Attacking the Kop end the Kops fought and chased with heard lots of HEART... 2 tried but Kyut was ruled offside. Then one superbly saved by Chec..

Then came the penalties it was between Pepe vs Chez

Liverpool 1st kick = Zenden = GOAL!!!
Chelsea 1st kick = Robben = SAVED!~!!!!!


Liverpool 2nd kick = Alonso = GOAL!!!
Chelsea 1st kick = Lampard = GOAL!!!!!

Liverpool 3rd kick = Gerrard = GOAL!!!
Chelsea 3rd kick = Geremi = SAVED!~!!!!!


Liverpool 4th kick = Kyut = GOAL!!!

Dun bother Chelsea

The Aussies beat Srilangka, the ending was a kind of a joke not coz the cricket was bad on one sided but 4 Cricket Umpire made a big boo boo over a simple technicality.


Well done Aussie

Semifinals 2nd leg

This si gonna be a nervy night for me, Kop going into the 2nd leg a goal down with all to play for. I really hope that can do it, inside I have my doubts because the Blues are playing great if the 1st let is anything to go by.

My only solace and light by the candle so to speak it that playing at Anfield..
